Doosan Bears, 5th in professional baseball, will meet kt in 3rd place and NC in 4th place in this week’s Jamsil home game 6 in turn, and will be on the test stage to advance to fall baseball.
This week’s professional baseball will be held during the week (15-17) kt-Doosan (Jamsil), Hanwha-NC (Changwon), LG-Samsung (Daegu), Kiwoom-KIA (Gwangju), SSG-Lotte (Busan).
NC-Doosan (Jamsil), KIA-Samsung (Daegu), kt-Hanwha (Daejeon), LG-SSG (Incheon), and Lotte-Kiwoom (Gocheok) clash in the weekend (18th-20th) three-game series.
It is an opportunity for Doosan to take another leap forward this week, and a crisis that could widen the gap with the ranking competitor.
From July 1st to 25th, Doosan, who had an 11-game winning streak, the longest in club history, is struggling with 5 wins and 11 losses.
The ranking, which had risen to 3rd, also went down to 5th.
As of the 14th, Doosan was pushed by 3 games to 3rd place kt and 1 game to 4th place NC.
Doosan’s best catcher Yang Eui-ji is on the injured list due to flank pain, and the starting lineup is having a hard time recently due to group hunting.
If you accumulate a multiplier in a head-to-head confrontation with kt and NC, a ‘reversal’ is also possible. On the other hand, if the recent sluggishness continues, the fifth place may be at stake.
Doosan had a tight fight with kt this season with 5 wins, 6 losses and 1 draw, and NC with 5 wins and 5 losses.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said throughout this season, “The real match comes in the second half.” This 6-game match in Jamsil, meeting with the ranking rivals, could be the ‘second half match’ predicted by coach Lee.
LG and SSG will gauge the direction of the Korean series this season in three consecutive weekend matches. (yunhap news)토토사이트
■ 3 consecutive weekend expeditions with LG and SSG… Are you a leading soloist? A return to competition?
The LG Twins built a solo system in the 2023 Korean Professional Baseball KBO League by running for five consecutive wins.
If SSG Landers, who are 2nd place away from LG by 6 games, loses their 3rd home game against LG at SSG Landers Field in Incheon this weekend (18th to 20th), the competition for first place can virtually end.
SSG, which held first place from the opening game to the end of the season last year and won the ‘Wire-to-Wire Regular Season’ and won the Korean Series, is maintaining a high win rate of 0.573 (55 wins, 41 losses, 1 tie) as of the 14th this year. .
However, it is an unsatisfactory result for SSG, which is aiming for a combined championship for two consecutive years.
Moreover, SSG’s heart is more urgent as LG is producing an amazing result of 61 wins, 35 losses and 2 draws (0.635 win rate).
SSG lost 3 wins and 6 losses this season against LG this season.
SSG, which was weak against top teams such as LG, kt wiz (4 wins, 8 losses), and NC Dinos (3 wins, 7 losses) this season, is also growing wary that it can no longer be pushed back by a ‘potential postseason head-to-head team’.
SSG defeated LG 6-4 in the first game of the second half (July 21st). Games on 22 and 23 July were canceled due to rain.
SSG ace Kim Gwang-hyeon, who won the starting match against LG on July 21st, will also start once in three consecutive matches this weekend.
If LG rejects SSG’s challenge, it can speed up toward winning the regular season.
