A three-game losing streak

7 Brandon wins – Yang Eui-ji’s Guitar’ Doosan won 2-0 against Lotte…a three-game losing streak

Doosan won 2-0 in an away game against Lotte Giants in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 3rd.

Doosan, which lost three consecutive games, remained in sixth place with 55 wins, one draw and 54 losses. Lotte finished seventh with 51 wins and 59 losses.

Doosan starter Brandon reported seven wins (3 losses) of the season by pitching six innings with five hits, four strikeouts, and one walk without losing a point.

Lotte starter Barnes, on the other hand, suffered a loss despite his pitching of five hits, four strikeouts, and one run (non-earned) in seven innings.

Doosan took a chance with runners on first and third bases with no outs due to a hit by leadoff hitter Kang Seung-ho in the top of the third inning and an opponent’s error. Since then, third baseman Kang Seung-ho has come home through a double steal and scored one point.

Brandon’s all-out pitching stood out on the mound. Brandon kept a one-point lead by blocking Lotte’s batters without losing a point until the sixth inning. Lotte blocked Doosan’s batters without additional runs by Barnes, but it rarely changed the atmosphere due to the silence of the batters.

Since then, Lotte has started to solidify its bullpen since the seventh inning. At the top of the eighth inning, Yang Eui-ji’s timely hit made one more run in the first and second bases with one out made by Kim Tae-geun’s hit ball and Yang Seok-hwan’s walk.

Doosan, which maintained its two-point lead until the ninth inning, finished the game with a 2-0 victory.
