Lee Soong-yong, Starting Pitchers will Overcome the Crisis

SSG Coach Lee Soong-yong says, “Our starting pitchers will overcome the crisis well.”

Professional baseball SSG Landers coach Lee Soong-yong expressed hope that the struggling starting pitchers would overcome the current crisis.

As of the 8th, SSG has the second-to-last fewest starting wins (9 wins) and the worst starting ERA (6.80) among the 10 teams along with the LG Twins.

Two left-handed pitchers, Gwang-Hyun Kim and Roenis Elias, are serving as the backbone of the starting lineup, but the skills of the remaining pitchers fall far short of expectations. 바카라사이트

Robert Dugger, who left Korea with 3 losses and a disastrous ERA of 12.71, left Korea, and his replacement, Drew Anderson, will debut in the KBO League against the KIA Tigers on the 10th.

Coach Lee Soong-yong hoped that promising left-hander Oh Won-seok would grow to the next level by reviewing the previous day’s game before the visiting game against the LG Twins at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 9th.

Oh Won-seok started against LG the day before and became the losing pitcher after allowing 3 hits and 5 walks and allowing 6 runs in 5 innings.

He gave LG only 1 point until the 4th inning, but allowed 4 points at once only in the 5th inning when they were ahead 5-1.

Coach Lee first explained, “I judged that the pitch itself was not bad, so I sent Oh Won-seok to the mound in the 6th inning when the score was 5-5.”

When Oh Won-seok walked the first batter, Moon Bo-kyung, in the sixth inning, manager Lee replaced him with Lee Ro-woon.

Lee Ro-woon gave up a hit, a walk, and a sacrifice fly one after another, increasing Oh Won-seok’s earned run average to 6 points.

In the end, the losing pitcher’s share also went to Oh Won-seok.

Coach Lee recalled the situation in the 5th inning and said, “Oh Won-seok must have been angry when we gave him all the points he could give, so he threw a fast ball at 146-147 km/h.”

“I said, ‘I want to,’ and kept throwing, but that didn’t show up in the 6th inning,” he pointed out.

He said calmly, After the game, I thought about whether my words had put pressure on Oh Won-seok, and I felt sorry for him not being able to overcome the difficult situation.”
