Ryu Hyun-jin will start Game 1 of the 2024 professional baseball league against KIA at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 23rd. As it was, Ryu Hyun-jin was scheduled to take the mound in Game 2, but the order has changed, so he will play in Game 1. Hanwha’s starting pitcher in Game 2 is Jaime Barria, who has a good pace with an ERA of 1.69 in three games since joining Hanwha, expressing his willingness to take the lead by changing Ryu Hyun-jin, who has a better pace, to the starting pitcher in Game 1.

Initially, Ryu was scheduled to have a showdown with Kia’s “great pitcher” Yang Hyeon-jong on the day due to rotation. The fact that the two left-handed aces representing the Korean baseball will face off for the first time in 17 years since 2007 made fans’ hearts flutter.

However, the face-off between Ryu Hyun-jin and Yang Hyun-jong was eventually canceled as Yang Hyun-jong’s left elbow was numb while throwing the ball against LG on the 18th, and it was decided that he would take a break from rest even though no abnormalities were found in the detailed examination after coming down the mound.

It is natural for many fans to be disappointed, but there is no need to be very disappointed. Instead, you can watch the showdown between Ryu Hyun-jin and the revived KIA Kang Hae-sun.

Ryu Hyun-jin opened in February when he didn’t have enough time to build up his body properly after returning to Hanwha. As a result, he showed some ups and downs.

However, he seemed to be stabilizing with an ERA of 3.27 in May, and returned to the “Korean Monster” that everyone knew by pitching 20 innings in three games in June, giving no single point. In the game against Kiwoom, which was just before his appearance, he pitched the best of the season with eight walks, eight strikeouts and no runs in eight innings.

Even for Ryu Hyun-jin, the match against KIA’s batting line is expected to be another challenge. This is because KIA’s 2nd to 5th batters, whose momentum has risen, are quite heavy.

KIA’s batters No. 2 to No. 5, which lead to Socrates, Kim Do-young, Choi Hyung-woo and Na Sung-beom, have been on the rise recently. KIA scored a total of 30 points in four games this week, reaching an average of 7.5 points per game.

Socrates, who was once rumored to be a replacement due to his poor early performance, survived perfectly in June, wielding a 0.344 batting average. In the match against Hanwha on the 21st, he also led the team to victory by exploding multiple home runs.

On top of that, Kim Do-young, who is in the MVP-class season this season, has seen his upward trajectory continue. He has swept three home runs and nine RBIs, including his first grand slam, in the last five games, leaving only one home run to 20-20 stolen bases in the first half of his career. Choi Hyung-woo, Kia’s “best player,” is leading the RBI with 67 RBIs even when he is over the age of 67, and Na Sung-bum, who was the sluggishest, has also rekindled his bat with a batting average of 0.342 with two homers and three RBIs in the last nine games.

This doubleheader is very important to Kia, which needs to solidify its lead, and to Hanwha, which needs to advance a bit higher. This is especially true of the importance of the first round match, which entails gaining the upper hand. Ryu Hyun-jin, who has shown the aspect of “Mr. Zero” since June, and the revived KIA lineup are under considerable pressure for this reason. Still, the fans are happy just to think that they are watching an interesting game.
