“I was most happy to have prevented a one-man bases-loading crisis in the top of the 4th inning. I don’t attach much importance to my first win in my debut.”
It was his first win in two seasons of his debut, but he was indifferent. He focused on preventing a decisive crisis and keeping the team victorious.
From the beginning, reversals came and went. It was difficult to overturn the game 6-3, but the foreign starter was knocked out in 3⅓ innings.
It was a game that put a lot of pressure on the bullpen as finisher Kim Won-joong could not pitch. Lotte Giants Jin Seung-hyeon (20) saved the team.
Against the Busan Hanwha Eagles on the 13th. Jin Seung-hyeon followed Barnes to the mound and prevented the absolute crisis of a run with a full base. It also struck out Kim Tae-yeon and Roh Si-hwan, the center of Hanwha’s batting line. The deciding ball is an exquisite slider that slightly strays from the zone. On the 27th of last month, the appearance of striking out Russell against Kiwoom Heroes overlapped.
In the 6th inning, the pitch was shaken, and it was replaced at 1st and 2nd base safely, and both players stepped on the home base and Jin Seung-hyun scored 2 runs. Jin Seung-hyeon expressed regret before joy.
“It seems that I used a lot of strength at the bases loaded with 1 out, and then my stamina dropped. I had an advantage in the count… I put a lot of energy into my body as I tried to control it perfectly. It was regrettable as the ball floated.”
Jin Seung-hyun is a resource Lotte wants to develop as a starter in the long term. He went back and forth between starting and saving in the second team both last year and this year. It is also a promising pitcher as an alternative starter during the Hangzhou Asian Games, when Na Kyun-an and Park Se-woong are absent all at once. He even expressed his burning ambitions, saying, “The goal is to be selected. The day off is definitely set, so it’s good to be able to follow the routine.”
Because of this, the pace distribution that was revealed that day and the margin on the mound, which was somewhat lacking, came to him greatly. Instead, the heavy fastball and sharp slider are now at the stage where they have been verified. Catcher Yoo Kang-nam’s encouragement, ‘I like the slider, so throw it with confidence’, was also a great help.메이저사이트
The club’s YouTube Giants TV also added an explanation that image training, saying, “If I go up to full base, which course should I drop this ball on,” was a big help. Even though Yoo Kang-nam shook his head once, he pushed through with his own confidence and struck out.
On the 9th, after 2 scoreless innings against Samsung and confirming the team’s victory, he held a so-called ‘Oh Seung-hwan-Jin Gap-yong ceremony’ with Yoo Kang-nam. Jin Seung-hyun confessed his bucket list, saying, “I talked about doing his father’s ceremony as soon as it was over. I often saw Oh Seung-hwan and his father together. It was a dream since I was young.”
