Doosan laughed at a home run, Lotte cried at an empty ball… Hee-bi crossed with ‘Korean medicine’


The weekend three-game series between Lotte Giants and Doosan Bears unfolded in front of Ulsan baseball fans. While the giants bowed their heads with empty balls, the bear overcame the hump with a big blow from the match and laughed.

Doosan won 4-2 in the 8th game of the season against Lotte in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Munsu Baseball Stadium in Ulsan on the 2nd. Driven by the momentum of beating Lotte 2-1 the previous day, they decorated the weekend’s three-game series with a winning streak. July began in a good mood, rising from 6th to 5th place, overtaking Kiwoom Heroes, who suffered a come-from-behind loss to SSG Landers.토토 가입머니 즉시지급

Both teams played a tight 2-2 game until the 7th inning. Doosan took a 2-0 lead with ace Raul Alcantara giving up 2 runs in 6 innings, and Heo Gyeong-min’s 2 RBIs and timely hits with 1 out and bases loaded in the top of the 5th inning.

Lotte did not back down easily either. At the end of the 5th inning, Hwang Seong-bin made up for one point with an RBI and a timely hit, and then Jack Rex’s timely hit to tie the score at the end of the 6th inning equalized the score at 2-2.

The game flow changed in the Doosan attack in the top of the 8th inning. Doosan made the score 4-2 with Yang Seok-hwan hitting a two-run homer from the first base undefeated that knocked out Lotte setup man Koo Seung-min. 

Afterwards, Doosan’s bullpen quelled Lotte’s resistance without conceding and kept a 4-2 lead. The part where 11 left bases were left was a tear in the jade, but Yang Seok-hwan’s home run secured a valuable victory.

On the other hand, Lotte’s batting line cooled down after winning 1-0 with a finishing hit by Yoon Dong-hee at the end of the 10th inning on the 30th of last month, the first day of the weekend’s three-game series. While the pitchers did their part, the batters fell into a losing streak as they only scored 4 runs in 3 games. 

In the last game on the 1st, Doosan enjoyed the power of a home run. In the top of the ninth inning with a 1-0 lead, Kim Jae-hwan’s double hit on first base seemed to calm the atmosphere, but Kang Seung-ho’s solo homer exploded right away, widening the score gap.

Lotte took advantage of Doosan finisher Hong Kun-hee’s shaking in the attack at the end of the 9th inning and chased it 2-1, but was unable to take advantage of the continued scoring opportunity from 1 company 1st and 2nd base and knelt down. Doosan’s bench replaced the pitcher with Cheol-Won Jeong, but Kang Seung-Ho’s solo home run had a decisive influence on the win.꽁머니

Doosan hitters hit a total of 50 homers in 72 games this season. It is ranked second in home runs by the league team after SSG (74 home runs). The team’s batting average is 0.251, 9th out of 10 clubs, and the team’s score is the lowest with 288 points, but a single home run in the match is the driving force that allows Doosan to continue competing in the top 5.

On the other hand, Lotte is feeling the sadness of the ‘rifle unit’ with 28 home runs. The vicious cycle of giving up games while exhausting only the main reliever pitchers in the event of a series of residual bases, as in this weekend’s three-game series, seems to be repeating itself.
