After joining the team during the 2019 season and playing for the KBO League Samsung Lions until 2021, he signed a minor league contract with Cincinnati in January 2022 and appeared on the big league mound for the first time as a member of Cincinnati that day.
It was the first big league appearance in four years since April 28, 2019, when he was a member of Kansas City.
He allowed six strong batted balls, but kept his damage to a minimum by blocking runs. He went down after passing the mound to Lucas Sims with one out and first base in the fifth inning.
Henry Ramos, who played for KT Wiz last year but left the team after 18 games due to a toe injury, also played as Cincinnati’s starting right fielder.
He was quiet at bat with no hits in 2 at-bats, 1 walk and 1 strikeout, but he prevented a run with decisive defense in the top of the 7th inning. When Francisco Lindor’s right-handed hit from 2nd out and 2nd base, an accurate home throw put out second base runner Francisco Alvarez. It was a neat throw that bounced in front of the catcher and went straight into the catcher’s mitt.
Mets starting pitcher Kodaisenga suffered a loss. He became the losing pitcher with 8 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk, 7 strikeouts and 5 runs in 5 innings. Season 2 losses (4 wins). His ERA for the season rose to 4.14.
He only allowed 4 runs in the 1st inning. He allowed 4 hits and 1 walk to 5 batters in a row with 2nd out and 2nd base, conceding a lot of runs.
After the 2nd inning, he seemed to find stability again, but the damage increased as he was hit with a home run by Spencer Steer in the 5th inning.
