Colorless praise from the director for “good fighting spirit”… Battered KIA Medina lost with 12 hits and 7 runs in 5 innings

KIA Tigers foreign pitcher Adonis Medina failed to re-challenge for the first win of the season.

Medina recorded 12 hits, 5 strikeouts, 3 runs and 7 runs in 5 innings in a match against Kiwoom Heroes in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 14th. Medina suffered the second loss (draw) of the season with the team’s 2-9 loss.

Medina, who became a losing pitcher after joining the KBO, recorded 4 hits (1 home run), 6 strikeouts, 5 runs and 3 runs in 6 innings against Doosan on the 9th, her first appearance after joining the KBO. On the 14th, Medina left the uniform and threw in Lim Ki-young’s uniform.

At the time of recruiting Medina in December of last year, KIA said, “It is evaluated that the sinker, which throws a fast ball exceeding 150 km per hour and a deciding ball, is powerful, and mixes and throws various pitches such as slider, changeup, and curve. In particular, the ball is evaluated as stable even at a fast speed. ” has been said.

Before the game on this day, KIA coach Kim Jong-guk also evaluated Medina, saying, “The last pitch did not follow Seung-hun, but the two-seam movement was good.”

Medina literally threw a variety of pitches, including cutter, four-seam, curveball, slider, and change-up with two-seam speed of 153 km/h, but the command was not like his heart, so he was shaken. Two balls hit his body and he faltered greatly, especially when he put runners in scoring position, conceding runs on balks. On this day, he recorded 5 hits in 13 at-bats in scoring position.

Another new foreign pitcher, Sean Anderson, recorded quality starts in all three appearances and is fighting hard with 6 runs (5 earned runs) in 21 innings in 3 games, but only 1 win and 2 losses, so he is called ‘Shawn Cry’. One of the concerns of the current KIA is that Anderson and Medina have only one win in their first five games. 토토사이트
