The game between the Doosan Bears and LG Twins has been canceled due to rain. However, both teams will not change their starting pitchers.
Doosan and LG were scheduled to meet in the “Jamsil Rivalry” matchup in the 11th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League season at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Monday. However, all five games were canceled after rain poured across the country that day.
The game was very important for both teams, not only because of the symbolism of the “Jamsil Rivalry,” but also because both teams have been in a bad mood lately. Doosan won the first game of their three-game series against SSG Landers last weekend, but dropped two games in a row to record a losing series and slip to sixth place.
The same was true for LG. Coming off a regular season title run, LG suffered the worst possible fate, dropping all three games against the NC Dinos in Changwon. This left the team in an uncomfortable position as the gap between them and second-place KT Wiz shrank to 4.5 games. However, there was a silver lining in the aftermath of the rain that poured throughout the day.
Doosan and LG started Brandon Waddell and Lee Jeong-yong, respectively, on the day, and they were both retained for Game 30. Doosan was scheduled to start Brandon on the 29th and then Lee Won-jae on the 30th, but with the game canceled due to rain, Doosan decided to delay Lee Won-jae’s start and use Brandon.
Like last year, Brandon, who wore Doosan’s uniform as a substitute foreign player this year, hasn’t fared well against LG in his career, going 1-1 with a 15.75 ERA, but he’s been a “filial son” this year, going 6-3 with a 3.10 ERA in 10 appearances.
LG will also keep Lee Jung-yong in the lineup. After tossing a six-inning no-hitter against the Kiwoom Heroes on the 2nd, Lee threw another six-inning no-hitter against the KIA Tigers on the 9th, and in his most recent outing against the Samsung Lions on the 16th, Lee pitched six innings of two-run ball (two earned runs) to extend his personal winning streak to two games.메이저사이트
Meanwhile, rain was scheduled to fall in the Seoul metropolitan area on the 30th, but as the weather situation has changed, the Korea Meteorological Administration has now predicted that there will be no rain on the 30th.
