Will coach Lee Seung-yeop, who is a ‘novice manager’, be able to surpass former manager Seong-geun Kim, ‘Yasin’, in the first game of the second half?

The Doosan Bears are about to face the 10th match of the season against the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League KIA Tigers at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 21st. It’s the first game of the second half. 

Doosan, which suffered the humiliation of ninth place for the first time since its founding last year, finished the first half of the 2023 season in a good mood with 42 wins, 1 draw and 36 losses in the season. At the beginning of the season, they were in 5th and 6th places due to a series of injuries and various trials and errors, but starting with a victory over Lotte in Ulsan on July 1st, they won 9 consecutive victories, raising the rankings to 3rd place, 4 games behind SSG in 2nd place. Doosan’s 9-game winning streak was the first in 1853 days since the Daejeon Hanwha match on June 15, 2018, when Kim Tae-hyung was coach.

In addition, coach Lee Seung-yeop reached a tie record for the most consecutive wins in his debut season as a Bears manager with his victory against Incheon SSG on the 12th. Kim Yeong-deok (OB, May 22, 1982, Citizen Samsung Match – June 12, Daejeon MBC Match), Kim Seong-geun (OB, April 17, 1984 Daejeon Sammi Match – April 28, 1984 Gudeok Lotte Match) It was a moment when I stood shoulder to shoulder with him. If you win the KIA game on the 21st, you can write a new history as a rookie Bears coach.

The record for the most consecutive wins as a domestic coach in the KBO League is 10. In the past, three directors, including Cheon Bo-seong from LG in 1997, Lee Hee-soo from Hanwha in 1999, and Lee Kwang-eun from LG in 2000, did this. Coach Jerry Royster, the first foreign manager in the KBO League, took the baton of Lotte in 2008 and achieved 11 consecutive wins. 메이저사이트

Coach Lee, who is set to set a record, predicted ace Raul Alcantara as the starting pitcher for the Gwangju KIA match on the 21st. The season record was 17 matches, 9 wins, 3 losses, an average ERA of 2.03, and became a winning pitcher with a quality start with 2 runs in 6 innings in the recent match against Kiwoom in Jamsil on the 8th. Since the match against Suwon KT on June 2, they have been undefeated for 7 matches in a row. Against KIA this year, it was also quite strong with 2 wins, 1 win, and 0 ERA.

In response, KIA countered with Mario Sanchez, a new member of the family. Sanchez is a substitute foreign pitcher who became a KIA man with an annual salary of $280,000 on the 6th, and made a strong impression by making his debut against Suwon KT on the 9th and becoming a winning pitcher with 10 strikeouts and 1 run in 6⅓ innings.

Meanwhile, Woojin Ahn (Kiwoom) – Charlie Barnes (Lotte) in Sajik, Gwanghyeon Kim (SSG) – Casey Kelly (LG) in Jamsil, Eric Peddy (NC) – Ricardo Sanchez (Hanwha) in Daejeon, William Cuevas (KT) – David in Daegu Buchanan (Samsung)’s starting matchup was announced. In the first game of the second half, the Ace goes all out.
