2023 professional baseball celebrating its third week.
In the starting matchup on the 18th, which starts the week, a lot of young pitchers stand out.
In Gocheok, Jang Jae-yeong (21), a promising Kiwoom fireball player, will play against Samsung veteran left-hander Baek Jeong-hyeon (36), who is 15 years older. In the first pitch against Gocheok LG on the 6th, when LG Kang Hyo-jong faced off against a young fireballer, he became the losing pitcher with 4 hits, 5 walks and 3 runs in 4 innings. This time, he is about to overcome his old age with strength and ambition.
In Daejeon, Hanwha’s hopeful Moon Dong-ju (20) will be on a sortie. Third starter this season. Doosan Choi Won-joon will play against the starting lineup.스포츠토토
His last two appearances have created a sensation. On the 6th, he won his first win of the season with 1 hit and no runs in 5 innings against Samsung.
In the match against KIA in Gwangju on the 12th, from the first inning against Park Chan-ho, he threw a four-seam fastball that reached 160.1 km in the third pitch, drawing attention. The fastest pitch by a Korean pitcher since 2011, when the KBO Pitch Tracking System (PTS) was introduced. This means that Korean baseball has finally acquired the 160 km range of native selection. He gave up 2 runs on 3 hits in 6 innings, marking his first quality start in his 6th start in his pro debut, but became the losing pitcher amidst a failure to assist the batting line. 1 win and 1 loss in 2 games, 10 strikeouts and 2 runs in 11 innings with an ERA of 1.64. It is the score of an elite pitcher. It’s better to throw his speed record breaking out of his head.
In Jamsil, Kang Hyo-jong (21) will sortie against NC.
On the 6th, against Gocheok Kiwoom, he recorded his first win of the season with a good pitching with 3 hits, 3 walks, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts and no runs in 5 innings.
Recorded a maximum speed of 152 km. Although it fell short of Jang Jae-young’s maximum speed of 155 km, the maximum speed of the changeup slider exceeded 140 km, drawing attention.
In his second appearance, against Lotte on the 12th, he slightly slowed down with 5 hits, 1 walk and 4 runs in 4 innings. third climb. I wonder what he will do against the NC lineup, which has a good offensive balance between the top and bottom lineups.
The trio of young fireballers who will lead the mound in Korea in the future. A Tuesday start means a Sunday start.
Appeared twice in the first week of his debut. It can be a tough challenge for power-hungry pitchers. On the 23rd, which is already Sunday, it will be held as a daytime game.
If he can pitch twice a week, Jang Jae-young will pitch against Incheon SSG on the 23rd. Moon Dong-ju and Kang Hyo-jong will face off in the Hanwha-LG game held in Daejeon.
