‘Giant’s Attack Mode?’ Lotte takes on the lead with successive miraculous come-from-behind victories￼
Lotte, a professional baseball team, raised the momentum for a 4-game winning streak with a thrilling come-from-behind victory. In the 4th week of April, they achieved the best performance among 10 clubs, laying the foundation for a leap to the top ranks.
On the 23rd, Lotte won a 5-3 victory against NC in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at NC Park in Changwon, Gyeongnam. Up to the 8th inning, they were trailing 0-3, and the defeat was deep, but they scored 5 points only in the beginning of the 9th inning, completing the come-from-behind drama.
It is 4 consecutive wins since the 5-3 win against KIA on the 20th. Lotte swept the NC and ‘Nakdong River Derby’ on the weekend and ran for the first four consecutive wins of the season.
Last week, Lotte finished its 3-week home game against KIA with a winning series. With 5 wins and 1 loss, it recorded the highest weekly win rate among 10 clubs.
Lotte was 4th out of 10 teams last week with a team ERA of 3.60. The team’s batting average was 8th at 2.2. It was only slightly higher than Hanwha (109 800).
It means that the concentration shines. Last week, Lotte had 3 out of 5 wins by 2 points. There was one win by 1 point, and the other one was by 4 points.
Lotte first scored 4 points in the home game against KIA on the 18th, but gave up 5 runs only in the 5th inning. Although it was a situation to pass the mood, in the bottom of the 7th inning with 2 outs and bases loaded, transfer student Noh Jin-hyeok’s double hit 3 runs and a come-from-behind victory 7-5. 온라인카지노
Lotte, who was defeated the next day, won again by 2 points on the 20th. They scored 5 runs until the 5th inning, and starter Dan Strayley gave up 3 runs in 4 innings before withdrawing, but Kim Jin-wook blocked 3 scoreless innings. Kim Jin-wook, who won his first win of the season, dispelled concerns about the left-handed bullpen.
On the 21st, Gyeonggi Province was dramatic. Lotte trailed 0-2 until the 7th inning, but drove the game into overtime by giving up 1 point each in the 8th and 9th innings. In the 10th inning, they scored again and achieved a dramatic 3-2 come-from-behind victory. His concentration, which did not miss the opponent’s mistakes such as wild fighting, stood out.
Lotte also defeated NC 10 to 6 on the 22nd. Despite losing 9 to 10 in hits, he carried out an effective attack that scored 4 more runs. NC committed 5 mistakes that day, 4 more than Lotte, and self-destructed.
Then, on the 23rd, the 4th week schedule reached its peak with a reversal. At the beginning of the 9th inning, trailing 0-3, Lotte made the bases safe with consecutive infield hits from NC closer Lee Yong-chan, Hwang Seong-bin and Ahn Chi-hong, and Jack Rex’s right-handed hit. Lotte tied the score by tying Noh Jin-hyeok’s push walk, pinch hitter Jeon Jun-woo’s infield hit, and opponent’s error.
Lotte stayed in 8th place with 2 wins and 4 losses two weeks ago, and stayed in 7th place with 5 wins and 7 losses a week ago. However, with 5 wins and 1 loss last week, they rose to 10-8 and 4th place. It remains to be seen how far the giant’s advance will lead.
