Frequent appearances and a large number of pitches. However, he even took on starting duties for the team. This is the bitter current state of the Korean baseball team’s mound.

The day of the decisive battle on the 13th was bright. Korea (1 win, 2 losses) will play the final Group B match against China (3 losses) at 7:00 p.m. 12:00 noon Australia (2 wins, 1 loss) – Czech Republic (1 win, 2 losses) The result will determine whether or not to advance to the quarterfinals.

The possibility exists. If Korea beats China and the Czech Republic beats Australia by conceding four or more points, a miracle scenario can be written. It is a situation where we have to pray for Czech propaganda.

After the match against the Czech Republic on the 12th, Korea released its starting pitcher for the match against China. Won Tae-in goes to the forefront of the mound. Won Tae-in made two relief pitches in the first round, digested 55 pitches in 3⅓ innings (1⅓ innings → 2 innings), and after a two-day break, sortie as a starter.

If he expands his scope to the evaluation match held in Japan, he threw 5⅓ innings (including 2 innings against Hanshin) for as many as four days and recorded 82 pitches. No matter how familiar Won Tae-in is with his starting job, it is not easy to pitch as a starting pitcher after only working as a bullpen pitcher recently. He’s also got a lot of balls already.

Korean mounds have plenty of starting resources. In addition to Kim Gwang-hyun, Ko Young-pyo, and Park Se-woong, who have already played roles in the finals, there are Yang Hyeon-jong, Gu Chang-mo, So-jun So-jun, Lee Eui-ri, Kim Yun-sik, Kwak Bin, and Won Tae-in. Nevertheless, Won Tae-in, who had a tight pitching schedule, faced the cruel reality of having to start as a starter in the match against China.

Overall, while the pitching staff was in poor condition, the pitching of Hyeon-jong Yang, Chang-mo Koo, So-jun So, and Yun-sik Kim lost trust. Yang Hyeon-jong and So Joon So-jun appeared in the game against Australia, and each was sluggish with 3 hits (1 home run) and 3 runs in 0 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk and 2 runs in ⅓ innings. Koo Chang-mo, who played against Japan, gave up 2 runs on 2 hits in ⅓ innings, and Yun-shik Kim scored 3 runs by throwing 3 pitches without an out count. Eui-ri Lee also allowed 3 walks in ⅓ innings against Japan.먹튀검증

Korea had limited options. Pitchers who collapsed after starting with the bullpen have an advantage in terms of stamina compared to other resources, but in the end, Won Tae-in, the trustworthy man, was dropped.

There is no doubt that it is a situation where victory is absolutely necessary. However, the reality of the Korean mound is so poor that it has no choice but to rely on Won Tae-in, who is about to break 100 pitches in a week against the weakest China.
