NC starter Lee Yong-jun did not hit any hits in 6 innings and cooked Lotte’s lineup with 3 walks, 5 strikeouts and no runs, but the team’s come-from-behind defeat faded.
5th place NC (10-10) fell into a 5-game losing streak.
The early flow flowed to NC.
NC scored the first run in the second inning with Do Tae-hun’s horseman’s home run. Do Tae-Hoon pulled the first high fastball of Lotte starter Park Se-Woong and drew the first solo shot of the season.
NC did not miss the lucky third opportunity either.
Leader Park Min-woo stepped on first base and stole second base due to a catch error by first baseman Oh Young-soo. Park Min-woo hit home with a timely double that hit the right wall of Park Gun-woo.
He also ran away with a point in the 6th inning.
Leader Seong-wook Kim hit Park Se-woong’s 2nd slider and drew a solo arch for season 2 passing next to the foul pole on the left.
The Lotte batting line, which failed to attack the NC mound and only scored two hits until the 8th inning, exploded when it met opponent finisher Lee Yong-chan in the top of the 9th inning, trailing 0-3.
Seongbin Hwang and Chihong Ahn filled the 1st and 2nd bases with infield hits, and Jack Rex made the base safely with a hit to the right field. Noh Jin-hyeok picked a walk and scored the first goal.
He even followed the luck of the Lotte batting line.
In the continued safe and full bases, pinch hitter Jeon Jun-woo’s infield hit was refracted after being hit by the third baseman. Shortstop Kim Joo-won hurriedly caught the ball and threw it to first base, but the throw completely missed. In the meantime, the runners on second and third all homed, and the score was tied 3-3.
Riding the flow, Lotte succeeded in reversing 4-3 with Yoon Dong-hee’s push walk in the 2nd full base remade with Jung-hoon’s intentional 4-pitch. Hwang Seong-bin added one more point with a timely hit during the middle match.
Lotte Kim Sang-soo, who took the mound in place of closer Kim Won-joong, who pitched for three consecutive days, allowed leader Kim Joo-won to hit, but ended the game without conceding and earned his first save of the season.
Lee Yong-chan, who failed to keep a 3-point lead, suffered his first loss of the season with 5 runs in 1 inning.
