By Yoo Jun-sang (Xinhua Sports News) The Samsung Lions and Hanwha Eagles have been rained out for the second consecutive day.
The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) announced on Thursday that the 13th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League between Samsung and Hanwha, scheduled to be held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Eagles Park, has been canceled due to rain. This is the 11th rainout for Samsung and the 15th for Hanwha.
Samsung and Hanwha were scheduled to start Taylor Widener, Moon Dong-ju, and “hard-throwing pitchers” instead of Baek Jeong-hyun and Han Seung-joo, who were expected to start on the 23rd. Samsung was looking for a three-game winning streak and a sweep, while Hanwha, desperate to snap a three-game losing streak, was pinning its hopes on Moon.
However, the game was canceled due to rain, leaving both teams to look forward to the following. The games scheduled for the 23rd and 24th will be rescheduled at a later date.
Meanwhile, the Jamsil game between the Lotte Giants and LG Twins and the game between the NC Dinos and SSG Landers, which was canceled due to rain for the second consecutive day, are proceeding as normal.안전놀이터

The Suwon game between the KIA Tigers and KT Wiz, which took a day off due to rain after their game on the 22nd, also started as normal, with the score tied at 0-0 in the fifth inning. At the Gocheok Sky Dome, the only other venue unaffected by the rain, Doosan Bears and Kiwoom Heroes played on both the 22nd and 23rd, with Kiwoom leading 3-2 after two innings.
