‘It’s embarrassing, get away from me!’

Doosan’s Yang Ji-won couldn’t contain his apologetic laughter after being tagged out by the opposing catcher.

Doosan completed the midweek series sweep with an 8-6 win over Kiwoom on Thursday at Gocheok Sky Dome.

Doosan was led by foreign-born Rojas’ two-run cycling hit and a 3-for-5 performance from Yang, who made his first appearance in the starting lineup in 19 days.

After taking a two-run lead in the first inning on Rojas’ leadoff double, Doosan gave up two runs in the bottom of the first inning to Kiwoom on defense to tie the game.

In the bottom of the second inning, leadoff hitter Joo Sung-won singled and Song Sung-moon and Kim Hye-sung walked to load the bases, but Dawson’s sacrifice fly made it 4-2, and Doosan switched pitchers from Kim Dong-joo to Choi Won-joon.

Doosan kept the momentum going in the third inning with a solo shot by Kim Jae-ho. A Rojas walk and a single by Yang put runners on first and third, and Yang’s sacrifice fly tied the game at 4-4.

The first baseman advanced to second on Yang’s sacrifice fly, putting two runners in scoring position.

The next batter was Kang Seung-ho, who had singled in his first at-bat. Doosan had a chance to tie the game at 5-5 with a single.

With runners on 1B and 1S, Yang made a skip move toward the third base, which prompted Kim Xiang to throw the ball.

Unexpectedly, Yang Ji slipped and fell backwards as he tried to stop, and Kim Xiang’s quick throw to second base caught him off guard.

Once for turning, once for sliding.

He could have tied the game and taken the lead. Feeling terrible about the missed opportunity, Yang made his way to the dugout in a dark mood and made eye contact with his teammates.메이저놀이터

It was literally hilarious. The out was unfortunate, but the unintentional body gag was hilarious, and Yang Ji covered his face with his helmet, smiled embarrassedly, and prepared for his next at-bat with encouragement from his teammates.
