Kiwoom Heroes foreign pitcher Ariel Hurado collapsed on two home runs and was on the brink of defeat.
Hurado pitched as a starting pitcher in the home game against SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 30th, recording 5 hits (2 homers), 1 walk, 3 strikeouts and 4 runs in 6 innings.바카라사이트
Hurado announced a smooth start. In the first inning, Shin-Soo Choo, Joo-Hwan Choi, and Jeong Choi turned the batting line into a tripartite throw, and in the beginning of the second inning, lead batter Guillermo Heredia hit an infield hit, ending the inning with two ground balls and one fly ball without conceding a run.
Even in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th innings, Hurado’s pitching was clear. Hurado made three consecutive innings against SSG. Even in the beginning of the 6th inning, it seemed to meet the quality start (QS) requirements smoothly by catching Ahn Sang-hyun and Lee Jae-won with third baseman grounders.
But after that it was a problem. Hurado sent Choo Shin-soo for a walk in the second out. It was the first shot from both teams on the day. After the streak of 14 batters was broken, Rado allowed the first run by being hit by a superior two-run four by Choi Joo-hwan, the follow-up hitter.
Hurado’s crisis did not end here. Hurado dedicated a two-run four to Heredia after Choi Jeong’s infield hit. Like Choi Joo-hwan, he also hit a home run in the first pitch. The gap between the two teams widened to 0-4.
In the end, Hurado handed over the mound to second pitcher Kim Dong-hyuk before the start of the 7th inning. On this day, he threw 76 pitches, and the fastball (30) was the most common. Two-seam (17), cut fastball (12), curveball (10), changeup (5) and slub (2) followed. The highest speed of his fastball was 149 km / h.
Hurado showed off perfect pitching with 7 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and 2 runs (1 earned) in 8⅔ innings against the Gocheok Doosan Bears on the 24th, the previous pitching, and was also advancing with efficient pitch management on this day. However, he failed to finish the inning due to a walk, which resulted in a big inning.
With the team currently trailing 1-4 in the 8th inning, if the game ends without a tie, Hurado will suffer the 8th loss of the season.
