“It feels good to pitch well in front of the home fans. It’s all thanks to your support with good energy.”
‘Jamsil Jesus’ Casey Kelly, who led the LG Twins to three consecutive victories, gave his thoughts.
Kelly started the home game against the Hanwha Eagles in the 2023 Professional Baseball KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 19th, pitched 99 balls in 7 innings, threw 6 hits, 1 home run, 4 strikeouts and 1 run, and LG won 3-1. led
Kelly, who has been wearing an LG uniform since the 2019 season, is a right-handed pitcher who posted an average ERA of 2.89 with 58 wins and 31 losses in 114 KBO league games (697 innings) until last year. Its strength is that it can use various fastballs such as four-seam and cutter, as well as curveballs, sliders, and changeups with large movements.
Kelly, who had been somewhat sluggish earlier this year, has recently rebounded perfectly. On the 13th, against the Samsung Lions in Daegu, he blocked 3 runs in 7 innings, leading LG to a 7-4 victory. His best speed was measured at 150 km.
After the game, Kelly said, “Today, I came out with a good strategy with (catcher) Park Dong-won, and I thought I would pitch aggressively from the beginning.” The fielders scored points in the early stages and showed a good performance in defense, so I was able to throw without any burden,” he said with a bright smile.
Kelly also had an unusual experience that day. Chae Eun-seong, who had been eating rice until last year, was allowed a solo arch after two deaths in the first inning.
Chae Eun-seong, who appeared in the first team in a LG uniform in 2014, is a right-handed outfielder. Until last year, he played in 1006 games for LG, posting a batting average of 0.297, 96 homers, and 595 RBIs. After the end of last season, he transferred to Hanwha through a free agent (FA).
Kelly, who allowed a home run in his first at-bat, did not repeat the same mistake. Afterwards, in the at-bat, Chae Eun-seong struck out all of them.카지노사이트
He said, “I felt strange when I was dealing with Chae Eun-seong. I felt strange because I had spent time on the same team for a long time and was loved by the fans,” he said.
Encouraged by Kelly’s counterattack, LG defeated Hanwha that day and won three consecutive victories, recording 25 wins and 14 losses. It was a more meaningful result because it was achieved in front of 19,798 fans who filled Jamsil.
“It feels good to pitch in front of the home fans today,” he said. I think it’s thanks to your support with good energy. I hope you will continue to support me.” He hoped for the support of many fans.
