The game is over, but the lights in the baseball field are not extinguished메이저놀이터. The batters of the Samsung Lions, who are struggling with sluggishness, started special batting training against the dark night sky.
Samsung lost 0-3 in the home game against SSG held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 12th. 6 consecutive losses since Daegu Hanwha on the 6th. Starter Baek Jeong-hyun, who made his second appearance of the season, played his role with 4 hits (1 home run), 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and 1 run in 5 innings, but the other line’s concentration was disappointing.
Of course, he wasn’t without scoring opportunities. One shot didn’t explode. In the 3rd inning, after Oh Jae-il and Lee Seong-gyu stepped down due to a fly ball in the outfield, Kim Ji-chan went to the ground with a right-handed hit against SSG starter Moon Seung-won. Ja-wook Koo chose to walk. 2 companies 1st and 2nd base. Pirella went away with a fly ball to right field and failed to score.

Following Oh Jae-il’s right-handed hit in the 5th inning, Lee Seong-gyu was hit by the third baseman and refracted to the left fielder, providing a chance for 1st and 2nd base safely. Kim Ji-chan retreated with a fly in left field, but Koo Ja-wook hit right field and made the bases loaded with one out. However, Pirella and Lee Won-seok were out due to a foul fly by the third baseman and a floating ball by the center fielder, respectively.
After missing three chances to score, Samsung failed to step on first base except for Pirella’s left-handed hit after one out in the eighth inning.
After the game, the Samsung hitters began to hit specially. Special training at night during the regular season, not an exhibition match, is unusual. It means that the will to escape the sluggishness is desperate. The coaches, including batting coach Park Han-i, were with the players and gave advice.
The starting pitchers, who had been sluggish for a while, are now stabilizing. Now, only the other line needs to survive. Manager Park Jin-man also said, “If the knot is untied in offense, the pitching balance will improve. It’s the beginning of the season. It won’t get worse. It will go up in the future.
