Samsung’s Yuk Sun-yeop “gained confidence” after successful debut with a bases-loaded walk-off single in the first inning

Samsung Lions rookie pitcher Yuk Sun-yeop had a successful first outing.

Yook threw one inning of one-hit, two-out relief against the Doosan Bears in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, on Monday.

Yook, who had been called up to the first team ahead of the game, was the third pitcher to take the mound in the seventh inning, when the team was leading 9-2, after starting pitcher Lee Ho-sung (5⅔ innings) and right-hander Lee Seung-hyun (⅓ innings). Prior to the game, Samsung manager Park Jin-man had expressed his intention to utilize Yook whenever he felt comfortable.

Samsung waited until the bottom of the sixth inning to use its closer. Lim Chang-min, Kim Jae-yoon, and Oh Seung-hwan were going to close out the game. However, the bats broke away with four runs in the top of the sixth and the top of the seventh, and Samsung didn’t need to use up its bullpen. Im Chang-min, who was warming up, went to the dugout. Instead, Yook Sun-yup, who had just finished warming up, took the mound to cheers from the fans.

After getting leadoff hitter Kang Seung-ho to fly out to center field, Yook gave up a walk to Henry Ramos and a single to Park Kye-beom and a walk to Cho Sun-sung to load the bases. But he induced a ground ball to the next batter, Jung Soo-bin. Shortstop Lee Jae-hyun caught the ball, stepped on second base and threw to first. The play was safe, but the Samsung bench immediately called for a video review. The ball had reached first base before Jung’s foot. The call was overturned and the inning ended.

Yook Sun-yup was removed from the mound after just one inning, and the fourth pitcher, Kim Dae-woo, took over the eighth and ninth innings. The game ended with a 9-2 victory for Samsung. “We congratulate Yuk on his first start and look forward to seeing him grow into one of Samsung’s main pitchers in the future,” said Samsung coach Park Jin-man.

After the game, Yuk said, “My pitching score today was 30 points. My pitches were shaky because I pitched with a weak body,” and ‘I was nervous because it was my first appearance in front of a large crowd, but I tried to enjoy the cheers of the fans.’

A graduate of Seoul’s Shinwoljung and Jangchung High Schools, Yuk joined 카지노 Samsung with the fourth pick in the first round this year and went 4-1 with a 2.00 ERA in 18 innings over four games in the Futures League. Samsung expects him to be a valuable addition to the mound, regardless of his position.

“What I learned from today’s appearance is that I have the confidence to pitch better than today if I gain more experience. If I get the next opportunity, I will try to show my stabilization,” he said.
