SHIELT manager Kim Kwang-hyun was very sharp on the pitch in a very ideal situation.
St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike S. Schilt spoke of the game that was regrettable and Kim Kwang-hyun, who showed good performance in the bullpen.
S.H.L.T. looked back at the game in an interview after losing to the Detroit Tigers 3-4 at Bush Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri on the 25th (Korea time). With a bitter look on his face, he expressed regret, saying, “The only good thing today is the extension of Yadi’s contract (nickname for Yadier Molina).”
St. Louis started the game in a festive mood, announcing Molina’s one-year contract extension before the game, but the excitement cooled completely in the top of the third inning. It’s because starter Jack Flaerty gave up four points and then he was forced over his shoulder.
“When the second ball shakes, he is a human being, and he may be shaken because he rested for a long time,” Schilt said. However, he checked the condition as the ball lost its power in the third inning. The front of the shoulder doesn’t feel good. “There are signs of tension,” he said. “Of course I’m worried. “It’s hopeless for him and for the team,” he said, expressing his disappointment again.
There was another player who was left out due to injury. Left fielder Tyler O’Neill has been excluded from the lineup due to tension in the middle. “I couldn’t play today. We will look at the status tomorrow.
“I did a great job,” he said, praising the bullpen, which took over the mound in the third inning and kept it scoreless. As for Kim Kwang-hyun, in particular, he played his part just as Ponce (Daniel Ponce de Leon) did. “It was sharp. There were five ground balls.”
Kim Kwang-hyun, who was on the injured list due to elbow inflammation, pitched 34 pitches in two innings five days ago, followed by 46 pitches in 22/3 innings. As a result, he pitched every five days, and the number of pitches and innings were all built up.
“It was a very ideal situation for him, and I think it was a good test. I’ll see how you recover. That’s where the next step will be set. “You did a great job today,” he said, adding, “I will first watch Kim Kwang-hyun’s recovery.”
