SSG Landers lost to 4th place.
SSG drew 8-8 after a fierce battle that lasted until the 12th inning of overtime in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League match against KT Wiz held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 9th. The KIA Tigers, who won both games of the double header against the LG Twins in Gwangju on the same day, beat SSG and rose to 4th place. There is no difference between the two teams. KIA has 59 wins, 2 draws, 52 losses, a winning rate of 0.532, and SSG has 61 wins, 2 draws, 54 losses, and a winning rate of 0.530.먹튀검증
The first half of this season was not bad for SSG, which won the ‘Wire to Wire’ championship last season. They finished the first half of the year in 2nd place, 2.5 games behind 1st place LG, with 46 wins, 1 draw, and 32 losses. In a situation where the starting lineup was underperforming, the bullpen pitchers held on.
However, the bullpen was overloaded in the second half of the season. The SSG bullpen’s average ERA in the first half was 3.34, ranking third after KIA and LG. However, the average ERA in the second half is 5.88. Only Kiwoom (5.94), the lowest ranked team, has a worse ERA than SSG.
In the end, I had no choice but to fall. In the second half, the team ranked 8th with a batting average of 0.260 and 9th with a team ERA of 5.19 and 5.19. Since the two-stroke performance was not good, the results were not good either. In 38 games in the second half, they had 15 wins, 1 draw, and 22 losses, with a winning percentage of 0.405. Considering only the second half performance, they are in 8th place.
SSG recorded 1 win, 1 draw, and 6 losses in 8 games held in September. They suffered a sweep loss in three consecutive home games against KIA from the 1st to the 3rd. They seemed to have succeeded in turning things around with a comeback win from 1-6 to 11-6 in the match against the Hanwha Eagles in Daejeon on the 5th, but they lost both of their subsequent games. It is 1 draw and 1 loss against KT. From SSG’s perspective, they must avoid three consecutive losing series and succeed in turning the atmosphere around.
SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said on the 8th, “You have to win the game to change the atmosphere. No matter how good or okay things are, if bad situations continue to occur, the atmosphere is bound to deteriorate. That’s why one win right away is important. That can completely change the atmosphere.” .
SSG, who fell to 5th place, will try to turn things around and end this week. SSG’s starting pitcher against Suwon KT on the 10th is Kirk McCarty. McCarty has 21 games, 9 wins, 4 losses, 119 ⅓ innings, 46 runs (38 earned runs), and an average ERA of 2.87. In the match against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 5th, he performed poorly, allowing 6 runs (6 earned) in 3 innings. KT’s starting pitcher is William Cuevas. 8 wins in 13 games, 78 1/3 innings, 26 runs (26 earned runs), and an average ERA of 2.99. Cuevas also allowed 4 runs (4 earned) in 3 innings against LG on the 5th. Ahead of the LG attack in the top of the 4th inning, the game was stopped for 104 minutes due to rain and was replaced to protect the players.
