“I lost 4-5km in velocity” After being cut off from QS for 12 consecutive games, the national team ace was exhausted.

“The speed dropped by about 4 to 5 km.”

KT Wiz ‘Ace’ Go Young-pyo is tired.안전놀이터 The team’s worries deepen. Go Young-pyo lost two games in a row for the first time this season in September. Ko Young-pyo, who was shaken by allowing 9 hits (1 home run), 3 strikeouts, 1 walk, and 6 runs in 5 innings against Kiwoom Heroes on the 1st, gave up 10 hits (1 home run), 3 strikeouts, 1 walk, and 6 in 6 innings in his next appearance against the LG Twins on the 7th. We collapsed again due to a loss.

Go Young-pyo, who is nicknamed ‘High Quality’, is a pitcher who consistently makes quality starts (no more than 3 earned runs in 6 or more innings as a starter), which is the standard for a starting pitcher. From the Lotte Giants game on June 6 to the KIA Tigers game on August 24, he recorded QS for 12 consecutive games and QS+ (3 or fewer earned runs in 7 or more innings) for 7 consecutive games.

Go Young-pyo missed one rotation in August and took a break, but the accumulated fatigue cannot be ignored. I am worried because the results of my two appearances in September have not been good. Last year, Go Young-pyo also had the experience of performing poorly in both games he pitched in October, the last day of the regular season.

Coach Lee Kang-cheol, looking at Go Young-pyo, said, “The starting pitchers are very tired overall. William Cuevas has also fallen a little bit, and the data shows that as well. Young-pyo has dropped so clearly that it is noticeable. Go Young-pyo’s speed is around 4-5 km. “It seems like it has fallen. This happened around this time last year as well, so I hope we overcome it well,” he said.

This is not a situation where there is a clear solution. It’s been a good run so far, and I have to endure the remaining month as well. KT is currently standing at the center of a fierce battle for rankings, and it cannot be denied that the starting lineup is the driving force that allowed them to reach their current level of performance. Because they ran non-stop, the pitchers were also fatigued. Go Young-pyo is no different.

Ko Young-pyo will start against the Changwon NC Dinos on the 13th and aim for his 11th win of the season. KT stopped a losing streak by winning 3-0 against SSG the previous day, and also saved its bullpen thanks to Wes Benjamin’s perfect pitching of 8 scoreless innings. If Ko Young-pyo returns to normal condition, it will be much easier to achieve KT’s goal of becoming the second-best shooter.
