Thanks to the performance of foreign players, Samsung ran 2 wins in a row after 3 losses in a row.
Samsung, who gave up all three matches in Pohang against Doosan (4th to 6th), won the games on the 8th and 9th after canceling the Changwon NC match on the 7th in the rain. The game was easily resolved as foreign players, who accounted for a large portion of the team’s power, ran all over the place.
David Buchanan, who played the role of a stopper for losing streak this season, climbed the starting mound on the 8th and boasted perfect pitches (2 hits, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts) in 7 innings and succeeded in hunting for 6 wins of the season. Then, Lee Jae-ik and Jang Pil-joon cleaned up one inning each.
Among the batters, Jose Pirella, who went 2 hits in 4 at-bats (1 home run), 3 RBIs and 2 runs, stood out the most. In the first at-bat in the second inning, he withdrew with a fly ball in right field, but took the left-handed solo arch against NC starter Min-hyeok Shin as the lead batter in the fourth inning with a lead of 1-0. 메이저사이트
After getting on base with a hit ball in the 6th inning, he hit a decisive shot in the 7th inning, leading by 5 points. In the second and third base chances created by Koo Ja-wook’s hit and Kang Min-ho’s double, they all were called home when they blew a triple that split the middle right. Ryu Ji-hyeok’s left fielder scored on a sacrifice fly. Samsung defeated NC 8-0 and ended its three-game losing streak.
In the game on the 9th, starter Albert Suarez’s perfect pitch shone. With 6 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts, and no runs, he added a multiplier 29 days after the Daegu Lotte game on the 10th of last month.
Pirella perfectly played the role of ‘best friend’ Suarez’s victory helper. He completed a three-hit game with heavy hits in the second and sixth innings, followed by a double to left field in the seventh inning, and scored one RBI and two runs. Samsung defeated NC 7-0 with the help of Suarez and Pirella.
Samsung, which only won on Sundays for three consecutive weeks, defeated NC for two days in a row thanks to the performance of the foreign trio, not only achieving a winning series but also winning streak. From the 11th, Samsung will play the last 3 wins in a row against KIA in the first half. Attention is focusing on whether it will be able to wash away the regret of having 5 losses without a win in the match against KIA this season. /
