“It was not strange to win.”
Dan Strayley, the “hairy ace” of the Lotte Giants, did his part in six games. Strayley started in the home game against the Doosan Bears held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 9th and gave up 2 runs with 6 hits (1 home run) and 5 strikeouts in 6 innings. First quality start of the season.
The highest speed of the fastball was 148km, and the slider (26), curve (13), changeup (11), and cutter (5) were mixed.
Strayley became a losing pitcher as the batting line was blocked by opponent starting pitcher Raul Alcantara’s good pitch, but he was able to shake off his sluggish performance and look forward to the next appearance.먹튀검증
Lotte coach Larry Sutton also smiled at Strayley’s rebound. Ahead of the match against Doosan in Busan on the 10th, coach Sutton praised, “I made a quality start for the first time. The command was also very sharp. It’s not strange to win.”
Sutton continued, “I can’t see how much effort Strayley and many other coaches worked behind the scenes, but it was good to see that process came out as a result.” I’m looking forward to it because the rotation will get stronger.”
As much as it succeeded in rebounding once, it became important to maintain the current appearance. Coach Sutton said, “Consistency seems to be the challenge. If you show the sharp control you showed yesterday (9th), I think the next one will be a success. Yesterday, the fastball went well into both ends of the plate. While taking it out, opponent hitters weren’t just aiming for fastballs and sliders, but also curves and sometimes even changeups, which made it difficult for opponent hitters to control,” he said. “I think these small successes accumulate and lead to consistency.”
