“Lotte’s first 100 holds”

Sajik against Doosan Bears on the 4th. Lotte won 4-3 with four points in the first inning. It was an important victory that avenged the previous day’s defeat and finished the start of the nine consecutive games with one win and one loss.

At the center of it was a powerful bullpen. “Glasses Ace” Park Se-woong went down without completing the fifth inning, but the strength of the solid victory group, which led to Choi Joon-yong, Koo Seung-min, Kim Sang-soo and Kim Won-joong, stood out.

In particular, the moment when Koo Seung-min, the “Lotte’s first 100 holds,” who took the mound in the seventh inning, complained of unexpected shoulder pain in the situation of two outs and first base, was dizzying. However, Kim Sang-soo neatly blocked 1⅔3 innings, and Kim Won-joong took a breather as he succeeded in making a tough save.

When Kim Sang-soo, who was released from SSG Landers, wore Lotte’s uniform, no one expected this much performance. The focus was on the significance of strengthening the bullpen depth with the recruitment of the previous hold king, who recorded as many as 40 holds in 2019, and a veteran with abundant experience.

It deserves praise as a “reversal performance” that showed a class that did not die just with a record of 4 wins, 1 loss, 1 save, 16 holds and a 3.11 ERA this season. 토토사이트

In particular, he took the mound in 21 games and is responsible for 16⅔ innings in the second half, recording a remarkable performance with a 1.08 ERA. He is on the mound at every important moment without a set timing and plays a role in beating the opponent’s reserve. ⅓Even if he throws innings, he is responsible for the moment that determines the flow of the game.

Koo Seung-min, Choi Joon-yong, and Kim Won-joong, who previously formed the Pilseung Group, also eased the burden. All three pitchers have been in charge of Lotte’s bullpen for the past three years and have suffered from injuries, poor physical strength in the second half, and slumps. In addition to his performance, Kim Sang-soo is leading a shaky team by playing the role of a locker room leader. Rumor has it that they transfer know-how in various fields such as checks and mindset to juniors.

Lotte is taking a step back amid a chaotic battle for fourth to sixth place between the KIA Tigers, NC Dinos, and Doosan Bears. Rather, the difference between the three teams and the third-place SSG Landers has become closer.

Now, Lotte’s possibility of autumn baseball is close to a ‘miracle’. If it becomes a reality, the milestone will be given to Kim Sang-soo.
