Two KBO League games scheduled to be held in Jamsil and Incheon on the 22nd were canceled due to the rain that poured all at once.
First, the Lotte Giants and LG Twins 스포츠토토 were scheduled to play the 12th game between the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League teams at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 22nd. Lotte, who lost 3 consecutive losses, ranked 7th with a season record of 50 wins and 54 losses, while the leader LG recorded 64 wins, 2 draws and 38 losses.
However, it started to rain in the Jamsil area from this afternoon, and the raindrops became thicker ahead of the start of the game. In the end, it was decided to cancel the game at 4:40 p.m. because it was difficult to start the game. Both Lotte and LG canceled the 13th rain of the season. The two pitchers announced on the 22nd are scheduled to pitch on the 23rd.
The 11th game between the teams of NC Dinos and SSG Landers, which was scheduled to be held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon, was canceled at 6:05 pm due to ground conditions. SSG, who fell to 3rd place, had 56 wins, 1 draw and 46 losses, and 4th place NC had 52 wins, 2 draws and 48 losses, leaving a gap of 3 games between the two teams. NC Choi Seong-young and SSG Moon Seung-won, who were scheduled to start on the 22nd, will take a day off to prepare for the match on the 23rd.
Meanwhile, play balls were declared normally for the remaining three games. KIA Tigers and KT Wiz faced each other at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, and Samsung Lions and Hanwha Eagles met at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park. At Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, which is not affected by the rain, the Doosan Bears started the game with a two-point lead over the Kiwoom Heroes.
