Where did the momentum of catching the bear go? Kim Min-woo left a regret at the Samsung match.
Hanwha Eagles right-hander Kim Min-woo started the 3rd game of the season against the Samsung Lions in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 9th.
Kim Min-woo is recording an average ERA of 4.94 with 1 win and 2 losses in 6 games this season. He played 5 games in a month in April and was sluggish with 2 losses and an average ERA of 6.12, but brought his first win of the season against the Doosan Bears on the 3rd. He blocked 6 innings with 1 hit, 4 walks, 6 strikeouts and 1 run. He also created a record for quality starts in two consecutive games (three earned runs or less in six innings starting).
How was the day In the first inning, he turned Jose Pirella into center fielder. Kang Han-ul and Koo Ja-wook allowed consecutive hits, but Kang Min-ho induced a double hit at the plate and overcame the crisis of conceding one run.
The second inning was also scoreless. He gave up two walks and even had a wild pitch, but gave up no runs. At every moment of crisis, he strikes out and turns the atmosphere around. Kim Ji-chan struck out looking and Lee Seong-gyu struck out with a swing.
In the 3rd episode, Pirella and Kang Han-ul gave consecutive hits. He gave up one RBI hit to Ja-wook Koo and eventually dedicated the first run. Then, when Kang Min-ho grounded, Kang Han-wool, who was at third base, came in, increasing the number of runs to 2. The crisis continued. He gave Oh Jae-il a ball that fit his body. But luck came to Kim Min-woo. Kim Tae-goon hit a hard ball toward third base. The ball hit Noh Si-hwan’s body and headed for Oh Seon-jin, the shortstop, and a double play led to the shortstop, second baseman, and first baseman. The broadcaster said, “The circus catch is out.”
Even the 4th was not easy. He gave up a hit to lead batter Kim Ji-chan. Lee Jae-hyeon struck out, but Kim Ji-chan stole and went to second base. After that, Lee Seong-gyu gave 1 RBI and 2 bases, and the run increased to 3. Pirella was turned into a floating ball, but Lee Seong-gyu went to third base. It seemed to end the inning with Kang Han-wool striking out on a swing, but Lee Seong-gyu came home with a strike-knot-out, and Kang Han-ul went to first base. Fortunately, Kang Han-wool, who was trying to steal, was stopped and the fourth inning ended.
A runner was in scoring position in the 5th inning as well. He gave up a walk to lead batter Ja-wook Koo. Kang Min-ho struck out and Oh Jae-il turned shortstop grounder, but Koo Ja-wook went to second base in the process. There was no point conceded by turning Kim Tae-gun into a floating ball.
He also came on the mound in the sixth inning. He gave up a triple to Kim Ji-chan from the start. Lee Jae-hyeon was grounded, but Kim Ji-chan, who was at third base, came home as Lee Seong-gyu gave up a heavy hit.메이저놀이터
In the end, the Hanwha bench chose to replace it. Minwoo Kim was lowered and Daekyung Yoon was raised. On this day, Kim Min-woo recorded 9 hits, 4 walks, 5 strikeouts and 5 runs in 5.1 innings. His ERA rose from 4.94 to 5.45 again. He threw 101 balls (52 fastballs, 32 forks, 15 curveballs, and 2 sliders), and his highest velocity came up to 147 km. He has not been able to continue his good pitching momentum in his last two games.
In the current match, Samsung leads 5-0. If the game ends like this, Kim Min-woo will take the 3rd loss of the season.
