Before the game, manager Yeom said about Doosan’s starter Alcantara’s fastball being well captured the day before, “The timing of the fastball even took a slider. That’s why we focused on the timing of the fastball.” Even if he throws a , I hope he hits the first pitch perfectly.”
Coach Lee said, “Yesterday, with 4 errors, I actually played a bit embarrassing game. You shouldn’t repeat the same mistake the day before.” .LG is very fast and maneuvers a lot. If the opponent sees a gap, they run, so there are a lot of things to pay attention to, but I believe they can block it well.”
Plutko had a 1-win, undefeated ERA of 1.59, and Kwak Bin had a 1-win, undefeated ERA of ‘0’. The power struggle between the two also shined in today’s match. The Doosan batters had only one hit without a run against Plutko until the 5th inning. The LG batters also had only 4 hits and no points until the 5th inning against Gwak Bin.
Plutko treated Heo Gyeong-min, Su-bin Su, and Yang Seok-hwan as float balls in the first episode, and then induced Kim Jae-hwan, Yang Eui-ji, and Lohas into float balls in the second episode. In response, Kwak Bin induced all three batters to infield ground balls in the first inning, then put Austin and Moon Bo-kyung out with infield ground balls, respectively, in the second inning. He allowed Kim Min-seong a left-handed hit, but Park Dong-won was caught with a catcher flyout to end the inning.
In the 3rd inning, Plutko also took out the Doosan lineup. In response, Kwak Bin gave Park Hae-min a left-handed hit after one out in the bottom of the third inning, but Hong Chang-ki handled a fly ball to center fielder and ended the inning by stopping Park Hae-min from stealing second base when Moon Seong-joo was at bat.
Plutko’s no-hit streak was broken in the 4th inning. After one out, Sue-bin hit him with a double that landed inside the right field. Subin Jeong went to third base when Yang Seok-hwan’s midfielder floated ball, but Kim Jae-hwan retreated with a shortstop float and failed to score. Kwak Bin never backed down from Plutko’s strong fighting. After two outs in the 4th inning, he gave Austin a left-handed hit, and after 2 outs in the 5th inning, he gave away a double to Seo Geon-chang, but all the subsequent batters were eliminated with regular hits.
At the beginning of the 5th inning, lake rain came out. Doosan’s 2nd out 1st base chance. Song Seung-hwan’s straight hit from the right field was succeeded by Moon Seong-joo’s diving catch. Powerful applause from LG fans on the first base side poured in.
‘0’ was continuously engraved on the electronic display board at Jamsil Stadium. Doosan had a chance to get 2 out and 1st base in the top of the 6th inning, but LG’s homemaker Park Dong-won sniped Sue-bin’s second base steal with an accurate throw.
And the bottom of the 6th inning that followed. It was the winning point of the match that day. The tense flow of the luxury pitcher’s battle was overturned by a foot in an instant. Leading batter Hong Chang-ki went on base with a walk, followed by Moon Seong-joo with a sacrifice bunt. He ordered a sacrifice bunt for Moon Seong-joo, who had the highest feeling of hitting. It was a bold win at a fast tempo on the LG bench, which was considered a one-point match. However, Yang Eui-ji’s quick throw to second base led to Hong Chang-ki being out and one company to first base. 바카라
The next hitter was Kim Hyun-soo, who swept 3 RBIs and doubled in the 4th inning the previous day. Kwak Bin kicked up the low slider (138km) on the 4th pitch and scored an exquisite right-handed hit. From here, LG’s ‘Dakgong’ shined. Moon Seong-joo made use of his quick feet and landed on third base. Then, Austin threw a big left fielder’s sacrifice hit on the first pitch (148km) and called Moon Seong-joo home.
For Doosan, if it was cut off here, it would have been able to plan a counterattack in the remaining innings. However, the follow-up Mun Bo-kyung took Gwak Bin’s first 147km fastball and split it in the middle right. To catch first base runner Kim Hyeon-soo, Doosan’s outfield relay play continued, but Kim Hyeon-soo, who sprinted with all his might, succeeded in scoring. In the process, Kang Seung-ho’s home throw was missed by Yang Eui-ji, and even runner Moon Bo-gyeong, who was on third base, swept home. 3-0. Moon Bo-kyung, who ran with all his might, took a breather in the dugout for a while before going on defense in the top of the 7th inning.
This season, LG is running without delay according to the situation. In the past, during the Nexen (currently Kiwoom) headquarters, coach Yeom made the team a geopo corps in line with the characteristics of a relatively small home stadium (Mokdong Baseball Stadium). However, LG, which uses the spacious Jamsil Stadium as its home, changed the team color to ‘running baseball’. The bottom of the 6th inning on this day was a scene where LG’s changed ‘Dak Gong’ baseball could be seen. LG recorded 25 stolen bases this season before this game, ranking first among 10 clubs in stealing (2nd with 10 Doosan).
Plutko, the LG starter, fought hard with 1 hit, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings (98 pitches), eventually succeeding in achieving 2 wins. Following this, Kim Jin-seong, Jung Woo-young, Ham Deok-joo (⅔ innings, 1 run), and Lee Jeong-yong (⅓ innings) came out one after another to protect the team’s victory. On the other hand, Doosan starter Gwak Bin was unfortunately defeated without receiving support for scoring. For Doosan, Soo-bin Jeong got 2 hits and Jae-hwan Kim got 1 hit. Doosan made up for one point with Kim Jae-hwan’s right-handed hit from second out and second base in the top of the ninth inning, but the follow-up Yang Eui-ji stopped at the right fielder’s floating ball and could not overturn the game. Still, Kwak Bin received generous applause from Doosan fans by performing a reverse fight with 6 hits, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and 3 runs (2 earned) in 7⅓ innings.
