KT Wiz’s Koh Young-pyo took the mound as a starting pitcher in an away game against the Doosan Bears held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 6th and recorded 6 hits, 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 7 innings.

It was a Doosan lineup that scored 7 points in the game on the 5th, the day before, but it was not easy to attack against Koh Young-pyo. Koh Young-pyo continued his clean pitching until the 7th inning.

He got one out in the bottom of the first inning and allowed batter Kim Jae-ho to get his first hit, but then Jose Rojas and Kim Jae-hwan returned with an outfield fly and strikeout, respectively. In the second inning, after allowing Yang Seok-hwan to hit a double, Ko Young-pyo escaped the crisis on his own by striking out consecutive knockouts and using his main weapon, the changeup, perfectly.

In the third inning, he allowed an infield hit to Soo-bin Jeong after one out. Sue-bin, who is so fast, quickly entered first base while shortstop Kim Sang-soo fumbled the ball once. After that, Su-bin succeeded in stealing second base. However, Koh Young-pyo caught an infield fly in the game against Kim Jae-ho, and Rojas also did not concede as he withdrew with a ground ball to first base.

In the 4th inning, Ko Young-pyo, who had a tripartite withdrawal from the center batting line leading up to Kim Jae-hwan, Kim In-tae and Yang Seok-hwan, allowed lead hitter Kang Seung-ho to hit and steal in the 5th inning, but again passed it without conceding a run. He was perfect crisis management.

The first run came in the 6th inning. He allowed a double to Rojas, and he caught it well until two outs, but he gave up a point with a wild pitch. It was a goal that KT was chasing 2-1 in a situation where KT was leading 2-0. However, this time too, Ko Young-pyo finished the inning without conceding any more runs.

Koh Young-pyo, who even managed the number of pitches, was on the mound in the 7th inning. He faced a crisis when the number of pitches exceeded 90. He gave up a walk after a close battle with Kang Seung-ho that went as far as 9 pitches, and after 2 outs, Heo Gyeong-min hit again. Coach Lee Kang-cheol went up to the mound and asked Koh Young-pyo about his intentions, but Ko Young-pyo showed a willingness to keep throwing and ended up treating Su-bin with a fly to left field, ending the 7th inning and withdrawing with the team leading 3-1.

As KT kept the lead until the end, Ko Young-pyo became the winning pitcher. 10 wins (5 losses) in the season. From the 2022 season, he stepped on the double-digit victory notice for three consecutive years. At the same time, he showed off a great pace with QS in the last 10 consecutive games and QS+ in 5 consecutive games. QS+ was earned evenly against leading LG, low-ranking Kiwoom, and mid-ranking teams.

The last time Koh Young-pyo failed to fill 6 innings was against KIA on May 30 (2 innings, 3 runs, 2 earned). At the time, he came down the mound early due to back pain. In the 20 games he has pitched this season, he has broken down by more than 5 runs only twice, and his QS is a whopping 16 times. This is the highest number in the league.

Ko Young-pyo, who continues to pitch like the textbook of ‘Ace’, is currently the best paced pitcher in the entire league. Looking at his recent performance alone, he is more than Eric Peddie (NC), who was considered the ‘one-top’. It is no exaggeration to say that Koh Young-pyo is leading the rise of KT, which jumped from the bottom to the center of the competition for third place.
