Moving to the invincible LG doesn’t make you weak against Samsung…Choi Won-tae gives up 6 runs in 5 innings

Switching teams didn’t make him weaker. LG’s Choi Won-tae was swept by Samsung.

Choi Won-tae, who turned heads with a 9.90 ERA in his youth, faced Samsung for the first time since his transfer. He started the game against Daegu on May 5 and was tagged for six runs (nine hits (one home run), one walk and four strikeouts) in five innings.

Taking the mound with a lead thanks to the firepower of his teammates, he gave up a run in the first inning on a triple by Kim Hyun-jun and a sacrifice fly by Kim Sung-yoon. He induced Koo Ja-ook and Kang Min-ho to strike out swinging and ground out to second base, respectively. He gave up an infield single to leadoff hitter Ryu Ji-hyuk in the second, but retired the next three batters.

In the top of the third, Kim Hyun-jun and Kim Sung-yoon singled, followed by a double by Koo Ja-ook. Kang Min-ho was hit by a pitch to load the bases, and Ryu Ji-hyuk followed with a sacrifice fly to center field. Kim Tae-hoon grounded out to second base to end the inning.

With the bases loaded in the fourth inning, Lee Jae-hyun battled through eight pitches before giving up a solo shot to left. Kim Dong-jin and Kim Hyun-joon were able to keep the bases loaded and no more runs scored.

In the fifth inning, Kim Sung-yoon and Koo Ja-rook singled to put runners on first and second with no outs. Kang Min-ho flied out to center field, but the runner from second, Kim Sung-yoon, made it to third. Ryu Ji-hyeok singled to right and stole second for the sixth run. After striking out Kim Tae-hoon, he induced Oh Jae-il to fly out to center field to end the inning.스포츠토토
