“I thought I was going to watch the game in peace…”
The game between the KIA Tigers and LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju on August 8 was declared a rainout during KIA’s offense in the bottom of the second inning.
It was an unfortunate rain delay for LG. LG took advantage of KIA starter Yang Hyun-jong in the first inning. They scored two runs on consecutive hits by Hong Chang-ki, Moon Sung-joo, Kim Hyun-soo, and Austin. With runners on first and second, Moon Bo-kyung singled, Park Dong-won hit a sacrifice fly, and Park Hae-min singled to score five runs.
In the second inning, the LG bats came out swinging. With the bases loaded, Hong Chang-ki reached on a throwing error by first baseman Choi Won-jun. Moon Sung-joo and Kim Hyun-soo followed with back-to-back RBI singles. With two runners on and two outs, Oh Ji-hwan singled to center field to extend the lead to 8-0.
However, in the bottom of the second inning, the rain started pouring down and the game was suspended. For nearly an hour, we waited for the rain to stop, but the raindrops only thickened and thinned. Eventually, a rainout was declared.
Before the game, LG manager Yoon Kyung-yeop said, “I don’t think we can do anything against KIA this season. We have a losing record against them,” he said. This season, LG has a 4-5 record against KIA. KIA is the only team that LG is losing against.
“I thought the game was over when we added three runs in the second inning. For the first time in 94 games, I thought I would be able to watch baseball comfortably, but the game was over.” “It was the first time we scored five runs in the first inning and the first time we lost eight runs in the second inning,” he said.
Meanwhile, LG’s lineup is Hong Chang-ki (right fielder), Moon Sung-joo (left fielder), Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter), Austin Dean (first baseman), Oh Ji-hwan (shortstop), Moon Bo-kyung (third baseman), Park Dong-won (catcher), Kim Min-sung (second baseman), and Park Hae-min (center fielder).
