Right-handed pitcher Jang Pil-joon (35), who is considered a candidate for the Samsung Lions’ 5th starting pitcher, took the mound in the first practice game of spring camp and scored 2 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks and 1 run.
On the 12th, Jang Pil-joon started a practice game against Chunichi Dragons of the Japanese professional baseball team held at Chatan 바카라Stadium in Okinawa, Japan, and showed a somewhat disappointing appearance.
He caught all three batters with eight balls in the first inning, but lost control in the second inning and conceded a run.
Another starting candidate, Yang Chang-seop, took the mound as the team’s third pitcher in the 4th inning, trailing 0-1, and blocked 2 innings with 2 hits, 2 walks and no runs.
On this day, Samsung failed to attack Chunichi pitchers and lost 0-7.
Koo Ja-wook, who started as designated hitter No. 3, was sluggish with no hits in two at-bats, such as hitting an infield grounder with one out and first base in the first inning.
Cho Min-seong, who started as the 8th hitter and first baseman, recorded 2 hits in 4 at-bats and was the only player on the team to record a multi-hit (more than 2 hits in one game).
After the game, Jo Min-seong said through the club, “Park Han has been focusing on timing training with the hitting coach.”
