The spirit has disappeared. It even gives the impression that the power to hit the ball has weakened. Na Kyun-an (25), who played a pivotal role in Lotte’s starting lineup, bowed her head with a disappointing pitch.바카라
Na Kyun-an started in an away game against Doosan held at Jamsil Stadium on the 25th and failed to complete the 5th inning. He collapsed with 6 hits (1 home run), 4 walks and 6 runs (5 earned runs) in 4 innings, including a 2-run home run by Kim Jae-hwan. It is the first time since the KIA game on May 3 that Na Kyun-an collapsed with 5 earned runs in 4 innings. The 6 runs in one game is also the most run since the KT game on the 21st of last month (6 runs in 5 innings).
He is an excellent pitcher with a splitter that falls on a sharp pitch that hits every corner of the strike zone. He was evaluated as having difficulty swinging with the middle timing, even though he expected that the splitter would fly in because of his fastball. On this day, the jegu itself wasn’t too bad. Just looking at the numbers, it doesn’t seem like there’s anything wrong with the body.
He threw 92 in four innings, with 54 strikes. He actually threw the ball, but since the batter reacted, it is difficult to say that the ball movement was bad. 38 fastballs were thrown, and the maximum velocity was measured at 147 km/h. The average speed was 144 km/h, so the speed was similar to usual. The splitter, which was mixed with the fastball at a one-to-one level, harmonized with the curve, making Doosan’s lineup more complicated.

The combination of a splitter that comes in and then sinks like a fastball on a curve that flies in slowly and then falls, and a fastball combination that sharply crosses the border line is bound to be tricky for batters. The cut fastball, which was thrown as if caught off guard, was also measured at a maximum speed of 142 km/h.
However, there were a lot of hit balls that day. Because I was pushed back in the count fight, I couldn’t lead the flow at my own pace. There are some aspects of Doosan’s momentum that blows the whistle for 10 consecutive wins, but the trial and error experienced in the first year of full-time selection cannot be ignored. The power to kick in the catcher’s mitt seemed weak. It is a type that hits the ball relatively hard, but on this day, the moment the ball was kicked, the grip gave the impression that it was weaker than at the beginning of the season. That’s why it’s considered to be weak.
In fact, since becoming the winning pitcher by allowing 1 run in 7 innings against Samsung on the 6th of last month, the fact that he has not made 5 consecutive quality starts (6 or more starting innings and 3 earned runs or less) is a signal that adjustments are needed. He threw 117.2 innings in 39 games last year, the most in his career, but he threw 96 innings in 17 games this year. He has already digested 81.6% of last year’s pitched innings, so his stamina is bound to drop.
The weight of the responsibility that the young pitcher has to bear is greater because the team has also sunk heavily, with a 50% win rate collapsing. Since he was selected for the Asian Games national team, the subconscious mind that ‘he has to show’ deepens the depth of his sluggishness.
Of course, it’s not a situation where you can afford to give the starters a break. Even so, in order to drive in the ranking competition in August and September, it is necessary to take a one-tempo break.
