The KT Wiz’s right-handed foreign pitcher Bo Chul-seo, who fell into sluggish performance, failed to find an opportunity to rebound even in the 7th start of the season.
Schulser started in an away game against the LG Twins in the 2023 professional baseball KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 17th and allowed 9 hits, 5 walks, 3 strikeouts and 5 runs in 5 innings.
Schulser, who joined KT ahead of this season, played in 6 games before this LG match, and had an average ERA of 4.63 with 1 win and 4 losses. In response, KT coach Lee Kang-cheol, who met before the game, said to Schulser, “You have to control the number of pitches well” and “You have to go up to 6 innings” and hoped for his rebound.
However, Schulser failed to respond to the expectations of the command tower. Most of all, it was largely because of his lack of control to the extent that he gave up five balls. Coming off the mound with the team trailing 2-5, he will take the 5th loss of the season if KT loses without making a tie.
The start wasn’t bad. In the bottom of the first inning, lead batter Hong Chang-ki was treated as a shortstop ground ball. Park Hae-min then hit the shortstop infield, but caught it from first base with a sharp check. For the follow-up hitter Kim Hyun-soo, he made a fly to the right field.
The bottom of the second inning was also tough, but I didn’t concede. Leading batter Austin Dean was induced with a fly to left field. He allowed Oh Ji-hwan to walk and advance to second base with a wild throw, but he sighed by leading Moon Bo-kyung to a knockout. Afterwards, he dedicated a walk to Park Dong-won and reached 2 out 1st and 2nd base, but ended the inning by turning Lee Jae-won into a looking strikeout.
The 3rd inning was neat. Kim Min-seong and Hong Chang-ki were treated as shortstop grounders and first baseman grounders, respectively. Follow-up hitter Park Hae-min got a heavy hit, but Kim Hyun-soo turned into a knock-out.
However, in the bottom of the 4th inning, Schulser was greatly shaken. After allowing hits and walks to Austin and Oh Ji-hwan, he dedicated 1 RBI to Moon Bo-kyung for a timely hit. Afterwards, Park Dong-won walked and the bases were loaded safely, and here Lee Jae-won hit a timely double with 3 RBIs that exceeded the height of the center fielder.먹튀검증
Shulser, who hesitated once, could hardly find stability. In the 1st and 3rd base that led to Kim Min-sung’s sacrifice bunt, Hong Chang-ki also allowed 1 RBI and a timely hit. Follow-up hitter Park Hae-min tied it up with a shortstop fly, but Kim Hyun-soo allowed a heavy hit and was driven to 2nd, 1st and 3rd base. Fortunately, Austin was blocked with a fly by the first baseman and no additional runs were allowed.
Even at the end of the 5th inning, Schulser, who came up to the mound, induced Oh Ji-hwan to hit the second baseman with a straight hit. Afterwards, Moon Bo-kyung and Park Dong-won each hit and doubled, and Lee Jae-won dedicated four intentionally automatic pitches and reached a full base with one out, but Kim Min-seong treated the third baseman with a double hit and finished the inning with difficulty.
In the bottom of the 6th inning, KT changed the pitcher with the sovereignty of the right-handed bullpen agent.
