“It’s a personal honor to have a good match with senior Yang Hyeon-jong.”
No Decision (ND) without a win despite good pitching in 8 scoreless innings. However, Choi Won-tae had no regrets.
In the third game of the weekend series against the KIA Tigers held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 16th, Kiwoom won 2-0 with Lee Jung-hoo’s two-run four at the end of the 10th inning.메이저놀이터
As a result, they have been on a 4-game winning streak recently, putting KIA in a 4-game losing streak. For Kiwoom, it was the first series sweep in 280 days after the Gocheok NC Dinos match on July 8-10, 2022.
It was also Lee Jung-hoo’s second walk-off home run in his personal career. It has been 977 days since the Gocheok Hanwha Eagles game on August 12, 2020.
Choi Won-tae blocked the KIA lineup with 4 hits, 1 walk and no runs during 8 innings. KIA only stepped on second base twice with Park Chan-ho’s sacrifice bunt after Han Seung-taek’s double in the 3rd inning and Han Seung-taek’s hit in the 6th inning. Even so, the follow-up was a misfire. Kiwoom put Kim Jae-woong in the 9th inning and Kim Tae-hoon in the 10th inning and continued the march of 0 neatly, ending the game at the end of the 10th inning.
After the game, Choi Won-tae said, “In the last game (April 11 against Doosan Bears, 3 runs in 5 innings), I threw a lot of fastballs and the two-seam effect was not good, but today I threw a lot of two-seam and had a good effect. The number of pitches also decreased. I decided on a changeup. Using it as a sphere worked well,” he looked back.
On this day, the KIA selection was Yang Hyeon-jong. Yang Hyeon-jong pitched 7 scoreless innings with 9K, but, like Choi Won-tae, recorded a no-decision. Yang Hyeon-jong, who is recording 159 wins in his career, has been delayed again with 160 wins. Song Jin-woo (210 wins) and Jung Min-cheol (161 wins) are the only pitchers with more wins than Yang Hyeon-jong.
Choi Won-tae said, “I am personally honored to have a good match with senior Yang Hyeon-jong.”
He also emphasized, “I didn’t have greed for a complete game. (Kim) I trusted Jaewoong, and the team is on a winning streak, so team victory is more important than personal greed.”
