Yang Hyeon-jong, who threw 110 pitches and waved his hand, the history of 2205⅔ innings built up like this

KIA Tigers pitcher Hyeon-jong Yang ranked third in the most innings in KBO history.

Yang Hyeon-jong recorded 8 hits, 3 strikeouts, 1 walk and 1 run in 7 innings in a match against Kiwoom Heroes in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Champions Field in Gwangju on the 21st. The team lost 0-1 after a fierce battle, ending their 4-game winning streak.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who had achieved 161 personal wins until this day, failed to challenge for the second place with the most wins in his career due to silence on this day and recorded his first loss (2 wins) of the season, but threw 2205⅔ innings with 7 innings added that day.

Yang Hyeon-jong, who joined the KIA in 2007, ranked third in the most innings in his career, following former Hanwha coach Song Jin-woo (3003 innings) and former Hanwha general manager Jeong Min-cheol (2394⅔ innings). The previous 3rd place was kt coach Lee Kang-cheol (2204⅔ innings), but he surpassed the former teacher.

Yang Hyeon-jong passed the crisis with 2 out 1st and 2nd base in the 2nd inning and 1 out and 2nd base in the 3rd inning with no runs. However, after lead batter Park Chan-hyuk’s walk in the 7th inning, Kim Tae-jin’s sacrifice bunt and Lim Ji-yeol’s infield hit drove them to 1st and 3rd base. Yang Hyeon-jong gave Lee Ji-young a one-run, timely hit, giving him the first run.

It was a run that could have drained his strength, but Yang Hyeon-jong did not waver and set Kim Hui-jip back with a swing strikeout on the 6th pitch. The number of pitches has already reached 110, the most in the season. When the dugout showed a movement for replacement, Yang Hyeon-jong raised his hand to block it. And he finished the inning himself by catching Lee Jung-hoo with a ground ball to the first baseman in the first pitch. The number of pitches was 111.메이저사이트

Yang Hyeon-jong became an inning eater legend last year by recording 170 innings in 8 consecutive seasons for the first time in KBO history. If the starting pitcher fills the starting rotation 25 times a season with 6 innings each, the total is 150 innings. In this era of division of labor, which is recognized even if only the prescribed innings (144 innings) are filled, it has played a role as a pillar of the team mound by throwing 170 innings without pain.

On this day, while watching Hyeon-jong Yang shaking his hand, the relay team praised his sense of responsibility, saying, “If it were Hyeon-jong Yang, he would want to finish the inning himself.” He somehow solves the runners he sends out himself, and Yang Hyeon-jong’s efforts, which do not want to put pressure on other pitchers, are making history as the 1st most innings active and 3rd all-time.
