With LG’s third straight loss, the mood is tense as second-place KT continues to chase. KT swept a three-game series against Lotte last weekend.

In their last 10 games, LG is 4-6, while KT is 8-2. In just eight days, the gap between LG and KT has narrowed from eight games to 4.5 games.

Notably, KT was in last place at the beginning of June, but in just two and a half months, they have risen to second place. From a -14 win-loss margin at the start of June to +15 today, the team has made a remarkable rebound. In the second half, they went 25-6 (.806 winning percentage) in 31 games. LG’s comfortable run to the top of the standings has turned into a nervous one.

After a franchise-record 11-game winning streak, they’ve slipped to sixth place.

Doosan is in the same boat. In mid-July, the team set a new franchise record with an 11-game winning streak to solidify its third-place position, but then lost five straight games. In early August, they slipped from third to fifth place. A loss to SSG on August 27 dropped them to sixth place. They lost the fifth spot to KIA.

After an 11-game winning streak, they have lost 10 of 12 and are slipping down the leaderboard. They are 2.5 games behind fourth-placed NC and 0.5 games behind fifth-placed KIA, who are also in contention for the top five.

The 1-3 starters of Alcantara, Brandon, and Kwak-Bin are stable, but the 4-5 starters are shaky and the bullpen is overloaded.
