’Four days off’ Wilkerson-Barnes tandem to be Lotte’s ’savior’

Wilkerson, Barnes on 4-day rest rotation from last week Wilkerson lived up to expectations with 6 scoreless innings, 

Barnes with 7 scoreless innings Last week, the Lotte Giants’ foreign starters took the mound on four days’ rest, and they lived up to expectations, 토토 with Aaron Wilkerson and Charlie Barnes combining for a dominant performance.

 LOTTE manager Larry Sutton has made a strong case for a postseason berth. Last week, Sutton said, "We have to keep moving forward toward the postseason. That’s why I decided to start Barnes and Wilkerson on four days’ rest," Sutton said. 

 Barnes, who will pitch in the four-day rotation for the remainder of the season, said, "I like it. I’m just happy to get on the mound and throw the ball. When the manager told me, I said it was no problem at all," he said, showing the responsibility of an ace. 

 This season, Lotte is in seventh place with a season record of 47 wins and 51 losses. They have three games in hand over the fifth-place Doosan Bears (49 wins, 1 tie, 47 losses), who are in the fall baseball playoffs. 

 With so much ground to make up, the Brewers decided to send the one-two punch of Wilkerson and Barnes to the mound on four days’ rest. Wilkerson, who came in as a replacement for Dan Straily, 안전놀이터 has pitched 24 innings in four games, going 2-0 with a 1.88 ERA. Barnes, who resurfaced in the second half of the season, is cruising with a 9-6 record, 99 strikeouts and a 3.63 ERA in 21 games. 

 Lotte got off to a good start in a three-game series at home last weekend.

 Wilkerson pitched six innings of six-hit ball, striking out five and walking none to lead the team to a 7-1 win over the KIA Tigers on April 11. He took the mound on four days’ rest for the second game in a row, but looked sharp, extending his scoreless streak to 14 innings. 

 Barnes also showed off his ace form. He threw seven innings of three-hit ball, two walks, five strikeouts and one unearned run against KIA on April 13. Lotte took a 6-1 victory and swept the series behind Barnes’ performance.

 Wilkerson and Barnes are a huge part of the team’s strength. It’s not an exaggeration to say that their postseason run depends on their performance. 스포츠토토 It will be interesting to see if Wilkerson and Barnes can be the saviors that lead the team to fall baseball for the first time in six years.
