Samsung Lions Baek Jung-hyun (36) was knocked out early in the first appearance of the season.
Baek Jung-hyun played as a starting pitcher in a home game against the Hanwha Eagles held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 6th, and was sluggish with 5 hits, 3 walks and 5 runs in 2 innings. Baek Jeong-hyeon, who filled the 2nd inning with difficulty, was replaced by Lee Ho-seong in the 3rd inning, where the score was 0-5.
It wasn’t good from the start. Baek Jeong-hyeon, who was hit with a 메이저놀이터double by Hanwha lead batter Noh Soo-gwang, brought a crisis to himself by giving up a walk to the next hitter, Jeong Eun-won. He accumulated two out counts against No. Si-hwan in No. 3 and Eun-seong Chae in No. 4, but gave up two runs first after being hit in front of the right fielder by Oh Gredy, batter No. 5.
Finishing the inning by striking out Kim In-hwan, Baek Jeong-hyeon seemed to find stability by striking out first batter Moon Hyun-bin in the second inning. However, he gave away a hit to Choi Jae-hoon and a series of walks to Park Jung-hyun and Noh Soo-gwang, and was driven to the crisis with a bases loaded with one out. It seemed to take a breather by treating Jeong Eun-won as a pitcher grounder, but it collapsed after being hit in a row by Noh Si-hwan (2 RBIs) and Chae Eun-seong (1 RBI) in the 2nd bases loaded.
After a full-count match with O’Grady, Baek Jeong-hyun finished the second episode with difficulty by catching the third outcount. In two innings, the number of pitches reached 56. Director Park Jin-man’s patience ended there. From the 3rd episode, Samsung replaced Baek Jung-hyun with rookie Lee Ho-seong.
