Regarding the current situation of the professional baseball Lotte Giants, which is suffering from a serious slump of 3 wins and 12 losses in the last 15 games, head coach Larry Sutton cited sluggish batting as the main reason.
Head coach Sutton said ahead of the kt wiz match to be held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 22nd, “The first reason our team is struggling right now is the injured player. As a player who led In Lotte Baseball, he was good at getting on base and was very good at batting in each situation.”온라인바카라
It is difficult to explain the sluggish performance of Lotte with only Ahn Kwon-soo, who left early this month due to surgery to remove a bone fragment in his elbow.
Lotte, which was third in the league until the 1st of this month, suffered a sharp drop in performance due to various reasons, such as poor batting and bullpen hunting.
The winning rate, which was 0.614 (27-17) at the beginning of June, fell to 0.516 (32-30) with a loss against Suwon kt on the 21st.
Lotte’s team ERA this month is 5.34, the lowest in the league, and the team’s OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.662 is also the league’s last.
Coach Sutton pointed out, “Of course, the absence of one Ahn Kwon-soo does not mean that the team is in a downturn. The fact that the batting cycles of other players also fell at the same time is one of the reasons for the downturn in offense.”
He added, “All coaches are trying to find a solution. Especially the hitting and bullpen parts (which showed weakness) are making an effort. We are trying to regain a steady performance.”
Manager Sutton communicates by sending messages directly to the players.
He explained, “In order to continue to protect our team identity, we suggest what kind of effort must be made and how to go up again. We also try to talk personally with the players.”
What is especially emphasized is the content that “Let’s not look at yesterday or tomorrow, let’s concentrate on today’s victory right in front of us.”
Director Sutton raised his voice, saying, “We all have a heart to overcome hard, so we have to overcome the current crisis with teamwork.”
