After watching Schuler’s first-pitch changeup, Koo lined a two-pitch cut fastball into right-centre field for a double. Kang rounded third base and scored. Koo scored when Jose Pirela singled to left.
Koo, who had cooled off a bit in his last 10 games, batting just 2-for-5 (9-for-36), came through with his fixer-upper DNA when his team was in trouble and gave them a valuable win.
Samsung beat KT 6-4 to snap a three-game losing streak dating back to the 25th against Doosan in Jamsil. Starting pitcher Won Tae-in pitched six scoreless innings to earn his third win of the season.
After the game, Koo said, “I actually didn’t feel good hitting. The team was on a losing streak, so I tried to focus more at the plate. As the team’s centre fielder, I try to play even if I don’t feel well,” he said.
“It rained at the beginning of the game today, but we were winning, so I wanted to finish the game. Above all, I’m happy to share the news of the victory with the fans who supported us in the rain,” he smiled.
