The first game of the Kia Tigers-Samsung Lions three-game series was cancelled due to rain.
Kim Tae-gun and Ryu Ji-hyuk meet their families for the first time since being traded. The monsoon rains are back.
바카라사이트On the morning of the sixth game of the season between the two teams on the 11th, it rained heavily at Gwangju Champions Field. The infield was covered with large tarps. The field was drenched. Puddles of water formed on the tarp in the infield. The foul territory and outfield dirt were also soaked.
There was a brief lull in the rain three hours before kickoff. But after 4 p.m., the torrential downpour resumed. The retracted field was a mess.
Finally, two hours before kick-off, the decision was made to cancel the game.
It was a bit of a disappointment for the home team, KIA.
The atmosphere was high before the game. After eight games on the road, the team returned home like a reformed general. It was a successful road trip with 6 wins and 2 losses. Five wins in a row. The return of Na Sung-beom and Kim Do-young from injury, the retirement of Choi Won-joon, and the addition of Kim Tae-gun have brought stability to the backline. Mario Sanchez made his debut against Suwon KT on the 9th, going 6⅓ innings with 10 Ks and 1 run. The returning Thomas Pannoni will also start the three-game series against Samsung. One game back of the fifth-place NC Dinos. The Dinos would like to end the first half in fifth place and take advantage of the overwhelmingly strong Samsung team at the bottom of the standings with five wins and a tie. Rookie Yoon Young-cheol got the start.
“If it rains, we can’t play, and if it doesn’t, we’ll play,” Kia coach Kim Jong-guk said in the pregame briefing. But Samsung is no slouch either.
It overcame a seven-game losing streak with two consecutive shutout victories in the NC last weekend. It’s been almost a month since they won back-to-back games against Lotte on the 10th and 11th of last month. The bullpen, which has been struggling, is expected to be revitalised by the performance of the Buchanan-Suarez duo. The starter was Won Tae-in, who has been on the rise lately with three consecutive quality starts.
A young ace with a fighting spirit. He is determined to end his losing streak against KIA. If the game had been played, it would have been a close contest. However, the heavens did not allow the game to take place. The rain forced a change in KIA’s starting line-up, as the team moved to indoor training to rest and prepare for the remaining two games of the series. KIA announced the return of Thomas Pannoni on the 12th against Samsung, replacing Yoon Young-cheol, who was scheduled to start on the 11th. Samsung will send Won Tae-in, who was scheduled to start on the 11th, to the 12th against KIA.
Hwang Dong-jae, who was scheduled to start on the 12th, was hit by a grenade. His last start of the first half, along with Yoon Young-chul, was stolen by rain. Meanwhile, the final game of the first half, on the 13th, will feature an ace matchup between Yang Hyun-jong and Buchanan.
