The pitcher with the most consecutive losses in KBO League history has changed. Shim Soo-chang (42), a commentator for MBC Sports Plus, who had held the record for 12 years, had 18 consecutive losses and fell to second place. Hanwha pitcher Jang Si-hwan (36) lost 19 consecutive losses, the most ever, sending Shim Soo-chang’s 18 consecutive losses to the dark side of history. 

Jang Si-hwan became a losing pitcher in the Gocheok Kiwoom match on the 1st, which was the opening game of the 2023 season. Jang Si-hwan, who climbed the mound at the end of the 10th inning with a tie with a score of 2-2, allowed Kim Hye-seong to hit a double on the left line after one run, then Lee Jung-hoo intentionally 4 pitches and Edison Russell’s left-handed hit led to Lee Hyung-jong with a timely left-handed hit from the 2nd base full. , and gave away points. 

With this, Jang Si-hwan set a new KBO League disgraceful record with 19 individual losses, starting with Daejeon NC on September 27, 2020. During this period, Jang Si-hwan recorded an average ERA of 6.09 in a total of 87 games (19 starts). His first 13 losses were starting losses, and after changing his position to the bullpen, he added 6 relief losses and is on a 19-game losing streak.  안전놀이터

During the 19-game losing streak, Jang Si-hwan won saves (14) and holds (10), but it is a record that has nothing to do with consecutive losses. Only a win can break his losing streak, he said. His last victory was a starter against Doosan in Daejeon on September 22, 2020 (6 innings, 1 run). His redemption made it more difficult to break the losing streak as he changed positions. 

As Jang Si-hwan accumulated a losing streak, Shim Soo-chang’s record of 18 consecutive losses was also recalled. Commissioner Shim suffered 18 consecutive losses before Daegu Samsung on August 3, 2011, his first match since being traded to Nexen (now Kiwoom) before Munhak SK on June 26, 2009, when he was a member of LG. During this period, he recorded an ERA of 6.10 in a total of 37 games (24 starts), with no wins, 18 losses and 1 hold. His losing streak was broken on August 9, 2011 against Sajik Lotte with a start in 6⅓ innings and one run.
