“A DM to Won Tae-in…”” Rookie, a 19-year-old who secretly stole tears, came to the passion of asking about ML’s highly praised changeup

To be honest, it was very difficult.” KT Wiz rookie Won Won-hyun (19) took care of his first win with his first quality start (more than six innings and less than three earned runs).토토사이트

Won Won-hyun started the home game against the Hanwha Eagles at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 25th and recorded three strikeouts with two strikeouts in six innings.

Wonshin threw a total of 83 pitches, mixing up to 148 km/h fastballs (33) with changeups (38) and curves (12). Wonshin considered fastballs and curves as his main weapons, but he enjoyed the game by increasing the portion of changeups.

He got off to a shaky start when he was hit by leadoff hitter Choi In-ho in the top of the first inning, but struck out Jonathan Peraza with a changeup. Roh then watched the game through a changeup, and garnered a grounder to the shortstop without a hit in a regular hit. He made his first start by swinging Chae Eun-seong to right field.

After getting a hit by leadoff hitter An Chi-hong in the second inning, Won failed to hit a regular hit again, resulting in a double play. He struck out rookie with a change-up, change-up, and curve ball against Lim.

There were walks in the third and fourth innings, but Won Won-hyun, who kept the mound without losing a point, finished the inning with a three-out in the fifth inning.

There was no big crisis in the sixth inning either. He got a hit by Peraza after one out, but blocked Noh with a fly ball to left field. A wild pitch came out and he put a runner on second base, but he calmly caught Chae Eun-sung with a fly ball to center field to end his role.

The batting lineup also eased Won’s shoulders by scoring massive amounts of points. He scored five points in the fourth inning alone, and added another point in the sixth inning.

Hanwha won 9-0, holding Won Won-hyun to his first debut win.

After the game, Won smiled brightly at the water baptism of his seniors. “I think it’s my first time getting hit by a bolt of water,” he said with a smile.

After graduating from Busan High School, Wonshin joined KT in the first round of the draft in 2024 (the seventh overall pick). As he competed for the starting pitcher this season, he made the opening entry list and recorded one loss and 7.88 ERA in five games. Except for allowing no run in two innings at the match against the Hanwha Eagles on Sunday, he was the starting pitcher in all four games.

He made his name as the best pitcher in high school, but it was not easy to settle down in the professional league immediately. In the match against SSG Landers on the 13th, he had nine hits in two innings and allowed seven runs. In the match against Lotte on the 19th, he rebounded with one run in five innings, but the memory of seven runs remained a scar for a young pitcher.

Won said, “My first win was later than I thought. Honestly, it was very difficult. I consumed a lot of emotions and shed a lot of tears.”

He continued, “When I think about it, I’m still a rookie and I have more days to play baseball, but I thought I should catch it when the coach gives me a chance and work hard. I practiced changeup hard, and I think that led to a good result,” he said. “I think my first win is meaningful. The SSG match was so hard, and I pitched in Busan that I met the winning pitcher requirements, but I wasn’t satisfied. That’s how much, I can feel my victory today.”

The performance of rookies such as Hwang Joon-seo (Hanwha), Kim Taek-yeon (Doosan), and Jeon Mir (Lotte) became another stimulus. Won Sang-hyun said, “In fact, when (Hwang) Jun-seo and (Kim) Taek-yeon went to Busan not too long ago, (former) Mir and (former) Jun-pyo and (Son) Hyun-ki of Kiwoom were all doing well, but I felt most disappointed. On top of that, (six) Cheong-myeong was also showing good performance, so I felt that there was no pressure, and I was frustrated.”

In particular, Yuk Cheong-myung of the same team did not win in three games this season, but showed good pitching with a 2.45 ERA. In the match against Hanwha on the 23rd, he allowed three runs (two earned runs) in five innings and pitched five innings in two consecutive games.

Won said, “I was stimulated a lot. I definitely have a good synergy effect. It would have been nice if I was doing well, but I was envious as I learned because Cheongmyeong (Yuk) got a good result while I was sluggish. I think it gave me an opportunity to focus more and do well.”

The change-up that went into effect on the day was also made up of Won Tae-in of the Samsung Lions. Won said, “I practiced splitter since I was in high school, but it was difficult to change during the season, so I decided to keep going with the change-up that I was throwing. Coach Je Chun-mo helped me, and I met with Won Tae-in of Samsung and asked him about the change-up. I also sent him an SNS messenger (DM) and asked him. I thought I should contact a senior who throws change-ups well, so I learned from his advice.
