‘SV competition with Oh Seung-hwan’ KIA Jeong Hae-young “It’s an honor to compete with a senior “Check results every day”

In the professional baseball ‘2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League’ game between KIA Tigers and Samsung Lions held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the afternoon of the 8th, KIA pitcher Hae-young Jeong and catcher Tae-gun Kim were happy after winning 4-2 after a close game that lasted until the 12th inning.

Jeong Hae-young (23), the guardian of the KIA Tigers, is gradually showing improved skills over the years. In 2021, the second year of his debut, he rose to the league’s leading closing pitcher with 5 wins, 4 losses, 34 saves, and an ERA of 2.20, and also posted 32 saves in 2022.

Last year, the number dropped slightly with 23 saves, but he was able to recover his ERA (2.92) to the 2-point range again after two years.

The pace this year is amazing. He has played in 28 games as of the 12th, recording 2 wins, 1 loss, 18 saves, and an ERA of 2.22. By simple calculation, this is a pace that could exceed 34 saves in 2021.

Jeong Hae-young, who is faithfully guarding KIA’s back door, is engaged in a fierce save competition with Oh Seung-hwan. Currently, Oh Seung-hwan is in first place with 19, and Jeong Hae-young is in second place. Seung-won Moon (SSG Landers, 16 points) is chasing in third place, but Hae-young Jeong’s gaze is directed upward.

Jeong Hae-young, who met ahead of the SSG match at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 11th, said, “We have been fighting for the top 5 for the past two years, but this year, since the team is fighting for the lead, I feel the weight of finishing more.” He added, “Why are the pitchers assigned to finish? I can see why you feel pressured. Fortunately, we are still seeing good results,” he said. 카지노사이트

Haeyoung Jeong watches the results of other teams after every game. Among them, the results of Samsung, where his competitor Oh Seung-hwan belongs, are bound to be even more curious.

He said, “Honestly, I watch other teams’ games every day. He smiled shyly, saying, “It’s true that I keep an eye on how many points the team finished with.” Haeyoung Jeong, who has yet to become the save king, is eager to win his first title. In particular, he is even more motivated because his opponent is Oh Seung-hwan. Jeong Hae-young said, “When I first started playing baseball in 2011, Samsung was at its peak, and senior Oh Seung-hwan was also at his peak. But now that I am competing in saves with someone like that, it feels like a dream. “I am proud to be mentioned together,” he said. Jung Hae-young, who has been performing well this season, ranked first in overall votes in the second interim tally of the Best 12 fan vote for the All-Star Game to be held next month, thanks to a lot of interest from KIA fans. There are 5 days left until fan voting ends (16th). If you get good results this week, you can take first place in the popularity poll. Jeong Hae-young said, “He wanted to participate in the All-Star Game, but he didn’t expect so many votes. (Lim) Kiyoung teased me by saying, ‘Why are you in first place?’” and “(Kim) Doyoung is more popular than me, but I still feel that the fans care about me. “We have to do better in the future,” he said with a smile. He continued, “I want to maintain first place in fan voting until the end. To do that, we need to do better this week. “As a finisher, I have to do well so the team can achieve more wins,” he said. “The team’s performance has fallen slightly recently, but I think there will come a time when it will rise again. “Thanks to your support, I will achieve even better results,” he said. 안전 슬롯사이트
