LG won a 10-0 victory against Doosan in the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League at Jamsil Stadium on the 30th with starter Choi Won-tae’s good pitching and concentration on the batters.
LG, which won all three consecutive games over the weekend, continued to lead (53 wins, 2 draws and 33 losses). After breaking five consecutive losses against KT Wiz on the 27th, he won four consecutive games, completely changing the atmosphere. In addition, he had a perfect advantage against Doosan this season with 8 wins and 2 losses.
Doosan (44 wins, 1 draw, 41 losses), ranked third, fell into a five-game losing streak, losing all weekend games. The losing streak has continued since 11 consecutive losses were suspended against the Lotte Giants on the 26th.
LG confirmed the trade effect due to Choi Won-tae’s all-out pitching, a “new face.”
Choi Won-tae, who moved from Kiwoom Heroes to LG in a trade the previous day (29th), won his seventh win (4 losses) of the season with two hits, five strikeouts and no runs in six innings in his first appearance since his transfer. After the start of the game, he also broke his fifth straight game against Doosan with flawless pitches, including catching 14 consecutive batters.
LG’s batting lineup supported Choi Won-tae’s first appearance as a new family member by hitting all of his fourth starting hits of the season. Moon Bo-kyung and Park Hae-min had two hits and two RBIs side by side.
Doosan starter Brandon Waddell suffered his second loss (3 wins) of the season with seven hits, three walks, one strikeout, eight runs and seven earned runs in four innings.
Moon Sung-joo chose a walk after a nine-ball match against Brandon and stole the second base with a steal and shook the opponent’s battery. In the first and second bases with two outs connected by Austin Dean’s walk, Moon Bo-kyung gave the team a lead with a timely double with two RBIs.
In the second inning, Hong Chang-ki added a point with a timely hit to the right in the second base with two outs that woven the ball that hit Heo Do-hwan’s body and Park Hae-min’s sacrifice bunt.
LG scored five points in the third inning with a 3-0 lead, effectively deciding the game.
Son Ho-young hit a timely hit to the right in the first and second bases with two outs made by Kim Hyun-soo and Austin. Park Hae-min hit a timely left-handed hit in the bases loaded with two outs that continued with a ball that hit Huh Do-hwan’s body.
At that time, Doosan’s defense was shaken. Catcher Yang Eui-ji, who received a throw from left fielder Kim Tae-geun, sprayed the ball to catch Heo Do-hwan, who was aiming for third base. However, Yang Eui-ji’s third base throw missed, and Heo Do-hwan and batter Park Hae-min scored.
Choi Won-tae, who received hot scoring support, blocked Doosan’s batters with perfect pitching that did not give up any hits and walks until two outs in the fifth inning.
Doosan, which was tied to Choi Won-tae and turned helplessly, broke the silence with Kang Seung-ho’s left-handed hit after two outs in the fifth inning, but failed to change the atmosphere. In the sixth inning, Kim Tae-geun hit a double on the left line, but no follow-up hit came out again this time.
LG scored additional runs with Shin Min-jae’s ground ball in the fifth inning with one out and runners on second and third bases, and Austin’s timely double in the sixth inning with one out and first base, devastating the Doosan mound and confident of victory.
