‘Future of Lion’s Mound’ Won Tae-in broke the team’s losing streak. It was regrettable that Daegu’s 3 home games against the KT Wiz on the 26th and 28th ended with 1 win and 2 losses, but it was a valuable income for Won Tae-in to regain his confidence and confirm Yang Chang-seop’s potential for the 5th starter.
The Samsung Lions lost 1-4 on the 26th due to a lack of cohesion in the other line, and then suffered another defeat on the 27th. David Buchanan (11 hits and 5 runs in 4 innings), the most trusted starter, collapsed and lost 2-5. On the 25th, the loss against the Doosan Bears (3-4) was added, and it fell into a 3-game losing streak.
Although Samsung lost 1 win and 2 losses in 3 consecutive matches against KT, it was not small. The first harvest was when the young ace broke the losing streak and regained confidence. Won Tae-in, who started on the 28th, led Samsung to a 6-4 victory with 6 innings, 3 hits, 6 strikeouts and no runs.
In the match against Doosan on the 23rd, the previous appearance, Won Tae-in crashed with 13 hits and 6 runs in 4⅔innings. Samsung coach Park Jin-man said, “You have to be confident in your own performance and compete with confidence,” and he put his words into practice. He actively competed with batters, and his fast ball with a maximum speed of 150 km was also impressive.
Colleagues also eased the burden of Won Tae-in in the karate. Koo Ja-wook led the attack with 2 hits and 3 RBIs, Kim Dong-jin 3 hits, Pirella 2 hits and 1 RBI, and Kang Min-ho hit a solo home run. In defense, first baseman Oh Jae-il and third baseman Kang Han-ul handled difficult ground balls well in the 5th and 6th innings, respectively, increasing the outcount.안전놀이터
The fact that Yang Chang-seop confirmed the possibility of starting in the 5th was also the harvest of 3 consecutive matches. After failing to live up to expectations in the previous start, Yang Chang-seop quenched himself on the 2nd team stage and showed a remarkable pitch (5 innings, 7 hits, 1 walk, 3 runs) in an opportunity he got again on the 26th. Although he became a losing pitcher, it is an encouraging result considering that the 5 starting candidates have not been able to fill 5 innings in one game.
He was also good at pitching. Of the 91 balls he threw, 59 were strikes. The fast ball came out at a maximum speed of 149 km/h. Samsung coach Park Jin-man also praised after the game, saying, “The use of the lower body has improved and the ball has been well controlled. The ball has gained strength and entered well low,” expressing his intention to put it on the 5th starting test table once again.
