“Hae-young has to do it.”
A shaky finishing pitcher. The command tower did not lose faith.
KIA Tigers coach Kim Jong-guk expressed his intention to continue playing the finalist Jeong Hae-young. It is a frustrating situation with no suitable alternative.
Coach Kim reviewed the previous day’s game in a briefing after the season 5 game against Samsung, which was scheduled to be held at Daegu Lions Park on the 18th, was canceled due to rain.
Jung Hae-young, who took the mound in the bottom of the ninth with a 7-3 lead by 4 points, gave up 3 runs (2 earned) with 2 hits and 1 walk in ⅓ innings and passed the mound to Ji-min Choi. Faulty plays made it difficult for the closer, but the pitch was not normal and the content was not good. Choi Ji-min, who took the mound with 1 out and 2nd base by 1 point, took care of Koo Ja-wook and Kang Min-ho and kept a 7-6 victory.
Director Kim Jong-guk explained, “Hae-young didn’t have much speed. With Pirella’s timely hits, it would be difficult to stop Koo Ja-wook and Kang Min-ho in a bad and stagnant atmosphere, so I recently put up Jimin, who has good momentum.”먹튀검증
He sighed, but the finishing concerns are currently in progress. As for the substitute finisher, veteran pitchers such as Jeon Sang-hyun and Jang Hyun-shik are in poor condition.
Coach Kim said, “I don’t know if there is a clear alternative, but experienced players such as Sang-hyun and Hyun-sik are not in good shape. It’s good to leave it to Jimin, but it’s not easy to leave it to finish because of his lack of experience. I think Hae-young should do it.” said.
Jung Hae-young is recording an average ERA of 3.77 with 3 wins, 1 loss and 3 saves in 16 games. Blon save twice. As his velocity this season stayed at the early 140km mark, his confidence is slightly off.
