157km’ Pil Seung-jo, 2 consecutive games ‘anxiety’… Will the balance be restored until the opening game?

LG bullpen Jung Woo-young allowed two consecutive runs in an exhibition game. Before the start of the season, control and pitching balance must be restored. 

An exhibition match between LG and Kiwoom at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 26th. Jung Woo-young climbed the mound in the 6th inning, trailing 1-3. Since it was an exhibition game, regardless of when the setup man started, he started early to check his pitch. 

Jung Woo-young lightly treated the first batter, foreign player Russell, with a second baseman ground ball, but Lee Hyung-jong, who played for LG until last year, reached base with a hit in the infield in front of the third baseman. The ball, which bounced in front of the plate, rolled slowly toward third base, and third baseman Song Chan-eui ran out and attempted a running throw to first base, but it was safe. Then, Kim Tae-jin got a right-handed hit and was driven into a crisis with 1 company, 1st and 3rd base. 

The runner on third base scored and conceded as the first baseman grounded out Kim Gun-hee. In the second out and second base, Kim Si-ang went to base with a ball that fit his body. In the 2nd and 1st and 2nd bases, Lee Yong-gyu’s batted ball hit Jung Woo-young’s leg and was deflected toward the first baseman, ending the inning with a ground ball out by the first baseman.

1 inning, 2 hits, 1 walk, 1 run. He threw 24 pitches against six batters. 

On the 24th, in an exhibition game with KT, he showed poor control and recorded 2 hits and 1 run in 1 inning. Jung Woo-young, who took the mound in the 8th inning, had to pay the first batter, Moon Sang-cheol, to induce a floating ball, but second baseman Jung Joo-hyun missed it due to a catch error, and then, throwing it to first base in a situation already late made a throwing mistake that went far beyond the height of the first baseman. He got one out with a strikeout from second base. However, he was hit in time by rookie Son Min-seok and conceded. 

After conceding a goal, the pitch suddenly shook. Against Kang Min-seong, the first pitch almost turned into a headshot, and the second pitch deviated far outward and became a wild throw. After that, the ball deviated greatly from the strike zone in the 3rd and 4th pitches, and eventually allowed a heavy hit. He finished the inning with a shortstop grounder double hit at 1st and 1st and 2nd base, but his overall control showed severe ups and downs. 

Jung Woo-young, who returned to the team after participating in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) held at the Tokyo Dome in Japan in mid-March, took the mound for the first time in an exhibition game with KIA on the 21st, recording one inning, no hits, no walks, and no runs. He faced 3 batters and threw a total of 6 pitches, successfully inducing a pitcher’s ground ball following a fly ball in the outfield, ending one inning easily.

However, he has conceded runs one after another in the last two games, and his pitches are uneven. He is recording 3 innings, 4 hits and 2 runs (1 earned) in 3 exhibition games.

Last year, Jung Woo-young appeared in 67 games and made a big success with 2 wins, 3 losses and 35 holds with an ERA of 2.64. He won the first individual title in his debut by winning the hold with a powerful two-seam fastball of up to 157 km as his main weapon.안전놀이터 LG finisher Ko Woo-seok was unable to join the opening match due to neck muscle pain, so Pil Seung-jo and Jung Woo-young’s shoulders are heavy.
