The match was decided with a clear cannon. ‘Samsung legend’ Lee Seung-yeop received a spotlight in that it was the first Daegu expedition he visited as a coach, but it was Samsung who laughed at the game.
Samsung, led by manager Park Jin-man, won a 7-6 come-from-behind victory thanks to Oh Jae-il (37)’s come-from-behind home run in the bottom of the 7th inning against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League visiting game held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 27th.
It was completely pushed back in the starting matchup, but it was a game that reminded me of the saying that baseball is not over until it is over.
It was a game that attracted a lot of attention before the game. If the previous day’s game was the first Rafac expedition that ‘Samsung Legend’ Lee Seung-yeop visited as a manager, and was in the spotlight, on this day Samsung sent infielder Lee Won-seok to Kiwoom Heroes and traded pitcher Kim Tae-hoon, and Doosan shook off the ‘school violence controversy’ and entered the first team. Kim Yoo-seong, who posted his name, drew attention.
Both teams put forward 5 starting pitchers. Pil-jun Jang of Samsung and Dong-joo Kim of Doosan were the first to step onto the mound. The key was how well the other line would attack them.
Doosan has Su-Bin Jung (Center fielder) – Soo-Haeng Jo (Right fielder) – Seok-Hwan Yang (1st baseman) – Jae-Hwan Kim (DH) – Eui-Ji Yang (Catcher) – Jose Rojas (Left fielder) – Seung-Ho Kang (2nd baseman) – Jae-Suk Ahn (Shortstop) – Gyeong-Min Heo (3rd baseman) and the Samsung batting order was Kim Ji-chan (2nd baseman) – Jose Pirella (left fielder) – Koo Ja-guk (right fielder) – Kang Min-ho (catcher) – Oh Jae-il (1st baseman) – Lee Jae-hyeon (shortstop) – Kim Young-woong (3rd baseman) – Cho Min-seong (designated hitter) – Kim Seong-yoon (center fielder) formed the starting lineup.
While Kim Dong-ju gave up 3 runs (2 earned) in 6 innings, Jang Pil-joon fell short of expectations. He collapsed, allowing 5 runs in 2 innings. The three-run homer given to Kang Seung-ho in the top of the second inning was painful.
Lee Jae-hee’s good pitching with 1+1 was encouraging. In four innings, he pitched a scoreless pitch with two hits, one walk, and one loss, laying the foundation for a come-from-behind victory.
In the third inning, Pirella’s two-run home run hit. It was a more welcome cannon because it had been sluggish in the meantime. One more run was scored in the 5th inning, but Yang Seok-hwan’s solo home run in the top of the 7th widened the score to 3-6. In fact, it seemed that Doosan was winning.
A cannon shot led the match into the labyrinth again. In the bottom of the 7th inning, cracks in the game began to appear. Kim Ji-chan walked, and Pirella set a table for 1st and 2nd base with a heavy hit. From the second out to Kang Min-ho, he walked with a walk, and the runner was loaded with bases. Oh Jae-il at bat. Samsung’s new captain welcomed the season with much expectation, but expectations were not high because it was Oh Jae-il, who suffered more stagnation with a batting average of 0.176 for the season and a batting average of 0.143 in the last 10 games. In addition, setup man Jeong Cheol-won, who was the rookie of the year and wore the Taegeuk mark, appeared on the mound.
bang. Oh Jae-il kicked Jeong Cheol-won’s fastball with a speed of 148 km per hour, and the batted ball became a grand slam with a flight distance of 124 m over the deepest wall in the center.
1 point lead situation.안전놀이터 Kim Tae-hoon, a transfer student, climbed the mound. Before the game, he appeared on the mound with a special mission, saying, “I am confident that I can throw well when I get on the mound,” though he was “strange”. Heo Gyeong-min, the lead hitter, was caught with a left fielder fly ball, Song Seung-hwan a center fielder fly ball, and Jo Soo-haeng a shortstop ground ball.
