Ryu Hyun-jin collapsed, conceding 9 goals against Kiwoom... Most goals conceded in one game


7 consecutive hits in the bottom of the 5th inning with a 4-0 lead... First win back, control suddenly dropped... Kiwoom sheds tears over 'first pitch striking operation'

‘The Return of the Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (37, Hanwha Eagles) had the worst nightmare.

Ryu Hyun-jin started the 2024 professional baseball visiting game against the Kiwoom Heroes held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 5th and performed poorly, allowing 9 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, and 9 runs (9 earned runs) in 4⅓ innings, becoming the losing pitcher. 온라인카지노

This is the first time since his professional debut that Ryu Hyun-jin has allowed 9 runs in one game.

The previous record for most runs and earned runs was 8 in a game against the Samsung Lions on July 18, 2012.

Ryu Hyun-jin pitched without giving up until the 4th inning, but collapsed in the 5th inning when his stamina was low, recording 7 consecutive hits.

Due to the worst pitching, Ryu Hyun-jin's first win since returning to the KBO League and his 99th career win were all blown away.

Hanwha lost 7-11, and Ryu Hyun-jin's season ERA soared from 3.72 to a whopping 8.36.

He threw 81 balls that day, and the highest fastball speed was 147 km/h and the lowest speed was 140 km/h.

The start wasn't bad.

Ryu Hyun-jin gave up a heavy hit to leadoff hitter Lee Joo-hyung in the top of the first inning, but escaped the crisis by striking out Ronnie Dawson and hitting both Kim Hye-seong and Choi Joo-hwan.

In the top of the second inning, he walked Hyeong-jong Lee with one out and then led Song Seong-moon into a double play with second baseman, shortstop, and first baseman, continuing the scoreless streak.

Hanwha scored a run in the top of the third inning, and Ryu Hyun-jin, who received support from the batting line, forced Kiwoom's batting line into a three-way retirement in the bottom of the third inning.

Hanwha's batting lineup exploded in the top of the 4th inning, scoring 3 runs and widening the lead to 4-0.

Ryu Hyun-jin continued the game smoothly.

In the bottom of the 4th inning, he struck out leadoff hitter Dawson and then blocked Kim Hye-seong and Choi Joo-hwan with fly balls.

The problem was the defense in the bottom of the 5th inning.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who threw 59 pitches until the fourth inning, revealed a physical problem.

His velocity did not drop, but his control was shaken.

Ryu Hyun-jin gave up a left-field hit to leadoff hitter Kim Hwi-jip and a straight walk to follow-up hitter Lee Hyeong-jong.

They were all fast balls in the 140 km range, but they ignored the strike zone.

It was an unusual omen.

Ryu Hyun-jin recorded his first out by catching Song Seong-moon with a fly ball to right field with first and second base out and no outs, but a terrible nightmare unfolded afterwards.

Most of Ryu Hyun-jin's balls were driven to the center, and Kiwoom batters had a string of hits.

Ryu Hyun-jin got a timely hit in the left field from Kim Jae-hyun, a timely hit in the left field from Su-jong Park, a timely hit in the middle of the field from Joo-hyung Lee, a timely hit to the right field from Dawson, a timely hit to the left field from Kim Hye-seong, a timely hit to the right field from Joo-hwan Choi, and a timely hit in the middle from Hwi-jip Kim.

All six batters, from Park Soo-jong to Kim Hwi-jip, had quick wins within one or two pitches, and all resulted in hits.

An unbelievable situation unfolded as Ryu Hyun-jin's pitch control problems and Kiwoom's 'first pitch hitting strategy' intertwined.

The score of 4-0 quickly became 4-7.

The Hanwha bench, which had not anticipated Ryu Hyun-jin's sudden difficulty in controlling the ball, belatedly put Kim Seo-hyun on the mound, and as Kim Seo-hyun called home two leading runners, Ryu Hyun-jin's runs and earned runs increased to 9.

Kiwoom had eight batters record consecutive hits against Ryu Hyun-jin and Kim Seo-hyun in the bottom of the fifth inning, tying the record for the most consecutive batters in team history.

Hanwha pursued with all its firepower, but ultimately failed to turn the game over, and Ryu Hyun-jin suffered his second loss of the season.
