A doubleheader between the Hanwha Eagles and KT Wiz at the Daejeon Baseball Stadium on Sunday. The game started at 2pm and ended at 11:26pm. In the fifth inning of the second game, the game was stopped due to a sudden downpour. The tarp was not able to cover the field properly due to the sudden downpour. It took a whopping 3 hours and 24 minutes for the rain to stop and the field to be cleared. It was the longest suspension in history. The game resumed at 9:57 p.m.
The previous record also came from the Daejeon-Hanwha game.
On July 23, last year, rain poured down on KT in the top of the eighth inning. With KT leading 5-3, the game was suspended and resumed one hour and 56 minutes later. However, it rained again shortly after the start of the game and a rainout was declared.토토사이트
On the first day of the nine-game series, the odds were starkly split between the two teams. KT took both games and won three in a row.
How did the managers of both teams spend their time during the hiatus?
“We discussed the pitching staff inside,” said Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho. It’s a tough road trip with nine games in eight days. There are a lot of concerns about the starting rotation and bullpen management. From Hanwha’s perspective, it would have been nice to have a no-game.
“I watched the LG Twins and SSG Landers game (a doubleheader) on TV, and we were still working on the field when the second game was over,” Lee said. “I watched the doubleheader with trepidation,” Lee said, “because it featured a foreign ‘one-two punch’. It was a must-win game. Lee got his wish.
