Doosan Bears left-hander Choi Seung-yong (21) made a strong appeal for the starting ticket.
On the 19th, Choi Seung-yong took the mound in an exhibition game against the KIA Tigers held at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field and fought back. He pitched well, giving up two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out seven in 4⅓ innings.
It was a perfect pitch until the 4th inning. He made a strong start by striking out the first hitter, 40% hitter Kim Do-young, with a swing and strikeout. Lee Chang-jin and Socrates were dealt with with bats, ending the first inning neatly.
In the 2nd episode, Hwang Dae-in was caught with a floating ball by the center fielder, and he put on a striking strikeout show. Byun Woo-hyeok, Kim Ho-ryeong, Kim Kyu-seong, Joo Hyo-sang, Hong Jong-pyo, and Kim Do-young again fought back to strike out six batters in a row. He put 11 batters to sleep until 2 out in the 4th inning.
However, in the 5th inning, lead batter Byun Woo-hyeok hit a left-handed double and was shaken. He caught Kim Ho-ryeong, but Kim Gyu-seong was sent out for a walk and was beaten. Kim Ho-jun, who came to the rescue, hit and pushed away, and the third pitcher, Ko Bong-jae, gave Kim Do-young two RBIs and a timely hit, resulting in a loss. 먹튀검증
The 5th episode left much to be desired, but it was meaningful to Choi Seung-yong. Due to the injury of Dylan Pyle, the second foreign starter, the two starting positions were vacant. Young Guns are in a situation where they have to fill the position.
Director Lee emphasized again the day before, “Dylan’s departure is a big loss. Choi Seung-yong, along with Park Shin-ji and Kim Dong-ju, must fill the vacancy.” In particular, Choi Seung-yong’s efforts were desperately needed for Doosan, which lacked a left-handed selection.
Park Shin-ji, who is competing for the start, pitched effectively, blocking 4 innings the previous day with 1 run. Kim Dong-ju, who took the mound following Park Shin-ji, also gave up 1 run in 2 innings, but received a passing grade.
