I was able to pitch well because the number of pitches was managed well in the early part of the game.”
The performance of Lotte Giants’ ‘glasses ace’ Park Se-woong shone. Park Se-woong earned his 7th win of the season with 5 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 4 strikeouts, and 2 runs in 6 innings in an away game against Samsung held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 17th.
Of the 94 total pitches pitched by Park Se-woong on this day, 58 were strikes. His highest speed reached 148km and he effectively utilized his main weapons, including curveball, slider, cut fastball, and forkball. Lotte defeated Samsung 7-4 and whistled for their third consecutive win.
After the game, Park Se-woong said, “I was able to pitch well because the number of pitches was managed well in the early part of the game, and although the number of pitches increased, I still feel fortunate that I was able to play my role until the 6th inning and come off the mound.”
Ahn Chi-hong led the team’s offense by hitting a 2-run home run to left-center and left-center in the 3rd inning, followed by a 3-run home run to left-center in the 4th inning, hitting back-to-back home runs in 387 days since the Sajik Samsung game on August 25 last year.
Park Se-woong said, “(Ahn) Chi-hong’s consecutive home runs helped me a lot. He believed that concentration should not be lost even if the score gap widened, so he did his best to win the game against the opposing batter. “Of course he conceded some runs, but he decided it was better to get results quickly than to pile up runners.”
Catcher Jeong Jeong-geun, who is like a spiritual battery to Park Se-woong, injured his right hamstring while running base in the fourth inning and was replaced by pinch runner Son Seong-bin. As a result of the examination, I was diagnosed with a second-degree tear in my right hamstring and that it would take three weeks to recover. Park Se-woong said, “(Jeong) Bo-geun was injured and had to sit out during the game. “I hope he recovers and returns as soon as possible,” he said. 토토사이트
After being selected for the Hangzhou Asian Games national team, he emphasized, “I will appear once more before going to the Hangzhou Asian Games, and my duty as a member of the Lotte Giants is to do my best for my club before joining the national team.”
He said, “In international competitions like the Asian Games, every game is important. I think the most important thing is that all the players play as one. Every player goes to a competition and there will be no player who does not do their best. “I will make sure to achieve my goal of winning a gold medal and come back,” he said emphatically.
