.”It actually got me excited” Double-kicking controversy, KIA ‘mental armour’ outsider comes out stronger

Despite protests from the opposition bench about double-kicking and holding moves, she stuck to her guns. On the contrary, he showed a stronger sense of competitiveness and gave a premonition of success from his debut.바카라사이트

KIA’s new foreign pitcher Mario Sanchez (29) made his debut in the seventh game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against KT Wiz at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 9th of this month, giving up one run on five hits (one home run) in 6⅓ innings with 10 strikeouts.

He gave up a solo home run to Lee Ho-yeon in the top of the fifth inning, but was unflappable the rest of the way. The only inning in which he was in scoring position was the fourth when Jang Jang-woo doubled. Sanchez made a quality start in his debut with a fastball that topped out at 147km and a mix of pitches including a slider, change-up, curve, two-seam and cutter. Sanchez said he also threw a sweeper that didn’t show up on the pitch breakdown sheet.

After the game, Sanchez said, “First of all, I feel really good. I hope I can do this all season long,” he said, adding, “The pitch I’m most confident with is my sweeper. I got a lot of strikes with my sweeper. It’s a pitch I started throwing last year.”

However, his debut was not as smooth as his record suggests. He was caught in a double-kicking controversy before the start of the fourth inning and was cautioned by the umpires, and in the sixth inning, he received a protest from his opponent for his holding motion while guarding the first baseman. A KIA official said, “When pitching, you have to lift your left leg consistently, but he was seen lifting it once more, so the umpires explained this to Sanchez and the coaching staff. The umpires explained this to Sanchez and his coaching staff and warned them that if he made a double motion, it would be ruled a ball.”We also heard how he came up with his unique stopping motion. “One of the guys I played with last year has been doing it his whole career,” Sanchez said. I tried it in camp last year and used it in a game, and it immediately caught the runner and I’ve been doing it ever since. It helps to tie up runners,” he said.

Sanchez pitched in a different league than his predecessor Adonis Medina, and he was pleased with his debut: “I would give myself a 90 out of 100, because I gave up one run. But I don’t care what my record is, as long as the team wins,” he said, demonstrating his team-first mentality.
