KIA Tigers lost again by one point.
KIA lost 1-2 in the match against Kiwoom Heroes held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 14th. KIA recorded 5 consecutive losses without a win in Gocheok away matches this season, and continued to lose 2 wins and 6 losses against Kiwoom. KIA, which fell into a pit of three consecutive losses with the defeat on this day, maintained 6th place in the league with 25 wins and 30 losses in the season.
It was a disappointing match for KIA in many ways. 메이저사이트 The batting line hit 9 hits, but not a single timely hit came out. The score scored by Socrates’ ground ball from 1st, 1st and 3rd base in the beginning of the 3rd inning was the only RBI that day. On the other hand, Kiwoom only scored 5 hits, but Lee Jung-hoo’s triple and Russell’s timely hit in the 4th inning, Kim Hye-sung’s triple and Lee Jung-hoo’s sacrifice fly in the 6th inning easily scored 2 points. KIA starting pitcher Shawn Anderson, who had even mentioned the possibility of a replacement, struggled with 5 hits, 2 runs, and 9 strikeouts in 7 innings, but lost his 6th season due to lack of scoring support.
KIA’s defeat by 1 point is already the 7th only in June. Lotte Giants on the 3rd (5-6), SSG Landers sweep from the 6th to 8th (1-2, 8-9, 4-5), Doosan Bears on the 11th (2-3), and 13 Following the 0-1 loss against Kiwoom on the day, they were defeated by 1 point until today. The results were not bad in the 1-point match with 3 wins and 2 losses in April and 2 wins and 2 losses in May, but in June, they lost all 1-point matches. KIA is the weakest team among the 10 teams in the league with 5 wins and 11 losses (0.313 win rate) by 1 point.
It is a level of concern that repeated close matches and defeats will cause ‘fear of one point difference’. Of the 30 losses KIA recorded this season, 11 of them, more than a third, were losses by one point. As the match of Park Bing is repeated, the input of Pil Seung-jo becomes more frequent and fatigue accumulates. The mental damage felt by the players at the thought of missing a game they could have caught increases, and the team atmosphere inevitably subsides.
KIA maintains a mid-level position in a situation where it does not have full power, but it seems to be getting weaker recently. The gap with 5th place Doosan widened to 3.5 games, and 7th place Kiwoom, who had 4 consecutive wins, was allowed to chase up to 1 game. It remains to be seen when KIA, which is continuing its difficult endurance, will end its losing streak by 1 point.
