‘Buchanan-Suarez pitching well, Pirela hitting well’ Trio of trusted Samsung outsiders deliver ‘winning streak after three straight losses’

Samsung has won two in a row after three straight losses thanks to the performance of foreign players.

After dropping all three games in Pohang against Doosan (4-6), Samsung won the games on the 8th and 9th after the rain cancellation against Changwon NC on the 7th. The team’s foreign players, who make up a large proportion of the team’s strength, were on full display, making the games easy.

David Buchanan, who has been a stalwart this season, took the mound on the 8th and pitched seven scoreless innings (2 hits, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts) to secure his sixth win of the season. He was followed by Lee Jae-Ik and Jang Pil-Jun, who each pitched one shutout inning.

Among the batters, Jose Pirela was the standout, going 2-for-4 with a double (one home run), three RBI and two runs scored. He lined out to right field in his first at-bat in the second inning, but came up to bat in the top of the fourth with a 1-0 lead and hit a solo shot to left off NC starter Shin Min-hyuk.

After being hit by a pitch in the sixth, he delivered the decisive blow in the seventh with a five-run lead. After a single by Koo Ja-rook and a double by Kang Min-ho put runners on second and third with no outs, he hit a triple to right-centre to bring them all home. Ryu Ji-hyuk capped the scoring with a sacrifice fly to left field. Samsung ended NC’s three-game losing streak with an 8-0 victory.먹튀검증

In game nine, starter Albert Suarez pitched a complete game. He pitched six innings of three-hit ball with one walk and four strikeouts, giving Samsung its first win in 29 days since the 10th of last month against Daegu Lotte.

Pirela played the role of “best friend” to Suarez to perfection. After singles in the second and sixth innings, he completed his three-hit game with a double to left field in the seventh, driving in a run and scoring twice. Behind Suarez and Pirela’s performances, Samsung defeated NC 7-0.

After winning only on Sundays for three weeks in a row, Samsung swept NC for the second straight day thanks to the foreign trio, not only completing the sweep but also extending its winning streak. Samsung will play its final three-game series of the first half against KIA on the 11th. It will be interesting to see if they can erase their five losses against Kia this season without a win.
