We are confident and will do our best sportstotozone to fight the top teams.” Doosan has struggled against LG this season with a 2-5 record. They went 1-2 in the first three games in April and were swept 1-11 on May 7. They went 1-2 in the three-game series in June. Doosan is also 2-6 against the second-place SSG Landers.
