‘Five innings, one run’ trade pitcher’s life story: “I got through five innings thanks to a fast start and induced walks…next time I’ll aim for a no-hitter”


The Samsung-Lotte game in Ulsan on the 7th. It was a no-holds-barred matchup for the championship series. Samsung’s Won Tae-in and Lotte’s Shim Jae-min were the starting pitchers. Based on their names alone, Won Tae-in’s dominance was expected. However, when the lid was lifted, a surprising result emerged. Shim Jae-min was on the mound until the fifth inning, giving up only one run. He gave up just one walk and struck out four.

In the top of the first, Kim Sung-yoon singled up the middle and stole second, followed by a single to right by Koo Ja-uk. He then induced Kang Min-ho to ground out to third to end the inning. In the second inning, Jose Pirela reached on an error by the shortstop, but Oh Jae-il struck out swinging and catcher Shin Jung-geun prevented Pirela from stealing second. Two batters later, Lee Jae-hyun was retired on a fielder’s choice.

In the bottom of the third, Kim Ho-jae singled and Kim Hyun-joon walked to put runners on the corners, but Kim got Kim Sung-yoon to pop out to second base. After two outs in the fourth, Pirela singled to left, but Oh Jae-il grounded out to third. In the top of the fifth, he gave up a single to Kang Kang-ul, but induced Kim Ho-jae to ground into a shortstop-2b-1b double play to end the inning. Lotte completed the sweep with a 2-1 victory over Samseong in the 11th inning, thanks to Yoo Kang-nam’s RBI single.

Acting Lotte manager Lee Jong-woon said after the game, “Shim Jae-min, who started the game, did his job. The bullpen did a great job of keeping us from giving up any runs, so we were able to compete until the end.” “I’m glad we were able to end the Ulsan series with a win and thank the fans for coming to the stadium and showing their passionate support.”

Shim Jae-min, who was named the Man of the Match, said, “We didn’t have a lot of balls, and we tried to make the opposing batters play as quickly as possible. When there were runners on base, I was able to pitch until the fifth inning thanks to good induction.”메이저사이트

Shim Jae-min, who pitched the game of his life in his second start after joining Lotte following his performance against SSG on March 17 (3 innings, 4 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, 2 runs), said, “I wanted to be a starting pitcher, which is everyone’s dream, and I got two chances after joining Lotte. I was very nervous and disappointed in my first start, so I wanted to do well this time and prepared to throw as long as possible.”

“It would have been nice to be the winning pitcher, but the coaching staff and the training staff helped me a lot, so I was able to take the mound in good shape,” said Shim. At the end of the interview, he smiled and said, “Next time, I will say hello to you again after winning a no-hitter.” /what@osen.co.kr
