The Samsung Lions of the Korean Baseball Organization played a seven-game series in Ulsan and Jamsil last week, one more game than usual…

First of all, how was the midweek three-game series against Lotte in Ulsan?


Yes, the first game of the midweek against Lotte was a game that once again showed the difficulties Samsung is having with their lack of starting pitching.

We put Choi Chae-heung, who had lost four games without a single win this season, back in the starting lineup, and he again got into trouble early on.

Similar to his start against NC on the 1st, he gave up a ton of runs in the first inning.

After giving up back-to-back singles to Yoon Dong-hee and Jung-hoon, he walked Ahn Chi-hong with the bases loaded and gave up a sacrifice fly to Yoo Kang-nam for a three-run homer.

In four innings, he gave up five runs on nine hits, including one home run and two walks, and was pulled early.

Samsung had been struggling to find a spot for one of its five starting pitchers since before opening day.

They tried Yang Chang-seop, Jang Pil-joon, Choi Chae-heung, and others, but none of them were able to find their groove, and it looks like they’ll be struggling until the end of the season.

After losing the lead early in the game, Samsung eventually dropped the first game 3 to 10.

Game 2 was won.

Widener got the start and pitched well, allowing two runs in 5.1 innings.

Widener, a transfer from NC, is sometimes referred to as a “fondant fondant” pitcher because he has been up and down from game to game.

He was announced as the starter for the game against Kiwoom last month on the 31st, but didn’t show up due to a cold and body aches, but he came back well-rested and pitched the game to win.

Then there’s Koo, who led the team in batting average in the high teens last month before slumping to a sub-teens average this month, but came back to life with two hits and three RBIs.

Trailing 2-1 in the top of the seventh inning, with runners on first and third after singles by Kim Ji-chan and Kim Sung-yoon, Goo Ja-rook hit a two-run double to make it 3-2.토토사이트

With momentum on their side, Samsung added four more runs in the eighth inning to win game two 7-2.

Game 3 was a game in which Won Tae-in showed off the majesty of his homegrown ace.

He pitched a perfect game until the sixth inning, but after giving up a triple to Gudrum in the seventh, a fielding error by Oh Jae-il cost him the win.

The offense was unable to score any runs in the first inning, except for a single by Kim Sung-yoon and Koo Ja-rook.

The seventh and eighth innings were shut down by right-hander Lee Seung-hyun, but in the bottom of the ninth, back-to-back singles by Kim Tae-hoon loaded the bases and threatened to end the game, but substitute pitcher Lee Jae-ik struck out Yoo Kang-nam to send the game into extra innings.

Despite having the bases loaded in the 11th, they were unable to score, and in the bottom of the 11th, Oh Seung-hwan gave up the game-winning hit to Yoo Kang-nam with runners on first and second.

The loss put them four games behind seventh-place Lotte.


Over the weekend, you played a four-game series against Doosan at Jamsil Stadium, right?

Especially that one was a doubleheader, how was it overall?


Yes, Samsung played a four-game weekend series against Doosan starting on the 8th.

The first game of the weekend was a very intense game.

In the ninth inning, when we were winning 7-6, Kim Tae-hoon walked Doosan leadoff hitter Kim Jae-hwan, and a sacrifice bunt by Lee Yoo-chan moved Doosan pinch-hitter Kim Tae-geun to second base, and the next batter, Kang Seung-ho, singled up the middle to tie the game at 7-7.

Park Jun-young then walked Park Kye-beom with runners on first and second, but the ball hit third baseman Ryu Ji-hyuk’s glove and bounced off the foul line, allowing Kang Seung-ho to score from second base to make it 7-8.

Samsung failed to score on a bases-loaded opportunity in the top of the ninth, while Doosan scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth to turn the game around.

The team then played two games in one day, starting at 2 p.m. In the first game, they won 5-1 behind Buchanan’s no-hitter and Oh Jae-il’s two-run double.

Buchanan pitched eight innings, allowing one run on seven hits to earn his 10th win of the season.

It was Buchanan’s fourth consecutive double-digit win season in the KBO since joining Samsung in 2020.

Buchanan is the 31st pitcher in the KBO to win 10 or more games in four consecutive seasons and the first foreign pitcher for Samsung.

Jang Won-jun started for Doosan, and after Pirela singled up the middle in the top of the second inning, Oh Jae-il hit a cool two-run shot.

Oh added a home run 14 days after his last one against Kiwoom on June 26, marking his ninth straight season of double-digit home runs.

Oh Seung-hwan came in with runners on first and second in the bottom of the ninth inning with a 5-1 lead and retired both batters to earn his 24th save of the season.

In the second game of the doubleheader, the Doosan offense was stymied by Doosan starter Brandon and didn’t score until the seventh inning.

The Doosan bats, on the other hand, scored three runs in the third inning on RBI singles by Kang Seung-ho and Yang Seok-hwan, and added one more in the eighth.

Samsung was unable to capitalize on balls hit by Hong Gun-hee in the eighth inning and Jung Chul-won in the ninth inning for Doosan, and lost 0-4.

In yesterday’s game, the Samsung bats also failed to capitalize on Doosan’s foreign starting pitchers.

They didn’t score a run until the fifth inning against Alcantara.

On the pitching side, Choi Chae-heung, who started the game, gave up three runs on three hits in the second inning, and Noh Gun-woo, who replaced him in the fifth inning, gave up a three-run homer to Yang Seok-hwan to make it 6-0.

We scored a run in the sixth on an error, but changed pitcher Lee Jae-ik gave up back-to-back singles and then another two runs on a single by Rojas to make it 8-7, and despite scoring a run in the eighth, we lost, winning once and losing three of the four games against Doosan.

In the three-game series against Lotte, they won one and lost two, so their record in the seven-game series last week was 2-5, a complete reversal of the momentum they showed in the second half of the season.

While Samsung was slumping like this again, Hanwha won a whopping six straight games.

Samsung dropped from 8th place to 9th place.

They’ve also lost ground on Hanwha, now trailing by three games.
