The LG Twins are said to be less than usual this season. Some fans say “replacement.”
However, the LG club does not say a 메이저사이트 word about Kelly’s replacement. LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop also said, “I’m going to the end” of Kelly’s replacement. Because I believe in Kelly. I believe in his sincerity, dedication to the team, and record.
Kelly has an image of throwing better in the second half than in the first half. Since 2019, when he first came to Korea, he has consistently shown good performance in the second half.
In 2019, the first year, he recorded 9 wins and 9 losses and a 2.77 ERA in the first half, with 5 wins and 3 losses and a 2.05 ERA in the second half.
In 2020, it was sluggish in the early stages due to COVID-19. In the first half, he had four wins and six losses, a 4.38 ERA, and a high ERA. However, in the second half, he accumulated a huge number of wins with 11 wins and 1 loss. A stable 2.22 ERA was the basis for the victory.
In 2021, the performance in the first and second half was also significantly different. In the first half, he recorded 5 wins, 4 losses, and a 3.56 ERA, but in the second half, he recorded 8 wins, 4 losses, and a 2.77 ERA.
It was different only last year. Everyone had a surprising winning streak in the first half. He showed a change with 12 wins and 1 loss and a 2.28 ERA. On the contrary, it slowed down to 4 wins and 3 losses in the second half. The ERA also rose to 2.93, but remained in the two-point range.
Looking at his career performance for four years from 2019 to last year, he was clearly good in the second half with 30 wins, 20 losses, 3.18 ERA in the first half, and 28 wins, 11 losses, and 2.51 ERA in the second half.
Kelly, who still has his last appearance in the first half of the first half of the match against the Hanwha Eagles in Jamsil on the 12th, has 6 wins, 4 losses, and a 4.57 ERA as of the 11th. It was the worst ERA in the first half of the past four years, but it was not bad luck with six wins. If he shows a two-point ERA that has not changed for four years in the second half of this year, he can play as the team’s ace with enough wins along with LG’s powerful batters.
Even when her son was born in the U.S. in 2021, Kelly did not go to the U.S. to win the regular league and played the starting rotation. In the playoffs against Kiwoom last year, he started again in Game 4 after three days off after taking the mound in Game 1. He was so devoted to LG that it was his first time to take a three-day break and start in his baseball career.
If Kelly shows the appearance of “Kelly in the second half,” he can take a step closer to LG’s advance to the Korean Series and win, which he always shouted.
