“But the positive thing is that our starting rotation is playing well.”
Samsung has lost four straight games. They lost their seventh game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against SSG Landers 0-6 at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on 23 April.
Left-hander Baek Jung-hyun took the loss, allowing five runs on seven hits (three home runs) with two walks and five strikeouts in three innings카지노.
Baek was 4-4 with a 3.46 ERA in his previous 12 games. He suffered a loss against KT on the 17th, giving up six runs in 6⅔ innings, but had a decent outing against SSG on the 31st of last month, giving up two runs in five innings.
Moreover, Samsung’s starters have been steady recently, even during losing streaks. Against Kiwoom on the 20th, Buchanan gave up six runs in 6⅔ innings, but only one earned run. Defence was the problem.
On the 21st, they went 0-2 against Kiwoom, with Won Tae-in pitching seven scoreless innings. The offence was the problem in this game. On the 22nd, the offence was also a problem. Suarez pitched six innings and gave up two runs (one earned).
Before the game, manager Park Jin-man made a change by putting Kim Dong-yeop in left field and Pirela in right field to “maximise the offensive power” of the second team. An acknowledgement of an offensive problem.
“But the positive thing is that our starting rotation is working well,” said Park, who also had a meeting with the team to tell them to “take it easy” after their recent losing streak dropped them to the bottom of the table.
The Samsung starting line-up of Buchanan, Won Tae-in, Suarez, Baek Jung-hyun, and Choi Chae-heung is as good as any other team. But then the trusted Baek Jung-hyun fell apart.
