SSG rookie Song Young-jin hurt director Kim Won-hyung’s head. It’s not because we’re bad, it’s because we’re good at it. He said that he would be removed from the starting rotation for the time being after the game on the 26th, but he recorded his first quality start that day.
Youngjin Song, a rookie in the 2nd round of SSG, recorded his first quality start in his debut in a game where the survival of the 1st team was at stake. On the 26th, against LG in Jamsil, he had a good fight with 5 hits, 3 walks, 3 strikeouts, and 3 runs (2 earned runs) in 6 innings, and even took his second win of the season. SSG achieved a 5-3 come-from-behind victory thanks to Song Young-jin’s good pitching and 4 points from the 5th inning with no bases loaded.
In the 1st and 3rd innings, wildfires led to runs. However, even after conceding points, he did not waver and kept his pace. He did not concede from the fourth inning. In the 4th inning, he succeeded in the first tripartite offense, and in the 5th inning, he blocked LG’s other line with a single hit after 2 outs. In the sixth inning, leading 5-3, Moon Bo-gyeong, the lead batter, got a hit, but all the next three batters were hit. In this way, Song Young-jin’s first quality start since his debut was created.
However, Song Young-jin is expected to be eliminated from the 1st team after this starting pitching, or to go out to the bullpen after completing his rest days. However, the expungement of the first team does not mean that expectations for Song Young-jin will be abandoned. Considering him as the bullpen for the first team means that he is confident in Song Young-jin’s potential. 스포츠토토
On the 26th, SSG coach Kim Won-hyeong said before the LG match, “Song Young-jin is trying to decide after watching the game today. He continues to talk with the training part. He explained, “When Park Jong-hoon returns, (Song Young-jin) has to leave the rotation at least once. Song Young-jin is still not ready to start. Even if he goes to the bullpen, he can pitch again as a starter. In the long term, I see it as a starting feeling.”
SSG has finished inside the 3-point margin in 16 of its past 19 games. As there were many close matches, it was difficult to avoid the bullpen consumption. Manager Kim Won-hyung said, “There were many tight games. We have to believe in the ability of young players.”
Song Young-jin said, “I tried to throw my ball because the LG hitters felt good at hitting. Senior Kim Min-shik’s lead was good, and senior Oh Tae-gon saved an important opportunity, leading to good results.”
Regarding the change of position, I only follow the team’s decision first. But dreams are never small. Song Young-jin said, “I want to develop the stamina to throw 7, 8, and even 9 innings instead of 6 innings in the future. I think he needs to manage the number of pitches well.”
