LG ace Casey Kelly struggled with an average ERA of 5 points in 6 games in April. The number of walks increased as the cornerwork was slightly off, and the flow of consecutive hits was repeated while trying to make up for it belatedly.

He gave up points from the first inning and was often chased. After the opening, 1 out of 7 games was conceded in 3 games.

Kelly’s first jinx was from the opening game on the 1st of last month (5⅓ innings, 6 runs). He gave up three consecutive hits to kt Cho Yong-ho, Kang Baek-ho, and Anthony Alford right after the start of the game and allowed two runs. In the NC game on the 19th (6 innings, 5 runs), a runner on 3rd base was sent in with a pitcher’s ground ball from 1st and 3rd base with 1 out in the 1st inning. In the match against KIA on the 30th (5⅓ innings, 4 runs, 3 earned runs), his own error in the first inning, 1 company, 2nd base, led to a run.

In the 3 games that had a successful quality start, all 1 innings were finished without a run.

7 innings, 2 runs, the first quality start against Samsung on April 7, 6 innings, 3 runs (2 earned runs) against SSG on the 25th, and 7 innings, 1 run, the best pitching of the season, against Doosan on May 7. 3 games passed the first round safely. One exception is the Lotte game on April 13 (5⅓ innings, 8 runs, 4 earned runs). At this time, he did not give up runs until the third inning, but only allowed 6 runs in the fourth inning.

In the match against Doosan in Jamsil on the 7th, the first inning was almost conceded. However, ‘Golden Glove shortstop’ Oh Ji-hwan’s defensive sense protected Kelly from the first inning.

After giving up an infield hit to lead hitter Sue-bin Su, Kelly allowed second base to be stolen and was driven to second base safely. At this time, Heo Gyeong-min’s batted ball was directed in front of the shortstop, but Oh Ji-hwan’s sight was toward third base, not first base. Moon Bo-gyeong, who was guarding the base, received a throw and tagged Su-bin. Su-bin also tried his best to avoid the tag, but it was too late.먹튀검증

It was a scene where the situation that could have been 1 company and 3rd base changed to 1 company and 1st base. With the help of Oh Ji-hwan, Kelly erased the first runner and escaped the jinx in the first inning by catching the next hitter, Jose Rojas, with a pitcher’s double stroke. After the game, he thanked his teammates for the power to win the second win of the season, saying, “Above all, the good defense of the beasts was a big help.”

On the other hand, Doosan made a mistake on defense in the first inning. Right fielder Yang Chan-yeol fumbled and threw the ball once during a fence play when Oh Ji-hwan hit a double from the right at second out and first base. Considering Kim Hyun-soo’s main effort, it wasn’t easy to get right from first base to home, but this mistake made the difference between an out and a safe. A goal that led to a 2-0 lead for LG. In the end, LG ran a three-game winning streak with a sweeping 11-1 victory.
