A group of young blood-stained lions

Immediately after the opening, the Samsung Lions in professional baseball overcame the slump and gained a clear upward momentum. It joined the ranking competition with the strength of a well-organized lineup and a must-win group.

Samsung won 5-3 in the last game of the three consecutive weekend series against the Hanwha Eagles at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 21st. Starting Conor Seabold was taken away by giving up the first three points, but he took the lead in the middle and second half of the fight to secure the winning series.

Entering the top ranks is just around the corner. While the SSG Landers, who were ranked third before the day, were caught up by the LG Twins, they tied for fifth by half a game.

Up until early this month, Samsung had been moving around the bottom of the standings. It had won its first two consecutive games, but since then, it has met LG, SSG, and Kiwoom Heroes one after another, and won its seventh consecutive game without a win. It fell to the bottom of the standings on Saturday.

The reversal took place thereafter. He quickly accumulated multipliers including two sweeps. The winning rate also recovered to 50 percent before long.

The batting lineup accounted for the biggest contribution. Young blood Kim Young-woong was at the forefront. Having been lagging behind Lee Jae-hyun at the same time as a pro player until last year, Lee emerged as a “blue chip” while Lee Jae-hyun was away due to shoulder surgery rehabilitation early in the season. He impressed people with his outstanding contact ability and long hitters emanating from his skinny body.

Lee Jae-hyun returned faster than expected, but Kim Young-woong was not pushed back to the backup. Instead, he moved to third base. Coach Park Jin-man’s use of the synergy effect between the two has been successful so far. Samsung has won six games (two losses) since the 13th when Lee Jae-hyun and Kim Young-woong played together.

Koo Ja-wook is showing off his strength in the waist division. He is receiving 2 billion won (2 million U.S. dollars) in annual salary this year, and he is wielding his bat as if it were the highest paid hitter in his team. He had a batting average of 0.355, which ranks fifth in the league, and hit five home runs. Ryu Ji-hyuk, who injured his shoulder while attempting to steal a base on April 27, has returned to the team, further strengthening his talent base. Veteran Kim Heon-gon also contributed by hitting as a pinch hitter.

Recruitment of foreign hitters is also successful. David McKinnon, who gave up renewing contract with Jose Pirella, has the standard batting average of 0.359, the highest in his team. He also had an RBI in the showdown. With the bases loaded with one outs in the seventh inning, he tied the game 3-3, laying foundation for his come-from-behind victory.

The bullpen session, which was the biggest weakness in the past season, has gained strength beyond recognition. We cannot forget the performance of veteran players who joined the free agent market. Lim Chang-min only posted an ERA of 0.68 in 13 games, and Kim Jae-yoon also maintains an ERA in the early two-point range. In addition, Oh Seung-hwan has regained stability. The three completely deleted a total of three ⅓ innings after giving up just one hit.
