SONGPA-GU, SEOUL (South Korea) - Doosan Bears won 7-3 against SK Wyverns on Monday (November 5) in Game 2 of the best-of-seven Korean Series to even the Championship Final, 1-1.

Doosan Bears opened the score with one out in the bottom of the third inning off of starting pitcher Seung-Won Moon. With runners on first and third base, a grounder by Soo-Bin Jung ended in a force play on second base. A double play could not be completed as Jung reached first base in time and his grounder enabled runner Jae-Il Oh to score the first run from third base.

Bears lifted the lead to 4-0 in the fourth at bat. Jae-Hwan Kim led off with a double and scored on a single by Eui-Ji Yang. Hereafter, Joo-Hwan Choi followed with a 2-run homerun.

In the top of the fifth, Wyverns got one run back on a sacrifice fly by Kang-Min Kim. In the seventh, the team narrowed the deficit to 4-3 by scoring two more runs. With two outs and a runner on first base, a grounder by Sung-Hyun Kim ended in a throwing error, which led to runners on second and third base. Both scored when Kang-Min Kim delivered a single. When starter Seth Frankoff walked the next batter, Chi-Guk Park took over the pitching and closed with a strikeout.

The Bears then took more distance in the eighth inning. With runners on first and third base, a run was scored on another single by Eui-Ji Yang. The next run was added on a single Joo-Hwan Choi, who went on to score himself on a grounder by pinch-hitter Jin-Ho Jung to make it a 7-3 score.
