The second El Rashico, the first one favours Lotte Why?
The Jamsil Bee is heating up.
The second El Lotto this season (LG-Lotte) will be held for three days from today (30th).
This time, the matchup is attracting more attention. It’s a battle between first-place LG and third-place Lotte. Both teams have two games in hand. Depending on the outcome of the three-game series, the standings could change.
Lotte has a slight advantage in the first game. They have the advantage in the selection card.
Lotte will start Han Hyun-hee. He has been a strong performer for LG Electronics throughout his career.
In 53 games, he has a 9-6 record with 10 saves and a 3.71 ERA. It can be said that LG Electronics can be confident in their performance.스포츠토토
This season, he gave up five runs on four hits (one home run), five walks, and three strikeouts in a game on 13 April, but was able to get the win with the help of his bats.
There is a good feeling in the air for LG.
LG’s starter is Lee Min-ho. He will be making his comeback from injury. We can expect him to go a maximum of five innings.
His career record against Lotte is not very good.
In four appearances, he has a 1-1 record with a 7.53 ERA. That’s not exactly confidence inspiring numbers.
He’s faced a whopping 25 hits in 14.1 innings. It’s clear that he was never strong against Lotte batters.
For now, the record is in Lotte’s favour in the first game.
The two teams have similar offences. Their batting averages in scoring position are 0.302 (LG) and 0.293 (Lotte).
LG is clearly the stronger team overall, but Lotte is not far behind in terms of their ability to create and solve chances.
The bullpens are equally strong.
LG has Ham Deok-ju, Yoo Young-chan, and Park Myung-geun filling the void left by Lee Jung-yong.
Lotte has a solid bullpen with Kim Jin-wook, Kim Sang-soo, Koo Seung-min and Kim Won-joong. They had a day of rest yesterday, so there shouldn’t be too much of a problem physically.
If the strength of the bullpen is equal to the strength of the batting lineup, it could be the difference between winning and losing the starting battle.
As mentioned above, Lotte has the edge in the starting battle. They have the numbers to take the lead in the all-important first game.
Will Han Hyun-hee and Lee Min-ho be able to throw the ball the way they’ve shown so far for both teams? If the numbers don’t lie, the first game is in Lotte’s favour.
