Oh Seung-hwan, born in 1982, who set a new record for the oldest 700G, said, “The most memorable game is…”

Oh Seung-hwan, the “final leader” of the Samsung Lions in professional baseball, won his 22nd save of the season in his 700th career appearance game and became the sole leader in this category.

Oh Seung-hwan took the mound in the ninth inning with a 7-4 lead in the home game against the Doosan Bears at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 21st and neatly erased one inning.

Oh Seung-hwan, who struck out rookie with a fork ball in the seventh pitch with a pinch-hit ball performance and a ball count of 2B-2S, easily secured the second out count by handling Jung Soo-bin with a fly ball to center field.노래방알바

With two outs and no runners, he guided foreign hitter Henry Ramos to right field to a fly to secure his team’s victory. Samsung defeated Doosan 7-4 and became its lone No. 2 after a three-game winning streak since the game against the Daegu SSG on Wednesday. Oh garnered his 22nd save of this season, rising to No. 1 in this category, beating over Jung Hae-young (KIA).

Having overpowered batters with heavy fastballs called “fastball,” Oh changed his pitching pattern by increasing the ratio of breaking balls to pitches. Manager Park Jin-man stressed that Oh should emulate him, who is not afraid of changes.

“We have strengthened our pitching staff ahead of this season, but the one we can trust the most is Oh Seung-hwan. He needs to make changes according to circumstances as his speed is weaker than when he was younger, but Oh is a great pitcher but has chosen to make changes. I hope veteran players in his team will not be afraid and try to make changes,” coach Park Jin-man said.

“Personally, I’m happy to be able to keep my 700 games and my team’s victory,” Oh said, setting a career record of 700 games for the 15th time in his career. “I remember every moment of the 700 games, but I remember the 400 saves the most.”

Oh Seung-hwan also said, “The save record depends on the game situation, but I think the game record is very meaningful as a player,” adding, “The bullpen pitcher is a position that he has to go out at any time, and durability and health are important to play in many games.”

“Playing in 700 games means that I played a lot for the team. It’s a very meaningful record,” said Oh, who set a new record of playing in 700 games (41 years, 11 months and six days).

Oh continued, “Today’s record is all thanks to the fans who supported us until the end of the game. I ask you to support us until the end of the game in the remaining games.”
