“It must have been a lot of pressure, but he pitched his best game”
The Doosan Bears pounded out 12 hits in their ninth home game of the season against the SSG Landers of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Friday, extending their winning streak to four games with a 10-1 victory.
Doosan starter Kwak Bin earned his 10th win of the season with a dominant start (one earned run or less in eight innings), throwing 102 pitches, allowing four hits, three walks and striking out five. The first overall pick of Doosan in the 2018 Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) draft, Kwak-Bin reached the 10-win plateau for the first time in his six-year career, and his joy was compounded when he broke the record for most innings pitched in a game (previously 7⅓).
After the game, manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “Congratulations to Kwak-Bin on his first 10 wins. He must have been under a lot of pressure because he hasn’t won recently, but he pitched his best game of the season.” He also praised the bullpen pitchers 토토사이트 who pitched a lot in the three-game series in the middle of the week because Kwak Bin was in charge until the eighth inning.”
In the batting lineup, Kim Tae-geun, who made his first start in 20 days against KT Wiz on the 5th, went 1-for-2 with a run scored and a RBI, including sniping a runner out at home plate with a ‘laser throw’. Cho Su-hyun went 1-for-1 with a run scored and a walk, Heo Kyung-min went 1-for-2 with a run scored and a walk, and Kim In-tae-sa, who came in as a pinch hitter, hit a two-run double to help Doosan win its fourth straight game.
“I would like to praise Kim Tae-geun and Ahn Seung-han, who started in the middle of the order, both of whom did a tremendous job in the offense beyond expectations. Today, you could see the will to continue the winning streak in the players’ eyes, concentration, and every play,” he added, giving a thumbs-up, “and thank you to our fans for their unwavering support.”
