At the Gobi, Yokishi’s crisis management ability stood out. In the 5th inning, Lee Hae-seung hit a double in the middle with one out, and Koo Ja-wook was induced with a ground ball to the third baseman, but third baseman Kim Hui-jip made a catch error. Yokishi, who was driven to 1st, 2nd and 3rd base, threw a 144km/h two-seam fastball and treated Pirella with a double stroke.
The 6th episode also gave me a thrill from the crisis. Yokishi contributed a walk to Lee Won-seok and a left-center hit to Kang Min-ho, and was put on 1st and 3rd base safely. Afterwards, Yokishi tied Oh Jae-il with a shortstop floating ball, and after a close battle with Lee Jae-hyun to 12 pitches, he struck out looking.
At this time, Kang Min-ho, who was on first base, succeeded in stealing second base, and the crisis continued with two outs, second and third bases, but Yoki City sealed Lee Seong-gyu with a grounder from second baseman, ending the inning.
On this day, Yokishi made use of two-seam fastballs (44), curves (28), changeups (12), and cutters (6), recording a two-seam maximum speed of 147 km/h and an average speed of 143 km/h.
After the game, Yokishi looked back on the contents of the pitch, saying, “Overall, I pitched satisfactorily. In order to use the two-seam effectively, I threw a combination of various breaking balls. In particular, the curve went well as I thought.”
Yokishi did not forget the performance of his teammates. He said, “There was a crisis situation, but thanks to the early scoring support, I was able to calmly play the game. I tried to catch the outcount as quickly as possible. Also, thanks to the good defense of the fielders, I think I passed the crisis well. In particular, Kim Hwi-jip and Kim Tae-jin’s The defense helped a lot,” he said, expressing his gratitude.
