The Kiwoom Heroes took off their 3-game losing streak thanks to Ace Ahn Woo-jin’s counterattack.
Kiwoom won 7-3 in the home game against the Doosan Bears held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 18th, ending its 3rd losing streak and rising from 8th to 7th, overtaking the Samsung Lions, whose match was canceled due to rain that day. Doosan, who had won 5 consecutive wins in 2 years, stopped at the threshold of 20 wins as the streak ended. It was tied for 4th place with NC Dinos, who also did not play that day.
It was a game that once again confirmed the power of Ahn Woo-jin, the best pitcher in the KBO league 카지노사이트.
Woojin An won his third win (two losses) of the season with 6 hits, 1 walk, 7 strikeouts and 2 runs in 6 innings. However, he got off to a shaky start, hitting 25 batters in 6 innings, throwing 99 balls, and even throwing 35 balls in the first inning alone.
However, Ahn Woo-jin, who regained stability from the 2nd inning and kept scoreless until the 4th inning, faced the biggest crisis in the 5th inning.
He allowed 3 consecutive hits to Jang Seung-hyun, Lee Yu-chan, and Su-bin Jeong, allowing 1 run and falling into the crisis of losing 1st and 3rd bases safely while being chased by 3-2, 1 point.
In this crisis, Ahn Woo-jin’s true value shone.
He struck out Kye-beom Park with 3 pitches looking, Ui-ui Yang with a 3-pitch swing, and Seok-hwan Yang with a 3-pitch swing. He got out of the crisis himself by striking out three times in a row on nine pitches with a fastball, slider, and curveball. Three strikeouts in three consecutive batters is the 14th record in KBO league history.
While Ahn Woo-jin fought back and endured 6 innings, Kiwoom scored 4 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning with Lee Won-seok’s wedge home run (Season 2), Kim Tae-jin’s 2 RBIs, right field double, and Kim Hye-sung’s sacrifice fly to left field. Cold water was poured on the will to pursue.
Lee Won-seok’s first home run after moving to Samsung to Kiwoom, and his first home run in 40 days since the LG match on April 7, and Edison Russell hit a timely hit with 2 RBIs in the left field from 1 out 1 and 2 base in the 1st inning. With 2 hits and 3 RBIs in at-bats, it was a great boost to the victory.
In addition, Lee Jeong-hoo recorded 3 hits in 4 at-bats and 2 runs, and in the last 3 games, he recorded 8 hits in 11 at-bats (0.727 batting average), completely recovering his sense of hitting and raising his batting average to 0.267.
