It was perfect.
Kiwoom Heroes foreign pitcher Yariel Jurado’s shoulders are heavy. This is because, unlike at the start of the season, he collapsed into the starting rotation. Eric Jokishi left the team due to injury, and Choi Won-tae went to the LG Twins through a trade. Chan-Heon Jeong, who joined the rotation midway through the season, is also on the operating table due to an injury.
Here, on the 2nd, news of special ace Ahn Woo-jin’s season out was reported. Soon, Woojin Ahn will undergo reconstruction of the medial collateral ligament of his right elbow (Tommy John surgery).
In such a situation, Hurado took part in the Gocheok KT Wiz match on the 3rd. Before today’s game, Jurado had only 8 wins on the season, but his other records were good. He had 16 quality starts (3 earned runs or less in 6 innings as a starter), and his ERA was also good at 2.84. Except for April (3.14), his ERA has never exceeded the 3-point mark. He just didn’t have good luck, but he consistently pitched more than 5 innings in each game. He has never failed to complete 5 innings.
On this day, Jurado was perfect. Although Kiwoom was missing all of its core pitching players, including Lee Jeong-hoo and Ahn Woo-jin, the team was on a three-game winning streak with its current resources showing great performance.
Is it because Furado was influenced by his colleagues who were on the rise? He showed perfect pitching content from the first inning. After a three-way inning in the first inning, leadoff hitter Park Byeong-ho was hit by a fly ball to center field in the second inning. Afterwards, he gave a walk to Hwang Jae-gyun. And the walk to Hwang Jae-gyun was the only time Jurado was allowed on base that day. Starting with the strikeout of Oh Yoon-seok, the next batter behind Jae-gyun Hwang, he made the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th innings all three-out innings. After Hwang Jae-gyun walked and got on base, he hit 14 consecutive batters.
Jurado was on the mound in the 7th inning as well. After an 11-pitch game, he hit a fly ball to center field and then hit Cho Yong-ho, who was at bat in place of Alford, with a fly ball to left field.
Afterwards, Jurado handed the mound to Seok-won Yoon with 2 outs in the bottom of the 7th inning when the team was ahead 7-0. Kiwoom fans who visited Gocheok Dome gave encouraging applause to Hurado as he went down the mound.카지노
On this day, Jurado recorded a no-hitter with 6.2 innings pitched, 1 out, 8 strikeouts, and no runs. The number of pitches is 99. If the pitch count had not been closer to 100, he might have seen Hurado on the mound the next inning as well.
Thanks to Hurado’s perfect pitch, Kiwoom defeated KT 7-0 and won 4 games in a row. Although their dream of playing fall baseball is far away, they are heroic players who are trying to get out of the bottom and move up to a possible ranking.
With the win on this day, Jurado had 9 wins (8 losses), leaving only one win out of 10. He also lowered his ERA to 2.72, ranking 6th in ERA, and is on the verge of entering the top 5.
There is no Ahn Woo-jin, Yokishi, Jeong Chan-heon, or Choi Won-tae, but Kiwoom does have Hurado.
The ace in front of Furado’s name is not a waste of that title at all.
