3 wins last year ERA 2.74 → 1 win 2 losses ERA 6.46 this year. I never thought that the king of many wins would be the number one anxiety factor 

 The LG Twins, who were evaluated as the number one candidate for the championship, finally became the sole first place.

On the 19th, LG won 9-4 in a home game against NC Dinos, tied for first place, held in Jamsil. LG, which reached 11 wins and 6 losses, pushed SSG Landers (9 wins and 6 losses) and NC (10 wins and 7 losses) to 2nd and 3rd places and became the sole first place.

The power of the powerful blow was great. Team batting average .299 171 hits, 106 runs scored, 102 RBIs. He ranks first in major hitting categories, including 33 stolen bases. Due to the injuries of Lee Min-ho and Go Woo-seok, the overall mound was not stable, but the batting supported the difficulties of the mound and was able to rise to first place.

But there is a worrying aspect. Ace Casey Kelly’s early sluggishness. Kelly is sluggish with 1 win and 2 losses in 4 games this season and an average ERA of 6.46. He grows worried about not being able to overcome the crisis and giving points all at once.

Kelly is remembered as a slow starter. The second half was much better than the first half. But over the past four years, the start of the season has not been bad.

Kelly, who recorded 3 wins and 1 loss and an average ERA of 2.96 in the first 4 games in 2019, his first year in Korea, raised 2 wins and an average ERA of 4.05 in 2020, which opened in May with Corona 19. In 2021, it was 1 win in 4 games and an average ERA of 2.05, and last year, 3 wins and losses, an average ERA of 2.74 showed a good start, and eventually, with 16 wins, he became the first winner of his debut. This year could be the worst start.

On the 19th, the 4th appearance of the season, he was in danger of losing with 9 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts and 5 runs in 6 innings against the NC Dinos.

Kelly cooks batters with sliders, changeups, curves, etc. based on fastballs and two-seams in the late 140km range. He has good breaking pitches, and he avoids attacks by hitters in the KBO league by changing the ratio of pitches every year. However, it is clear that this season is not the Kelly I have been seeing for four years.먹튀검증

LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop explained the cause of Kelly’s sluggishness, saying, “There is no problem with ball mixing, but there are many misspellings.”

Will Kelly be able to show the face of a multi-winner in his next appearance? In order to continue running for first place, the role of Kelly, the first starter to meet the opponent’s ace, is very important, so I have no choice but to worry deeply.
