Doosan Bears continued their ‘6-game winning streak against Kiwoom Heroes.’

Doosan defeated Kiwoom Heroes 4-1 in the professional baseball 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League visiting game held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul on the 15th.

From the second game of the Jamsil doubleheader on April 21 to this day, Doosan won all six games against Kiwoom.

This year, Doosan is significantly ahead of Kiwoom with 7 wins and 1 loss.

On this day, Doosan’s ‘temporary starter’ Kim Dong-ju (5 innings, 3 hits, 1 run, 6 strikeouts) pitched well, and the bullpen also overwhelmed Kiwoom’s batting line, earning a valuable win. At the same time, the season achieved 40 wins (30 losses and 2 draws).

O’s balance was broken in the top of the 5th inning.

After one out, Doosan Heo Gyeong-min’s batted ball hit Kiwoom center fielder Won Seong-jun’s glove and fell on the ground, becoming a lucky double.

Heo Gyeong-min, who reached third base when Yang Eui-ji grounded out to first base, hit home with Kim Jae-hwan’s timely hit to right.

Kiwoom immediately brought the game back to square one.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, leadoff hitter Ko Young-woo got on base with an infield hit that rolled slowly toward the third baseman, and Kim Jae-hyun sent Ko Young-woo to second base with a sacrifice bunt.

Lee Jae-sang’s strong hit was blocked by third baseman Heo Gyeong-min, but with two outs and two outs on second base, Lee Yong-gyu hit a timely hit with an RBI to right, tying the score at 1-1.

Doosan scored the winning run in the 7th inning.

After one out, Henry Ramos hit a hit to right, and Heo Gyeong-min continued the opportunity to reach first and third base with a hit that hit the right outfield fence.

The next batter, Yang Eui-ji, hit a large sacrifice fly to center field that flew near the center fence, and third base runner Ramos comfortably scored.

In the 8th inning, the score was completely tilted towards Doosan.

Doosan advanced to 2nd and 3rd bases with one out thanks to back-to-back hits by Yang Seok-hwan and Kang Seung-ho and a sacrifice bunt by Jeon Min-jae, and Kim Ki-yeon added 2 runs with a timely hit to go up 4-1.

Kim Dong-ju contributed to the team’s victory by pitching well, allowing 1 run in 5 innings in his first start in a month since the game against the KIA Tigers on May 16.

Kim Dong-ju did not receive the starting win because he did not receive help from the team’s batting lineup, but he laid the foundation for Doosan’s victory by engaging in a tight pitching battle with opposing foreign pitcher Enmanuel de Jesus (6 hits, 1 run in 6 innings).

Doosan’s bullpen, which is considered the strongest this season, gave closer Kim Taek-yeon a rest, but went the remaining four innings without allowing a run.

Ji-gang Choi, who took charge of the 9th inning instead of Taek-yeon Kim, earned his first save in the first team.

On the other hand, the Kiwoom bullpen gave up 3 runs in 3 innings. 고스톱
