During the week, the heatwave was rampant, but on the weekend, the rain is a problem. As the rainy season front moved north again, two KBO League games could not be held normally.
The 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League match between Gwangju Doosan Bears and KIA Tigers and Jamsil SSG Landers and LG Twins, scheduled to be held on the 22nd, was canceled due to rain.
On this day, it rained heavily in the Gwangju area from the morning, and the Gwangju-KIA Champions Field was affected by monsoon rain throughout the day. Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) game supervisor Han Yong-deok checked the condition of the ground around 4:00 p.m. and decided to watch the situation.바카라
While Doosan’s team’s longest winning streak (11 consecutive wins) has been delayed, Doosan Kwak Bin and KIA Thomas Panoni, who were scheduled to pitch as starting pitchers on the 22nd, will start and face off on the 23rd.
However, according to the forecast of the Korea Meteorological Administration, on the 23rd there is rain forecast all day in the Gwangju area, so it is unclear whether the game will start. KIA, which has played the least number of games (77 games) among the 10 clubs, is bound to have bigger concerns.
In the case of the Jamsil game, the players of both teams had been training normally and only had ‘play ball’ ahead, but with 5 minutes left before the start of the game, the rain became thicker and the players of both teams had to hurriedly avoid the rain.
As the tarpaulin was installed on the ground, the referees decided to watch the future situation, but it rained heavily in a short period of time. As the rain did not stop, the decision to cancel the rain was eventually announced at 6:20 pm, and the players of both teams lined up on the ground to greet the fans.
Song Chan-eui, Lee Joo-hyung, and Moon Seong-joo of LG held a rain ceremony for the home fans, and foreign hitter Austin Dean also showed head first sliding to soothe the regret of the rain cancellation.
SSG will entrust Loenis Elias, who was predicted to be the starting pitcher on the 22nd, as the starting pitcher. Naturally, Kirk McCarty’s return schedule was also delayed. LG, which is trying to escape from three consecutive losses, announced that Lee Jung-yong, not Adam Plutko, who was scheduled to start on the 22nd, would be the starting pitcher.
The NC-Hanwha (Daejeon), KT-Samsung (Daegu), and Kiwoom-Lotte (Sajik) matches are proceeding normally.
