“An existence that cannot be dispensed with” Sacrifice of 4 innings senior side arm paved the way for a super rookie’s first win

“It is an existence that cannot be dispensed with.”

Ki-young Lim (29), sidearm of the KIA Tigers, is a middle pitcher. The starting position he held until last year was taken by rookie pitcher Yoon Young-chul (19). However, Lim Ki-young did the preliminary stop work to make Yoon Young-cheol’s first win. The bullpen pitchers who saved 4 innings gave Yoon Young-cheol his first win the next day. 

Lim Ki-young can pitch from one inning to a maximum of three innings. He likes the slider, two-seam, and changeup. He can play multiple innings with both left and right batters. He waits behind the starting pitcher and is immediately put in. It usually comes after Lee Eui-ri, Yoon Young-chul, and Medina, who have weak innings digestion. It’s a tough position, but he accepts it and does his best for the team. 

The game that showed Lim Ki-young’s value was against LG on April 30th. It looked like they would win the match at 12-8, but in the bottom of the ninth, Jeong Hae-young gave up a walk and a hit and was shaken. This time, it was a finishing pitcher, not a 1+1 to support the starting pitcher. He perfectly blocked one inning with exquisite pitching, kept the victory, and won the save.  먹튀검증

On the 2nd, he showed his true face in the Gwangju game against Lotte. Starter Medina was in trouble and only digested 3 innings. He kept the mound from the 5th to the 8th following Kim Dae-yu in the 4th inning. He stopped the bullpen leak from the first game of the week, digesting up to 4 innings, although he gave up 2 runs. He was able to free up the bullpen to operate. 

The 4 innings deletion effect led to the first win for top rookie Yoon Young-cheol. On the 3rd, Yoon Yeong-cheol blocked Lotte’s lineup, which was on a 9-game winning streak, with 5 innings and 1 run. Following them, Jeon Sang-hyeon, Jang Hyeon-sik, Lee Jun-yeong, and Kim Ki-hoon, who had conserved their strength the day before, took the mound in turn and blocked Lotte’s 10-game winning streak with powerful pitches. It was thanks to Lim Ki-young saving the strength of the bullpen.
