With El Dorado back, Samsung storm sprints, 2 consecutive wins → 1 draw → 8 losses → 18 wins, 5 losses, is this true…I can see the tiger on top

It is the third time among the 10 teams in the fifth consecutive Winning Series.안전놀이터

Won Tae-in, who has been displaying overwhelming performance in the early days of this season, pitched six innings of three hits and one run (non-earning). With five consecutive wins, he lowered his earned run average (ERA) from 2.10 to 1.79. In addition, the bullpen pitcher Lim Chang-min, Kim Jae-yoon, and Oh Seung-hwan, which Samsung trusted, blocked Doosan’s batters with one run in three innings.

The batting line-up also exploded. He had 13 hits on and off. Kim Young-woong, who is bursting with potential, had three hits and one RBI along with his first triple since his debut, Lee Jae-hyun, who had been slowing down recently, had one hit and one RBI, and Kim Jae-sang, Koo Ja-wook and Ryu Ji-hyuk also added strength to the batting line-up with multi hits.

There is no stopping Samsung from speeding up in recent months. Samsung won both the opening two consecutive games against the KT Wiz, successfully sweeping the opening series for the first time in 15 years. With Eldorado revived in seven years, the team is set to have a hot season.

However, he faltered afterwards. After winning two consecutive games, he had no win but had one draw and eight losses in nine games. From one draw and two losses to the LG Twins, three consecutive losses to the SSG Landers, two consecutive losses to the Kiwoom Heroes, and a loss to the first away game in Gwangju, there was no sign of improvement.

Then, things started to change on April 6. It escaped from its eighth consecutive loss against KIA, which was a starting point for its rebound. Starting with taking the away win series in Gwangju, the team succeeded in winning five consecutive games until the game against Doosan. Naturally, the team garnered the most wins in the league with 18 wins and five losses and a 0.783.

While he had 18 wins and five losses, his team’s batting average is also hot. He is the only player with a batting average of over .300 (0.303). He also ranks first in the league with a 3.12 ERA.

Even individuals see him hot. Won has garnered five consecutive wins and an earned run average of 0.89. Foreigners such as Conor Seabold and Denny Reyes are also recovering, while left-handers Lee Seung-hyun and Lee Ho-sung are also showing good performance. David McKinnon ranks second with a batting average of 0.416 after SSG Landers Guillermo Herredia (0.426) and Koo is fifth with a batting average of 0.366. This has enabled Samsung fans to listen to Eldorado’s cheerleading songs as much as they want.

Ranking No. 1 ranking is no longer a dream, which felt distant from the past. It is only two games away from KIA (22 wins and 11 losses). The team will play a weekend series in Daegu from May 3 to May 5, and its opponent is the Lotte Giants at the bottom. As the team has a pleasant memory of sweeping the first three consecutive matches of this season, it is worth looking forward to again this time.
