‘8:0 rainy no-hitter’… Plutko chooses full-pitching over recovery training [Gwangju site].

His first start in two weeks. After pitching 1⅓ innings of two-hit ball, Plutko was forced to leave the game due to a sudden downpour. With an 8-0 lead,바카라사이트 the LG Twins were left with a bitter taste in their mouths when the game was rained out in the second inning.

Day 9, Gwangju-Kia Champions Field. LG’s foreign ace, Plutko, throws the ball as if he’s making up for not throwing it in his start against the KIA Tigers the day before.

The rain that began falling in the Gwangju area earlier in the day stopped by the afternoon.

One and a third innings was not enough.

Pleased with his pitch

Coach Kim Kwang-sam’s advice after watching the pitch

“Give me the second half!
Usually, pitchers who have pitched the previous day focus on recovery training the next day. But Plutko’s case was different. He took the mound for the first time in 14 days due to a cold and the coronavirus, but was forced off the mound after less than two innings due to rain.

With pitching coach Kim Kwang-sam looking on, Plutko checked his condition by throwing the ball as hard as he could in the catcher’s box as if he were on the mound.

The previous day’s start was rained out, and Plutko’s only official appearance in the second half was a six-inning start against KT on 25 July. Plutko was scheduled to pitch against SSG in Jamsil on July 22, but the game was cancelled due to rain, and he had to take two weeks off due to a cold and coronavirus after the 25th game. He pitched only one-third of the game on the 8th, and it was deleted from his record.

Plutko, who is 11-2 with a 2.33 ERA this season, may have benefited from the long break. Will we find out in his next start?
