The ace responsible for all 2 wins of the season for the Lotte Giants. ‘Mr. Zero’ with an ERA of 0 in 13⅔innings.
The command tower and the ‘8 billion catcher’ also acknowledged it. This year’s Na Kyun-an is different from last year. It has been reborn as the ‘Pride of Busan’.
Yoo Kang-nam, whom I met on the 11th스포츠토토, commented on Na Kyun-an’s 7 scoreless innings against the KT Wiz two days ago, “I threw it exactly as I planned. I boldly did well as I signed.”
Na Gyun-an commented, ‘Yoo Kang-nam’s reaction was so good’. Regarding this, Yoo Kang-nam laughed, saying, “The pitcher threw a good ball, so it came out without me knowing. Thank you.”
He went from being an enemy to being a teammate. Is there a difference between the enemy Yoo Kang-nam saw and Na Kyun-an as a colleague? Yoo Kang-nam asserted that it was “completely different.”
“When I saw him at camp, his command was really good. He is a pitcher who has the ability to throw elaborately and well on the course he wants. It seems that the demonstration game was a step up because he went through a lot of hard training. “
This day’s match is the first regular league match between Yoo Kang-nam and his former team, LG. Kangnam Yoo laughed, saying, “I think it’s the same day, the same game.”
In particular, Kangnam Yoo’s greeting with Kelly was a sight to behold. Yoo Kang-nam said, “I often contact Kelly, Oh Ji-hwan, and Chae Eun-seong. In particular, (Oh) Ji-hwan hyung called me at 7:00 a.m. the day before the opening night. A minute after I hung up, I got a call from (Chae) Eun-seong hyung,” and added, “I hope Ji-hwan hyung recovers well from his injury. Let’s meet again after we’re completely healed.”
There is a proverb in the baseball world that if you know someone well, the hitter has an advantage. This is why each team is wary of the transfer of the main catcher. Yoo Kang-nam emphasized, “As a catcher, there are so many good pitchers in LG. There is a sense of pressure.”
“The grades are not good, but the feeling of hitting is not bad. As long as I follow the routine every day, I think my cycle will gradually rise. Now there is only one thing left to do to get better.”
Coach Larry Sutton also said of Na Kyun-an, “As you can see, his control was really good. He struck out eight and threw efficiently. When necessary, he struck out with a forkball.” Just like you did.” He smiled brightly.
