The long wait is over after the LG Twins win the Korean Series. They won against KT Wiz to claim the title, to the delight of the home crowd. Also, they capitalized on an excellent third and fifth frame to get the lead. Their pitchers shut down the Wiz. As a result, they swept the Wiz in the best-of-seven series.
According to bookie pay per head reports, Casey Kelly is the Twins’ star pitcher. He allowed just one run over five innings, securing the series victory for the Twins.
With three home runs and eight runs batted in, Twins skipper Oh Ji-hwan was voted the tournament’s Most Valuable Player. Earlier in the series, Oh set a record by becoming the first player to hit a home run in three consecutive Korean Series games.
At Jamsil Baseball Stadium in southern Seoul, the Twins got a bad start in the Korean Series by losing Game 1. After losing the first game, they came back and won the second one by a score of 5-4; they then rode that momentum to an 8-7 victory over the Wiz in Suwon on Friday and, finally, a 15-4 rout on Saturday.
LG Twins Win the Korean Series
According to baseball news reports, the club ended its second-longest championship drought in KBO history with Monday’s victory. Since their 1994 championship win, the Twins have had the second-longest championship drought in KBO history.
On Monday, while temperatures hovered around 0 degrees Celsius, 23,750 diehards braved the elements to see the game at Jamsil. This evening, celebrations are expected to flow fully across Seoul, and the LG faithful are unlikely to be deterred by tomorrow’s hectic workweek.
The Twins, formerly owned by the Korean broadcasting company MBC and known as the MBC Chungryong, are one of the five original teams in the KBO from 1982. The Twins were one of six original KBO teams, including the OB Bears (now Doosan), Haitai Tigers (now Kia), Lotte Giants, Samsung Lions, and the defunct Sammi Superstars.
Although the KBO season is over, many baseball games are still in other parts of the planet. Thus, it is never too late to learn how to open a sportsbook.
