2 vacancies in the starting pitching staff
will make a bet on the operation of the bullpen.
The bullpen and batting line will win on the 19th.
Despite the crisis, the Samsung Lions are taking one step at a time. It seems that starting pitchers and other lines are reviving and opening a way out. If the batting line shows a little more cohesiveness and the bullpen holds up, he can hit more.
Before the game on the 19th, Samsung played 14 games and recorded 6 wins and 8 losses. It is in 8th place out of 10 clubs, but it is not far behind the 5th place KT Wiz by 1.5 games. It is also comforting to record 4 wins and 1 loss after 6 consecutive losses.
The strength of the starting pitching staff and the batting line changed the atmosphere. Starting pitchers such as David Buchanan, Won Tae-in, and Baek Jung-hyun pitched relatively well, and Koo Ja-wook and Jose Pirella’s bats fired fire.카지노
But this is not enough. Yang Chang-seop’s bullpen transition and Albert Suarez temporarily left for the United States on the 17th to deal with personal matters, leaving two starting positions empty. Immediately on the 19th against the Kiwoom Heroes, Jaehee Lee and against the KIA Tigers on the 21st, Piljun Jang will be on the mound as temporary starters.
The role of the bullpen has become more important as there are two temporary starters. How long innings the temporary starter handles and the operation of the bullpen are the keys to victory. In particular, the game depended on the pitching of the left-hander Lee Seung-hyun duo and veteran duo Woo Kyu-min and Oh Seung-hwan, who had the same name.
The power of the other line is also desperate. If Jae-il Oh, who had a batting average of 0.191 until the game on the 19th, revives, the power of Samsung’s top batting line will be doubled. Lee Seong-gyu’s bat, which hit 5 batted balls over the outfield fence in the demonstration game and topped the home run, should also be heated.
Meanwhile, Samsung defeated Kiwoom Heroes 9-5 at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 19th after an extended match. In the starting matchup, he was pushed out of strength, but as the bullpen gained strength and the batting line showed cohesiveness in the second half of the game, Kiwoom was defeated consecutively following the previous day.
Samsung was pushed back in the selection fight. Kiwoom’s ace Ahn Woo-jin, a fireballer, fought back with 5 hits, 10 strikeouts and 2 runs in 6 innings. Samsung’s temporary starter Lee Jae-hee recorded 2 hits and 3 runs in 4 innings.
Still, the Samsung bullpen held up well. Yang Chang-seop, Kim Dae-woo, Woo Kyu-min, and left-hander Lee Seung-hyun, who took over the mound from Lee Jae-hee, blocked the bullpen well with one run in 4⅔ innings. It was regrettable that closer Oh Seung-hwan got a timely hit from Edison Russell with 2 out on 1st and 3rd base in the bottom of the 9th inning with a 5-4 lead. It was fortunate that Oh Seung-hwan blocked the 10th inning without a run.
The finish faltered, but the bullpen that followed struggled. Lee Sang-min and right-hander Lee Seung-hyun blocked Kiwoom’s lineup with one scoreless inning each. The concentration of the batting line at the end was also outstanding. In the top of the 12th inning against 5 to 5, Oh Jae-il’s infield grounder scored one point with one company loaded, and Kim Seong-yoon’s infield hit earned an additional point. Afterwards, Gong Min-gyu and Kang Min-ho’s timely hits led the team to 9 to 5, putting a wedge in the game.
