Samsung, the ‘bottom’ in professional baseball, stopped ‘Leader’ LG from winning 8 consecutive victories.
In the home game in Daegu on the 4th, Samsung won a 5-4 come-from-behind victory over LG, thanks to Kang Min-ho (38), the 4th hitter, 2 hits and 3 RBIs in 4 at-bats.
Kang Min-ho hit a tying home run (Season No. 13) against LG starter Lee Ji-gang (24) in the bottom of the 4th inning when the score was 1-2 and there was no runner.바카라사이트닷컴
Kang Min-ho turned the game around by hitting a double against LG Yoo Young-chan (26) in the bottom of the 8th inning, when he was trailing 3-4, with 2 out, 2nd and 3rd base.
Finishing pitcher Oh Seung-hwan (41), who took the mound in the top of the 9th inning, ended the inning with a three-way strike, and Samsung finally confirmed the victory.
For LG, it was regrettable in the top of the 8th inning when they failed to steal twice.
In the top of the 8th inning when the score was tied 3-3, Shin Min-jae (27) got a walk and walked out, but the next batter, Kim Hyun-soo (35), was checked and put out.
Afterwards, Kim Hyun-soo hit a home run, so if he stayed still on first base, he could have led 5-3.
Afterwards, LG attempted a double-steal operation in the situation of 2nd, 2nd and 3rd base, but was unable to score additional points as third base runner Jung Joo-hyun (33) was narrow-minded.
This is the first time that Samsung has won against LG since the home game on May 12th.
After that, Samsung was in a state of defeat while playing 5 games with LG.
With this victory, Samsung tasted victory on a Friday for the first time since June 2nd.
Samsung had only 1 draw and 5 losses in their last 6 matches played on Friday.
On the other hand, LG’s recent 7 consecutive wins as well as 4 consecutive wins in visiting games were put on the brakes.
Buchanan (34), who started as the Samsung starter that day, complained of numbness in his right wrist in the top of the 7th inning when the score was tied 3-3 with two outs.
However, he returned the opposing hitter Park Hae-min (33) with a ground ball in front of the pitcher and finally filled 7 innings before going down the mound.
Samsung coach Park Jin-man commented, “Buchanan laid the foundation for victory by pitching like an ace against the top team until the 7th inning.”
Kim Tae-hoon (31), who came to the mound as Samsung’s third pitcher in the beginning of the 8th inning, did not get an out count, but after the second base was checked, he finally caught third base runner Jung Joo-hyun and became a lucky winning pitcher.
7th place Lotte lost 1-4 to 2nd place SSG in the home game of Sajik.
Lotte got 4 walks and 3 hit balls with 2 outs in the bottom of the 5th inning when SSG starter Park Jong-hoon (32) was guarding the mound that day.
However, in the bottom of the 5th inning, Gudrum (31) only scored 1 run with 2nd out, 2nd and 3rd base hits.
Lotte recorded only 2 hits in 12 at-bats (batting average of 0.167) in scoring position that day, leaving 13 bases behind.
KIA defeated Hanwha 9-3 in the home game in Gwangju and recovered 50% win rate with 43 wins, 1 draw and 43 losses.
Hanhwa Noh Si-hwan (23), the leader in home runs, hit his 22nd home run of the season against KIA starter Yoon Young-chul (19) in the top of the 5th inning, but the team lost.
In the beginning of the 4th inning, Yoon Young-chul also hit a 1-run homer from foreign hitter Williams (30), but there were no other runs.
After graduating from Chungam High School, Yoon Young-chul at KIA this year eventually became the winning pitcher with 3 runs in 6 innings, recording 7 wins and 4 losses in the season.
