Growing concerns about ‘WBC sequelae’… The staggering Young Gun of the National University, ‘The Day of Shame’
National team pitchers who went to the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) fell into a hunting game in their first appearance in the regular season.
KT Wiz and LG Twins played the second game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Opening Series at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 2nd. So Joon Sohn and Yunshik Kim, who participated in the WBC that day, drew attention as they competed against each other.
However, So-Jun So-Jun and Yoon-Sik Kim suffered the pain of an early steel plate leaving desperate pitching details. Joon Sohn received 10 hits in 2⅓ innings without even completing the third inning. He contributed a whopping 9 points. This is what caused the team to lose 9-10.
LG did not wait long for Kim Yun-shik. After failing to overcome the sluggishness in the second inning following the first inning, he got off the mound before the inning was over. Kim Yun-sik collapsed with 4 hits (1 home run), 2 walks and 2 runs in 1 inning.
In addition to So-Jun Sohn and Yoon-Sik Kim, NC Dinos Chang-Mo Koo, who had been on the WBC schedule, scrambled as a starting pitcher. Gu Chang-mo, who had been cruising by giving up only one walk until the second inning, gave up three hits in the third inning and earned his first run. 토토사이트
It was just the beginning. Koo Chang-mo, who allowed an additional 2 points in the 4th inning, eventually went down the mound in the 5th inning. Chang-mo Koo also suffered sluggishness with 7 hits (1 home run), 3 walks, 6 strikeouts and 6 runs in 4⅓ innings. NC, whose Koo Chang-mo was greatly shaken, suffered a painful come-from-behind defeat 6-8.
Concerns about the aftereffects of WBC are amplifying. The staggering young guns of the national team were humiliated side by side. So Joon So, Chang-mo Koo, and Yun-shik Kim, who had not contributed to the national team at all, lowered their heads in their first start for their team.
On the same day, only Eui-ri Lee, who was selected for the Literature SSG, did her part. He pitched 5 innings and became the winning pitcher with 3 hits, 3 strikeouts and 3 runs (1 earned). However, he was not a satisfactory pitcher. 6 walks were tee in the ok.
Na Seong-beom, who missed all the exhibition games and the opening series due to a calf injury, had a bad calf condition since the WBC. Yang Hyeon-jong, who was not in normal condition, failed to start the opening series at all.
