Kiwoom Heroes pitcher Eric Yokishi (34) gave up 8 runs and gave up early in 3 innings.
Yokishi started the away game against the KIA Tigers at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 19th, but collapsed with 9 hits and 8 runs in the first inning only.
In the end, Yokishi, who was sluggish with 12 hits and 8 runs in 3 innings, could not get on the mound in the 4th inning. The number of pitches reached 87.
It was a big deal that I gave up 8 runs in the first inning alone. In the 2nd and 3rd innings, they passed the crisis well with no runs, but in the 1st inning, they collapsed without any excuse.
Yokishi gave up five hits in a row, starting with the lead batter. I didn’t catch a single outcount in the process. In the end, Yokishi, who gave up a total of 9 hits, allowed 8 runs without a single home run.
Overall, there were many mistakes. His two-seam, his main weapon, did not fall low, and the ball was centered in the middle. The KIA line did not miss this.
On the other hand, Yokishi strongly appealed to referee Lee Gye-seong after he went to the mound in the second inning.
An official from Kiwoom said, “Yokishi asked the referee for a ball so that he could practice pitching during the karate shift before the start of the second inning, but the referee did not give it right away. In response, he appealed this part when the referee told him to start the inning quickly in a situation where the ball was handed over late and he could not practice pitching enough.”
Yokishi struck out Hwang Dae-in, the lead batter in the second inning, and struck out the first of the day. He caught up to Socrates on a grounder at second base to create a two-runner-less situation, but faltered again.
He gave up a straight walk to Lee Woo-sung, a left-handed hit to Kim Ho-ryeong, and a walk to Han Seung-taek, facing a crisis with two outs loaded. However, he struck out Ryu Ji-hyeok after 4 pitches and finished the inning safely.안전놀이터
The third inning ended in just 13 pitches. In a situation where there was no runner in the first run, he gave Kim Sun-bin a heavy hit and Choi Hyung-woo a left-middle hit, but Hwang Dae-in caught a double play and came down the mound.
Yokishi threw a total of 87 pitches that day, centering on two-seam (36 pitches) and curveball (28 pitches), mixed with a changeup (17 pitches) and slider (6 pitches). The highest two-seam speed limit was 144 km/h.
Yokishi is a pitcher with 9 wins (3 losses) against KIA. He has done well with an earned run average of 2 in the KBO League over his last 4 years. He was sluggish on the 19th.
Kiwoom is leading 1-8 so far in the 4th inning. Following Yokishi, Ha Young-min is in the relief mound. firstname.lastname@example.org
