‘KKKKKKK’ Ahn Woo-jin’s 7⅓ innings, 110 reverse pitches, 7 fatal mistakes 

 Kiwoom Heroes An Woo-jin (24) threw 110 pitches and struggled, but failed to challenge for a 3-win season. 

Ahn Woo-jin started the match against NC Dinos in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 12th and recorded 3 runs with 6 hits, 4 walks and 7 strikeouts in 7⅓ innings. 

An Woo-jin, who was hit by Park Gun-woo in the first inning with two outs, ended the inning by striking out Jason Martin. In the second inning, he gave Park Se-hyeok a walk, but Oh Young-soo hit the ball and second baseman Kim Hye-seong showed a hobi and connected it with a double hit. 

Ahn Woo-jin, who was hit with a double by lead hitter Kim Joo-won in the third inning, with Kiwoom leading 2-0, was hit by Do Tae-hoon and Son Ah-seop in succession, allowing NC to pursue. In the 4th inning, lead batters Park Kun-woo and Martin were hit and walked, and the first and second bases were in danger, but Kim Seong-wook, Park Se-hyeok, and Oh Young-soo were all caught and no runs were allowed. 

Ahn Woo-jin, who was hit by Do Tae-hun in the 5th inning with one run, ended the inning by catching Son Ah-seop and Park Min-woo. The 6th inning was neatly organized with two strikeouts and a tripartite offense. 

Ahn Woo-jin sent lead batter Park Se-hyuk on a walk in the 7th inning. On Oh Young-soo’s sacrifice bunt, he tried to catch the runner on first base by catching the batted ball himself, but the thrower missed and made it to 1st and 2nd base safely. On 1st, 2nd and 3rd base, which led to Kim Joo-won’s sacrifice bunt, Ahn Woo-jin hit Do Tae-hun with an RBI sacrifice fly and allowed the score to tie 2-2. Son A-seop caught it with a foul fly by the third baseman and did not allow a turnaround. 

An Woo-jin allowed the score to tie, but Kiwoom took a 3-2 lead again in the 7th inning with Kim Hye-sung’s hit and Edison Russell’s 1 RBI timely hit. 카지노사이트

As Kiwoom took the lead again, An Woo-jin, who met the requirements for a winning pitcher, climbed the mound in the 8th inning. However, lead hitter Park Min-woo advanced to second base with a hit and a wild throw, and gave Park Min-woo a walk, putting the first and second bases in danger. Martin caught it with a floating ball to the left fielder, but Kwon Hee-dong, a pinch hitter, hit a RBI in a timely manner and eventually allowed the game to tie again. Ahn Woo-jin was replaced by Kim Jae-woong in the 8th inning, where the two teams faced each other 3-3, with 1 company on 1st and 2nd base, and finished the mound that day. As Kim Jae-woong finished the inning without conceding, the number of runs did not increase. However, An Woo-jin’s 3 wins of the season were canceled in this game as well. Instead, Kiwoom won a dramatic ending victory with Lim Ji-yeol’s three-run home run in the ninth inning.

Ahn Woo-jin, who recorded 110 pitches, used fastball (51 pitches) – slider (29 pitches) – curve (15 pitches) – changeup (14 pitches). His highest fastball velocity was 158 km/h. His pitching was unchangingly powerful in this game, but he was unfortunately unable to become the winning pitcher as his pitching was somewhat shaky. It was also regrettable that the throwing error came out of the game in the 7th inning.
