KT Go Young-pyo Allowed 6 Runs in 5 Innings... Quality Start Suspended for 12 Consecutive Games
Ko Young-pyo (31), who led KT Wiz's upward trend with the league's best innings pitching ability, collapsed.
Go Young-pyo appeared as a starting pitcher in the visiting game against Kiwoom Heroes held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 1st and performed poorly, allowing 9 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, and 6 runs in 5 innings. 먹튀검증
Ko Young-pyo, who failed to complete 5 innings in the game against KIA Tigers on May 30 by allowing 4 hits and 3 runs (2 earned runs) in 2 innings, transformed into an unstoppable player in June.
From the Lotte Giants game on June 6th to the KIA Tigers game on the 24th of last month, he had 12 consecutive quality starts (within 3 earned runs in 6 or more innings as a starter).
Of the 12 games, 10 were quality starts plus (within 3 earned runs over 7 innings as a starter).
However, Go Young-pyo had a hard time against Kiwoom’s batting lineup.
Starting in the first inning, Kim Tae-jin and Song Seong-moon had hits and two runners were sent out, and Lee Joo-hyeong was allowed a two-run triple to get off to an uneasy start.
In the 2nd inning with 2 outs and runners on 1st and 2nd bases, Kim Hye-seong's hit hit 2nd base runner Lim Byeong-wook and he was caught at home and barely escaped the risk of allowing a run, but he was hit again by a concentrated hit in the 3rd inning.
After one out, a single to Song Seong-moon and a double to Lee Joo-hyung made second and third bases with one out, and then gave up a sacrifice fly to Kim Hwi-jip, allowing the third run.
Soon after, he allowed a walk to Hyeong-jong Lee, showing his shakiness, and then hit a three-run home run from Byeong-wook Lim.
He threw a change-up, the 'report of imputation' that created the current Go Young-pyo, but Lim Byeong-wook scooped up the low ball towards his body as if he had been waiting and passed it over the right wall.
This is the moment that Ko Young-pyo's streak of 12 consecutive quality starts came to an end as he recorded his 6th earned run.
In the 4th and 5th innings, Ko Young-pyo returned to his original form by easily leading Kiwoom's lineup with 5 ground balls and 1 catcher's fly ball.
However, having already given up too many points, he handed the mound over to Lee Sang-dong at the start of the 6th inning when the game was tied 1-6.
