I did not forget the good memories I had against LG before returning. He pitched well in this mound, showing off his LG killer power. Samsung starter Choi Chae-heung is the main character.
Choi Chae-heung came out as a starter in the final match of the season against LG held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 28th and put LG’s batting lineup to rest by pitching well in 6 innings, allowing 6 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts, and 1 run (unearned). As a result, Choi Chae-heung achieved his first win of the season in his 15th appearance.
The start was refreshing. In the bottom of the first inning, LG’s table setters Hong Chang-gi and Park Hae-min were caught with a fly ball to center field and a ground ball to third base, respectively, and the inning started with a three-way throw, catching Kim Hyun-soo with a fly ball to left field after one pitch.
However, a crisis came from the second episode. In the bottom of the second inning, Oh Ji-hwan’s walk and Park Dong-won’s hit led to a crisis with two outs and runners on first and third base. However, he overcame the first crisis well by catching Lee Jae-won with a fly ball to second base.
Afterwards, Choi Chae-heung blocked well in the 3rd and 4th inning, but committed his first run in the 5th inning. After leadoff hitter Kim Ki-yeon got on base due to a throwing error by the third baseman, he allowed a hit to Seo Geon-chang, putting the team in danger with one out and runners on first and second base. He then allowed his first run with a timely hit by Ahn Ik-hoon with 1 RBI. However, there were no additional runs as Choi Seung-min and Moon Seong-ju were caught with a fly ball to left field and a ground ball to first base, respectively.
In the 6th inning, after one out, Kim Joo-seong and Jeong Joo-hyun had consecutive hits, putting the first and third bases in danger. However, Kim Ki-yeon and Lee Jae-won both struck out swings and ended the inning without allowing a run.
Afterwards, Choi Ji-gwang, Noh Geon-woo, and Kim Seo-jun all pitched well with no runs allowed in one inning, protecting Choi Chae-heung and the team’s victory. Samsung’s batting lineup also relieved Choi Chae-heung’s shoulders by scoring 11 points with 15 hits, 2 walks, and walks.
After the game ended, Choi Chae-heung expressed his apologies to the fans, saying, “I feel sorry to the fans that it took so long to get one win.”
He continued, “Even in the beginning, I had a strong thought, ‘I can do it next time,’ but when I passed number 10, I was disappointed in myself and felt sorry for the team. Fortunately, I was able to get my first win in this appearance.” He expressed his feelings.토토사이트
Including this appearance, against LG, Choi Chae-heung showed off the power of LG’s killer by allowing 1 run (non-earned) in 11.1 innings and recording an ERA of 0. Regarding the strength of LG’s opponent, he said, “The power analysis team prepared well. In fact, I went into the game with the mindset that ‘there is no place to go down’, but it led to a good pitch (against LG), so I was very surprised even to myself.” .
Choi Chae-heung appeared as a starter 14 times out of 15 appearances. In 14 starts, there were only 7 games in which he pitched more than 5 innings, and only 2 of them were QS. Regarding the situation where the results did not follow, Choi Chae-heung expressed his honest feelings, saying, “As I often thought, ‘Why can’t I work hard?’, my expression became increasingly hard.”
He continued, “Whenever that happened, senior (Oh) Seung-hwan and (Kang) Min-ho would often tell me, ‘You’re still doing well, so just keep doing what you used to do.’ Thanks to those words, I was able to control my mentality.”
Lastly, he said, “It was a holiday, so I was very happy that many people came with my family and that I was able to show them a good game. It took a long time to get my first win, but Thank you so much for your support. “Starting with this appearance, I will show a better performance in the remaining games,” he said, expressing his aspirations.
