The process was dramatic and the finish was beautiful. Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop won an unforgettable first victory in his debut after a close game that went to the 11th inning. 

The Doosan Bears won an exciting 12-10 come-from-behind victory at the end of the 11th inning of overtime in the opening game against the Lotte Giants of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 1st. Coach Lee Seung-yeop tasted a pleasant victory in his coaching debut match. 

The road to victory was arduous. Starter Raul Alcantara, whom he trusted even after scoring 3 points in the first inning, collapsed early with 4 runs in 4 innings, and Kim Myung-shin and Lee Hyeong-beom, who came up next, also showed difficulty in finding their way and faced the 7th inning, trailing 3-8. But there was no giving up. Lee Yoo-chan’s sacrifice fly, Rose Rojas’ timely hit, and Kim Jae-hwan’s 3-run home run tied the score in the 7th inning, and Lee Yu-chan’s exquisite squeeze bunt overturned the game in the 8th inning.

Doosan allowed the score to be tied again in the 9th inning due to Hong Geon-hee’s hunting, and went into overtime. And in the top of the 11th inning, Jack Rex allowed a timely hit, leading to 9-10. Doosan did not back down. After the 90 duo of Soo-Bin Sue and Kyung-Min Heo set the table on 1st and 3rd base safely with consecutive hits, Lohas attacked Kyung-Chan Moon’s first pitch and connected it with a thrilling come-from-behind 3-run homer. It was the moment that marked the end of the long game of 4 hours and 43 minutes. 토토사이트

Director Lee Seung-yeop said, “It is not enough to say that it is difficult. My throat was all rested. “One game was too long,” he said with a laugh. He thought the game would be a bit difficult in the process of reversing and reversing, but eventually won overtime. It’s a different feeling from a normal victory. It is a really meaningful victory,” he said, adding a special meaning to his first victory in his debut.

After the game, the Doosan club held a small celebration at the dugout at first base to celebrate coach Lee Seung-yeop’s first victory. Coach Lee enjoyed the joy of victory surrounded by Doosan players with a bouquet of flowers after being encouraged by Doosan owner Park Jeong-won. Doosan fans also applauded Lee generously without leaving the stadium. 

Coach Lee said, “It is better than when I was a player. Of course, when he was a player, it would have been nice if he hit a walk-off home run, and it would have been nice if his teammates did well, but now I feel a bit sad about it. Because he is a teacher and disciple rather than a colleague, he felt better after seeing the players perform.”
