“There is no pitcher behind you! You have to block it firmly”

Samsung played the game smoothly until the 8th inning, but left-hander Lee Seung-hyun, who took the mound in the bottom of the 9th inning with a save, struggled against SSG’s final resistance. After sending lead hitter Park Seong-han to first base with a left-handed hit, Oh Tae-gon and Kang Jin-seong were beaten in turn, but Kim Min-sik hit left-handed hits and was driven into a crisis with 2 out 1st and 2nd base.

For Samsung, the nightmare of being unable to keep a 6-1 lead and losing 10-13 in the game on the 24th was inevitable. Anxiety increased as the situation changed to a situation where one did not know how the game would go with a long hit. 

Coach Park Jin-man found a mound here and gave Lee Seung-hyun a sense of responsibility while taking care of him. He saw that only by overcoming the pressure as a closer would he be able to step up both the team and the player.

Prior to the Lotte game on the 27th, manager Park Jin-man said, “When I went to the mound at the bottom of the 9th inning of the SSG game, I didn’t say much. As Lee Seung-hyun is a young pitcher, I tried to give him confidence, and I didn’t give any technical advice.” There is no. We have to block it here.’ Lee Seung-hyun is a player who should play a big role in Samsung in the future, so I said that (strongly).”

After Park Jin-man’s visit to the mound, Lee Seung-hyun got Choo Shin-soo on base with a walk, but the follow-up hitter Choi Ji-hoon struck out three pitches to put an end to the game. Samsung also was able to end the week with a much lighter mind after ending its 5-game losing streak.

Director Park Jin-man said with a satisfied expression, “Seeing Lee Seung-hyun boldly and confidently finish with three balls at the end, I think he will gain some confidence now.”

Samsung is at the bottom of the table, but they are not at the stage of giving up the season yet. It will be easier to prepare a foothold for a rebound only when Lee Seung-hyun takes his place in the Pilseungjoo.

Manager Park Jin-man will continue to entrust Lee Seung-hyun with the save situation in the ninth inning. Oh Seung-hwan will return to the first team entry from the 28th, but Lee Seung-hyun will keep the finishing position.

Manager Park Jin-man added, “In the current situation, left-hander Lee Seung-hyun should go as the closer. Depending on the situation, if Lee Seung-hyun plays consecutively, there may be other pitchers such as Oh Seung-hwan, but Lee Seung-hyun goes as the closer.
