As the trusted ace collapsed at home in Daegu, the Samsung Lions fell into a three-game losing streak. KT Wiz beat Samsung and ran a 4-game winning streak.
Samsung, which was on a losing streak, started David Buchanan in the match against KT held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 27th. However, Buchanan gave up the lead in the game as he got 11 hits in 4 innings and collapsed with 5 runs.
Ace’s mission is to serve as a bridge to continue the winning streak and a ‘loss streak stopper’ to end the losing streak. For Samsung, which is losing in a row, on the 27th, Buchanan sortied and expected a victory. Buchanan only won one win in four games this month, but his ERA was so powerful that it was 1.73.
However, on this day, Buchanan could not properly block the KT lineup. In the beginning of the second inning, he gave up consecutive hits to Moon Sang-cheol and Oh Yoon-seok, then put both batters out, but Kim Min-hyeok allowed a squeeze bunt and gave him the first run. Kim Sang-soo, who was once in charge of Samsung’s infield, took a hit at the right time and lost one more point.
Even in the top of the third inning, he was hit in a row and was driven to the second and third bases safely. He turned the next two batters into a regular hitter, but Kang Baek-ho, who came on as a pinch hitter, hit him with two RBIs and a double. In the top of the fourth inning, he allowed three hits in a row and gave up another run.
On the other hand, the Samsung batting line only had 4 sporadic hits. KT starter Wes Benjamin (5 innings, 4 hits, 2 walks, 2 runs) was a bit uneasy, but he was unable to attack properly. Kang Min-ho’s solo home run in the bottom of the second inning was the only score he pulled from Benjamin.먹튀검증
There was an opportunity to turn the game around. In the bottom of the 5th inning, Lee Tae-hoon’s walk and Lee Jae-hyun and Kim Hyun-jun’s consecutive hits gave him a chance to secure the bases safely. However, he only added 1 point. Pinch hitter Kang Han-wool struck out and Yoon Jeong-bin chose a push-out walk, but in the ensuing opportunity with a bases loaded, Kim Dong-jin’s batted ball was caught by pitcher Benjamin and led to a double stroke, ending the inning.
