Daegu Samsung-Kiwoom match on the 26th. It was a game that reminded me of Yogi Berra’s famous saying, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” In the 8th inning, where Samsung fell behind 2-5, Oh Jae-il’s grand slam produced a 6-5 comeback drama. 토토사이트

Samsung, trailing 2-5, attacked in the bottom of the 8th inning. Lead batters Lee Jae-hyun and Kim Ji-chan walked against second pitcher Moon Seong-hyun. The Samsung bench replaced Kim Jae-seong with Kang Min-ho as a pinch hitter. Kang Min-ho walked to first base with a ball that hit his body. Full base safely. Oh Jae-il, who was replaced during the defense in the top of the 8th inning, took his first at-bat in a golden opportunity. 

Oh Jae-il pulled the slider on the second pitch from third pitcher Lee Myeong-jong and ball count 1B-0S and sent it out of the right outfield wall. Daegu Samsung Lions Park turned into a crucible of enthusiasm when the home run turned the tide of the game 6-5. Oh Jae-il was delighted as he raised his right arm around first base. 

When all the runners on the ground came home, manager Park Jin-man and head coach Lee Byeong-gyu welcomed them. Captain Ja-wook Koo embraced Jae-il Oh and was delighted with it as if it were his own work. MBC Sports Plus commentator Lee Sang-hoon, who was in charge of relaying the match, said, “Did Samsung wait for this scene? A really great moment has come.” 

Samsung, who took a 1-point lead, put Oh Seung-hwan, the ‘end boss’, in the 9th inning. Oh Seung-hwan, the “eldest brother” on the mound, added a save by treating all three batters, Jeon Byung-woo, Song Seong-moon, and Kim Hye-seong, with a hit. Samsung defeated Kiwoom 6-5 and balanced 1 win and 1 loss in 3 consecutive weekend games. Coach Park Jin-man’s overall review of the match was short but heavy. “It was a game that didn’t need long words. Oh Jae-il saved the team.” 

Oh Jae-il, who saved Samsung from a crisis, said in an interview with MBC Sports Plus, “I was losing, but I am happy to hit a home run that helped the team win.” 

He continued, “In the situation with the bases loaded, my only thought was to hit the center of the bat more accurately than a home run or hit. As soon as he was hit he knew it was a home run. He added that he got goosebumps when he hit the home run and turned around on the ground.” 

Colleagues such as captain Ja-wook Koo and Min-ho Kang could not hide their joy at Jae-il Oh’s home run. In response, Jae-il Oh expressed his gratitude to his colleagues, saying, “It was really touching to see them so happy as if they were hit by themselves.” 

Oh Jae-il has a batting average of 10.8% this season (48 hits in 259 bats), 9 homers, 41 RBIs and 23 points. It is somewhat far from the fame Jae-il Oh has shown so far. He is the first to come to the ground before the game and swings the bat, trying his best to recover his sense of hitting. His colleagues were also delighted with his work because he knew well that Jae-il Oh was working hard. 

Oh Jae-il said, “He has a lot of poor performance this season, but he doesn’t give up and is thinking positively to hit even one more hit in every game.”
