Left out in the cold?
Some of the wildest things happen in the Korea Baseball Futures League, which is the Korea Baseball Organization’s (KBO) farm league.
In a matchup between the KIA Tigers and Lotte Giants on April 5, Tigers starter Lee Jeong-hun (이정훈) gave up 15 runs (all earned) in 3.2 innings of work.
So, what is the record for most runs given up in a game by a single pitcher in Korea’s big leagues? The answer is “14” (all earned) set by Kim Yu-bong (김유봉) of the Seoul Doosan Bears back in 1999 (vs. Samsung Lions).
