There were two home runs, but Raul Alcantara (30, Doosan Bears) achieved a quality start plus (3 earned runs over 7 innings starting) as always, but failed to achieve 11 wins due to bullpen fire.

Alcantara started in the 2023 KBO League regular season match against the Samsung Lions held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 9th and recorded 4 hits (2 home runs) in 7 innings, no walks, 3 strikeouts and 2 runs. He went down the mound in the 8th inning with a victory requirement with a 3-2 lead, taking a fastball of 155 km / h. However, this requirement disappeared with Kim Myung-shin’s run in the 8th inning.

Alcantara, who won 20 wins at Doosan in 2020 and won the pitcher Golden Glove, returned to Doosan after playing for two years with the Hanshin Tigers of the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) and is again guarding the mound as an ace. He continued his good pitching this season with an ERA of 2.46 with 10 wins and 5 losses until the game on this day.

In particular, he showed a sense of stability in pursuing the least runs in the most innings in each game. In 20 games before the game that day, quality starts (6 innings or more and 3 earned runs or less) reached 15 times (75%), and Quality Start Plus also left 6 times. With the good pitching that day, the quality start rate for the season also increased to 76.2%.먹튀검증

However, the recent pace has not been good. He played well in every game until the 21st of last month, but on the 28th of the same month, against the LG Twins, he gave up 6 runs in 5 2/3 innings and became a factor in the team losing 3 consecutive times. Then, on the 3rd of this month, against the Hanwha Eagles, he added a quality start with 3 runs in 6 innings, but was blocked by opposing pitcher Felix Pena and lost in a row.

On this day, a sense of calm was restored. The perfect march continued until the 2nd in the 4th inning. None of the Samsung hitters could step on first base. Only in the 4th inning, Koo Ja-wook, the first in batting average (0.333), attacked him and stopped the perfect streak with a right-handed hit, but failed to score.

Alcantara, which was like an iron wall, was shaken from the 5th inning. The Doosan lineup scored a run first with Jose Rojas’ solo home run at the end of the fourth inning, and this became the start of the home run seesaw game. Samsung, which had lost a run to Doosan, immediately responded with a home run in the top of the 5th inning. Jose Pirella hit a 154 km/h fastball thrown in the middle by Alcantara and connected it with a large home run that went over the left fence to tie the game.

The cannon exploded again. Doosan regained the lead with Kim Jae-hwan’s solo shot, but Samsung immediately counterattacked. Koo Ja-wook, who broke Perfect, did it again. At the end of the 5th inning, when Alcantara threw a splitter into the zone with a 1-ball, 1-strike situation, Ja-wook Koo hit it through and connected it with a mid-wall solo shot over the outfield fence in the middle of Jamsil to tie the game.

Still, except for two home runs, there was no flaw. Alcantara prevented additional runs by catching the final out count in the 6th inning with a floating ball to Kang Min-ho. Then, in the 7th inning, he threw only 6 pitches and closed the inning with a three-way exit.

In the meantime, the other line also presented a victory requirement. At the end of the 6th inning, when Jeong Soo-bin’s hit, Kim Jae-ho’s sacrifice bunt, and Lohas’s intentional ball gave Doosan a chance to score, Yang Seok-hwan hit a timely hit and gave them a one-point lead. has been equipped

However, the bullpen failed to keep this one point. Doosan tried to evolve by raising right hand Kim Myung-shin in the 8th inning, but as Kim Seong-yoon’s timely hit tied the score, Alcantara’s victory requirement disappeared.

The game is currently 3-3 at the beginning of the 8th inning, and Samsung continues to have opportunities for 1st and 2nd base with 2 companies.
