“I’m fine today” Noh Kyung-eun, the tireless 39-year-old ‘senior power’ who asked to be on standby for three straight fights
SSG veteran right-handed pitcher Noh Kyung-eun (39) has requested to pitch three consecutive games.
SSG manager Kim Won-hyung met with reporters before the game against Samsung in Daegu on the 27th and said, “Noh Kyung-eun said that he is feeling too good, so he is waiting in the bullpen today. Go Hyo-joon and Moon Seung-won are not waiting.”
SSG used up its bullpen heavily against Samsung on May 25-26. Noh Kyung-eun (12 pitches in ⅓ inning, 27 pitches in 2⅔ innings), Ko Hyo-joon (10 pitches in ⅔ inning, 22 pitches in ⅔ inning), and Moon Seung-won (15 pitches in 1 inning, 38 pitches in 1⅓ inning) all pitched back-to-back games.
Noh Kyung-eun was the second pitcher in the third inning after foreign pitcher Kirk McCarty, who was limited in pitches in his return from injury in the previous day’s game, and pitched 2⅔ innings of three-hit ball, striking out two and walking none to set the stage for the win.
“Kyung-eun pitched well yesterday, and when you lose three of your best pitchers at once, it’s very hard to come back,” said manager Kim Won-hyung. “Seo Jin-yong also didn’t throw many pitches (25) yesterday, so he’s available today.”
Noh has pitched 44 innings in 41 games this season, posting a 6-3 record with two saves and 18 holds with a 3.89 ERA and 31 strikeouts. She leads the team in saves and has pitched multiple innings when the team needs her.
Earlier in the season, he pitched three straight games. On April 7-9, he pitched three straight games against the Hanwha in Daejeon. In the last game, she pitched one inning of two-hit, three-strikeout relief to lead the team to a sweep. SSG hadn’t had a three-game streak since Noh Kyung-eun, Ko Hyo-joon, and Choi Min-joon pitched three consecutive games at the time.스포츠토토
