SSG Landers’ 7-game winning streak failed. Park Jong-hoon, the expected submarine starter, collapsed. But there were also incomes.
Rookie pitcher Roun Lee (19), who had been expected since the 1st camp in Florida, said, “It’s like the 1st nomination,” gave an impressive pitch.

SSG also chased after scoring 1 point in the 2nd inning and 2 points in the 3rd inning, but it was a difficult situation. The bench only allowed Park Jong-hoon to throw up to the third inning, and in the fourth inning, right-hander Lee Rowun was raised.
Lee Rowun’s debut match was against the KIA Tigers on the 2nd.

Average ERA in 2 professional games is ‘0’. There are many games left, and there may be days when he faces difficulties, but on this day, he clearly showed his presence in his hometown where his family visited the baseball field.
Roun Lee said, “I came to the mound earlier than expected, but he didn’t know how many innings he would pitch, so he pitched with all his might from the beginning. During his demonstration game, his performance in his hometown of Daegu was not good, so he took care to throw well today.”
The family waited for the day his son would start by ‘intuitively’ throughout the three games. Roun Lee said, “Because it is a game played in his hometown, his father, uncle, grandmother, and grandfather came to the baseball field to support him throughout the three-game series. Although it is regrettable that we lost as a team, it is fortunate that we showed a good image when we came.”
He was also satisfied with his pitching.스포츠토토 He said, “I think it was okay overall except for allowing a walk in the first inning. He has good pitch control and strikeout rate, so he is satisfied. He said, “It is regrettable that in the last inning he took the ball count unfavorably and won the game.”
Lee Rowun said, “Personally, I want to play more than 30 innings and minimize walks. He pledged that he wants to keep his earned run average below 3 points.”
