The provisional selection card went back to failure, but the match was overturned and two consecutive wins were won. The Samsung Lions defeated the Doosan Bears 7-6 at home on the 27th in Daegu thanks to Oh Jae-il’s come-from-behind Manrupo and newcomer Kim Tae-hun’s finish.
On this day, the Samsung selection was Jang Pil-joon토토사이트. He is from overseas and was one of the 5 starting candidates this season, but he did not join the starting lineup. Yang Chang-seop moved to Long Relief, and Albert Suarez took the temporary starting position after being out of the starting rotation due to personal circumstances.
On the 21st, against the KIA Tigers in Gwangju, he recorded 4 hits, 4 walks and 4 strikeouts in 3 innings. He was impressive with a fast ball that reached up to 150km, but his control was somewhat disappointing. If he threw well on the mound that day, he could have taken off the tag of ‘temporary’.
However, the pitching of Jang Pil-jun (2 innings, 4 hits, 2 walks, 5 runs) was below expectations. He couldn’t block the bottom line. The first inning was scoreless, but in the top of the second inning, two walks led to a crisis with one company on first and second base, and Doosan’s 7th hitter Kang Seung-ho hit a three-run home run. He was driven into a situation where he had to throw the ball into the middle due to an unfavorable ball count with two balls, and the ball went over the fence.
On the other hand, the pitching of Lee Jae-hee, who was classified as a temporary starter along with Jang Pil-joon, was in contrast. After climbing to the mound following Jang Pil-joon, he blocked 4 innings well with 2 hits and no runs. The ball was slower than Jang Pil-jun, but his command was much more stable. In the meantime, Samsung caught up to 3-5 with Pirella’s 2 points and Koo Ja-wook’s timely hit.
Jang Pil-jun was sluggish at the beginning, and Samsung was dragged away, giving up the initiative in the game. However, while Lee Jae-hee and Lee Sang-min fought hard, the batting line gained strength. At the end of the 7th inning, behind 3 to 6, with 2 outs and bases loaded, Oh Jae-il pulled Doosan Jeong Cheol-won’s 148km fast ball and hit a superior home run. Oh Jae-il, who was sluggish while staying in the 10% batting average, overturned the game with a single shot.
The finish was up to Kim Tae-hun, a freshman who wore a Samsung uniform as a trade that day. He took the mound in the top of the ninth inning and kept the victory by blocking the first inning well with a three-way offense.
