Kiwoom Heroes Yasiel Hurado took a 10-day vacation. Hurado showed the presence of an outside ace in the Gwangju match against the KIA Tigers on the 15th. He was a good pitcher with 6 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 3 strikeouts and 2 runs (2 earned) against 24 batters in 6 innings. He led the team to a 9-6 victory and won 8 wins (8 losses) of the season.
Episode 3 was a crisis. He got a shortstop deep infield hit by Park Chan-ho from second out and second base. It was a situation where two runners were to be laid ahead of the center batting line leading to Kim Do-young and Na Seong-beom. 토토 At this time, the play of shortstop Kim Hui-jip shone. While the second base runner was running around third base, he quickly sprayed it to third base and caught the out.
Hurado played a good pitching scoreless until the 5th inning, but after 2 outs in the 6th inning, Na Seong-beom hit a two-run home run with Woo Joong-wol. At this time, second baseman Kim Hye-sung was disappointed. Park Chan-ho’s double play from 1st baseman to 3rd baseman – 2nd baseman – 1st baseman did not work out smoothly. Second baseman Kim Hye-seong hit a home run after saving the first baseman by throwing a wrong throw.
A game of 6 scoreless innings turned into a game of 2 runs. Still, he succeeded in making a quality start in six innings, which is the responsibility of a starting pitcher. It was the 15th QS of the season. He did his part as a starting pitcher to be trusted and watched. In particular, he has the most innings (142 innings) among pitchers in the KBO League. He has excellent league indicators such as an earned run average of 2.85, a batting average of 2.4 4, and a WHIP of 1.118.
It is canceled on the 16th entry and has time to recharge for 10 days. Coach Hong Won-ki said before the game, “I had elbow surgery (2021 ligament surgery). I tried to have an early recharge time at the end of the first half. You have to think about it. Have time to recharge.”
Kiwoom recruited Hurado with a full bet of $1 million. Lee Jung-hoo wanted to win his first championship before advancing to the major leagues. However, Lee Jung-hoo’s injury, season out, and FA players such as Won Jong-hyun and Lee Hyeong-jong’s failure led to a long way from the top 5. However, Hurado is pitching at the highest level in the league. It’s difficult to win, but I gave myself time to recharge because I couldn’t help but think about next year.
After the game on the 15th, Hurado said, “Today’s game seems to have progressed in a good flow. The team needed a victory, but I am happy with the good result. I hit a home run with a pitch in the middle. I tried to forget the situation quickly, I was able to finish the inning by adjusting my pitching,” he said of his pitching.
He continued, “I will focus on recovery and recharging. My shoulders and arms are very tired. As I played the most innings in the league, I will restore my condition again during this break.” When he returns after 10 days, he and Ace An Woo-jin will lead the team to the last place along with the challenge for 10 wins in the season
