Kim Yu-seong, wearing a Doosan uniform, climbed the mound in Changwon… 1 inning 2K scoreless

 Doosan Bears rookie Kim Yu-seong (21) stood on the mound in Changwon, home of the NC Dinos, who nominated him for the first time.

In the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League NC match held at NC Park in Changwon, Gyeongnam on the 30th, Kim Yoo-seong took the mound as the 5th pitcher of the team at the end of the 8th inning, trailing 0-5.

Kim Yu-seong, who made his third appearance in his debut in this game, lowered his season average ERA to 15.00 (5 runs in 3 innings).

Yuseong Kim had a delicate relationship with NC. Kim Yoo-seong, who was born in Gimhae, Gyeongnam, and played an active role as an ace at Gimhae High School, received the first NC nomination in 2021. At that time, the primary nomination system based on regional connections remained, and NC naturally nominated the ‘regional talent’ that came out after a long time.

However, as the issue of school violence by Kim Yu-seong arose later, the controversy grew and NC came to withdraw his nomination. NC lost the first rookie nomination right that year.

Kim Yoo-seong, who continued his career as a player after going to Korea University, knocked on the rookie draft door again last year, and joined Doosan after designating him with the 19th overall in the second round.

Prior to the game, Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “I will throw it in a convenient situation. If it is a winning situation, I will not put it on the mound.”

Kim Yoo-seong faced Kim Joo-won as the first batter. After throwing the first ball, he put in a series of strikes with a 2-ball slider and a 3-ball curve, and then induced a miss with the 4th pitch, 151 km fast.

After getting an advantageous count of 1 ball and 2 strikes for follow-up hitter Seo Ho-cheol, he also struck out on a swing with a 151km fast ball and struck out 2 batters in a row.

However, he started to falter against the top batting order after two shots. Kim Yu-seong gave Son Ah-seop a walk after a 7-pitch game,스포츠토토 and Park Min-woo also allowed a walk by throwing balls consecutively.

Even after pitching coach Jae-Hoon Jeong visited the mound, Yoo-Sung Kim, who could hardly find stability, threw a wild pitch to the face in a game against Gun-Woo Park, and was driven to second and third base.

Kim Yoo-seong, who was also driven by Park Kun-woo with a 3-ball 1 strike, barely finished the inning as Park Kun-woo’s hit stopped shortstop’s fly ball on the 5th pitch.
