Samsung Oh Jae-il’s first base defense ability is evaluated as the best in the league.

” In the early 5th inning defense with a lead of 6 points, in a crisis situation with 1 company 1st and 2nd base, Lee Ho-yeon flew down the right field and caught the ball, and then accurately tossed the base cover to Won Tae-in
. The commentator said, “Oh Jae-il has done such a great thing. I almost didn’t know what the game would be like if the batted ball was missing. It’s good for the batter to score points from the pitcher’s point of view, but helping with good defense when standing on the mound is also a great power. Won Tae-in
gave a walk to Oh Yoon-seok, a pinch hitter with 2nd and 3rd base, but Sang-cheol Moon, who entered the plate instead of Hong Hyun-bin, struck out looking for the 6th fastball from the ball count 2B-2S. Won Tae-in
kept the mound until the 6th inning and succeeded in hunting for 3 wins of the season with a scoreless score. Samsung broke away from the swamp of 3 consecutive losses by defeating KT 6-4. It was a victory possible because of Oh Jae-il’s beast defense.
