The KT Wiz, whose tremendous rise in August has slowed down in September, will play an important three-game home game to rekindle the race for the lead.먹튀검증

Starting on the 5th, 2nd place KT will invite the leader LG Twins, who are ahead by 5.5 games, to their home and engage in a fierce battle to break their losing streak and catch up with the leader. KT recorded a high win rate of over 80% last month, jumping from 5th to 2nd place and putting pressure on leader LG.

However, their upward trend was put on hold as they were swept in the Kiwoom match in the first series in September. Moreover, he suffered from poor performance, scoring only 2 points in 3 games, including two loss to Youngbong. In the game on the 1st, despite getting as many as 14 outs and 4 outs, they only had 4 hits and lost 2 to 6. On the 2nd, they suffered from 3 hits and on the 3rd, they suffered from 2 hits and were unable to score a single point.

There are concerns that the nightmare of the team’s batting lineup rapidly falling into a slump as it entered the fall of the past two years may be revived. In the last month of 2021, when KT won its first championship since its founding, it suffered from extreme sluggishness with a team batting average of 0.238 (8th), team OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.661 (8th), and scoring average of 0.205 (9th).

Last season, the team’s batting lineup continued to slump in September and the team finished in 3rd place. Fans remember the nightmare of going through a difficult time due to a series of sluggish batting lineups after entering the fall of the past two years. However, I am very worried as the nightmare of the past two years shows signs of coming back to life.

Meanwhile, KT started the week against LG this week. If they break their three-game losing streak against LG and record a winning series, they can maintain their hopes of competing for the lead, but if the losing streak continues, not only will it be difficult to secure second place, but the ‘autumn nightmare’ of the past two years may become a reality. there is.

The opposing team, LG, also suffered two consecutive losses to Hanwha on the weekend, but still boasts the best pitching and batting power in the league. As the team’s average ERA of 3.64 (1st place) and batting average of 0.283 (1st place) indicate, they have powerful pitching ability and a batting lineup.

KT’s three main players, Cuevas, Benjamin, and Ko Young-pyo, will appear one after another in the three-game series against LG. All three starters are among the best in the league, but the recovery of the batting lineup is a problem. In particular, the roles of Kim Min-hyuk and Bae Jeong-dae, who open up attack routes for key hitters such as Alford, Park Byeong-ho, and Hwang Jae-gyun, are important.

Fortunately, for KT, Kang Baek-ho is returning and Kim Sang-soo is also scheduled to return in the LG match, so they can aim for the same synergy as obtaining ‘A Thousand Warriors.’ If the batting lineup is as good as in August, it is expected that a sweep against LG will not be difficult.

Coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “Our team hasn’t shown a good batting ability recently, but we were able to focus on the opponent’s mistakes and win, but I’m worried that we’ve been sluggish again recently. The team’s batting lineup needs to come back to life as soon as possible to gain an upper hand in the last-minute ranking competition, but it is unfortunate. “I believe things will get better once Kang Baek-ho returns and the batting lineup regains stability,” he said.
