Lotte will play a 2024 Shinhan Bank SOL Bank KBO League double header against KT Wiz at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 21st.

The game to be held on the 20th was canceled due to the influence of spring rain that soaked the country, and the doubleheader was confirmed on the 21st.

In order to prevent cancellation games from being reorganized at the end of the season and the schedule being stretched like a rubber band, the KBO League decided to proceed with a double header if there are cancellation games among the three consecutive weekend games from April this season.

The last place can be changed through this double header.

Lotte (6 wins and 16 losses), which has remained at the bottom since the 12th, came from behind to win 4-3 in the first round of the three consecutive games of Sajik on the 19th, catching up with KT (7 wins and 17 losses), ranking ninth, without a ride.

If Lotte, which has taken the lead, wins one win, one draw, or two wins in the double header with KT, it can rise to ninth place.

If Lotte succeeds in sweeping the double header, it will record “two wins a day” in 933 days after October 1, 2021.

The giant squad is full of confidence, and the last team to sweep a double header was KT. At the time, Han Dong-hee hit the final hit in both the first and second games, securing a one-point victory in both 4-3 and 3-2. Kim Won-joong took responsibility for the back door and harvested two saves a day.

If Lotte sweeps the doubleheader, it will record its first four consecutive wins of the season and a sweep of three consecutive games. Lotte, under new coach Kim Tae-hyung ahead of this season, has never swept three consecutive games. The winning series was also experienced once, recording two wins and one loss against the Doosan Bears from the 5th to the 7th.

To sweep a double header, you have to bring the atmosphere from the first game. For this, the role of Aaron Wilkerson, who was announced as the starting pitcher in the first game, is important.

Wilkerson has slowed down with one win and two losses with a 4.61 ERA in five games this season, but he has endured more than five innings. In addition, he was also strong against KT. In last year’s game against KT, he pitched well with six hits, eight strikeouts, and two runs (one earned run) in seven innings.
