Eui-ri Lee started the match against KT Wiz in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 8th and recorded a victory with 3 hits, 2 walks and 8 strikeouts in 5 innings. 

Eui-ri Lee, who recorded an average ERA of 3.82 with 7 wins and 5 losses in 16 games (73 innings) this season, was deleted from the first team entry for rest on the 28th of last month. Lee Eui-ri, who returned after skipping a start, overpowered the KT lineup with sharp breaking balls such as a fastball with a maximum speed of 151 km/h, a slider, a changeup, and a curveball. 

Lee Eui-ri, who said in an interview after the game, “I came with an empty mind and tried to throw it,” said, “It seems that the fastball did not go well today. I tried to mix and throw the breaking ball well, but it worked.” 

Lee Eui-ri, who said he focused on balancing his pitching during the break, said, “I tried to catch the body turning too much when I threw the ball. When he throws, he has to move forward and use force, but he has a problem with turning too much to the side. I think I threw it quite satisfactorily today.” 

KIA has been on a four-game winning streak since acquiring Kim Tae-gun through a trade on the 5th. Coach Kim Jong-guk said in an interview before the game, “Kim Tae-gun is a big help. He emphasized the effect of recruiting Kim Tae-gun, saying, “I think pitchers have more faith because he is a catcher with a lot of experience.” 

Lee Eui-ri, who worked with Kim Tae-gun for the first time on this day, said, “Today (Kim) Tae-gun got rid of a lot of miscellaneous thoughts, so I think good results came out. If his body continues to turn, the power of sliders or curveballs will decrease. And the direct ball can’t live in the end. He advised that it would be better to exaggerate and throw with the feeling of shooting from the top down. He talked a lot during the game and made me feel comfortable. He trusted and followed the ball,” he said, sending his trust to Kim Tae-goon. 

Fans have high expectations of how far KIA, which has been on the rise with the recruitment of Kim Tae-gun, can go up.
