‘Suddenly pouring rain’ Jamsil Doosan-KT game will still be held… If canceled, it will be the first monthly game of the season

It is suddenly raining at Jamsil Stadium during a heat wave. If the game is rained out, it will be the first Monday game of the season.

The Doosan Bears and KT Wiz are set to meet for the 12th time in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League season at 5 p.m. on June 6 at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul.

The rain started around 1:30 p.m., and while the home team’s players continued their pregame training in light rain, the rain gradually became heavier around 2 p.m., forcing Doosan players to stop training and retreat to the clubhouse. Currently, the grounds crew has only covered the mound with a tarp in a hurry. The skies are clear, but the rain continues.

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, as of 2pm, Jamsil-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul, where Jamsil Stadium is located, is forecast to rain until 6pm. Given that kickoff is at 5pm, we can’t rule out a rainout if the forecast holds true. However, the forecast is changing by the minute, so we’ll have to wait and see.

If the game is canceled, it will be rescheduled for Monday, July 7. “Due to the increasing number of rainouts in the 2023 KBO League, if a game is canceled on a Saturday or Sunday between August 5 and September 10, it will be rescheduled for the following Monday at 18:30,” the KBO announced last month.

Doosan is in third place with 47 wins, one draw and 43 losses on the season, while KT is in fifth place with 48 wins, two draws and 44 losses. Both teams have a win-loss record of zero, and their head-to-head record is five wins, one draw and five losses.

Doosan is expected to start homegrown ace Kwak Bin for the three-game weekend series. His season record is 9-3 with a 2.34 ERA in 14 games, and he picked up the win in his last start against Hanwha on April 1, striking out 10 in seven innings. He has also pitched against KT this year, picking up a win on April 21 with five innings of one-run ball. He will try to reach 10 wins in his debut.메이저놀이터

KT will also counter with homegrown ace Ko Young-pyo. His season record is 9-5 with a 2.50 ERA in 19 games, with his most recent start coming on April 1 against SSG in Suwon, where he tossed eight shutout innings. He’s had nine consecutive quality starts and four consecutive quality starts plus. The only no-decision for Doosan this year came on April 23, when he threw seven innings of one-run ball at home.
