“Barnes pitched a great game. It’s nice to end the week with a winning series.”

It’s a winning series they’ve been craving. Could this be the turning point in the Lotte Giants’ August comeback?

토토사이트 The Lotte Giants won the third game of their weekend series against the KIA Tigers 6-1 at Busan’s Sajik Stadium on the 13th, completing their second consecutive winning series following a three-game sweep of the Kiwoom Heroes in midweek.

Starter Barnes pitched seven innings of one-run ball for a Quality Start Plus (QS+) (seven or more innings pitched with three or fewer earned runs), while struggling Noh Jin-hyuk sang a song of resurrection with a two-hit, three-RBI performance. Joon-woo Jeon continued his strong play, and Lee Jung-geun continued his sharp hitting. The Koo-Seung-min-Kim Won-joong back door was literally an iron wall.

Lotte Giants manager Larry Sutton said, “Barnes pitched a no-hitter until the middle innings. He dominated the game with his QS+ pitching and excellent control.”

“After two days off, Koo Seung-min and Kim Won-joong finished the game with powerful pitches to win the game,” he said. “On offence, we put pressure on the opposing pitcher in the early innings and scored a lot of runs, and when we needed to, we added more runs in the late innings.”

“I’m happy to end the week with a winning series, and we’ll continue the good trend next week,” Sutton said, expressing hope for autumn baseball.
