Bears one win away from Korean Series-title
SEOUL (South Korea) - Doosan Bears scored two runs in the first inning and that was enough to win Game 4 of the Korean Series vs. Samsung Lions, 2-1, on Monday-evening (October 28) and take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven final. The Bears are now one win away from the professional Korean Championship and their first title since 2001. Game 5 will be played on Tuesday. When the Bears win the title, they will become the first team to capture the championship after finishing the regular season in fourth place.

The Bears had what would be a decisive first at bat, scoring twice off of Young-soo Bae. Soo-bin Jung reached on a bunt-single, then Hyun-soo Kim walked. A double by Joon-seok Choi then produced the first run, followed by a sacrifice fly by Eui-ji Yang that made it 2-0. Bae was relieved in the second inning and the Lions-bullpen then held the Bears scoreless.

While the pitching of the Bears was solid, the Lions got several opportunities to score. Bears-starter Jae-woo Lee struckout eight batters in five innings and gave up only two hits. In the second inning, the Lions stranded two runners when Lee struckout Ji-young Lee to end the at bat. Lee then saw the Lions load the bases in the fourth inning. But he ended that threat by striking out Seok-min Park to close the inning. Lee then struckout all three batters in the fifth inning.

American Derek Hankins took over the pitching for Lee in the sixth inning. He also held the Lions scoreless, then was relieved by Jae-hun Chung with two outs in the eighth inning.

In the ninth inning, the Lions appeared to erase the lead of the Bears when the team got the bases loaded with one out. Hyung-woo Choi led off with a double and Seok-min Park walked. The two advanced on a grounder, then Han-yi Park was walked intentionally. A run was then scored when rookie Hyeon Jeong hit a sacrifice fly off of Jae-hun Chung. But with runners on second and third base, a grounder by Kab-yong Jin on another reliever, Myung-jun Yun, ended the game and saved the lead.
