Lotte lost 2-8 in the 11th game of the season against KT in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 21st. Following a 2-5 come-from-behind defeat the previous day, Lotte lost by allowing KT to reverse even after taking the first point in the game today.
Lotte suffered a slump in the game that day, starting pitcher Na Kyun-an scored the most runs this season with 6 runs in 5 innings. Along with this, the Lotte batting line failed to properly target KT starting pitcher Ko Young-pyo and gave up the victory. Koh Young-pyo proved once again that he is a ‘natural enemy’ by winning 3 out of 6 wins this season against Lotte. Lotte had the misfortune of going down the mound complaining of elbow pain in its right arm, Na Kyun-ahn, who had served as the practical first starting pitcher this season.

With Kim Min-seok also striking out, Lotte faced a situation with two companies and second base. Kang-Nam Yoo hit a fastball from Young-Pyo Ko and scored an RBI in a timely manner.

Kyun-an Na felt discomfort in his right elbow, and will undergo a detailed examination at a later date.

Ko Young-pyo recorded 4 hits with 1 run in 7 innings, the same as the match against Lotte held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 6th.

In Lotte, Rex and Park Seung-wook scored consecutive hits against KT’s third pitcher Lee Seon-woo, who climbed the mound in the ninth inning, creating opportunities for two companies to score on first and second base.

Following the game on the 20th, Lotte showed helplessness in the attack in the game on this day, and fell into a losing streak again.
