“It’s been a tough season” Perfectly broken and tearful Jamsil Jesus

“I can get back to my old self”

LG’s Casey Kelly fell short of becoming the first pitcher in KBO history to throw a perfect game with three outs. However, he did complete the record with a complete game shutout against 27 batters. It was a dramatic turnaround for a pitcher who was on the verge of being replaced just a month ago.

Kelly started the game against the Samsung Lions of the 2024 Shinhan Bank SOL Bank KBO League at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, and pitched nine innings of one-hit ball with no walks, four strikeouts, and no hits until the top of the ninth inning when Yoon Jung-bin singled. It was the first 27-hitter in KBO history. There have been one-hit shutouts and four-hit shutouts in KBO history, but no one has ever faced 27 batters.

In the postgame interview, he said that the fans’ support made him emotional and he showed tears in his eyes. He didn’t cry because he wanted to cry. “I felt the energy of the fans, and I was able to pitch well because of that energy, so I was moved,” he said.

“I tried to focus on one pitch at a time, one ball at a time, not thinking about getting three outs at once. In situations like this, you try to do better and it ruins your record, but I didn’t think about that. It was a simple, fast-paced game and I tried to keep that feeling, so I was more focused,” he said.

In the top of the ninth, he threw a changeup to Jung-Bin Yoon, who hit a single up the middle. Kelly said, “It was low and away. It was a good pitch and he hit it. It was one of those things that can happen. It was one of those things that can happen in a game.”

After the hit, Kelly covered his mouth with his glove, yelled out loud, and then focused on pitching. He even took the time to remove his cap to thank the LG fans who applauded him. “I thanked the fans, and it was also a tribute to Jung-bin Yoon,” Kelly laughed. When asked what he said after the hit, and if it was something he could say in front of his two children, who were listening to the interview nearby, he smiled broadly and said, “That’s hard. You know what it is,” he said with a smile.

Kelly said June 25, 2024, will be a game he will remember long after he retires. “You don’t get opportunities like this every day,” he said. “We didn’t get a hit (until the eighth inning), we didn’t give up a run, we didn’t get a walk, we didn’t get a hit by pitch. It’s something that comes along once in a while, so it’s going to be a very special memory. The Korean Series game is probably my most memorable game, but today 먹튀검증 was probably my second most memorable game.”

Of course, there was some defensive help. In the sixth inning, first baseman Austin Dean made a solid catch on a low line drive from Ahn Joo-hyung, and in the seventh, Koo Bon-hyuk made a great catch on a fly ball over Koo’s head. “I’m amazed every time I see our defense,” Kelly said, “We have one of the best defenses in the league. I’m just happy and grateful to be able to play with some of the best hitters in the game.”

This is Kelly’s second career complete game. She had one other complete game in 2020, her second year in the KBO. On Oct. 9 against Jamsil NC, she pitched nine innings with two hits, one walk, six strikeouts and no runs allowed. LG had a doubleheader against NC on Oct. 10, so they needed to conserve their bullpen. Kelly’s nine innings of relief paved the way for a doubleheader sweep on Tuesday.

He has one complete game this year. It was an eight-inning, six-run complete game. On the 13th, he went eight innings while giving up six runs against Samsung Electronics in 카지노사이트 Daegu. It was a big boost for the bullpen. LG took the three-game series against the Lotte Giants at home from April 14 to 16 after battling to stay within two runs of each other throughout the entire series. If not for Kelly’s complete game on the 13th, the two wins would not have been guaranteed.

“I think it was a game that gave me confidence that I can get back to my old self. It made me realize that I’ve been throwing that hard ball with confidence. I’m going to enjoy today, but tomorrow is a new day. I’m going to keep working hard and keep training.”
