“My mistake, I tried to fix it” Ramos’ crucial error leads to two-run blast

It was intense, in a good way and in a bad way. The last one was good, so the conclusion is a happy ending.

Doosan’s Henry Ramos hit the game-winning two-run homer in the top of the ninth inning against Gochuk Kiwoom on Thursday. With the score tied 4-4 and the bases loaded, Ramos lifted a low, 148-kilometer fastball from Kiwoom’s Joo Seung-woo that split the stadium exactly in half. The 130-meter home run cleared the farthest part of the center field fence. Doosan brought in Kim Taek-yeon in the bottom of the ninth to close out the game, extending its winning streak to two games after beating Jamsil Hanwha the day before.

Ramos’s face was not a happy one after hitting the final two runs. He made two errors in right field, including a crucial throwing error in the previous inning. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Ramos failed to catch Song Sung-moon’s grounder, and after scrambling to pick it up, he missed the throw. Only one error was recorded, but it was more of an error because he missed the throw. Ramos’ sloppy defense put runners on first and third with no outs. Kim Yong-gyu followed with an RBI single to tie the game at 4-4. Ramos had earlier fumbled a Lee Joo-hyung single to right in the fifth inning. Ramos couldn’t handle it at once, allowing Kiwoom’s Kim Tae-jin, who was at second base, to cross home without a struggle. Both of Ramos’ errors led to runs.

“I should have started off aggressively,” Ramos said of his failure to catch Song Sung-moon’s ball in the eighth inning. But the 안전놀이터 game-winning home run made up for it, literally. “I think the ninth-inning home run was more meaningful because my error tied the game,” Ramos said. Even though he was batting right after the error, he tried to stay as positive as possible, which is why he was able to hit the home run. “I had a big mentality that I had to take care of what I did,” Ramos said.

Ramos’ eighth homer of the season was his first away from home this year. Prior to that, he had hit seven home runs in Jamsil. “I realized a couple days ago that I hadn’t hit a home run outside of Jamsil,” Ramos said. “I don’t know how to explain it,” Ramos said, adding, “I hit my first home run away from home, so I hope I can hit more home runs away from home in the future.”

Ramos’ recent hitting hasn’t been as good as it was last month. After posting an OPS of 1.081 in the month of May, Ramos has cooled off to 0.847 in June. “I don’t feel as comfortable at the plate as I did last month,” Ramos said, “and I’m sure other players will tell you the 파워볼실시간 same thing, but it’s a lot of traveling and a lot of games. Your body is getting tired, and I don’t think there’s a hitter who can say that this is the best time to be hitting.” Still, “the results are coming, the team is winning a lot,” he said, “so I’m going to keep working hard every day to prepare and try to bring good results.”

Alcantara started for Doosan and held the opposing bats to three runs over six innings. It was his fourth Quality Start (QS) in four games, dating back to his comeback last month. “It feels good to be able to help the team win a little bit,” Alcantara said. “Before the game, we had a plan with Yang-ji and the power analysis team to attack the strike zone aggressively. There were a lot of lefties in the opposing lineup, but we didn’t think about that, we just made a plan for each individual and faced them, and I’m glad it worked out.”
