[아이뉴스24 류한준 기자] We succeeded in reversing the atmosphere. Lotte Giants Charlie Barnes (pitcher) showed the pitch expected by his team after a long time.
Barnes started in an away match against the LG Twins at Jamsil Stadium on the 22nd. He pitched 92 pitches in 6 innings against LG and went on to score 2 hits and 7 strikeouts.
Lotte beat LG 7-1 with Barnes’ hot pitching and 12 long and short hits. It means that red pepper powder was properly sprinkled on SSG Landers, the No.
Barnes became the winning pitcher and posted his 12th win (12 losses) of the season. He won the game for the first time in almost a month since the NC Dinos match on the 24th of last month (August).
After the match, Barnes met with reporters who visited the scene and came out wearing a special T-shirt. Previously, he made a t-shirt with memories of friendship and memories with Glenn Sparkman (the pitcher) and collected topics.
Sparkman wore a Lotte uniform with Barnes this season, but his performance fell short of expectations. The Lotte club eventually re-signed Dan Straley, who served as the team’s ace for the 2020 and 2021 seasons instead of Sparkman.
This time, Barnes showed off a T-shirt with the faces of another teammate. Lee Dae-ho (infielder), who is ending his active career at the end of this season, is the second T-shirt protagonist of Barnes.
Dae-ho Lee finished his retirement tour schedule against the away team through the LG match on that day. “So it was a special game, and the team won, and I’m happy to be the winning pitcher,” Barnes said.
He said he knows the meaning of the Chinese characters and Korean characters on the T-shirt. “Lee Dae-ho is a player who has had a good career not only in the KBO league, but also in Japanese professional baseball and major leagues. Throwing out as a starting pitcher on the day of his retirement tour is also meaningful to me. big,” he said.
The remaining retirement tour for Lee Dae-ho is Lotte’s last game of the season and the last home game of the season, the LG match to be held at Sajik Stadium on October 8th. Barnes could go up the mound in one or two of Lotte’s eight remaining games in the starting rotation.
Barnes emphasized, “Going up the mound that day (October 8) is not my will, but if possible, I would definitely like to start again.”
A teammate who took off his uniform after leaving the KBO League and a former major leaguer (Lee Dae-ho signed a contract with the Seattle Mariners in 2016 and played for one season, batting .25 pennies, 14 homers, and 49 RBIs. After this season, he returned to Lotte. ) is respect and courtesy. Meanwhile, Lee Dae-ho hit 2 hits against LG on that day (22nd) and contributed to Lotte Victory and Barnes’ 12 wins./Jamsil = Reporter Han-Jun Ryu ([email protected])
