It has been about two weeks since Doosan won at Jamsil Stadium against SSG Landers on the 25th of last month.
KIA’s attempt to win 10 games in a row was frustrated for the first time in 5,140 days since July 30 to August 11, 2009.
In a selection match where Yang Hyun-jong (KIA) seemed likely to have the upper hand, Choi Won-jun (Doosan) won by decision.
Wonjun Choi pitched 5 innings, allowing 4 hits and no runs until he was replaced in the 6th inning because of a blister.
Choi Won-jun, who started as a starter for the first time in 25 days,
silenced the hot KIA batting lineup during their 9-game winning streak.
He blocked both the 1st and 3rd innings with a three-way throw,
received help from right fielder Jo Soo-haeng in the 4th inning with 2 outs and 1st base and in the 5th inning with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases.
Jo Soo-haeng watched both batted balls that passed behind him to the right and stably caught them until the end.
Jo Soo-haeng went 2-for-3 with two bunt hits and scored one point on offense.
Doosan Bears batting line targeted KIA Yang Hyeon-jong and took 2 points.
Yang Hyeon-jong could not hide his embarrassment
when his fastball below the zone was ruled a ball in a 2-ball-2-strike match
against leadoff hitter Yang Seok-hwan in the bottom of the second inning.
Seok-Hwan Yang did not miss the high fastball that followed and drew a left solo arch with a distance of 125 meters.
This is the 18th home run of the season.
KIA even exposed its sloppy defense in the bottom of the fourth inning.
Third baseman Kim Do-young missed leadoff hitter Heo Gyeong-min’s ground ball into the outfield,
Heo Gyeong-min reached second base with his quick feet.
After one out, Cho Soo-haeng sent Heo Gyeong-min to third base
with a surprise bunt and also succeeded in getting on base with a head-first slide.
Doosan traded an out and a score with Su-bin Jeong’s ground ball.
KIA aimed for a double play at first base, but the timing was late.
Doosan also won the battle of wits in the bottom of the 7th inning when Yang Hyun-jong went down.
When Ji-hoon Park was at bat with 2 outs and 2nd base,
KIA brought up Jang Hyun-sik from the bullpen, and Doosan brought up In-tae Kim,
who had 5 hits in 6 at-bats against the opponent, and In-tae Kim responded with a timely hit to right.
In the top of the 8th inning, when bullpen pitcher Park Chi-guk was on first and second base with two outs,
Doosan brought up closer Jeong Cheol-won and set up Choi Hyeong-woo with a fly ball to right field.
Yang Hyun-jong took the loss after allowing 5 hits (1 home run),
3 walks, 4 strikeouts, and 2 runs (1 earned run) in 6 innings.
Yang Hyun-jong, who accumulated 103 strikeouts on this day,
achieved a record of 100 strikeouts for the 9th consecutive year,
but was unable to smile due to the team’s defeat.
This is the third record in history, following KT Wiz coach Lee Kang-cheol and Jang Won-jun (Doosan Bears).
