Lotte Giants pitcher Park Se-woong overcame early struggles to get a quality start (three earned runs or less in six innings), but the bats came up empty.
Park started a home game against KT Wiz in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Sajik Stadium in Busan on June 6 and threw 103 pitches in six innings, allowing three hits, three walks, seven strikeouts, and two runs. However, the team lost 1-4, falling short in their quest for four wins and suffering their second loss of the season.
On the day, Park attacked the KT bats with a fastball that reached up to 150 km/h. Along with 38 fastballs, he threw 25 curveballs and sliders for variety, and 15 forkballs effectively turned the KT bats around.
However, the early start was disappointing. In the top of the second inning, Park gave up two runs on two hits and a walk while throwing 24 pitches. He gave up a straight walk to leadoff hitter Jang Jang-woo, a single to Hwang Jae-gyun, a walk to his “old teammate” Lee Ho-yeon, and an outfield sacrifice fly after a seven-pitch battle with his assigned pitcher.
Park then settled down and pitched a long inning. After throwing 42 pitches in the second inning, Park retired the side in order in the fourth and fifth innings, and in the sixth inning, he got out of a bases-loaded jam by getting Park Byung-ho to ground into a double play. Park was replaced by Kim Sang-soo in the top of the seventh and successfully completed his starting duties.메이저사이트
However, Park was unable to secure the win. He was unable to get the win as the offense held starter Ko Young-pyo to four hits, one walk and one run in seven innings. Park was unable to capitalize on a runner on third base in the bottom of the sixth inning, leaving the mound with a 1-2 deficit and having to settle for a loss instead of a win.
