KIA is also in jeopardy in second place despite the controversial foreign input…I got on the bus with Doosan. It’s gone

Doosan suffered consecutive losses even after KIA took the mound as a substitute for controversy. After losing the No. 1 ranking to LG, Doosan’s No. 2 ranking is in jeopardy.

KIA suffered an 8-9 come-from-behind defeat against Doosan in the “2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League” held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Tuesday after fierce battle. An away match on the weekend was confirmed as the “Losing Series” until the team lost in the bottom of the 11th inning of overtime the previous day.고수익알바

KIA, which fell to second place for the first time in 59 days on the previous day, had 36 wins, 26 losses and one draw, and had a gap of 1.5 games with LG (38 wins, 25 losses, two draws), which secured four consecutive wins in away matches against KT. Doosan (37 wins, 27 losses, two draws), which is ranking third with five consecutive wins, is also ahead in win rate without a gap.

On the day, Kia Tigers’ new foreign player Cam Aldred took the mound as starting pitcher. Under the new foreign player system introduced this year, the team is replacing Will Crow who injured his right elbow. However, some raise suspicions that Kia is trying to expand its options, such as replacing Crow with a rehabilitation player and replacing Aldred in some cases.

Aldred got off to a fresh start with strong support from the batters. Amidst errors by the opponent team in the first inning, Kia scored two runs on Choi Hyung-woo’s double and Lee Woo-sung’s hit, and allowed two runs on hits by Park Chan-ho and Choi Hyung-woo in the second inning as well. In the third inning, Han Jun-su’s one-run homerun was also allowed to lead the game 5-0.

However, Aldred lost ground from the bottom of the third inning. Giving up one run by walking and two hits in the bottom of the third inning, Aldred had two walks and two hits to cause a full base crisis, before being hit by timely hit by Lee Yoo-chan and Cho Soo-haeng. As Lim Ki-young, who pitched as a relief pitcher at 3-5, was hit by a sacrifice hit and an upset double from Yang Eui-ji, Aldred’s earned run increased to six.

In the top of the fifth inning, Yang Seok-hwan gave the Doosan Bears a one-run homer to lead the game 7-5. With the bases loaded with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning with the score tied 7-6, Lee Yoo-chan’s infield hit and Cho Soo-hwan’s right-handed hit added two more runs. For Kia, Lee was out on a grounder to shortstop for the first time, but it was painful to become safe after video review.

KIA chased down to one point in the top of the ninth inning with Socrates Brito’s two-run homer. However, the game ended when Choi Won-jun was struck out swinging on a fastball by Doosan’s right-handed rookie Kim Taek-yeon.

Doosan, which has been overloaded with a series of extra innings recently, had a bad news as starter Kim Yoo-sung allowed only one out count and allowed two runs in the first inning. Kim Myung-shin, who took the mound afterwards, also allowed three runs in three ⅔, but won his second lucky win (one loss) due to an explosion in the batting lineup. Kim Taek-yeon won his second save (two wins) by allowing one hit, one strikeout and no run in the ⅔ innings.

In the batting lineup, Yang Eui-ji, the top scorer (45.59 percent) this year, played the role of the third designated hitter with three hits and two RBIs, including a come-from-behind final hit. No. 8 Lee Yoo-chan (1 point) and No. 9 Cho Su-haeng (2 points) combined for four hits and four RBIs, showing off their lower-ranking batters of fear.
