Lotte Giants foreign pitcher Charlie Barnes (28) had his worst outing in his KBO debut.온라인카지노
Barnes took the mound against the NC Dinos of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Changwon NC Park on the 13th and struggled, giving up six runs on four hits and four walks (two walks and two batted balls) in 1⅓ innings.
In a crucial showdown with Lotte’s five-game winning percentage and the fourth spot in the team standings on the line, Barnes failed to live up to expectations. After giving up an infield single to NC’s leadoff hitter Son Asub in the top of the first inning, Barnes walked Seo Ho-cheol and then gave up a straight ball to Martin. With runners on first and second, Barnes gave up back-to-back singles to Kwon Hee-dong to load the bases.
A shaken Barnes eventually gave up a three-run double to Yoon Hyung-jun. After striking out the next batter to give himself some breathing room, Barnes walked Kim Joo-won on a pitch to the body but got Ahn Jung-yeol to ground out to the pitcher to end the first inning.
Barnes couldn’t settle down in the second inning. He walked leadoff hitter Do Tae-hoon on a six-pitch full count. He then gave up a single to Son to put runners on first and second and got Seo Ho-cheol to fly out to centre field for the first out, but he couldn’t get it over the line. A three-pitch fastball to Martin, the No. 3 hitter, was high and away and he gave up a three-run homer. The Lotte bench couldn’t take it anymore. Barnes was pulled after two innings and Han Hyun-hee took over the bullpen.
Barnes, who is in his second season in the KBO, pitched the shortest inning of his career. Barnes, whose previous shortest inning was 2⅓ innings (four runs) against the LG Twins on 24 June, suffered the humiliation of not completing two innings for the first time in his KBO debut.
Lotte, meanwhile, allowed another two-run homer by Han Hyun-hee to Do Tae-hoon in the bottom of the third inning and are now 0-8 in the NC.
