In the third inning, Kwak showed off his crisis management skills.

In the fourth inning, Hwang struck out Hwang Jae-gyun and gave up a walk to Bae Jae-dae, but Kim Sang-soo got out of the jam with a fly ball to center field. Catcher Yang Yang-ji then threw out Choi, who tried to steal second base.

Kwak continued to cruise. In the fifth, he handled Kim Min-hyuk’s grounder to short, and Rojas and Chun Sung-ho followed with back-to-back grounders.

The sixth inning was another clean pitching performance. After striking out Kang Baek-ho on three pitches, Kwak retired Moon Sang-chul and Oh Jae-il on a grounder to first base and a straight hit to first base, respectively.

After pitching efficiently through the sixth inning with 80 pitches, Kwak Bin handed the mound baton to side-arm reliever Park Chi-guk in the seventh inning with his team leading 6-0. His fastball was clocked at 153 kilometers per hour on the day, with an average velocity of 150 kilometers per hour.

Although the bullpen gave up a run, the team held on for a 6-1 victory, earning Kwak Bin his fifth win of the season (4-0). He lowered his season ERA to 3.20 with his second 토토사이트 straight no-hitter.

After the game, Kwak Bin said, “I’m grateful to (Yang) Willie for taking a load off my shoulders in the field. Today, I threw according to his signature, so it was a good result.” ”Even in the top of the third inning, he came up at a good time, so I was able to breathe and calm down. It’s a great fortune to be able to work with the best catcher in Korea,” said Lee.

“Last weekend in Gwangju, I threw a lot of pitches and had a tough game, but today I was able to throw comfortably thanks to my beast brothers. I’m still working my way through the starting rotation, but they’re also doing a great job managing the bench and training.” ”My goal is to finish the season injury-free. I will do my best in every game to help the team climb to greater heights.”

Kwok Bin also expressed his gratitude to the fans for their support. “Despite it being a weekday, the fans who filled the first base bleachers today were really loud. Thank you for always being a great support,” he said.
