Will the LG Twins finally win the presidency? The magic number to win for the first time in 29 years is 10. Even if they achieve a .500 win rate in the remaining 16 games, they will be quite close to winning.
The LG Twins are in first place in the pennant race with 78 wins, 48 losses, and 2 draws this season. With 128 games played this season (as of the 25th), there are now 16 games remaining.안전놀이터
LG is continuing its upward trend until the end of the season, posting 8 wins and 2 losses in the last 10 games. Last week, LG also achieved good results with 4 wins and 1 loss. On the mound, Casey Kelly, Lim Chan-gyu, and Choi Won-tae performed well and led the team to victory. In the batting lineup, Austin, Moon Bo-kyung, and Hong Chang-ki played a big role and contributed to the team.
Assuming that LG achieves a .500 win rate in the remaining games, the winning rate would be 0.6056 with 86 wins, 54 losses, and 2 draws. Currently, KT is holding second place. KT has 73 wins, 56 losses, and 3 draws, with a winning percentage of 0.566 and only 12 games left. Assuming that KT wins the remaining games, the winning percentage would be 0.6028 with 85 wins, 56 losses, and 3 draws. Therefore, LG’s victory is confirmed as long as it has a .500 win rate in the remaining games.
Currently, LG’s magic number is 10. This means that if they win 10 games out of the remaining 16 games, the championship will be confirmed regardless of the results of other teams.
LG will play a two-game series against KT Wiz at Jamsil Stadium on the 26th and 27th. If LG wins two games in a row against KT, they will actually get closer to advancing directly to the Korean Series. Also, it is true that LG still has a very advantageous position in the competition for the championship, even if it only gets 1 win and 1 loss. On the other hand, if KT falls into a two-game losing streak, it is expected that KT will have a slim hope of winning again.
However, KT is focusing more on maintaining second place rather than first place. KT coach Lee Kang-cheol, the head coach, also said, “Once we win, we have to watch the results of other teams. We will focus more on maintaining second place.” KT has three games remaining against LG and four games against KIA this season.
For LG, Kim Yun-sik will start. Kim Yun-sik has 5 wins, 4 losses, and an average ERA of 4.52 this season. He was shaken against KT this season with 11 hits (2 home runs), 3 walks, 2 strikeouts, 7 runs (7 earned), and an ERA of 15.75 in 4 innings in 2 games against KT.
In response, KT’s Bae Je-Seong starts the mound. Bae Seong-seong has 8 wins, 8 losses, and an average ERA of 4.22 this season. Against LG, he participated in one game and pitched three innings without a win or loss, allowing two hits and no runs.
Following a two-game series against KT this week, LG will play a home game against Samsung and then play a three-game road game against Doosan on the weekend. If we receive a good report card in the six-game series this week, we can get closer to the magic number for winning.
