Barnes-Wilkerson-Park Se-woong-Na Kyun-an’ Lotte starting ‘win mode’ revived
Park Se-woong (27), the ‘ace of glasses’ of the professional baseball Lotte Giants, won his 5th victory after a lot of hard work. Park Se-woong got out of the long tunnel of sluggishness by adding a victory in his 7th appearance after 4 wins. As Park Se-woong came back to life, Lotte rebuilt the selection system from Charlie Barnes (27) – Aaron Wilkerson (33) – Park Se-woong. Na Kyun-an (24), who went down to the Futures team due to an injury, is also expected to return to the first team soon after recovering in condition, raising expectations.
Lotte won 10-6 in the 11th game of the season against SSG Landers held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 15th. Park Se-woong played as a starting pitcher that day and threw 86 pitches in 6 innings, giving up 2 runs, 4 hits and striking out 3, earning his 5th win of the season. It was the first win in a month since the match against the LG Twins on June 23rd.
Park Se-woong tried to change from the existing pitching method that day and effectively dealt with the SSG lineup. Park Se-woong aggressively threw a slider with a fastball of up to 150 km/h and beat SSG hitters. The types of pitches he threw that day were △33 fastballs △13 curves △22 sliders △12 forks △6 cutters. In particular, Park Se-woong lowered the pitching speed and actively used the ‘slow slider’ with a large drop in the game that day to induce a ground ball.
After the game, Park Se-woong said, “Pitching coach Kim Hyun-wook advised me to use a slider that is short and fast, but even if it is a little slow, it has a large drop.” It seems,” he said. He also shared his feelings about his past sluggishness. Park Se-woong said, “While I couldn’t build a win, I thought it was difficult with just the type of pitch I had, so I studied a lot to change the pattern.” I will try,” he said.
As Park Se-woong recovered his skills, Lotte gained strength in the starting lineup, which had been shaken. 스포츠토토 With Barnes and Wilkerson continuing their recent upward trend, and Park Se-woong resurrecting, it is possible to establish a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd starting system. Through this, it seems that we can expect a winning streak system that is desperate for a rebound in the rankings.
Barnes and Wilkerson are doing well as solid one-two punchers. Barnes has won four in five starts since the All-Star break in the middle of last month. It is a perfect performance that reminds me of the time when I received the’Monthly MVP’ in April of the 2022 season. Barnes continues his flawless pitching, recording an ERA of 1.45 in August. Wilkerson, the protagonist of Lotte’s first ‘Team No Hit No Run’ game (against SSG Landers on August 6), has also completed adaptation to the Korean professional baseball stage. Since his first appearance on the 26th of last month, Wilkerson has recorded 2 wins and an ERA of 1.88 in 4 games (as of the 15th).
Lotte is expected to be able to build a more stable multiplier if “Nadeoks” Na Kyun-an returns to his original form on the first team stage. On the 15th, Kyun-an Na started in the future team match between Lotte and KIA Tigers and played 3 innings, 3 runs and 5 strikeouts. Na Kyun-an is expected to return to the first team as soon as possible after completing recovery training and injury checks.
