“I think it will go up a little more when the weather gets better.”
KIA Tigers Jung Hae-young made a relief mound in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League LG Twins game held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 28th, recording 2 hits, 2 hits, and no runs in 2 innings.
When the KIA entered an overtime match, they put in 10th inning finisher Jung Hae-young. Jung Hae-young allowed one hit in the 10th and 11th innings, but ended the inning without allowing a run. KIA reaped a 4-3 victory after an extended game. The bullpen, led by Jung Hae-young, contributed to the team’s victory by pitching 6 scoreless innings.
KIA coach Kim Jong-guk토토사이트, who we met ahead of the game against LG in Jamsil on the 29th, said, “Now the bullpen is in full condition. I only played, but my pitching is good. (Kim) Ki-hoon, (Choi) Jimin, and (Lee) Jun-young also improved overall. (Jeong) Hae-young blocked 2 innings well yesterday.”
Jung Hae-young struggled with extreme sluggishness with an average ERA of 9.82, including a blown save in the first 4 games this season. However, he quickly recovered his form, and is on a seven-game scoreless streak.
However, Jung Hae-young confided in an interview after the match against LG on the 28th that he was worried about the restraint and the position. The previous day, Jeong Hae-young had a fast ball speed of 144 km/h and an average speed of 140-141 km/h.
Regarding the redemption of Jung Hae-young, director Kim said, “This is the part that I am thinking about. He thinks that it will rise more when the weather gets better.”
KIA, who had an extended bloody battle the day before, could not operate the winning group normally in the match against LG on the 29th. Jeong Hae-young, Jeon Sang-hyun, and Lee Jun-young, who digested the long fight, are likely to miss. Manager Kim said, “Hae-yeong’s pitching today is not easy. The same goes for Jun-young and Sang-hyeon. I think we should give the three of us a break.”
