The Samsung Lions succeeded in escaping their losing streak with Baek Jung-hyun’s perfect pitch and the reunited ‘Gulbiz 3 Musketeers’. In the third game of the season against NC held at Changwon NC Park on the 19th, Samsung succeeded in escaping from four consecutive losses with a 5-4 victory.
On the mound, starting pitcher Baek Jeong-hyeon stood at the forefront of escaping from a losing streak with his 3rd win of the season, giving up 1 run in 6 innings. Woo Kyu-min and Hong Jeong-woo laid a stepping stone, and Oh Seung-hwan, the king of the end game, added a save (5 saves) in about a month after the match against Kiwoom on the 18th of last month and kept the victory by 1 point.
The batting line was led by Kim Ji-chan, Kim Hyeon-joon, and Lee Jae-hyun of the reunited “Gulbiz Trio.”
Kim Hyeon-joon’s first game of the season, after recovering from a right-hand haematopoietic fracture. As the lead batter in the second inning, which was 1-1, he pulled NC starter Lee Yong-jun’s 6th pitch, 144 km high, high inside, without hesitation, and went over the right wall. A home run that took the lead back to 2-1.
It was a ball that was like a clothesline with a distance of 110m.
Kim Hyun-joon’s debut home run, which joined in 2021. Hyun-Jun Kim has had no home runs in his last two seasons. In his first at-bat after coming back from injury, he pulled out an unbelievable long hit.
Kim Hyun-joon, who left the team ahead of this season due to a fracture in his right hand, advanced his rehabilitation period and was registered on the roster that day. In his first game of the season, he showed off his strength by going 2-for-4 with 1 RBI and 1 run.
The long-awaited return of a colleague. Kim Ji-chan and Lee Jae-hyeon were also excited. Top hitter Kim Ji-chan led the attack with 2 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 walk and 2 runs.
Lee Jae-hyun, the 8th hitter behind Kim Hyun-joon, also made a big success with 2 hits, 1 RBI and 1 run in 4 at-bats, including his 3rd home run of the season. The Gulbiz trio combined for 2 homers, 6 hits, 4 runs, and 2 RBIs to break a 4-game losing streak. 안전놀이터
The three players who are responsible for the infield and outfield center line. With his light movements, he helped Baek Jeong-hyeon’s good pitching in defense. In particular, Kim Hyun-joon drew attention by stably handling the flying balls that flew a lot.
Manager Park Jin-man said, “First of all, I will place Kim Hyun-joon in the bottom line so he can adapt.” The likelihood of being placed upwards has increased due to the long absence of real combat. Kim Hyun-joon, who was attached to Lee Jae-hyeon in the lower lineup, is expected to play a role in opening up the lineup with Kim Ji-chan as a table setter.
The complete ‘Gulbiz Trio’ reunited. Samsung’s exciting baseball game begins again.
