There were no home runs allowed in the last six games in a row. However, the result was a loss, and he was the most unsatisfactory pitcher all season.
Samsung Lions Won Tae-in (23) started the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League visit match against Doosan Bears held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 23rd, giving up 13 hits, 4 strikeouts and 6 runs in 4⅔ innings.
Won Tae-in, who achieved quality starts in the last 3 consecutive games (6 or more starting innings, 3 earned runs or less), but this day was the worst pitching of the season.
Manager Park Jin-man, who we met at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 17th, said, “Won Tae-in can be a pitcher, but what I regret more than that is because he is right, but I think the number of balls is high in the beginning.” I have to be in control within the range, but there is a big difference between strike and ball.”
“I have to go in confidently, but I’m at a disadvantage because I keep throwing balls that go out of the strike zone a lot from an advantageous count.” told
He fought a daring battle. Out of 102 pitches, 70 were strikes. The problem was that it could not be precisely controlled into a corner. This was perfect for becoming a prey for Doosan hitters.
This is a result that is all the more difficult to accept because it was recently on a clear upward trend. The highest speed of the fastball reached 149 km and the average was 146 km, which was good compared to previous games this season. Not only fastballs (38 pitches), but also changeups (25 pitches), cut fastballs (19 pitches), and sliders (17 pitches) were distributed evenly.
Nevertheless, Won Tae-in was beaten. I was attacked by Doosan lineup without distinction of slider. The dreaded home run nightmare was erased, but it was a more painful result than that. In the third inning, he allowed 4 hits in a row and allowed 5 runs while giving up 3 long hits.
The Samsung bench did not move easily.메이저놀이터 It seemed that he wanted Won Tae-in to do the minimum for him as a starting pitcher. However, as they gave up consecutive hits with one out count until the fifth inning, manager Park Jin-man eventually lowered Won Tae-in and replaced Kim Dae-woo.
Won Tae-in’s ERA rose vertically from 4.10 to 4.86, and he was on the verge of losing his third season (2 wins).
