Na Kyun-an was like the ‘core’ of Lotte’s mound this season. Na Kyun-an, who competed in the spring camp and took the 5th starting position, recorded 4 wins in 5 appearances in April and recorded an average ERA of 1.34. did a great job.
He wasn’t lucky enough to win, but he pitched great. Na Kyun-ahn recorded an average ERA of 3.62 in five appearances in May. And in the first appearance in June, he gave up 3 runs in 6 innings (3 earned), and in the second appearance, he gave up 1 run in 7 innings (1 earned), and played an active role worthy of the title of “ace”.
However, Kyun-an Na was sluggish in the previous appearance. Na Kyun-an suffered sluggish performance against the Hanwha Eagles with 8 hits (2 homers), 4 walks, 2 strikeouts and 3 runs (3 earned) in 4 innings. But his sluggishness was not the problem. The fact that Na Kyun-an was in danger of being seriously injured.
Na Gyun-an cruised without any crisis in the first or second rounds of the day, blocking the KT line. However, in the 3rd inning, first baseman Ko Seung-min’s unsatisfactory defense came out, and Anthony Alford and Park Byung-ho were hit in a row and allowed a turnaround. Na Kyun-an finished the fourth inning scoreless, but gave up another run in the fifth inning, and in the sixth inning, after giving up a walk to Park Kyung-soo, Hwang Jae-gyun hit a RBI triple, and Bae Jung-dae hit a timely hit and scored 5 runs before being demolished.
However, a problem arose during the steel plate process. Na Gyun-an, who was caught on the broadcast screen, complained of his discomfort while holding his elbow and frowning. In a situation where the number of pitches was high and the replacement timing was appropriate, it seemed somewhat problematic that Na Kyun-an grabbed his elbow. And the fear became a reality. An official from Lotte said, “Na Kyun-an felt uncomfortable when she rotated her right elbow externally.”
Lotte is struggling with 3 wins and 10 losses in the last 13 games until the game on the 21st. To make matters worse, even ‘Ace’ was placed in the possibility of breaking away from the battle line.
