Gwangju, where the tarpaulin was lifted and then covered again…LG-KIA match canceled due to strong rain that was not in the forecast
The decision was made to cancel the last three consecutive games between LG and KIA, which were scheduled to be held at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 10th, due to rain. This is KIA’s 17th cancellation and LG’s 12th cancellation.
LG’s Lee Ji-gang and KIA’s Yoon Young-chul were expected to start, but they failed to face off. In the first game on the 8th, LG led 8-0 until the 2nd inning, but a no-game was declared due to sudden heavy rain, and on the 9th, it was held despite the approach of Typhoon “Kanun,” and LG won 6-2.
Gwangju began to rain as it came under the influence of the typhoon from the night before. The rain continued until morning after dawn, and it did not stop after lunch, but the amount of rain gradually decreased and gradually stopped around 1 p.m. Since then, the rain has fallen slightly and stopped, and the rain has stopped after 2 p.m. Even if you do, you can’t see it for a second.
Gwangju-Kia Champions Field walked through a large tarpaulin and began preparing for the game as the rain almost stopped and the rain forecast disappeared. However, after 2:30 p.m., it suddenly began to rain at the baseball stadium and put a tarp on it again. Unlike the forecast, heavy rain fell, and the ground became a sea of water again. The heavy rain stopped at around 4 p.m., but the rain was sprinkled little by little in the dark clouds. A large tarpaulin was laid in the infield, but the outfield had all the rain from the night before, making it difficult to play.
The game drew attention due to LG’s competition for the fifth starter and KIA’s Yoon Young-chul’s competition for the Rookie of the Year. 토토사이트
LG starter Lee Ji-gang is playing as a fifth starter, but has yet to win. He has lost three games and a 4.54 ERA in 13 games. However, expectations are high for this appearance as he pitched 5⅓ innings against the Samsung Lions on the 4th and pitched well with 4 hits (one home run) and 2 runs. On the previous day, Lee Jung-yong recorded his first starting win with five scoreless innings. With the recruitment of Choi Won-tae, one of Lee Jung-yong and Lee Ji-gang has to go to the bullpen, but Lee Jung-yong, a former setup man, will go to the bullpen. However, since Lee Jung-yong has stood tall as a starting pitcher with two consecutive games of scoreless pitching, the coaching staff’s choice may change if Lee Ji-gang appears unstable. For Lee Ji-gang, it is a very important game to protect the fifth starter.
KIA Yoon Young-chul is competing for the Rookie of the Year award with Hanwha Eagles Moon Dong-joo as a high school graduate. He is 7-4 with a 3.81 ERA in 16 games. He has been on the rise since he became a winning pitcher for the past four consecutive games. Moon Dong-joo has six wins (7 losses), so if Yoon Young-chul takes the victory and takes his eighth win, he can be ahead of Moon Dong-joo.
