SSG Landers’ ‘young blood’ left-hander Oh Won-seok (22), who is evaluated as ‘post Kim Gwang-hyun’, will challenge for a winning streak.
SSG will face Samsung Lions in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the afternoon of the 11th.
SSG, the ‘defending champion’, has been performing well this season as well. Last weekend, he blew his whistle after winning all three matches against the Hanwha Eagles.
In particular, in the games on the 7th and 8th, everyone was pushed back, but after succeeding in the chase at the end of the game, they showed a terrifying potential to overturn the game in the 10th inning of overtime.
SSG, which is currently in first place with 5 wins and 1 loss, is aiming for a 4th consecutive win against 9th place Samsung (2 wins and 5 losses). The starting card that SSG brings out on this day is Oh Won-seok.
Oh Won-seok, who joined SK Wyverns (now SSG) in 2020, is a player who grows steadily every year. Oh Won-seok, who contributed to the combined championship by pitching well against the Kiwoom Heroes in Game 3 of the Korean Series last year with 1 run in 5⅔ innings, took the starting spot in place of new foreign pitcher Eni Romero, who left due to injury.
The result was a success. Oh Won-seok scored 1 run in 7 innings against the Lotte Giants on the 4th, the first appearance of the season.
At the end of the 7th inning, when SSG was leading 3-1, the game was canceled due to heavy rain, and Oh Won-seok won the ‘7th Rain Cold Game Complete Victory’. It was his first complete game in four years of his debut.
In particular, in the starting match against national ace Park Se-woong, the joy was greater because it was a victory achieved with pitches that did not lose at all.
Oh Won-seok, who started the new season smoothly, is aiming for the second victory of the season against Samsung.
If Oh Won-seok wins, the team can also ride the hot flow at the beginning of the season with a 5-game winning streak.
The player Oh Won-seok will face is another national team pitcher, Won Tae-in (24).
Won Tae-in, who showed a good appearance at the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), started as a starting pitcher in the game against the Hanwha Eagles on the 4th and gave up 4 hits and 4 walks in 5 innings, scoring 3 runs.
He came down the mound qualifying as a winning pitcher, but was stopped before a no-dish due to arson in the bullpen.
Unfortunately, Won Tae-in, who finished his first appearance, is determined to win the second appearance against SSG. In particular,토토사이트 Samsung is in a bad mood with four consecutive losses, so Won Tae-in is desperately needed.
Won Tae-in remembers having a starting match against Oh Won-seok on May 12 last year.
At that time, Won Tae-in became the winning pitcher with 2 runs in 7 innings, and Oh Won-seok became the losing pitcher with 4 runs in 5⅔ innings.
Whether Won Tae-in, who has a good memory from his match against Oh Won-seok and climbs the mound, shows how he performs against SSG’s strong batting line that day will determine whether or not Samsung will break out of the losing streak.
