Are ‘Autumn Invitations’ handed out in the sky?… ‘5th place’ brought down by bad luck, ‘1st place’ saved by rain

 Is it ultimately up to the sky?

The KIA Tigers lost 6 to 8 in a home game against the Doosan Bears held at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 15th.

The bullpen’s failure in the second half of the game was the ‘decisive blow’,메이저사이트 but the impact of ‘bad luck’ could not be ignored.

Strangely enough, the game wasn’t going well. KIA was losing 0-1 in the top of the second inning with two outs and starting pitcher Yoon Young-cheol hit by Jeong Soo-bin. Yoon Young-cheol, who faced follow-up hitter Kim Jae-ho, kept first base in check at 1B-2S. Just then, Soo-bin Soo’s start was made by stealing second base, and the check seemed to be a huge success.

However, in the end, Yoon Young-cheol’s checks became ‘invalid’. Nothing happened. The moment Yoon Young-cheol was in check, Kim Jae-ho asked for time. The referee accepted this. It was a narrow gap, but the referee’s time declaration was quick. In the end, they were able to end the inning by sending out Kim Jae-ho with a walk and catching Yang Seok-hwan with a grounder.

The absurd out count also went up. In the bottom of the second inning, KIA’s leadoff hitter, Choi Hyeong-woo, got on base with a double, and Kim Sun-bin’s ground ball put the team on third base with one out.

Lee Woo-seong hit a ball that went toward third baseman Heo Gyeong-min. Heo Gyeong-min’s throw to first base missed, and the runner on third base hit home.

Lee Woo-sung aimed to advance from first base to second base. As soon as he rounded the first base, he collided with the first base umpire. An accident that occurred when we couldn’t see each other properly. According to the rules, collisions with referees are not considered interference. Lee Woo-sung and the first base umpire fell to the ground. Meanwhile, Doosan tagged Lee Woo-sung, and the out count went up. A situation where there was a chance with 1 out and 2 on base, but with 2 outs and no runners. KIA, exhausted, finished the bottom of the second inning without even the follow-up batter being able to hit a hit.

Even true records were allowed. Kang Seung-ho, who hit a home run, triple, and double after a walk, sent the ball in front of the pitcher in the top of the 9th inning with one out and first base. The batted ball was headed straight toward Jeong Hae-young, bounced loudly, and fell to the side. Kang Seung-ho settles at first base. He became the 30th cycling hit protagonist in KBO League history. At the same time, the KBO League’s first ‘reverse cycling hit’ was born as it was done in the order of ‘home run-triple-double-hit’.

For KIA, the performance was disappointing enough to just blame it on ‘bad luck’. However, if they had been lucky in the early stages, KIA could have definitely gained momentum. To that extent, the more I thought about ‘misfortune’, the more it became a regret. In the end, KIA (60 wins, 2 draws, 55 losses), which was in 4th place, fell to 5th place, and even lost ground with 6th place Doosan (62 wins, 1 draw, 57 losses).

The game between LG Twins and Hanwha Eagles held at Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park in Daejeon. LG Twins smiled despite the rain.

It was raining on and off before the game. LG scored the first run in the top of the second inning with Oh Ji-hwan’s single and Moon Bo-kyung’s timely double.

Hanwha’s counterattack was also formidable. Following Choi Jae-hoon’s walk, Williams, Moon Hyun-bin, and Kim Tae-yeon’s doubles turned the game around to 3-1.

The score was tied when LG made up for 2 runs in the 3rd inning. They took the lead in the top of the fifth inning with Austin’s timely hit with runners on first and third base.

A game on thin ice. LG’s ‘finishing’ was done by heaven. It rained heavily before the top of the 7th inning began. We waited for 47 minutes, but the rain did not subside, and a rain cold game was eventually declared.

LG was able to smile thanks to the rain for the first time in a while. In the Gwangju KIA game on the 8th of last month, they were ahead 8-0 until the second inning, but they swallowed their disappointment as it was called a no game due to rain.

The disappointment of about a month ago was rewarded at the moment when I needed it most. Thanks to the rain, LG’s starter Kim Yun-sik pitched 5 innings and Kim Jin-seong only pitched 1 inning. The game on the 17th will be played as a double header. LG was able to put forth all-out effort in the remaining games while conserving the bullpen.

LG recorded 71 wins (2 draws, 47 losses) this season and firmly maintained its lead, 5.5 games ahead of second place KT Wiz (67 wins, 3 draws, 54 losses).
