Connor started Game 11 of the season against the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League SSG at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 20th and won his sixth game of the season by allowing five hits, one strikeout, eight strikeouts and one run in seven innings. This is the second time Connor has pitched more than seven innings since the match against Munhak SSG (three runs and two earned runs in seven innings) on the 16th of last month.

He pitched 102 fastballs (71 strikes and 31 balls), followed by fastballs (54), sliders (22), cutter (14), and change-up (12). He displayed the highest speed of fastballs at 153 km/h.

Corner smoothly played the game. He tied the game with three strikeouts in the top of the first inning, and continued to make six consecutive poor hitters until the top of the second inning. In the crisis with runners on first and second bases with one out in the top of the third inning, he overcame the crisis by hitting both Jihoon Choi and Choo Shin-soo.

Corner, who blocked a scoreless fifth inning following the top of the fourth inning, faced a crisis due to a hit by leadoff hitter Jihoon Choi in the top of the sixth inning. After Choo’s grounder, he made a wild pitch and was driven to the third base with one out. Corner tried to maintain his composure and finished the inning by striking out Choi Jeong and Guillermo Herredia one after another.

Connor faced his biggest crisis since the beginning of the seventh inning with consecutive hits by Han Yu-seom and Lee Ji-young. However, he lost no point again this time. Connor induced Jung Joon-jae to ground out to the second base after Park Sung-han, a follow-up batter with no outs and runners on the first and second bases, and Oh Tae-gon grounded out to shortstop to secure the inning. Connor ended the inning without allowing a single run and headed to the dugout, expressing his delight, and handed over the mound to Kim Jae-yoon ahead of the top of the eighth inning.

After the game, Connor said, “I think the ability to throw a lot of strikes was a big factor in achieving the quality start plus,” adding, “I was able to overwhelm hitters with high balls and sweepers, and I think that’s why I got good results.”

“The top of the seventh inning was a very difficult inning, so after filling the last out count, I was so happy that I unknowingly cheered,” he said, adding, “I was able to cheer up until the end thanks to the support of passionate fans even in hot weather.”

Corner was sluggish with two wins and two losses in 35 ⅓ in seven games until April since the opening of the regular season. He seemed to rebound with two wins and two losses and a 2.89 ERA in 28 innings in five games in May, but the big ups and downs were the problem. Corner was somewhat sluggish with eight runs in four ⅔ against Kiwoom in Gocheok on the 8th, and even though he became a winning pitcher against NC in Changwon on the 14th, he left four runs in six innings, including three homers. Samsung, which is looking beyond fall baseball, had no choice but to worry deeply.

It remains to be seen whether Connor’s rise will continue, but if Connor does his part in every game like this day, the entire team will be able to ease its worries a little. Samsung manager Park Jin-man praised Connor, saying, “Connor showed the best speed and best pitching since his debut in Korea, showing the team’s first starter.”

Connor said, “I try to pitch as aggressively as possible in every game. Regardless of the pitch type, I try to put strikes in the zone, so I’ve been managing the number of pitches well lately and I think I can handle long innings.”
