Samsung Lions outside hitter Connor Seabold is set to start the return match.

Connor will start against the SSG Landers on Saturday at SSG Landers Field in Incheon. The return match against Landers ace Kim Kwang-hyun was canceled due to rain on the 15th.

Connor’s first meeting with the SSG Landers and Kim Kwang-hyun was not a memorable one.

It was his second KBO start on March 29 against SSG in Daegu. It was a nightmare.

After giving up a leadoff homer to Choi Ji-hoon in the first inning, Conner gave up back-to-back three-run homers to Han Dong-hoon, giving up four runs.

After allowing two hits in the second inning, Connor continued his shaky pitching, giving up a solo home run to leadoff hitter Ha Jae-hoon in the third inning. Five innings, nine hits, two walks, one strikeout, five runs. The first three home runs were the only ones he allowed. The team was unable to overcome the early deficit and fell 4-6, 안전놀이터 추천 handing Connor his first career loss. His opposite number, Kim “KK” Kwang-hyun, dominated Connor with six innings of two-hit, seven-strikeout, one-run ball to earn his second win of the season.

For Connor, SSG is a painful memory and something he needs to overcome.

We switch venues from Daegu to Incheon to meet the Landers again. Kim Kwang-hyun is the same pitcher as the first time.

It’s time to bounce back with a clean sweep.

Conner has been improving lately, but not enough to be happy about.

He’s gone five innings in five straight games, but hasn’t pitched six innings since his debut.

After his only no-hitter against Kiwoom on March 27, Samsung manager Park Jin-man said, “A no-hitter is important, but I want him to go longer as the team has entrusted him with the No. 1 spot. Five scoreless innings is good, but six scoreless innings would have been perfect,” he said.

Connor has only one quality start (six innings or less) in his career. Against the ‘Home Run Army’ SSG bats, avoiding the long ball will be key. SSG Landers Field is as home run-prone as Daegu.

The home run rate has been improving.

After allowing a home run in five straight games in his debut, Connor has allowed just one in his last four games. The bench’s biggest concern is mental.

Manager Park Jin-man said, “He had a bad look on his face after giving up a long hit. I hope his mental strength will be a little stronger.”

Connor was unable to protect an early 5-0 lead against Daegu Lotte on March 3.

After pitching a scoreless third inning, 무료 슬롯 he suddenly faltered in the fourth and fifth innings, giving up four runs in a 7-8 comeback loss.

Park Jin-man is desperate for a more stable ace who can comfortably come off the bench.

The return match against SSG in Incheon on Nov. 16, when Kim Kwang-hyun will return to the starting lineup, could be the day.
