Doosan’s form in the fall is frightening. The team reignited the third-place fight by sweeping rival LG, which was 2-9 this season.
The Doosan Bears won the 13th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the LG Twins 3-1 at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Tuesday. Fourth-place Doosan extended its winning streak to two games against rival LG and closed the gap on third-place NC to 1.5 games. They are 69 wins, 2 ties, and 60 losses on the season.
Starter Kim Dong-joo pitched six innings of two-hit ball (one homer) with two walks and two strikeouts to earn his third win of the season (five) in about four months, his first since May 12 against KIA in Jamsil. He was followed by Kim Myung-shin, Kim Kang-ryul and Jeong Chul-won, with Jeong earning his 12th save of the season. The offense was highlighted by Yang Seok-hwan’s tying solo home run in the fourth inning and Kim Jae-ho’s wedge double in the eighth.
Doosan head coach Lee Seung-yeop said after the game, “Starting pitcher Kim Dong-ju did a great job in a high-pressure game. “Yang Seok-hwan hit a home run at a crucial moment, and when we needed an extra run in the ninth inning, the best player in the team, Kim Jae-ho, came through,” said Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop after the win. 토토사이트
He also thanked the fans who filled the 23,750-seat stadium. “The players were united today in front of a full house. Thank you to the fans,” Lee said sincerely.
Doosan will look to sweep the three-game series on October 1 with ace Raul Alcantara. LG will call on Lee Ji-gang.
