‘5.1 innings, 1 run’ Anderson, “The team won, but personally…”

The KIA Tigers 3 vs. won with 1 As a result, KIA succeeded in winning two consecutive victories in the demonstration game, while LG’s winning streak stopped at ‘3’.

The protagonist of the victory was KIA starter메이저놀이터 Anderson. Anderson pitched 5.1 innings with 3 hits, 3 walks, 1 strikeout and 1 run (1 earned run), putting the LG batters to rest. On the 15th, he showed much better pitching than the Gocheok Kiwoom match (3.2 innings, 2 runs).

Anderson, who had a fresh start with a tripartite withdrawal in the first episode, brought himself into a crisis situation in the second episode. After the first out, he made Moon Bo-gyeong (walk) and Park Dong-won (hit) on base and made the first and third bases. To make matters worse, he committed a wild game and conceded points meaninglessly, and his pace was likely to be shaken.

However, Anderson immediately regained his composure, and finished the inning with no additional runs by hitting Seo Geon-chang (second baseman grounder) and Kim Min-seong (shortstop fly ball).

Anderson, who allowed Oh Ji-hwan to walk in the sixth inning with one out, was replaced by Lee Jun-young and completed his duties as a starter. Lee Joon-yeong caught both Moon Bo-kyung and Park Dong-won with floating balls in left field, and Anderson’s successor became the last baseman.

Afterwards, Kim Ki-hoon, Kim Dae-yu, and Choi Ji-min all pitched 1 scoreless inning to protect Anderson’s victory.

After the game, Anderson evaluated his pitching, saying, “The result was good, and I’m happy the team won. But personally, I didn’t like the fact that I allowed three walks.”

Then, he said, “I will write down in the wrong answer note the good fastball control, including allowing 3 walks, and the bad location of the changeup, and I will try for the next appearance.”

Finally, he said to the fans, “I sincerely thank the fans who came to the stadium and cheered for me even though it was a daytime game on Monday. I look forward to meeting the fans at the baseball field during the season by filling in the missing parts for the rest of the season.”

KIA coach Kim Jong-guk also said, “Anderson showed stable pitching. In the last appearance (against Gocheok Kiwoom), as the number of pitches increased, there was a part where his pitching was somewhat shaken, but this time he showed an improved appearance. In the next appearance, we plan to increase the number of pitches a little more.” He looked satisfied.

Anderson is expected to make one more mound in the exhibition game. Meanwhile, KIA will play the second round of the demonstration game against LG at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju today.
