(Seoul = Yonhap News) Correspondent Choi In-young = Kiwoom Heroes were caught up with the Doosan Bears and won despite Lee Jeong-hoo’s three-hit and four-base streak.
Kiwoom and Doosan drew 3-3 in the 2021 Pro Baseball Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League match held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 18th.
Kiwoom maintains the 5th spot with the last ticket for the postseason, but has recently faltered with four consecutive losses. In the meantime, Doosan has won two consecutive wins and climbed to sixth place.
With the draw that day, the two teams maintained a tense relationship.
Kiwoom laughed in the selection match. Kiwoom Kim Seon-gi pitched 6 innings with 1 run. However, the tie in the ninth inning did not lead to their fourth win of the season.
Doosan starter Park Jong-gi allowed three runs in five innings.
In the batting line, Kiwoom’s 3rd batter, center fielder Jeong-hoo Lee, performed 4 at-bats, 3 hits and 1 walk, and 4 on base.
At Doosan, shortstop Park Gye-beom in the 7th hit 3 hits. The pinch hitter Kim In-tae only appeared in one at-bat and hit a decisive tie.
Kiwoom made it to second base safely due to Lee Yong-gyu’s infield hit in the bottom of the first inning and Doosan starter Park Jong-ki’s check and control error. Will Craig didn’t miss this opportunity and took the lead with a double double.
In the subsequent samurai first and third bases, Park Dong-won added one point with a sacrifice fly.
However, Lee Ji-young withdrew from the 1st run and was unable to escape 2-0.
Kiwoom had a chance to complete the base safely in the bottom of the third inning. However, with Lee Ji-young’s sacrifice fly, he only added one point.
Kim Seon-ki blocked Doosan’s pursuit until the sixth inning and maintained a stable 3-0 lead.
However, in the beginning of the 7th inning, lead hitter Yang Seok-hwan hit a solo shot from the left and allowed the first run.
Doosan immediately replaced the mound with bullpen Jae-woong Kim. Kim Jae-woong was in danger of first and second bases, but he prevented a run by inducing a dang-gong (Choi Yong-je) and a Byeong-salta (Kang Seung-ho).
Doosan followed by one point in the first eight innings. At 2nd and 1st base, Jaehwan Kim hit a double against Kiwoom Jo Sang-woo in the left middle to make it 3-2.
Kiwoom, who blew one-on-one and three-base opportunities in the bottom of the 8th inning, allowed a 3-3 tie in the early 9th inning, when Tae-Hoon Kim was hit by pinch hitter In-Tae Kim in the right time.
Kiwoom’s pinch hitter Park Byeong-ho went on base with an infield hit in the bottom of the ninth inning, but he didn’t take advantage of this opportunity again. The match ended after Lee Jeong-hoo and Park Dong-won were caught with a shot and a ground ball, respectively.
