SSG Landers coach Kim Won-hyung expressed his gratitude to left-hander native ace Kim Kwang-hyun on the 13th.
Head coach Kim praised Kim Kwang-hyun, who pitched well with four hits, two walks, five strikeouts and one run in six innings against KT Wiz the previous day, saying, “I gave him a good start to the week.”
Although they lost 0-3 due to kt starter Wes Benjamin’s eight scoreless innings, it was evaluated that it was an opportunity to secure the team’s mound that was recently shaken.메이저사이트
Except for the previous day, SSG’s average ERA of starting pitchers soared to 7.80 while losing seven games (2 wins and 1 draw) in the last 10 games.
SSG’s mound, which also recorded an ERA of 6.00, is considered the weakest among the 10 clubs in recent years.
Kim Kwang-hyun also collapsed with nine hits, two walks and four runs in 3⅔3 innings against the Hanwha Eagles on the 6th, the previous appearance.
Head coach Kim Won-hyung met with reporters at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul and said, “I wanted the rest of the starting pitchers except Roenis Elias to play their roles this week, but Kwang-hyun gave us a good start to the week, even though he lost a point.”
He also praised Kim Kwang-hyun’s good defense in the top of the sixth inning with two outs and runners on first and third bases.
Kim Kwang-hyun ran to catch a ground ball flowing toward the third baseman, twisted his body in the air, and threw it to first base perfectly.
Head coach Kim said, “It was a rare defense that Kim Kwang-hyun could do,” adding, “When I was young, I couldn’t make a snap throw, but now I throw the ball naturally even from a short distance as a practice.”
Head coach Kim, who was canceled against the Doosan Bears due to rain, hoped, “I hope today’s rain will change the atmosphere.”
