Eui-ri Lee (21), the future pitcher for the KIA Tigers, will make her 7th mound this season with three homework assignments.
KIA has a lot of rain. From the 21st of last month, they were on the rise with 9 wins (2 losses) in 11 matches. It was also the KIA that prevented the Lotte Giants from winning 10 consecutive victories. However, after the game against Lotte on the 3rd, it was postponed for 3 consecutive games due to rain, and the good spirit could not be maintained. The regret is greater because Yang Hyeon-jong and Sean Anderson, the starters, were scheduled to go on a ‘one-two punch’ sortie.
Changwon, which plays the weekend NC game, is likely to be delayed due to rain in Gyeonggi-do today (7th). First of all, KIA announced Eui-ri Lee as a starting pitcher.
Lee Eui-ri recorded 2 wins, 2 losses and an average ERA of 2.63 in the 6 games he started this season. On the surface, it seems to leave good grades, but the content is not. Although he gives up few runs, he has only four appearances where he failed to fill more than five innings. He has never had a single appearance in which he blocked fewer than two walks.
Eui-ri Lee is the Rookie of the Year in the 2021 season. He is a pitcher with a low batting average and a lot of strikeouts. However, it is a pity that one of the most important skills for a starting pitcher is digesting innings.
He has to cut off the bad flow in the NC game. He should aim for his first quality start of the season (6 or more innings and 3 earned runs or less). Reducing walks is the key to digesting more innings. Eui-ri Lee is recording 8.56 per game (9 innings). His teammate Anderson is only 1.41. Eui-ri Lee pitched 20.8 pitches per inning, which is too many.
Lee Eui-ri could not fill 5 innings in the match against Rason NC on the 25th of last month. He gave up only one run, with five hits and six strikeouts, but walked four batters, including four balls. He was in danger enough to come down the mound without even filling 100 pitches. 스포츠토토
Eui-ri Lee played 5 games against NC last season and won 3 wins, the most among the 9 opponents. His earned run average (3.46) wasn’t bad either. Noh Jin-hyeok, who was weak with a hit rate of 0.571, left for Lotte, and Yang Eui-ji, who had a hit rate of 0.308 including one home run, left for Doosan. He is also in charge of continuing the rising trend of KIA. In his NC match, he also aims for his own rebound.
NC recently suffered two losses in a row. The opposing pitcher is Lee Yong-jun, who has emerged like a comet this season and is solidifying his position as a starting pitcher. He pitched an average of 5 innings in the 5 games he appeared in, leaving an ERA of 1.14.
