KIA Tigers left-handed pitcher Thomas Panoni (29) pitched 5 scoreless innings in the second game of his return to the KBO League.
Panoni started on the 25th in an away game against the NC Dinos held at NC Park in Changwon, and recorded no runs by striking out 7 in 5 innings. Sasagu gave up only one.
In the bottom of the first inning, with no runners on the first run, Panoni gave a right-handed hit to Park Min-woo, and a right-handed hit to Martin from second out and first base, facing a crisis with second out and first and second base. When dealing with Kwon Hee-dong, he even allowed a double steal and allowed a crisis against the 2nd and 3rd bases. However, Kwon Hee-dong was induced to swing with a cutter and ended the inning without a run.
In the first inning, he faced a bit of a crisis, but in the second inning, he ended the inning with two strikeouts and a three-way strike. In the third inning, he struck out two and continued his three-way offense. NC hitters’ bats turned without a doubt on his main weapon, the cutter.
After a full count in the 4th inning, Panoni allowed a walk to lead batter Park Kun-woo. When Martin grounded, Park Gun-woo, who was running to second base, was forced out, but Yoon Hyung-jun allowed a left-handed hit from second base and first base. However, he struck out Seok-Min Park while mixing cutters and fastballs at 2nd out, 1st and 3rd base, and continued the scoreless march.
Panoni faced a run crisis in the 5th inning as well. In a situation where there were no runners in the first company, Kim Joo-won and Son Ah-seop were allowed consecutive hits and faced a situation with 1 company and 1st and 2nd bases. However, Park Min-woo was struck out on a swing, and after a game that went up to 9 pitches, Park Gun-woo was treated as a ground ball and came down the mound.
Panoni threw a total of 88 pitches that day. He centered on the cutter (40 pitches) and fastball (33 pitches), mixing his curveball (12 pitches) and changeup (3 pitches). The highest velocity of the fastball was 147 km/h.
Panoni played 14 games for the KIA last year, recording an average ERA of 2.72 with 3 losses and 4 losses. However, he failed to renew his contract with KIA and headed back to the United States.
However, when the two newly recruited foreign pitchers were all sluggish, KIA replaced them and succeeded in re-recruiting the proven Panoni. Panoni had a comeback against Samsung on the 12th and allowed 2 runs in 4 innings.토토사이트
