KIA Tigers rookie Yoon Young-chul pitched his first scoreless pitch since his debut.
Yoon Young-chul 먹튀검증started the match against the NC Dinos held at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 27th and pitched 3 hits, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts and no runs in 5 innings. He went down from 0-0 and did not record a win or loss. He recently had a great starting matchup with national team ace Koo Chang-mo, who throws an impregnable ball.
In his third appearance this year, he showed his presence without regret, defending the mound without conceding for the first time. Following 5 runs in 3⅔ innings against Kiwoom on the 5th and 2 runs in 4⅓ innings against Samsung on the 21st, he seemed to be adapting to the pros in 3 games. He had a bases loaded crisis due to an infielder’s error, but he did not waver.
The initial pace was good. He blocked it with a three-way offense in the first and second innings in a row. It was impressive that he struck out first batter Park Min-woo with a miss swing and struck out another miss swing in an 11-pitch game with Seo Ho-cheol. He did not break down at Yonggyunuli. In the second inning, Son Ah-seop, Cheon Jae-hwan, and Kim Seong-wook were all induced to hit.
Episode 3 was a crisis. Kim Joo-won struck out and Oh Young-soo and Ahn Joong-yeol hit consecutive hits. Ahn Joong-yeol’s homerun ball hit the left wall, and the runner on first base was also expected to be caught, so luck followed that he could not advance to third base. In the 2nd, 1st and 3rd bases, Seo Ho-cheol was caught as a floating ball in center field and avoided a run.
In the 4th inning, he gave up a walk and struck out Son A-seop and Cheon Jae-hwan, but third baseman Byun Woo-hyuk caught a ground ball from Kim Seong-wook and made a mistake. The game didn’t end as it was, so the aftertaste was not clear. Kim Joo-won walked and was driven to the bases loaded, but Oh Young-soo was induced with a floating ball from center fielder and wiped his heart out. It was a moment of brilliance.
In the 5th inning, the first batter Ahn Joong-yeol gave up a heavy hit, but Park Min-woo’s straight hit to first base became a double hit and erased two outcounts. Then, Seoho Railway also caught a floating ball in right field and continued the number of Young. The number of pitches reached 83, and from the 6th inning, he passed the mound to Jang Hyun-sik and finished the mound. It was a great pitch.
