It’s the second time in history to try 20 holds for four years in a row

Koo Seung-min, who wrote Lotte’s first 100 hold history, has another milestone left…It’s the second time in history to try 20 holds for four years in a row

KBO said on the 18th, “Koo Seung-min, the pillar of Lotte’s bullpen, is on the verge of a 20-hold record for the second consecutive four seasons in KBO league history,” adding, “If Koo Seung-min, who has 19 holds as of the 17th, he will be the second player to achieve this record after Ahn Ji-man in the 2012-2015 season.”

Koo Seung-min wore the Lotte uniform as the 52nd overall pick in the 6th round of the 2013 KBO Rookie Draft. After completing his military service in Sangmu, he took the mound as the main bullpen from the 2018 season. Starting with 14 holds in the 2018 season, he recorded 6 holds in the 2019 season. 토토사이트넷

He then raised 20 holds for three consecutive years from the 2020 season. He recorded 20 holds in each of the 2020 and 2021 seasons, and finished the season with 26 holds last season. 26 holds is the most hold in a single season recorded by Lotte.

Koo Seung-min pitched in 53 games this season, recording 2 wins, 4 losses, 19 holds, 3 saves, 49⅔ innings, 21 runs (18 earned runs) and a 3.26 ERA. In the game against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil on the 26th of last month, he achieved 100 holds in his career. He is the first player to record 100 holds for Lotte.

At the time, Koo Seung-min said, “The more I think about the record of holding, the further I get. When you feel burdened, you feel guilty or sorry for not keeping the lead. ”It’s important to forget quickly,” he said. “If I don’t get sick like now and endure such a situation, I think the day will come when I will naturally set a 20-hold record.”

“Koo Seung-min, who achieved 100 holds for the first time in Lotte’s history on July 26, is looking at another milestone of 20 holds for four consecutive seasons,” KBO said. “If he succeeds in achieving 20 holds this season and continues to play next season, he can challenge 20 holds for the first time in the KBO league.”

Meanwhile, Lotte will play its first game of three consecutive weekends against the Kiwoom Heroes at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 18th. The starting pitcher for Lotte is Charlie Barnes. Kiwoom starts Ian McKinney. Attention is focusing on whether Koo Seung-min will be able to set a 20-hold record for four consecutive years in three consecutive games against Kiwoom.
