Doosan Bears right-hander Lee Young-ha pitched his longest inning since returning to the first team this season, setting the stage for a team victory .Lee took the mound in the bottom of the third inning of the 2-1 win over the NC Dinos at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Wednesday after starter Jang Won-jun faltered. It was an early start, but Lee struck out NC’s Park Gun-woo with just one pitch.
Lee went on to pitch three innings of two-hit ball, striking out three and walking none to shut down the NC bats .It was Lee’s longest outing since returning to the first team in June after being acquitted of school violence charges. Lee threw 49 pitches on the day, mixing 31 fastballs, 10 sliders, five curves and three splitters. His fastball topped out at 153 kilometers per hour and averaged 150.The Doosan offense scored four runs in the third and three in the fourth to give Lee his fifth win of the season (3-3).
With the win, Doosan moved to within half a game of fourth-place NC and one game of third-place SSG Landers .”It was a game I had to win no matter what, so I think it helped me on the mound that I thought a lot about ‘winning today’ before the game,” Lee reflected after the game.” Actually, after the fifth inning, I was tired and my legs were shaking in the sixth inning,” he said, adding, “I was a little disappointed to get hit at the end.” “I think I accomplished a lot of my goals this season, so I’m happy with that,” he said, adding, “I’m getting a lot of good pitches and a lot of good speed.”
That’s why she’s looking forward to next season with a more positive outlook. “I actually think of (this year) as a preparation stage for next season,” she said, “I have expectations that I can do better next year by preparing with the team.” The confidence is there. “My advantage is that I can throw everywhere because I’ve thrown everywhere,” said Lee, who has been both starting and finishing, “so I will prepare well with the confidence that my ball is better than 카지노사이트 everyone else’s.”
