4 innings & most individual 6K power throws… ‘Alternative selection’ audition faded due to mistakes

 ‘Alternative selection’ was 100% perfect for my pitching. However, the defense did not lighten the pitcher’s shoulders.

In Kiwoom Heroes, two starting pitchers were recently excluded from the first team entry.스포츠토토

Ariel Furado took a break for 10 days from the 16th. Jeong Chan-heon developed back pain, and as a result of the examination on the 22nd, he was told that he needed surgery. In fact, it has been difficult to climb this season.

Hurado is returning, but he needs a player to fill the starting position. On the 20th, against Gocheok Lotte, rookie Oh Sang-won came up and scored 3 runs in 1⅔ innings. In the first inning, Lim Byeong-wook’s bold sliding led to a fall and a run was made, and the rookie pitcher was shaken. First of all, his posture and pitch on the mound received a passing grade.

In the Gocheok Doosan match on the 22nd, Kim Seon-gi started. Kim Seon-gi, who joined in the 2nd round of the 2018 rookie draft (8th overall), prepared as a starter in spring camp this season, but in the first team, there were only 10 relief appearances. In the Futures League, he has been playing mostly as a relief pitcher lately.

Prior to the game, Hong Won-ki Kiwoom coach explained, “I hope to throw up to 5 innings. I am looking at up to 3 innings because something can happen.”

On this day, Kim Seon-gi started with three hits and three runs in the first inning. However, he showed off his power as he struck out two of the three out counts.

Kim Seon-gi, who sweated a bit in the first inning, struck out both first two batters in the second inning. Afterwards, he got a hit, but did not allow a run as he grounded the follow-up hitter.

In the 3rd inning, the loss continued. Kim Seon-gi’s pitching was not bad. The defense caught up. After being hit by lead batter Kim Jae-ho, he caught both Lohas and Yang Seok-hwan with floating balls. However, a fly ball in Kim Jae-hwan’s at-bat led to a mistake by first baseman Kim Woong-bin. Kim Seon-ki, who could not finish the inning, allowed two runs with consecutive hits from Kim In-tae and Kang Seung-ho.

He stabilized again in the fourth inning. Leading batter Heo Kyung-min was hit, but he struck out both Jo Su-haeng and Kim Jae-ho, and caught Rojas with a floating ball from first baseman.

71 total pitches. Kim Seon-gi finished the game by handing the mound to Yang Hyun in the 5th inning. 4 innings, 8 hits, 6 strikeouts, 5 runs (2 earned). The highest speed of the fastball was 146 km, and the slider (24), slub (12), changeup (2), and curve (1) were mixed to face the Doosan lineup.

On August 7, 2019, he achieved the most individual strikeouts, exceeding the 5 strikeouts he recorded in the Ulsan Lotte game, but Kim Seon-gi had to go down the mound with heavy steps.
