The 8th episode of Doosan, where the setup man disappeared, found the owner again.
Doosan won 4-1 in a home game against the Hanwha Eagles in the regular season of the 2023 KBO League held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 6th.스포츠토토
Although they won with two home runs, Doosan’s height on this day was always the mound. It was a game in which both the starter and the bullpen had holes. Dylan Pyle, Kwak Bin, and Choi Won-joon left the starting lineup, and Jeong Cheol-won went down to the second team in order to self-restraint following the World Baseball Classic (WBC) drinking scandal in the bullpen.
The starting hole was filled by Jang Won-joon. I did my part with 5 and 1/3 innings and 1 run. However, it was not a good pitch to fill the vacancy of Jeong Cheol-won. Park Chi-guk blocked right behind with 1 and 2/3 innings, but someone had to block the 8th inning before closer Hong Kun-hee took the mound.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop chose Lee Young-ha (26). On the 31st of last month, Lee Young-ha was acquitted in the first trial on a case related to school violence at the Western District Court in Seoul. The prosecution appealed on the 5th, but as there was no problem with the appointment of the first team, a formal contract was signed with the club on the same day. He pitched in the Futures (2nd team) league game on the 1st and had a comeback match, and came up to the 1st team and pitched against Suwon KT Wiz on the 3rd and 4th.
Prior to the game on the 6th, coach Lee said, “I think it’s okay. I haven’t played since last September.” .I checked the condition, but there were no major problems today.
As coach Lee said, Lee Young-ha was the setup man for the 6th match. On the mound in the eighth inning, he gave up one hit to Roh Si-hwan, but caught all three batters, including two strikeouts. He used a variety of pitches such as fastball, forkball, and slider, and his highest speed was 149 km per hour. In the ninth inning, Hong Kun-hee, who took over the mound from Lee Young-ha, recorded a save, and Lee Young-ha also added a hold. It was a hold that was achieved in a whopping 588 days.
With the addition of Lee Young-ha, Doosan can regain control of the precarious bullpen. However, there is no return to selection. With 17 wins in 2019, Lee Young-ha is a card that can be used as a starter. He has been active in the bullpen for the last three seasons, but all of them were records he made after failing to start. However, this season, the starting attempt itself is not made. As he was late in preparing for the season, he only uses the bullpen. When asked about his selection, manager Lee Seung-yeop laughed and said, “(There is no possibility).”
