Due to heavy rain in the south, Monday’s game and later schedules… Raindrops pouring down in Jamsil, no games or heavy rain cold anxiety creeping in
All four games scheduled to be held in the southern region were canceled due to heavy rain. With three Monday games and another game to be scheduled at a later date, there is an atmosphere of anxiety over the possibility of a no game or a rain cold game at Jamsil Stadium, where raindrops are starting to fall.
As of 3:30 p.m., the KBO officially announced the cancellation of Gwangju, Daejeon, Sajik, and Changwon games due to rain.메이저놀이터
The Gwangju Doosan-KIA match, Daejeon KT-Hanwha match, and Sajik Kiwoom-Lotte match were rescheduled to Monday, September 18 at 6:30 p.m. The Changwon Samsung-NC match, which did not have a reserve date, will be scheduled at a later date.
The only place where the game can be played as normal on the 16th is Jamsil Stadium. SSG and LG will face off at Jamsil Stadium on the 16th. LG will have Casey Kelly and SSG will have Oh Won-seok on the starting mound that day.
On this day, LG had Hong Chang-ki (right fielder) – Shin Min-jae (second baseman) – Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter) – Austin (first baseman) – Oh Ji-hwan (shortstop) – Moon Bo-kyung (3rd baseman) – Park Dong-won (catcher) – Moon Seong-ju (left fielder) – Park Hae-min (center fielder) ), and the starting batting order continues.
SSG against LG is Choo Shin-soo (designated hitter) – Choi Ji-hoon (center fielder) – Choi Jeong (3rd baseman) – Heredia (left fielder) – Choi Joo-hwan (1st baseman) – Park Seong-han (shortstop) – Han Yu-seom (right fielder) – Kim Seong-hyun (2nd baseman) -The starting lineup was drawn up with Kim Min-sik (catcher).
The head coaches of both teams also seemed to want the game to proceed as normal on the 16th. LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Yesterday was the first time this season that we benefited from the rain (rainy rain cold win). If the game is canceled due to rain today (16th), it would be better to play the game on Monday because 9 consecutive games would have to be played. Looking at the forecast, similar to yesterday, the game may be stopped around midway, so I think we should take that into account when operating the game.”
SSG coach Kim Won-hyung also hoped for the game to proceed as normally as possible due to the starting rotation issue. Coach Kim said, “Anyway, today either Oh Won-seok or Moon Seung-won had to start. I was worried because Oh Won-seok is weak against LG, but I considered LG’s batting lineup, which has many left-handed hitters. If today’s game is canceled before the start due to rain, Oh Won-seok can start Monday’s game. However, if the game is canceled in the middle of the game, I think Seung-won Moon will have to start on Monday and Jong-hoon Park will have to start on Tuesday.”
According to the Korea Meteorological Administration’s forecast, the rain is expected to become increasingly stronger from 6 p.m. As there is a strong possibility that the game will be suspended due to rain in the middle of the game, attention will also be focused on whether the benches of both teams will be able to squeeze out points through early game strategies.
