‘First mission accomplished’ Coach Lee Seung-yeop says, “Thanks to the fans, there will be good results in fall baseball and the remaining games” 

 He completed his first mission in his first year as manager. Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop quickly brought the team back to the fall baseball stage.

Doosan won 3-2 against LG in Jamsil on the 14th. With this, Doosan secured at least 5th place. Starting pitcher Brandon Waddell pitched at his peak, and the batters also stayed focused until the end and scored. Brandon, who completed his starting duties, Kang Seung-ho, who hit the game-winning hit in the top of the 9th, and Kim Myung-shin, who made a save in the bottom of the 9th, shined.

With this win, Doosan’s season record was 74 wins, 65 losses, and 2 draws. KIA’s chances of finishing 5th were eliminated with Doosan’s victory.메이저사이트

Doosan achieved the great feat of appearing on the Korean Series stage for seven consecutive years from 2015 to 2021. However, it faced a crisis as it ranked 9th in 2022.

After the 2022 season, Doosan selected Coach Seung-yeop Lee as the new head coach. In addition, we reconnected with Yang Eui-ji, who left the team in the winter of 2018. By investing 15.2 billion won over 4 years in Yang Eui-ji, they pledged to return to the postseason. And this year, the team stood up again and secured at least 5th place.

After the game, Coach Lee said, “First of all, thanks to the fans, we were able to play fall baseball. I have not forgotten the enthusiastic support from the fans from the first game of the opening game until today. Thanks to that, the coaches and players were able to gain strength. “I’m really grateful,” he said, expressing his thoughts on Doosan’s return to the postseason.

He continued, “I think there will be good results in the remaining games if our players do their best as they have done so far. “We will do our best so that the bench and players can become one and win every game,” he said. “Including Kim Myeong-shin, who made his first save since his debut, and Kang Seung-ho, who hit the game-winning hit, all the players were able to come together and win today.”Kang Seung-ho, who hit the game-winning hit in the top of the 9th inning of the game that day, smiled and said, “It’s natural for a professional player to perform well in every game, but today’s performance is more meaningful as it seems to have played in a game that confirmed advancement to the postseason.”

Regarding the postseason stage, he said, “I am overly nervous compared to the regular season. At least for me, that tension seemed to have a positive effect rather than a negative effect. “I think I’m more focused because a lot of fans come and cheer non-stop,” he said.

“But it’s still too early to think about the postseason. The starting point for the fall will vary depending on the results of the three remaining regular season games. “I will do my best in every game so that I can face this fall on a higher level,” he said.
