4 consecutive losses. The defensive error parade cut off the possibility of escaping a losing streak.
The Doosan Bears are on a four-game losing streak. The first crisis since the start of this season. In mid-April, there was a 3-game losing streak, but this time it was 4-game losing streak. Doosan, whose team’s win rate had risen to 0.611 until it won three consecutive victories with a 5-1 victory over KT Wiz on April 22, has recently dropped to 50% with four consecutive losses. Including the game where they drew 1:1 after 12 overtime matches against KT Wiz on April 23, this means they are recording 1 draw and 4 losses in the last 5 games without a win.
It seems that the shock of the Daegu expedition has not gone away yet. On the 27th, Doosan won against Samsung Lions in Daegu 6-3 comfortably, but at the end of the 7th inning, Cheol-Won Jeong was hit with a home run by Oh Jae-Il and suffered a shock defeat, losing 6-7. After that day, the losing streak got longer. In the 3 consecutive matches against SSG Landers this weekend in Incheon, they failed to attack Kirk McCarty on the first day and lost 1-4, and on the 29th they collapsed 4-10.
In particular, in the game on the 29th, despite Choi Won-joon starting the mound, he lost many runs from the beginning and played a one-sided game. He also showed self-destruction due to a defensive mistake. The defense in the bottom of the 1st and 5th innings was crucial.
In the bottom of the first inning, after lead batter Choo Shin-soo walked on base, right fielder Rojas missed second hitter Choi Joo-hwan’s ordinary fly to right field. He followed the batting position well, but was unable to catch the glove completely and fell in and out. The situation where 1 out 1 could have been 1st base became 1st and 2nd base safely, and Choi Won-joon had to make the best of it to catch it with a ground ball, but couldn’t get over the last hurdle and Guillermo Heredia hit a double at the right time with 2 RBIs. It was SSG’s first goal.
Doosan, who had a difficult start with an error from the beginning of the game, lost the flow of the game completely with a run at the end of the 4th inning and an additional run at the end of the 5th. This time, two fatal mistakes were made.
Following Choi Won-joon, Kim Myung-shin, who kept the mound from the 5th inning, faced Choo Shin-soo in a crisis with 2 out 1st and 3rd base and induced a ground ball to the 2nd baseman. A situation where the inning can end as it is. However, Doosan’s second baseman Kang Seung-ho fumbled the ball several times and failed to handle the batted ball. In the meantime, batter runner Choo Shin-soo arrived at first base, and third base runner Park Seong-han scored. 토토사이트
The next situation was also embarrassing. Choi Joo-hwan’s batted ball flew to the left field in the 2nd 1st and 2nd base. Left fielder Song Seung-hwan, who was preparing for the catch, lost the direction of the ball at the end, or perhaps it was because the lighting hit it directly. The scorer recognized it as Choi Joo-hwan’s hit, not an error, but it was obviously a disappointing defense. Even with this shot, Doosan gave up one more point.
Standing in the third base dugout caught on the relay screen, manager Lee Seung-yeop’s expression was cold. In a situation where they are already experiencing a recent batting slump, there is no choice but to be disappointed as plays that have lost even the basics of defense come out one after another. Doosan needs a rebound now.
