“Now we have to stop.”
On the 22nd, Kia Champions Field in Gwangju. These are the words of Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop, who heard the news that the KIA Tigers game was canceled due to rain.카지노사이트
The rain that had fallen in the Gwangju area from this morning showed a brief lull in the afternoon. About two hours before the start of the game, the rain almost stopped. However, soon the rain began to get thicker again, and eventually the KBO match management committee decided to postpone the rain. The match will be scheduled at a later date.
For Doosan, it was only a regretful rain cancellation. Prior to this game, Doosan was on a 10-game winning streak. In July, after capturing all 9 games in the first half, they won 5-2 come-from-behind victory against KIA in Gwangju on the 21st, the first game of the second half. Coach Lee Seung-yeop, who set the record for the most consecutive wins in his first year as a domestic coach, added one more win on the 22nd to tie the record for the most consecutive wins (11 consecutive wins) set by coach Jerry Royster in his first year as a KBO league coach in 2008 with the Lotte Giants.
However, the director shook his head. He said, “The game can be won or lost. However, there has been too much rain damage in the meantime. I hope the zombies will stop now.” The record-breaking monsoon rains conveyed concerns and regrets about the flooding situation that occurred all over the country.
Regarding whether or not to challenge for an 11-game winning streak, Lee smiled and said, “I don’t know. Shouldn’t I ask the players rather than me?” He smiled and said, “I thought it was time to win 9 in a row and lose once, but I think I lost some of that energy during the All-Star break.” At the same time, he said, “The game can be won or lost. I did enough. I hope the players will not be obsessed with winning streaks.”
