SSG coach Kim Won-hyung, who met in Jamsil on the 13th, said, “Last week, all the starting pitchers except Elias were unable to complete 5 innings, so a rebound was definitely needed this week. In that respect, Kim Gwang-hyun’s good pitch yesterday was a good start to the week. Although today’s game was canceled, there are four more games to be played, including a doubleheader on Sunday. “I hope other pitchers show good performances as well,” he said, rejoicing at Ace’s rebound.
Gwang-Hyun Kim received applause from the home fans by showing off his excellent defense at the Gold Glove level along with his excellent pitching. In the top of the 6th inning, down 0-1, it was a crisis with 2 outs and 1st and 3rd bases. After inducing a ground ball that missed against his opponent, he caught it with his glove and made a dynamic running throw to get the final out count. Bae Jeong-dae attempted a head-first slide to first base, but Kim Gwang-hyun’s throw reached first base first.
Coach Kim said, “It’s a defense that can be played because it’s Kim Gwang-hyun. It was a really difficult defense. His overall movements and athleticism are very good. “He has good agility and a quick body,” he praised.
However, Kim Gwang-hyun’s defensive skills were not good from the beginning. Coach Kim, who has been watching Kim Gwang-hyun since his rookie days, said, “As far as I remember, when (Kim) Gwang-hyeon was young, he didn’t know how to make a short-distance throw. “He didn’t have the yips, but he couldn’t make short snap throws like an infielder,” he said. “Through repeated practice, he can now throw short distances well.” His defensive ability has improved and he can also actively defend bunts. He applauded, saying, “Because he has great ability, he played such a truly brilliant defense yesterday.”
Meanwhile, SSG’s 12th match of the season with Doosan, which was scheduled to be held on this day, was canceled due to rain. Coach Kim did not change the starting pitcher and announced Roenis Elias as the starting pitcher for the Doosan game on the 13th.
