바카라사이트Kiwoom Heroes ace Ahn Woo-jin, 24, has conceded four or more runs in each of his last two games. Prior to that, his most runs allowed in a game in 14 games was three, so the recent trend is cause for concern. He gave up five runs in 5.1 innings against the Gwangju KIA Tigers on 28 June and four runs in six innings against the NC Dinos in Gochuk on 4 July. On the 4th, he allowed nine hits, his most in a single game this season. His ERA, which was just 1.61, worsened to 2.24 after two games.
However, head coach Hong Won-ki Kium wrapped his ace around him. His pitching has been so good since the start of the tournament that even a slight faltering would be highlighted. “Ahn Woo-jin is a human being, too. How can he pitch seven or eight innings with one or two runs every time he goes to the mound?” “It’s not that his pitches weren’t good, but that the opposing hitters didn’t miss the balls that went into the count (strikes) and actively attacked them. Yesterday (4 April), I would like to emphasise more that she was an ace and lasted until the sixth inning.”
Ahn’s run support per nine innings this season is just 3.58, but in the last two games she has received a total of 15 runs, and the team’s victories have eased her mind a bit. In particular, on the 4th, the bats scored eight runs and the bullpen pitched three scoreless innings to secure their sixth win of the season.
“Before Ahn Woo-jin took a ten-day break (31 May-9 June), I told him, ‘If you take a break, the hitters will help you a lot,'” Hong said, adding, “That’s baseball. A lot of things happen. The last two games are part of a season. Ahn will do his best to show a different side in the next game. I have a lot of confidence that he will take care of himself after the All-Star break and continue to do well in the second half of the season.”
