The bullpen’s good pitching relay that stood out in a close game…lead Samsung to a come-from-behind victory

The Samsung Lions broke away from a losing streak with the bullpen pitchers relaying good pitching.

Samsung won 6-4 in the 10th game of the 먹튀검증 season against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 9th, ending a two-game losing streak and recording 40 wins, 1 draw and 56 losses.

Until the middle of the game, Samsung could not guarantee victory. Starting with Jose Rojas’ solo shot at the end of the 4th inning, Jose Pirella and Kim Jae-hwan in the 5th, and Koo Ja-wook in the top of the 6th, a whopping 4 solo shots were fired. In the bottom of the 6th, Doosan again took a 3-2 lead with Yang Seok-hwan’s one RBI and timely hit.

Starting pitcher Won Tae-in went down the mound after giving up runs in three consecutive innings, but Samsung did not collapse easily. The bullpen pitchers who came up next continued the tight flow. Woo Kyu-min, who was in charge of the bottom of the 7th inning, got a heavy hit from Lee Yoo-chan in the 2nd run, but ended the inning easily as a checker when the follow-up hitter, Su-bin Sue, was at bat.

At the beginning of the 8th inning, Kim Seong-yoon’s 1 RBI and a timely hit made Samsung balance 3-3, and at the end of the 8th, Woo Kyu-min replaced Lee Jae-ik on the mound. With a hit by lead hitter Sue-bin Su, Jae-ho Kim’s sacrifice bunt, and Lohas’s ground ball, they became second out and third base, and the Samsung bench chose to play with In-tae Kim instead of Seok-hwan Yang.

At this time, the Samsung bench called Kim Tae-hoon instead of Lee Jae-ik. This season, Kim Tae-hoon’s batting average against left-handed hitters (0.291) was higher than when he met right-handed hitters (0.277). The result is a strikeout. Kim Tae-hoon struck out Kim In-tae as he threw all five balls into the two-seam.

On top of this, the other line tied up the opponent’s error in the top of the 9th inning and scored 3 runs to consolidate the victory, and finisher Oh Seung-hwan kept the lead. Although Kim Min-hyuk sacrificed one point after the crisis of second and third base safely, he got out of the crisis by minimizing the run.

Since June, the bullpen has been drastically shaken, and from the team’s point of view, there were many games in which the opponent gave up victories in vain due to lack of support. However, there are also hopeful elements, such as Oh Seung-hwan gradually finding a sense of stability. Now, it is Samsung that has to continue this trend.
