(Changwon = Yonhap News) Reporter Kyung-yun Kim = KIA Tigers ace Yang Hyun-jong (34) felt pain in his left elbow during the defense at the bottom of the 3rd inning.

Yang Hyun-jong, who has been throwing the ball since the first inning, felt an abnormality in his elbow, probably because he threw the ball too hard.

After defending in the third inning, Yang Hyun-jong, who entered the dugout, clenched his teeth and rubbed his elbow.

Yang Hyun-jong’s expression on the broadcast was tragic.

Yang Hyun-jong did not stop pitching. He also appeared in the 4th and 5th innings and threw the ball with all his might until he was substituted after a triple to first batter Son Asop in the 6th inning.

Yang Hyun-jong started the game against NC Dinos in professional baseball at Changwon NC Park on the 22nd.

Today’s match was special. 5th place KIA has recently lost 9 in a row and was being chased by 6th place NC by half a game.

Yang Hyun-jong was on the mound in the crisis of losing the team 10th straight and falling to 6th place.

Actually, Yang Hyun-jong’s recent pace hasn’t been very good.

He had already played many innings this season, so his physical strength was evident.

Yang Hyun-jong was sluggish with an ERA of 6.99 in five games he started in August, and also recorded an ERA of 5.00 in three games he played since September.

During this period, Yang Hyun-jong won only one win and three losses.

NC, on the other hand, put in left-handed ace Chang-mo Koo for this game.

It was a tough situation. However, Yang Hyun-jong had nowhere to retreat.

Although the pressure and pressure on the shoulders were considerable, Yang Hyun-jong threw the ball vigorously.

Yang Hyun-jong did not waver. In the second inning, one company, one base crisis, Yoon Hyung-Jun and Seo Ho-Cheol turned side by side with a futile swing strikeout.

He did not show any signs of pain even after the 3rd episode, when he started to feel elbow pain.

The fastball speed that struck out the last batter Son Ah-seop in the third inning was 147 km/h.

Yang Hyun-jong’s fastball restraint decreased from the 4th inning, probably due to the aftermath of elbow pain.

However, Yang Hyun-jong skillfully caught the opponent’s batting line with a changing ball such as a slider and a changeup.

In the 5th inning, 2 out of 1 base crisis, after an 8-th match with Park Min-woo, he took the lead by dealing with a shortstop ground ball.

Yang Hyun-jong’s fighting spirit woke the KIA players. The beasts, who made numerous mistakes during the nine-game losing streak, helped Hyun-Jong Yang with concentrated play.

The bullpen, who had repeatedly made blow saves, kept the lead by two points until the end with a different concentration than before.

KIA, united with Yang Hyun-jong, defeated NC 3-1 and broke the chain of 9 straight losses. In addition, he also secured 5th place.

On this day, Yang Hyun-jong became a winning pitcher with 5 hits, 5 strikeouts, and 1 run in 5 innings, setting the record for pitching 170 innings for 8 consecutive seasons for the first time in the KBO league. He also scored his first all-team victory this season.

However, for Yang Hyeon-jong, these achievements were not in his mind.

Yang Hyun-jong, who I met after the game, said, “I heard about it after I got off the mound.

Regarding the elbow condition, he said, “I had pain from the 3rd inning, but I threw the ball with the thought that I had to take responsibility for at least the 5th. “I got off the mound,” he said.

Yang Hyun-jong also reassured those around him, saying, “It seems to be a momentary pain” and “I don’t think there will be a big problem in the next game.”

When asked about his feelings after losing the losing streak, he said calmly, “It has been very difficult for both the players and coaches.
