We have to fight with the determination that this is the last game.”

A team that must maintain its hopes of advancing to the postseason and a team that is aiming to regain third place will clash at Jamsil Bee. Although it was not solemn, the atmosphere during pre-game training was also tense.먹튀검증
On the 13th, KIA and Doosan met at Jamsil Stadium. Both KIA, which has three games left, and Doosan, who has five more games to play, must win to achieve their goal. Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “We are entering the middle of the 8-game series. “We lost the first two games, but I think it is meaningful that we won the game yesterday (12th) thanks to an explosion in the batting line and changed the atmosphere,” he said. He added, “We have to play each game as if it were our last. “There is no time to think backwards,” he said.
Kim Jae-hwan, who has swelling in his hand, will stand by as a pinch hitter, but he will be the best lineup member. Jeong Soo-bin and Su-haeng Cho were the table setters, and Jose Rojas took the lead in cleanup as the designated hitter. Yang Eui-ji and Yang Seok-hwan take center stage in the 4th and 5th batting order, and Kim In-tae, who has a single long hit, replaces Kim Jae-hwan as the 6th batter and left fielder.
Behind them, the infield trio of Kang Seung-ho, Kim Jae-ho, and Heo Gyeong-min line up to welcome KIA starter Kim Geon-guk. Kwak Bin, who was unable to play in a single game at the Asian Games due to pain in his right rib, is making his comeback. Coach Lee said, “We will have him throw as much as he can,” and added, “There is still slight pain, but considering (Kwak) Bin’s condition, we have set the pitch date for today (the 13th), so I expect him to step forward with a sense of responsibility.” .
KIA coach Kim Jong-guk was a little more determined. Coach Kim said, “I came (to Jamsil) with the mindset that it was the final game of the season,” and added, “We have to play desperately, feeling like we are standing on the edge of a cliff. “The players all know this,” he emphasized. If KIA loses this day’s game, its advancement to the postseason will be thwarted. However, if they win all remaining games, they may face a different situation depending on the results of NC Doosan SSG’s game.
In particular, since the last two games are against NC, it is important to sound victorious in the last match of the season with Doosan.
Although Choi Hyung-woo and Na Seong-beom fell out of the race, KIA also fought back with the best lineup within the available range. Kim Do-young and Ko Jong-wook lined up in the first and second positions, while Kim Sun-bin, Socrates Brito, and Lee Woo-sung were tied up as cleanups. Coach Kim said, “Kim Sun-bin, Socrates, and Lee Woo-sung are hitters who create anticipation when they have a chance to score. He expressed confidence, saying, “The slugging power may be lower (compared to when Choi Hyung-woo and Na Seong-beom were around), but the scoring production is not bad.”
Kim Tae-gun was named as the so-called joker in the 6th batting order, and Byun Woo-hyuk, Kim Ho-ryeong, and Kim Gyu-seong were in the 7th and 8th batting order. It appears to be a batting order that takes into account long hits, mobility, and operational ability.
Coach Kim said, “Kim Geon-guk pitched not bad in Jamsil. Still, he ignited his fighting spirit, saying, “We are ready to put the bullpen into operation quickly.” The Jamsil bee began to heat up.
