“Whatever you throw, I hit everything.” Even in my prime, I sweated a lot…Ryu Hyun-jin’s 100th win ‘re-challenge’, surpasses KBO home run king

“I know what you’re going to throw by the look on your face.”

Ryu Hyun-jin (37) of the Hanwha Eagles will start the game against the SSG Landers at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Tuesday. Ryu played in 30 games against the SSG (including his time at SK Wyverns) and recorded 13 wins, 8 losses and 3.06 ERA.

At the SSG, the batter Ryu faced the most difficult situation when he was playing in the KBO league, is waiting for him. After the end of the 2012 season, Ryu appeared on an entertainment program and picked Choi Jeong (37) as the batter who had the most difficult time to deal with.
Ryu said, “I hit everything I throw. When I asked him about his secret, he said, ‘I know what you’re going to throw by looking at his face.’

In fact, Choi Jeong-eun has displayed strong performance, recording four home runs with a batting average of 362 percent (21 hits in 58 times at bat) from 2006, when he joined the Hanwha Eagles, to 2012, just before he entered the Major League 토토사이트. He even said that he skipped the game in a crisis situation and faced the next batter.

Ryu moved to the U.S. Major League after finishing the 2012 season. He has won 78 titles throughout the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Ryu has returned to the KBO after 11 years in the Major League. This season, Ryu has lost one game and posted an ERA of 5.91 in six games, showing his reputation as unfit.

The batting line did not help, and the defense was shaken. Ryu Hyun-jin also struggled with the opposing batter.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who reported his first win in his return by giving six scoreless innings against the Doosan Bears on the 11th, his third appearance of the season, will have one win left until his 100th career win. However, he failed to achieve 100 wins against the NC Dinos on the 17th because the batting line did not burst despite his three-run pitching in seven innings, and he became a losing pitcher in the KT Wiz game on the 24th as he was shaken by seven runs (five earned) in five innings without receiving defense help.

In his third attempt to win 100 games, he encountered an “enemy” who had bullied him in the past. Choi has made history by consistently playing in the KBO league. He recorded 469 home runs overall in his career, rewriting the most home runs in the KBO league (467), which Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop set when he was an active player.

Choi Jung-eun, who rose to first place alone against the Lotte Giants on the 24th, hit a grand slam against KT on the 28th and recorded 469 home runs.

Ryu Hyun-jin and Choi Jeong have faced off for the first time in 12 years since August 23, 2012.

Ryu has another meaningful showdown with Ryu. Choo had a showdown with Choo in the Major League Baseball. When he was with the Cincinnati Reds, Choo had a showdown with the LA Dodgers’ rookie Ryu Hyun-jin on July 28, 2013. Choo had no hit and one walk from two times at bat. Since then, there has been no showdown.

Meanwhile, the starting pitcher of the SSG is also meaningful to Ryu. Lee Ki-soon will be the starting pitcher, who is 16 years younger than Dongsan High School. Lee joined the SSG in the second round of the 2022 Rookie Draft (ranked 42nd overall) and played in five games, allowing six runs in nine ⅔ innings. Lee will make his debut as a starting pitcher against “high school seniors” in all five games as relief pitchers.
