Pitcher Yang Hyun-jong, ace of Kia in professional baseball, did not win even after playing well in the first four games of the season.

He teamed up with new catcher Park Dong-won for his fifth first win challenge.

This is the current situation, reporter Lee Seong-hoon.


Yang Hyun-jong was traded from Kiwoom and paired with Park Dong-won, who was making his debut in the KIA, to try his fifth first win, and he struggled by throwing 42 balls in one inning.

After giving up two walks to KT batters who were persistently clinging to him, he was hit by Oh Yun-seok and Park Kyung-soo on the right time, and catcher Dong-won Park's bad throw at second base gave him three points only in the first inning.

After the 2nd time, I found stability.

He dominated KT's lineup until the 6th inning and prevented additional runs, and also struck out 5 strikeouts to achieve 1,700 strikeouts for the 3rd time in his career.

In the early 7th inning, when the score was 3-3, KIA took the lead with Kim Seok-hwan's solo home run.

If it ends like this, Yang Hyun-jong will win his first win of the season in five matches.


1st place in batting average Lotte Han Dong-hee raised his batting average for the season to 0.427 by pulling 1st and 3rd consecutive hits from SK font, which had not hit a single hit against a right-handed hitter this season.


Kiwoom's leading prospect in the Rookie of the Year competition, Park Chan-hyeok, drew a solo arch on the left wall in the 3rd season before Hanwha and finished tied for second in home runs, and added one RBI in the fifth inning, leading Kiwoom's batting line, where Lee Jung-hoo suffered from a cold.
