The crisis of ‘Lion’ and ‘Giant’ is accelerating.

The Samsung Lions and Lotte Giants lost side by side in the KT Wiz and SSG Landers away matches held on the 17th. Samsung (25-36), who suffered 5 consecutive losses, was in 9th place, 0.5 game ahead of the lowest-ranking Hanwha Eagles, and Lotte (31-28), who suffered 4 consecutive losses, was chased by the 5th place Doosan Bears by one game.메이저놀이터

Both teams are heading towards their worst performance in June. Samsung ranked ninth with a monthly record of 5 wins and 10 losses (0.333 win rate), and Lotte was last with 4 wins and 11 losses (0.267). As they fell into a losing streak, Samsung was competing for the top 5, and Lotte was far from competing for the lead. In particular, the fall of Lotte, who took the lead in 3949 days after playing more than 10 games in the season and ran to 9 consecutive victories in 15 years, is dramatic.

The defeat on the 17th was a shock. Samsung led 3-1 until the beginning of the 7th inning, raising hopes of escaping the losing streak. However, the mound collapsed at the end of the 7th inning and the game was overturned with 5 runs and 3-6. In the beginning of the ninth inning, he managed to catch up with two points, but knelt down with the final 5-6. Samsung expressed dissatisfaction the day before that veteran closer Oh Seung-hwan picked up his glove from the dugout after changing pitchers. As much as the atmosphere inside and outside the team was not good, the bad news that made it worse and extended the losing streak was overlapped.

Lotte was similar to Samsung. Against SSG, they maintained a 5-1 lead until the beginning of the 8th inning. However, only at the end of the 8th inning, 7 runs were allowed and the mound was destroyed. Starter Park Se-woong gave up 3 hits and 1 run in 7 innings, but the bullpen could not hold out. In the 8th inning only, Lotte had Kim Jin-wook (0 innings, 2 hits, 3 runs), Koo Seung-min (2/3 innings, 2 runs, 2 runs), Kim Won-joong (0 innings, 2 hits, 2 runs, 2 runs), Kim Sang-soo (1/3 innings, no runs). After putting in people, I managed to fill 3 outcounts.

The result is the result, but the process was not good either. Lotte and Samsung are shaking up the professional baseball rankings as much as the length of their losing streak. The two teams in crisis announced Choi Chae-heung (VS Eom Sang-baek) and Barnes (VS Elias) as starting pitchers on the 18th.
