[Professional Baseball Observatory] Doosan·Lotte·KIA, PS entry test stand… All-out war at the threshold of autumn
7th place Lotte, 1st place LG-2nd place kt in a row… KIA, 6th in the biggest hurdle, pursues with the surviving other line…
5th place Doosan expects Yang Eui-ji to join
The heat wave is gradually receding, but the competition for the professional baseball rankings,
which is fighting for a ticket to the postseason, is getting hotter.
In particular, Doosan Bears, KIA Tigers, and Lotte Giants are poised to engage in an all-out war for the 5th place,
the ‘last car’ of the autumn party.
7th place Lotte is on the test bed with 1st place LG Twins and 2nd place kt wiz.
From the 22nd to the 24th, Lotte will play three consecutive matches against LG, which is running for first place,
at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, and from the 25th, at Sajik Stadium in Busan,
Lotte will play against kt, which is on the rise. 바카라사이트
In Lotte, both teams are tough opponents.
Lotte is behind LG this season with 5 wins and 6 losses and kt with 3 wins and 9 losses.
Furthermore, the atmosphere subsided as Lotte lost by less than 3 points in all three consecutive matches against the lowest Kiwoom Heroes recently.
On the other hand, LG, who crossed the 7th division ridge in the regular season,
won 7 wins (3 losses) in the last 10 games, and kt harvested 8 wins (2 losses).
Depending on the results of this week’s 6 games with LG and kt, Lotte may take the 5th place or be pushed to the bottom.
Lotte is chasing 5th place Doosan by 1.5 games, but it is only 4.5 games away from 8th place Hanwha Eagles.
In Lotte, the fourth week of August seems to be the turning point for fall baseball.
Doosan has been sluggish with 1 win and 6 losses in the last 7 games,
but they are aiming for a rebound with the main catcher Yang Eui-ji returning from injury.
Yang Eui-ji, who was canceled from the entry due to a left flank injury on the 8th,
is scheduled to return in three consecutive matches with Kiwoom, which will be held from the 22nd.
The joining of Yang Eui-ji is expected to be a strength in all areas such as offense, mound, and defense.
After Yang Eui-ji’s injury, Doosan’s record plummeted to 3 wins and 7 losses.
After 3 consecutive matches with Kiwoom, he competes against SSG in the living room.
Doosan lost to SSG this season with 2 wins and 6 losses.
6th place KIA will play a home game against the Hanwha Eagles from the 25th after playing an away game against kt.
KIA was very strong this season with 6 wins and 1 loss against kt, and was on par with Hanwha with 5 wins, 6 losses and 1 draw.
Its KIA, whose team batting average reached 0.335 in the last 5 games, expects the power of a burning bat.
KIA infielder Park Chan-ho and catcher Kim Tae-goon are batting average in the 50% range in their last 5 games.
4th place NC Dinos had a chance to rise to 3rd place.
Starting on the 22nd, we will play three consecutive away matches against SSG in third place.
If NC, which is behind SSG by 3 games, catches all 3 games, it can even look at a direct ticket to the playoffs.
In NC, Lee Jae-hak, who left due to a left foot injury, joins the starting rotation to add strength.
SSG recently fell into a 5-game losing streak, but on the 20th,
they finally wiped their sweat by winning a new victory over LG.
Now, it is necessary to prevent the strong pursuit of NC and Doosan, which are aiming for the top ranks.
The 9th place Samsung Lions meet the 8th place Hanwha Eagles and the 10th place Kiwoom in succession to try to escape from the lower ranks.
The performance of Koo Ja-wook (Samsung, 0.345),
who hit 4 home runs with a batting average of 0.441 in the last 10 games, is also raising expectations.
