Nam Ji-min (22, Hanwha Eagles) showed extreme pitching in less than a week. The guts against pitcher Yang Hyeon-jong (35, KIA Tigers) were not visible, and while catching one outcount, he gave up 7 runs and collapsed greatly.
Nam Ji-min started the mound against kt Wiz in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Suwon kt Wiz Park on the 16th.
Recently, Nam Ji-min joined the starting lineup to fill the void due to teammate Birch Smith’s (33) shoulder injury. On the 11th, against Gwangju KIA Tigers, he helped the team win 5-4 with a good pitching of 5 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, and no runs in a starting match with opposing ace Yang Hyeon-jong against the KIA Tigers.
There was a good pitch in the previous game, so Nam Ji-min’s pitching attracted a lot of attention. However, that expectation turned to nothing from the first inning. Nam Ji-min was unable to block the kt lineup and collapsed while allowing the batter to turn.
He gave up hits to Min-Hyuk Kim, Anthony Alford, Byung-Ho Park, and Jun-Tae Kim, and allowed doubles to Seong-Woo Jang, Kyung-Soo Park, and Sang-Soo Kim, and was greatly shaken.
When the score gap widened to 0-7, the Hanwha bench posted Han Seung-hyeok on behalf of Nam Ji-min ahead of the match with Kim Min-hyuk, who entered the second at-bat only at the end of the first inning. Since then, Han Seung-hyuk blocked the first run and second base without conceding, so no additional runs were scored. His final performance was 44 pitches in ⅓ innings, giving up 7 runs on 7 hits and 1 walk. This is an overall unsatisfactory result. 카지노사이트
Hanwha is currently missing first starter Smith due to an injury. According to Hanwha coach Carlos Subero, Smith is not in physical condition to throw the ball. Tomorrow (17th), the results of the hospital checkup will be reviewed and the return procedure will be followed step by step.
For this reason, depending on the situation, Nam Ji-min has to fill Smith’s vacancy a little more. However, if it collapses early like this day and loses the victory to the opponent, Hanwha will inevitably have bigger worries about managing the starting lineup.
Hanwha lost 2-14. Nam Ji-min, who gave the flow in the beginning, became a losing pitcher. The team ended the winning streak by showing a changed pitching in less than a week after the much-anticipated Young Gun. Attention is focused on what kind of pitch Nam Ji-min will show in the next pitching, leaving behind his sluggish performance.
