1st and 2nd place will be properly held, KIA-LG Gwangju will hold three consecutive games during the week…A.C.E, come out

Three important series of games will be held to determine the lead in professional baseball. KIA Tigers, the current leader, and LG Twins, the second-place team with a 1.5-game difference, are going to make all-out efforts for the No. 1 spot.스포츠토토

KIA and LG will hold three consecutive games during weekdays at the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League from Friday at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju. This is their third showdown of the season, and KIA is leading the rival team with four wins and two losses.

Currently, Kia ranks first with 41 wins, one draw and 28 losses, while LG is second with 40 wins, two draws and 30 losses, a 1.5-game deficit. Depending on the results of the series, the owner of the top spot in the standings may change.

LG, which had been No. 1 until last Thursday, slowed down to two wins and four losses last week, giving up its lead to KIA. It was painful that Choi Won-tae, Lim Chan-kyu and other starters were out due to injury. As a last resort, the team played on “Bulpen Day” but suffered a slump, losing three consecutive games to Samsung in three consecutive games during the week. It was comforting to have a winning series against Lotte with two wins and one loss in three consecutive games held in Jamsil.

Kia has not been in a bad mood in recent months. It regained No. 1 ranking last week by posting four wins and two losses by banking on its stable mound and robust batting lineup. Veteran batter Choi Hyung-woo led the team by banking on his robust hitting performance of three homers and 13 RBIs in six games last week. He successfully played three consecutive away games against the KT Wiz in an away game over the weekend, while heading to Gwangju in an upbeat mood.

In this match, both teams have aces.

KIA’s native veteran Yang Hyun-jong (5-3), James Nail (7-2), the No. 1 ERA (2.21), and new foreign Cam Aldred will take the mound in order in the three consecutive games.

Aldred was sluggish in his KBO league debut against Doosan on the 8th, but he showed a gradual adjustment to the league by allowing five scoreless innings against KT on the 14th.

Against this, LG also took out the best starting card that can be put forward.

Son Joo-young (5-3), who is consistently holding out as the fifth starter, and Casey Kelly (3-7), who is starting first and second, and Detrick Ence (8-2) will take the mound in turn.

Son has won five games this season to steadily fill his starting position, while Kelly was sluggish at the match against Samsung on Tuesday by allowing six runs in eight innings, but his pace has been getting better recently. N.S. is the leader in multiple wins with four consecutive wins.

The fight for firepower of the batters is also interesting. At KIA, Choi’s bat is on fire as he cannot afford to heat up. Choi, who achieved 1,600 RBIs (or 1,604 RBIs) for the first time last week, is showing off his stellar performance lately.

In LG, left-handed hitters such as Shin Min-jae and Moon Sung-joo, as well as Moon Bo-kyung, who recorded a batting average of 0.500 last week, show good batting performance.
