‘Defeat-lose-lose’ KIA, complete defeat in foreign selection… Only a sigh from the fans who sold out Jamsil

 The KIA Tigers helplessly fell into a 4-game losing streak.

KIA lost 1-5 in the match against Doosan Bears in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 13th. Following the 1-6 loss in the first game of the series on the 12th, it is a complete loss for two consecutive games. 7th place KIA confirmed the losing series to Doosan and stayed with a season record of 14 wins and 16 losses.

In terms of the weight of the mound, KIA had to have the upper hand. KIA put foreign pitcher Adonis Medina on the starting mound. Medina has been uneasy with 1 win, 4 losses, 26 innings, and an ERA of 6.92 in 5 games this season, but on the 26th of last month, he won his first win of the season against the NC Dinos with 8 scoreless innings. KIA coach Kim Jong-guk predicted that even if Medina blocked only 3 runs in 6 innings, it would be possible to play a game with a certain amount of calculation.

However, Medina did not live up to expectations. He allowed only 5 runs (2 earned runs) with 102 pitches, 5 hits (1 home run), 3 walks, 6 strikeouts, and 6 strikeouts in 6⅔ innings. He did not receive any defensive help, but Medina’s ball itself was not powerful enough to overcome Doosan’s lineup.

Medina tried to overwhelm Doosan’s lineup by pitching mainly with changing pitches such as curve (37 pitches), changeup (17 pitches), and slider (16 pitches). The fastball (13 pitches) was rarely used because it did not work, and the sinker (19 pitches), a modified fastball, was hardly used after the first inning. The strategy of holding out, which was possible with a breaking ball, failed when Yang Eui-ji was hit with a left-handed two-run gun at the end of the 5th inning, trailing 0-3.토토사이트

The other line continued the frustrating attack. Doosan substitute starting pitcher Choi Seung-yong could hardly be attacked. Choi Seung-yong threw 80 pitches in 6 innings, giving up 5 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 1 run. In the top of the 6th inning, trailing 0-5, leading hitter Kim Seon-bin got on base with a left-handed hit, and Choi Hyung-woo’s double at the right time in the middle of the month gave Choi Seung-yong a run, which was a small consolation.

KIA fans showed their passion by filling the stands in Jamsil on the weekend. All 23,750 seats were sold at 4:28 p.m., before the game started. Selling out is a difficult record to achieve unless away fans fill the stands. KIA fans eagerly cheered for KIA to get out of the swamp of losing streak, but the anti-war drama was not written to the end.
