KBO League on the 30th Daejeon Gwangju Jamsil Suwon 4 Games Canceled Due to Rain

The game between Lotte Giants and Hanwha Eagles, scheduled to be held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 30th

was the first to be cancelled.

While both teams are on a long losing streak

Lotte is in 7th place with 50 wins and 58 losses with 7 consecutive losses, and Hanwha is in 9th place with 42 wins, 6 draws and 59 losses with 6 straight losses.

On this day, quite a bit of rain poured down in the Daejeon area from the morning.

The rain weakened for a while at noon, but heavy rain again drenched Eagles Park after 1 p.m.

The home team, Hanwha, installed a large tarpaulin in the infield even before the match was canceled due to rain the previous day and prepared for worsening ground conditions.

However, the game became impossible to play normally

with puddles forming in the first and third base dugouts and the outfield warning track, and it was eventually decided to cancel at 4:50 p.m.

Lotte and Hanwha left the stadium without being able to conduct outdoor training as the game was canceled early the previous day due to rain.

When the rain briefly weakened, all the players did was catch balls and stretch in the outfield to warm up. 먹튀검증

As the game was not played for two consecutive days due to the influence of the late summer rainy season

it was inevitable that it would be difficult to maintain a sense of the game.

Lotte postponed its 7-game losing streak and Hanwha’s attempt to escape its 6-game losing streak until the 31st.

On the 31st, Lotte changed its starting pitcher from Charlie Barnes to Aaron Wilkerson, and Hanwha’s Taeyang Lee prepares to pitch again.

The game between NC Dinos and KIA Tigers at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field was also canceled for the second day in a row.

On this day, NC changed its starter to Shin Min-hyuk, and KIA changed its starter from Kim Geon-guk to Thomas Panoni the day before.

With two consecutive days off, NC’s ace Eric Fedi will face Panoni on the 31st.

It is an important matchup as they are two teams on the rise and are tied in the rankings.

NC, ranked 4th, is on a 3-game winning streak with 55 wins, 2 draws, and 49 losses, while KIA

which swept Hanwha in last weekend’s series and has won 4 games in a row, has 52 wins, 2 draws, and 50 losses.

The gap between the two teams is 2 games.

The ‘Jamsil Derby’ between Doosan Bears and LG Twins

which was scheduled to be played at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, also failed to take place for two days.

They were scheduled to start on the 29th

but Doosan’s Brandon Waddell and LG’s Lee Jeong-yong, who had a day off due to rain, ended up being pushed back.

Due to rain cancellation, Doosan Kwak Bin and LG Kelly will face off as starters on the 31st.

Kwak Bin achieved his first 10 wins in his debut by pitching 8 scoreless innings against Jamsil SSG on the 25th.

Kelly, who had some ups and downs this season

also became the winning pitcher in the Jamsil Lotte game on the 24th with 6 scoreless innings, giving up his first scoreless game in 9 games.

Lim Chan-gyu, Choi Won-tae, and Kim Yun-sik are scheduled to take the mound one after the other against Hanwha this weekend.

With foreign pitcher Adam Plutko missing

coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “From now on, I think Yunsik will be the ‘key’ in the position that Plutko is missing.

Ultimately, it will depend on how much Yunsik plays his role as a starter.

“It depends on whether we go a little more comfortably, or if we go through things in a difficult way by quickly deploying the bullpen like we did at the beginning of the season,” he said.

The game between Samsung Lions and KT Wiz scheduled at Suwon KT Wiz Park was also canceled for two consecutive days.

Second-place KT recorded 62 wins, 2 draws, and 47 losses with 3 consecutive wins

narrowing the game gap with leader LG to 4.5 games. 

Samsung, which rose to 8th place, has 48 wins, 1 draw, and 61 losses, and is closely chasing Lotte, which is in 7th place.

Samsung’s Choi Chae-heung, who was scheduled to start for two days in a row, and KT’s Kim Min and Ko Young-pyo

who were scheduled to start on the 29th and 30th, respectively, were eventually postponed.

On the 31st, a foreign match between Taylor Widener and Wes Benjamin will take place.

Meanwhile, the game between the two teams has a reserve date scheduled, so the game canceled today will be played on October 6th.

And the match between the lowest ranked Kiwoom Heroes and the third ranked SSG Landers

held at Incheon SSG Landers Field

was the only match that took place despite the rain that day.
