The professional baseball Samsung Lions started their escape from the bottom tier by defeating the KIA Tigers for the second day in a row.

Samsung came from behind to win 7-3 in the visiting game against KIA in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League held at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 7th.

Samsung, which had been on an 8-game losing streak since the opening 2 consecutive wins, won 2 of the 3 consecutive weekend games against KIA and reaped the winning series (winning at least 2 games out of the 3 games).

Samsung was trailing 0-1 with two outs in the second inning when Gong Min-gyu hit his first home run of the season against KIA starter Yang Hyeon-jong to bring the game back to square one.

In the 3rd inning, with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases, Kang Min-ho’s 1 RBI hit and Kim Young-woong’s 1 RBI double combined to increase the score to 3-1.

With the bases loaded and no outs in the 4th inning, KIA made up for one point with a double play by pinch hitter Ko Jong-wook, followed by Park Min’s RBI double, bringing the score back to 3-3.

Samsung took the lead again in the 7th inning with Kim Jae-hyuk’s sacrifice fly, and in the 8th inning, Kim Heon-gon hit a one-run home run.

Samsung Kim Jae-yoon held on for 1⅓ scoreless innings in the bullpen.

Kim Heon-gon, who had taken the lead in escaping an 8-game losing streak with a pinch-hit double in the game against KIA the previous day, led the way to victory by hitting a long hit for two days in a row.

In addition, with Kim Heon-gon’s home run, Samsung achieved 75,000 bases for the first time in KBO League history.

Samsung took a 7-3 lead in the 9th inning thanks to an opponent’s error and Kang Min-ho’s sacrifice fly.

Samsung’s bullpen, which was shaky at the beginning of the season, showed solid performance on this day.

With starter Lee Ho-seong going down after only 3 innings, Kim Tae-hoon (2 innings) ~ Choi Ha-neul (1st inning) ~ Choi Seong-hoon (⅓ inning) ~ Lim Chang-min (⅓ inning) ~ Kim Jae-yoon (1⅓ inning) ~ Oh Seung-hwan (1 inning) pitched the remaining 6 innings. They teamed up without giving up any points.

Choi Ha-neul achieved his second win in his professional career and his first since 2022. 토토사이트
