‘End of the fence’ disallows home run → umpire → out of bounds…a captain’s day in the sun

‘Captain’ Heo Kyung-min had a bizarre day that decided the team’s fifth place finish in the regular season.

Doosan lost to the SSG Landers 2 to 3 at Jamsil Stadium on Saturday, securing fifth place in the regular season.

Heo Kyung-min started as the eighth batter and third baseman. He retired the first batter of the third inning on an infield single.

Doosan had trouble hitting Elias on this day, and it was Heo who quenched their thirst. Trailing 0-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning, Park Jun-young walked and Heo Kyung-min hit a two-run double to the top of the left-center field fence.

It was a big hit that could have been a home run, but it was just short of clearing the deepest left-center field in Jamsil, the largest stadium in Korea.

Doosan loaded the bases with two outs, but Elias threw out Heo Kyung-min at the plate to end the threat.

In the top of the seventh inning, bad luck struck. Kim Myung-shin worked out of a jam with two outs, but gave up a single to Park Sung-ho and a walk to Han Yoo-seom. The Doosan bench switched to Hong Gun-hee on the mound. She was determined to shut them down.토토사이트

Heredia hit a deep grounder to third base. However, the ball went out of bounds and hit Heo Kyung-min in the face. Heo scrambled to cover his face, and as the ball went sideways, Park Sung-eun scored to make it 3-1. The umpire then stopped the game, and Heo was helped off the field.

Doosan said, “Heo Kyung-min was hit in the right temple by a pitch and is being treated with icing. We will decide whether to examine him after monitoring his condition.”

Doosan had one last chance in the bottom of the ninth, when Kim In-tae hit a solo shot and two batters later, SSG first baseman Oh Tae-gon missed Yang Ji-hye’s shot. However, the final batter, Kang Seung-ho, was hit by a pitch to end the inning. As a result, the one run conceded on an irregular boundary became the final run for the fifth-place finishers.
