It is not easy to finish the job.”
Samsung Lions coach Park Jin-man hinted that he would once again appoint left-handed pitcher Lee Seung-hyun as the closer ahead of the away game against the Lotte Giants in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Sajik Stadium on the 28th. I recorded a blown save the day before, but the command tower gave me trust.
On the 27th, Lee Seung-hyun climbed the mound in the ninth inning with a narrow 3-2 lead against Lotte. However, Lee Seung-hyun failed to keep the victory, recording 1 hit, 1 home run, 2 walks and 3 runs in ⅔ innings. He gave up walks to Jeon Jun-woo and Jack Rex, and even committed a wild fight, putting him in a crisis with 1st and 1st and 3rd bases. He had to throw An Chi-hong to handle the ground ball, but gave a home to the runner on third base. And he was hit by a two-run home run by Yoo Gang-nam and became the losing pitcher.
Lee Seung-hyun, who recorded an average ERA of 0.00 with 2 saves in 4⅓ innings in the previous 4 games. He was sluggish against Lotte, but will continue to be put in as a closer.
However, the command tower intends to appoint players flexibly. With Oh Seung-hwan joining, the options have also diversified. Coach Park said, “It is not easy to be the finishing pitcher. Experience is required. It is basic for Lee Seung-hyun to go up in the ninth inning, but when a difficult situation comes, I plan to put Oh Seung-hwan in. The closer needs experience.”메이저놀이터
Oh Seung-hwan, who previously expressed dissatisfaction with the replacement and was ordered to go to the 2nd division, was registered with the 1st division that day. Coach Park welcomed Oh Seung-hwan’s joining, saying, “Oh Seung-hwan is a player who always prepares well. He has done well in the Futures League as well.”
