Lotte’s ‘practical ace’ Na Kyun-an achieved the second Quality Start Plus of the season. 

Na Kyun-an, who showed the most powerful appearance in the Lotte starting lineup by winning all three appearances this season and recording an ERA of 1.45, went to the starting mound for the Changwon NC game on the 21st. He boasted a good pitching with 3 hits, 3 walks, 6 strikeouts and 2 runs in 7 innings, but was unable to add a win. 

In the first inning, Na Kyun-ahn, who was in danger of reaching the bases safely due to consecutive hits by Park Min-woo and Cheon Jae-hwan and walks by Park Gun-woo, led Ah-seop Son to a ground ball from second base. Third base runner Park Min-woo is home. Kim Seong-wook was allowed to hit the ball, but Oh Young-soo and Do Tae-hoon were guided to shortstop infield fly and second base ground ball, respectively, to finish the inning. 

In the second inning, Joong-Yeol Ahn, Joo-Won Kim, and Min-Woo Park were tightly tied to complete the first tripartite inning. In the third inning, Na Kyun-an, who gave lead batter Cheon Jae-hwan a double in left-center, threw Park Kun-woo into right field. In the meantime, Cheon Jae-hwan settled down at third base. Son Ah-seop’s sacrifice fly to the left fielder from the 1st out and 3rd baseman gave up 1 more point. After two deaths, Kim Seong-wook returned to second base with a floating ball and finished the third inning.  메이저놀이터

In the 4th inning, Na Kyun-an, who lightly dealt with three batters including Oh Yeong-soo (first base grounder), Do Tae-hoon (strikeout on a swing), and Ahn Joong-yeol (right field foul fly), finished off Kim Joo-won, Park Min-woo and Cheon Jae-hwan with 8 balls in the 5th inning. In the 6th inning, Na Kyun-ahn, who had to pay Park Kun-woo and Son Ah-seop to ground, induced a miss after two outs and a full count with Kim Seong-wook. In the 7th inning, Do Tae-hoon walked and stole second base, putting him in a crisis with 2 outs and 2nd base, but Kim Joo-won was defeated with a catcher strike not out. Na Kyun-an passed the mound to Choi Jun-yong in the 8th inning, trailing 1-2. 

In the 8th inning, trailing by 0-2, Lotte scored 1 point with Koh Seung-min’s second baseman’s double play, and Han Dong-hee’s center fielder sacrifice fly in the 8th inning tied the score at 2-2. Na Gyun-an, who was on the verge of defeat, took a breather thanks to the batting line.

Meanwhile, Lotte laughed 3-2 after an extended bloody battle.
