It was okay until the 4th episode. Lotte Giants Park Se-woong, who collapsed at once, was driven to the brink of defeat.
Park Se-woong started as a starting pitcher in the home game against the KIA Tigers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 18th and recorded 4 ⅔ innings, 9 hits, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts and 5 runs (4 earned). It is the most goals conceded in a single game this season.
Park Se-woong, who allowed a run in the first inning in the previous two games, started smoothly. At the beginning of the first inning, he struck out Ryu Ji-hyeok and Lee Chang-jin after a 6-pitch match, caught them with a ground ball, and then struck out Socrates Brito with a false swing.안전놀이터
At the beginning of the second inning, when the first crisis came, Hyung-Woo Choi hit the right hand and went out after one out. In the 2nd and 1st base, Lee Woo-sung made a hit that missed the 3-gap. Park Se-woong seemed to give up a run as he gave a hit to the left to the follow-up hitter Han Seung-taek.
At that time, the beasts helped Park Se-woong. Second base runner Choi Hyeong-woo, who was rushing home through third base, belatedly confirmed the third base coach’s order to stop. I overlooked the fact that Lotte was playing forward defense. In the end, Choi Hyung-woo, who could not return to third base and was caught on a rundown, was tagged out. The second inning ended without a run.
At the end of the 2nd inning, Park Se-woong, who even received support for scoring with Noh Jin-hyuk’s preemptive two-run gun, continued the scoreless streak from the 3rd to the 4th inning. At the end of the 3rd inning, Jeon Jun-woo’s solo shot and Noh Jin-hyeok’s 1 RBI added two points to the batting line.
The 5th inning was the biggest climax. Park Se-woong gave Han Seung-taek and Park Chan-ho consecutive walks, causing the crisis of the 1st and 2nd bases safely. He induced Ji-Hyuk Ryu to ground the second baseman and sighed, but was hit by Chang-Jin Lee with a left-handed hit. In the meantime, third base runner Han Seung-taek stepped on the home plate. It was Park Se-woong’s first goal that day.
The crisis continued. Park Se-woong allowed Hwang Dae-in and Choi Hyeong-woo to hit 1 RBI in a row after Socrates withdrew due to a floating ball in left field. Choi Hyung-woo’s timely hit coincided with right fielder Jack Rex’s catch error, and the runners on 1st and 2nd base moved one more base.
Park Se-woong, who was shaken sharply, recorded a wild pitch in the 2nd, 2nd and 3rd bases, and allowed Kim Sun-bin to turn around with one RBI and a timely hit. He gave up 5 points at one point and couldn’t hold on to a 4-point lead. In the end, Park Se-woong could not fill 5 innings and had to hand over the mound to second pitcher Kim Jin-wook.
With Lotte losing 4-5 as of the 5th inning, Park Se-woong will take the second loss if the balance is not met.
