After the game,먹튀검증 Song Young-jin said, “Above all, I am personally most satisfied with pitching without pitching. Coach Woong-cheon Cho and senior Min-shik Kim advised me to ‘get a hit rather than a walk.’ “I was going to throw it in, but the lead of not allowing a walk but rather catching the batter led to good results. In fact, I didn’t give up a walk, so I was mentally comfortable and was able to play the game without being chased.”
He continued, “I gave up a lot of hits in the first inning, but it seems that the opponent hitters analyzed well and came out. I liked the combination of the fastball and the slider ball, so I increased the proportion of curves as Min-shik led, and in the end I changed it to a fastball game.” I am really grateful for the opportunity to be on the mound, and I will work hard to prepare myself so that I can show myself improving.”
