The Doosan Bears immediately fell into a two-game losing streak after five consecutive victories. The double hit from the decisive full-base opportunity and the painful scene of missing a late base cover and ordinary double batted ball in defense led to a complete defeat.
Doosan lost 1-6 against Suwon KT WIZ on May 19th. Doosan, who fell into two consecutive losses, is threatened with a 50% win rate again with 19 wins, 1 draw and 18 losses in the season.
On this day, Doosan put Choi Seung-yong on the starting mound. Choi Seung-yong gave up consecutive hits to Kim Min-hyuk and Moon Sang-cheol after one run at the end of the first inning. In the ensuing 2nd out 1st and 3rd base crisis, Seong-Woo Jang scored an RBI right-handed hit at the right time and scored the first run.
Doosan, which started a counterattack, succeeded in tying the score 1-1 with Yang Eui-ji’s walk, Kim Jae-hwan’s hit, and Yang Seok-hwan’s 1 RBI after a run in the top of the 4th inning. Following this, Rojas’ hit came out and he seized the golden opportunity with one out and full base.
However, the follow-up hitter Yang Chan-yeol hit a ground ball to second base. While first base runner Rojas hesitated to avoid being tagged out, opponent second baseman Lee Sang-ho threw home and succeeded in a force-out. Catcher Seong-Woo Jang, seeing Lohas late in advancing to second base, threw the ball to second base, completing a double-out. It was the worst result that came out of a situation where they should have been aiming for a turnaround by riding on the momentum.
Doosan took the lead again at the end of the 4th inning when Choi Seung-yong threw a 112km/h curveball to Alford with no second base left, leading to a 120m-distance 2-run home run.
It was at the end of the 5th inning that the game flow was completely taken away. Defense was a problem. After one out, when Choi Seung-yong grounded Kim Min-hyeok to first base, the base cover was slightly delayed and allowed an error in the infield hit. Choi Seung-yong, who was hit by Moon Sang-cheol, seemed to end the inning by inducing Park Byeong-ho to hit a ground ball to second base.
However, second baseman Lee Yu-chan made the mistake of missing a normal ground ball. And Kim Min-hyeok, who advanced to third base, dug into the home base and scored an extra point. Lee Yu-chan belatedly threw home, but was judged safe by a narrow margin.
In the end, the Doosan bench immediately replaced Choi Seung-yong with Park Jeong-soo. Manager Lee Seung-yeop’s wish, “I hope Choi Seung-yong can throw up to 100 pitches and play long innings,” never came true. The changed pitcher, Park Jeong-soo, gave Alford an RBI and a timely hit, and Kim Jun-tae gave up an additional run with a push-off ball. In this scene, Doosan, completely deprived of the winning spirit, helplessly gave up the game without any counterattack.
Doosan seemed to be reviving the spirit of ‘Hustle Doo’ in the process of winning 5 games in a row. In particular, the strong team defense was revived and the performance to press the opponent was excellent. However, a picture that was somewhat different from the good performance of the game that day came out one after another. Even if it wasn’t until the hobi, it was baseball that was not like Doosan to make an unfortunate miss in basic defense.스포츠토토
Now that the losing streak should not be extended any longer, Doosan is aiming to escape from its second consecutive loss by placing “ace” Raul Alcantara on the starting mound in the match against KT in Suwon on the 20th. In the atmosphere of an upward trend, a very disappointing 2-game losing streak came out.
