There were no two defeats. The Doosan Bears, who brought out a customized lineup against Thomas Panoni, saw the effect.
Doosan won 8-3 in the 14th game of the season against the KIA Tigers of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on the 17th, recording 63 wins, 1 draw, and 57 losses.
Doosan and Panoni faced each other at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul just 11 days ago. Doosan, who was tightly bound by Panoni at the time, could not score a single run in 6 innings, and except for Yang Eui-ji (2 hits) and Kim Jae-ho (1 hit), the remaining batters were silent with no hits. In the end, the team lost helplessly 1-7.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop, who had not forgotten the pain of that day, made changes in the game against KIA on the 17th. The lineup is Su-bin Jeong (center fielder) – Jae-ho Kim (shortstop) – Seok-hwan Yang (first baseman) – Eui-ji Yang (catcher) – Jose Rojas (left fielder) – Seung-ho Kang (second baseman) – Gyeong-min Heo (third baseman) – Joon-young Park (designated hitter) – Cho In order of performance (right fielder), ‘left-handed hitter’ Kim Jae-hwan was missing. Instead, Park Joon-young, who performed well with a home run and a push-out walk in the game on the 15th, started as the designated hitter number 8.
Before the game, Coach Lee said, “(This is) the second time, so it will get better. Panoni was in such good shape that day. I couldn’t do anything about it.” “I’m going to try to win today. With Alcantara coming out, it’s a game I can’t lose,” he said, pledging victory.
At the same time, regarding the selection of Park Joon-young as a starter, “Panoni’s hitting percentage against left-handed batters (0.257)메이저사이트 is higher than when facing right-handed batters (0.227), but in the last match, left-handed batters, including Kim Jae-hwan, had a hard time. Park Joon-young showed a good performance in the previous game. “That’s why I let him go first,” he said, expressing expectations for Park Joon-young’s performance.
Park Jun-young, who was retired by a fly ball in his first at-bat, started the game in his second at-bat. He came out as the lead hitter in the top of the 5th inning, with the team ahead 2-1, and with the ball count of 2-2, he hit Panoni’s 5th pitch fastball and hit a solo shot that went over the left wall. This is his 4th home run this season and his 2nd consecutive home run.
Park Joon-young succeeded in getting on base due to an opponent’s error in his third at-bat, and swallowed his disappointment by striking out in his fourth at-bat. However, Doosan turned the situation around with a single home run, scoring 3 runs in the top of the 5th inning, including Park Jun-young’s solo shot, and was able to get one step closer to victory.
Placing Cho Joo-haeng at number 9 was also successful. Jo Su-haeng tormented KIA throughout the game with 3 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 RBI, and 2 runs scored. This is the first 3-hit game this season. This naturally relieved leadoff hitter Soo-bin Jeong, and this is also the reason why third hitter Yang Seok-hwan recorded three hits and four RBI despite second hitter Kim Jae-ho’s no-hitter.After the game, Manager Lee Seung-yeop also said, “The batting line played evenly and showed a well-organized appearance. Yang Seok-hwan, who showed clutch ability at every opportunity, and Park Jun-young, who hit a home run in two consecutive games in a tight situation, brought the victory.” (3 hits including a home run) (Pro) Kang Seung-ho continued the momentum with another record-breaking performance. Although it wasn’t a cycling hit, he shone sufficiently. I also praise Cho Soo-haeng, who recorded 3 hits in the 9th batting order,” he said, giving generous applause to the batters.
