“What’s good is what’s good” In the end, a hellish 9-game series including DH was completed… Seung-Yeop Lee ‘chasing for 5th place’, now it’s time for the bullpen

“It seems like there is a trade-off.”

Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 2nd. The game between Doosan Bears and Lotte Giants was eventually canceled due to rain. Canceled due to rain for the second day in a row following the 1st.

A situation that neither Doosan nor Lotte wanted. On July 20, the KBO announced, ‘If one of the Saturday or Sunday games between August 5 and September 10 is canceled, the game will be scheduled for Monday at 6:30 p.m.’ The game canceled on the 2nd was scheduled for the 4th.메이저놀이터

Doosan will play a double header against the Samsung Lions in Jamsil on the 9th. Lotte will also play a double header against NC Dinos in Changwon on the 9th. A total of 9 games were scheduled to be played from the 3rd to the 10th.

This has become the worst-case scenario for Doosan, which is busy with a long way to go. After finishing the series against Lotte, Doosan will play a three-game series against the KIA Tigers at Jamsil Stadium starting on the 5th.

As of the 2nd, the gap between 5th place KIA (55 wins, 2 draws, 50) and 6th place Doosan (54 wins, 1 draw, 54 losses) was 2.5 games. Doosan must secure as much victory as possible in the match against KIA in order to continue the fight for 5th place, the last match of the fall baseball season.

The 2023 KBO League match between Kiwoom Heroes and Doosan Bears was held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 23rd. Doosan Brandon. Gocheok = Reporter Park Jae-man pjm@sportschosun.com/2023.08.23/
Doosan announced Brandon Waddell as the starting pitcher on the 1st and 2nd. Brandon became the starting pitcher on the 3rd.

If Brandon starts on the 1st or 2nd, he could play in the last game of the three-game series against KIA. However, in the case of pitching on the 3rd, it became impossible to pitch against KIA.

Director Lee could not hide his regret. Coach Lee explained, “If it hadn’t rained, I would have Brandon and Alcantara play against Lotte, and I would have Choi Won-jun pitch on the 5th.” Coach Lee continued, “We had to focus on the KIA game, but Brandon can’t play. That’s what I’m worried about,” he said. “If Brandon and Alcantara go into the Lotte game one after the other, Brandon won’t be able to play against the KIA. We’ll probably suffer a loss.”

Although the starting pitcher cannot hit 100%, the bullpen was an opportunity to change the atmosphere. Doosan gave up games against SSG Landers on August 26th and 27th and against LG Twins on August 31st because their sure-to-win team collapsed. The fatal blow was that each player, rather than a specific player, collapsed one by one. As Pilseungjo was shaking in various places, it was difficult to make calculations. Coach Lee said, “We played well until the middle, but then collapsed from behind and lost. The players did very well, but I think we have fallen a little short.”

For the time being, we plan to play games without changing positions. In the end, the existing bullpen staff will have to hold out.

Director Lee said, “I think it’s a good thing because I have time to relax and clear my head.”

Welcome reinforcements also arrive. Kim Kang-ryul, who had been on the injured list since the 25th of last month, is about to be registered. Kim Kang-ryul recently returned to his prime by throwing a ball over 150 kilometers per hour. He pitched steadily during the month of August with an ERA of 1.13 in 8 games and 8 innings.

Manager Lee said on the 1st, “(Kim Kang-ryul) was good when he came up recently. The back of his knee was not good, but there was no pain after pitching in the bullpen, so he plans to join as normal.” It is scheduled to be registered at the Jamsil KIA exhibition on the 4th.
