Big match made by the weather…Korea’s left-hander, Living Legend rematch! The 8th is Kwang Hyunjong The B. The result is…
In Incheon, left-hander Living Legends of the Korean professional baseball league will have a rematch in Incheon. It’s a big match made by Rain.
The ninth showdown of the season between the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League SSG Landers and the KIA Tigers, which was scheduled to be held at 6:30 p.m. on the 4th, was canceled due to rain.
SSG Landersfield was under the influence of the rainy season front, and heavy rain poured throughout the afternoon. According to the Korea 메이저사이트 주소 Meteorological Administration, the rain forecast was issued until the morning of the 5th in Munhak-dong, Michuhol-gu, Incheon, where the stadium is located. As a result, the cancellation was decided early around 4:30 p.m., two hours before the start of the game.
Both SSG and KIA, which have one foreign pitcher missing side by side, are not bad cancellations. Initially, SSG was scheduled to be Park Jong-hoon, Lee Kun-wook, and Kim Kwang-hyun at the Incheon game during the week, while KIA was scheduled to be Yoon Young-chul, Yang Hyun-jong, and alternative starters. However, as the game was canceled on the 4th, a new rotation was set up with SSG Park Jong-hoon on the 5th, Kim Kwang-hyun on the 6th, KIA Yoon Young-chul on the 5th, and Yang Hyun-jong on the 6th. A return match between Kim Kwang-hyun and Yang Hyun-jong took place on the 6th. Lee Kun-wook, who was scheduled to start on the 5th, will take the mound against Hanwha in Daejeon this weekend.
The two players representing the KBO League faced off in Gwangju on May 9 for the first time in eight years since September 2015. At that time, Yang Hyun-jong became the winning pitcher with six hits, one walk, and 10 strikeouts in eight innings, winning his friend Kim Kwang-hyun, who allowed only six hits (one home run), two walks, and six strikeouts and three runs in six innings.
Despite the victory at the time, Yang Hyun-jong said, “I don’t think we’ll meet anymore even if we continue to play the rotation. It would be burdensome for me and Kwanghyun to meet each other. I hope we don’t play games like this anymore. “I hope there will be only good results for each other to win and Kwang-hyun to win,” he said, showing a nuance of reluctance to face each other. But the weather has made a return match inevitable.
This is the eighth time that “Gwang Hyun-jong” has faced off. The two players made their professional debut side by side in 2007 and met a total of seven times, with Kim Kwang-hyun recording two wins and four losses and Yang Hyun-jong recording three wins and two losses.
