Won Tae-in of Samsung Ace covered his mouth and admired Buchanan’s roar as he overcame the 2nd bases loaded crisis with no runs.
Samsung won 1-0 in its first confrontation with Doosan in the 2023 KBO League held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 26th.
Ace Buchanan’s good fight stood out. Buchanan, who started this day, won his second win of the season with scoreless pitching, recording 5 hits, 2 walks and 5 strikeouts in 6 innings. ㅋㅋㅋ벳
Samsung took a 1-0 lead with Ja-Wook Koo’s home run in the 4th inning, and Buchanan continued pitching scoreless until the 5th inning, continuing the battle of luxury pitchers against starter Alcantara.
It was the 6th inning that Buchanan, who had blocked the opponent’s batting line well until the 5th inning, faced the biggest crisis.
Leading hitter Su-bin Su allowed a hit in front of the left fielder, and Su-haeng Jo, who was attempting a sacrifice bunt, gave up a bunt hit and was driven to the 1st and 2nd base safely.
After that, Buchanan seemed to take a breather by catching Yang Seok-hwan and Kim Jae-hwan with a fly and strikeout from center fielder, but Yang Eui-ji walked on base and faced a crisis with two outs loaded.
In the situation where the bases were loaded with two companies, a confrontation between Rojas and Buchanan, who had hit in the first at-bat that day, unfolded.
Buchanan threw a 144 km cutter in the favor of the ball count 1B 2S to draw Rojas’ bat, and when third baseman Gong Min-gyu caught a high-flying foul fly, Buchanan roared.
It was the roar of Buchanan, who poured out everything with six scoreless innings.
Buchanan, who completed his mission with a thrilling roar, picked up Gong Min-gyu’s hat that had fallen on the ground and threw it away as if he were not indifferent, and went into the dugout while receiving cheers from his colleagues.
