9 game ERA ‘0.00’, why did the perfect Park Sang-won collapse?


Park Sang-won (29), the finishing pitcher for the Hanwha Eagles, recorded no loss (one run) in 9 consecutive games from the Kiwoom Heroes game on June 17th to the LG Twins game on July 12th. He pitched 10⅔ innings in the last 9 games of the first half, posting 1 win and 4 saves and taking an earned run average of ‘0’.메이저사이트

However, on July 22, it collapsed in the NC Dinos match. In the top of the 8th inning, when the score was 4-4, he took the mound from 2nd out and 1st base and gave up a walk and an infield hit. He was driven from the bases loaded crisis, but passed it with no runs.

In the top of the ninth, the worst was waiting. Son Ah-seop and Park Gun-woo hit and continued with 2nd, 1st and 3rd bases. NC foreign hitter Jason Martin allowed a 3-run home run. It happened in the bottom of the 8th inning when Hanhwa scored 1 run and led 5-4. Victory flew away with one out count left.

I couldn’t fight well throughout the season, but it was very disappointing.

Park Sang-won took the mound to the All-Star Game on the 15th and lightly blocked one inning with no runs. He returned three batters to seven pitches. It must have been less tense than regular season games. In fact, it was the first NC appearance in 10 days after the finish against LG on July 12th.

Park Sang-won threw a forkball to Martin and hit a home run, his 40th pitch. He had the most pitches in a single game this season. The 37 he recorded against SSG Landers on May 14 was the most pitched before.

Looking back on the game the day before on the 23rd, manager Choi Won-ho explained, “I am the finishing pitcher, but it was difficult to change in the middle of an inning.

Director Choi’s theory is not to replace a relief pitcher in the middle of an inning unless there are special circumstances. However, it was difficult for him to predict variables. The forkball thrown by Park Sang-won fell less, and Martin did not miss it and connected it to a home run.
