‘The defense is too much’ Buchanan, KKKKKKKKKK reverse fight, 6⅔ innings 5 ​​runs lost

Samsung Lions David Buchanan (34) played a counterattack, but was caught by allowing a large number of runs in the first inning. 

Buchanan started the match against Kiwoom Heroes in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 20th and recorded a loss in 6⅔ innings, 9 hits, 2 walks, 9 strikeouts and 5 runs (4 earned).

In the first inning, when Samsung led 1-0, Buchanan, who was hit with a triple by lead batter Kim Hye-seong, was in danger of conceding a run in an instant. After striking out Lee Jung-hoo, Lee Hyung-jong’s fly ball hit center fielder Lee Seong-gyu’s glove went in and out, resulting in a double. Buchanan, who was on the verge of losing the bases with one run out after giving up a walk to Edison Russell, was hit with a sweeping 3 RBI double by Kim Hui-jip and allowed a 1-4 comeback. Afterwards, both Park Joo-hong and Kim Dong-heon struck out and prevented additional runs.

Buchanan, who was hit by Kim Hye-seong in the second inning with one out, ended the inning by treating both Lee Yong-gyu and Lee Jung-hoo as a hit. The 3rd and 4th episodes were all neatly organized with a tripartite crime. 

Buchanan, who was hit by lead batter Kim Tae-jin in the 5th inning, faced a crisis with two outs loaded with a sacrifice bunt by Lee Yong-kyu, a walk by Lee Jung-hoo, and a hit by Russell. However, this time, Kim Hui-jip was treated as a floating ball in right field, and he did not concede. 

Buchanan, who recorded a tripartite withdrawal in the 6th, climbed the mound in the 7th as well. However, he started the inning with a hit by lead batter Kim Tae-jin. Lee Yong-kyu’s second baseman’s ground ball led to second baseman Kim Ji-chan’s runner, and Lee Jeong-hoo struck out, but Lee Hyung-jong’s hit ball resulted in a third baseman’s throw error, leading to a crisis with 2 out 1st and 2nd base. That’s right, I made a mistake. Buchanan, who recorded 103 pitches, was eventually replaced by Choi Choong-yeon and finished the mound that day. Choi Choong-yeon caught Kim Hwi-jip and overcame the crisis without conceding any additional points. Samsung lost 1-6, ending a three-game winning streak. 안전놀이터

On this day, Buchanan used cutter (40 pitches), changeup (28 pitches), curve (17 pitches), two-seam (11 pitches), and fastball (7 pitches). The highest fastball speed was up to 155 km/h. The cutter also demonstrated its power by recording 147 km. 

However, Buchanan was not helped by the defense. In the first inning, Lee Hyung-jong’s batted ball was officially recorded as a double, but center fielder Lee Seong-gyu caught the batted ball but failed to catch it to the end, which was a regrettable mistake. Even in the process of conceding runs in the 7th inning, third baseman Lee Won-seok’s throwing error provided an excuse.
