The 39-year-old catcher’s head-first sliding woke Samsung from sleep, but…

A 39-year-old veteran of Korean age performed head first sliding. And this sliding led to an equalizer, and the team was revived. 

Samsung succeeded in a dramatic tie in the 9th inning against the LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 8th. 

On this day, Samsung was dragged around without even scoring a single point until the 8th inning. Samsung starter David Buchanan pitched 110 pitches up to 8 innings, giving up 3 hits and 1 run. 

However, in the 9th episode, a golden opportunity came to Samsung.토토사이트, Leading batsman Lee Won-seok reached base with a hit to the right of center fielder, followed by Kang Min-ho’s lucky hit to secure first and second base chances. Later, when Kang Han-wool’s bunt, the runner on second base failed to advance to third base, but Oh Jae-il’s walk made the base full. 

A chance for a run with the bases loaded. The ball left Kim Seong-yoon’s bat and flew toward the left fielder. However, the third base runner was Kang Min-ho. The distance was ambiguous for Kang Min-ho, who was rather slow on his feet, to dig into the home with a tag-up. However, Kang Min-ho ran toward home with the left fielder’s catch, and as soon as he reached home, he slid head first and swept the home plate with his body. 

The throw that came home did not reach the catcher’s mitt. Because it was blocked by Kang Min-ho’s body, who performed head-first sliding, and flowed to the side. Afterwards, a video reading was conducted regarding the tag-up on third base, but the result was safe. The fighting spirit sliding led to a tie. The game, which could have ended in the beginning of the ninth inning, continued until the end of the ninth inning with Kang Min-ho’s all-out sliding. 

But unfortunately, Samsung couldn’t laugh. Unable to take advantage of the two outs and 1st and 2nd base opportunities that followed, in the bottom of the 9th, Samsung gave away a final hit to opposing foreign hitter Austin Dean and lost, and Kang Min-ho’s sliding faded. However, the head-first sliding of the 39-year-old veteran catcher was enough to awaken Samsung’s fighting spirit and change the atmosphere.
