The Doosan Bears swept the second game of a doubleheader behind Brandon Waddell.
Doosan defeated the Samsung Lions 4-0 in the second game of a doubleheader at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, on Monday.
After being shut out by Samsung’s foreign pitcher David Buchanan (eight innings, seven hits, one run) in game one, Doosan went with foreign starter Brandon in game two.
Brandon got himself into trouble in the first through fourth innings by giving up a single and a walk, but after getting out of the jam, he retired the Samsung batters with his command.
Brandon finished the game with seven innings of two-hit ball, four walks and seven strikeouts to earn his eighth win of the season (3-0). He has won his last three starts in a row.
Following Brandon, Hong Gun-hee (one hitless inning) and Chung Chul-won (one hitless inning) also pitched scoreless innings to complete a team shutout for Doosan.
The Doosan bats took the lead in the bottom of the third inning when Kang Seung-ho singled to right and Kim Jae-ho walked to put runners on first and third with Yang Seok-hwan hitting a double to left-center field.
With runners on first and second after a walk to Kim Jae-hwan, Yang scored on an RBI double down the third-base line.
In the eighth inning, with runners on first and third, Samsung catcher Lee Byung-hun dropped a fastball behind Kim Seo-joon, allowing Doosan to add a run.
Samsung’s Choi Ha-neul, making his first start in 112 days since May 20 against the NC Dinos, took the loss (2-2) after giving up three runs on five hits in 4 1/3 innings.
After pounding out 11 hits in the first game of the doubleheader, the Samsung bats managed just two hits in the second game.
Doosan had eight hits in both the first and second games. 스포츠토토
