Kim Kwang-hyun fighting back

(AP=Yonhap News) St. Louis Cardinals left-handed starter Kim Kwang-hyeon competes in the home game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the US Major League Baseball held at the St. Louis Bush Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri on the 1st (Korean time).

(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Han Nam-jik = Kim Kwang-hyeon (33, St. Louis Cardinals) laughed bitterly, saying, “I broke my personal best.”

After winning 11 matches and 68 days, Kim Gwang-hyeon just looked back at the time when the victory clock stopped and brushed off his regrets.

Kim Kwang-hyun started on the 1st (Korea time) in the home match against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2021 American professional baseball major league held at St. Louis Bush Stadium, Missouri, USA on the 1st (Korean time) and scored 3 hits in 5 innings, 3 hits, 4 hits, 1 run in 5 innings and 2 wins (5 losses) of the season. won

In the at bat, he played an active part with one hit, two RBIs and one sacrifice bunt, such as hitting a double in the finals.

St. Louis won 7-4 and went on to win 3 in a row.

Kim Gwang-hyeon won 11 games and 68 days after the Cincinnati Reds match on April 24.

In a video interview after the game, Kim Gwang-hyun said, “In the past, no matter how long it was, I would win after 6 or 7 games, but this time I broke my personal best record.” (The period of losing streak has been extended.) Today, I minimized the number of runs and focused on every hitter, but such earnestness seems to have led to luck.”

On that day, Kim Kwang-hyun filled five innings with 96 balls. To avoid conceding, I pitched carefully, so the number of pitches increased.

He said, “The fastball didn’t work well. I came down the mound early in the last pitch (4 ⅓ innings, 7 hits and 4 runs against the Pittsburgh Pirates on June 26), so I wanted to do a ‘pointless pitch’ this time.” I got a lot of balls while paying attention to the game. The control needs to be improved,” he said.

Kim Kwang-hyun said, “During batting training, I asked Wainwright, ‘When are you going to show a home run?’ I know Wainwright is good at hitting (although he only got one hit at 16 this year).” We’re playing at Coors Field. Tomorrow, I hope Wainwright hits his first home run of the season and has another greeting ceremony.”
