Doosan Bears secured a winning series against Gwangju.
Doosan extended its winning streak to six games with an 8-3 victory over the KIA Tigers in the 14th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League on Sunday at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field to improve to 63-1, 57-1.
On the mound, starting pitcher Raul Alcantara was the star of the show. Throwing 106 pitches, Alcantara allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five in six innings to earn his 13th win of the season. The bullpen of Kim Myung-shin (14 pitches, 1 inning, no hits, no walks), Kim Kang-ryul (8 pitches, ⅔ inning, no hits, no walks), Hong Gun-hee (28 pitches, 1 inning, 2 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, 2 runs), and Jeong Chul-won (9 pitches, ⅓ inning, no hits, no walks, 1 strikeout) also performed well.
The offense, which was shut out by Thomas Pannoni 11 days ago, avenged itself perfectly. Yang Seok-hwan led the way with a 5-for-3, four RBI performance, while Kang Seung-ho, who continued his hot streak with a home run for the second straight game, and Park Jun-young went 5-for-3 with one home run and one RBI, and 4-for-1 with one home run and one RBI, respectively. Cho also lived up to his captain’s expectations, going 4-for-3 with one RBI. Kang Seung-ho, who hit a “reverse natural cycling hit” in the previous game, nearly matched his cycling hit with a home run, a double, and a triple.
After the game, Doosan head coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “The batting lineup played evenly and showed a cohesive performance. Yang Seok-hwan, who showed his clutch ability at every opportunity, and Park Jun-young, who hit a home run for the second consecutive game in a tense situation, brought us the victory,” he said, applauding the batters’ performance.토토사이트
“Kang Seung-ho continued to set the tone with another record-breaking performance. It wasn’t a cycling hit, but it was enough. “On the mound, starting pitcher Alcantara did his job with a quality start, and the bullpen that followed showed stability,” he said.
Finally, Lee Seung-yeop said, “I can feel that the entire team is working together. Every game is important, and we will do our best to show the fans how good we are right now.”
Doosan will start Kwak-Bin in the final game of the three-game series against KIA on April 18, looking for a series sweep and a seventh straight win.
