Lee Min-ho from Whimoon High School is a right-handed pitcher who has received a lot of attention to the extent that he was called by LG as the first nomination in 2020. Until last year, he went 24-23 with an earned run average of 4.53, throwing 345.2 innings in 74 career games (67 starts). In particular, last year, he also posted his first double-digit victory in his debut with a 12-8 record and an earned run average of 5.51.

However, Lee Min-ho has not been able to smile this season. He was dropped in 4 starts and had his first appearance on April 5 against Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes (5 hits, 2 walks, 2 runs, 0 earned run in 5.1 innings), but suffered a right elbow flexor injury. Afterwards, he returned in June amid high expectations, but showed severe ups and downs. Before this NC game, his performance was 2 losses and an average ERA of 3.86 without a win in 4 games (18.2 innings).
Even on this day, Lee Min-ho did not show an impressive appearance. It was because he was caught in the jegu hunting.
He wasn’t good from the start. Bad luck also overlapped. In the bottom of the first inning, lead hitter Park Min-woo attempted to bunt, and catcher Park Dong-won made a throwing error and was driven to second base safely. He then gave up a left-handed hit to Kim Seong-wook, and a timely left-handed hit by Park Kun-woo, giving him his first run in vain.
Shaking Lee Min-ho walked Jason Martin, then allowed Cheon Jae-hwan a push walk, adding one run. After that, he led Do Tae-hun to the second baseman double hit, but in the meantime, third base runner Park Gun-woo also dug into the home. It was comforting to prevent an additional run by tying Park Seok-min to a strikeout on a swing. In the top of the second inning, LG brought Lee Ji-gang to the mound.
The final result was 1 inning, 3 hits, 2 walks, 1 strikeout and 3 runs. He threw a total of 29 balls, most of which were cutters (16) and also had sliders (6). He utilized only five pitches of his fastball, which was measured to a maximum velocity of 141 km, and also used one pitch each of his curveball and changeup.
Lee Min-ho, who had a lot of expectations before the opening, was dropped as the 4th starter. Due to his sluggishness, LG was forced to proceed with a bullpen day.
