Doosan’s Gwak Bin, who returned from injury, saved the team from a losing streak.
Doosan decorated the final day of the series with a victory in the home game against KIA held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 11th, with starter Gwak Bin’s 6 innings and 2 runs.
Kwak Bin won 4 wins (2 losses) of the season with 3 hits, 2 walks, 1 strikeout and 2 runs in 6 innings.
Kwak Bin established himself as Doosan’s ‘local ace’ with a respectable record of 8-9 and 3.78 ERA in 27 games last season.
However, a sudden injury came in May. He performed poorly against LG on May 7, allowing 6 runs in ⅓ innings. Back pain was a problem.
Kwak Bin returned to the NC game on the 31st after resting and rehabilitating in the 2nd division, but this time, his back did not work, so he went down to the 2nd division again.
On this day, in his comeback match, he reassured the fans with a good appearance. He proved himself the reason why he wore the Taegeuk mark at the Hangzhou Asian Games.
5th place Doosan recorded 28 wins, 1 draw and 26 losses, widening the gap with 6th place KIA (25 wins, 28 losses) to 2.5 games.스포츠토토
In the other lineup, Jeong Su-bin scored 3 hits in 4 at-bats and 1 run, and Kang Seung-ho led the victory with 1 hit, 1 RBI and 1 run in 4 at-bats.
KIA starter Yoon Young-cheol pitched well with 7 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 3 runs in 6 innings, but he suffered a yoke of defeat as he was not supported by other players.
