KKKKKKKKK+155km+103 District… However, Samsung’s many wins, Ace, who was confused by Kiwoom, lost 2 seasons → ERA 4.05
Buchanan couldn’t help but laugh.
Samsung Lions Buchanan started the 3rd game of the season against Kiwoom Heroes in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 20th.
Buchanan had appeared in three games before the match and recorded an average ERA of 1-1 with a 3.60 ERA. In recent appearances after the opening game, he allowed 1 run in 8 innings against the LG Twins on the 8th and 5 runs (3 earned) in 7 innings against the Lotte Giants on the 14th, continuing his quality start streak in two consecutive games.
However, the day did not start well. Buchanan’s plan to fill the outcount through quick matches went wrong. He allowed Kim Hye-seong to hit a right-middle triple and Lee Yong-gyu to leave a left-handed hit to tie the game. Only three balls were thrown to the two players.
Afterwards, Lee Jung-hoo threw a fly ball, but center fielder Lee Seong-gyu made a disappointing play in Lee Hyung-jong’s at-bat. It was possible to handle it with a floating ball, but the ball bounced out after being hit by Lee Seong-gyu’s glove. It was recognized as a double hit. 1 run loaded bases while giving up a walk to Russell. I couldn’t get over Kim Hwi’s house. Kim Hui-jip gave away three RBIs and a double, and collapsed. Park Joo-hong and Kim Dong-heon struck out on a swing and did not give up any more runs.
Buchanan struck out Byeong-wook Lim on a swing in the second inning and gave Kim Hye-seong a hit, but Lee Yong-kyu and Lee Jung-hoo were treated as criminal hits. In the 3rd inning, Lee Hyung-jong struck out, Russell hit second base, and Kim Hui-jip turned center fielder into a floating ball, creating the first three-way inning of the day.
The 4th time was also neat. Park Joo-hong struck out looking, Dong-heon Kim struck out right fielder, and Byeong-wook Lim struck out with a changeup that prevented the bat from coming out. After giving up a hit to Kim Hye-seong with one out in the second inning, it was 8 consecutive hitters. In the 6th inning, pitcher Park Joo-hong grounded, Lee Ji-young grounded to second base, and Lim Byeong-wook struck out. Unlike Yokishi, who went down the mound after the 6th inning, Buchanan was on the mound in the 7th inning as well. By the sixth inning, the number of pitches was 88.
The record was broken 5 times. He gave up a right-handed hit to lead batter Kim Tae-jin. After Lee Yong-gyu’s sacrifice bunt, Lee Jung-hoo walked and Russell allowed a hit, and the bases were loaded with the second runner. Fortunately, Kim Hui-jip was turned into a floating ball in right field using a 154km fastball.
After giving up a left-handed hit to Kim Tae-jin in the 7th inning, Lee Yong-kyu and Lee Jung-hoo increased their outcounts by one at bat. Lee Hyung-jong was able to finish the 7th inning at bat, but Lee Won-seok’s throw to third base made an error and he could not finish the 7th inning. It came back like a boomerang and gave Russell a timely RBI. 메이저놀이터
In the end, Buchanan ended up here. Coach Jung Hyun-wook came up and received the ball from Buchanan, and Choi Chung-yeon came up after Buchanan.
On this day, Buchanan recorded 6.2 innings, 9 hits, 2 walks, 9 strikeouts and 5 runs (4 earned). He threw 103 pitches that day. He threw the most cutters (40) and picked and threw a changeup (28), curveball (17), two-seam (11) and fastball (7). Top speed is 155 km/h.
Since he came down the mound in a 1-5 situation, Buchanan suffered the yoke of defeat. He did not laugh even with 9 strikeouts, 155 km, and 103 pitches.
Samsung lost 1-6 and failed to win 3 in a row and sweep the series.
