Even after cutting off ‘bad luck’… “A high ball in the US, a manned ball that falls in Korea works well”

Kiwoom starter Ariel Hurado cut off bad luck in seven games and tasted a sweet victory.

Kiwoom won 1-0 in a home game against KIA held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 13th. After starting that day, Rado recorded 3 hits, 1 walk and 4 strikeouts in 6 innings, posting his 4th win (7 losses) of the season.

It is the first scoreless game of the season. While on the mound, Hurado cooked the KIA lineup with five types of pitches, including a fastball that reached up to 149 km, a slider, and a changeup. His unique matching pitching worked well. Under the protection of the beasts behind his back, he turned the KIA hitters one after another into a beomta.

After the game, Hurado smiled brightly, saying, “I was lucky.” Hurado was not lucky this season. On the day Hurado pitched, Kiwoom’s batting line was particularly quiet. Hurado’s scoring support per game averaged 2.98토토사이트, the lowest among starting pitchers who filled the regulation innings. In the game against Gocheok LG on the 7th, he came down the mound with a 2-point lead with 6 innings and 1 run (visa), but the bullpen and batting line were silent, so he lost his chance to win.

He also wrote a false name (?) as ‘the pitcher with the most losses in the league’ (7 losses). However, Hurado’s ERA is 9th in the league (2.86), and the on-base percentage per inning is 10th (1.23).

Even on the day of the 4th victory, the support of the other line was extremely lacking. In the first inning, Edison Russell’s timely hit from 1 out 1 and 2 base gave Kim Hye-sung home, and the score stopped. However, Hurado broke the bad luck on his own by unleashing a ‘salty pitch’ that allowed only 3 hits against 22 batters.

Finally, ‘season 4 wins’. Hurado turned the ball around, saying, “We only scored one point on the scoring side, but we were able to win thanks to the bullpen that came out behind us.” I did not receive support from other lines, but there was no burden. He said, “I think (the lack of scoring support) is part of baseball. My mission is to somehow contribute to the team’s victory,” he said. “Today, I climbed the mound with only this mindset.

Yoo In-gu was cited as a secret plan to block the KIA lineup well. Hurado said, “In the major leagues, the game was won with the ball formed above the strike zone. On the other hand, in Korean baseball, manned balls that fall to the ground seem to work well,” he said.

It is said that the ball took a good turn on this day. When he said that there were three slubs recorded on the pitching analysis table, he guessed, “I usually throw all the cutters, sliders, and curveballs, but today, those three rotations are well matched, so it seems to be recorded differently.” It was also a good thing that he did not allow a hit to Socrates Brito (KIA), who is recording a batting average of 0.444 (4 hits in 9 at bats) against himself.

With good pitching that day, Hurado regained an ERA of 2 points. Hurado expressed his aspirations, saying, “There are still a lot of seasons left, and there are many opportunities to start, so I will try to keep my ERA as low as possible while playing the best game.”
