I came back after a honeymoon break, but I can’t laugh.
Choi Won-tae of the Kiwoom Heroes changed completely after Daegu Samsung Lions 4 innings, 11 hits (2 homers) and 10 runs (9 earned) on May 4th. He set a record for eight consecutive quality starts (less than 3 earned runs in 6 starting innings) and joined the ranks of Kiwoom’s native aces along with An Woo-jin.
Kiwoom director Hong Won-ki also said,토토사이트 “Choi Won-tae plays an ace-level role that is as good as Ahn Woo-jin.” Choi Won-tae also said, “Everything is going well with me. He created a routine while talking with the pitching coach, and he also gets along well with (Lee) Ji-young. He’s helping the wild beasts a lot too. He said, “I feel comfortable because the coaches say a lot of good things to me,” he laughed.
On June 20, after winning against Samsung in Daegu, Choi Won-tae went down to the 2nd team. It wasn’t because he was injured or sluggish. Coach Hong Won-ki gave rest to the starting pitchers in the starting rotation during the season. It was the same with An Woo-jin.
Choi Won-tae, who was missing from the first team entry on June 21st, returned to Gocheok SSG Landers on the 2nd.
Choi Won-tae recorded 4 hits, 5 walks, 5 strikeouts and 2 runs in 5 innings. He could be said to have been comparatively not bad, but he could not be said to be good either. He showed uneasiness in his control, taking his first five walks of the season. He couldn’t lead more innings because he had a lot of balls, and he broke the QS streak record.
After that, Choi Won-tae came out as a starter against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil on the 8th. He couldn’t even smile on this day. In fact, he pitched impeccably until the third inning. He turned a total of 9 batters in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd innings all to offense. he was perfect
However, episode 4 was a problem. He allowed the first on-base of the day to Jeong Su-bin at the bottom of the 4th inning, when the team was leading 1-0. Afterwards, Kim Jae-ho’s sacrifice bunt led to 1 out and 2 base. Rojas was treated as a ground ball to first base and made two outs, but Yang Eui-ji walked and Kim Jae-hwan allowed a ball that fit the body, causing a crisis with the second base loaded. In the end, he gave Yang Seok-hwan a push-off walk to tie the game.
The coaching staff went up to give Choi Won-tae strength, but in the end, Choi Won-tae bowed his head as Kang Seung-ho hit a grand slam home run that went over the left wall. Afterwards, the 5th and 6th innings were passed without a major crisis, but the 5 points given in the 4th were too great.
Choi Won-tae, who recorded 3 hits (1 home run), 3 walks (1 hit ball), 5 strikeouts and 5 runs in 6 innings, took his 4th loss of the season. It is the first loss in 53 days since the Gocheok Doosan match on May 16 (6.2 innings, 2 runs). The average ERA also rose to the 3-point range again.
After his return, he appeared in two games, but had an ERA of 5.73 in July. Considering that he was 2.90 in April, 3.77 in May, and 1.35 in June, it can be seen that these are high numbers.
Could his rest be poisonous? Kiwoom fans hope that Choi Won-tae’s two consecutive sluggishness is a temporary slump. Choi Won-tae is aiming for a double-digit multiplier in four years since 2019. Isn’t this also a process to go to a happy ending?
