Raul Alcantara (31, Doosan Bears), who returned as a ‘career job’, finished pitching the second demonstration game. He scored three runs as the last runner came in.

Alcantara took the mound as a starter in an away game against KT Wiz, a 2023 professional baseball demonstration game held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 20th, and recorded 4 hits, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts and 3 runs in 4 1/3 innings. He prevented the bases loaded crisis he had created during the pitch with one run, but finished the mound with a rather disappointing report card as the runner who left it came in. He recorded a maximum speed of 152 km per hour with a fastball (36 pitches), and threw a slider (14 pitches) and a splitter (15 pitches) evenly.

Alcantara, who won 20 wins at Doosan in 2020 and won the Pitcher Golden Glove, returned to Doosan after playing for the Hanshin Tigers of Nippon Professional Baseball 카지노사이트(NPB) for two years. He did not have to worry about adapting to the KBO league, and his pitch was a variable, but he raised expectations by shooting a maximum speed of 154 km from his first demonstration game.

On the day of the confrontation with KT ace Wes Benjamin, he also showed off his skillful pitching. Alcantara caught Kim Min-hyeok with three strikeouts in the first inning and struck out Anthony Alford with a 147 km/h fastball that was controlled outside and struck out looking, starting with a three-way offense.

The pitching with a sense of stability continued until the third inning. After one out in the second inning, Jang Seong-woo was allowed his first hit, but after catching Hwang Jae-gyun with a two-ball straight hit, he caught Jang Seong-woo, who failed to return to first base, and finished the inning. In the 3rd inning, he also added a three-way offense with two outfield fly balls to the looking strikeout he got from Park Kyung-soo.

Episode 4 was a hump. He gave up a hit to the first batter, Cho Yong-ho, and allowed Kim Min-hyeok to go on base without being fooled by a breaking ball. Alford struck out three pitches, but allowed an additional walk as a fastball went high to Park Byeong-ho again.

Although the bases were loaded with one company, the loss was minimized. Alcantara allowed Jang Seong-Woo to score the first run on a left fielder’s sacrifice fly. However, Hwang Jae-kyun, the follow-up hitter, induced a ground ball hit in front of the shortstop, ending the inning without any additional runs.

But the finish was disappointing. Alcantara also came on the mound in the 5th inning and turned the first batting team to a bum hit. However, they faced a risk of conceding runs by allowing consecutive hits to follow-up batters Park Kyung-soo and Lee Sang-ho. There was also a scene where Lee Sang-ho’s batted ball grazed his arm and made him dizzy.

The hitter that Alcantara faced was Lee Sang-ho. Doosan lowered Alcantara, who had reached the target number of pitches with 67 pitches, from the mound and raised left-handed Lee Byung-hun. Doosan explained, “The number of pitches originally planned was filled and replaced. The ball grazed the elbow, but there was no pain.”

There were no injuries, but there were concessions. Alcantara’s two runners also hit the home run as Byung-Hun Lee gave up a walk to the follow-up batter and Alford hit a home run. Alcantara’s average ERA in demonstration games rose to 3.68.
