‘Choi Won-jun Allowed 1 Run in 6⅔ Innings’ Doosan Defeated NC 7-3… Castano’s First Loss

Professional baseball’s Doosan Bears handed NC Dinos ace Daniel Castano their first loss in the KBO League.

Doosan defeated NC 7-3 in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League home game held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 25th.

Castano, who had 3 wins in 5 games (no losses) and an ERA of 1.67 until the previous day, collapsed after being thoroughly targeted by the Doosan batting lineup on this day.

Castano gave up 7 hits (1 home run), 2 walks, and 6 runs (6 earned) in 5 innings. 바카라사이트

This was the first time that Castano failed to achieve a quality start (more than 6 innings as a starter and no more than 3 earned runs).

On the other hand, Doosan sidearm starter Wonjun Choi pitched his best pitch of the season, allowing 2 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, and 1 run (1 earned) in 6⅔ innings.

Castano allowed five straight on bases in the first inning, losing four runs.

With one out in the bottom of the first inning, Doosan filled all bases with Kim Jae-hwan’s pitch after Heo Gyeong-min’s heavy hit and Kang Seung-ho’s double.

And Seok-Hwan Yang hit a double to left field that went past the third baseman, bringing in two runners.

The next batter, Henry Ramos, also delivered a timely hit with two RBIs and a left-field hit.

In the bottom of the third inning, Ramos pulled Castano’s second pitch changeup and hit a two-run shot to the left.

Ramos, who continued to struggle early this season and hit his first home run on the 23rd, hit his second homer in two days.

Meanwhile, Choi Won-jun tied up the NC batting line by blocking three innings in the 1st, 3rd, and 5th innings.

However, it was unfortunate that after 2 outs in the 7th inning, Oh Young-soo hit the ball and Do Tae-hoon hit a double to right-center, giving up a run.

No additional runs were conceded as Kim Myung-shin, who came on as a relief pitcher, prevented the successor runner from scoring.

In the bullpen fight that followed, Doosan ran away by one point and NC chased down two points.
