The Lotte Giants and LG Twins match scheduled at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul was the first to be canceled at 4:15 p.m. Canceled two days in a row following the previous day. Lotte Aaron Wilkerson and LG Lee Jeong-yong, who were scheduled to start on the 22nd, were announced as starters on the 23rd, but their appearances were delayed due to rain that lasted for two days.
On the 24th, there will be a face-to-face match between Lotte Charlie Barnes and LG Casey Kelly.
Barnes’ performance against LG this season was not good. He appeared in 3 games and scored 4 runs or more in 5 innings or less in all of them. With 2 losses without a win, an ERA of 9.26.
It is also the same that Kelly has not won against Lotte. But Kelly threw well and was not helped by his teammates. Against Lotte on April 13, he gave up 8 runs in 5⅓ innings, with 4 non-earned runs. On May 31, he gave up 3 runs in 6 innings, and on June 23, he gave up 1 run in 8 innings (non-earned run), but he did not have a chance to win.
The match between NC Dinos and SSG Landers, which was scheduled to be held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon, was canceled for two days in a row due to ground conditions. Due to the cancellation of the game on the 22nd, NC Choi Seong-young and SSG Moon Seung-won, who had prepared to start on the 23rd, also postponed their appearances.
On the 24th, NC will present Jaehak Lee, and SSG will present Kirk McCarty.
Lee Jae-hak will start for the first time in two months. It is a return mound after breaking away from the frontline on June 22 against Changwon LG after being hit by a hitter and suffering a fracture of the metatarsal bone in his left foot. Lee Jae-hak, who pitched in 6 games this season, pitched once against SSG, pitching 7 innings with 9K scoreless and winning.
McCarty pitched in three games against NC this year, recording two losses without a win and an ERA of 2.25. McCarty recorded quality starts in all 4 games in August, but despite this, he did not receive support from the other line, and there is no victory in 5 games in a row, including the return match after inflammation of his left hand on July 26.
KIA Tigers and KT Wiz also failed to escape the rain. KIA and KT, which were scheduled to be held at Suwon KT Wiz Park, have been canceled due to rain in Gyeonggi Province. For the two teams that played the previous day, Thomas Panoni and Koh Young-pyo, who were scheduled to start on the 23rd, will take a day off and prepare for the start on the 24th.
KIA, who lost 2 matches in a row after losing 4-8 the previous day, aims to escape the losing streak with Panoni at the fore. Panoni, who was recruited as a replacement for Shawn Anderson, pitched in 6 games and pitched 34⅔ innings, recording an ERA of 2.60 with a record of 2 wins and 1 loss. KT hitters meet for the first time this time.
KT challenges the 11th consecutive winning series. Koh Young-pyo is making a good pitch with 11 consecutive quality starts. However, this season, he met KIA twice and became a losing pitcher both times. On May 30, he went down to 3 runs in 2 innings (2 earned runs) due to back pain, and on July 8, he gave up 3 runs in 7 innings and was not helped by the other line, so he became a losing pitcher.
The match between the Samsung Lions and Hanwha Eagles at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park seemed to be played normally as the rain forecast was pushed back, but the cancellation was announced just before the start.
On this day, Samsung’s Baek Jeong-hyeon and Hanhwa’s Han Seung-joo were scheduled to pitch as starting pitchers. On the 17th, the previous pitching, against Daegu LG, Baek Jung-hyun pitched well with 6⅔ innings and 1 run, holding the lead LG and becoming the winning pitcher. Han Seung-joo moved to the bullpen after the game against Lotte in Daejeon on July 5, and took the opportunity to start again.
Prior to this game, Hanwha canceled the first-team entry of infielder Ha Joo-seok, who committed a clutch error in a situation where the game could have ended with two outs in the top of the ninth the previous day. Ha Joo-seok, who joined the first team after finishing the drunk driving discipline, lost the team’s victory by making a decisive mistake in a situation where he was not helping the other line with a batting average of 0.114 in 25 games. Hanwha, who dropped Ha Joo-seok, registered outfielder Kwon Kwang-min.
Meanwhile, a match between Doosan Bears and Kiwoom Heroes took place at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, which is not affected by rain. The previous day, while Doosan won 6-1, Doosan put Brandon Waddell and Kiwoom Jang Jae-young as starting pitchers on this day.
