Lost five consecutive games twice since then, and has not enjoyed the victory effect he has accumulated in a month.

Doosan faced an upward trend once again. He won seven consecutive games, met the league’s best ace, Eric Peddy, and lost 1-2 before running three consecutive games again. The anxiety about the ‘after-effects of winning consecutive games’ has already been erased. Until the 23rd, 9 wins and 1 loss in the last 10 games. He is in fourth place, but is 1.5 games behind the third-place NC Dinos. He is now aiming for a last-minute turnaround with a 3.5 game gap against second-place KT Wiz. 토토사이트먹튀

“I don’t remember the fifth consecutive loss,” Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop said with a smile. “I lost 1-2 against Peddy last Tuesday (19th), but I think he gave the feeling that the opponent could not relax as he followed until the end.” In addition, there were few hits in the match against Samsung on the 22nd, but they won with a good defense and a scoring hit when important. In that regard, I think it was a different power from the early and mid-season.”

The biggest secret to Doosan’s rise is the mound. He ranked first in the same period with an ERA of 2.20 over 10 games. Three starters, consisting of Raul Alcantara, Brandon Waddell, and Kwak Bin, were solid, and the fourth and fifth starting resources, including Choi Seung-yong (0.96 ERA in two games) and Jang Won-jun (1 ERA 3.00), were also good.

Above all, the bullpen’s performance stood out. While Kim Kang-ryul and Kim Myung-shin recorded zero ERA in seven and six games, respectively, closer Jung Chul-won also showed off his power with a 1.96 ERA in six games. On top of that, Lee Young-ha pitched seven ⅔ innings in five games and did not give a single run, and Hong Kun-hee, who stepped down as a closer, also joined the bullpen fight in the second half with a 3.60 ERA in five games.

Coach Lee said, “I feel like we’ve become stronger. The first condition is that pitchers are throwing well. Starting pitchers are doing their part in September, and the pitchers who went out to the middle and the closer (Jeong) Cheol-won are also good now. “Thanks to that, I feel like the cogwheel is rolling well,” he said.

Regarding Lee Young-ha, who recently became a new vitality in the bullpen, manager Lee said, “I didn’t give up a run, and my speed went up. Also, the slider comes out to the beginning of 140km. Control has always been a problem, but the strike rate seems to be increasing these days. I think I can watch it comfortably if I’m on the mound. He said, “I think I’ve found a lot more stability than in the first half.”

It is on the rise, but there is also one concern. Kwak Bin joined the Hangzhou Asian Games national team on the 23rd, creating a gap in the starting position.

“I think all the conditions are the same,” Lee said. I think it can’t be helped because it’s going for the country, and I’m thinking a lot that it’s not our option, so I hope we can get good grades. Some teams are missing three players, but (Kwak) Bin is also a big part of us. The role of the rest of the players filling the gap is important. The remaining games are less than 20 games, but they are different from the early and mid games. I believe the remaining players will do well,” he said.
