‘I’m not a pervert’ Taking 2 hits a day and turning it into a laugh… 5 innings of 8K without allowing a run.

A starter who was hit by a batter twice in one day pitched 5 innings, 99 pitches, 8 strikeouts and no runs. This is the performance of Lee Yi-ri, the successor to KIA’s “big pitcher” Yang Hyun-jong, on the 8th.

On the afternoon of the 8th, during the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ game between the KT Wiz and the KIA Tigers at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, KIA starter Lee Yi-ri was hit in the leg by Jang Jang-woo in the first inning and Kim Min-hyuk in the fifth.

Without so much as a grimace, Lee brushed it off and resumed pitching, just like his nickname, “Baseball’s Bodhisattva” or “Pureblood.안전놀이터

But it didn’t matter, as the camera captured his expression as he was hit, and the pain was indescribable.

In the fifth inning, Lee pushed through the pain to get to the first base cover to fulfill the pitcher’s defensive duties after Kim Min-hyuk’s hit to his left leg.

As his fellow KIA players, pitching coach Seo Jae-heng, and KT’s Kim Min-hyuk, who hit the ball, worried, Lee simply smiled.

In the fifth inning, with runners on second and first, Lee was faced with a straight ball to the plate and a wild pitch after two strikes to Hwang Jae-gyun, putting runners on second and third. Lee chose the 99th pitch, a curveball, to strike out Hwang Jae-gyun, ending his five-inning no-hitter.

Lee earned the unflattering nickname of “The Man-Ru Pervert” due to his pitching anxiety this season.

After being hit twice in one day, Lee fulfilled his starting duties by pitching five innings with a smile on his face, leaving his opponents shaking their heads and calling him an unstoppable ‘monster pervert’.
