Eui-ri Lee of the KIA Tigers could not cross the wall of the ninth round. 

Eui-Ri Lee made her second start of the season in the match against the Doosan Bears held at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 8th, but after throwing well, she suddenly fell into trouble and gave up during the 4th inning. The result was 2 hits, 5 walks and 2 runs in 3 innings. 

The beginning was overwhelming. In the top of the first inning, 안전놀이터Lee Yu-chan and Kang Seung-ho struck out and lightly blocked the inning. In the second inning, Kim Jae-hwan also struck out, and Yang Eui-ji scored a straight hit from shortstop. Yang Seok-hwan, who was in the middle of the hit, hit a double next to the left fielder, but Song Seung-hwan struck out again. 

In the third inning, Jang Seung-yeon, the first batter, was induced to ground the shortstop, and the pitch suddenly faltered. Su-bin Su, Yu-chan Lee, and Gyeong-min Heo were all sent out as walks. With a powerful pitch, Kang Seung-ho caught a ground ball from third base and Kim Jae-hwan struck out and overcame the crisis. 

However, the 4th inning did not return. Yang Eui-ji and Yang Seok-hwan were allowed to walk, and Song Seung-hwan was unfavorable for the ball count.

In the end, pitching coach Jung Myeong-won came out of the dugout and gave the steel judge’s sign. Lim Ki-young, who followed, scored two runs with a timely hit. Fortunately, the reverse crisis was prevented and defeat was avoided.

Out of 77 pitches, only 38 were strikes. The strike rate did not reach 50%. While throwing a powerful 150km fastball, changeup, and slider, the balance and release point suddenly fluctuated, and he fell into hunting. 

On the 2nd, in the first game other than SSG Landers, he played 5 innings, getting only 3 hits, but allowed 6 walks. If he can’t handle the innings properly due to pitch hunting, the load on the mound will inevitably increase. Eui-ri Lee’s early season is difficult.
