Kiwoom Heroes’ Jang Jae-young (21) pitched a no-hitter but was unable to get his first career win.
Jang Jae-young started the game against KT Wiz in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on Nov. 11, allowing two runs on three hits with two walks and two strikeouts.
The Kiwoom bats scored a whopping five runs in the first inning to take the pressure off Jang’s shoulders. Jang walked Kim Sang-soo in the top of the first and was followed by a single from Anthony Alford to put runners on first and second. However, Park Byung-ho’s throw to the second baseman was caught in a straight line and Kim Sang-soo was unable to return to second base, turning a double play to end the threat.먹튀검증
After a leadoff walk to Moon Sang-chul in the second, Jang Jae-young induced Hwang Jae-gyun to fly out to center field. Lee Ho-yeon walked but got Kang Hyun-woo to fly out to center field. In the third inning, he struck out the side with two strikeouts.
Jang Jae-young, who threw 52 pitches, was replaced by Lee Myung-jong in the fourth inning when Kiwoom led 8-0. With two more innings to go, Jang had a chance to record his first win, but he was unexpectedly removed early.
When asked about Jang’s early departure, Ki said, “Jang Jae-young doesn’t have anything wrong with his body. He was planned to pitch only three innings before the game. We decided that it was better to replace him when he was in a good flow rather than when he was in a crisis, in order to ensure that he would be stable as a starting pitcher.” /firstname.lastname@example.org
