‘The Return of the Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (37) failed to hunt for his first win after returning to the KBO League again.

Ryu Hyun-jin started the home opening game against KT Wiz in the 2024 Professional Baseball League held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Eagles Park on the 29th and pitched well with 8 hits, no walks, 9 strikeouts, and 2 runs (2 earned runs) in 6 innings, but did not meet the requirements for a win or loss as the batting line did not explode. .

He ended the game that day by handing the ball over to Han Seung-hyuk in the top of the 7th inning when the score was 2-2.

The number of pitches was 89, and a variety of pitches were thrown, including fastballs (43), change-ups (19), cut fastballs (17), and curves (10).

The highest speed of the fastball was 147 km, and the average speed was 144 km. His earned run average this season dropped from 4.91 to 3.72.

On this day, Ryu Hyun-jin started in a regular league home game for the first time in 4,194 days since the Nexen Heroes (now Kiwoom) game on October 4, 2012.

After completing the 2012 season, he entered the American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) through the posting system, and returned to Hanwha ahead of the 2024 season after leaving a record of 78 wins, 48 ​​losses, and an average ERA of 3.27 in 186 big league games.

Ryu Hyun-jin was the losing pitcher in the regular season opening game against the LG Twins on the 23rd, which was his first game since returning, as he gave up 6 hits, 3 walks, and 5 runs (2 earned runs) in 3⅔ innings, but he pitched satisfactorily in his second starting game. .

The first episode was a bit shaky. Perhaps because of the chilly weather, it was difficult to adjust the zero point.

After giving up a heavy hit to leadoff hitter Bae Jeong-dae, he allowed a hit to left to Mel Rojas Jr. with one out and first base.

However, Ryu Hyun-jin escaped the crisis by inducing the follow-up batter, Park Byeong-ho, into a double play between the shortstop, second baseman, and first baseman.

Hanwha’s batting line hit KT’s starting pitcher William Cuevas in the bottom of the first inning and scored 2 runs, and Ryu Hyun-jin, who gained strength from this, tied up the Kt batting line based on his unique ‘microscopic control’ from the beginning of the second inning.

Ryu Hyun-jin struck out Kang Baek-ho in the second inning by throwing a change-up that hit the outer border of the strike zone with a ball count of 1 ball and 2 strikes.

Afterwards, Hwang Jae-gyun was treated with a fly ball to right field, and Jang Seong-woo was treated with a ground ball to shortstop. Ryu Hyun-jin threw only 10 balls in the second inning.

Ryu Hyun-jin gave up a left-field hit to leadoff hitter Kim Min-hyuk in the third inning, but Kim Sang-soo had to throw out a fly ball, Bae Jeong-bae missed a swing, struck out three pitches, and Chun Seong-ho was hit by a grounder to third base, continuing his scoreless streak.

In the 4th inning, it was a three-way inning. Ryu Hyun-jin, who beat Rojas with a straight hit to first base, struck out Park Byeong-ho and Kang Baek-ho in succession.

The match against Kang Baek-ho was the highlight of the match. Ryu Hyun-jin threw a slow curve as the first pitch and caught a strike, completely breaking Kang Baek-ho’s batting rhythm.

Afterwards, he threw a high fastball and a curveball that flowed low to the outside, causing a missed swing and a strikeout. 스포츠토토
