‘Barnes 8K Perfect Match + Go Seung-min Final Hit’ Lotte beats Doosan and takes 3rd place alone

The Lotte Giants broke a two-game losing streak with Charlie Barnes’ revival and avenged the previous day’s loss to the Doosan Bears.

Lotte won 3-0 in the 4th game of the season against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 10th. He shook off the disappointment of kneeling 2-5 the previous day and succeeded in escaping from his second straight victory.

Lotte: Kim Min-seok (center fielder) – Ko Seung-min (1st baseman) – Jeon Jun-woo (designated hitter) – Rex (right fielder) – Ahn Chi-hong (2nd baseman) – Noh Jin-hyeok (shortstop) – Park Seung-wook (3rd baseman) – Yoo Kang-nam (catcher) – Yoon Dong-hee (left fielder) ) formed the starting lineup. Foreign pitcher Charlie Barnes was the starting pitcher.

For Doosan, Soo-bin Jung (center fielder) – Rojas (left fielder) – Jae-hwan Kim (designated hitter) – Eui-ji Yang (catcher) – Seok-hwan Yang (1st baseman) – Kyung-min Heo (3rd baseman) – Chanyeol Yang (right fielder) – Kye-beom Park (2nd baseman) – Yuchan Lee ( Watershed) faced Barnes with a batting line. The starting pitcher was Choi Won-joon, a native ace.

Lotte took the lead by getting the first run at the end of the third inning. Leading batsmen Yu Kang-nam and Yoon Dong-hee’s consecutive hits led the chances of first and second bases to the top batting line, and Ko Seung-min’s one-run double hit took a 1-0 lead first.

Additional points came quickly. In the bottom of the 4th inning, Lotte’s leading hitter An Chi-hong hit a solo home run over the left wall against Choi Won-joon, making the score 2-0.

Lotte starting pitcher Barnes also responded with a good pitch to the other line’s scoring support. Barnes gave no room for a counterattack by tying the Doosan line up with no runs until the second out in the top of the 7th inning.

Lotte ran away with one more run at the end of the 7th inning. Leading batsman Noh Jin-hyeok’s right-handed hit and Park Seung-wook’s sacrifice bunt followed by Yu Gang-nam’s one RBI double hit the team to widen the gap to 3-0 and solidify their winning streak. 안전놀이터

The Lotte bullpen calmed Doosan’s resistance without losing any points. Koo Seung-min, who took the mound with two outs on first base in the top of the 7th inning, hit four batters in a row until the 8th inning, and Kim Won-joong, who finished the game in the top of the 9th, put an end to the game.

With this victory, Lotte washed away the pain of the previous day’s defeat and maintained its sole third place. Barnes earned two wins with his first quality start pitching of the season. 

On the other hand, Doosan was unable to continue the upward trend after breaking three consecutive losses the day before. Starting pitcher Choi Won-joon did his part by allowing 3 runs in 7 innings, but bowed his head in silence from the other line.
