On August 22, Kim Sun-woo gathered his first victory since he moved to Colorado Rockies. However, the left-handed specialist for New York Mets, Koo Dae-sung, was demoted to the minors.
Kim took the mound at the top of the fifth inning with his team losing 3-5 in a home game against the Chicago Cubs and didnt allow a run with no walks and three hits in two innings. Right after, the Colorado Rockies came from behind in the bottom of the fifth inning to tip the score to 6-5 and won the game, 9-7, which made Kims record two wins against two losses this year.
On the other hand, the New York Mets sent Koo Dae-sung to the Norfolk Tides in Triple-A. Meanwhile, Colorado announced that it will deploy Kim Byung-hyun as a starter in an away game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on August 25. With Kims scheduled start, three Korean pitchers will start games on the same day: Kim, Park Chan-ho (San Diego Padres), and Seo Jae-ung (New York Mets) for the third time this year since April 30 and August 20.
