‘Perfect day’… Lee Eui-ri ‘7 innings, 2 hits, 9K, 1 run’ season’s first QS+ 

 KIA Tigers pitcher Lee Eui-ri (21) achieved the first quality start of the season (QS: 6 or more starting innings and 3 earned or less). It’s been 8 games.

Lee Eui-ri started the home game against the Kiwoom Heroes held at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 19th and pitched 7 innings, giving up 1 run. It is a record of QS+ (7 innings or more and 3 earned or less) beyond QS.

It looked different than usual. Eui-Lee Lee has never pitched more than six innings in his last seven games. Each time, the number of pitches increased due to the search for the first ball, so it was rolled early.

However, on this day, he was shaken for a while with one run in one inning, and finished the remaining innings neatly. Eui-ri Lee faced a total of 27 batters during 7 innings, giving up only 1 hit and striking out 9 times. He gave up only three walks that were pointed out.

Lee Eui-ri raised concerns by walking lead hitter Lee Jeong-hoo and hitting Lee Hyeong-jong with a fit ball in the first inning. In the end, he gave up a timely hit to Russell in the crisis of 1st and 1st, 2nd base and gave up his first run.

However, he regained stability from the second inning. Park Chan-hyeok struck out three pitches, Kim Hui-jip struck out on a swing after four pitches, and Kim Dong-heon struck out looking after six pitches. Eui-ri Lee finished episode 2 in 4 minutes.

Eui-ri Lee, who finished the inning with a strikeout in the 3rd inning and struck out in the 4th inning, continued the streak of no runs by striking out two in the 4th inning.

He gave up a walk to Kim Dong-heon in the 5th inning, but treated all other batters as criminal hits. On the mound in the 6th inning, Eui-Ri Lee struck out Hyeong-Jong Lee on a swing and defeated Kim Hye-Sung and Russell with a bat. The number of pitches in the 6th inning was only 8.

Even in the 7th inning with a deficit in the number of pitches, he climbed the mound. Lee Eui-ri struck out Lee Won-seok, the lead hitter, and Kim Tae-jin, a third baseman, easily caught an out count.안전놀이터

However, due to a mistake by shortstop Park Chan-ho, Park Chan-hyeok was sent to base, and Kim Hui-jip was allowed a double, facing a crisis with two outs on second and third base. However, Kim Dong-heon was turned into a fly in right field, ending the inning without a run.

It was a perfect day. Lee Eui-ri threw a total of 103 pitches that day, including a fastball (68 pitches), a slider (14 pitches), a curveball (13 pitches), and a changeup (8 pitches). The highest velocity of the fastball was 149 km/h.

The batting line also helped Lee Eui-ri by scoring 8 points at Kiwoom starter Eric Yokishi at the end of the first inning. Eui-ri Lee came down the mound with the requirements for three wins in the season. et16@sportsseoul.com
