a nine-game losing streak. It has been 10 years since 2013. In the match against Doosan held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 6th, KIA hit 13 hits in a row amid starter Thomas Panoni’s scoreless pitching, winning nine consecutive games with a 7-1 complete victory.
From the match against Mokdong Nexen (currently Kiwoom) on June 8, 2013, to the match against the Hanwha Eagles in Daejeon on June 20, 2013, he won nine consecutive games. It is the first reenactment in 3,730 days. He is also close to the team’s record of 12 consecutive wins, which he recorded twice during his Haitai days.
It also entered the final round of five. +7 games with 57 wins, 2 draws and 50 losses. Although he is in fifth place, he is only one game apart from fourth-place NC and third-place SSG in third place. Even the second-place KT is within range by three games. On the contrary, Doosan, the sixth-ranked team below, was far behind by four games. The difference between second-place KT and sixth-place Doosan is closer. 스포츠토토
Entering the fall baseball league is no longer a problem. The era of the KIA Tigers is shaking the top ranks.
LG, which was trying to secure a winning series and solidify its lead in a showdown with second-place KT, suffered a come-from-behind defeat of 3-4 on the 6th as Ko Woo-suk failed to keep a three-point lead in the ninth inning. 5.5 games apart from KT. It is not yet a stage to be relieved.
As the gap between the second and fifth places becomes tighter, the remaining schedules and Asian Games variables are expected to become more important. KIA has 35 games left, the most out of 10 clubs.
The rest of the schedule is tight. To make matters worse, starter Lee Eui-ri, bullpen Choi Ji-min, and first baseman and outfielder Choi Won-joon will be transferred to the national team on the 22nd. Compared to other teams, the blow is bigger. In addition, KIA has a lot of games left against the top teams.
There are six games against No. 1 LG, seven games against No. 2 KT, three games against No. 3 SSG, and six games against No. 4 NC. It will be an uphill battle amid a tight schedule, but a crisis could soon be an opportunity. If you draw results in a match against a top team, you can soar to a higher place. Baseball is impossible to predict. It is also difficult to predict KIA’s future moves.
There is baseball that keeps KIA’s rise, but it is a formidable lineup. After Na Sung-bum and Kim Do-young returned from injury, the balance of the upper and lower batters is close to perfect. Even if the mound shakes a little, it plays a game that can be won by filling it with the power of the batters. That’s the secret of winning consecutive games. Kim Do-young’s transfer to the national team is regrettable for him, but it is a great force for the team’s batting lineup.
Although the team is highly dependent on the batting line for “unbelievable,” it does not seem to turn off easily. After winning consecutive games, management of aftereffects is expected to be a variable. KIA’s big leap forward that shakes the top ranks. How far will it go. At least the current top ranking alignment is increasingly likely to be tangled.
