‘Razor blade control’ Lim Chan-gyu, 5K scoreless perfect pitch in 6 innings… Season 2 wins + first QS

LG Twins Lim Chan-gyu (31) showed off his best pitching this season.

Lim Chan-gyu started the match against Kiwoom Heroes of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 11th and recorded a victory with 3 hits, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts in 6 innings. 

Lim Chan-gyu, who recorded a three-way offense in the first inning, walked Hyung-jong Lee in the second inning, but struck out both Chan-hyeok Park and Byung-wook Lim without being shaken. In the 3rd inning 2 out, Lee Won-seok was sent out on a walk after being hit by Lee Jung-hoo, but Kim Hye-seong was caught with a floating ball in center field and escaped the crisis. 

Lim Chan-gyu, who was hit by lead batter Edison Russell in the 4th inning, easily escaped the crisis by inducing Lee Hyung-jong to double-strike. He was hit by Kim Hwi-jip in the 5th inning as well, but ended the inning by treating Lee Ji-young and Lee Jung-hoo with a hit. 

Lim Chan-gyu, who came to the mound in the 6th inning, ended the inning lightly with a three-way strike. In the 7th inning, when LG led 1-0, he was replaced with Yoo Young-chan and finished the mound that day. LG achieved a thrilling 1-0 scoreless victory as the bullpen blocked the remaining innings with no runs. Lim Chan-gyu earned his second win of the season. 스포츠토토

Lim Chan-gyu, who recorded 80 pitches, used a fastball (31 pitches), a curve (24 pitches), a changeup (18 pitches), and a slider (7 pitches). His highest fastball velocity was 144 km/h, but he tied Kiwoom’s lineup with sharp control and a curve with a large drop that stabbed every corner of the strike zone.

Lim Chan-gyu, who had never completed the 6th inning before the match, threw 6 innings for the first time this season and did not allow a single run. This is the first quality start of the season (less than 3 earned runs in 6 innings). It is the first time that Lim Chan-gyu blocked more than 6 scoreless innings since the match against Hanwha on September 28 last year (6 scoreless innings victory).
