We need to cut off the bad flow.
By the 10th, the contrast between the 10 clubs who played the first weekday and weekend 3 consecutive games of the season was clearly divided. While there are teams that are showing a strong trend with winning streaks, there are not a few teams that have taken heavy steps due to unexpected losing streaks.
Kiwoom Heroes, Samsung Lions, and Hanwha Eagles are all teams with more than three consecutive losses. Kiwoom and Samsung are on a 4-game losing streak, and after Hanwha won their first win of the season against Samsung on the 6th, they lost all 3 home matches against SSG Landers on the weekend (7th-9th).
Team 3 is aiming for a rebound right from the 11th. Kiwoom plays Doosan Bears in Jamsil, Samsung plays SSG in Daegu, and Hanwha plays KIA Tigers in Gwangju.
A ‘lose-loss stopper’ is desperately needed. Kiwoom tries to escape from losing streak with Choi Won-tae, who earned his first win of the season (6 innings, 1 run) against the Gocheok LG Twins on the 5th. Samsung puts forward Won Tae-in, the native ace who took plenty of rest for six days. Hanwha will raise substitute starting pitcher Nam Ji-min.
The team facing a difficult situation in many ways is, of course, Hanwha. For Hanwha, foreign pitcher Birch Smith, who was recruited in anticipation of a first starting role, complained of shoulder pain during the opening game and is missing from the first team entry. Nam Ji-min, who was dropped as a starter on the 11th, pitched in relief against Daejeon SSG on the 8th and recorded 2 runs in 1 inning (1 earned run). After two days off, he was in charge of the selection, and the starting pitcher for the opposing team, KIA, was Yang Hyeon-jong, a veteran of the war. 먹튀검증
These three teams must break the sluggish flow in their three-game series this week. If the margin of victory or defeat widens from the beginning of the season when physical strength is intact, the team atmosphere itself can deteriorate significantly. It is not easy to aim for a rebound at the point where the physical strength has passed.
In the second half, there is also a variable called the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. Even if key players are selected from each team, the league does not stop. A power vacuum is expected, but if you stay at the bottom of the rankings, the chance of a counterattack is much reduced.
There is no worst start to the season than being cornered early in the season. It is a three-week series in which Kiwoom, Samsung, and Hanwha must risk life and death while desperately needing a hero to prevent the team’s crisis that came earlier than expected.
