Ten days off, come back stronger… Kium Ace, Wizpark bad blood goodbye

After 10 days off, Ahn Woo-jin (24-KEUM Heroes) came back even stronger.

Ahn started against the KT Wiz in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on Tuesday. He had been off for 10 days since his last start against Daejeon Hanwha on March 30. As if he was fully recovered, he cooked the opposing batters with his powerful pitches.

On this day, Ahn faced a KT lineup consisting of Kim Min-hyuk (left fielder), Hwang Jae-gyun (third baseman), Moon Sang-chul (first baseman), Park Byung-ho (designated hitter), Jang Sung-woo (catcher), Lee Ho-yeon (second baseman), Bae Jeong-dae (center fielder), Ahn Chi-young (right fielder), and Jang Jun-won (shortstop).

In the top of the first inning, Kim Min-hyuk hit a single and second baseman Kim Hye-sung made an error, allowing the leadoff hitter to score. However, she struck out the next two batters, Hwang Jae-gyun and Moon Sang-chul, and then got Park Byung-ho to ground out to shortstop to end the inning.

Ahn Woo-jin gave up a single to left to Lee Ho-yeon in the bottom of the second inning, but this time he had the help of Kim Hye-sung. She chased down the ball and made a jumping catch to end the inning. The third inning ended with a triple play. In the bottom of the fourth, she gave up a double to Jang Jang-woo, but struck out Lee Ho-yeon to keep the game scoreless.

In the bottom of the fifth, with the score 5-0, the team scored its first run. One out later, Ahn Chi-young hit an infield single to shortstop. With one out, Jang Jun-won hit an RBI double to left center field to make it 5-1.

After ending the sixth inning with a triple play, Ahn Woo-jin, who pitched efficiently with 81 pitches, took the mound in the seventh inning. She gave up a leadoff single to Lee Ho-yeon, but struck out the next two batters for the final out.

Ahn’s final line was seven innings, five hits, no walks, nine strikeouts and one earned run. His four-seam fastball (46 pitches) reached up to 157 mph, while his slider (26 pitches), curve (19 pitches), and changeup (6 pitches) provided a good mix.메이저사이트

According to baseball stats site Statiz, Ahn has had the worst record at Wiz Park, KT’s home stadium, of any ballpark where he has pitched at least 10 games in his career. In 12 games (seven starts), he is 1-3 with a 4.74 ERA in 43⅔ innings. He also took the loss on March 24, allowing three runs (two earned) in five innings, but this time was different. He pitched cleanly to end the bad blood with Wizpark and help his team to a 5-2 victory.
