“We will repay you with a winning game next time.”
A valuable win that ended a two-game losing streak. A good end to the week and a rebounding momentum.
The Kia Tigers swept the Lotte Giants 6-0 in the eighth game of the season at Sajik Stadium in Busan on 4 April, improving to 3-0 against them this season.
It was a bullpen-heavy series. But Lee Yi-ri pitched five scoreless innings with eight strikeouts, and Lim Ki-young took the pressure off the manager by pitching the sixth through eighth innings. The bats came up big in the top of the sixth inning, pounding out eight hits and six runs in one inning. The fans, who filled the away stands with yellow for all three days, were pleased.메이저사이트
“We were able to win thanks to our batsmen’s concentration in scoring big runs in opportune situations, and it was especially encouraging to see that our batsmen hit evenly regardless of the batting order to keep our chances alive,” reflected Kia head coach Kim Jong-guk.
“On the pitching side, Lee Yi-ri pitched five shutout innings to set the stage for the win. He was followed by Lim Ki-young, who pitched three scoreless innings in a tough situation.”
“We are grateful that many fans came to the stadium and gave us great support even though it was an away game. We will repay them with a winning game in the next game,” he said.
