Time was just passing by. ‘Genius shortstop’ Kim Jae-ho (38), who once led Doosan in defense, provided an excuse for a come-from-behind defeat with two painful catch mistakes.

The 9th confrontation of the season between Doosan and KT in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 4th.메이저놀이터

Doosan succeeded in scoring the first goal in the second inning after preventing the bases loaded crisis with two outs in the first inning with Choi Seung-yong, a rookie left-hander. After one shot, Yang Seok-hwan’s missed heavy hit followed by Jose Rojas fired a preemptive two-run shot, superior to KT substitute starter Lee Seon-woo. With a full count, he hit the slider (119 km) on the ninth pitch and reported the 10th gun of the season. The moment he rose to third place alone in the home run category.

Joy briefly gave the atmosphere to the opponent with a defensive mistake in the second inning, leading 2-0. After one out, Lee Ho-yeon was at bat. The ball landed in an ambiguous place between the third baseman and the left fielder, and shortstop Kim Jae-ho ran quickly and tried to handle the ball, but was unable to catch the ball at once and allowed the batter runner to second base. It was a mistake. Starter Choi Seung-yong, who was on the mound, contributed a 2-3 turnaround with Kim Sang-soo’s 1 RBI double and Kang Baek-ho’s 2 RBIs in a timely hit with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases, which continued with pinch hitter Park Kyung-soo’s walk.

Another mistake was made in the third inning when the score was 2-3. With no runners on second base, first baseman Yang Seok-hwan failed to properly catch Hwang Jae-gyun’s batted ball. He succeeded in blocking the rolling ball, but was unable to pick up the ball because he was in a hurry during the catching process. Fortunately, this time Choi Seung-yong caught the follow-up Lee Ho-yeon with a floating ball in center field, and the error did not lead to a run.

The third mistake was also Kim Jae-ho. In the 5th inning, when the score was 2-4, Moon Sang-cheol’s grounder catch with 1 out and 2nd baseman failed. The one-bound ball bounced off the glove, and he quickly picked it up and made a throwing motion, but Sang-cheol Moon had already reached first base. Kim Jae-ho swallowed the regret of his mistake with a sad smile. Lee Young-ha, who was shaken, sent the next hitter, Hwang Jae-gyun, on a walk at the end of the 8th pitch and was loaded with bases, but caught Lee Ho-yeon with a double stroke and prevented an additional run.

Doosan eventually lost 2-5 to KT and fell into a pit of two consecutive losses. The season record was 24 wins, 1 draw and 24 losses, and even the 50% win rate was at stake. In order to overcome the crisis, it seems that we must first find stability in the defense.
