The ‘winner’ diagnosed by the coaches of both teams is getting closer, but it is not easy to escape. The war for first place is on the verge of entering.

1st place LG Twins fell into a 4-game losing streak. On the 25th, LG was defeated 1-4 against KT Wiz in Suwon. It is a record including the All-Star break, but it is the latest 4 consecutive losses since the Lotte Giants on the 9th.

They lost both games after the start of the second half. LG, who lost 4-6 against SSG Landers on the 21st, actually took a break for 3 days due to consecutive rain delays before going to KT, but suffered a complete defeat due to the silence of the other line. In particular, it is a fatal wound that he failed to break the losing streak after giving out a ‘one-two punch’. Casey Kelly came out against LG on the 21st against SSG. Adam Plutko needed more rest, and he needed an opportunity to help ‘first starter’ Kelly regain his confidence. But as Kelly recorded a five-run loss, he only reaffirmed the task to be reckoned with. In addition, Plutko was completely defeated by KT Wes Benjamin in the first appearance of the second half. Benjamin, who showed a strong side against LG, neutralized the league’s strongest LG lineup with no runs for 8 innings.

SSG also failed to capture Albert Suarez in the match against Daegu Samsung Lions on the 25th, the second game of the second half in 3 days, and lost 1-5. The pace of the 1st and 2nd place teams is both sluggish. SSG started chasing LG by 1.5 games again by winning their first matchup in the second half, but lost the chance to get closer.

LG can’t escape either. In the face-to-face confrontation at the end of June, LG succeeded in reversing to first place, but after that, SSG suffered sluggishness due to the worst pitching balance and could not escape far. I can’t help but feel anxious because I’m still in the range. Both LG and SSG have a record of 4 wins and 6 losses in the last 10 matches, with a ‘minus’ in the 50% win rate.

The coming August is also a battleground that LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop and SSG coach Kim Won-hyung are looking forward to. It is the hottest time of the year and the fatigue of the players accumulates. At the same time, it is also a time to build as many multipliers as possible with the best power. Unless a situation is created in which the team runs for first place at an unrivaled pace, it is necessary to secure multipliers as consistently as possible after August. The key is which of the two teams will get on the winning streak quickly.

While LG and SSG stagnated, Doosan Bears’ progress is also a point to pay attention to. Doosan quickly narrowed the gap with 1st place LG by running a whopping 11 consecutive wins until the 25th. As of the 25th, it is only a 4.5 game difference with LG and a 3 game difference with SSG. There is still a distance to turn around at once, but with the current flow, Doosan can join the ranks of the top three. An interesting point to watch now, with August just around the corner, is whether Doosan will be able to rebuild the top-three structure that collapsed after the Lotte Giants at the beginning of the season.
