‘Last year’s KS showdown’ SSG and Kiwoom end the season in vain

‘Defending champion’ SSG Landers failed to achieve a single win in the semi-playoffs (quasi-PO) and was eliminated at the speed of light.

SSG lost 6-7 in the 3rd semi-PO game against NC Dinos held at Changwon NC Park on the 25th. SSG, who had been pushed to the brink by losing the first and second games at home, was unable to turn the game around on the road and ended the season with three consecutive losses.

SSG’s three-game losing streak is somewhat shocking.

SSG, which achieved the KBO League’s first ‘Wire-to-Wire Championship’ by never falling from the lead from the opening game of the regular season to the end of last year’s regular season, aimed to win the Korean Series for the second consecutive year.

Until early June, it seemed like they were cruising toward winning the championship for the second year in a row, forming the top three with LG and Lotte. However, due to a slump at the end of the season, they ended up finishing the regular season in 3rd place.

It was expected that they would face difficulties in advancing to the Korean Series for the second year in a row, but no one expected that they would suffer their third straight loss without winning a single game against NC, which had been playing since the wild card game without the league’s best ace, Eric Peddy.

As a result, SSG and Kiwoom, who had great matches in last season’s Korean Series, both ended this season in vain.

Kiwoom was in last place this season and could not even play in the fall baseball league. Kiwoom, which had a great match with SSG in last year’s Korean Series, also left a shocking record of being last despite being evaluated as a strong candidate for the championship this season.

In a 10-team system, Kiwoom is the first team to reach the Korean Series in the previous season and finish in last place the following year.

Kiwoom had a strong desire to win because its main hitter, Lee Jeong-hoo, announced early on that he would advance to the major leagues at the end of this season. Since they have the league’s best ace, Ahn Woo-jin, expectations were high that they would at least make it to the fall baseball stage.

However, after Lee Jeong-hoo was injured last July, the team’s performance began to plummet. In addition, it seemed like they were essentially giving up on this season by giving up native starter Choi Won-tae through a trade with LG, and in early September, even Ahn Woo-jin was out for the season due to injury, ultimately suffering the humiliation of last place.
