The message that the command tower conveyed to the athletes in the situation facing the biggest hurdle after the opening was simple. He believed in the power of ‘positivity’ and ordered us to overcome the crisis together.토토사이트
Prior to the 7th game of the season against the LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 23rd, Lotte coach Larry Sutton said, “The message I kept emphasizing from the beginning is the same. I am aiming to win the series,” he said. “However, as you live your life, there are parts you have to go through to reach the top and there are difficult situations. “he said.
Lotte fell into a three-game losing streak after losing 2-4 against KT Wiz in Suwon the previous day. They are struggling as they are 3-12 in June, finishing last in the monthly winning percentage. With 32 wins and 31 losses in the season, a red light was turned on for the 50% win rate.
By May, the season was 27 wins and 17 losses, running in 3rd place alone, threatening the SSG Landers and LG Twins’ Yanggang system, but in just 3 weeks, the win-loss margin was ‘-9’.
Although they are maintaining 4th place as the middle ranks are in trouble, they are only two games behind 5th place Kiwoom Heroes and 6th place Doosan Bears, so the worst possibility of being pushed out of the top 5 cannot be ruled out if the team’s pitching slump is prolonged.
Sutton acknowledged that the team is in a difficult situation. It was explained that the recent performance has deteriorated due to the departure of leadoff Ahn Kwon-soo and starting shortstop Noh Jin-hyeok due to injuries, as well as the deterioration of the hitting feeling of the main hitters.
Coach Sutton said, “It can’t be helped that the main players are out with injuries. We can’t do it. Because of the current situation, we have to find a way with the resources available to us.”
He also said, “After Seung-min Koh recently took over as the first hitter, the batting cycle is coming up again, so this part seems to be a plus for the team.” We are doing our best to make it happen,” he added.
