Doosan Bears achieved a winning series.
Doosan won 5-1 in the third game of the season between the team and the Hanwha Eagles of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 20th. Doosan recorded 2 wins and 1 loss in this series, recording a season record of 9 wins and 7 losses, and Hanwha took the 10th loss of the season (5 wins and 1 draw).
Ace Raul Alcantara’s hot fighting shone. Alcantara endured 8 innings with 109 pitches and won 2 wins (1 loss) of the season with 7 hits (1 home run), no 4 walks, 11 strikeouts and 1 run. It was an activity that reminded me of the 2020 season, when I was active as a 20-win ace at Doosan. The fastest ball (51) itself, which reached 154 km, was powerful, and the active mixing of forkballs (24) and sliders (22) was effective.
Doosan quickly changed the flow of the game by making a big inning with 5 runs in the top of the 3rd inning, behind 0-1. Leading batter Lee Yu-chan went on base with a heavy hit, and Jo Su-haeng hit a superior two-run four to turn the score over to 2-1. Yang Eui-ji widened the distance to 4-1 with a left-handed two-run gun in the first base opportunity created by Yang Chan-yeol’s heavy hit. 메이저놀이터
Hanwha’s defensive mistake led to an extra goal. In the second out and second base, Kang Seung-ho wanted to step back with a strikeout and strikeout, but Hanwha catcher Park Sang-eon missed the ball. In the meantime, Kang Seung-ho reached first base, and second base runner Heo Gyeong-min ran around third base and sprinted all the way to home, running away with a score of 5-1, putting a wedge in the victory.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Starting pitcher Alcantara showed the best performance. He threw 8 innings and relieved the bullpen’s burden. He was like an ace. I also want to praise catcher Jang Seung-hyun’s lead. He played a no-four ball game with good breathing between batteries.” He did not hold back his praise.
He added, “On the other line, Jo Su-haeng and Yang Eui-ji’s home runs brought the victory. It was a clean victory, but it was possible thanks to the support of the fans who cheered for the away to Daejeon. We will show a good performance at home.”
