The match against LG on the 2nd was worthy of being an unlucky day for Ahn Woo-jin. He gave up only 3 hits and 2 walks through the 6th inning without allowing a run, but the game went to a 0-0 tie. And in the 7th inning, one intentional 4 ball went up for the first time in Ahn Woo-jin’s season performance.
It was Kiwoom’s adventurer who skipped Park Dong-won at the second and third bases and chose to play with Park Hae-min. The result was a 3 RBI triple. All three runners hit home on a ball that exceeded the height of the right fielder, and Park Hae-min advanced to third base. Kiwoom eventually lost 3-6 and fell into a 4-game losing streak.
Everything was twisted before and after the intentional fourth pitch. First of all, it was a problem from the fact that it became a situation with 2 single hits and 2nd and 3rd bases unscathed. Center fielder Lee Joo-hyung threw a throw to prevent first base runner Oh Ji-hwan from advancing to third, which led to Moon Bo-kyung advancing. Against Park Dong-Won, the ball count was 3-0, and he was driven to the batting count. The opponent he met at the bases without a hit was Park Hae-min, who had a career batting average of 0.482 (13 hits in 27 at-bats).
The ball hit by Park Hae-min could not have turned into a triple. Since he was not a long hitter, the outfielders were out in front, but the ball flew over the head of the right fielder.
Ahn Woo-jin recorded 7 wins and 6 losses in 19 games until the match against LG in Jamsil on the 2nd. The team’s record on the pitch is 10 wins, 1 draw and 8 losses. He stayed at just over 50%. He often failed to win even if he pitched well due to poor scoring support, which averaged only 3.2 points. It seems that this is the background to the adventurous number of intentional 4 pitches leading to the safe and full base as Gyeonggi-do continued scoreless on the 2nd.
It was a disappointing result for An Woo-jin and Ki-woom to score no points until the 6th inning. The LG starting pitcher on this day was Lee Jeong-yong, who changed his position to starter only in the middle of this season after pitching only as a bullpen pitcher after his professional debut. He had never pitched five innings in a start until the game on the 2nd.
However, the Kiwoom batting line gave Lee Jeong-yong a scoreless quality start for 6 innings. In the 5th inning, he had a chance to second base safely, but he could not save it.
On the other hand, An Woo-jin’s last intentional 4 pitches were also against LG. On August 27 last year, a deliberate 4-pitch operation came out to overcome the crisis with 2 out and 2 base in the 8th inning against LG in Jamsil. Like this time, it was An Woo-jin’s first intentional 4 pitches in the 2022 season. However, this time the operation was successful. Ahn Woo-jin sent Yoo Gang-nam into a strike-out, not-out wide pitch and was driven to the bases with 2nd out, but in a match with Park Hae-min, he induced a fly ball from center fielder.
