‘The big pitcher is back’ KIA’s Yang Hyun-jong has QS in first-team return…could be KBO’s most prolific starter

Returning KIA Tigers native ace Yang Hyeon-jong (35) met the requirements for a good pitch and victory in the return match.

Yang Hyeon-jong started the home game against the Hanwha Eagles in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju on the 26th and pitched well with 5 hits, 4 strikeouts and 2 runs in 6 innings.메이저놀이터

It has been about two months since the KT Wiz match on June 24 (6 innings, 1 run free) that Yang Hyeon-jong achieved a quality start (6 innings or more and 3 earned or less).

Yang Hyeon-jong, who had been consistently in the starting rotation since the opening of the season, went down to the second group on the 16th for reorganization as the sluggishness that started in July continued until August.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who reorganized without a mound in the 2nd group, returned to the 1st group on this day after just 10 days. It was his first appearance in 11 days after the Kiwoom Heroes match on the 15th.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who did not concede with a ‘salty pitch’ that gave only one hit until the second inning, was suddenly shaken in the third inning.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who gave a hit to lead batter Lee Jin-young, was driven to second base with Lee Do-yoon’s sacrifice bunt. Afterwards, he was hit by Moon Hyun-bin for a double that went behind the center fielder and allowed the first run.

Yang Hyeon-jong caught Kim Tae-yeon with a foul fly at third base, but Noh Si-hwan hit a timely hit in the middle left and conceded an extra run. Yang Hyeon-jong, who gave 2 points, set Chae Eun-seong back with a second baseman fly and put out the urgent fire.

He faltered three times, but Yang Hyeon-jong immediately regained stability. After blocking the 4th inning with a three-way offense, he gave up one hit in the 5th inning, but kept it scoreless, and in the 6th inning, he gave up only 1 walk and completed a quality start pitching without conceding a run.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who threw 91 pitches until the 6th inning, passed the mound to Lim Ki-young in the 7th inning and completed his mission.

The batting line also presented the victory requirement by giving Yang Hyeon-jong 6 points while standing on the mound.

If Yang Hyeon-jong becomes the winning pitcher, he will win the starter in about a month after the SSG Landers match on the 6th of last month. In addition, it tied for the most starting wins in the KBO League. The record for the most wins in the category is 163 wins held by Song Jin-woo (retired).

Yang Hyeon-jong, who won 162 out of 164 wins in his career as a starter, is on the verge of achieving a great record.
