Darvish, “I feel that Korea is a great team”… The sad reality of ‘the number of cases in Korea’ even with good words

Darvish Yu (37‧ San Diego), who was evaluated as the best pitcher in Japanese professional baseball, signed a contract with the US Major League Texas in 2012 through the posting system (private competitive bidding). Since then, he has been living in the United States through Los Angeles Dodgers ‧ Chicago Cubs ‧ San Diego.메이저사이트

For Darvish, the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) is special. This is because it is a chance for him to throw the ball in his home country. Considering his considerable age, playing the WBC at the Tokyo Dome may be his last. Darvish’s extraordinary will was also evident in the fact that he made his body early and joined the national team immediately without going to team spring training. So Darvish’s appearance in the match against Korea on the 10th brought great emotions to me personally.

Although he did not achieve good results by allowing 3 runs in 3 innings, including a home run by Yang Eui-ui, his teammates rallied their strength and led the team to a 13-4 victory. Even in Darvish’s memory on the international stage, Korea has always been a tricky team, but this time they won comfortably.

On the 11th, Darvish conveyed his impressions of this game and his gratitude to the fans through his social network service (SNS). Darvish looked back on the previous day’s game, saying, “Yesterday (10th), I was able to stand on the Japanese mound for the first time since 2011. I was really happy to play the Japanese mound, which I had dreamed of many times since I moved to the United States in 2012.”

“I felt that the Korean national team is a great team because they have sharp movements and fundamental stamina,” he said, raising his opponent. “To be honest, I didn’t have enough time to enjoy it. The speed that I was worried about came out to 96 mph, the texture of the big slider was fine, the two-seam was thrown properly before hitting the home run, and I caught a strike with the first pitch curve against Kim Hyun-soo in the 3rd inning, 50 in the 3rd inning with my own intensity. There was something I could throw a ball at,” he looked back.

Darvish said, “There is still a possibility of throwing one more game in Japan, so I want to clarify what I want to do in the next game and spend a few days.” bowed down

Darvish had a bit of a struggle in the Korean match, and even if not, it can be said that he was polite to the opponent. However, after Darvish went down, Korea’s batting line was tied up tightly, and on the contrary, the pitchers collapsed, making it difficult to deal with even three batters. Even Darvish’s good words are sad in our reality, where we have to count even the ‘number of cases’.

They lost 7-8 in their first game against Australia on the 9th, and with a crushing defeat against Japan, Korea’s chances of advancing to the second round are impossible on their own. First of all, assuming that Japan catches Australia and runs a four-game winning streak, it must win against the Czech Republic on the 12th by a large margin. And on the 13th, the Czech Republic must catch Australia. However, depending on the conceded points, it may be difficult to advance to the second round even if such a scenario is completed.
