Panoni faced crisis for the first time in the bottom of the sixth inning. After two outs, Kim Jae-ho allowed an infield hit. Jae-ho Kim settled on second base with a stolen base, but ran all the way to third base due to a catcher’s throwing error. However, Panoni treated Rojas with a fly to left field with 2 outs and 3rd base on base and came down the mound to the cheers of the crowd.안전놀이터
Panoni threw a total of 98 pitches that day, focusing on cutters (49 pitches) and fastballs (33 pitches), along with a mix of curves (13 pitches) and changeups (3 pitches). The highest speed of the fastball was 145 km/h, and the cutter speed was 144 km/h. In particular, he showed off his perfect pitch control by putting 70 out of 98 pitches in the strike zone.
In particular, he faced Doosan hitters with his main weapon, the ‘cutter’, which hits the border line regardless of whether it is outside or inside. He recorded a hitting percentage of 0.276 against left-handed batters this season, showing a bit of weakness against left-handed batters, but he gave up hits only to right-handed batters Yang Eui-ui and Kim Jae-ho, completely shutting out left-handed batters.
