Kim Min-woo, 9 innings and 1 run ‘complete win’… Hanwha wins NC 2 in a row

He was tall, approaching 190 cm, and had an imposing physique, weighing over 100 kg. Kim Min-woo, who joined Hanwha through the 2015 Pro Baseball Draft, was selected as a reliable timber to protect the team mound. Kim Min-woo, who showed potential by throwing 70 innings in his first year of debut, fell short of his expectations with a jagged pitch. From 2020, Kim Min-woo started to attract attention once again. This year, he pitched 132.2 innings and played a pivotal role in the broken Hanwha mound. Last year, he started 28 games and recorded 14-10. Kim Min-woo was also selected for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics national team and seemed to be established as a native Hanwha ace in name and reality.

However, this season, Kim Min-woo was sluggish. In particular, he showed a disappointing appearance when he recorded an ERA of 7.77 in his four starts in August. Kim Min-woo, who was like this, showed off the best pitching of his life and shot the signal of revival. Hanwha won 10-1 with Kim Min-woo’s performance in the home match against NC held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 4th.

Baseball was a game that Kim Min-woo proved why there is a term called pitching play. Minwoo Kim conceded one point in nine innings that day. He only had three hits. While throwing 106, four four balls allowed two, but he struck out five and tied the NC line. This is the first time Kim Min-woo has won a complete fight. In the match against SK on May 31, 2019, Minwoo Kim completed a complete game with 5 hits and 2 runs in 8 innings, but the team lost and recorded a complete defeat. With a complete throw on this day, Min-woo Kim earned his 5th (10th) win of the season. His average earned run average is 5.01.

NC took the lead in this game. In the second inning, in a situation where there were no runners, Kim Min-woo gave NC Noh Jin-hyuk a solo home run. However, since then, Kim Min-woo has not been shaken by dealing with Jung Jin-ki and Park Dae-on as a hitter. Hanwha’s batting line immediately scored two points and overturned the game. Taeyeon Kim opened the door with a walk, and Eunwon Jung hit a bunt and went out. On top of that, the opponent’s error also overlapped, and Hanwha took chances at second and third bases safely. After that, Park Sang-eon and Jeong Jin-eon, who entered the plate, slashed a sacrifice fly side by side and succeeded in a 2-1 comeback.

Kim Min-woo, who took the lead, did not concede any additional runs. Since he was doubled by Jinki Jeong in the 5th inning, he pitched so well that he didn’t put a runner into the scoring zone. On the other hand, Hanwha’s batting line was fierce. After that, he added 8 points, beating NC.

In the match, Hanwha Lee Do-yoon, who played at shortstop, swung three runs in three at-bats and three RBIs, while Mike Turkman, Noh Si-hwan, and Kim In-hwan also scored RBIs side by side. As a result, Hanwha defeated NC for two days in a row and happily ran for two consecutive wins.
