‘Gochuk Solo Concert’ on 11th, KBO League cancels Jamsil, Incheon, Gwangju, Changwon due to heavy rain

Four of the five KBO League games scheduled to be played on Nov. 11 have been canceled due to heavy rainfall across the country. Only the Gocheok Dome will get underway as normal.

The first game to be canceled was the Hanwha Eagles and LG Twins at 4:15 p.m. in Jamsil Stadium in Seoul. Hanwha was scheduled to start Seung-hyuk Han and LG was scheduled to start Chan-gyu Im, but the game was canceled, and both teams will switch starting pitchers on the 12th, with Hanwha starting Dong-ju Moon and LG starting Casey Kelly.

LG, which removed Adam Plutko from the first-team roster after his first-half appearance on the 9th, called up pitcher Lee Sang-kyu on the same day. Current leader LG, with a season record of 49 wins, 2 losses and 29 draws, and a 2.5-game lead over second-place SSG Landers, which is 46 wins, 1 loss and 31 draws, was scheduled to attempt to reach 50 wins for the season, but the rain delayed the attempt by a day.

Hanwha also removed foreign pitcher Felix Peña from the roster on Tuesday and designated outfielder Lee Won-seok and infielder Ha Ju-seok for assignment, along with rookie infielder Lee Min-joon. It was the first call-up of the season for Ha, who was suspended for 70 games for a DUI, and the first in 276 days since his last regular-season game on Oct. 8 against the Changwon NC.

Following the suspension, SSG’s game against the Doosan Bears at SSG Landers Field in Incheon was also canceled. Prior to the game, SSG was in a tumultuous mood after reports of hazing and assaults within SSG’s second-team squad surfaced, and the team returned to action after a day’s rest. Kim Dong-joo vs. Lee Gun-wook’s start was canceled.

Five minutes later, the Samsung Lions and KIA Tigers game at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field was also canceled. Samsung’s Won Tae-in and KIA’s Yoon Young-chul were scheduled to start the game. The Gwangju game was especially interesting as it was the first matchup after the one-for-one trade of catcher Kim Tae-gun and infielder Ryu Ji-hyuk on May 5, but it was also postponed and will have to be confirmed a day later.

The ‘Nakdong River Derby’ between the Lotte Giants and NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park was canceled due to the ground conditions. Lotte was scheduled to start Na Kyun-ahn, who will make his second start since returning from elbow inflammation, and NC was scheduled to start Eric Peddy, who will be looking for his 12th win of the season.메이저사이트

Meanwhile, with all four games canceled due to rain, the game between KT Wiz and Kiwoom Heroes at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul became the center of attention for baseball fans. Prior to the game, 7th-ranked Kiwoom had 38 wins, 2 draws, and 43 losses, and 8th-ranked KT had 34 wins, 2 draws, and 41 losses, with only one game separating the two teams. Both teams have lost four straight games, and on this day, one team will break the four-game losing streak and the other will fall into a five-game losing streak.
