SEOUL, Jan. 28 (Yonhap) — LG Twins manager Yoon Kyung-yeop (55) first looked for the “positive side” of Casey Kelly (33)’s struggles this season.”Kelly has pitched better in the second half of the season in the past,” Yeom said before the team’s game against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Aug. 28, adding, “I will definitely give him at least six innings today to prevent the bullpen from being depleted.”Kelly exceeded Yeom’s expectations, and LG went on to defeat Doosan 9-2.The right-hander went seven innings, allowing two runs on eight hits and two walks to earn his seventh win of the season.Coming into the game, Raul Alcantara (Doosan) was 10-3 with a 2.00 ERA, compared to Kelly’s 6-6 record and 4.65 ERA.However, on June 28, Kelly outdueled Alcantara, who gave up six runs on nine hits in 5⅔ innings.Kelly added a win after going 8 games-54 days without a win since June 6 against the Kiwoom Heroes.Meanwhile, Alcantara suffered his first loss (10-4) in nine games since May 26 against the SSG Landers.”It’s always nice to get a win,” Kelly said after the game, “I wanted to go as long as I could, so I’m happ casinositekingcom y that I went seven innings and the team won.”LG is the team to beat. They are also the team in the lead as of the 28th.That’s why there was even talk of replacing Kelly after his struggles.However, LG chose to stay with Kelly.Coach Yeom Kyung-yup himself said, “Kelly will stay with us until the end of the season.”Kelly joked, “I don’t read Korean, so I didn’t understand the replacement theory,” and added, “Baseball is a business. A team can replace a foreign pitcher if they want to. That’s just the way it is.””I’ve been playing for a great team, LG, for five years now. This year, the team and the front office, including the manager (Cha Myung-seok), have shown their trust in me,” he said, adding, “I’m having a more difficult season than before, but all I can do is prepare and throw my best. It’s also important to believe in myself,” he said, adding that he will remain calm.Kelly has pitched better in the second half of games (28-11, 2.51 ERA) than the first half (30-20, 3.18 ERA) over his four seasons from 2019-2022, as Yoon noted.If Kelly rebounds in the second half this year, LG could be in a stronger position to challenge for the title.
