At the end of the ninth inning, the finishing, 3G consecutive “shaking” with one out count left, and NC’s backdoor worries deepen

NC’s back door is shaken up. Closing pitcher Lee Yong-chan (36) shows difficulties day after day, and even if he beats NC, he draws the team to a victory.먹튀검증

Lee Yong-chan took the mound in the bottom of the ninth inning with a 4-3 lead against Kiwoom at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 22nd, but he eventually stepped down after giving up a walk-hit-ball and creating a two-out full base crisis.

Left-hander Lim Jung-ho, who then took the mound, caught the last out count with an infield grounder, barely keeping the win, but NC, who again confirmed the anxiety of the back door, did not smile very brightly.

Lee Yong-chan is a veteran closer in the league. He moved to NC Dinosaurs in 2021 and made 29 saves last year while serving as a closer. He made 10 saves as of Friday and posted an earned run average of 2.73.

However, his on-base percentage is 0.283 and on-base percentage is 0.333 this season. He is the highest among league finishes. Notably, his on-base percentage increased to 0.294 in May. In the end, he does not lose many points while blocking others, but he gives many hits, making it difficult even if he stacks up runners and makes saves.

Lee took the mound in the top of the ninth inning when his team was tied 1-1 at the match against Kia Tigers in Changwon on Wednesday, and gave up a solo home run to Kia Tigers pitcher Lee Woo-sung to become a losing pitcher. He has lost four games, the most among the team’s closing matches.

In the game against Kiwoom on the 21st, he took the mound in the bottom of the ninth inning with a 5-2 lead, gave up one run after three hits, and after competing for a full count on the first and third bases with two outs, he finished the game with a ground ball to the second base in a difficult situation. He then did not lose a point on the 22nd, but he made a crisis with one hit and two walks to load the bases with two outs in a close game with one point, and was replaced, sweating for three consecutive games.

Manager Kang In-kwon said, “I have not lost ball control or ball control. I am managing my pitching as much as possible in the bullpen. It is true that my batting average has increased a little bit. After throwing mainly fastballs and forkballs, I have thrown a lot of sliders lately, but I have more balls, and I think I have allowed long balls as I go in to countdowns. I think we need to establish our pitching more clearly.”

As has been the case up to now, NC does not have a good alternative to closing pitcher Lee Yong-chan. Currently, both must-win pitchers have little experience. NC has caught up with KIA by two consecutive games on the day and is ranking second. Stable finishing is essential in the race to rank higher.
