“It was frustrating.”, “My ball isn’t that good yet…” Left-handed pitcher Kim Yun-shik of LG could not hide his disappointment even after becoming the winning pitcher with 6 scoreless innings.

In a match against the Hanwha Eagles of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 21st, Kim Yun-sik blocked 6 innings with 3 hits, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and no runs, and achieved 3 wins of the season. There was no win for a month after the NC game on the 20th of last month, but it has been a long time since I added a multiplier.

However, Kim Yun-sik said that he is still not satisfied with his pitching. He picked the 4th inning, in which he gave up two walks, and the 5th inning, which had a lot of unfavorable ball counts, as particularly disappointing parts.

He said, “From the first to the third inning, I still think I threw my ball, but in the fourth and fifth innings, I wonder if I should make up for it before the next game.”

“I put everything I wanted up to the 3rd episode, but the 4th and 5th episodes were frustrating. I didn’t go in as I wanted.”

As the power of his changeup declined this year, his performance against right-handed batters deteriorated. Last year, he posted a batting average of 0.277 against left-handed batters and 0.282 against right-handed batters. This year, 0.286 for left-handed batters and 0.324 for right-handed batters, except for the game on the 21st, is a big difference.

As a result, the opposing team is focusing on right-handed batters against Kim Yun-shik. Hanwha also put 7 right-handed batters ahead on the 21st. Kim Yun-sik said, “I didn’t care too much and just kept thinking about my pitch. No matter who the batter is, my ball isn’t that good right now… I think that if I just throw my ball (when it’s good), there will be good enough results.” In the game on the 21st, a confident pitch came out at the beginning of the game and was able to prevent a run.

The changeup is the decisive pitch that made Kim Yun-shik a third postseason starter. Kim Yun-sing is playing the season with a lack of confidence in the deciding ball. “What should I say, I can’t get out of my fingertips and I feel like I’m being filmed. I keep tossing and looking at Trackman data and talking, but it’s frustrating,” he said. Yes. I am trying to get better quickly.”

The fact that the performance was different during the eight games made Kim Yun-shik frustrated. He said, “The training coaches, pitching coaches, and bullpen catcher hyungs helped me a lot, so I got better than at the beginning of the season. But I think it’s still a long way off.”

Still,토스카지노 it seemed that he had regained some confidence with this scoreless pitch. Kim Yun-shik confidently said, “With today’s (6 scoreless innings) opportunity, I will be able to enter more confidently next time. I will prepare well and play well in the next game.”
