Lotte Dan Strayley (35) left a little regret in the third appearance of the season. He met Samsung and played a tough game.
Strayley started the first game of the 2023 KBO League regular season against Samsung on the weekend held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 14th and recorded 4 hits (1 home run), 5 walks, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and 4 runs (3 earned) in 4.2 innings. did.
The team is on the verge of losing after coming down from a 3-4 scoreline. If we go on like this, we will have the second loss of the season. It’s not that there was no support from the other line, but the number of points given was slightly higher.
Last year, during the season, he signed a contract with his parent Lotte and returned to the KBO League. He had a good record of 62.1 innings in 11 games, 4 wins and 2 losses, and an earned run average of 2.31. Lotte signed a new contract with a total of 1 million dollars.
However, the beginning of the season is not very good. In the opening game on the 1st, against Doosan, he only allowed 3 runs in 5 innings, 4 hits, 3 walks, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. In the game against KT on the 8th, he recorded 7 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 7 strikeouts and 5 runs (4 earned) in 6 innings. I couldn’t see him when he was at his best.
He made his third appearance that day. It didn’t work out this time either. Especially the 2nd episode is disappointing. He hit the grand slam home run. It is the first grand slam allowed since his KBO League debut. Basically, the bases-loading crisis itself was not made well. Even so, it passed relatively well. This time, he suffered greatly.
It even got rid of the body. He caught two outs in the fifth inning, but suffered a problem with his left hamstring. He did not go to the hospital right away. It doesn’t appear to be anything serious. He couldn’t throw any more, and he was ruthlessly beaten.
In the bottom of the first inning, Ja-wook Koo got a heavy hit, but Ji-chan Kim induced a grounder to first base and caught the lead runner. He blocked Jose Pirella with a ground ball to third base, and struck out Kang Min-ho to end the inning.
At the end of the second inning, Jae-il Oh walked and Dong-yeop Kim hit the ball. Lee Won-seok was treated as a floating ball to the second baseman, and Lee Seong-gyu hit the third baseman with a strong hit. All the runners survived because Han Dong-hee could not catch the ball. It was recorded as a catch error.
Next, Lee Jae-hyeon hit the left wall with a home run. In the count of 1-1, the third fastball went high in the middle. It was a mistake, and the price was high. Lee Jae-hyun became the victim of his personal career No. 1 grand slam.
He gave Ja-wook Koo another walk. However, catcher Jung Bo-geun sniped Koo Ja-wook, who attempted to steal bases while Kim Ji-chan was at bat, and Kim Ji-chan was treated as a fly ball by center fielder, ending the inning.
In the bottom of the 3rd inning, Pirella was blocked with a shortstop ground ball, and Kang Min-ho subdued it with a fly ball from center fielder. He gave Oh Jae-il a walk, but Kim Dong-yeop struck out and ended the inning.
In the bottom of the 4th inning, Lee Won-seok, the leader, got a hit to the left. After catching Lee Seong-gyu with a floating ball to second baseman, he allowed Lee Jae-hyun to walk. While Koo Ja-wook was grounded to first base, runners advanced and were driven to second base, second base, and third base. He ended the inning by putting Kim Ji-chan to sleep with a ground ball to second base. 스포츠토토
In the bottom of the 5th, he was in trouble again. He gave a hit to Pirella and a left-handed hit to Kang Min-ho. It was two outs after blocking Oh Jae-il with a fly ball in right field and striking out Kim Dong-yeop, but Lee Won-seok allowed a walk and the bases were loaded with two outs.
Came off the mound here. Something seemed wrong. A trainer and interpreter came up to check on Strayley’s condition. Afterwards, pitching coach Bae Young-soo came up and lowered Strayley.
Kim Do-gyu took the mound as the second pitcher. Kim Do-gyu struck out Lee Seong-gyu, and Strayley’s run did not go up any more.
