“The starting pitcher threw so well, and thanks to Pirella’s first home run, I was able to play comfortably”.
Koo Ja-wook (Samsung)’s performance shone. In the match against Kiwoom in Daegu on the 4th, he showed off a fierce sense of hitting with 2 hits, 2 RBIs and 3 points in 4 at-bats.
Samsung defeated Kiwoom 14-1 and succeeded in escaping the losing streak. Starter Albert Suarez kept the mound until the 7th inning and delivered a scoreless perfect pitch to report his first win of the season. Jose Pirella, who started as a leadoff, led the attack with 3 hits, 2 RBIs and 2 runs in 5 at-bats, including the first home run in the 1st inning.
In a broadcast interview after the game, Ja-wook Koo gave credit to his teammates, saying, “The starting pitcher threw so well and I was able to play comfortably thanks to Pirella’s first home run.”
Ja-wook Koo’s performance in the first year after a multi-year contract was not satisfactory. He appeared in 99 games and had a batting average of 2.9 3 (120 in 409 at-bats) with 5 home runs, 38 RBIs, 69 runs scored and 11 stolen bases. It was a figure that did not match the reputation of Ja-wook Koo. 스포츠토토
