After the game, Doosan head coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “The batting lineup played evenly and showed a cohesive performance. Yang Seok-hwan, who showed his clutch ability at every opportunity, and Park Jun-young, who hit a home run for the second consecutive game in a tense situation, brought us the win.”
Lee continued, “Kang Seung-ho continued to set the tone with another record-breaking performance. It wasn’t a cycling hit, but it was enough. I also commend Cho for his three hits in the ninth spot in the batting order.”
“On the mound, starting pitcher Alcantara did his job with a quality start, and the bullpen showed stability,” Lee said. “I can feel that the whole team is working together. Every game is important and we will do our best to show our fans how good we are right now.”
