The Samsung Lions met again around the same time. Can we achieve different results this season?
In April of last year, the Lotte Giants took the mound on the mound in 5 games and recorded an average ERA of 1.76 with 3 wins and 1.76 ERA in 5 games, aiming for the Asian Games team with ‘Ace’ Charlie Barnes, who left a tremendous record of 4 wins and an undefeated ERA of 0.65. Park Se-woong, and Han Dong-hee, who wielded a fire bat with 7 home runs, 22 RBIs and a batting average of 0.427 OPS 1.249 in 24 games in 24 games, 14 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses with a win rate of 0.609, finished April in second place.
However, Lotte’s ‘gust’ in April did not lead to May. Lotte won the last game of 3 consecutive matches against the LG Twins, the first game in May, but suffered a 1 win 2 loss ‘Losing Series’ against KT Wiz, who had the first 3 consecutive matches, and the good flow was broken. And the opponent to face off against was the Samsung Lions, who finished April in a not-so-good atmosphere with 10-15 losses and 8th place. The results of this three-game series were fatal.
On May 6th, Lotte lost 0-5 against the Samsung Lions, recording their second consecutive loss, and the next day, they knelt 1-4, confirming the losing series. And in the last game of the 3-game series, it collapsed 2-4 and suffered a ‘sweep loss’, and fell into a quagmire of 4 consecutive losses. Lotte, which had finished second or higher for the first time in 10 years since 2012, started to plummet after leaving a shocking result in three consecutive matches with Samsung.
Of course, the combination of various bad news, such as the appearance of new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) confirmed and injured one after another, was one of the reasons for the fall, but Lotte’s May recorded 9 wins and 17 losses, tied with the NC Dinos for the lowest place. In the end, Lotte did not rebound until the end of the season, and finished the season in 8th place with a win rate of 0.457, 64 wins, 4 draws and 76 losses. 먹튀검증
Lotte this year is in a very similar situation to last year. Lotte finished April this year with 14 wins and 8 losses, taking first place alone, which was 3949 days since July 7, 2012. In addition, Lotte started with the KIA Tigers on the 20th of last month and ran 8 consecutive victories until the Kiwoom Heroes on the 30th. This trend continued until the first game in May, and Lotte ran for 9 consecutive wins in 5358 days since the Sajik Samsung Lions match on August 30, 2008.
