‘5 innings, 4 runs → 8 innings, 1 run’ The ace is back. but…

Samsung showed off the selection baseball for a long time. However, they fell into a swamp of three consecutive losses. 

Samsung formed the starting rotation in the order of David Buchanan, Albert Suarez, Won Tae-in, Baek Jung-hyun, and Yang Chang-seop. It creaked from the start. Buchanan, who was in charge of starting the opening game for three consecutive years, suffered a loss with 8 hits, 5 strikeouts and 4 runs in 5 innings against NC on the 1st.안전놀이터

Suarez, who started a sortie against NC on the 2nd, collapsed with 9 hits (1 home run), 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and 6 runs in 3 innings. Although it avoided defeat, it was far from what it had shown so far. 

Won Tae-in started as a starting pitcher against Hanwha in Daegu on the 4th and recorded 3 runs in 5 innings (4 hits, 4 walks, 3 strikeouts). He got off to a shaky start by giving up 3 runs in the first inning, but pitched well afterwards with 4 scoreless innings.

Lefty Baek Jeong-hyun hung his head in a home game against Hanwha on the 6th with 2 innings, 5 hits, 3 walks, 2 strikeouts and 5 runs. He suffered his first loss of the season with 5 runs. 

Buchanan, who showed deep regret in the first appearance of the season, properly showed what an ace is in the game against LG in Jamsil on the 8th. He gave up the first run in the first inning, but kept the mound until the 8th inning, effectively blocking the opponent’s batting line with one run.

From the 3rd inning, he achieved a three-way withdrawal for 5 consecutive innings, and in the 8th inning, Park Dong-won hit to the middle right and Moon Seong-joo hit the ball, putting him in a crisis at 1st and 2nd base, but Kim Hyun-soo handled a fly ball in left field and prevented a run. Although he did not become a winning pitcher, Ace’s return is good news.  

But the other line couldn’t support it. In the ninth inning, with one out and bases loaded, Kim Seong-yoon’s center fielder sacrifice fly only scored one point. In the end he lost 1-2. Since the game against Hanwha in Daegu on the 6th, they only scored 4 points during the 3rd consecutive loss. He tried to change the batting order ahead of the match against LG on the 8th, but the expected results did not come out. 

Samsung, which has fallen into a swamp of three consecutive losses, announced Suarez as the starting pitcher on the 9th. Against this, LG puts forward Adam Plutko, who has 15 wins. Suarez’s good pitch is important, but firepower support must be provided so that he can exert his strength on the mound.

No matter how well a pitcher throws, if the other line is not supported, baseball cannot be won. /what@osen.co.kr
