Lotte foreign pitcher Dan Straley (35) succeeded in rebounding in May.
Strayley was sluggish with 2 losses and an ERA of 5.82 without a win in 5 games (21⅔ innings) during the month of April. He failed to make it past the third or fifth inning, pitching only three innings in the last two games in April.
However, he managed to rebound in May. On the 9th, he did not lose against Sajik Doosan, but made his first quality start with 2 runs in 6 innings, and against Suwon KT on the 14th, reported his first win of the season with 6⅓ scoreless innings. He survived with an earned run average of 1.46 in two games in May.
Lotte manager Larry Sutton also liked it. Regarding Strayley ahead of the match against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 16th, “Throwing well against Doosan helped restore confidence, and he showed a good appearance against KT. He has improved not only his confidence but also his stamina. He worked hard to raise it to the state he wanted, and now his condition has improved a lot.”
On this day, Lotte started the starting lineup in the order of Kim Min-seok (center fielder) Jack Rex (left fielder) Han Dong-hee (3rd baseman) An Chi-hong (2nd baseman) Jeon Jun-woo (designated hitter) Roh Jin-hyeok (shortstop) Koh Seung-min (1st baseman) Yoo Gang-nam (catcher) Yoon Su-nyeong (right fielder). put forward The starting pitcher is Charlie Barnes. 토토사이트
Rex entered the 2nd batting order for the first time in the season. Director Sutton said, “Hwang Seong-bin, who played the role of table setter well, is out due to an injury, and Ahn Kwon-soo is also uncomfortable with his elbow. Rex entered number 2 because we made the strongest combination among the remaining players.” “Ahn Kwon-soo’s elbow condition is improving. Today’s training went well,” he said.
New outfielder Yoon Soo-nyeong, who joined this year as a foster player, took the opportunity to start for the first time in his debut. In the match against KT on the 14th, he was replaced as a left fielder in the 7th inning, and in his first at-bat in his debut in the 9th inning, he hit a timely hit against Lee Chae-ho, recording his first hit and RBI at the same time.
Director Sutton said, “It must have been an unforgettable day for Yoon Soo-nyeong. In the second half of the game, he was put in the first team for the purpose of strengthening the defense, and he showed a good appearance at the plate. He hit well-timed hits against first-team pitchers. What I prepared well in the meantime came out at bat,” he praised. /firstname.lastname@example.org
