KIA Yang Hyeon-jong, who received help from the batting line and bullpen, meets the requirements for a total of 160 wins

KIA Tigers Yang Hyeon-jong (35) meets the requirement for a total of 160 wins.

Yang Hyeon-jong started the home game against the Samsung Lions in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 22nd and recorded 3 hits, 7 strikeouts and 1 run in 5 innings.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who had accumulated 159 wins until last season, failed to harvest victories in both appearances this season. On the 11th, against the Hanwha Eagles, he recorded 3 runs in 7 innings, and in the game against Kiwoom Heroes on the 16th, he threw 7 scoreless innings well, but did not receive support for scoring, so he could not establish a relationship with victory.

But this day was different. The KIA lineup exploded from the beginning. At the end of the first inning, Kim Sun-bin’s one RBI and timely hit and Byeon Woo-hyeok’s total base burst, and they scored 5 points.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who received strong scoring support, also responded with a good pitch. He sent runners out in all but the second inning, but minimized runs by showing off his crisis management skills. He was hit five times in a row and allowed one run, but he did not give up an extra run by beating subsequent batters.

He was assisted by the bullpen in the sixth inning. Yang Hyeon-jong, who was driven to first and second base safely by giving consecutive walks to Jose Pirella and Lee Won-seok, handed over the mound to Jeon Sang-hyun. Jeon Sang-hyun got a hit by Kang Min-ho and got the bases loaded safely, but later struck out Jae-il Oh, Jae-hyeon Lee, and Min-gyu Gong in a row and blocked it with no runs. Yang Hyeon-jong’s own score also did not go up.

If the KIA wins on this day, Yang Hyeon-jong will rise to the third 160-win height in the KBO League history, following Song Jin-woo (210 wins) and Jeong Min-cheol (161 wins). 메이저놀이터
