The Doosan Bears, who were trying to win 11 consecutive wins in Gwangju, stopped running for a while due to rain. Now go back to Jamsil Home and prepare to write a new history.카지노사이트
Doosan won 5-2 against the KIA Tigers in Gwangju on the 21st, the first game of the second half, and ran a 10-game winning streak. It was the tying record for the most consecutive wins in the club’s history, set in 2000 and 2018. Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop set a new record for the most consecutive wins in a debut season as a Bears coach and tied the record for the most consecutive wins in a KBO domestic coach’s debut season.
Coach Lee selected domestic ace Kwak Bin as the starting pitcher to lead the team in its 11-game winning streak. Kwak Bin played a big role in 12 games in the first half with 8 wins and 2 losses, 65 innings, and an average ERA of 2.08. Even when the team was in jeopardy to the extent that the 50% win rate was broken last June, Doosan was able to rise to 3rd place thanks to Gwak Bin consistently taking on the role of a stopper for consecutive losses.
But the rain was a problem. Coach Lee predicted Gwak Bin as the starting pitcher for both the KIA game in Gwangju on the 22nd and 23rd, but it was canceled due to rain for two days in a row due to the influence of monsoon rain.
Director Lee decided to give Kwak Bin a little more rest after much consideration. The 11-game winning streak went to Brandon Waddell. Coach Lee met with reporters at the Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on the 23rd and explained, “I changed Brandon to go in first, and then Kwak Bin to pitch.”
Doosan will play three consecutive matches against the Lotte Giants in Jamsil from the 25th to the 27th. As long as there are no games canceled due to rain, Brandon on the 25th and Gwak Bin on the 26th are expected to pitch.
Brandon is in excellent condition enough to be entrusted with the new history of Doosan. At the end of June, he joined as a substitute foreign pitcher for Dylan Pyle and contributed greatly to strengthening the Doosan mound. Brandon recorded 2 wins and 1 loss, 26 innings, and an average ERA of 1.04 in 4 games he started, contributing greatly to the team’s rise from 6th to 3rd place. He struck out 26 while walking only 5, and his WHIP (on base per inning) was only 0.85, showing excellent pitching.
As Brandon took center stage with Alcantara and one-two punches, he found a sense of stability throughout, from the starting lineup to the bullpen. While recording all 10 victories in July, the Doosan team’s average ERA was 1.78, ranking first in the entire league. The starting ERA is 2.29 and the bullpen ERA is 1.00, both leading the league. On the 5th, when 5th starter Kim Dong-ju took the mound, he conceded 4 runs only against the Pohang Samsung Lions, and all other games were limited to 3 points. If the other line hits a big inning, the mound protects it, so it was possible to win 10 consecutive games.
Doosan was put in a situation where it had to rest for three days in a row because of the rain, but manager Lee thought positively. Coach Lee said, “Our players are not players who neglect exercise (because it’s raining), but they do well on their own. It’s good for pitchers to take a lot of rest. Since there are some players who are overworked in the first half, they will be able to take a week off (with the All-Star break) and have three days to spare, so they will be able to adjust their condition well.”
Can Doosan celebrate with their 11 consecutive wins in front of their home fans?
