SSG Landers submarine pitcher Park Jong-hoon is back in action.
SSG won the 10th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Hanwha Eagles 6-3 on April 29 at SSG Landers Field in Incheon. The offense scored five runs in the bottom of the second inning to take the lead, but the star of the game was starting pitcher Jong-hoon Park.
Jong-hoon took the mound for the first time in 24 days after his last start against the KIA Tigers (a 5-run loss in 2⅔ innings) and pitched six innings of three-hit, seven-strikeout ball to earn the win. He didn’t walk a batter or hit a batter.
She struck out Lee Jin-young in the first, Jung Eun-won in the second, and Noh Si-hwan in the third. In the second inning, he got Chae Eun-sung to fly out to first base, Choi Jae-hoon to ground out to first base, and Kim In-hwan to fly out to left field.
After retiring the next three batters on an infield single, a grounder, and an outfield fly ball, he struck out the side in the third. In the fourth inning, she gave up her first hit and a stolen base, but got Noh Si-hwan to fly out to second base and Chae Eun-sung to strike out the side.
Park Jong-hoon pitched a no-hitter through the sixth 토토사이트 inning, allowing three hits and striking out seven. He threw a total of 92 pitches before handing the mound over to Moon Seung-won in the seventh inning with his team leading 5-0.
Park Jong-hoon pitched a no-hitter on the day. The last time he pitched a no-hitter was on September 22, 2022, against Hanwha in Moon’s first game in 310 days. He pitched seven innings, allowing one run on five hits and zero walks with seven strikeouts.
He was the ‘Eagle Killer‘. Before he went under the knife with an elbow injury, he was a force to be reckoned with against Hanwha, but after his surgery and rehabilitation, he was not good against them.
Last season, after returning from injury, he went 2-2 with no wins and a 7.62 ERA in three starts. This season, he has a 2.45 ERA in his first two starts, but only one loss. Jong-hoon needed a win.
He finally got one. It was Jong-hoon’s second no-hitter since his six-inning shutout against Daejeon Hanwha on April 7, and his first win of the season since May 6 against the Kiwoom Heroes, 84 days after he picked up his second win of the season.
