In the starting rotation for the opening game, all but Lee Yong-jun were injured. Lee Jae-hak’s replacement selection has not been decided.
With starters sitting out due to injuries or leaving the mound early, what remains is the bullpen’s struggles. As of the 22nd, the NC bullpen threw 85⅔ innings during June and was responsible for the second most innings in the league. On the 23rd, Lee Yong-chan, Jeon Min-min, and Ryu Jin-wook took a break.
In the 3rd inning, Kwang-Min Kwon and Do-Yoon Lee’s sacrifice bunt made Widener 1 out and 2 base, and Jin-Young Lee’s infield hit resulted in 1 out and 1 and 3 base. After becoming 1st and 3rd base due to a relay error, Noh Si-hwan hit an RBI grounder and the number of runs increased.
In the 6th inning, Chae Eun-seong was sent out for a walk, and Moon Hyun-bin’s sacrifice bunt swayed when the runner reached the scoring position again. After Choi Jae-hoon’s ball hit the body, he became 2nd, 1st and 2nd base, and Kwon Kwang-min hit a 3-run home run over the fence behind the left fielder, increasing the number of runs to 6.메이저사이트
It is fortunate that Widener threw 6 innings, but Widener gave up so many runs that he only made 2 quality starts in 5 games since his debut in the KBO League. He has an earned run average of 6.35. As an NC, if Widener continues to be anxious, he has no choice but to get the bullpen on standby early. As a starting pitcher, he is a widener who urgently needs stability.
