“Now, I hope you do your best as a member of the national team.”
It was a spectacular finale before the national team was called up.
Doosan Bears Kwak Bin led the team to an 8-4 victory by pitching 6 innings, allowing 8 hits, no runs, and no walks in the game against the KIA Tigers held at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 18th.
With the victory that day, Doosan raced to its 7th consecutive win. On the other hand, KIA suffered 5 consecutive losses.
Before the game, Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said about Kwak Bin’s vacancy, 스포츠토토 “Kim Dong-ju will start as a starter. However, he is not a fixed starter. It is difficult to give him a chance for 2-3 games. There are also Choi Won-jun and Kim Min-gyu. They have to show a good performance to be able to start again in the next game. “It will be possible,” he said.
He then smiled and said, “Actually, there is no pitcher as good as Kwak Bin on our team,” and then emphasized, “Not only for us, but for the other nine teams, there are players who are missing from the team. It’s not because of injuries, but because it’s for the good of the country, so I can handle it.” He did not forget to encourage the team by saying, “If the rest of the players take the place that Kwak Bin is missing and pitch well with the sense of responsibility that ‘I am the starting pitcher,’ the atmosphere will get better. I hope that our players will do well so that Kwak Bin can focus only on the national team for two weeks.”
On this day, Doosan’s batting lineup lightened Kwak Bin’s shoulders by producing a big inning of as many as 6 runs in the 3rd inning following the first run in the 1st inning. Kwak Bin also responded by pitching 6 scoreless innings.
Coach Lee said, “Kwak Bin has done his role. He finished his last start before being called up to the national team cleanly, so I hope he will do his best as a member of the national team.”
He continued, “The batting lineup brought victory by scoring a large number of runs from the beginning of the game. Soo-bin Su, who was on base 100% of the time, and table setter Rojas, who had 3 RBIs, played a leading role. Yang Eui-ji and Kang Seung-ho, who did their best as central hitters, were ranked 9th in the batting order. “I also praise Cho Soo-haeng, who recorded multiple hits,” he emphasized.
He added, “I would like to thank all the fans who came all the way to Gwangju even though it was Monday and supported us by watching the broadcast.”
