July was a typhoon. It was a complete rebellion by the lower ranked teams.
The leaderboard until June and the leaderboard in July were completely different. By June, LG Twins, SSG Landers, NC Dinos, Lotte Giants, Kiwoom Heroes, Doosan Bears, KT Wiz, Hanwha Eagles, KIA Tigers, and Samsung Lions were in order.토토사이트
However, the teams ranked 6th to 10th until June changed drastically in July. They occupied the top of the leaderboard from 1st to 5th until the All-Star break.
Doosan took 1st place with 9 consecutive wins throughout July, and KIA showed a reversal of 6 consecutive wins and was ranked 2nd with 7 wins and 2 losses and a win rate of 7.78. KT with 6 wins and 4 losses was in 3rd place, Hanwha with 4 wins and 3 losses was in 4th place, and Samsung with 4 wins and 5 losses was in 5th place.
1st place LG ranked 6th with 3 wins and 4 losses, and 2nd place SSG ranked 8th with 2 wins and 5 losses. NC was 7th with 3 wins and 6 losses, Kiwoom, who lost 7 consecutive losses, was 9th with 3 wins and 8 losses, and Lotte was last with 2 wins and 6 losses.
Doosan had a truly perfect first half finale. Won all 9 matches. In 9 games, the team’s ERA was only 1.76, and the team’s batting average was a whopping 2.99. The harmony between the two was excellent. Kwak Bin won 2 wins with 11 scoreless innings in 2 games, and Brandon Waddell, who returned, also raised the mood by posting 2 wins with an average ERA of 1.38 in 2 games. Finisher Hong Gun-hee recorded 4 saves, 1 hold, and setup man Jung Cheol-won recorded 1 win, 2 saves and 3 holds.
Kang Seung-ho added a whopping 12 RBIs with 12 hits and 2 home runs in 9 games, contributing greatly to his winning streak. Yang Eui-ji posted a batting average of 4.8% (13 hits in 27 at-bats) and 1 home run and 5 RBIs in 8 games, and Yang Seok-hwan also scored 6 RBIs with 2 homers. Park Joon-young, who came as a reward player for FA Park Se-hyeok, also posted a batting average of 4.17 li (5 hits in 12 at-bats) and 1 home run and 5 RBIs in 4 games, and Su-bin Su, along with a nimble defense, also recorded a batting average of 3.6 1 li (36 at bats) in batting. 13 hits) 8 points and 4 RBIs were very active. Jose Rojas, who was sluggish, also recorded a batting average of .333 (9 hits in 27 at-bats) and 6 RBIs. It was to the point where it was easier to find a bad player than a good player.
If the winning streak continues, they may have to work hard to win, and they may experience physical difficulties, but with the all-star break, they can start the second half again with sufficient rest.
KIA also fell to ninth place and the atmosphere went down, but in July, the team was reorganized and showed a reversal of results. Ryu Ji-hyeok was sent to Samsung, veteran catcher Kim Tae-gun was brought in, and Sanchez and Panoni were recruited by replacing both foreign pitchers. As Na Seong-beom and Kim Do-young, who returned from injury, filled the batting line, KIA’s pitching power was upgraded. In July, with an ERA of 2.14 and a batting average of 2.887, both ranked second, showing a clear upward trend. It will be time for Kim Tae-goon and new pitcher Sanchez, who had to start as soon as the All-Star break came, to adjust to the team.
KT, which succeeded in getting out of last place by rising to No. 1 in June, is also aiming for the second half with stable power. Although he slowed down with 3 consecutive losses to KIA, he reversed the atmosphere by sweeping the last 3 consecutive games in the first half against Kiwoom. There are many veterans before the start, so the rest period helps to manage physical strength.
Hanwha also finished the first half with Moon Dong-ju’s victory and entered the break in a good mood. The two-hit balance is good, especially the bullpen is leading the team’s upward trend.
Samsung, which is at the bottom, still has a little hope. The mound, which ranked third overall with an ERA of 2.89, is showing a stable appearance. Koo Ja-wook returned and hit the batting average of 30.48 li (8 hits in 23 at-bats) in 7 games, and the batting line is reviving.
Lotte’s fall is regrettable. The team’s batting average is 2.45, and the average ERA is 6.78, all of which are in last place. Jack Rex, a foreign hitter who should have been a source of strength, could not overcome his injury and continued his sluggish batting average of 106.7, and only Yoon Dong-hee (batting average 0.345) and Kim Min-seok (batting average 0.308) showed good batting, and it was regrettable that the main players were not batting. . The pitching staff also had no pitchers with good results except Kim Won-joong, who recorded two saves, and Kim Sang-soo, who showed signs of recovery. Lotte chooses to break up with Rex and hires a new batter, Nico Goodrum, to turn the game around in the second half.
The one-week All-Star break was the break every team wanted. Which team added more strength tells the performance of the second half. In particular, how different will the rest of July be from before? With the scorching heat, a full-fledged ranking battle begins.
