The NC Dinos will face an opposing ace without a killer.
NC outfielder Park Gun-woo has been removed from the starting lineup for the game against the Samsung Lions at Changwon NC Park on April 15. Earlier in the day, Park visited a doctor for back fatigue and pain. There is no major problem, but he is out of the starting lineup.
Before the game, coach Kang Myung-ho said, “Park Gun-woo has a bad back. He’s been to the hospital and there’s nothing wrong. It’s okay,” and shared the current status of Park Gun-woo. There is no major problem, but he seems to be taking a tempo break.
Son Asub (right fielder), Han Seok-hyun (center fielder), Park Min-woo (second baseman), Jason Martin (designated hitter), Kwon Hee-dong (left fielder), Oh Young-soo (first baseman), Seo Ho-cheol (third baseman), Kim Joo-won (shortstop), and Ahn Jung-yeol (catcher) are the starting lineup. The starting pitcher is Choi Sung-young. 메이저놀이터
On this day, NC will face Samsung ace David Buchanan. Buchanan is an ace with a 10-6 record in 25 games this season with a 2.69 ERA (47 earned runs in 157 innings). Taking down Buchanan will make the battle for second place more competitive. However, they will have to do so without Buchanan’s killer, Gun-woo Park. Park is 3-for-4 with eight RBIs in 23 career at-bats against Buchanan. This year, he is 4-for-7.
Along with Park, Park Se-hyuk has also been strong against Buchanan, going 7-for-4, but is currently injured. Other than that, Oh Young-soo (5-for-2), Kim Joo-won (8-for-3), and Martin (9-for-3) have been strong against Buchanan.
