Kiwoom Ha Young-min wins as a starter for the first time in 9 years since 2015

Professional baseball Kiwoom Heroes defeated the LG Twins and won their first win in 5 games since the opening.

Kiwoom won 8-3 in the home game against LG in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 30th, led by starter Ha Young-min’s good pitching and Kim Hwi-jip’s hard hitting.

Kiwoom, who broke their opening four-game losing streak, earned their first valuable win of the season in front of their home fans.

Kiwoom starter Ha Young-min blocked LG’s batting lineup with 70 pitches, 2 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, and no runs in 5 innings and became the team’s first winning pitcher in the 2024 season.

Ha Young-min, who had only pitched in the bullpen until last year, caught Geoham LG in his first starting pitch in 2,031 days since the Gwangju KIA Tigers game on September 7, 2018 (a loss of 4 runs in 2 innings).

Ha Young-min’s win as a starter was 3,111 days since the match against Mokdong SK Wyverns (current SSG Landers, 6 scoreless innings) on September 23, 2015.

In particular, the starting win against LG is the first since the Mokdong game (6 innings, 1 run) on May 30, 2014, 10 years ago.

Ha Young-min played a scoreless game by aggressively throwing a variety of balls, including a fastball at a maximum speed of 147 km/h, a forkball, a slider, and a curveball.

Kiwoom Kim Hwi-jip scored 3 RBIs

The batting lineup, which had been silent, also worked hard to get its first win of the season.

Kiwoom took the lead in the second inning with a double by Choi Joo-hwan and Lee Hyeong-jong, and in the ensuing game with one out and a runner on second base, Kim Hwi-jip’s timely hit increased the score to 2-0.

Kiwoom, who continued the opportunity to advance to second and third base with Kim Jae-hyeon’s double after two outs, added one point with LG starter Lim Chan-gyu’s wild pitch from Su-jong Park’s at-bat.

Kiwoom scored one more run in the third inning with Lee Won-seok’s sacrifice fly with one out and runners on second and third bases, and with two outs and first and third bases, Kiwoom ran away with 6-0 thanks to Kim Hwi-jip’s two-run double that went over the center fielder’s height.

On this day, Kim Hwi-jip hit 2 hits in 4 at-bats and scored 3 RBIs and 1 run.

In defense, Park Soo-jong, who is taking a leap forward as Kiwoom’s new center fielder, stood out.

Park Soo-jong saved Moon Seong-joo’s hit ball that flew through the left center of the outfield with a diving catch at 0-0 with 2 outs and runners on first and second base, and in the 7th inning, with no runners on base and 1 out, he hit Moon Seong-ju’s ball deep into the fence with his quick feet and accurate hitting. I caught it with judgment.

LG chased down with Kim Hyun-soo’s 1-run home run in the 6th inning, Hong Chang-ki’s 1-run home run in the top of the 8th inning, and Park Dong-won’s 1-run home run in the 9th inning, but it had no effect on the win or loss.

Rather, Kiwoom added 2 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning with timely hitting by Song Seong-moon and Su-jong Park, putting a wedge in the win. 성인웹툰
