Can we have the best regular season finish?
The LG Twins began their long September expedition on the 5th. After completing the three-game series between KT Wiz and Suwon by the 7th, they will play a four-game series, including a double header, against the KIA Tigers in Gwangju from the 8th. After resting for three days, the team moves to Changwon (14th) and Daejeon (15th) to face NC Dinos and Hanwha Eagles, respectively.
LG has been in the sole lead since June 27th. The team has been on a high-flying march to the point of recording an overwhelming plus in the margin of victory and defeat, and this away trip is expected to be the most important watershed in LG’s challenge to win the regular season.
LG suffered a blow by recording a series of losing series in the previous three-game series against NC (August 25-27) and Hanwha (September 1-3). On the other hand, second-place KT achieved a high winning percentage of 0.826 in August alone and began chasing LG, but LG can widen the gap to a comfortable level only by gaining the upper hand in three consecutive games with KT.
The KIA match that will take place immediately afterwards is also burdensome. KIA, which has been gaining momentum since the end of August, has entered the battle for third place thanks to its winning streak. As this is a team that is clearly motivated to participate in the fall baseball season, a bloody battle is expected for LG in this four-game series. Meeting NC and Hanwha again, which gave them a losing series in the previous meeting, is also a burden for LG.
Once all 9 away games are completed, LG will not return to their home stadium, Jamsil Stadium, until the 16th. The person you will meet here is SSG Landers. The team atmosphere has cooled off recently, but we can never let down our guard as this is a team that was consistently competing with LG for the lead until the first half of the season. For LG, the best scenario is to achieve satisfactory results on the away road that lasts until the 15th and then meet SSG at home. A double header with SSG is also scheduled on the 17th.
If the match against SSG is completed safely, LG will have the opportunity to kill ‘two birds with one stone’. This is the ‘1 million spectators’ title that will be earned along with the performance.
As of the 5th, LG ranks first among the 10 teams with 943,183 home spectators this season. As there are still enough home games remaining, it is expected that 1 million spectators will be easily achieved. If LG reaches 1 million spectators, the KBO League will have a team that received the love of 1 million spectators again for the first time in four years since 2019. The team that attracted 1 million spectators before the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) pandemic was also LG in 2019.카지노
Achieving a regular season championship with 1 million home spectators is the best end to a season for a professional baseball team. This is the greatest achievement that can be made ahead of the postseason. For LG, the September expedition is more important than ever to kill two birds with one stone. Will the ‘Twin Corps’ be able to achieve the desired results and return to their home in Jamsil on the 16th?
