Samsung Lions foreign pitcher David Buchanan suffered in the opening game of the regular season. 

Buchanan, who has been in charge of starting the opening game for three consecutive years since 2021, started on the 1st in the home game against the NC Dinos at Daegu Samsung Lions Park. 

I couldn’t laugh in the previous two opening day starts. On April 3, 2021, in the match against Gocheok Kiwoom, he drank high with 5⅔innings, 7 hits, 3 walks, 8 strikeouts and 5 runs (4 earned). In the opening game against KT held on April 2 last year at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, he had a good fight with 7 hits, 4 walks, 4 strikeouts and 2 runs in 6 innings, but he did not receive help from the other line. 

Even in the demonstration game, as he showed his ace side without regret with 1 win and ERA of 1.59, expectations were raised that he would show a good appearance in the game today. However, he fell into a swamp of three consecutive losses in the opening game with 8 hits, 5 strikeouts and 4 runs in 5 innings.

It was far from the support of other lines. It was regrettable that he could not save the chance with one out and a full base in the 4th inning. If one shot had exploded, the situation might have been different. 

Samsung suffered a bitter defeat 0-8 in front of fans who filled the living room. Albert Suarez, a foreigner in his second year, was announced as a starting pitcher on the 2nd. 

Suarez, who first stepped on Korean soil last year, appeared in 24 games and recorded only 6 wins and 8 losses, but his pitching was good, as evidenced by his 2.49 ERA. He also did his part as a starter, earning 19 quality starts. 

Based on the experience of last year, it was an upgraded look. He won 2 wins in 3 trials. As can be seen from the average ERA of 0.69, he showed impeccable pitching.  스포츠토토

As much as Suarez’s hot pitch, he needs the help of his teammates. Samsung had only 5 hits in the game on the 1st. Among the batters in the team, Kim Ji-chan was the only one to achieve a multi-hit. Kang Min-ho, Lee Jae-hyun, and Lee Seong-gyu recorded one hit each. Of course, it wasn’t that there were no scoring chances. The clutch ability was disappointing. 

Last year, Suarez, who was called ‘Sucrai’ because he threw well but did not follow his luck. What will he show on his first appearance this season?
