“It’s nice to have a break… but there are too many canceled games, so it’s a big deal.”
After winning two victories in a row, he took a day off during the week. It was pleasant, but the head of the command tower was complicated.메이저사이트
The KIA Tigers will play the first game of the weekend series against the Lotte Giants at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 2nd.
KIA coach Kim Jong-guk, who I met before the game, drew a puncture mark on his forehead, saying, “It’s a big deal because there are too many expedition cancellations” when the story of the cancellation of the KT Wiz game in the rain the day before came out.
“We have to play more games before the heat hits…Thanks to that, the physical part is good now, but if we go later, I think we will be at a disadvantage. Too many cancellations.”
KIA currently has 9 matches. There are only 2 home matches (Lotte KT). As for the expedition, 3 consecutive matches in Suwon against KT and 3 consecutive matches in Changwon against NC were canceled altogether, and there is one away match in Daegu against Samsung. As the command tower, the schedule for the second half of the season is inevitable.
Still, they recently recorded a winning series against Samsung Kiwoom, Hanwha, and 1 win and 2 losses against LG. It is Lotte who meets KT after two straight breaks. Although Lotte is said to have been on the rise with a win-loss margin of +10 in May, KIA is also not far behind in momentum.
However, repeated rain cancellations brought new concerns. The rookie selection test that was originally being prepared was canceled.
KIA Hwang Dong-ha pitching.
Coach Kim initially planned to check the condition of Hwang Dong-ha, Kim Jae-yeol, and Kim Yu-shin, and appoint one of them as a substitute starter in place of Anderson. This year, the season does not stop during the Asian Games. Considering the possibility of hiring Lee Eui-ri and Yoon Young-chul, it is also important to test such alternative power.
However, as the previous day’s game was canceled, the rotation of Yang Hyeon-jong on the 2nd, Medina on the 3rd, and Lee Eui-ri on the 4th will operate normally. Director Kim sighed, saying, “I’ll think about it next week.”
“The players have done very well in the past two months. Isn’t it not perfect as many key players are missing? The fielding team will be better with Na Seong-beom and Kim Do-young returning, and the pitching staff needs to make it more stable.”
