Why is the S zone different?” Sutton’s anger… The ‘2504 hits’ legend also agrees “The ball was not caught during Lotte’s defense”


 Lotte Giants manager Larry Sutton once again protested vigorously. His voice, as hot as his flushed face, was captured on the air.

On the 30th, Kia Champions Field in Gwangju. Lotte suffered a series sweep and collapsed. I gave up 6th place to KIA, which I had to face, and fell to 7th place.

The atmosphere of the team, which suddenly became an injury ward, could not be controlled. Previously, starting catcher Yoo Kang-nam suffered a left oblique muscle tear, and Na Kyun-an, who was scheduled to start that day, was canceled from the first team due to a sudden hamstring injury the day before.

The pitcher who filled the vacancy was veteran Han Hyun-hee. Previously, he pitched in the bullpen in the first game against Doosan Bears on the 26th and KIA on the 28th, but on this day, he was in charge of the surprise selection.

Lotte, who passed the first half well with Han Hyun-hee’s 4 innings and 1 run reverse pitch, put in Kim Sang-soo in the 5th inning. Recently, he is the pitcher with the best ball in Lotte Pilseungjo.

But suddenly, I felt the zone narrowed. Referee Lee Min-ho’s hand hardly went up. In the bottom of the 5th inning, Kim Sang-su allowed the first batter Lee Woo-seong to walk 7 pitches, and Park Chan-ho to walk 5 pitches after one out. With 5th batter Kim Do-young, 3 out of 4 pitches were declared balls, and after that, Kim Do-young continued to foul, so he managed to finish the inning after 10 pitches. The number of pitches in one inning reached a whopping 27 pitches. It was a serious blow to Lotte, who had a bullpen day.

And in the top of the 6th inning, with 1 out and 1 base, manager Sutton’s intense protest came to Jeong-hoon’s at-bat. In terms of the broadcasting company’s S zone, it was a strike on the low side.

The problem was that KIA catcher Kim Tae-goon caught the ball downward and looked like a ball, and that the ball Kim Sang-soo had previously thrown on the course was consistently declared a ball. Not only coach Sutton, but also head coach Lee Jong-woon and third base running coach Jeon Joon-ho joined the ranks of protest.토토사이트

Commentator Park Yong-taek also explained, “The border line itself is the ball that entered the zone. However, Kim Tae-gun’s catching was not good. Also, Kim Sang-soo’s ball, which was thrown at a similar height in the previous inning, continued to fail to receive a strike call.”

On the 23rd, coach Sutton was sent off for the first time this season while protesting against Shim Jae-min’s strike zone against Kiwoom Heroes in Busan on the 23rd. On this day, I finished my appeal before going to the exit.

However, Lotte lost 3-6 that day and fell to 7th place.
