A luxury pitcher’s match where they patted each other’s butts and acknowledged, ‘You are the best pitcher’… A heartwarming scene that made baseball fans smile [Yu Jin-hyung’s scene 1mm]

 It was a luxury pitching game I haven’t seen in a long time. The 10,309 spectators who visited the baseball stadium were thoroughly entertained by the superb pitching match between left-handed pitchers representing the league. 

There was also a rare scene where starting pitchers from both teams met on the field during the game. In the top of the 6th inning, with 2 outs and 1.3 base on base, Gwang-Hyun Kim caught a ground ball next to pitcher Bae Jeong-Dae, went around once and threw it to first base, putting him out. 

메이저사이트Benjamin, who watched the great lake rain scene in front of the third base dugout, went up to the mound and patted Kim Gwang-hyun’s butt in amazement. Kim Gwang-hyun also patted Benjamin’s butt and encouraged each other. Since Kim Gwang-hyun had already thrown 109 balls, this inning was the last inning, and Benjamin, who knew this fact, acknowledged Kim Gwang-hyun by saying, “It was the best.”

They patted each other’s butts, encouraged each other, and applauded their great victory.

On the 12th, a match between KT Wiz and SSG Landers in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ was held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon. SSG had Kim Gwang-hyun as the starter, and KT had Benjamin on the mound. Recently, the two teams have had more losses than wins, and they desperately needed a win on this day. 

Kim Gwang-hyun had a different look in his eyes from the first episode. Kim Gwang-hyun showed off his ups and downs while pitching recently, with some saying he was on the aging curve, but this day was different. He started off well by striking out the first batter, Kim Min-hyuk, and struck out Bae Jeong-dae with one out in the top of the second inning, achieving the KBO League record of 1,700 strikeouts. This was the fourth record in history, following Song Jin-woo’s 2,048, Yang Hyeon-jong’s 1,917, and Lee Kang-cheol’s 1,751.

Gwang-Hyeon Kim, who was pitching no-hit until 2 outs in the 4th inning, allowed a hit to Jae-Gyun Hwang. However, he ended the inning by striking out Park Byeong-ho on a missed swing. Kim Gwang-hyun was doing well, but he gave up a disappointing run in the 6th inning. The problem was that with one out, Kim Min-hyuk was allowed to walk after a close game that lasted until 12 pitches. Although the number of pitches increased and he seemed exhausted, he continued to throw to end the sixth inning. However, Alford allowed a hit. In a crisis with 1 out and 1.2 bases on base, he attempted to end the game with a double play by inducing Hwang Jae-gyun to a ground ball to shortstop, but failed. Here, Byung-ho Park hit a timely hit with 1 RBI, and the balance of 0 was finally broken.

On this day, Kim Gwang-hyun pitched 109 pitches with a top speed of 149 km, allowing 4 hits, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts, and 1 run in 6 innings. He achieved his 12th quality start of the season (6 or more innings as a starter, 3 earned runs or less), but suffered his 7th loss (7 wins) of the season without receiving any scoring support from the batting line.

The reason Kim Gwang-hyun became a losing pitcher even though he pitched well is because Benjamin was on top of Kim Gwang-hyun who was running. Today was Benjamin’s so-called scratch day. His velocity was better than usual, and the cutter he used as the deciding ball was sharp. He gained advantage over the ball count with a fastball and slider, and then stole the batter’s timing with a cutter. He continued his perfect streak until the 7th inning with 2 outs, but Choi Jeong broke his record. Benjamin could have been mentally shaken when Choi Jeong hit a double to left field, but he didn’t care and blocked SSG’s strong lineup with no runs until the 8th inning.

He threw a total of 103 balls and achieved his 15th win (5 losses) of the season with 8 innings, 1 hit, no walks, 8 strikeouts, and no runs. 

Gwang-Hyun Kim and Benjamin, although opposing pitchers, patted each other’s buttocks for their perfect pitches, acknowledging and encouraging each other, which made baseball fans happy. The luxury pitching match between left-handed pitchers representing the league provided a heart-warming spectacle to fans.
