‘July QS 0+1 Wins 2 Loses’ Command Tower’s painful heart looking at the great pitcher “We need to reduce walks” 

The good pace until May was somewhat disturbed as summer came. How does KIA coach Kim Jong-guk view ‘great pitcher’ Yang Hyeon-jong (KIA Tigers)?아톰카지노

KIA will play the first game of the weekend series against the Lotte Giants at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 28th.

Until May, he played 51 innings in 8 games, showing off his excellent skills with 3 wins and 1 loss, an average ERA of 2.29, and 5 quality starts (6 or more starting innings and 3 ERA or less). However, it was shaken with 6.75 with 1 win and 3 losses in June, and it is not very good in July with 1 win, 2 losses and 4.02.

The concern is that it is getting harder and harder to see quality starts rather than wins and losses. Out of 9 games from June to July, there is only one quality start (6 innings, 1 run, 0 earned run against KT Wiz on June 24). There is not a single game in July.

Yang Hyeon-jong pitched well with 4 runs in 5⅔innings against the NC Dinos the previous day. On the other hand, the KIA lineup was tied up with NC starter Pedi with 5 hits and no runs in 7 innings, creating a further contrast.

In particular, Yang Hyeon-jong allowed Kwon Hee-dong, Do Tae-hoon, and Park Se-hyuk to walk one after another in the 6th inning, and Kim Han-byeol allowed a timely hit and was replaced after giving up the 4th point.

Coach Kim Jong-guk focused on walks. “Hits can be hit, but the final score is a bit so-so. We need to reduce the walks,” he emphasized.

“As the break period gets longer, you may have strength physically, but you may lose your senses. You need to reduce unnecessary walks. If you look at Panoni and Sanchez, they don’t walk very often, so their run rate is low. You have to put more effort into it.”

Regarding Choi Ji-min, who allowed a home run against the NC Dinos in Changwon on the 25th, coach Kim said, “I am not a mentally weak player. A home run can hit. (Jason) Martin hit well. “I was rather sorry for the walk I gave to Park Gun-woo,” he emphasized.

The starting pitcher on this day was Eui-ri Lee. Director Kim said, “Lee Eui-ri has a good pitch, but stable control is important. Of course, he knows it well. I hope he will play aggressively.”
