Amidst the collective hunting of the bullpen, which the LG Twins believed, 3 consecutive wins, 3 consecutive weekend sweeps, and all opportunities to take the lead were blown away.

LG lost 5-10 in the third game of the season against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 16th. On the 14th and 15th, the uptrend, which had been on a winning streak by beating Doosan, ended the week.토토사이트

LG played the game smoothly until the 6th inning that day, with the pitchers showing off their good condition. Lim Chan-gyu, who was put in as a temporary starter due to the injury of right-hander Young-gun Lee Min-ho, did his part by blocking the run with 1 point while struggling with 5 hits and 3 walks in 3⅓ innings.

Lee Woo-chan, who took over the mound after one out in the top of the 4th inning from Lim Chan-gyu, also showed perfect pitching with 1 ⅔ innings, 1 strikeout and no runs until the 5th inning. Sidearm high school graduate rookie Park Myeong-geun minimized runs at the counter of the LG bench by handling difficult hitter Kang Seung-ho as a ground ball at the critical moment of 2 outs 1st and 2nd base in the top of the 6th inning and recording a scoreless run in 1 inning.

Hitters also showed concentration. In the bottom of the 1st inning, Kim Hyun-soo scored 1 RBI from 3rd base, Park Dong-won’s solo home run in the 5th inning, and Moon Bo-kyung’s 2-run home run in the 6th inning scored 4 runs. LG took a 4-1 lead by the end of the 6th inning and moved one step closer to sweeping the weekend 3 games in a row.

However, everything went wrong in the defense in the top of the 7th inning. Veteran right-hander Kim Jin-seong got a right-handed hit on Jeong Su-bin and a walk on Jo Su-haeng after two outs, and allowed a 3-run homer to Yang Seok-hwan to tie the game, and the three-run lead disappeared in an instant. 

With the start of the defense in the top of the 8th inning, LG showed its will to catch the game by putting setup man Jung Woo-young in. However, when Doosan Song Seung-hwan grounded the infield after one out, shortstop Kim Min-seong’s catch mistake became the reason for the defeat.

Jung Woo-young gave 1 RBI to Ahn Jae-seok on second base with 2 outs and the game turned 4-5, followed by Yoo-chan Lee with 4 bases, and the crisis of additional runs from 2 out 1st and 2nd base continued.

The LG bench put Yoo Young-chan in to put out the urgent fire, but even Yoo Young-chan bowed his head after being hit by 2 RBIs and 3 bases by Su-bin Jeong. After that, Yoo Young-chan sent Cho Soo-haeng and Yang Seok-hwan to first base with walks, causing a bases loaded crisis, and when Kim Jae-hwan was at bat, he was hit with two RBIs and doubles by Yang Eui-ji. The score went up to 4-10, and the game was virtually decided here.

Had LG defeated Doosan that day, it could have risen to first place over SSG Landers, the leader caught by the NC Dinos.
