‘Round and round’ again Woo Kyu-min and Oh Seung-hwan… The current address of the ‘Samsung bullpen’ that did not laugh even in a come-from-behind victory

 Samsung could not smile widely even after ending its losing streak. It was a game that somehow left me with regret.

Samsung won 11-9 in the home game against SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 13th and escaped from a six-game losing streak.

In the beginning of the game, the flow was smooth. In the first inning, thanks to Jose Pirella’s first two RBIs and timely hits and Kim Dong-yeop’s three runs, they scored a large number of five runs. At the end of the 3rd inning, when the team was leading 5-3, Oh Jae-il and Kim Dong-yeop’s back-to-back home run broke SSG starter Park Jong-hoon. 

The atmosphere became strange when SSG caught up with Hanyu Island’s one RBI and timely hit. The gap that once widened to 5 points was reduced to 3 points. After starter Yang Chang-seop (2⅔ innings), Lee Sang-min (1⅔ innings), left-hander Lee Seung-hyun (1 inning), and right-hander Lee Seung-hyun (1⅔ innings), Samsung had to take out the Pil Seung-jo card.

Woo Kyu-min, who took the mound with 2 outs, 1st and 3rd base in the 7th inning, took a breather by treating Jeon Eui-san as a grounder on 2nd base, but the crisis was not over.

In the 8th inning, Kang-Min Kim, Tae-Gon Oh, and Ji-Hoon Choi were allowed hits in turn, causing a crisis with the bases loaded safely. Following a foul fly by Choi Jeong, the follow-up hitter, the Samsung bench called closer Oh Seung-hwan.

Oh Seung-hwan was hit by a double by Choi Joo-hwan, who came in aiming for the first pitch. In the meantime, all the runners on the base came home and tied the score. Subsequent hitter Guillermo Heredia hit an RBI double and SSG succeeded in reversing.

Samsung quickly balanced with Ja-wook Koo’s solo gun in the 8th inning. Oh Jae-il’s 1 RBI double hit the lead again, and Kim Dong-yeop’s 1 RBI hit hit a wedge. Oh Seung-hwan, who faced a dizzying moment in the 8th inning, finished the game with difficulty, taking responsibility for 3 out counts in the 9th inning.

At the time the two players took the mound, there were more than two runners on the base. In the case of Oh Seung-hwan, he was tasked with catching 5 out counts. Even if the bullpen was started early due to the sluggish performance of starter Yang Chang-seop, who could not even fill 3 innings, the burden on the ‘veteran duo’ was considerable.

Woo Kyu-min and Oh Seung-hwan did not live up to expectations. Woo Kyu-min, who continued his scoreless march after the opening, dedicated his first run of the season in 4 games. Oh Seung-hwan, who became a losing pitcher in the game against the LG Twins on the 8th, the previous appearance, also left a disappointing appearance in his first appearance in 5 days.

In other words,카지노사이트 this is also evidence of Samsung’s high dependence on a particular pitcher.

There is not much time left to entrust the second half of the game to Woo Kyu-min, who is in his late 30s, and Oh Seung-hwan, the oldest pitcher in the league. Although the problem has been pointed out many times, Samsung still has not been able to find an answer.

Now, they need to find a pitcher to succeed them. Although some pitchers have been away for reasons such as military service, there is no excuse for lack of bullpen resources. Fans want a clean victory not only in the result but also in the process.
