(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Yoo Ji-ho and Nam-jik Han = If you take one step further, you will get a ticket to the Korean Series (KS).
Kim Tae-hyung (53), Doosan Bears coach, has a dream of winning the fourth consecutive year after advancing to KS and taking office for six consecutive years.
Doosan pushed kt 4-1 in the 2nd game of the 2020 KBO postseason playoffs (PO) held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul on the 10th.
Doosan, who won 3-2 in the first game the day before, caught even the second game.
Coach Kim is planning to finish the PO of 5 games and 3 wins in 3 games.
Coach Kim said after the 2nd round of the PO, “It is a very advantageous situation to win in the 1st and 2nd rounds. You can prepare for the KS easily when you complete the PO in the 3rd round by unfolding an all-out war.”
If Doosan wins the 3rd round of PO on the 12th, after four days off, they will play KS with NC Dinos, which is the first place in the regular season, starting on the 17th.
In the second game of the PO, he also found a sign of hope in the bullpen.
Coach Kim said, “It seems that the starter Choi Won-jun was pushed down in the fight against the opponent. It looked like he didn’t have strength, so he got off early,” and said, “(2nd pitcher) Kim Min-gyu barely passed the crisis, and Hong Kun-hee was 2⅓innings in an important situation. I stopped well.”
Choi Won-joon, who started on this day, only digested 2⅔innings (5 hits and 1 goal) and went down the mound.
Kim Min-gyu, who started in the 3rd inning, threw 1 inning (3 hits free), and Park Chi-guk blocked 2 innings with no hits.
Hong Kun-hee blocked 2⅓ innings with no hits, and passed the ball to Lee Young-ha, finishing the ninth inning.
Director Kim said, “Hong Kun-hee liked the ball, so I left him 2⅓ innings. In the first place, Hong Kun-hee threw only 1 inning and tried to put Lee Seung-jin.”
Lee Young-ha, who threw 31 balls in the first game, overcame the burden of continuous fights and blocked one inning with no hits.
Director Kim, who visited the mound in the ninth episode and talked to Lee Young-ha briefly, said, “Do not think of throwing at 150 km/h, put it in the middle.”
Doosan will start pitching 20 regular season pitcher Raul Alcantara in the 3rd round of PO.
