Kiwoom Heroes foreign pitcher Ian McKinney had the worst August.

McKinney started the match against SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Incheon SSG Landers Field on the 30th and pitched 3.2 innings, 10 hits (1 home run), 3 walks (2 walks, 1 hit ball), 1 strikeout and 7 runs ( 6 ERA) and took the 8th loss of the season.먹튀검증

It wasn’t easy for McKinney from the first inning. He gave up a walk to lead hitter Choo Shin-soo and was hit by Choi Jeong, making him runners on first and third bases. He allowed Guillermo Heredia to score an RBI and a timely hit, and Park Seong-Han turned into a fly ball, but was later shaken by an additional RBI and a timely hit by Ha Jae-Hoon.

The error continued in the second inning. He got a heavy hit from lead batter Kang Min-seong. He turned Cho Hyung-woo into a floating ball to second base, but was hit by Choo Shin-soo and Choi Ji-hoon, and then gave up another run due to Ronnie Dawson’s catch error.

In the third inning, he bowed his head with a home run. He gave up consecutive hits to Heredia and Park Seong-han. I dealt with Ha Jae-hoon on the 1st and 2nd bases with no runners. He threw a 138 km fastball against Ha Jae-hoon, and he lowered his head as it led to a three-run that went over the left wall.

He also came up in the 4th inning, but could not keep the mound until the end. It was good enough to turn lead hitter Choo Shin-soo into a straight hit to third base. He gave up a walk to Choi Jeong after being hit by a triple by Choi Ji-hoon, followed by an RBI sacrifice fly to Heredia. Later, after giving up an infield hit to Park Seong-han, he passed the mound to Yang Hyun. McKinney’s point did not go up any more as Yang Hyun did not allow an additional point.

McKinney’s August was simply the worst. He appeared in six games and had a 10.59 ERA with five losses without a win. Far from winning, it was not easy for him to last 5 innings. He filled five innings in just three of six games. He has become a player who cannot expect the ability to digest the innings that can be expected as a starter.

McKinney, who joined Kiwoom in place of Eric Yokishi, was not bad with an average ERA of 3.60 in the first half with 1 win and 3 losses. However, in the second half, he is not showing any strength with an average ERA of 8.91 in 7 matches and 5 losses. In particular, there was not a single home run in the first half. However, he only allowed 9 homers in the second half. He hit a home run before the game in the second half.

Director Hong Won-ki Kiwoom, whom I recently met, said, “The ninth ball is being driven to the middle. It is not a fireballer that goes over 150km. I have to play with breaking balls such as a 140km fastball and changeup, but I am being driven to the middle.” Korean batters have also improved a lot. Power has also improved. Mistakes in the middle are turned into in-play batted balls. McKinney is having a hard time.”

Currently, Kiwoom is at the bottom of the league with 47 wins, 70 losses and 3 draws. The other line is doing its job. On this day, against the SSG mound, it resulted in 16 hits and 7 points. But the mound is the problem. In particular, the starting lineup has weakened compared to the beginning of the season. Only Ahn Woo-jin and Ariel Hurado are playing their part. Choi Won-tae has left, and Jeong Chan-heon is about to undergo surgery due to an injury. McKinney, who joined on behalf of Yokishi, is also sluggish.

McKinney had the worst August ever. Can September show a different side of me?
