Doosan Bears rookie Kim Yu-seong (21), who was battered in the second game, was eventually sent to the second group. Still, there is one thing the command tower never does. It’s all about blaming the players. Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “I am reflecting internally,” and promised not to repeat the same situation next time.
Director Lee Seung-yeop met with reporters at Jamsil Stadium on the 5th and said, “I am reflecting internally. If the same situation comes next, he talked a lot about how to deal with it.”
Kim Yoo-seong came down the mound after showing a hunting game with 3 hits (2 homers), 5 walks and 5 runs in 1 inning, pitching in relief against Hanwha in Jamsil on the 4th. In the beginning of the 5th inning, when the team was trailing 2-3, Kim Yu-seong climbed the mound in a crisis with the 1st and 2nd bases unharmed. However, as a result he failed to fulfill his duties, scoring 5 runs. Kim Yu-seong pitched 51 pitches. Eventually, the tide turned here, and the team lost 3-10. Kim Yoo-seong is now scheduled to take a selection class in the 2nd division.
Regarding the background of Kim Yu-seong’s introduction, coach Lee Seung-yeop explained, “Choi Seung-yong threw more than 30 balls the day before yesterday (2⅓ innings against Hanwha on the 3rd) and couldn’t come out. So Kim Yu-seong was warming up first.”
On this day, Doosan made its first debut with foreign pitcher Dylan. Director Lee said, “Originally, Dylan’s planned number of pitches was 80. He planned to change it after the 4th inning. However, he expressed his desire to throw one more inning. However, (5th inning) Dylan’s pitch began to decline rapidly and his body began to deteriorate. Kim Yoo-seong, who solved all of them, was put in.”
Regarding Kim Yu-seong, coach Lee said, “I couldn’t control it. As a young player, I was in a situation where I had no choice but to bear the burden in front of many spectators. I think it made me feel burdened by throwing it in an unstable state on the bench.” attributed to
“(Kim Yoo-seong) came out in the middle of the 5th inning, so I had to pull it out for more than 3 innings. LG and the Children’s Day series) were also left, so it was not the timing to replace them hastily.”
The situation could have been different if Dylan had been thrown up to the 4th inning as the bench wanted. Director Lee said, “I also reflected on myself internally. I also heard regret that (the bench) had cut it off strongly. The will of the player himself was very strong. I went up because I wanted to finish up to the 5th inning,” he said. We also talked a lot about what would happen. We also talked about how to approach differently the next time the same situation came,” he said, vowing not to repeat the same scene.
Coach Lee is leading the team by taking over as head coach for the first time this season. Naturally, he has no choice but to go through a lot of trial and error. Still, there is one thing this director never does. It’s just blaming the players.
On the 4th, he turned the arrow to himself, saying, “All the results are a judgment error by the bench. The players are working hard and doing well. The bench just needs to accept the result.” Doosan overturned many people’s expectations before the season and maintains a 50% win rate (13 wins, 1 draw, 13 losses), and is tied for 5th place in the league 크크크벳.
