“We have to stop now”
22nd, Gwangju, Kia Champions Field. These are the words of Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop after the rain cancellation against the Kia Tigers.
Rain had been falling in the Gwangju area since the morning, with a brief lull in the afternoon. The rain had almost stopped by the time the game was due to start. However, the rain soon began to fall heavily again, and the KBO’s game management committee decided to postpone the game. The game will be rescheduled at a later date.바카라사이트
It was a disappointing rainout for Doosan. Prior to this game, Doosan was on a 10-game winning streak. After taking all nine games in the first half of July, they won the first game of the second half, a 5-2 reverse against KIA in Gwangju on the 21st. With one more win on the 22nd to tie the record for most wins in a manager’s first year in Korea, Lee would have tied Jerry Royster’s KBO League record for most wins in a manager’s first year (11), which he set with the Lotte Giants in 2008.
But Lee shook his head. “Games can be won or lost,” he said. But we’ve had too much rain so far. I hope it stops now,” he said. He expressed his concern and sadness over the flooding situation in many parts of the country due to the record-breaking monsoon rains.
“I don’t know,” Lee said with a smile, “you’d have to ask the players. “I don’t know, you have to ask the players more than me,” he said with a smile, then added, “I thought it was time to win nine in a row and lose one, but I think we lost some of that momentum during the All-Star break. “You can win games, you can lose games. We had enough. I hope the players don’t get too caught up in the streak.”
