SSG and NC share concerns… Untrustworthy ‘forkball finisher’
SSG Landers and NC Dinos, who met on the professional baseball semi-playoff (semi-PO) stage, share concerns.
The closing pitcher who uses a forkball with a large drop as his main weapon is unreliable.
Because it wasn’t. 카지노사이트원
Reaped 42 saves in the regular season, becoming the first ’40 saves’ in SSG club history.
Seo Jin-yong (31), who became a pitcher, exposed his anxiety at the end of the regular season.
Although he had eight saves in the 16 games he pitched since September, his average ERA soared to 6.121.
He gave up only three home runs throughout the season, hitting one each in the last two games of the regular season, against Kiwoom Heroes on the 13th and against Doosan Bears on the 16th.
The first game of the semi-PO on the 22nd, in which SSG lost 3-4, was also a disappointing game for Seo Jin-yong.
In the top of the 9th inning, when the team was down 1-3, one out and one base on base.
Seo Jin-yong, who received the baton from Noh Kyung-eun to prevent additional runs, failed to stop first base runner Jason Martin from stealing second base.
And after two outs, Seo Ho-cheol was allowed a timely hit.
As a result, SSG trailed to 3-4 with Ha Jae-hoon’s two-run home run in the bottom of the 9th inning, but lost, so Seo Jin-yong’s failure to overcome the crisis became the deciding factor.
NC closing pitcher Lee Yong-chan (34), who ranked 5th in the league with 29 saves in the regular season, is also having a rough fall.
He has 10 saves in 17 games since September, but his ERA is low. reached 5.63.
In particular, in the last 5 games of the regular season, he played only 3 innings and allowed 8 earned runs, resulting in an ERA of 24.00.
Lee Yong-chan rarely regained his standing even after entering the postseason.
In the wild card match against Doosan, he was shaken by allowing 3 runs in 1⅓ innings and barely got a save, and in the first game of the semi-PO match against SSG, he hit a home run and recorded an embarrassing save by allowing 2 runs in 1 inning.
In 2 postseason games this year, they have 2 saves and an ERA of 19.29.
Both players are disobedient to their forkball control toward the end of the season. The problem is.
You have to have a strong grip to drop the ball right in front of the batter, but as your strength loosens, you tend to miss the pitch.
PO given by Lee Yong-chan The home run hit by Ha Jae-hoon in Game 1 was also a forkball mishit.
As the forkball shakes, there is no choice but to cry and throw a fastball, and the batters facing them have an easier time dealing with the league’s top closing pitchers.
It can be done.
First of all, both benches do not let go of their trust in them.
NC coach Kang In-kwon said after the first semi-PO game, “Lee Yong-chan’s score is However, as a result, he maintained the team’s victory in two (postseason) games,” and expressed his intention to continue to use him.
As the closing pitcher has a very high-pressure job, he was assigned to a completely new pitcher in a short period of time. It’s not easy to entrust.
Whichever team, SSG or NC, passes the semi-PO, concerns about the shaky closing pitcher are expected to continue throughout this fall.
