Kiwoom defeated Samsung two days in a row크크크벳. Foreign pitcher Ariel Hurado (27) stood at the forefront. He neutralized the lion’s claws through skillful pitching. Naturally, he also won.
Kiwoom won 4-1 through Hurado’s Quality Start Plus (QS+) fantasy throw and Kim Hye-sung’s two-run gun in the second game of the 2023 KBO League regular season against Samsung at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 3rd.
On this day, Hurado became the winning pitcher by making a quality start plus (QS+) pitch with 6 hits, 6 strikeouts, and 1 run in 8 innings. This is the 3rd win (3 losses) of the season. The average ERA was also lowered to 2.70.
He also succeeded in digesting his personal most innings. The previous record was 6.1 innings. I was blown away by this day. He threw a fastball with a maximum speed of 151 km/h, and the two-seam also reached a maximum speed of 149 km/h.
He also had good breaking pitches. Cutter-change-up-slider was added to control the Samsung lineup. In particular, it is not an exaggeration to say that the changeup danced.
Other line support was also assured. From the first inning, Kim Hye-seong helped Hurado with a two-run gun, and at the beginning of the second inning, Lee Jung-hoo hit a big, timely double to make it 3-0. Lee Won-seok’s timely hit in the top of the 6th inning made it 4-1.
After the game, Hurado said, “We prepared hard for the team to win today as well as yesterday. Since the two-seam and sinker control well, other breaking balls were also effective.”
“I pitched while maintaining my own rhythm and pace until the 8th inning. He tried to induce a lot of ground balls, and the fielders’ defensive support was also a big help. He will prepare well for the next match.
