Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Starter Choi Seung-yong overcame the crisis wisely and laid the foundation for the team’s victory.

He added, “Yang Eui-ji is Yang Eui-ji. Not only did the pitcher lead, but he also hit a decisive home run. I was able to set the mood at the beginning through the 3 points that came through the center line in the first inning.”
