It was a defeat for Samsung that clearly demonstrated the common baseball saying, ‘You can’t win with three double plays.’
In the final game of the three-game series against the Lotte Giants during the week held at Munsu Baseball Stadium in Ulsan on the 7th, the Samsung Lions suffered a 1-2 loss in overtime due to the batting lineup’s frustration despite starter Won Tae-in’s good pitching.스포츠토토
Samsung got off to a clean start in the first inning by taking the lead with Koo Ja-wook’s timely hit to break up a scoring situation created by Kim Seong-yoon’s hit and stolen base, and starting pitcher Won Tae-in gradually continued the lead with a scoreless pitch until the sixth inning, but the batting lineup remained silent at every opportunity. Let’s play the game.
After scoring the first run in the first inning, starting with Kang Min-ho’s double play with one out and a runner on first base, double plays were made in each of the third and fifth innings, putting a heavy burden on Won Tae-in’s shoulders.
Even after getting on base due to an opponent’s error in the second inning, Oh Jae-il struck out and Pirella failed to steal a base, and even though he sent out a runner in the fourth inning, he was unable to score a run. Samsung scored only one run despite getting on base every inning from the first to the fifth inning. The sense of crisis grew as they were unable to solve the game on their own.
After allowing the game to be tied in the bottom of the 7th inning, Samsung was unable to score despite creating a chance in the top of the 11th inning. In the end, Oh Seung-hwan, who came on the mound in the bottom of the 11th inning, got 2 outs, but gave up a walk and a hit. In a crisis, they allowed a walk-off hit to Lotte Yoo Kang-nam, 1 win, 2. The series ends with a loss.
Samsung’s batting line, which showed signs of strength at the start of the second half of the season, has recently cooled off, making it difficult to concentrate on the game, and the team atmosphere seems to have slowed down again.
Samsung, burdened with both disappointment and fatigue due to defeat after a long overtime match, moves to Jamsil and faces the Doosan Bears in a four-game series, including a double header, and with the gap in the starting lineup growing, Kim Dae-woo takes charge of the team in crisis as a temporary starter.
