Professional baseball, which has completed the regular season, begins fall baseball today with the wild card game between 4th place team NC and 5th place Doosan. So far,
in the wild card game, 5th place has never defeated 4th place and advanced to the semi-playoffs. I have never been on the list, but
I wonder if this formula will be followed this year as well.
Let’s take a look at the outlook together with the reporter. Reporter Kim Sang-ik!
In the wild card match, the 4th place team will start from an advantageous position, right?
Since the introduction of the wild card game in 2015, there has never been a case where the 5th place beat the 4th place and advanced to the semi-playoffs in 8 matchups. The biggest
reason is that the 4th place team starts with one win first
. 4th place NC, which starts with a win, will advance to the semi-playoffs even if it draws in the first game today.
On the other hand,
Doosan, which made it to the Korean Series for 7 consecutive years from 2015 to 2021, fell to 9th place last year and is ranked 5th this year.
I joined the fall baseball team with a stomach pull-up, but I am in a disadvantageous situation for many reasons.
The starting pitcher will be important in today’s game. 바카라사이트
NC and Doosan, both teams, won’t have an ace on the mound in today’s game?
Yes, both teams will start the wild card game without the first starters, Fedi and Alcantara.
NC Eric Fedi, who won three pitcher crowns this season, was knocked out after being hit by a hard ball to his right arm in the game against KIA on the 16th.
Fortunately, it was a simple bruise, so we are preparing for the semi-playoffs.
Doosan’s ace Alcantara appeared in the game on the 16th, so he was left out of the wild card game list and is also preparing for the first game of the semi-playoffs. Both
teams will fight fiercely for the rankings until the end of the regular season. Because we used up aces while playing
we can only see one ace out of the two in the semi-playoffs. The
starters for today’s game are left-hander Tanner for NC and Kwak Bin for Doosan.
NC Tanner joined the team as a substitute in August and played in 11 games. Doosan Kwak Bin , who returned
after winning a gold medal at the Asian Games, also helped the team join the fall baseball season with 12 wins, 7 losses and an average ERA of 2.90 in 23 games this season. Let’s hear what the two players have to say
[Tanner Turley / NC pitcher, starting game 1 of WC decision: As the game progresses, he is adapting to the external environment such as the KBO league and weather, so his velocity is increasing and he is throwing comfortably.] [Bin Kwak / Doosan pitcher, starting game 1 of WC decision:
Injury We have come back well (from the Asian Games), so if you continue to support us, we will work hard to ensure that we are in a higher place, not 5th place, so please support us.] [Anchor] Where will the outcome of today’s game be and what are the points to
It will be a relatively advantageous game for NC, which is playing in its home stadium, Changwon, with one win.
However, NC also has concerns. Park Geon-woo, the center hitter, is injured, and after much deliberation, the manager announced that he will start today.
Since the comparison between the starting pitchers in the second game loses weight, I plan to finish the game in the first game.
This is the 5th postseason matchup between NC and Doosan.
In the 2015 playoffs, Doosan won with 3 wins and 2 losses, and in the 2016 Korean Series and 2017 playoffs, Doosan also won.
However, in 2020, NC won the Korean Series with 4 wins and 2 losses, achieving a combined championship. In
2020, NC’s Yang Eui-ji, who led the championship, has now returned to Doosan. What role Yang Eui-ji will play is also a point to watch in today’s game.
Also, the moment-to-moment judgment shown by NC coach Kang In-kwon and Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop, who took charge of the first team for the first time this year
I wonder what kind of results this will bring.
