‘Groundball factory’ Kium Furado shuts down KIA to secure four wins

The Kiwoom Heroes of the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) rode a no-hitter by Ariel Furado to a third straight win and a mid-table finish.

Kiwoom won its 2023 KBO home game against the KIA Tigers 1-0 at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on 13 March.

Hurado pitched six innings of three-hit ball with four strikeouts, easily cooking the KIA bats to snap a four-game losing streak and earn his fourth win in seven starts 토토사이트.

Hurado lowered his ERA from 3.10 to 2.86.

Hurado, who throws a sinking two-seam fastball as his primary weapon, struck out 11 batters and walked none. Shortstop Kim Hui-jip and third baseman Song Sung-moon diligently caught the grounders and threw them to first base.

Kiwoom scored its only run in the first inning thanks to a throwing error by KIA shortstop Park Chan-ho.

With one out in the first inning, Park Chan-ho shifted to second base and appeared to pick off Lee Jung-hoo’s line drive to centre field, but the ball was too strong for him to catch with his glove and sailed behind him.

With runners on first and second, Addison Russell hit a clean single up the middle to bring home Kim Hye-sung from second.

KIA had a chance to tie the game in the top of the seventh with three singles, but Ryu Ji-hyeok was thrown out at second base to end the threat.

Kia left-hander Yang Hyun-jong, whose ERA has soared to the mid-4s in his last two outings, took the loss after allowing one run (unearned) in five innings, but found solace in regaining his command of the game.

KIA’s Choi Won-jun, who batted second and played first base on the day after being released from his contract with the team the day before, showed off his rusty bat by going 2-for-4 with a double.
