Doosan’s Lee Seung-yeop-ho completes his second series sweep since joining the organization.
The Doosan Bears won the ninth game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Hanwha Eagles 2-1 on Monday at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul.
Doosan swept the three-game series against Hanwha to improve to 27 wins, one draw and 24 losses on the season. It was the second sweep for Lee Seung-yeop-ho, who also swept the Jamsil KIA from Dec. 12-14 last month. Hanwha, meanwhile, dropped its third straight game to fall to 19 wins, three draws and 32 losses.
Doosan’s starting lineup was Jung Soo-bin (center field), Kim Dae-kim (right field), Yang Ji (catcher), Yang Seok-hwan (first base), Kim Jae-hwan (designated hitter), Heo Kyung-min (third base), Hong Sung-ho (left field), Kim Jae-ho (shortstop), and Lee Yoo-chan (second base). Hong Sung-ho was named to the starting lineup on the first day of the season.
Hanwha countered with Moon Hyun-bin (center fielder), Jeong Jeong-won (second baseman), Noh Si-hwan (third baseman), Chae Eun-sung (designated hitter), Kim In-hwan (first baseman), Lee Jin-young (right fielder), Jang Jin-hyuk (left fielder), Park Sang-un (catcher), and Lee Do-yoon (shortstop).
Doosan struck first in the second inning. Yang Seok-hwan led off with a grounder to third base, took advantage of a throwing error by third baseman Noh Si-hwan, and reached second before Kim Jae-hwan singled to center field. Heo Kyung-min flied out to center field on the first pitch, but Hong Sung-ho broke the 0-0 tie with a single to right. It was Hong’s first hit in his debut. It was also his final hit of the day.
In the third inning, Jung Soo-bin led off with a double and Kim Dae-ki singled to left to put runners on first and third with no outs. Yang Ji calmly hit a sacrifice fly to left field to widen the gap.
The Hanwha bats completely failed to capitalize on Doosan ace Alcantara. From the first to the eighth inning, not a single runner reached second base. The only hits came from Jeong Eun-won in the first inning and Jang Jin-hyuk in the fifth.토토사이트
Trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the ninth, Hanwha loaded the bases with consecutive singles by Kim Tae-yeon, Moon Hyun-bin, and Jeong Eun-won, but only managed to score one run on a single by Noh Si-hwan.

He was followed by Gun-hee Hong and Chi-Kook Park. At the plate, Hong Sung-ho, making his first start of the season, had a multi-hit performance, including the game-winning hit.
Meanwhile, Hanwha starter Kim Min-woo suffered his sixth loss of the season (1-0) after giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts in five innings. He is winless in his last five games. The offense was held to five hits and no runs off Doosan’s mound.
