‘0-3 5-3 5-5’ The big reversal of the batting line was of no use… Tanner lost his sense of stability, allowing 5 runs in 4 innings

Tanner, who was in charge of starting the NC Dinos’ return to fall baseball for the first time in three years, was unable to protect the team’s lead and was kicked out early.토토사이트

Tanner started the game against the Doosan Bears in the first game of the postseason wild card game of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Changwon NC Park on the 19th and was dismissed after allowing 5 runs on 86 pitches and 7 hits (1 home run) in 4 innings. .

He used 33 fastballs, 34 sliders, 15 change-ups, and 4 curves with a maximum speed of 145 km, but was unable to withstand the concentration of the Doosan batting lineup.

Tanner, who joined as a foreign player to replace Taylor Widener, had a smooth landing on the Korean stage. He recorded 5 wins, 2 losses in 11 games, an ERA of 2.92 (21 earned runs in 64⅔ innings), 47 strikeouts, 13 walks, WHIP of 1.10, and 8 quality starts.

NC’s second half could have been difficult without Peddie’s foreign partner in the starting lineup, which did not have a native ace. But Tanner lived up to expectations. Although Widener was excellent at pitching, his anxiety was amplified by the monotonous pattern and undulating pitch content. On the other hand, Tanner did not have an overwhelming pitch, but he showed off his control by throwing a sweeper like Pedi. There were only 1.81 walks per 9 innings. He exquisitely stole batters’ timing by throwing a relatively fast ball with a slow arm swing. Pitching that took away timing was the reason for Tanner’s soft landing. 

Tanner appeared once against Doosan this year on August 20th. He pitched relatively well, allowing 7 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts, and 3 runs (1 earned run) in 6 innings. Doosan may have done a lot of analysis through video, but since he is a relatively unfamiliar pitcher, pitching that steals Tanner’s timing can be effective. However, Tanner’s lack of power was a concern. An area that could have acted as a weakness in a short-term war. 

Before the game, Coach Kang In-kwon expressed his expectations about Tanner’s pitching type, saying, “But since I’ve seen him operate stably so far, I think he’ll show today the same pitching he showed during the regular season if he doesn’t get too nervous.”
