Doosan put together a big inning in the bottom of the fourth.

“It was a game that showed the players’ determination to end the losing streak,” said Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop after the game. “We lost the lead right away after the first inning, but we were able to quickly balance it out with Lee Yoo-chan’s home run. The concentration of our batters, including Ramos, Jung Soo-bin, Yang Ji, and 카지노사이트 Kim Jae-hwan, who made a big inning in the fourth inning, played a crucial role in the victory.”

Ramos, making his first leadoff appearance of the season, went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored. The No. 9 hitter stole two bases on the day. They were his 26th and 27th stolen bases of the season. She broke her own single-season stolen base record. The previous record was 26 stolen bases in the 2023 season.

“Especially Ramos, who drove in three runs in the leadoff spot, played a key role in spearheading the offense, and we hope that Cho, who set a new personal best in stolen bases just over a third of the way through the season, will continue to do so,” said Lee.

“Despite the early loss of starter Choi Jun-ho (3 runs in 3⅔ innings), the bullpen of Lee Byung-heon (1 run in 1 inning (unearned)), Kim Kang-ryul (1⅓ innings), Kim Taek-yeon (1 inning), and Choi Ji-kang (1 inning) did their part to protect the lead,” said Choi. “Many fans came to Jamsil Stadium despite the losing streak. We sincerely thank them for their unwavering support.”
