Now looks like third place Kium’s ‘pepper squad’ emerges
The Kia Tigers have their sights set on higher ground, having jumped to fourth place with a recent eight-game winning streak.
KIA has won its last eight games in a row, including a four-game sweep last week (Aug. 29-Sept. 3).
KIA (56 wins, 2 draws, 50 losses), 카지노사이트 which was in sixth place until last month 26th, leapfrogged the Doosan Bears (55 wins, 1 draw, 54 losses) to fifth place and then knocked the NC Dinos (57 wins, 2 draws, 51 losses) down to fourth. Only 1.5 games separate KIA from third-place SSG Landers (60 wins, 1 draw, 51 losses).
KIA has the potential to make a big jump to the top of the standings, as they have a good batting lineup and team chemistry.
In particular, Na Sung-beom and Park Chan-ho are leading the hot bats, while ace Yang Hyun-jong has been the centerpiece of the starting lineup as he has been pitching well lately.
KIA will play a three-game series against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium starting on April 5, and then play four games in Gwangju starting on April 8, 온라인카지노 including a doubleheader against the LG Twins.
KIA has been weak against Dusan this year, going 3-7, and strong against LG, going 5-5.
Kiwoom, who are unlikely to make the postseason, went 4-1 last week. The team has been playing the role of a “pepper squad” (a lower-ranked team that prevents a higher-ranked team from winning).
In particular, Kiwoom won all three games against second-place KT Wiz last week, halting their opponent’s momentum.
KT failed to overtake the first-place LG Twins as they were held back by Kiwoom. Losing back-to-back games to a lower-ranked team late in the season can be devastating for a top team in a tight race.
Kiwoom’s Kim Hye-seong and Ronnie Dawson lead the batting lineup, while Ahn Woo-jin and Ariel Furado lead the pitching staff. Their focus, especially in tight situations, has made them a force to be reckoned with for the top teams.
Kiwoom will play a three-game series against the NC Dinos, who have dropped to fifth place, before facing the last-place Hanwha Eagles on the weekend.
First-place LG and second-place KT will go head-to-head at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on May 5.
LG and KT are 5-5 against each other this year, so the three-game series is expected to be a battle.
LG will start Won-tae Choi on the mound on the 5th, looking for a win. With ace Adam Plutko out for an extended period of time with a pelvic injury, the roles of Choi, Kelly, and Lim Chan-kyu will be crucial.
KT will try to snap a five-game losing streak against LG with William Cuevas, 카지노사이트존 who won his last five starts in August.
KT is in a severe batting slump and needs to regain its hitting touch.
