Samsung’s batting lineup has recently been on the rise. He scored as many as 30 points in the past five games, scoring 6 points per game. In an interview before the game, coach Park Jin-man said, “In fact, I didn’t think it would be easy in the starting rotation even for the three consecutive SSG games, but I won the winning series.
The batters are reviving in the second half.
Even if you give a score, you have the power to follow it right away. “I think this atmosphere continues to lead to a good flow,” he said.
Samsung’s batters struggled greatly with Kiwoom starter Ariel Hurado’s good pitching. Furado blocked Samsung’s batters by pitching well with five hits, eight strikeouts and one run in 7⅓ innings. However, Samsung hitters began to beat the Kiwoom bullpen when Furado went down the mound. He returned the game to square one by showing his concentration to score two points in the eighth inning and two points in the ninth inning.
In the 12th inning of extra time, even though leadoff hitter Jose Pirella got on base with a double, he was caught in a run-down by Ryu Ji-hyuk’s ground ball at 3rd base with 1 out, but Kim Sung-yoon hit a timely RBI to show his concentration to reverse the game.
However, it was a pity to finish the rest.
