Yang Ji’s veteran lead caught the wobbly pitch. Managers Kwak Bin and Lee Seung-yup both recognized Yang as the man of the match.

The Doosan Bears won the sixth game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the LG Twins 7-4 on Sunday at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul. With the win, the Bears snapped a three-game losing streak and improved to 30 wins, one loss and 29 ties on the season.토토사이트

Kwak Bin started on the mound and picked up his fifth win of the season (2-2) with six innings of five-hit ball, five walks, three strikeouts and two runs allowed on 115 pitches. He pitched like a native ace. His fastball tops out at 150 mph with a curveball, slider, and changeup, giving him two consecutive quality starts (his fifth of the season). It wiped out a 2-2 record and 8.31 ERA in two starts for the LG Electronics League this season.

“I wanted to end the losing streak the most, especially since I was disappointed in the last LG, so I really wanted to win,” Kwak said after the game. “I pitched my highest pitch count of the season, but I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to go the distance. I think senior (Yang) Willi must have been very frustrated. The ball didn’t go where I wanted it to go, but I was still able to win thanks to Willie’s experience,” he said, giving credit to catcher Yang Ji.

Kwak actually struggled with his pitches, giving up five walks on the day, most notably in the fourth inning, when he gave up a leadoff single to Heo Do-hwan and a walk to Hong Chang-ki to load the bases, but he got Park Hae-min to fly out to center field to prevent any further damage. With more balls in play, Yang was able to settle into a comfortable lead.

Doosan head coach Lee Seung-yeop said after the game, “In a tough game where we were on a losing streak, Kwak Bin did his job by throwing 115 balls. There were several crises, but the catcher did a good job of guiding the pitchers,” he said.

On March 7, Kwak-bin voluntarily left the game after giving up six runs in 1⅓ innings at LG Electronics, complaining of a back injury. He said, “The injury is fine now. The team has been paying a lot of attention in training. I hope to contribute to the team’s victory without any residual injuries in the future.”
