‘Kwang Hyeon-jong’ selection confrontation that took place in 8 years
Left-handed aces Kim Gwang-hyun (SSG) and Yang Hyeon-jong (KIA), who represent Korean professional baseball, will start a matchup for the first time in eight years.
SSG and KIA announced Kim Gwang-hyun and Yang Hyeon-jong, respectively, as starting pitchers for the game held at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju on the 9th. It is the first match between the two since the Gwangju match on September 26, 2015.
Last week’s spring rain made the ‘big match’ happen. KIA couldn’t play the last 4 games because of the rain. On the other hand, SSG played 3 consecutive matches with Kiwoom at Gocheok Sky Dome last weekend, so it was normally digested without cancellation. As a result, the order of appearances for Kim Gwang-hyun and Yang Hyeon-jong was decided on the same day.
Born in 1988, they are the same age and have clashed a total of six times since their first confrontation in 2007, the first year of their professional career. In the first match, May 25, 2007 (Incheon), Kim Gwang-hyun became the losing pitcher with 6 runs in 5 innings (4 earned runs), and Yang Hyeon-jong made an early start with 1 run in 1 inning. In the second confrontation, which took place on October 3 (Gwangju) of the following year, Kim Gwang-hyun gave up 2 runs in 7 innings (visa book), and Yang Hyeon-jong played the role of starting pitcher with 1 run in 5.2 innings, but could not decide the win or loss.메이저사이트
