Breaking a 4-game losing streak…the name of the root of information rang out in the air.

August 2, 2023 | by

Information Geun (24-Lotte)’s name rang out in the air.

The losing streak was finally over. The baseball team Lotte won a valuable victory. The team won a 6-3 victory against NC in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ at Sajik Stadium in Busan on April 2. The team made up for missing the game the day before after a close game that went into extra innings. It was also a moment to break out of a four-game losing streak. It was their 42nd win of the season (46 losses) and their first win in August. NC, on the other hand, suffered a blow. With a season record of 44 wins, 1 draw, and 43 losses, they missed out on a fifth of the points. They also dropped one spot from fourth to fifth in the standings.

Lotte needed to turn things around. The pace is not good. The team hasn’t been able to pick up the pace since June. After a win percentage of 0.360 (8th) in June, it dropped to 0.294 (10th) in July. Not to mention, they’ve fallen out of contention for the top five. It’s now down to seventh place. To make matters worse, the injury bug bites. An Bang-manim was also out. Yoo Kang-nam was removed from the first team roster on the 29th. He was diagnosed with a left adductor muscle injury. He is expected to spend two to three weeks recovering. Concerns poured in from all corners.

They say that in times of trouble, heroes are born. Called up to fill in the gaps, Info-Keun came through with a bang. Starting in the No. 9 spot and catcher, he roared back. It was the bottom of the fourth inning with the score 2-3. With one out, he took a two-pitch fastball from Eric Peddy and smashed it over the left field fence. It was a 130-kilometer curveball. It was Jung’s grand slam of the season, and it came off one of the best pitchers in the league. Pedi was charged with five runs in four innings. It was his fewest innings and most runs allowed this season. 먹튀검증

It wasn’t just his bat. His defense was also solid. Charlie Barnes earned his ninth quality start of the season (6 innings, 3 earned runs) and shut the door on the back end. Koo Seung-min (1 inning), Choi Jun-yong (1 inning), and Kim Won-joong (1 inning) also pitched scoreless relief. Lee was selected by Lotte in the ninth round (83rd overall) of the 2018 KBO Draft. He started playing steadily in 2019, but was unable to establish himself. That’s why Lotte turned to outside transfusions. But when they needed him most, he came through. With a solid base of information, Lotte has more options at its disposal.
