Trade transfer student → 716G veteran → 33-year-old Pil Seung-jo all came out… 7 runs only in 7th inning disaster, couldn’t win
Catastrophe happened again.
The Samsung Lions, led by coach Park Jin-man, lost 2-8 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League KIA Tigers at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 16th and lost 2-8 in the season.
In fact, Samsung took the lead first in the match. In the first inning, he shook Anderson, the opponent’s starter, by bringing 2 runs with 4 hits in a row. Won Tae-in, who started as a starter, blocked 6 innings and 1 run against the KIA lineup. The second half of the game was met without a major crisis.

Won Tae-in passed the mound to Kim Tae-hoon in the beginning of the 7th inning. This is where Samsung’s disaster began. It was important for Kim Tae-hoon, who had been sluggish with an average ERA of 21.00 in May until the game that day, and 3 runs in 0.1 inning against the Daegu LG Twins two days ago, to prepare an opportunity for a rebound.
However, Taehoon Kim was shaken again. He was hit by a double by lead batter Byun Woo-hyuk. Afterwards, Kim Kyu-seong, who entered the main runner, seemed to be overcoming the crisis by treating him as the main runner, but Lee Woo-sung hit another hit. He then gave up a walk to pinch hitter Lee Chang-jin. Pitching coach Jung Hyeon-wook stepped onto the mound and added strength, but Kim Tae-hoon allowed Park Chan-ho to tie the game by one RBI. In the end, he was replaced with Woo Kyu-min.
I believed in the experience of veteran Woo Gyu-min, who played in 716 KBO games. However, Woo Kyu-min’s ball was powerless. He got a 1 RBI come-from-behind hit by Hwang Dae-in, followed by another 1 RBI timely hit by Kim Seon-bin. Woo Kyu-min went down the mound without catching a single out count.

This time, Lee Seung-hyun came up. One of Pil Seung-jo, who has recently been doing well on the Samsung mound. As soon as he came up, he struck out Jong-wook Ko and got off to a good start. However, Choi Hyung-woo added one more timely hit, followed by a shocking three-run gun from Socrates Brito and lowered his head. The long 7th inning ended only after Hong Jong-pyo was treated as a floating ball by center fielder.안전놀이터
Three pitchers came out to block an inning. However, the record was not all good. Kim Tae-hoon gave up 3 runs in 0.1 innings this time, following two days ago, Woo Kyu-min gave up 2 runs on 2 hits in 0 innings, and Lee Seung-hyun recorded 2 runs on 2 hits (1 home run) in 0.2 innings, leaving regret.
After that, I did my best to turn around in the remaining innings, but it was not easy to close the gap that had already occurred.

Samsung had the same experience at the Suwon KT Wiz match held on April 28th. Albert Suarez threw a perfect pitch and went down the mound with an 8-0 lead. However, in the 8th inning alone, he showed a 8-point run. It was a shame because he took victory, otherwise the aftermath might have lasted a long time.
In any case, it is necessary to wash away the sluggishness of 7 runs in the 7th inning and prepare for the game tomorrow (17th). can it bring victory? The starter on the 17th is Suarez.
