Kiwoom Heroes right-hander Kim Dong-kyu (19) left another regret in the Futures League.
Kim Dong-kyu started the 2023 KBO Futures League Hanwha Futures Team at Seosan Stadium on the 17th and recorded eight hits in 2.1 innings (1 homer) and nine runs with five outs and nine runs.
Kim Dong-kyu had a difficult game from the first inning. He gave up consecutive walks to leadoff batters Kim Min-ki and Lee Myung-ki and struck out Lee Sung-gon, but gave up a walk to Kim In-hwan, making the bases loaded with one out. He bowed his head after hitting a grand slam by No. 5 hitter Ha Joo-seok.
After that, the crisis continued. After a walk by Park Jung-hyun and a hit by Euro Gyeol, Ahn Jin hit an RBI left-handed hit and allowed five runs in the first inning alone. The long first inning ended only after Yoo Sang-bin and Kim Min-ki hit the batter.
The second start was good. Lee Myung-ki grounded out and Lee Sung-gon floated. However, he gave another RBI timely hit to Ha Joo-seok, who gave up a grand slam in the first inning after hitting a double by Kim In-hwan. 바카라
Kim Dong-kyu, who also took the mound in the third inning, gave up a hit to Yoo Euro-gyeol and struck out Anjin, but was hit by a triple that separated the right-center area by Yoo Sang-bin. He then gave up a walk to Kim Min-ki and a hit to Lee Myung-ki, then handed over the mound to Kim Dong-hyuk. Kim Dong-hyuk failed to prevent the two successors left behind by Kim Dong-kyu, increasing Kim Dong-kyu’s run to 9.
Kim Dong-kyu, who moved from the LG Twins to Kiwoom through a trade at the end of July, started against LG in Jamsil on August 13, his first appearance since the transfer, and was sluggish with four hits (one homer) and three walks and five runs in two innings. However, he showed a different appearance against the Changwon NC Dinos on the 6th, scoring two scoreless innings.
Kiwoom manager Hong Won-ki also said, “After the trade, he was clearly different from when he started in Jamsil and threw.” His fastball was close to 150 kilometers, and his control was good. I have confirmed the possibility,” he said, expressing expectations.
However, in the match against the Gocheok Hanwha Eagles on the 9th, he was sluggish with two hits, four walks, and five runs in 0 innings. He again lost control of his ball control. He hit a 22.50 ERA for the season and went down to the second division on the 13th. In his first appearance since going down, he was shaken and left disappointed. The poor control, which continues to be pointed out as a problem, is always coming as a regret. Kim Dong-kyu’s Futures performance went to 3 wins, 7 losses and a 6.96 ERA in 14 games.
