The batter is sunny, the pitcher is cloudy.
The World Baseball Classic (WBC) baseball team, led by head coach Lee Kang-cheol, won a practice match against the KIA Tigers at the Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tucson, Arizona on the 20th, 12-6. Following the first practice game (8-2 victory) against NC Dinos held on the 17th, the team continued its good trend by winning two consecutive victories.
As you can see from the score, 메이저놀이터 the texture of the batting line was beyond expectations. He poured out 19 hits and succeeded in attacking the KIA mound. Including the NC game, there were 33 hits in the two games. He averages 16.5 hits per game. The problem is the mound.
The national team was shaken by Koo Chang-mo (NC Dinos), who started as a starting pitcher for the KIA match, giving up 2 runs on 2 hits in 1 inning. Lee Ui-ri (KIA Tigers), who pitched in the 7th inning, also hit a solo home run from Byun Woo-hyuk, giving up 2 runs on 2 hits in 1 inning. Among the nine pitchers who stepped on the mound that day, most of the pitchers could not block the batter neatly, except for Gwak Bin (5 batters, 2 strikeouts, no runs) and So Joon So-jun (5 batters, 1 strikeout, no runs). As the innings became longer and the defense time increased, the concentration of the game inevitably decreased.
Coach Lee Kang-cheol said after the game, “(Similar to the first practice game), the second game is the same, and I hope the fielder will remain in good shape. It seems,” he pinched. He continued, “I have a plan in my head, but there are players who need to come up (to play the game as planned). I think one or two are fine, but I think I need to watch more.”
Is it because of the adaptation of Rawlings, the official WBC ball? Compared to the KBO League official ball, Rawlings has a low seam and a slightly larger ball. It is an unfamiliar ball, so pitchers need time to adjust. Director Lee Kang-cheol said, “(Among the factors affected) I think there is definitely a ball,” he said.
Considering the cycle of batting, the hitter’s condition may have improved too quickly. Manager Lee Kang-cheol said, “Still, I think it’s good to be a hitter (because his condition has improved). That’s how you can control it.” I am grateful that I came (by making it) to that extent. It is impossible to do more than that. For pitchers, if it is more than that, the season is not easy and it is burdensome. It is okay,” he wrapped around the players.
Meanwhile, the national team will have their third practice match against KT Wiz on the 23rd.
