The moment of a perfect game that any pitcher dreams of.
Baek Jeong-hyeon, starting pitcher for the Samsung Lions, has had that dream since he was a young boy. At his thirty-five, he made it to his threshold, only to be broken by an infield hit that grazed his glove and deflected. He was at the point where he left 5 out counts to the KBO’s first great record.
Baek Jung-hyun unfortunately missed the perfect game with 5 out counts.
Baek Jung-hyun started the first game of the season against Kiwoom at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 18th.
Baek Jeong-hyeon, who made his third start of the season, continued his perfect pitching by blocking with 80 pitches until the 7th inning and not allowing a single batter to get on base.
In the 8th inning, he struck out lead batter Lee Hyeong-jong and started off smoothly.
A situation where five outcounts were left until a record never before in KBO history. The ball hit by Russell went toward the pitcher. It grazed the glove Baek Jung-hyun held out and refracted into a 3-legged liver. Lee Jae-hyun, who was moving toward second base following the direction of the ball, was caught in reverse motion. He caught and sprayed, but was safe at first base. The moment an infield hit was recorded, both perfect and no-hit and no-run were broken. It was a hit that Lee Jae-hyun could have handled if Baek Jeong-hyun hadn’t held out his glove. 스포츠토토 Baek Jeong-hyeon finished 8 innings in 90 pitches by double-slaying Lee Ji-young, the follow-up hitter. The moment I felt even more regretful.
Could it be because of the collapse of the great record?
Baek Jeong-hyeon went down the mound after giving up the first run with consecutive long hits to leader Kim Dong-heon and Lim Byeong-wook in the ninth inning, leading 6-0.
Nevertheless, he completely dominated the game until the 8th inning. 8 innings, 3 hits, 4 walks, 6 strikeouts and 2 runs, leading to a 6-4 victory. By mixing the perfect location and slider changeup, he completely neutralized the tempo of Kiwoom hitters and won his first win of the season.Beasts also helped Baek Jung-hyeon fight hard with Lee Seong-gyu and Song Jun-seok’s defense fee.
