LG Twins pitcher Lee Jung-yong, 27, threw his most complete game since making his KBO debut.

Lee pitched six innings of three-hit ball, striking out two and walking none in a home game against the Kiwoom Heroes of the 2023 Shinhan Bank Solar KBO League at Jamsil Stadium on February 2.

Before the game, LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop wanted Lee to throw more than 90 pitches to get the win.카지노

Lee lived up to his manager’s expectations.

After starting his last five games in a row due to a gap in the LG starting lineup, Lee had his best performance since his debut. Despite facing one of the best pitchers in the KBO, Ahn Woo-jin, he stayed calm and showed off his pitches.

He kept the Kiwoom bats at bay with a fastball in the mid-90s and a variety of pitches, including a curve, slider, and forkball.

Lee was perfect through four innings, allowing just two hits.

Lee was shaken up in the fifth inning when he gave up a leadoff double to Lee Ju-hyung, but retired the next two batters to get out of the jam.

Prior to this game, Lee’s previous career high was four innings. Lee showed off his power on the mound in the fifth inning.

In the sixth inning, Lee walked Kiwoom’s table-setters Lee Yong-kyu and Kim Hye-sung, and then got Ronnie Dawson, one of the hardest hitters in the game, to ground out to second base. By the sixth inning, he had thrown just 70 pitches.

Lee left without a win, but his season ERA dropped to 5.31.

With the score tied at 0-0 going into the sixth, LG pulled Lee and sent their best pitcher in the bullpen, Ham Deok-ju, to the mound.
