Kwang-Hyun Kim 10th QS Perfect Fight ‘Samsung Man’ Widener Completely Winning, SSG Samsung Opponent Winning Series, Winning Season Completed

 SSG Landers took the winning series against Samsung in three consecutive weekends with Kim Gwang-hyun’s counterattack. SSG won 4-0 in the 15th game of the season against Samsung at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 13th.

Kim Gwang-hyun blocked the Samsung batting line, which has risen as the 10th quality start of the season with 7 scoreless innings. Choi Jeong’s preemptive and timely hit in the first inning became the final blow. Choo Shin-soo added 2 RBIs with a timely hit in the 7th following a sacrifice fly in the 5th inning, putting a wedge in the game.

With this victory, SSG confirmed its dominance against Samsung this season with 9 wins and 6 losses.

▶I was thinking about using Park Jong-hoon…

SSG started targeting wideners with the lineup of Choo Shin-soo (G) Choi Ji-hoon (right) Kim Kang-min (middle) Choi Jeong (3rd base) Park Seong-han (you) Kim Seong-hyun (2nd base) Hanyu-seom (left) Oh Tae-gon (1st base) Kim Min-sik (4th base).

The Samsung lineup consisted of Kim Hyeon-jun (C), Ryu Ji-hyeok (G), Koo Ja-wook (right), Pirella (left), Kang Min-ho (Four), Kang Han-ul (3rd base), Oh Jae-il (1st base), Lee Jae-hyun (You), Kim Dong-jin (2nd base). Kang Han-wool, who was strong with 3 hits in 3 at-bats including a double against Kim Gwang-hyun, was placed forward in the 5th.

SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said before the game, “I was worried because Kim Gwang-hyun started twice a week. At the same time, he said, “If it’s okay, I’d like to block about 6 innings. I think it will depend on the condition.” In the previous two games against Samsung, the bullpen was heavily consumed. Kim Kwang-Hyun desperately needed a long run.

As if reading the director’s mind, Kim Gwang-hyun made a good fight. He held on to a 3-0 lead by going beyond the 6th inning, giving up 7 innings with 3 hits, 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. 7th win (4 losses) of the season after ending a 2-game losing streak. From June 6, 2018, the streak against Samsung has been extended to 7 consecutive wins.

In the second inning when the score was 0-1, Jae-il Oh hit right hand in the second inning, and Min-ho Kang, the second base runner, was out at home, leaving a regret. In the 4th and 7th innings, Pirella’s two double hits were regrettable.

▶ Aggressive widener, hit and run strategy…

Taylor Widener has an overwhelmingly high strike rate. SSG Landers’ strategy was focused on active attacks.

From the beginning, he aggressively attacked the widener.

After one out in the bottom of the first inning, Choi Ji-hoon hit a triple in the right field. However, he was tagged out by a short distance from third base after being caught in a perfect relay play that led to right fielder Ja-wook Koo, second baseman Dong-jin Kim, and third baseman Kang Han-wool.

A situation in which the atmosphere can subside. After the second death, Kim Kang-min revived the atmosphere with a double in the right field. When Choi Jeong-ui hit right-handed, he stepped home, and the team scored the first point and the 800th point in his personal career. The 46th and oldest (40 years and 11 months) record in KBO history. The previous record was 38 years, 3 months and 20 days, recorded by coach Lee Ho-jun during his active career.

In the bottom of the 2nd inning, SSG created a chance for the 1st and 3rd bases safely with consecutive hits from the lead Kim Seong-hyun and Hanyu-seom, and then the third base runner stepped home to make it 2-0 with Oh Tae-gon’s double hit.

At the end of the 5th inning with a 2-0 lead, Oh Tae-gon, the leader, went to base with a right-handed hit, then stole → sacrifice bunt to make 1 out and 3 base, and then Choo Shin-soo’s sacrifice fly from deep in center field, scoring an additional run and escaping to 3-0.

▶ Aggressive widener, slide step is still a weakness

Taylor Widener, who made his first appearance after transferring to Samsung, left expectations and challenges at the same time.

3 losses (4 wins) of the season with 10 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts and 4 runs in 6⅔ innings of starting.

His aggressive pitching was positive. Out of 82 pitches, 63 were strikes. He threw a mixture of four-seam and two-seam, slider and changeup with a maximum speed of 151 km.먹튀검증

However, the slide step weakness was also exposed.

He allowed a stolen base on the first pitch after being hit by lead Oh Tae-gon in the 5th inning when he was trailing 0-2. He gave up the 3rd on a sacrifice bunt and Choo Shin-soo’s sacrifice fly. Even in the 8th inning, when the score was 0-3, the stolen base was the root of the problem. After one out, Oh Tae-gon went on base with a hit and stole second base again. After 2 shots, Choo Shin-soo’s timely hit broke out and 0-4. It was a scene that exposed the risk of making more unnecessary runs.
