Lotte Giants Na Kyun-an failed to rebound in his first appearance in the second half and was driven to the brink of defeat.

Na Kyun-an started as a starting pitcher in an away game against Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 25th, and recorded 6 hits (1 home run), 4 walks, 3 strikeouts and 6 runs (5 earned) in 4 innings. This is the second 6-run game this season, following the match against Suwon KT Wiz on the 21st of last month.

Na Kyun-an caught Heo Gyeong-min with a ground ball to third baseman after leadoff Sue-bin Jeong’s triple, and Kim Jae-hwan’s walk caused a crisis with one company on first and third base, and then follow-up hitter Yang Eui-ji turned into a double stroke to finish the inning with a scoreless run. The clean defense of second baseman An Chi-hong, shortstop No Jin-hyeok, and first baseman Han Dong-hee helped Na Kyun-ahn.

In the bottom of the second inning, Na Kyun-an walked lead batter Yang Seok-hwan, but struck out consecutive strikeouts from José Rojas and Kang Seung-ho, and then pitched Joon-yeong Park with a ground ball to continue the scoreless streak.

But the problem was in the bottom of the 3rd inning. Na Kyun-an gave up a walk after lead hitter Lee Yoo-chan’s third baseman grounder to follow-up hitter Sue-bin Su after a 9-pitch game, and scored the first run when he was hit by a 1-run double by Heo Gyeong-min at first base. In addition, Kim Jae-hwan allowed two run fours, and Na Kyun-an’s runs increased.

The crisis did not end here. Na Gyun-an, who sent Yang Seok-hwan out on a walk in the second out, was hit by a double by Rojas, and in the meantime, first base runner Yang Seok-hwan dug home. The score between the two teams, which had been 0-0 before the start of the inning, widened to 0-4.

At the end of the 4th inning, Na Kyun-an caught Park Joon-young, Lee Yoo-chan and Jeong Soo-bin in turn with a fly ball, strikeout, and straight hit, and took a breather with the first tripartite inning, but at the end of the 5th inning, lead batters Heo Gyeong-min and Kim Jae-hwan hit consecutively and were again in danger of being on first and second base safely. In the end, Na Gyun-an handed over the mound to Jin Seung-hyeon and finished his mound that day, and Yang Seok-hwan’s 2 RBIs at the 1st and 2nd bases with 1 company, and even the successor runners all went home.

Na Kyun-an failed to win four games in a row after winning his sixth win of the season against Daegu Samsung Lions on the 9th of last month. In his most recent appearance, against the Changwon NC Dinos on July 12, he suffered a loss with 9 hits (1 home run), 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and 2 runs in 4 innings. Na Gyun-an, who took a break for nearly two weeks, left unsatisfactory results in his first appearance in the second half.스포츠토토

With Lotte trailing 0-6 as of the 6th inning, if the game ends like this, Na Kyun-an will have his 4th loss of the season.
