KBO decided to cancel the match between LG Twins and Lotte Giants in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ scheduled to be held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul from 6:30 pm on the 23rd. It was 4:15 p.m. when the KBO decided to cancel the rainy day.

From this morning, a lot of rain soaked the ground of Jamsil Stadium. A mound and home plate were installed early, but to no avail.

The two teams were scheduled to face each other at Jamsil Stadium the day before (22nd), but the match was also canceled due to rain. Two of the three matches scheduled for this week have already been canceled due to rain. Matches canceled due to rain the day before and today will be rescheduled later.

LG has had 14 games canceled due to rain this year. Lotte also canceled its 14th game due to rain.

Like the previous day, LG and Lotte announced Lee Jeong-yong and Aaron Wilkerson as starting pitchers, respectively. However, their confrontation failed again.

Both teams are scheduled to face off on the 24th from 6:30 pm. There is a change in the matchup of starting pitchers for both teams. Both teams decided to change starting pitchers. LG decided to send foreign pitcher Casey Kelly, not Lee Jeong-yong, as a starting pitcher. LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “Tomorrow (24th), Kelly will be the starting pitcher. Lee Jeong-yong will not go out as a midfielder, but will rest for one term and start again.”

Kelly is 7-7 with a 4.59 ERA in 135⅓ innings pitched in 23 games this season. He pitched in three games against Lotte this year and pitched 19⅓ innings, recording two losses and an earned run average of 3.26 without a win. Kelly’s recent appearance against Lotte was a game held at Jamsil Stadium on June 23, and at that time, Kelly did not allow a single pitch in 8 innings and made a good pitch with 7 hits, 7 strikeouts and 1 run (non-own), but was named the winning pitcher. couldn’t upload

Lotte will replace Wilkerson with Charlie Barnes as their starting pitcher. Lotte coach Larry Sutton said, “Tomorrow, Barnes will go out as a starting pitcher, and Wilkerson will start on the 25th.” Therefore, Wilkerson will start the game against KT resignation on the 25th. Barnes threw 120 innings in 22 games this season, recording 9-6 with an average ERA of 3.53, and against LG, 2 losses and an average ERA of 9.26 is not good. Recently, he played against LG in Jamsil on June 24, and 5 hits and 4 runs in 2⅓ innings did not produce good results either.

The two teams have met 11 times so far. LG has a slight advantage with 6 wins and 5 losses. LG won 2 wins and 1 loss in 3 consecutive away matches against SSG last weekend and took the winning series. Having played 104 games, LG is leading the league with 64 wins, 38 losses and 2 draws (.627 win rate). 2nd place KT is following, but still shows a significant gap with a 6.5 game gap.

Lotte, currently in 7th place, is recording 50 wins and 54 losses (.481 win rate) in 104 games. It is approaching 5th place Doosan, which is the last line to advance to the postseason, by two games. Last weekend, he was swept away in three consecutive matches against Kiwoom, and he is in desperate need of a change of mood.

On the other hand, LG registered national team setup man Jung Woo-young in the first team entry and canceled left-handed pitcher Lee Woo-chan. Jung Woo-young has appeared in 50 games this season and threw 42⅔ innings, recording 4 wins, 4 losses, 11 holds, and an ERA of 4.43.
