It was not Gocheok. It was a job site.
On the 26th, Gocheok Sky Dome was filled with Lotte fans who sang cheering songs such as “Busan Seagull,” “Come back to Busan Port,” and “Boat Play,” and Gocheok Dome seemed to have become a Sajik Stadium. The number of spectators at Gocheok Dome that day was 11,692.
However, just looking at it, there were definitely a lot of fans in the third base crowd. The first and second floors of the infield were full, and the first floor of the outfield was also full. The cheers of the Lotte fans were twice as loud as the cheers of the Kiwoom crowd on the first base side.
The reason Lotte fans flocked. Of course, it is because Lotte, who is good at it, has come. The day before, they bombed local rival NC Dinos 11 to 1 in Busan and came up to Gocheok. 1st place LG Twins and 2 games behind, 2nd place SSG Landers and 3rd place only 1 game away. It’s an atmosphere where you can hit the top spot at any time as long as you have a winning streak. Of course, the fans can’t help but support us.메이저놀이터

Hong Won-ki, coach of Kiwoom, said, “There have been reports that Kim Jun-wan has a good on-base rate in the second group. The team’s batting line is experiencing a stagnation overall, so we placed Kim Jun-wan as the top hitter.” I changed it because I thought it would help the stagnant batting line to show last year’s performance by raising RBIs in the batting line,” he said.
Lotte started Dan Strayley that day. Strayley, who had good pitching with 2 runs in 6 innings against Doosan on the 9th and 2 runs in 6⅓ innings against KT Wiz on the 14th, showed sluggishness with 6 hits and 5 runs (4 earned) in 5 innings against SSG Landers on the 20th, the previous appearance.

The stealing battle between Kim Hye-seong and Lotte Battery, who are running first with 12 stolen bases, has begun. Strayley tried to check it once, but Kim Hye-seong did not take the lead wide and did not even take the action to run. But was Strayley conscious of Kim Hye-sung stealing bases?
