The ups and downs were still the same, but the natural enemy was the same.
Samsung Lions foreign pitcher Taylor Widener once again proved his strength against the KIA Tigers. Widener started the game against KIA held at Lions Park in Daegu on the 12th and allowed 4 runs, 6 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, in 6 innings. The total number of pitches is 106.바카라
Widener appeared in two games against KIA this season and won both. He pitched 12 innings and gave up 3 earned runs (4 earned runs), resulting in an ERA of 2.25. On June 17, when he was with the NC Dinos, he became the winning pitcher in the KIA game with 3 runs in 6 innings, and on the 18th of last month, when he changed his uniform to Samsung, he performed well with 5 hits, 4 walks, 7 strikeouts, and no runs in 6 innings.
However, when looking at the overall trend beyond KIA, the ups and downs were actually more noticeable. Widener, who transferred to Samsung after going through waiver notice from NC, recorded only 1 win and 2 losses in 4 games. In the match against SSG last month, which was his first appearance after the transfer, he became the losing pitcher by allowing 4 runs in 6⅔ innings, and on the 18th, he met KIA and won with a good pitch. On August 25th against Kiwoom, he suffered a defeat by being criticized for giving up 11 hits (1 home run) in 4⅔ innings, but on the 6th against Lotte, he played his part by allowing 2 runs (no decision) in 5⅓ innings.
Regarding Widener’s ups and downs, Samsung coach Park Jin-man predicted, “He probably knows it himself. Since he knows what was thrown before, he will know what to do this time and will focus a little more.”
When Widener ended the inning with three batters despite getting on base due to an error by the shortstop in the top of the first inning, the fielders immediately stepped in to provide support. In the bottom of the first inning, Jae-il Oh lightened Widener’s shoulders by hitting a grand grand slam.
Widener gave up a run in the top of the second inning by making a mistake by throwing the ball back while attempting to check first base with KIA on first and third base. As the KIA batting line produced sacrifice hits, all runners on base hit home. In the top of the 5th inning, when the score was 5-2, Kim Do-young and Kim Sun-bin got timely hits one after another, giving up their 4th run. However, when the score was tied with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases, Socrates struck out and came off the mound.
Widener, who returned to the mound in the top of the 6th inning, hit Taegun Kim with 2 outs. However, he completed the final out count by handling Wonjun Choi with a fly ball. The KIA batting line, which had a monthly batting average of .322.2 in September, did its best to score points, but failed to reach its goal of bringing down Widener early.
