Yang Hyeon-jong (35, KIA Tigers)’s joint second place with the most wins in his career has moved on to the next opportunity.
Yang Hyeon-jong started in an away game against the LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 28th, recording 5 innings, 7 hits, 5 strikeouts, 3 runs and 3 runs.
Yang Hyeon-jong, who became the winning pitcher against the Samsung Lions on the 22nd and stepped on the 160-win high for the third time in history, was able to tie for second place with Jeong Min-cheol for the most wins with 161 wins on this day.
He had only one win in the three games he pitched this season, but expectations for this game were high as he had been pitching salty water with an ERA of 1.89. KIA coach Kim Jong-guk was also satisfied, saying, “Yang Hyeon-jong is providing a good platform for the team to win.”
However, the pitching content of the day was different from previous games. My usual strong point, Jegu, didn’t listen. From the first inning, the KIA lineup scored 2 points for opposing starter Lim Chan-gyu to lighten his shoulders, but he could not keep the lead.
Yang Hyeon-jong, who blocked the first inning with a tripartite offense, was shaken twice. He gave up walks, hits, and hit balls in a row, and was driven to the brink of reaching the bases safely.
Yang Hyeon-jong struck out the follow-up hitter Park Dong-won and caught Kim Min-seong on a catcher foul fly and showed the potential to raise two outcounts without conceding, but Park Hae-min hit 2 RBIs in a timely manner and allowed a tie.토토사이트
Yang Hyeon-jong, who blocked the 3rd and 4th innings with no runs, conceded 5 more runs.
Yang Hyeon-jong, who was hit by a double by lead batter Kim Min-seong, took a breather by catching Park Hae-min with a second baseman ground ball. However, he was hit in a timely manner by Hong Chang-ki from 1st out and 3rd base and lost a run. Yang Hyeon-jong gave a hit to Moon Seong-joo and was driven to 1st and 2nd base with 1 out, but he put out the fire by beating Oh Ji-hwan and Austin Dean.
By the 5th inning, the number of pitches reached 99, and eventually the KIA bench lowered Yang Hyeon-jong with the start of the 6th inning and put Kim Ki-hoon on the mound. With a 2-3 trailing situation, Yang Hyeon-jong was driven to the crisis of his first loss of the season.
