LG’s Kelly perfect in 8 innings, Lotte’s Na Kyun-ahn sent home early amid boos

LG’s foreign pitcher Kelly pitched a perfect game into the eighth inning to earn his fourth win of the season.

Kelly started the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League 2024 home game against Samsung at Jamsil Stadium on May 25 and pitched nine shutout innings to lead the team to a 4-0 victory.

Third-place LG, which took the first game of a three-game midweek series, closed the gap on second-place Samsung to half a game. The loss ended Samsung’s recent five-game winning streak.

Kelly was the star of the show. She began to throw strikes in the first inning and didn’t allow a single batter to reach first base until the top of the eighth.

She was just three outs away from the perfect game. Kelly took the mound in the top of the ninth, but his two-pitch changeup was hit by the first batter, Jung-Bin Yoon, for a single to center.

After the historic perfect game was broken, Kelly smiled in disbelief and hugged his catcher, Park Dong-won, who came to the mound to reassure him that he was fine.

The steadfast Kelly struck out the next batter, Kang Min-ho, and got Kim Heon-gon to fly out to center field to complete the shutout. It was Kelly’s second complete game of the season, joining Lotte Wilkerson on April 4.

Meanwhile, Lotte’s Na Gyun-ahn, who had won his second game of the season in his previous start on April 19, was booed early by the home fans for his worst pitching performance of the season.

He started the home game against KIA at Sajik Stadium 바카라사이트 and struggled, giving up five runs in the first inning, including a leadoff double to Socrates.

The second inning was no easier. After walking the first batter, Kim Do-young, Na Gyun-ahn gave up back-to-back singles to put runners on second and third, and then a wild pitch. Sensing something was wrong, Na announced a finger injury to the dugout, but the bullpen needed time to get going, and the damage was done when the next batter, Han Jun-soo, hit a double.

Eventually, after giving up eight runs on eight hits and four walks in 1.2 innings, Na Gyun-ahn was pulled early with his head down amid boos from the Lotte home fans.

Meanwhile, Hanwha’s substitute foreign pitcher Weiss pitched six innings of four-hit ball in his Korean debut to lead the team to a 5-4 victory. Kiwoom also earned a 6-5 one-run victory over NC, while KT completed a 6-1 sweep of SSG.
