72 pitches, 6 innings, 1 run… Consolation in a 1-11 loss. Last year’s good pitch wasn’t shiny
An unfortunate defeat of 1-9. Still, the LG Twins let go.
This is because it confirmed the health of left-handed starter Kim Yun-shik. In the home game against the Kiwoom Heroes held at Jamsil Stadium on the 10th, Kim Yun-shik started and pitched 5 hits, 4 walks, 4 strikeouts and 1 run in 6 innings. In the top of the 7th inning, leading 1-0, Russell was immediately replaced by Jung Woo-young after allowing a right-handed triple. After that, the LG bullpen collapsed and gave up a whopping 9 points, eventually losing 1-11.
Kim Yun-sik held up well, leading to a fierce battle until the middle.
Kim Yun-shik, who got off to a good start by striking out Lee Jung-hoo in the top of the 1st inning, allowed Kim Hye-seong to hit after 2 kills, but finished off the 1st inning by catching Russell in the 4th with a grounder in front of the shortstop. Kim Yun-sik, who finished the second inning with a tripartite, gave up a hit to leader Kim Hui-jip in the top of the third inning and faced a crisis with 2 out and 3 base, but Lee Won-seok caught Lee Won-seok with a fly in right field and continued to score no runs. In the beginning of the 4th inning, he committed a triple offense, and in the 5th and 6th he allowed one hit each, but there was no crisis. He continued good pitching by properly mixing a fastball with a maximum speed of 143km, a changeup, a slider, and a curveball.
In his first appearance against the KT Wiz on April 2, he gave up 4 hits (1 home run) and 2 runs in 1 inning and was anxious. He had difficulties in the early part of the regular season where he could not improve his pitch count due to attending the WBC.
Still, after that, he fulfilled his responsibility as a starter by blocking 5 innings, including against Samsung on April 8 (5 innings scoreless), against Doosan on the 14th (win by 1 run in 5 innings), and against NC on the 20th (win by 1 run in 5 innings). On April 26, against SSG, he became a losing pitcher with 6 hits and 5 runs in 4 innings. On this day, he was in sluggish form, giving 4 walks. After that, fatigue piled up and the mound was delayed for a few days, and the break was extended due to the cancellation of three consecutive games due to rain, so he made the mound two weeks later on the 10th and showed improvement. The fact that he blocked 6 innings with 72 pitches seems like he could handle more innings if his stamina goes up.안전놀이터
Kim Yun-sik was given the role of the third starter this season. He is the most trusted among domestic starters, and although it is not the overwhelming pitching of the second half of last year, he continues to provide reliable pitching that can be trusted.
The 4th and 5th starters are still unstable, but if Kim Yun-sik holds up well with Casey Kelly and Adam Plutko’s foreign one-two punch, it seems that the starting lineup can help to establish itself.
