Professional Baseball Observatory 1st place LG with ’emergency light’ turned on, Doosan and 3 consecutive weeks in the home
LG, who lost all 3 consecutive weekend games, allowed 4.5 games to chase 2nd place kt.
Doosan, which gave away 5th place to KIA, also challenged to leap again against LG, a’Jamsil rival’
The LG Twins, who took first place in the league on June 27,
have never come down from the top of the leaderboard in their 37th game, and are running toward their first regular league championship in 29 years and the Korean Series championship.
LG, which had prepared for a solo run by widening the gap with second place to eight games, 카지노사이트원
gave up all three consecutive visits to NC Dinos last weekend, and the ‘red light’ came on.
The gap between the two teams narrowed to 4.5 games as the 2nd place kt wiz, who accumulated victories at an alarming speed, won 3 consecutive victories in Busan.
LG, which has 36 games left until the end of the regular season, is still the most likely team to rank first in the regular league, but depending on the results of this week, the competition for the lead at the end of the season may fall into the fog.
From the 29th to the 31st, LG will play the last 3 games of August against the ‘Jamsil rival’ Doosan Bears.
LG won 8 wins and 2 losses against Doosan, gaining an absolute advantage.
If you win even one of the three consecutive matches, you can confirm the opponent’s superiority for the second consecutive year following last season (10 wins, 6 losses).
For LG, it is urgent to get away from the shock wave of the 3-game series in Changwon last weekend with NC.
On the 25th, LG, who lost 1-14 due to the collapse of starter Choi Won-tae, suffered a come-from-behind defeat in the 9th inning amidst the misfortune of being hit by the referee’s feet on the 26th.
On the 27th, starting pitcher Lim Chan-gyu was ejected from the first inning for hitting the opposing batsman in the head.
According to the starting rotation, LG will face Doosan with Adam Plutko and Casey Kelly’one-two punch’.
Doosan is also in a position where it has nowhere to back down.
Doosan started to consolidate 5th place by winning all 3 consecutive matches against Kiwoom Heroes during the week, but fell to 6th place after losing 1 win and 2 losses in 3 consecutive matches against SSG Landers on the weekend.
The 3rd starters, including Raul Alcantara, Brandon Waddell, and Kwak Bin, are going smoothly, but the homework is for the players who started as the 4th and 5th starters to be notified of going to the 2nd team one after another to fill the positions.
During the week in Gwangju, two rising teams on a winning streak spur their steps toward fall baseball.
The KIA Tigers, who recaptured the 5th place with 4 consecutive wins, invites NC, who is on a 3-game winning streak, into the home.
The gap between the two teams is two games, so the results of this three-game series are expected to determine the fate of the teams hovering at the threshold of fall baseball.
Having risen from 10th place at the beginning of the season to 2nd place at a terrifying pace, kt will have three consecutive matches during the week against the Samsung Lions.
KT, who ranked first in the team’s ERA in the second half (3.15) and Samsung,
who ranked first in team batting average (0.304) in the second half,
will test which one is stronger between ‘spear and shield’.
The 7th place Lotte Giants, who lost 7 consecutive losses, and the 9th place Hanwha Eagles,
who are struggling with 6 consecutive losses, will meet in Daejeon during the week.
One of the two teams is able to get out of the quagmire, while the other sinks deeper into the swamp.
In Incheon on weekdays
3rd place SSG Landers invites 10th place Kiwoom Heroes to their home to see another leap forward to 2nd place.
On the weekend, the two teams competing for the lead will play a three-game series against the bottom-ranked team side by side.
LG faces Hanwha in Jamsil, and kt faces Kiwoom in Gocheok.
Afterwards, the two teams will face off in three consecutive matches (September 5-7)
next week to determine the fate of the 2023 regular season 1st place.
KIA-SSG in Incheon, NC-Samsung in Daegu, and Doosan-Lotte in Busan
will play three consecutive weekend matches.
