He did his job as a starting pitcher. However, his victory and fate did not reach.

Ahn Woo-jin, who plays the role of a native ace on the Kiwoom Heroes mound, started an away game against the Lotte Giants at Sajik Stadium on the 21st. After the All-Star break, the second half of the KBO League schedule began on this day.

Kiwoom, who finished the first half with 7 consecutive losses, presented the most reliable card as a starter. Ahn Woo-jin showed a pitch that matched expectations.

He threw 89 pitches in 6 innings against the Lotte batting line that day and achieved a quality start (less than 3 earned runs in 6 innings by a starting pitcher) with 5 hits (1 home run), 6 strikeouts and 2 runs. However, he failed to meet the winning pitcher requirements.

From the perspective of Ahn Woo-jin and Kiwoom, it was painful to allow Jeon Jun-woo a two-run home run at the end of the 3rd inning. Jeon Joo-woo turned the bat to the 3rd slider (145km) thrown by An Woo-jin in the second at-bat in the 2nd out 1st base situation.안전놀이터

The ball went over the left wall and became a two-run home run (Season No. 7). After the end of the 6th inning, Ahn Woo-jin handed over the mound to second pitcher Kim Jae-woong in the process of changing air and defense. Kiwoom finished the game first with Lotte trailing 0-2.

If Lotte maintains the lead and the game ends as it is, An Woo-jin will become the loser pitcher. Kiwoom’s losing streak also extends to 8 games. Lotte replaced the mound with Kim Sang-soo and Koo Seung-min following Charlie Barnes (5.2 scoreless innings) who started. In the middle of the 7th inning, the confrontation between the two teams is still with Lotte leading Kiwoom 2-0.
