Escape from crisis with 1st company 2nd and 3rd base
Ahead of the Doosan Bears match held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 17th,
kt wiz coach Lee Kang-chul showed confidence in Park by saying, “Even when I put Park Young-hyun on the mound,
I thought, ‘What if I don’t have him (because he participated in the Asian Games)?” revealed
Park Young-hyeon, who is in his second year as a professional this year,
is currently one of the best bullpen pitchers in the KBO league.

Without the performance of Park Young-hyun,
who threw 57⅔ innings and earned 3 wins, 3 losses, 3 saves and an ERA of 3.12,
kt’s rise from last place at the beginning of the season to second place would have been impossible.
Originally, Park Young-hyun’s job was to guard the mound
until finisher Kim Jae-yoon came up, but on days when Kim Jae-yoon couldn’t play,
he had to crack down on the back door.
Coincidentally, in the game on the 17th, kt decided to give Kim Jae-yoon a break, and at the end of the 9th inning,
which was leading 9-5, Sovereignty gave a one-run home run to lead batter Jose Rojas, and the save situation was ready.
Park Young-hyun, who climbed the mound to protect the team’s victory,
swayed here and there, perhaps because of the ‘weight of the ninth inning’.
Yang Seok-hwan, Kang Seung-ho, and Kim In-tae
were hit and allowed 1 run, and pinch hitter Park Joon-young also hit 1 RBI and double.
With the score narrowed to 9-8, Manager Lee visited the mound and conveyed his intention
to leave Park Young-hyeon up to the end when he faced a desperate crisis with 1 company, 2nd and 3rd base.
Park Young-hyeon overcame the biggest hurdle by treating Heo Gyeong-min as a shallow outfield floating ball,
ended the game with a strikeout after a full count match with Jo Soo-haeng.
Catcher Jang Seong-woo, whom we met after the game, explained why Park Young-hyun struggled,
saying, “The ball itself had power, but it was thrown in the opposite direction to the requested side.”
Jang Seong-wu said, “The coach came up to the mound and said,
‘It’s okay if I give you all the points, so let’s do it comfortably.
Your body has put a lot of energy into it,
so try to lighten it up a little’ and went down.”
It was a great experience for Park Young-hyun to overcome the crisis
by choosing to play against Heo Gyeong-min at 1st, 2nd and 3rd base.
Jang Seong-woo said, “I felt rather comfortable when that situation happened.
We are on a winning streak, and Doosan is on a losing streak.
In baseball, there is a saying that ‘a winning streak is easy to continue,
a losing streak is difficult to break’.” , but I felt like I could stop it.”
Park Young-hyun said, “(Kim) Jae-yoon took on the finishing role
because it was his brother’s day off, and it’s fortunate that he won.”
He was not good with 4 hits and 2 runs in 1 inning, but as a result,
he improved by a hand thanks to his team victory. Park Young-hyun promised,
“I try to throw with a sense of weight and focus. I will do my best to throw in any situation.”
The growth of Park Young-hyun, who is gaining experience as a closer in the bullpen,
is expected to be a great help to the Hangzhou Asian Games baseball team
aiming for a gold medal
