Sang-young Lee gives up 2 runs in 4 innings in his first start since being released—LG goes to bullpen early

Four pitches, three strikes, one walk. Lee Sang-young, who completed his military service with the Sangmu on the 12th, went four innings in his first start in 598 days. He showed signs of nerves early in the game, but at least he accomplished his goal of reducing walks.

On the 14th, Lee started against Jamsil Samsung and threw 65 pitches, allowing two runs on four hits and four walks with three strikeouts in four innings.안전놀이터

He was off-balance early in the game, with both his fastball and slider not having the desired movement and location, but he didn’t walk too many batters. He was fortunate to get some good pitches in front of the plate to keep him in the game.

In the top of the third, he gave up a walk to Ryu Seung-min and a single to Kim Ji-chan to put runners on first and second, and two batters later, Pirela hit a two-run double. Catcher Park Dong-won induced a high fastball against Pirela, but it didn’t get the desired placement and gave up a long ball.

However, no runs were scored after that. From the beginning of the fourth inning, he was balanced and looked better than the previous three innings. His fastball reached 141 kilometers per hour. He used a four-seam fastball, slider, changeup and two-seam fastball, according to LG’s data analysis team.

LG scored three runs in the bottom of the third to take a 3-2 lead. In the top of the fifth inning, the bullpen was activated. As only three bullpen pitchers – Jung Woo-young, Ham Deok-ju, and Ko Woo-seok – appeared in the previous day’s game, it is likely that the team will utilize its bullpen resources to the fullest.
