The Suwon series during the week couldn’t finish a game properly due to the changeable raindrops. It was two teams that felt like they were in vain.

The final match between kt and KIA held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 6th was finally declared a no game due to rain that began to fall from the start of the game.

Before the end of the second inning, which was tied 0-0, the 안전놀이터referees stopped the game, covered the infield with a tarp, and waited for the rain to stop. However, the rain did not stop, and in the end it was declared a no game. Even after 8pm on the radar, there were still rain clouds, so it was not easy to wait.

For KIA, Park Chan-ho’s first hit and Lee Chang-jin’s Han Seung-taek’s walk in the second inning disappeared. In kt, the two scoreless innings pitched by Bo Schulser, who had his KBO League debut match on this day, also did not remain on the record, and the debut match will be played again later.

On the 4th, a no game was declared in the 4th inning, with KIA leading 3-1. It rained from the start of the game, and in the end, the game did not continue until the 5th inning, which is a requirement for an official game. Regarding this, kt coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “The game should have been stopped after we scored (3 times),” and KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said, “I didn’t know what would happen because it was 2 points and the game was early.” It was a cancellation without major complaints from both teams.

On the 5th, it rained before the game started, so the game could not start at all, and it was decided to cancel it early. On the 6th, there was a possibility of a normal game as it did not rain before the game, but in the end, the rain that began to fall around the start of the game blocked the two teams.

As a result, it was canceled due to rain for 3 days in a row, but both teams consumed power because each of the two starting pitchers was exhausted. In a situation where drought continues nationwide, the rain itself was a welcome thing for the country, but it was a 3-game series in Suwon that confirmed that baseball and rain do not go well anyway.

KIA will bring Doosan home from the 7th and have three home opening games. KIA plans to face Doosan with Shawn Anderson, Lee Eui-ri, and Adonis Medina in turn. kt will move to Busan on the 7th and play three consecutive matches with Lotte.
