The backup flew like a starter, and the strategy to catch the opponent off guard disturbed the opponent. Doosan Lee Seung-yeop made a monumental first series sweep with the revival of Hustle Doo. 

The 6th match of the season between Doosan and KIA held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 14th. Doosan, who had lost two consecutive matches in Lotte during the week, met KIA on the 12th and 13th and recovered a 50% win rate (16 wins, 1 draw, 16 losses) thanks to the good fighting of Kim Dong-ju and Choi Seung-yong. And on this day, with ace Raul Alcantara at the forefront, Lee Seung-yeop took on the challenge of sweeping the first series. Doosan’s most consecutive wins in a season is 3 consecutive wins, and during that time, they played baseball that was far from the keywords of sweep and winning streak.

In the 2nd inning, the 2nd and 3rd bases were unharmed, and in the 3rd inning, the chances for 1st and 2nd bases were destroyed, but in the 4th inning, the lower batting line composed of backup players created the first point with the same decisive power as the starting lineup. After two outs, Song Seung-hwan and Jo Su-haeng set the table for first and third base with consecutive hits, and Yoo-chan Lee, who is attracting attention as a post Kim Jae-ho, broke the balance of zero with a timely left-handed hit that slightly exceeded the height of the third baseman. 

In the 6th inning, leading 1-0, the detailed tactical baseball of the past Doosan Dynasty was revived. Leading player Heo Gyeong-min hit base, and Kim Min-hyeok went on base due to an error by the second baseman. Then, Song Seung-hwan calmly succeeded in a sacrifice bunt, and Jo Su-haeng widened the gap with a squeeze bunt that caught the opponent off guard. Embarrassed catcher Han Seung-taek was unable to throw the ball after the catch, and even Jo Su-haeng himself lived at first base. 

Doosan widened the gap further with Park Gye-beom’s 1 RBI hit while 2 out 1st and 3rd base continued due to Soo-bin Jeong’s choice of fielder. Even in the second out situation, Park Gye-beom tried to bunt on the first pitch, and the ball headed for an exquisite spot in front of the second baseman and became an infield hit. Second baseman Kim Seon-bin struggled to catch the ball and tossed it to first base, but the ball was not caught. At the same time, Park Gye-beom showed a strong will to survive with a head-first slide to first base. 

The road to the first sweep was not smooth. In the 7th inning with a 4-0 lead, Kang-ryul Kim brought the bases safely with a walk and consecutive hits, and then gave up an RBI to Sun-bin Kim. 4-4 match reset. 

Doosan did not stand still. In the 8th inning, Lee Yu-chan, who led the team, walked, and Su-bin Jeong made the first and third bases safely due to a throw error by the third baseman. Park Gye-beom, the protagonist of the 3 hits, decorated the final 토토사이트 stroke with a sacrifice fly, and Yang Eui-ji, who had been hesitant, put a wedge in the game with a left-handed two-run gun. Doosan escaped further with Yang Chan-yeol’s one RBI and timely hit in the chance greeted by Kang Seung-ho’s walk and Jeon Min-jae’s hit.

Doosan defeated KIA 8-4 and achieved its first series sweep since the launch of Lee Seung-yeop with three consecutive victories. Out of the blue tactical baseball, solid defense, and the performance of backups stood out. It was three days that revived the keywords that represented the Doosan Dynasty, such as Husseuldoo and Hwasu Byeonyagu, in the past. Also on this day, backup Park Gye-beom led the attack with 3 hits and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats, while Jo Su-haeng and Lee Yu-chan contributed to the victory with multi-hits. 

After the game, Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “The players showed their will to win through play without sacrificing themselves throughout the game. At the moment when he could have passed the flow to the opponent, Hosobi and a bold run base play came out,” he said, expressing his feelings of joy on the first sweep.
