The professional baseball Doosan Bears kept their last pride in the first three games of the season against the “Jamsil rivals” LG Twins. Doosan won 10-5 in the third match of the season against the LG Twins held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 16th, and finished the weekend 3 consecutive matches with 1 win and 2 losses. It was 1-4 until the 6th inning, and the defeat was dark, but the game was overturned by driving 9 points in the 7th and 8th innings. In the previous two games, the pain of losing to LG in a row was avenged by a come-from-behind victory.
This series drew attention with the so-called ‘War of Yeop’, in which LG director Yeom Kyung-yeop (55) and Doosan Lee Seung-yeop (47) faced each other for the first time. The baseball life of the two coaches who command the two teams in Jamsil was considered a more interesting confrontation in many ways. Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop retired with the lowest career batting average (0.195, 1500 or more at-bats) during his active career. On the other hand, manager Lee Seung-yeop was a star player who hit the most home runs in the KBO League.
Even as his leader, it is a contrast. Director Yeom is a veteran leader who has been coached by Kiwoom Heroes and SSG Landers, and has advanced to the Korean Series twice. On the other hand, coach Lee has no professional coaching experience at all. He took the baton of professional baseball for the first time this year. Senior coach Yeom said, “I want to win in head-to-head matches, and coach Lee Seung-yeop wins a lot of other teams, so I hope he becomes a good coach.”
The first two games were ‘victory of flame’. LG won 13-4 in the first match on the 13th. Doosan scored a lot without missing the gap to self-destruct with 4 mistakes. In the second game on the 14th, LG won 3-1. The tight flow continued in the good pitching of both teams, but LG scored a decisive goal with quick feet. 토스카지노
In the last game of the 3-game series, Doosan, who was desperate, got out of the crisis of defeat by sweeping it with a unique back-and-forth. After two outs in the 7th inning, trailing 1-4, Soo-bin Jeong hit right hand and Soo-haeng Jo walked, creating opportunities for first and second base. After a full-count match, Yang Seok-hwan, who was at bat, hit a dramatic 3-run homer (season 4) to turn the game around.
Doosan, who gained momentum, seized the victory in the 8th inning. This time, LG’s mistake became the excuse. After one out, Doosan Song Seung-hwan went on base due to a catch error by LG shortstop Kim Min-seong, and after two outs, Ahn Jae-seok regained the lead with a timely hit. Sue-Bin Lee summoned both of them when he hit a timely triple that went over the center fielder’s head in continued first and second base opportunities with a ball that hit Yoo-chan’s body.
The LG mound, which was deprived of the flow, collapsed on its own after making many mistakes. After bringing the bases loaded crisis to himself with three walks and a wild throw, Yang Eui-ji hit a double at the right time with a two-run wedge. Doosan broke a three-game losing streak like that.
Meanwhile, Kiwoom Lee Jung-hoo hit a two-run homer to end the 10th inning in a 0-0 match against the Gocheok KIA Tigers. It was his second home run this season and his second walk-off in his personal career. Kiwoom, who won 2-0, won 4 consecutive victories while sweeping 3 consecutive weekend matches against KIA. Kiwoom starter Choi Won-tae (8 innings) and KIA starter Yang Hyeon-jong (7 innings) played a game of luxury pitchers with no runs side by side, but left empty-handed because they did not receive support for scoring. KIA fell into a 4-game losing streak.
The Samsung Lions overcame the Lotte Giants 9-1 with the concentration of the batting line, which only scored 7 points at the end of the 6th inning. Samsung starter Won Tae-in reported his first win of the season by throwing well with one run in 6 2/3 innings. Samsung foreign hitter Jose Pirella, who has been sluggish recently, played an active part with 3 hits and 3 RBIs, including a home run in the final. KT Wiz defeated Hanwha Eagles 14-2 in Suwon. Hanwha starter Nam Ji-min gave up 7 hits and gave up 7 runs while catching one out.
