“In the 9th inning, 2 outs, 3 walks → 5 points allowed” 1st nomination prospect cancels 1st division…”In the first team, control of the ball is the most important.”
Kiwoom Heroes removed Joo Seung-woo from the first division entry and called up Yang Ji-yul and Kim Si-ang before the game against Lotte Giants in the “2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League” at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 10th.
Joo Seung-woo, a first-round pick in the 2022 rookie draft, has a 1.157 ERA in six games (7 innings) this season. In the game on the 9th, Kiwoom took the mound in the top of the ninth inning with a 10-3 lead, but after catching two outcounts, he allowed three consecutive walks, eventually leaving the mound without finishing the game. Kiwoom managed to escape its ninth consecutive loss by allowing five runs in the ninth inning with a 10-8 victory. 토토
Head coach Hong Won-ki said, “It’s hard to stop losing consecutive games,” adding, “There were some games where we lost unfortunately and gave up easily during the losing streak.” “I think it’s very hard to break the losing streak in itself,” he said. “Yesterday’s game was harder than the losing streak.” “Baseball is not easy,” he sighed.
Regarding Joo Seung-woo, who was eliminated from the first division, head coach Hong Won-ki said, “He has shown good performance before, but control is important to survive in the first division in the end. No matter how good a pitch is, it is a problem with the skill itself to collapse so suddenly. You need to polish it a little more. “In order to grow and survive in the first division, I emphasize once again, but the first thing is control of the ball,” he stressed.
Kim Hye-sung, who was replaced due to injury in the game on the 8th, played as a designated hitter on the 9th and scored three hits and two RBIs in four at-bats. Coach Hong Won-ki said, “I don’t have a player now, but Lee Jung-hoo and Kim Hye-sung are the players who led our team’s attack. There is definitely a difference between what is there and what is not. However, we have to think about how we can win without these players. That’s how we can become a strong team
