‘Overcome crisis with curves’ Oh Won-seok “Thank you, Kim Min-sik, for feeding me honey chestnuts.”

In the game against Samsung on the 6th, he gave up 6 walks and no runs in 5 innings.

Oh Won-seok pitches 5 scoreless innings

When Oh Won-seok (23, SSG Landers) kept walking, catcher Kim Min-sik (34) fed him ‘honey chestnuts.’

Thinking back to Kim Min-sik’s ‘super save’, a shot of honey was very sweet to Oh Won-seok.

Oh Won-seok, who met after the professional baseball game against the Samsung Lions held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 6th, made a sweet gesture and smiled, saying, “Senior Kim Min-sik gave me a slap like this. I was grateful to senior Kim Min-sik today.”

Oh Won-seok gave up 6 walks and walks in 5 innings on this day, but allowed only 1 hit and finished the mound without allowing any runs.

As the team won 4-0, Oh Won-seok earned his 5th win (3 losses) of the season.

The game was decided in the top of the fourth inning.

In the top of the 4th inning, with SSG leading 3-0, Oh Won-seok gave up 3 walks and walked, putting the bases loaded with 1 out. 스포츠 토토사이트

Samsung appointed Kang Min-ho, who had been benched, as a pinch hitter.

Before this day, Kang Min-ho was very strong against Oh Won-seok, with 8 hits in 20 at-bats (batting average 0.400) and 3 home runs.

Oh Won-seok recalled, “I threw the mitt after looking at senior Kim Min-sik’s mitt with the feeling of ‘I don’t know.’”

However, there were also critical moments when the ball did not reach the mitt.

With a ball count of 1 ball and 2 strikes, the 4th fastball thrown flew high outside.

Catcher Kim Min-sik flew his body like a ‘soccer goalkeeper’ and caught the ball.

If this ball had been missed, a point would have been conceded, but Kim Min-sik saved Oh Won-seok with a super save.

Oh Won-seok, who took a breather, threw a 119 km/h curveball in 3 balls and 2 strikes and struck out Kang Min-ho while looking.

Oh Won-seok said with a grin, “I was so tired that I threw a wild ball. I was very embarrassed, but senior Kim Min-sik caught it well,” and added, “Senior Kim Min-sik didn’t scold me too much, but gave me a sweet chestnut.”

The ball that Oh Won-seok chose as his main weapon that day was a curveball.

The scene in which he struck out Samsung’s No. 4 Park Byeong-ho with a 116 km/h curveball in the 3rd inning with 2 outs and runners on 1st and 2nd base was also impressive.

Oh Won-seok threw 95 balls in the game against Samsung that day, of which 41 (43.2%) were curves. He pitched primarily on fastballs (42) and curveballs, mixing in sliders (6) and forkballs (6).

Oh Won-seok’s curveball usage rate this season is 12.2%.

The extreme change in ball combination, which raised the curve usage rate by 31% compared to usual, threw Samsung’s batting lineup into confusion.

Oh Won-seok said, “I’ve been receiving advice for a long time, saying, ‘It would be a good idea to increase your curveball usage rate,’ but when I got on the mound, I started using the slider more and more.” “I think it’s a good fit,” he said.

Oh Won-seok, who had been sluggish at the beginning of the season, succeeded in rebounding with a win on May 31st against Kiwoom Heroes (3 hits and 2 runs in 6 innings).

This is the first time that Oh Won-seok has won two consecutive games as a starter.

He said, “Recently, as I have overcome one hurdle after another, I am gaining confidence.”

I want to reduce walks, but I don’t plan on being intimidated by allowing a lot of walks.

Oh Won-seok said, “It is the starting pitcher’s job to minimize runs,” and pledged, “Because I am not a pitcher with good pitch control… Even if a game similar to today comes up, I will not be intimidated and will help the team win by minimizing runs.” 성인웹툰
