‘Hope for the top 5’ Lotte, Koo Seung-min and Kim Sang-soo return to first team entry in relay pitch team

‘Hope for the top 5’ Lotte, Koo Seung-min and Kim Sang-soo return to first team entry in relay pitch team

The winning pitching team returns to the Lotte Giants, who are maintaining a glimmer of hope for fall baseball.

Ahead of the home game against the LG Twins held at Sajik Baseball Stadium on the 4th, Lotte called up pitchers Koo Seung-min, Kim Sang-soo, Woo Kang-hoon, and Lee In-bok to the first team, and deleted Kim Jin-wook, Moon Gyeong-chan, Jeong Seong-jong, and Choi Young-hwan.

Koo Seung-min and Kim Sang-soo played as pillars of the bullpen, appearing in 63 games, the most among Lotte pitchers this season. Koo Seung-min has 2 wins, 5 losses, 3 saves, 21 holds, and an ERA of 3.86, and Kim Sang-soo has 4 wins, 2 losses, 1 save, 17 holds, and an ERA of 3.38, ranking first and second in holds on the team.

Both players were out of action due to injuries in September, when the battle for rankings was fierce. Kim Sang-soo was expunged from the September 9 entry due to a torn right thigh adductor injury. Koo Seung-min, who continued to compete despite feeling abnormalities in his shoulder, was canceled on September 16.스포츠토토

For Lotte, which had been running without giving up hope of advancing to the top 5, the departure of two key bullpens was painful. To make matters worse, Lotte’s pitching staff was greatly weakened due to the absence of Na Kyun-an and Park Se-woong, who were selected for the Hangzhou Asian Games national team. In the double header against the Samsung Lions on the 2nd, Lotte lost both games despite the batting line’s hard work in both the first game (8-9) and the second game (6-8), and had to realize the void in the pitching staff.

With 11 games left until the end of the season, 7th place Lotte has 64 wins, 69 losses (winning percentage 0.481), and is behind 5th place SSG Landers (68 wins, 63 losses, 3 draws, 0.519 winning percentage) by 5 games. In fact, Lotte is in a situation where they have to achieve close to winning the remaining games and hope that SSG performs badly.

Meanwhile, Lee In-bok, who returned to the first team along with Koo Seung-min and Kim Sang-soo, will appear as a starter against LG and aim for his second win of the season. Lee In-bok is attempting a victory for the first time in about 3 months since his victory against LG on July 9 (1⅓ innings scoreless).
