It is not easy for the Doosan Bears to escape their losing streak. Even Brandon Waddell, whom he trusted, collapsed without being able to stop the KT Wiz lineup.토토사이트

Brandon started the home game against KT in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 17th and collapsed with 8 hits (1 home run) and 7 runs in 4 innings.

On this day, Brandon’s shoulders were heavy. It was because Doosan was in a 4-game losing streak. If Doosan lost to KT again, it would collapse to 50% and in the worst case, slip to 7th place. Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop had no choice but to rely on the experience of Brandon, who became the winning pitcher with 7 scoreless innings against KT on the 5th.

However, Lee’s expectations were dashed from the start.

Brandon, who gave up a hit to lead hitter Kim Min-hyeok in the first inning, caught a fly ball in the outfield, but gave up a walk to Anthony Alford and was driven to 1st and 2nd base with 1 out. Following this, he allowed a timely hit to Kim Sang-soo from second out and second base, allowing 4 runs only in the first inning.

Brandon seemed to find stability after blocking the second inning with a triple-trial. The Doosan lineup also scored 3 runs in the 2nd inning and followed closely with a score of 3-4. But Brandon faltered again in the third. He was hit by lead batter Al Ford, then hit by a double by Seong-Woo Jang, conceding an extra run. It was even more disappointing when both of them got hits from advantageous ball counts.

Brandon, who handled the 4th inning cleanly with 3 batters, got on the mound in the 5th as well. However, he gave up the 6th run after being hit in a row by Bae Jeong-dae and Alford. In the end, the Doosan bench, which was not good enough, lowered Brandon from second base and put Choi Won-joon.

It was a replacement for an additional run, but Choi Won-jun could not put out the fire either. On this day, Seong-Woo Jang, who was proud of his hitting feeling, got a hit, and Alford, the second base runner, stepped home. Brandon’s earned run average was 7.

He climbed the mound with the mission of a stopper for consecutive losses, but was driven to the brink of defeat with his worst pitching, tying the season for the least innings and most earned runs. Doosan is behind KT by 4-7 as of the 6th inning.
