Technical support issues
Doosan avenged its loss to Lotte the previous day (the 7th) and escaped its second consecutive loss. They maintained 4th place with 71 wins, 2 draws, and 63 losses. On the other hand, Lotte was unable to continue its winning streak the previous day and remained in 7th place with 65 wins and 72 losses, further increasing the possibility of being eliminated from the fall baseball league.
Doosan's starting pitching, Brandon Waddell (registered name Brandon), stood out. Brandon pitched 87 pitches over 6 innings against the Lotte lineup, allowing 1 hit, 1 walk, 8 strikeouts, and no runs.
He became the winning pitcher and recorded his 11th win (3 losses) of the season. Lotte starting pitcher Charlie Barnes also pitched well, allowing 2 runs in 6 innings, but became the losing pitcher due to the batting lineup being silent, and suffered his 10th loss of the season (11 wins).
Doosan broke the tight pitching battle first. In the bottom of the fourth inning, leadoff hitter Yang Seok-hyeon reached base with a double, and follow-up hitter Yang Eui-ji hit a timely hit to score the first run. Additional points followed.
Kim Jae-hwan's hit created a chance for first and third base, and Kang Seung-ho, who came out to bat, hit a sacrifice fly to make it 2-0.
Doosan succeeded in ‘protecting baseball’. Lotte made up for one run in the top of the 8th inning with Lee Jeong-hoon's double and Ahn Kwon-soo's timely hit, but the chase ended there.
Doosan closer Jeong Cheol-won allowed back-to-back hits by Yoo Kang-nam and pinch hitter Han Dong-hee after two outs in the top of the ninth inning, putting him on first and second base, but he succeeded in saving the game by striking out Kim Min-seok, who came on as a pinch hitter, and earned his 13th save of the season (6 wins, 5 losses, 11 holds). Raised it.
