Another ‘back show mode’ has become necessary.
Samsung Lions veteran left-hander Baek Jeong-hyeon (36) will try to break the team’s losing streak.
On the 23rd, Baek Jung-hyun will start in the last game of the weekend’s three-game series against KIA held at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju.
Samsung is in crisis. Two starters are missing as a large number of key beasts are injured. In the midst of this, after winning 3 in a row, he lost 3 in a row.
The KIA game in Gwangju on the 21st was painful. After leading 4-2, in the bottom of the ninth, Choi Hyung-woo allowed a 3-run home run to end the game, resulting in a shocking come-from-behind loss. I am more concerned about the collapse of Lee Seung-hyun, the new finisher.
On the 22nd, Won Tae-in lost 2-6, giving up 5 runs in the first inning only. From the 2nd to the 6th inning, he fulfilled his starting mission with good pitching without a run, but the other line missed a decisive chance and lost the power to pursue.
Many players are missing, and the atmosphere is generally chaotic due to changes in positions in the bullpen.
Since it is an away game on Sunday, which ends the week and moves to Daegu, it is desperate to escape from losing streak. Baek Jung-hyun climbs the mound with a heavy sense of responsibility.
The opponent is not formidable. KIA’s first foreign starter is Anderson.
A pitcher who throws a strong ball with an average fastball speed of 147km. It is a whopping 13km difference from the average of 134km Baekjeong-hyeon.
But speed isn’t an issue. In the match against Gocheok Kiwoom on the 18th, Jang Jae-young, an average 149km fireballer, was also defeated easily. 메이저놀이터
The first win of the season with a 6-4 victory. It wasn’t just one win. With elaborate pitching and tempo pitching, he almost rewrote KBO history by not allowing a single player to reach base until after one out in the 8th inning.
A match that once again required Baekshow’s perfect mode. Baek Jeong-hyeon’s perfect pitch is needed more and more as the batting line is not bursting openly.
Baek Jeong-hyun recorded an average ERA of 1.59 and 2 wins and 1 loss with 5 runs (3 ERA) in 17 innings in 3 games against KIA in 2021, when he took a career high. Last year he never met KIA.
Baek Jung-hyun returned to ‘back show mode’ starting from the last Kiwoom match.
Attention is focusing on whether he, who is on a steep upward curve in three appearances this season, will save the team in crisis.
