All the requirements for box office success have been met. Sajik in May is ready to flare up with a battle for first place.
Lotte and SSG will play three consecutive matches at Sajik Stadium in Busan from the 19th to the 21st. The fight between distribution rivals is now unfolding as a meaningful battle for first place.
SSG,메이저사이트 who won the wire-to-wire championship last year, boasts solid power and is ranked first this season as well. It is a record of 24 wins, 13 losses and 1 draw in 38 games, with a win rate of .649. But this year, there was also a time when they fell from the top spot. The team that brought down the mighty SSG was Lotte. Lotte is in second place, one game behind with 21 wins and 12 losses in 33 games and a winning rate of .636. As the uptrend in April continued unbroken, the opportunity to liquidate the recent low-ranking move has arrived.
The last 10 games have been similar. SSG has 6 wins, 3 losses and 1 draw, and Lotte has 6 wins and 4 losses. It is predicting a fierce battle for first place in similar situations and circumstances. If SSG wins in the game on the 19th, they will of course defend the 1st place, and if Lotte wins, they will regain 1st place. The possibility of a high-altitude battle that could change the ranking of each game cannot be ruled out.
The SSG selection is Park Jong-hoon, and the Lotte selection is Park Se-woong. The current rankings and grades are similar. He has to play the role of a native ace, but he is still not living up to expectations.
Park Jong-hoon is recording an average ERA of 4.64 (17 ERA in 33 innings) with 1 win and 3 losses in 6 games. Quality start 3 times. On the 6th, he recorded his first win of the season with 7 innings and 1 run against Kiwoom, but on the 12th he lost 4 runs (3 earned runs) in 5 innings against Hanwha against Hanwha. In the aftermath of 8 runs in 3 innings against Samsung on April 13, the average ERA is high.
Park Se-woong is recording an average ERA of 4.66 (15 ERA in 29 innings) without a win in 6 games. Park Se-woong has yet to report his first win of the season. And he has yet to record a single quality start. However, he recorded 5 hits, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 5 innings against KT on the 12th. To the extent that this game was Park Se-woong’s best pitching of the season, he has yet to find his own trajectory.

Both teams are ready to fight for first place. SSG took a day off and moved to Busan early as the Changwon NC game on the 18th was canceled due to rain. Enough power was secured for all-out war. Lotte also fought 10 times overtime in two matches against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 16th and 17th, and recorded 1 win and 1 loss, but on the 18th, against Hanwha, it won 7-3. Starter Hyun-Hee Han’s 6 scoreless innings and a solo shot by Min-Seok Kim and Jin-Hyuk Noh secured the lead, and the game was finished without a sortie by Pil Seung-jo. All of the winning teams can climb.
The expected starting matchups after that are SSG Kim Gwang-hyun-Lotte Strayley on the 20th and Kirk McCarty-Lotte Charlie Barnes on the 21st. Even the aces are prepared for a real sword fight.
The derby match of distribution rivals overlapped with the fight for first place. And with the addition of Lotte’s event, all the plates of the great box office were laid. And Lotte will hold this three-game series as the ‘Busan Series’. In all three matches, Lotte wears a ‘camellia uniform’ with the motif of camellia, the city of Busan. It started as a fan love festival in 2017 and has become a representative event of Lotte. In particular, on the 20th, it will be held as a ‘Busan Festival with Cloud’, and all spectators entering the stadium will be provided with inexpensive camellia uniforms (M/XL) on a first-come, first-served basis to dye the stadium red (if a certain size is exhausted, only the remaining size can be received) .
The game on the 20th opened the ticket window early on the 9th, and 22,990 seats were sold out early. As Lotte continues to rise, fans are also constantly looking for baseball fields. On the 19th and 21st, Gyeonggi-do expects close to 10,000 spectators to attend. About 17,000 seats have already been reserved for the match on the 19th, and about 20,000 seats have already been sold on the 21st. There is a high possibility that all 3 matches will be sold out.
What kind of results will be made in the battle for first place among distribution rivals? All eyes are on her resignation this weekend.
