Technical support issues
At the beginning of autumn, "With my fans and my family..." A great day for A.C.E, who is in his 4th year
In the most uncertain physical condition, the team stood on the mound at the most difficult time.
I had a lot of trouble in August. I had hand cramps, I had a sore throat.
He also made an early steel plate and skipped the mound once.
The starting mound is the first in 12 days since the match against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 22nd of last month. All three previous games were unexpected bullpen days.
The match against Suwon KT on the 31st. Taylor Widener was replaced by Hong Jung-woo on the day of the mound due to a cold. The match against Daegu NC on the 1st. Choi Chae-heung was substituted early in two innings. The match against Daegu NC on the 2nd. Won Tae-in handed over the mound to the bullpen in two innings due to an 88-minute rain suspension.
The result is a three-game losing streak. The bullpen also used up a lot. Woo Kyu-min and Oh Seung-hwan's veteran duo are the only bullpen pitchers to help. My body was not good, but I had to go long, and my shoulders were heavy.
However, a pitcher who breaks the losing streak when the team is in trouble. Buchanan was a true ace. He led the team to a 6-1 victory with five hits, two walks, four strikeouts and one run in 6⅔ innings, cutting off the team's losing streak. 9 wins this season. For the fourth consecutive year, he has only won one double-digit win.
When he hit Do Tae-hoon and Kim Joo-won in the seventh inning, he pitched 97 pitches. For Buchanan, who has the belief that "unless you reach 100 pitches, you will definitely get to a new inning," it was an inning to finish.
But at that moment, there was a person who crossed the line with a ball. It was director Park Jin-man.
a step after deciding to replace. Taking the mound with an interpreter was a courtesy to Ace.
Ace who made a game that was enough to win. It was an active replacement for protection considering the recent unusual physical condition. He knows his unique desire to win, so he stepped up himself instead of pitching coach Kwon Oh-joon.
It didn't take long. After reading the coach's consideration, he handed the ball over and went down the mound.
The fullness was greater than the regret. Buchanan took off his hat and waved his hand to his chest to the home fans who filled the third base stands for the holiday. The moment when the thunderous applause grew to the maximum. There was also Buchanan's family among the spectators.
There were also twin sisters who visited Korea to see their younger brother and threw the first pitch and hit the ball the previous day.
"I had a great pitching in front of a lot of fans and family," Buchanan said in an interview after the game. It was a perfect day," he said, expressing satisfaction. Regarding the twin sisters who resemble themselves and are full of passion, he said, "If we meet separately after today's game, I will ask if Korean baseball culture is fun," adding, "I already saw them dancing and singing along to the cheering song during the game."
Buchanan said to fans who support him and welcome his family, "I'm always grateful. "I would like to express my gratitude for the warm hospitality not only to me but also to my family and sisters," he said honestly
