With the Doosan Bears confirming their advancement to the professional baseball postseason, all five teams participating in this fall baseball season have been determined.
Doosan defeated LG Twins 3-2 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League visiting game held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 14th.
Doosan, which had 74 wins, 2 draws, and 65 losses in the season, beat the KIA Tigers, which had 71 wins, 2 draws, and 69 losses, and was decided to participate in the postseason regardless of the remaining games.
Coach Seung-yeop Lee, the ‘national hitter’ who took charge of Doosan, gave the team the right to participate in the postseason for the first time in two years.
In addition, the LG Twins advanced directly to the Korean Series as first place in the regular league in 29 years since 1994, and KT Wiz ranked second and headed to the playoffs. The rankings of SSG Landers, NC Dinos, and Doosan depend on the results of the remaining games.
Even though Doosan had 10 hits that day, it was difficult to score a large number of runs, and then got the winning run in the 9th inning.
Doosan scored first with Kang Seung-ho’s infield hit to shortstop in the top of the second inning with two outs and runners on third base. After changing offense and defense, LG tied the game with Austin Dean’s 23rd solo home run of the season.메이저사이트
Doosan then got away with another run in the top of the 7th inning thanks to Kim Jae-ho’s squeeze bunt with one out and runners on third base due to an opponent’s error. LG tied the score at 2-2 when Lee Jae-won hit a solo home run against pitcher Jeong Cheol-won, who was replaced in the 8th inning.
In the last attack of the top of the 9th inning, Doosan took the lead again with Kang Seung-ho’s timely hit to the right, ending the game 3-2. In the bottom of the 9th inning, the team was on the verge of a comeback with no outs on first and second base, but Myung-shin Kim caught three batters, Austin, Oh Ji-hwan, and Moon Bo-kyung, with consecutive fly balls, confirming the team’s advancement to the postseason.
