[마이데일리 = 잠실 윤욱재 기자] It seemed to be the main character of the great record. But the last 2% fell short. This will be the spark to set another great record.
Doosan and LG double headers were held at Jamsil Stadium on the 12th. Doosan’s starting pitcher Hee-gwan Yoo was featured in the first game of the double header, which started at 2 pm. The focus of the game today is whether Yoo Hee-kwan achieves his career 100 wins. At the same time, Yoo Hee-kwan played well with one run up to the 4th inning, and the other line also supported 7 goals, and the atmosphere was ripe.
However, Yoo Hee-gwan kicked the rolled fortune. In the beginning of the fifth inning, which is the last gate to fulfill the victory pitcher requirement, he retreated from the mound alone, leaving 10 hits and 5 runs in 4⅔ innings innings. If he had caught one more out, he would have been the first left-handed pitcher to 100 wins in Bears history.
As Yoo Hee-kwan missed the record, a new record was born. That is, Lee Young-ha was named as the winning pitcher in the first and second rounds of the double header.
Lee Young-ha appeared as a relief pitcher in Game 1 of the double header and pitched 1⅔ innings with one hit and no score. Also in the second game, Lee Young-Ha made a rescue sortie and played without a hit for 2⅓ innings. With this, Lee Young-ha marked a page in history as the 6th consecutive double-header winning pitcher in KBO league history.
This is a great record that was born after 17 years. On June 23, 2004, KIA Yoo Dong-hoon won the first and second double-header matches against Hyundai at Suwon Stadium, and it took 17 years for Lee Young-ha to take over the baton.
Lee Young-ha was in the limelight as the next-generation right-handed ace with 17 wins in 2019, but this year, she had only one win before this game. His position was changed to a bullpen pitcher due to repeated difficulties as a starting pitcher. However, whether this was a phone violation, Lee Young-ha prepared an opportunity to raise her confidence by winning two victories in a day.
After the match, Lee Young-ha said, “I thought I would go out when I was losing by 10 points, but the coach seems to have given me another chance. I went out with the intention of blocking and helping the team, but I’m glad the game went well.”
Doosan is sprinting for six consecutive victories by adding Lee Young-ha’s valuable two wins, and now it can recover its 50% win rate by just adding one win. Autumn baseball, which had been far away, is being caught again. If Lee Young-ha, who has been planted in the bullpen, works hard in the future, ‘Miracle Doosan’ can shake the KBO league once again.
