SSG and NC will play the 15th match between the 2021 KBO League teams at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 20th. It is an important battle that will be a watershed in the fight for 5th place, with three teams currently tied for 5th place: SSG, NC, and Kiwoom Heroes.
On the 19th, SSG lost 4-5 to the KIA in Gwangju, losing their second consecutive defeat. Last weekend’s uptrend, which had been good with 2 wins and 1 loss against the Lotte Giants, was broken.
The NC Dinos made the ranking fight even more interesting by beating kt Wiz 4-2 on the same day. Not only did the fight for 1st place remain a mess, but the competition for 5th place also intensified.
With SSG predicting Oh Won-seok and NC foreshadowing Shin Min-hyeok as starting pitchers, a fierce batting battle is expected. Attention is also drawn to the match between Choi Jeong and Na Seong-beom, who are jointly leading the home run.
Coincidentally, Jeong Choi and Seong-beom Na shot home runs side by side in the match the previous day, continuing the race for the home run king as fierce as the fight for the quarterfinals.
Choi Jung-eun hit her 32nd home run of the season and 400 home runs in her career against KIA foreign pitcher Takahashi Bo. He continued his cruising towards the third home run king of his career.
SSG is looking forward to the part where Choi Jeong was strong against Shin Min-hyuk. Choi Jeong-eun flew 5 hits and 2 home runs in 10 at-bats against Shin Min-hyeok this season. Although the team lost the day before, we hope that he will perform another decisive performance in the home room as he continued to feel good with the achievement of a great record.
Na Seong-beom also had an exhilarating touch against KT Lee Dae-eun the day before. NC hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 7th, leading 3-2, giving him a valuable extra point. He added a home run for the first time in ten days since the 9th, maintaining a joint lead in home runs with Choi Jeong.
There is a high possibility that SSG and NC will have mixed luck depending on what kind of blows Choi Jeong and Na Seong-beom show in the match. Choi Jeong-eun batted NC with a batting average of 0.472 6 homers and 20 RBIs, and Na Seong-beom also flew with a batting average of 0.333 5 homers and 13 RBIs against SSG.
Both of them are expected to enter the plate with higher concentration than ever to catch the two rabbits of becoming the home run king and the team’s advance to fall baseball.
