The Lotte Giants defeated the leading KT Wiz with the performance of starter Park Se-woong, who maintained concentration despite the heavy rain.
On the afternoon of the 23rd, the KBO League match, which was scheduled to be held at four stadiums across the country, was canceled due to rain.
Lotte won the 7th rain cold game 6-2 over KT thanks to the performances of starter Park Se-woong, who played 6 innings without a score, and catcher Ahn Jung-yeol, who hit the first home run of the season.
Park Se-woong picked out five strikeouts over six innings and threw three hits and no runs, harvesting five wins (six losses) in the season.
Lotte took the first two points with just-in-time hits from Son Ah-seop and Ahn Chi-hong in the bottom of the first inning. At the end of the 2nd inning, Ahn Jung-yeol drew the first solo arch of the season.
Lotte, who took the lead in the early stages, added one more point with Dae-ho Lee’s infield ground ball in the scoring opportunity at the end of the second inning, leading the team 4-0.
Ahn Jung-yeol added a RBI by hitting a double in the third inning, while Ahn Chi-hong hit a single and double in the fourth inning.
KT made up for two points in the 7th inning, which Park Se-woong went down from the mound, but a cold game was declared due to rain and no more chances were obtained.
KT starter Despaine recorded 6 runs (5 earned) in 3⅓ innings and became the losing pitcher. At the bottom of the 4th inning, he was substituted after the game was suspended once due to rain.
