Honey Night for Lee Do-yoon... ‘Smiling Easily’ Ryu Hyun-jin “If I Made a Mistake, I Would have Let it go”


On the 25th, a playful honey night to Lee Do-yoon, who made an apology error in the SSG match, "At the beginning of the season, I felt pressured to show something... I've put it down now."

Ryu Hyun-jin (37, Hanwha Eagles) often smiles on the mound recently.

Korean baseball fans are puzzled yet smile as he looks different from when he guarded the mound with a solemn expression before entering the United States.

In the game against SSG Landers held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 25th, Ryu Hyun-jin 'expressed his emotions' on the mound and in front of the dugout, becoming a hot topic among baseball fans. 온라인카지노

In particular, when Hanwha shortstop Lee Do-yoon handled SSG Ha Jae-hoon's ground ball in the bottom of the 6th inning, the image of Ryu Hyun-jin slightly hitting Lee Do-yoon with a 'honey chestnut' was talked about on the 26th.

At that time, Do-yoon Lee's throw deviated to the right of first baseman Chi-hong Ahn.

Ahn Chi-hong threw his body to catch the throw, then hit first base with his mitt and was out.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who met at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 26th, laughed and said, "It was an easy hit, but Do-yoon threw the ball strangely and gave me honey."

‘Ryu Hyun-jin’s Honey Night’ also included consideration for his juniors.

Ryu Hyun-jin explained, "If it had been a mistake, I wouldn't have said anything to Lee Do-yoon. In the end, he was out, so I played a prank on him."

Even in the top of the 7th inning, Ryu Hyun-jin was often caught by the broadcast camera in front of the Hanwha dugout.

When Hanwha's Choi Jae-hoon was hit by his own foul ball, Ryu Hyun-jin shouted "Hurry, hurry" as if he were rapping.

Fans also spread this image widely on the Internet.

“She was yelling at the trainer to go quickly,” Ryu Hyun-jin explained.

When Kim Tae-yeon hit a left-field solo home run in the top of the 7th inning with the game tied 1-1 with two outs and no runners on base, the broadcast camera captured Ryu Hyun-jin cheering with his left arm raised.

Ryu Hyun-jin said, "In the end, I didn't get the starting win, but Kim Tae-yeon hit a home run, giving me the 'opportunity to become a winning pitcher,'" and "I was so happy that I raised my hands and cheered."

Hanwha allowed the score to be tied in the top of the 9th inning against SSG on the 25th, and Ryu Hyun-jin was unable to secure a win despite pitching well, allowing 7 hits and 1 run in 6 innings.

However, Ryu Hyun-jin also relieved his disappointment as Hanwha scored two runs in the top of the 10th inning to win 4-2.

Ryu Hyun-jin said, "At the beginning of this season, I felt pressure to show something (since I just returned from the United States).

I've put it all down now," and added, "I don't worry too much about individual performance now.

Even if veteran hitters perform poorly at the beginning of the season, the season will continue."

“I think my personal record will improve just as my batting average recovers to 0.300 at the end,” he said.

Ryu Hyun-jin, known as ‘Korea’s best pitcher of the 21st century,’ returned to Hanwha this year after playing in the American Major League for 11 years.

As of the 25th, his records are 3 wins, 4 losses, and an ERA of 4.50.

This is a figure that does not suit Ryu Hyun-jin.

However, if you look at the detailed records, Ryu Hyun-jin's 'misfortune' is revealed.

In the FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching) category, which is calculated only by home runs, walks, and strikeouts that a pitcher can control that are unrelated to defense, Ryu Hyun-jin ranks second with 2.99, following James Nail (KIA Tigers) with 2.77.

Nail also ranks first with an ERA of 1.65.

The reason the gap between Ryu Hyun-jin's FIP and earned run average is particularly large is due to bad luck.

Ryu Hyun-jin often had the misfortune of a fielder making an error and a hit that was not a correct hit resulting in a hit.

Among the 22 pitchers who filled the required number of innings, none of them gave up a home run, and only two pitchers allowed only one home run: Kwak Bin (Doosan Bears) and Ryu Hyun-jin.

Ryu Hyun-jin is performing well in several detailed indicators, including 5th place in slugging percentage (0.322) and 7th place in OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) (0.650).

Hanwha pitching coach Gyu-jin Yoon, who played alongside Hyun-jin Ryu, said, “Hyun-jin Ryu was a pitcher who studied hard even before he entered the major leagues, but after returning from the United States, he studied even harder”

He added, “I told the pitchers on our team, ‘Hyun-jin Ryu also prepared just as hard.

“I sometimes emphasize that I do it,” he said.

Ryu Hyun-jin has taken a low-key stance, saying, “I don’t delve too deeply into the analysis of opposing hitters,” but as he re-adapts to the KBO league, his performance is showing an upward curve.

Ryu Hyun-jin's average ERA in the last three games is 1.59 (17 innings, 3 runs).

Ryu Hyun-jin said with a bright expression, “I will prepare harder.”
