Yep, I went to the game. Decent crowd on the Doosan side, not so many for SK.

Randel pitched pretty well. 6 innings, 3Ks, 3 walks and a home run to Lee Jae-won in the fourth, just over the left field wall.

Oh Jae-won collected an error in the top of the sixth, bobbling a ground ball over his head from Lee Jae-won.

Doosan's bats were pretty quiet until the 6th. Then Kim Hyeon-su hit a 2RBI triple off right centre with one out and Kim Dong-ju brought him home with a sac fly to centre.

There's nothing like a come from behind rally to get the crowd going. It made my night, as they were being outplayed until that point.

Doosan added three more in the 8th. With runners at the corners and two outs Jeong Won-seok stole second and Choi Seung-hwan hit a 2 RBI single before Kim Jae-ho picked up an RBI double along the right field baseline.

Randel got the win and Chae Pyong-yong the loss.
