I challenged the 15th record in the KBO… Braking in 7⅓ innings, but still proved qualified as the 1st starter

Again, the first starter is different. Doosan Bears ace Raul Alcantara (31) blocked the KT Wiz lineup with a perfect pitch.

Alcantara started in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ kt match held at Suwon kt Wiz Park on the 20th.

Alcantara’s appearance on this day was important. Doosan had been on a two-game losing streak since the match against Gocheok Kiwoom Heroes on the 18th. In addition, from the Gocheok Kiwoom game on the 17th, the starting pitcher left the mound without completing the 5th inning three times in a row, and there was a concern about overloading the bullpen.

Alcantara had to throw long innings and was responsible for many innings, and at the same time went to the mound with the special mission of ending the team’s losing streak.

Before the match, Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Today (the 20th) is an important game. Even though it’s a weekend game, the first starter comes out. We have to break the losing streak that we had with Kiwoom from the last game to yesterday. I have to do it,” he said, expressing his anticipation for the Alcantara helmet

At the end of the first inning, Alcantara was shaken for a while. He gave up two walks and became 1st and 2nd base with 2 outs, but the follow-up hitter Jang Seong-woo was treated as a floating ball in right field and did not concede.

After that, a perfect pitch followed. There really was no flaws. From the bottom of the 2nd to the bottom of the 6th inning, not a single batter was let out except for a defensive error by shortstop Park Gye-beom. Although he had only three strikeouts, he used various pitches such as sliders, forkballs, and curveballs to cook the opponent’s batting line. Alcantara’s hot pitching made it hard for kt hitters to catch on.스포츠토토

Alcantara took the mound in the bottom of the 7th inning. He continued his strong pitching against key hitters including Park Byeong-ho. Even at the end of the 8th inning, he went up to the mound and turned lead batter Kim Min-hyuk with a ground ball to second baseman, but Lee Ho-yeon hit a heavy hit and ended the 15th no-hit, no-run challenge in KBO League history.

The flow was broken with a no-hit, no-run, but after that, the two batters were blocked and the inning ended without a run. Doosan fans gave Alcantara a standing ovation as he headed to the dugout after the inning.

He failed to challenge the record, but Alcantara clearly proved why he was the team’s first starter. The final score was 8 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts and no runs, laying the foundation for the team’s 6-0 victory.
