Park Se-woong started the 10th game between the teams in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the LG Twins at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 8th and gave up six runs on six hits, one walk, two homers, and two strikeouts in 5⅔ innings.
It was a shaky start. In the top of the first inning, he walked Moon Sung-ju and got Kim Hyun-soo to ground out to second, but promptly gave up a two-run homer to give Austin the lead.
He held the LG offense scoreless in the top of the second, but couldn’t get past Austin again in the top of the third, when the teams were tied 2-2. Park then seemed to settle down after retiring the LG bats in order in the fourth and fifth innings. Lotte tied the game in the bottom of the fourth when Yoo Kang-nam hit a tying solo home run. Things were looking good until Park Se-woong got Austin, the “difficult enemy” who led off the sixth inning, to ground out to shortstop.
However, a walk to Oh Ji-hwan, a single to Park Dong-won, and a single to Moon Bo-kyung put runners on first and second with two outs.
Park Se-woong induced Park Hae-min to ground out to shortstop to extend the count to one out, but he was unable to capitalize. The Lotte bench then replaced the pitcher with Kim Jin-wook, and Park left the mound in frustration. Kim gave up a two-run single to Shin Min-jae, increasing Park’s lead to six runs.
Park had been in great form, pitching eight consecutive quality starts, starting on May 19 against the SSG Landers (six innings, one run win) and ending on May 30 against the Doosan Bears (seven innings, no run win).After eight days of rest, Park was looking for his fifth win of the season and the team’s winning streak, but the result was the worst possible. He gave up a two-run homer and an RBI single to Austin, who had been 3-for-9 against him prior to this game.
In the top of the sixth inning, he struggled with his pitches and suffered his third loss of the season. Lotte also gave up six runs to LG in the top of the seventh inning as Kim Jin-wook and Jeong Sung-jong, who took over for Park Se-woong, were hit by pitches, and the game was decided from there.
Lotte falls to 3-12, dropping to 37 wins on the season and teetering on the brink of a five-win season. The NC Dinos remained tied for fourth place as they were swept by the bottom-ranked Samsung Lions, but their chances of maintaining a top-five finish were red-lighted at the end of the first half.
