“I won because of Jo Soo-haeng.”
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop praised outfielder Cho Soo-haeng’s performance while reviewing the game from the previous day (22nd) ahead of the game against NC Dinos held at NC Park in Changwon on the 23rd.
Doosan achieved a new victory against Samsung in Daegu the previous day, 3-1. He was a cohesive force with 3 hits and 3 runs scored. And the defense of right fielder Jo Soo-haeng could not be left out. In the bottom of the second inning, with one out and runners on first base, he cleared Samsung’s Cho Min-seong’s big batted ball with a jump catch in front of the fence, lightening the shoulders of starter Choi Seung-yong.레고토토
And in the bottom of the 5th inning, with one out and a run on 1st and 3rd bases, he prevented the run crisis by throwing out Kim Seong-yoon, who was rushing home from 3rd base when Pirella hit a fly ball to right field, with an accurate throw. Cho Soo-haeng broke the trend of Samsung’s defense several times, laying the foundation for victory.
Director Seung-yeop Lee did not miss this point. Coach Lee said, “Yesterday (22nd), we had 3 hits and they (Samsung) had 6 hits, and there were a lot of walks. “We got on base much less, but we scored 3 points with Yang Eui-ji’s 2 RBIs and Kang Seung-ho’s sacrifice fly,” he said. “Yesterday, we won because of (Joe) Soo-haeng. He emphasized, “We could have conceded more goals, but at every critical point, Soong-yi played very good defense and even made good throws, preventing the goals from being conceded.”
He continued, “We need players who can hit well, but we also need players who are good at defense and players who play invisible roles in defense. “I think yesterday was a day where this kind of player, Cho Soo-haeng, shined,” he praised.
On this day, Cho Su-haeng was again named in the starting lineup as number 9 right fielder. Soo-bin Jeong (center fielder), Jae-ho Kim (shortstop), Rojas (left fielder), Eui-ji Yang (catcher), Jae-hwan Kim (designated hitter), Seok-hwan Yang (first baseman), Seung-ho Kang (second baseman), Gyeong-min Heo (third baseman), and Haeng Cho (right fielder) will start. The starting pitcher is ace Raul Alcantara.
