Lotte, led by head coach Kim Tae-hyung, was mired in a three-game losing streak as it lost 4-7 to the SSG Landers in the ninth game of this season’s 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on Sunday. The team posted 35 wins, three draws and 43 losses (0.449).핑크알바

Starter Han Hyun-hee allowed four runs with five hits (one homer) and four strikeouts with one out in five innings, while Jin Hae-soo, who followed, allowed one hit and one strikeout in ⅔ innings. The third pitcher, Koo Seung-min, allowed one hit and two strikeouts in one ⅓ inning, and the fourth pitcher, Kim Sang-soo, allowed two hits and one out in ⅔ innings, allowing three runs (one earned run). The fifth pitcher, Lee Min-seok, had one hit and one strikeout in ⅓ innings.

The presence of third hitter Jeon Joon-woo and fourth hitter Victor Reyes stood out in the batting lineup. Jeon Jun-woo played 2 hits, 2 RBIs and 1 walk in 3 at-bats, including one home run, and Reyes completed the 4th base game with 3 hits, 1 walk, and 1 run in 3 at-bats.

Despite struggles by Jeon and Reyes, Lotte was dragged by SSG until the middle of the game. It was painful for starter Han Hyun-hee to score three runs in one inning alone, including Jihoon Choi’s first solo shot at the bottom of the first inning. As Lotte chased after Jeon with a two-run shot at the top of the third inning, SSG seemed to be taking a step closer to winning the game as it scored a run through Park Sung-han’s timely hit with an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Lotte, which was on the verge of losing, did not let go of its hope. Concentration after two outs in the top of the eighth inning led to a run. Jeon Joon-woo, who took the batter’s box with two outs, hit a hit off Cho Byung-hyun, and the follow-up hitter Reyes walked out. Na Seung-yeop, who had the opportunity to get the first and second bases with two outs, followed 3-4 when he called the second baseman Jeon Joon-woo home with a hit to the right field. Reyes, the first baseman, advanced to the third base, and Na Seung-yeop, the batter, settled on the second base due to a throwing error by right fielder Han Yu-sum.

Lotte’s pursuit did not end here. Moon Seung-won, who took the mound with two outs and runners on the second and third bases, committed a wild pitch, and third baseman Reyes homered to balance 4-4. Lotte failed to make a turnaround, but it was a big income that saved the spark of the chase.

However, the team made an unexpected error. Kim Sang-soo, who took the mound as relief pitcher in the bottom of the eighth inning, allowed a walk to leadoff hitter Park Sung-han and committed a foul throw to the first base during Kim Min-sik’s sacrifice bunt. Park Sung-han, the first baseman, passed through the second and third bases in succession before running to the home ground. The veteran pitcher’s throwing error led to a score, and the game changed once again.

As a result, SSG, which regained the lead, added two points in the bottom of the eighth inning to run to 7-4, and Lotte, which lost its will to chase, had no choice but to accept a three-point defeat.

Lotte, which is eying its fourth consecutive defeat, aims to counterattack by starting Charlie Barnes on Tuesday. It remains to be seen whether Barnes, who has not played for more than a month due to injury since May 26, will meet the team’s expectations. The starting pitcher of SSG is Kim Kwang-hyun.
