Oh Seung-hwan (41) of the Samsung Lions still has not resolved his anxiety.

It was hard from the start. Oh Seung-hwan pitched in 10 games in April and harvested four saves, but his ERA was high at 4.50.

Samsung has come up with a new plan. On May 3, Oh Seung-hwan was given the starting job and hoped to regain his pitching sense. Oh Seung-hwan, 메이저놀이터 주소who was in charge of the starting mound for the first time in his 19th year as a professional, scored three runs in five innings against the Kiwoom Heroes. The next day, Oh Seung-hwan was excluded from the first team entry and had a recovery period.

Oh Seung-hwan, who returned from charging, gradually showed his skills. In nine games, he played 11⅓ innings and allowed only three points. During this period, Oh Seung-hwan set aside five saves and achieved a record of 500 saves in Korea, the U.S., and Japan.

But the joy didn’t last long. Oh Seung-hwan played in the eighth inning with his team leading 6-4 against the KT Wiz on the 16th of last month, but showed poor performance with two hits and two runs (one earned run) in ⅓ innings.

Oh Seung-hwan had only seven pitches, but he couldn’t avoid a steel plate. Angry Oh Seung-hwan threw the ball into the stands while going down the mound, and threw the glove away in the dugout. Two days later, Oh Seung-hwan went down to the second division.

Oh Seung-hwan made his return to the first division against the Hanwha Eagles on the 2nd and neatly blocked one inning. However, he lowered his head again against the Doosan Bears on the 4th.

Oh Seung-hwan, who started with two outs and third base in the ninth inning, overcame the crisis by blocking Jung Soo-bin with a grounder to shortstop. The problem arose in the next inning. In the 10th inning, Oh Seung-hwan allowed Kim Jae-hwan a two-run arch in the middle after Huh Kyung-min hit a right-handed hit. Samsung lost 3-5, and Oh Seung-hwan took the loss.

Oh Seung-hwan only left a four-point ERA in the KBO League in 2009 (4.83) and 2010 (4.50). This year is also unlucky. He has spent time readjusting in the second division twice this season, but it is not easy to revive.

As the finish of the iron wall falters, the team is falling repeatedly. Samsung, which started June in seventh place, fell to ninth place on the 16th. Samsung, which had a clear decline, could not prevent the fall in last place. Samsung has been staying at the lowest spot on the ranking table since the 22nd of last month.

Samsung also lost 4-7 against Doosan at Pohang Stadium on the 5th. On this day, Samsung’s pitchers gave up 11 hits and 9 walks, lowering their heads.

Samsung needs a clear finishing pitcher to reform the atmosphere. Oh Seung-hwan is the closing pitcher symbolizing Samsung. The Lions desperately need Oh Seung-hwan’s rebound.
