“Team No Hit No Run = Autumn Baseball”…What is Lotte’s third destiny?

Lotte escaped three consecutive losses with the third “team no-hit, no-run” in professional baseball history.

On the 6th, in the match against Sajik hometown SSG, starting pitcher Wilkerson, who was recruited as a substitute foreign player in the second half, had a good fight with 7 innings, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts – 8th inning setup man Seung-Min 메이저놀이터 Koo’s tripartite – finisher Kim Won-joong’s 19th save of the season continued, 1-0 The victory was confirmed by one point.

On this day, SSG also pitched scoreless, with starting pitcher McCarty giving up only three hits and one walk in seven innings. However, the tight balance was broken when Moon Seung-won, who took the mound at the bottom of the 8th inning when the score was tied 0-0, gave a timely hit to Yoon Dong-hee with the first runner on second base.

After getting two outs in the top of the ninth, Kim Won-joong gave up a walk to SSG hitter Choo Shin-soo and sent the runner to second base with a wild throw, but caught second batter Choi Ji-hoon with a ground ball to first base and put an end to the team’s no-hit no-run. Choo Shin-soo broke Wilkerson’s perfect streak by getting a walk in the 7th inning as well.

Coach Sutton Lotte said, “In fact, as a manager, I wanted to keep the ball in (Wilkerson’s) hand because the individual no-hitter game continued, but it was the second appearance this week and I threw almost 100 (with 95 pitches), so there is still a lot left to do. I had to consider the season,” he explained the background of the replacement.

So far, a pitcher has achieved a no-hitter and no-run a total of 14 times in professional baseball, but there have been only two no-hit and no-run teams in which several pitchers collaborated.

The first record was recorded by LG in 2014 (Jamsil NC match on October 6). At that time, starting pitcher Shin Jeong-rak (now Lotte) caught 9 strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings, Yu Won-sang (current women’s baseball team coach) 1 1/3 innings, and Shin Jae-woong (current LG Remaining Team pitching coach) He threw 1/3 of an inning. At that time, LG won a 1-0 finish victory.

The second and most recent record was SSG, which gave Lotte a record that day. SSG, who started in the opening game last year, made perfect pitching against Changwon NC, striking out 9 while throwing 104 pitches until the 9th inning, giving up no hits or walks. However, as both teams failed to score 0-0 until the regular innings, they had to be satisfied with the unofficial ‘9 innings perfect’. Even at that time, the victory went to the team that achieved a team no-hit-no-run. The SSG lineup scored 4 runs in the top of the 10th inning, and on the mound, Kim Taek-hyung blocked the bottom of the 10th inning without a hit or run.

An interesting fact is that the two teams that achieved the team no-hitter earlier advanced to fall baseball that year. Lotte created a sensation by winning 9 consecutive victories in 15 years until May 2 of this season, rising to the top spot for the first time in 11 years since 2012. However, the first place was last on May 19th, and on July 13th, it came down to 5th place, and now it is only 7th place (44-49), 4.5 games away from 5th place Doosan (47-44).
