KIA Tigers Yang Hyeon Jong named MVP of August

 

The KIA Tigers veteran starter Yang Hyeon Jong has been named the Korea Baseball Organizations MVP of August.

 

The KBO said Sunday, Yang earned 41.74 points in a survey followed by the Kiwoom Heroes Park Byeong Ho with 36.97 and won the award.

 

The result is combination of 2 separate votes among sports journalists and fans. Each vote took 50% of the final result.

 

Yang is the second player to win both Pitcher of the Month and MVP after the LG Twins Tyler Wilson who earn both the honors in April.

 

It is also the second time for Yang to be handed the monthly MVP award this season after May.

 

In August, Yang grabbed 3 wins out of 5 starts and set his ERA at 0.51.

 

On August 4th, Yang pitched a shutout game with only 99 pitches against the NC Dinos, scoring the shortest game of the season at 1 hour and 59 minutes.

 

Also on August 28th, Yang scored the 1,500th strikeout of his career against the Samsung Lions as the 5th pitcher to reach the milestone in the KBO history.
