There was a ‘desperate message’ from Koo Ja-wook to retake Samsung’s second place…”Thank you to the fans who sang El Dorado hard.”

“The message has been sent to the squad that if the captain hits, he can win.”

The Samsung Lions escaped two consecutive losses with a 2-1 away victory against the 2024 Shinhan Bank SOL Bank KBO League LG Twins at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 27th.

Samsung, which had 44 wins, 34 losses and one draw after winning the match, successfully retook the second place in the league, beating LG (44 wins, 35 losses, two draws) by half a game.

On the day, Samsung starter Lee Seung-hyun displayed quality pitching of four hits, no runs allowed, and three strikeouts in six innings, resulting in his fourth quality start and six wins of this season. Lim Chang-min (no run), Kim Jae-yoon (one run), and Oh Seung-hwan (no run) also played their part.

Lee Seung-hyeon’s pitching was remarkable. Following the quality start, he displayed a surprise pitching without allowing even a single goal, playing the biggest role in Samsung’s comeback to second place.

At the bottom of the first inning, Lee continued his clean pitching. He grounded out to center fielder Hong Chang-ki and pitcher Shin Min-jae, and struck out Kim Bum-suk to secure a three-out inning.

In the bottom of the second inning, Lee Seung-hyun faced a crisis due to Kang Min-ho’s consecutive foils. Lee, who was on the verge of hitting the second and third bases with two outs and Kang Min-ho’s foils overlapping after Austin’s walk, Kang Min-ho’s foil, and Kim Joo-sung’s walk, overcame the crisis by treating Park Hae-min as a foul fly to the left field.메이저사이트

In the bottom of the third inning, Lee Seung-hyun, who was driven to first and second bases with two outs by allowing hits to Hong Chang-ki and Kim Bum-seok after one out, struck out Austin, the fourth batter, and finished the inning without losing a point again.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, when Samsung took a 1-0 lead, Lee Seung-hyun gave up a left-handed hit to Koo Bon-hyuk after one out, but he grounded Kim Joo-sung to second base and Park Hae-min to center field.

Lee was also good in the bottom of the fifth inning. He gave up a big hit to Hong after one out, but Kim also grounded out to the second base after Shin Min-jae hit a fly ball to the left field.

Lee Seung-hyun was also perfect in the bottom of the sixth inning. Starting with Austin’s swing and strikeout, he handled first baseman Park Dong-won’s foul fly and second baseman Koo Bon-hyuk’s fly balls, and made a quality start (pitching for less than three runs in six innings) before leaving the mound.

After the game, Samsung manager Park Jin-man praised Lee Seung-hyun, saying, “Lee Seung-hyun played his role perfectly as a starter in a difficult game that led to two consecutive wins in the series, and the bullpen also erased their respective innings to end the victory.”

In the Samsung lineup, Koo Ja-wook scored a multi-hit RBI and one run, and Kim Ji-chan scored one hit, one walk and two steals.

Coach Park said, “In the batting line, Kim Ji-chan showed his value as a good runner by making the opponent’s infield uncomfortable by making third base and third base,” adding, “Koo Ja-wook was able to prevent a series sweep by making an additional RBI that he was desperate for and delivering a message to the entire team that ‘if the captain hits it, he can win’.”

Finally, coach Park Jin-man said, “I would like to thank the fans for singing El Dorado by filling up the third base every game despite the weekday series.”

Meanwhile, Samsung will have a “Park Byung-ho – Oh Jae-il Match” with the KT Wiz on Wednesday at KT Wiz Park in Suwon. Samsung will have Jenny Reyes on the mound, while KT Wiz will have Joey-hyeon as the starting pitcher.
