‘I can’t get a zero point’ 0.1 inning super rookie, ‘160km fastball is useless without a ball’
‘Out of 8 total pitches, 7 balls and only 1 strike’ Even a fastball with a maximum speed of 152km was useless if it did not enter the strike zone.스포츠토토
Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 7th, the second game of the three-game series between the Doosan Bears and Hanwha Eagles. To avenge the loss the previous day, manager Choi Won-ho put Moon Dong-ju on the mound as the starting pitcher. The result was successful.
On this day, Hanwha starter Moon Dong-ju threw a fastball with a maximum speed of 160.1 km and a curveball with a large drop in the right place at the right time, allowing 7 hits and 1 run in 6 innings. He showed pitching for the first no-four ball game of the season.
Keeping a 3-1, 2-point lead, coach Choi Won-ho took out Kim Seo-hyun’s card in the 7th inning following starter Moon Dong-ju. Before getting on the mound, Kim Seo-hyun warmed up her shoulders by pitching in the bullpen while coaches Park Seung-min and Lee Dong-geol watched.
When Kim Seo-hyun’s pitching leaned to one side, coach Park Seung-min asked if she could feel the balance shifting to one side when her arms crossed.
Kim Seo-hyun, who has regained a sense of stability after coach Park Seung-min’s one-point coaching. The bullpen catcher clearly caught the ball accurately, but at the end of Kim Seo-hyun’s powerful ball, he took off his stretching mitt and waved his hand, complaining of pain. Kim Seo-Hyun’s ball was more powerful than the number taken by restraint.
After warming up in the bullpen, Kim Seo-hyun approached the bullpen catcher who received the ball and expressed her gratitude.
Coach Park Seung-min encourages Kim Seo-hyun, who is on the mound right before pitching, ‘Let’s block it well!’
Kim Seo-hyun climbed the mound to protect senior Moon Dong-joo’s starter victory. The first batter creaked from the game with Doosan Rojas. From the first pitch, it fell outward, and the second fastball was also seen. When the third fastball entered the strike zone, Rojas turned the bat. The result is a fly in left field. After that, the 135 km slider thrown at Park Gye-beom hit his body. When he recorded 4 pitches on 4 pitches on the previous pitch, he showed a bad side again.
Commentator Jeong Min-cheol, who watched Kim Seo-hyun’s pitching, commented, “You seem to have a lot of thoughts. In your debut season, you should throw simply. Each time you throw, the angle of your arm is slightly different.”
1st out and 1st base Lee Yu-chan allowed a straight walk. Coach Park Seung-min, who found pitcher Kim Seo-hyun who couldn’t throw a strike, had a ball in his hand. 0.1 inning, 4 balls, 2 runs, 2 runs.
0.1 innings Coach Park Seung-min, ‘This isn’t what it is’
Park Gye-beom and Lee Yu-chan, who were the runners in charge of Kim Seo-hyun, both stepped home when Yang Eui-ji hit at the right time, and Hanwha could not protect the victory of starter Moon Dong-ju even after using Kim Seo-hyun and Kim Beom-soo cards in the 7th inning.
Kim Seo-Hyun must have known through the mound that day that it is difficult for a pitcher who throws a fastball to survive in the first team if he cannot throw the ball within the strike zone.
Seohyun Kim, who had 7 pitches in 9 innings in 9 games in May. In June, Kim Seo-hyun’s walk rate increased rapidly with 4 games, 2.2 innings and 9 pitches. We cheer for the super rookie who is unable to reach zero to overcome the growing pains and grow one step further.
