“There’s no Ahn Woo-jin either.” Not a single starter has filled five innings, starting ERA 12.71…Kiwoom’s Tough Starts, Worries Grow

I expected a rough start, but the worries are growing.

Kiwoom Heroes, led by head coach Hong Won-ki, lost 2-6 in the second game of the 2024 Shinhan Bank SOL Bank KBO League against the NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park on the 27th, losing their opening three consecutive games.유흥알바

Table setter Kim Hye-sung and two hits, one RBI and one home run, and Ronnie Dawson collaborated on three hits and one run, but failed to bring a victory.

Kiwoom had its first three games. The game against the KIA Tigers in Gwangju on Tuesday was canceled due to rain. During the three games, all of its starters collapsed. No starter has filled the entire five innings.

Ariel Hurado, who started the match against KIA in Gwangju on Sunday, collapsed. Even after allowing five runs in the first inning alone, he left a regretful mark by allowing 10 hits (one homer) and two walks, one strikeout and seven runs in four innings. He lost the game.

After keeping the Kiwoom mound by pitching well with 11 wins and eight losses with a 2.65 ERA in 30 games last season, he re-signed his contract for 1.3 million dollars, up from 1 million dollars in total. He had to play as the first starter for Kiwoom this season as well, but his first start was not good. Even after he had never pitched five innings before last season, he played less than five innings for the first time since entering the KBO League.

On the 26th, Kiwoom’s new foreign pitcher Enmanuel de Heissus stepped up. Heissus signed a contract with Kiwoom for a total of $800,000, including an annual salary of $600,000 and an option of $200,000.

He had 49 wins and 45 losses with an ERA of 4.01 in 49.1 innings in 178 Minor League games. Standing 190 centimeters tall and weighing 93 kilograms, Jesus throws fast balls, sliders, curves, and changeups. He has the advantage of being able to manage the game stably with fast ball power as well as control of speed.

However, he had a bitter taste in his debut game in the KBO League. He had six hits (one homer) and five walks, striking out six and allowing five runs (four earned). He was unstable in his control and received many hits. He became a losing pitcher.

Kim Sun-ki came up on Sunday. Kim, who started in August last year, has entered the starting rotation starting this season and is facing the opening of the season.

However, Kim did not give credence to the pitcher either. He allowed two runs in the second inning and three runs in the fourth inning. He lost the game with five hits (one homer) and five outs and five runs in four innings. Sohn pitched well, allowing one run in four innings, but it was not enough to bring in the victory.

Kiwoom’s three starters so far have failed to exceed five innings. One home run was hit. The starting ERA is 12.71. Of course, it is the lowest in the league. Ahn Woo-jin left the team after joining the military, and Jung Chan-hun is also out due to injury. I expected a rough start, but I am more anxious than I thought.

Ha Young-min will start at the match against NC Dinosaurs on Tuesday. Ha has 19 experience as a starting pitcher since his professional debut. He has four wins, seven losses and a 6.62 ERA. His last start will be at the match against KIA on September 7, 2018.
