Lee started the 2023 KBO League home game against the KT Wiz at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on Tuesday and allowed one run on two hits and five walks in five innings.

Lee, who topped out at 152 mph, walked a few, but struck out 11 batters to minimize the damage and set a new career high for strikeouts in a single game.

The previous high for Lee, who joined the organization in 2021, was 10 strikeouts on four occasions.

After striking out two in the first and second innings, Lee faced two hits in the third inning but retired all three batters he faced to keep the game scoreless.

After adding a strikeout in the fourth inning, Lee’s pitches suddenly faltered in the fifth, allowing four singles and a walk to load the bases.

However, Lee recorded all three outs, including a swinging strikeout of Park Byung-ho with the bases loaded, to finish with 11 strikeouts.

KIA took a 6-1 lead into the fifth inning as the team’s bats came alive.
