Kiwoom An-woo-jin ‘threw well, but…’ 2 runs in 6th inning against Lotte

She did her job as a starter, but couldn’t get the win.

Ahn Woo-jin, the homegrown ace on the mound for the Kiwoom Heroes, took the mound against the Lotte Giants at Sajik Stadium on the 21st. The KBO began the second half of its schedule on that day after the All-Star break.

After finishing the first half of the season with seven straight losses, Kiwoom put their most reliable card on the mound. Ahn Woo-jin pitched up to expectations.

He threw 89 pitches in six innings against the Lotte bats, giving up five hits (one home run), striking out six and walking two to earn a quality start (three earned runs or less in six innings of work). However, he did not get the win.스포츠토토

For Ahn and Ki, giving up a two-run homer to Jeon Jun-woo in the bottom of the third inning was particularly painful. In his second at-bat with runners on second and first, Jeon turned his bat on a three-pitch slider (145 km/h) from Ahn Woo-jin.

The ball went over the left field fence for a two-run home run (her seventh of the season). Ahn Woo-jin gave way to second pitcher Kim Jae-woong in the bottom of the sixth inning as part of an offence change. Kim retired the first batter he faced to put Lotte down 0-2.

If Lotte holds the lead and the game ends this way, Ahn will be the loser. It would also extend Kiwoom’s losing streak to eight games. Lotte replaced Charlie Barnes (5.2 scoreless innings) with Kim Sang-soo and Koo Seung-min on the mound. As the seventh inning ends, Lotte still holds a 2-0 lead over Kiwoom.
