KKKKK+Highest 153km+Crisis management…but Ace didn’t laugh

 Albert Suarez, a foreign pitcher for the Samsung Lions, showed off his ace’s might in his first appearance at spring camp. 

Suarez started a practice game against the KIA Tigers held at Akama Ball Park in Okinawa, Japan on the 1st. He gave up 2 hits and 1 walk in 2 innings, but blocked it well without allowing a run. He scored five strikeouts with a fast ball of up to 153 km. 

Suarez, who caught Kim Do-young by striking out in the first inning, was put in a crisis with Kim Ho-ryeong’s heavy hit and Kim Seok-hwan’s double to the right fielder with one out and second and third base. Crisis management skills were by far the best. Hwang Dae-in and Byeon Woo-hyuk were defeated with consecutive strikeouts. 

Suarez lightly handled Lee Woo-sung, the lead batter, with a ground ball to third base in the second innin바카라사이트g. He gave up a walk to Kim Kyu-seong, but struck out Seung-taek Han and Jong-pyo Hong in a row to put them to rest. 

On this day, Samsung was caught 1-9 by KIA, and postponed its first victory in the Okinawa League to the next opportunity, but Suarez’s perfect pitch was a gain in defeat. 

After the game, Suarez said, “I threw with a good feeling for two innings. Right now, I think I am raising the pace without attaching meaning to the result or process.” 

Suarez, who said, “I think my concentration has improved while playing against the Korean team,” said, “I feel that the season is coming. We will try to find areas that need further improvement in the remaining games.” 

Suarez, who first stepped on Korean soil last year, climbed the mound 30 times and recorded 6 wins and 8 losses. His earned run average was 2.49. He achieved 19 quality starts, one of the criteria for evaluating the role of a starting pitcher. There were quite a few times when he threw well but missed a win because the batting line was silent or the pitching team was shaking. 

He didn’t follow Seung-woon, but he has a good attitude as an ace to the extent that he never showed it. Suarez’s mind resonated with his teammates. 

Suarez emphasizes, “I always want to contribute to the team’s victory.” He promised to strive to achieve a quality start in every start. We are already looking forward to seeing how Suarez, who showed off his ace presence in the first game of the camp, will show this season.
