Kiwoom Heroes is collapsing helplessly. There is no ‘hero’ to break the losing streak.

Kiwoom lost 2-4 in the 10th game of the season against the NC Dinos of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Changwon NC Park on the 4th. It’s already 6 losses in a row. It was ranked 6th a month ago, but is down to 9th.

It is the lowest risk of falling. The 10th place Samsung Lions won 5-4 against the leader LG Twins on the 4th. Samsung and Kiwoom are one game behind. Depending on the weekend results, the rankings may be overturned.

Kiwoom doesn’t see anyone who can break his losing streak. So it can be regrettable that Choi Won-tae was given to LG through a trade. While Lee Jung-hoo was injured, he thought of a trade to make up for the vacancy, but Choi Won-tae, who played the role of a ‘local one-two punch’ with An Woo-jin, except for foreign pitchers, has a big gap.

In addition, Choi Won-tae was very strong against LG, but Kiwoom suffered a sweep loss in the Jamsil LG expedition from the 1st to the 3rd. Choi Won-tae became the winning pitcher in all three games against LG before leaving with a trade. His earned run average is just 0.95. This is why his void is felt so large.

It has already become irreversible, but the only prospect is that Kiwoom’s future will not be smooth. Lee Jung-hoo, the core of the offense, has left due to injury, and the starting lineup lacks reliable cards.

Of course, Lee Joo-hyung, who brought Choi Won-tae instead, is doing a good job. Lee Joo-hyung has been recording 6 hits in a row after wearing a Kiwoom uniform after the trade. He boasts a good hitting feeling with 8 hits in 6 games. Even so, the part that gave up one good starting pitcher is bound to be highlighted during the long losing streak.

He said that a strong team can only be formed when the starting lineup is solid. All of the top teams have relatively stable starters. Kiwoom fell into a losing streak after the trade. On the other hand, it has become like giving wings to LG, which is on the rise.메이저놀이터

Kiwoom seeks to escape from a losing streak on the 5th. The starting pitcher is Jang Jae-young. In the game on the 4th, Jeong Chan-heon blocked it with 3 runs in 6 innings, but could not break the losing streak.

Jang Jae-young’s shoulders are heavy. Jang Jae-young is going back and forth between selection and salvation. In the match against Hanwha on the 25th of last month, he failed to win with 3 runs in 5 innings, but showed potential. However, in the match against Samsung on the 30th, he had the worst pitch with 6 runs in ⅔ innings.

After that, he went back to the middle relief. It was against LG on the 1st and 2nd. It remains to be seen whether Jang Jae-young, who got another chance to start, will be able to break the chain of losing streak for the team that was in danger of falling to the bottom.
