ERA 10.35… What happened to Samsung’s strongest starting lineup?

Samsung Lions’ starting rotation is sluggish at the beginning of the opening. The starting pitcher’s ERA is a whopping 10.35.

Samsung lost 2-7 in the match against LG held at Jamsil Stadium on the 7th. They gave up the flow at the beginning of the game and did not have a chance to counterattack.

Starting pitcher Yang Chang-seop allowed 5 runs only in the first inning. With three walks, the bases were loaded with one company, and a sacrifice fly allowed the first run. With another walk, he brought two bases full, and allowed three consecutive timely hits as he even came out with a disappointing scene in the outfield defense. With 4 walks and 3 hits in the 1st inning, Samsung gave up 5 points, and the Samsung bench had no way to do anything about it.

Samsung has a starting rotation of Buchanan, Suarez, Won Tae-in, Baek Jung-hyun, and Yang Chang-seop. Buchanan is playing the role of an ace with a double-digit multiplier and an average ERA in the early 3-point range for the 4th year in the KBO League this year and 3 consecutive years until last year. Suarez had no success last year wearing a Samsung uniform (6 wins, 8 losses), but with an average ERA of 2.49, he was 4th in the league.

Won Tae-in has recorded 10 wins and an average ERA of 3 points for the last two years in a row. Baek Jung-hyun recorded a career high with 14 wins and 5 losses with a 2.63 ERA, and last year was sluggish with 4 wins and 13 losses and an average ERA of 5.27.

The Samsung starting lineup has never recorded a quality start in the opening game with NC or the midweek series with Hanwha. He had no pitcher to pitch more than five innings.

Buchanan became the losing pitcher, allowing 4 runs in 5 innings in the opening game with NC. NC 1 starting pitcher Pedy (5 innings scoreless) was completely defeated in a head-to-head confrontation. Suarez allowed 6 runs in 3 innings, recording the most earned runs in his single game. 토토사이트

Won Tae-in, who scored 3 runs in 5 innings against Hanwha, was the least of it. Yang Chang-seop, who had a successful first season in 2018 and struggled with elbow surgery and frequent injuries, left regret in his first appearance of the season.

The 1st to 5th starters started one game at a time, and the average ERA of the starters was 10.35 (23 runs in 20 innings). It is about twice that of KT (average ERA of 5.87), which has the second highest starting ERA after Samsung. Naturally, the Samsung starting lineup is the only one out of 10 clubs that has failed to win even one.

In order to create a winnable game, the starter must block at least 2-3 runs until the 5th inning. If the selection allows a large number of runs from the beginning of the game, fatigue spreads to both the bullpen and the batting line.

Samsung coach Park Jin-man said, “On the weekend, Buchanan and Suarez throw as starters. Won Tae-in has a lot of pitches last Tuesday, so he throws next Tuesday instead of Sunday.” Samsung starters should show a different appearance from the second appearance.
