The match between Doosan Bears and LG Twins was canceled due to rain. However, both teams do not change the starting pitcher.
Doosan and LG were scheduled to have a confrontation between the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO league teams in the 11th round of the ‘Jamsil Rivals’ at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 29th. However, all five games were canceled after rain poured down across the country that day.
This match was very important for both teams. There is also the symbolism of the ‘Jamsil rival’, but this is because the atmosphere between the two teams has not been very good recently. Doosan won the first game in a three-game series against SSG Landers last weekend, but lost two games in a row and recorded a losing series, falling to 6th place.
LG was the same. LG, which is running toward winning the regular season, suffered the worst situation by giving up all three matches against the NC Dinos in Changwon. As a result, LG was placed in a situation where it could never be relieved as the gap with second place KT Wiz narrowed to 4.5 games. However, in the aftermath of the rain that poured all day, I was able to breathe a sigh.
Doosan and LG pitched Brandon Waddell and Lee Jeong-yong as starting pitchers, respectively, on the same day, and they will play on the 30th. Doosan was scheduled to receive a starting opportunity for Lee Won-jae on the 30th after Brandon’s departure on the 29th, but as the game was canceled due to rain, they decided to postpone Won-jae Lee’s start and put Brandon in.
Like last year, Brandon, who wore Doosan’s uniform as a substitute foreign player this year, was not very good against LG with an average ERA of 15.75 and 1 loss in 1 game. He is playing the role of a ‘filial son’.안전놀이터
LG also put forward Lee Jeong-yong without any change in selection. Lee Jeong-yong pitched 6 scoreless innings against the Kiwoom Heroes on the 2nd, and again recorded 6 scoreless innings against the KIA Tigers on the 9th. He is on a two-game winning streak.
Meanwhile, it was expected to rain in the metropolitan area on the 30th, but as the weather situation changed, the Korea Meteorological Administration predicted that it would not rain on the 30th.
