Lotte Giants right-handed pitcher Na Kyun-an (25), who had been stagnant for a while in May after spending the best month after winning the KBO league MVP in April, played a scoreless counterattack.
Na Kyun-an took the mound as a starting pitcher in a home game against the NC Dinos held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 23rd and produced a flawless result with 5 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings.
Na Kyun-an’s ERA went down from 2.76 to 2.45.
The highest speed of fastball was up to 147 km per hour, and 39 of the total 86 pitches were selected as forkballs.
He threw 30 fastballs, 12 curveballs and 4 cutters.
Na Kyun-an, who had a good fight with 4 wins and an ERA of 1.34 during the month of April, went through an adjustment period with 1 loss and an ERA of 5.87 in 3 games in May before the match.
However, on this day, he dazzled the eyes of NC batters with his fastball, forkball and curveball with precise control and did not give any points.
Na Gyun-an, who continued the streak of seven batters with one out in the third inning and gave up a hit to NC No. 8 hitter Kim Joo-won, allowed Son Ah-seop to walk after two outs, but struck out Park Young-bin.
The 5th inning was the biggest crisis in the 4th inning, with the Lotte batting line scoring 2 points and leading 2-0.
Na Kyun-an was hit by a double from lead batter Yoon Hyung-jun and left-handed by Seo Ho-cheol, and was driven to first and third base safely.
Yoon Hyung-joon’s batted ball hit the barbed wire at the top left of Sajik Stadium, which could have turned into a home run.
Shortly thereafter, Kim Joo-won committed a wild game at bat and became second and third base safely, putting him in a position to allow a tie with a single hit.
In the crisis of conceding a run, Na Gyun-an induced Kim Joo-won to ground the third baseman with a forkball, and caught third base runner Hyung-jun Yoon, who started home, and changed the situation to 1st and 2nd base without conceding a run.
Then, he threw a forkball to Tae-hoon Do and Ah-seop Son to eliminate consecutive strikeouts and finished the 5th inning without a run.
Na Gyun-an, who usually does not express emotions well on the mound, showed joy by striking out Ah-seop Son and clenching his fists.토토사이트
On the other hand, Son A-seop, who struck out on a swing, turned to the dugout with a devastated smile.
Na Kyun-ahn, who passed the 6th inning without a run, passed the mound to Kim Sang-soo from the 7th inning, leading 2-0.
