4 cancellations in 6 days…9-game road trip…pitching worries? “The bats need to break out”

“The batting lineup is the problem.”

The Doosan Bears and Lotte Giants played just two games in six days last month, from Aug. 29 to Sept. 3.

Games on the 29th and 30th were canceled due to rain, and although they played on the 31st, games on September 1st and 2nd were once again rained out.안전놀이터

With the cancelation of the second game, a game was organized for Monday, September 4, and both Doosan and Lotte were scheduled to play a doubleheader on September 9, forcing the team to play nine games in eight days.

Doosan and Lotte’s bats cooled off as the rain prevented them from practicing outdoors. In the three games, the two teams combined for just 11 hits. Doosan had six hits and Lotte had five.

The pitching staff did its job perfectly. For Doosan, Brandon Waddell threw six scoreless innings, while Park Chi-guk, Kim Myung-shin, and Jung Chul-won each pitched one perfect inning.

For Lotte, Barnes pitched seven innings of one-run ball (unearned). The only run he allowed was on a fielding error. Koo Seung-min followed with one inning of one-run ball and Choi Jun-yong closed out the game with one inning of scoreless relief.

“Brandon did his job well, and (Park) Chi-gook, (Kim) Myung-shin, and (Chung) Chul-won played a clean game,” said Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop ahead of Game 4.

“The batting lineup was the problem,” Lee continued, “It’s been a long time since we’ve played and we’ve been practicing indoors, so it might be different for everyone, but I think it might have a little bit of an impact.”

Acting Lotte manager Lee Jong-woon also said, “The pitchers did a good job. They pitched well for two runs, but in the end, we lost because we couldn’t hit. It’s a shame. We had our chances, but we couldn’t capitalize.”

Lotte’s starting lineup was Yoon Dong-hee (right fielder), Lee Jeong-hoon (designated hitter), Ahn Chi-hong (second baseman), Jeon Jun-woo (left fielder), Jeong Hun (first baseman), Nico Goodrum (third baseman), Jung Geun-geun (catcher), Noh Jin-hyuk (shortstop), and Kim Min-seok (center fielder). The starting pitcher is Park Se-woong. Lee said, “I put Lee Jung-hoon in the No. 2 spot. We organized the batting order so that we can concentrate, which is what the players have to do in the end,” Lee said.

Doosan will start Jung Soo-bin (center field), Jose Rojas (left field), Yang Seok-hwan (first base), Yang Ji (catcher), Kim Jae-hwan (designated hitter), Kim In-tae (right field), Heo Kyung-min (third base), Park Kye-beom (shortstop), and Lee Yoo-chan (second base). The starting pitcher is Raul Alcantara.
