In the bottom of the first inning, Park Se-woong, who struck out both Kim Jun-wan and Kim Hye-seong, was hit by Ronnie Dawson, but Song Seong-moon was grounded by second baseman. The second episode was neatly blocked with a tripartite offense.
Park Se-woong started in the Kiwoom Heroes O game of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 20th and recorded 4 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 9 strikeouts and 3 runs (1 earned) in 6 innings.
Park Se-woong, who sent lead batter Lim Byeong-wook to second base with a walk and wild throw in the third inning, with Lotte leading 3-0, was hit by Kim Si-ang and was driven to the 1st and 3rd bases safely. In the end, he allowed Kiwoom to pursue by giving Kim Jun-wan an RBI in a timely manner. However, he did not allow additional runs by overpowering the central batting line leading to Kim Hye-seong-Dawson-Song Seong-moon.
Park Se-woong, who sent out lead hitter Kim Hui-jip for an error at second base in the fourth inning, caught Lee Ju-hyeong with a grounder at first base and struck out Jeon Byung-woo, quickly posting two outcounts. However, he threw a 123 km/h curve on the second pitch to Lim Byung-wook and allowed a two-run home run that went over the right fence.
Park Se-woong, who was hit by an unexpected blow, recorded 7 consecutive hits until the 6th inning. In the 7th inning, when Lotte led 4-3, he was replaced by Kim Sang-soo and finished the mound that day. Kim Sang-soo allowed Kim Joon-wan to score a sacrifice fly and Kim Hye-seong to come from behind with 1 RBI and double, giving Park Se-woong victory. Lotte suffered a 6-7 come-from-behind defeat and suffered a series sweep loss. Following a 4-5 come-from-behind loss on the 18th and a 2-5 come-from-behind loss on the 19th, all of them were reversed until today.
Park Se-woong, who recorded 107 pitches, used fastball (37 pitches) – curve (25 pitches) – slider (19 pitches) – slub (14 pitches) – fork (12 pitches). He had a fastball speed of 149 km and a slider speed of 141 km. The curve also showed power and caught 4 strikeouts.
Coach Larry Sutton said in an interview before the game, “Park Se-woong has recently undergone adjustments. He will see a better look. I have no doubt that he will play a good game today. Park Se-woong is a pitcher who throws a good ball, but the key is how consistently he takes that performance.”
Park Se-woong delivered a powerful pitch as Sutton expected. However, as the fielders’ mistakes and the bullpen’s sluggishness overlapped, they eventually accepted the bitter result of a come-from-behind loss in three consecutive games.
