Three straight losses without an ace… Samsung Lions’ slump continues

With their third straight loss, the Samsung Lions are now 3-7 in their last 10 games, tied with the Kiwoom for the worst recent record among the 10 teams.

In the second game of the 메이저놀이터 weekend’s three-game series at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the afternoon of the 27th, the Samsung Lions fell to the KT Wiz 5-2 after giving up consecutive runs in the second, third, and fourth innings, despite starting Ace Buchanan.

Buchanan, who was largely responsible for snapping the losing streak, gave up five runs in four innings of double-digit hitting to take his third loss of the season, while the bats continued to be extremely silent and weak at the plate with just four hits.

Koo Ja-rook, who batted first, was replaced midway through the game after feeling unwell, while Pirela and Oh Jae-il were silent in the middle of the order, and only Kang Min-ho could manage a single among the expected hitters.

There was also the disappointment of a well-hit ball in the bottom of the fifth inning that was caught by the opposing defense and ended up as a walk-off hit, but the silence of the batters and the overall lack of focus keeps Samsung in a precarious fourth-place position and in seventh place.

With over 10,000 fans in attendance for the second night in a row but no wins, and desperate to end the losing streak at home, Samsung will look to turn things around by starting Won Tae-in in the final game of the three-game series over the weekend.
