Bears Win Opener Over Lions in KBO Championship

The Doosan Bears remain hot, winning their opener against the Samsung Lions in the Korean championship series 7-2.  The Lions may have been a bit cold since they have not played since October three.  The Bears have already won two series in their approach to this final series against the Lions. 

Hyun-Soo Kim and Si-Seon Son slammed solo shots and Won-Seok Lee drove in two runs with a triple to lead the offense.  The Lions got on the board first with a solo homerun from Seok-Min Park in the first inning to give the Lions an early 1-0 lead.

Kyung-Eun Noh settled down after giving up the solo shot to Park, allowing the Lions only three singles through the sixth inning. 

Game two will see the Dutchman Rick Vandenhurk go for the Lions against Dustin Nippert for the Bears.
