Kim Ha-sung of the San Diego Padres hit a well-matched hitter, but he was not lucky.
Kim Ha-sung started second baseman in the home game of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Ters League at the Peoria Sports Complex on the 21st (Korea time), and recorded three hits without hit.
The two previous at-bats were completely crushed by opponent starter Dustin May, who stepped down with a first baseman fly ball in the second inning and a swing strikeout in the fourth.
Kim Ha-sung missed his first home run in a trial game.
It was no blame for Kim Ha-sung. May’s ball was good. He scored one run with three 2/3 innings, six hits, two walks and seven strikeouts.
Kim Ha-sung got a chance once again in the fifth inning when the opponent shortstop Gavin Lux missed the fly ball hit by Jake Cronenworth in the first and second bases.
Against the changed pitcher left-hander Mike Kickham, he hit a good hitter flying to the left, which seemed to cross the fence, but left fielder A.J. threw himself into the fence. I caught Pollack’s glove.
Kim Ha-sung, who has been hit three times, was replaced with other players in the sixth inning ahead of defense and finished the day.
Doosan Bears coach Kim Tae-hyung spent a lot of time talking about the rotation of the starter at a press conference ahead of Jamsil kt Wiz on the 20th. It was because of a situation that has changed greatly in recent years.
Over the past few years, Doosan has boasted an unsavory starting lineup. Josh Lindblum and Seth Hurankov 스포츠중계 continued to stay in the position, and domestic pitchers such as Jang Won-joon, Lee Yong-chan, Yu Hee-gwan and Lee Young-ha also played their part.
Last year, as well, Raul Alcantara won 20 games, Choi Won-joon and Yoo Hee-kwan won 10 games in parallel, and Chris Flexen won 8 games.
But the two foreign pitchers have gone abroad, and in a moment, 28 wins have been lost. In addition, Yoo Hee-gwan and Lee Young-ha were in trouble for their own reasons. Yoo Hee-kwan joined the spring camp as the FA contract was delayed, and Lee Young-ha was excluded from Ulsan battery training recently due to muscle pain twice.
“We had a gap, but the players have been able to fill it well,” said Kim, who was self-assessing the mound situation. “We are going to confirm the remaining starting positions through the demonstration game,” he said.
Doosan coach Kim Tae-hyung, who was worried as the starting rotation was not yet properly equipped, expressed his envy by looking at a team during the interview.
Kt boasts the strongest starters among the 10 clubs. Audrey Samer Despaine and William Cuevas, who have won 25 wins last year, have remained, and 13 wins and 10 wins are still in place.
There are also strong relief forces. Sidearm Ko Young-pyo, who completed his military duty last year, will take the fifth pick. Ko Young-pyo has been struggling in recent practice games and announced that his return to the first team is imminent.
“I envy you, and it’s really good to have only five starters go back,” said Kim Tae-hyung, who recalled the great starting lineup of kt.
Then, what was the reaction of director Lee Kang-chul, who heard this story? Lee, who met with reporters after Kim, said, “No, is there a team that envy us?”“In fact, I’m not going to worry about the team if they go back,” he said, smiling at the moment when the coach, who had no trouble with the selection, was able to afford it for a while.
