Ja-Wook Koo’s solo shot on a triple to lead the first run Samsung avenges defeat to KT the previous day

Koo Ja-wook hit a solo home run in the third inning on a triple that opened the scoring.

The Samsung Lions avenged the previous day’s overtime loss to KT Wiz with three long hits.

Samsung defeated KT 3-1 in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League home game held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 22nd.

The combination of No. 1 hitter Koo Ja-wook’s hard hitting and starting pitcher Connor Siebold’s pitching pitch was exquisite.

Samsung easily took the lead in the bottom of the first inning with lead Ja-wook Koo’s triple to right-center and No. 2 Kim Tae-hoon’s double to left-center.

Then, with one out and runners on third base, fourth batter Kim Young-woong sent Kim Tae-hoon home with a sacrifice fly, giving Samsung a 2-0 lead.

As KT followed up with a run in the top of the third inning with Bae Jeong-dae’s timely hit following Oh Yoon-seok’s double, Koo Ja-wook drew a left-handed solo arch to make it 3-1 after a shift in offense and defense.

Connor allowed 5 walks and walks, but limited the number of hits to 2 and struck out 9, allowing 1 run over 6 innings.

When Connor threw four balls in a row to leadoff leader Yoon-seok Oh in the top of the seventh inning, Samsung coach Jin-man Park immediately put right-handed bullpen Tae-hoon Kim on the mound and locked him up.

Following Kim Tae-hoon, who overcame the crisis of allowing runs on second and third bases with two outs, Lim Chang-min (8th inning) and Oh Seung-hwan (9th inning) took the mound in turn and defeated KT’s leading edge.

After two outs in the bottom of the 9th inning, KT missed a chance to tie the game at 2nd and 3rd base with Bae Jeong-dae’s hit to right and Mel Rojas Jr.’s double to right field.

KT starting pitcher William Cuevas also lasted 7 innings with 9 strikeouts and 3 runs, but suffered his 5th loss (2 wins) of the season due to lack of batting support. 토토사이트
