“This is the most important series.”
Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop expressed his will to win the메이저놀이터 three-game series against the KIA Tigers in Gwangju over the weekend. In the Jamsil game against SSG Landers on the 14th, Doosan produced a comeback in the bottom of the 9th inning when they were down 0-2, and won 4 times in a row.
Doosan, ranked 6th, trailed KIA, ranked 4th, by one game. Driven by an upward trend, they are aiming to catch up or make a comeback in the weekend series against KIA, which begins on the 15th. This year’s team record is also ahead with 8 wins and 4 losses.
Moreover, the first to third starters will all appear, including Brand Waddell on the 15th, Raul Alcantara on the 16th, and Kwak Bin on the 17th. I’m also hoping for a third win in a row. KIA’s batting line has been hitting actively lately, so it looks like it will be a series of spears and shields.
Coach Kim Jong-guk mentioned Doosan’s expected starting lineup before the game and laughed, saying, “Did you set the pitcher rotation like this (on purpose)?” He then asked, “What should we do? We have domestic pitchers and young pitchers going out today and tomorrow. I hope we can make it comfortable without any burden.”
For KIA, rookie Yoon Young-cheol will be the starting pitcher on the 15th, and Hwang Dong-ha, a second-year high school graduate, will be the starting pitcher on the 16th. If you look at the strength of the starters, Doosan has the upper hand. For Doosan, this is a three-game series that they cannot back down from in order to secure a ticket to fall baseball.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Each series has been important since two weeks ago. I think this three-game series is the most important. I want to show a good performance as the starting one-two three is going out. If we don’t worry about the one-game difference against Kia and apply well as we have done since the camp, it will be a good game. “You can do it. The results are what comes after that,” he said.
Doosan’s starting lineup is Su-bin Jeong (center fielder), Jae-ho Kim (shortstop), Seok-hwan Yang (designated hitter), Eui-ji Yang (catcher), Jae-hwan Kim (left fielder), Seung-ho Kang (first baseman), Gyeong-min Heo (third baseman), Gye-beom Park (second baseman), and Haeng Cho (right fielder). The starting pitcher is Brand Waddell.
