Kim Gwang-hyun, 33, once again set a stepping stone for the St. Louis Cardinals victory. When he starts, the team win rate is ‘100%’.
Kim Kwang-hyun scored 5 innings, 7 hits, 4 strikeouts and 1 run in the MLB home game against the Philadelphia Phillies at the Bush Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri on April 30 (Korean time).
At the end of the 5th inning, which was 0-1 behind, pinch-hit Matt Carpenter’s 3-point home run broke Kim Kwang-hyun’s requirement for a winning pitcher, but the bullpen allowed a tie in the first 7th inning, delaying the second win of the season to the next chance.
However, at the end of the 10th inning, St. Louis won a 4-3 victory with the ending blow of David Hale, a former Hanwha Eagles pitcher. St. Louis, who was able to finish four straight matches against Philadelphia with a loose series, was able to win by hitting only four hits with Kim Kwang-hyun’s endurance. With 2 wins (2 losses) in this 4 straight match, he recorded 13 wins and 12 losses, ascending to the 2nd place in the western division of the National League. At least so far, this season, Kim Gwang-hyun is like a blue bird calling for victory. St. Louis did not miss the victory in the three appearances of Kim Kwang-hyun this year. In particular, it is worthwhile to change the flow. In the game just before Kim Gwang-hyun’s start, the team lost every time.
It was a big task given to Kim Kwang-hyun to end three consecutive defeats against Philadelphia on April 18 and the Cincinnati Reds on the 24th. And he did his part and saved St. Louis.
St. Louis was pushed back to Philadelphia to 3-4 in their season, with Kim Gwang-hyun contributing to their 2 wins. The other ships that had been stagnant also increased their firepower the day Kim Gwang-hyun reached the mound.
Last year, Kim Gwang-hyun’s starting game win rate was high. St. Louis recorded 6 wins and 2 losses in 8 games played by Kim Gwang-hyun last year, with a win rate of 75%. In the game where Kim Kwang-hyun did not start, there were more defeats (26) than victory (24).
The postseason was no different, and the only victory St.Louis had was the first leg of the wildcard series, starting with Kim Kwang-hyun. As a St. Louis fan, it is Kim Gwang-hyun’s appearance in’Believe and See’ with a comfortable mind.
