KIA and NC’s progress, which seemed easy, → collective frustration of Lotte, Hanwha and Samsung… SSG’s ‘once first’ Maginot Line of 5th place, Doosan’s only hope, the gap between top and bottom has widened

There is a reason why it is difficult for lower-ranked teams to advance to the top 5 in the second half of the season.

This is because there are many variables that need to be controlled. This is not a problem that can be solved by just having your own team do well or by taking 5th place.

There is a possibility that the teams sandwiched between 5th place and the team in question must perform poorly all at once.

It would be worst if the target 5th place team moves up further.

This is because the 3rd and 4th place teams, who had a larger game gap to begin with, will be moved down to 5th place. That means the distance from 5th place gets further away.

That’s exactly the situation right now.

NC and KIA, who were competing for 4th and 5th place, both rose to 8 wins and 2 losses in the last 10 games, moving up to 3rd and 4th place.

Instead, SSG, the absolute top two, which had been competing with LG for 1st and 2nd place throughout the first half of the year, slipped down to 5th place due to its recent slump.

Lower-ranked teams such as Lotte, Hanwha, and Samsung dreamed of a miraculous entry into the semifinals at the end of the season.

The team I didn’t even think about catching in the first place was SSG. The team was leading until June 25th.토토사이트

On June 25th, just before the turning point of the season, leader SSG was far behind by 9 games behind 4th place Lotte, 14 games behind 9th place Hanwha, and 16 games behind 10th place Samsung.

It was a huge distance now, but the ride has been reduced a bit, but it’s still a long distance. Since that team falls to 5th place and becomes the target, the lower ranked teams will have to give up their dreams of the final fall somewhat early.

As of the 11th, 7th place Lotte is 8 games behind 5th place SSG, 9 games behind Hanwha, and 13 games behind Samsung.

Although it has decreased slightly compared to the number of rides taken on June 25, when SSG was first, it is still a figure that is close to impossible to keep up with.

The Doosan Bears, who are chasing 5th place SSG by 3 games, are the only team among the bottom 5 teams with any hope of playing fall baseball.

KT’s great leap forward in July and August, which was once in last place in the first half of the year, and NC KIA’s recent rapid improvement in pitching have created a big river that cannot be crossed between the top and bottom teams.

Three teams with 23 to 25 games left in the season. The time has come for the unwelcome modifier ‘red pepper powder’ to be applied to Samsung, Hanwha, and Lotte, following Kiwoom, which ranked last.
