Pajuk’s 9th straight win. It’s been 10 years since 2013.
KIA extended its winning streak to nine games with a 7-1 victory over Doosan on June 6 at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul behind a no-hitter by starter Thomas Pannoni, who pounded out 13 hits.
The nine-game winning streak dated back to June 8, 2013 against Mokdong Nexen (now Kiwoom) and June 20 against the Daejeon Hanwha Eagles. It was the first time in 3730 days. The team also came close to the club’s record of 12 consecutive wins, which was set twice during the Haetae era.
They also secured a spot in the top five. 57 wins, 2 draws, 50 losses, +7 games. They are in fifth place, but only half a game behind fourth-place NC and one game behind third-place SSG. Even second-place KT is within striking distance with three games in hand. Conversely, the team below them, #6 Doosan, is four games out of reach. Second-place KT is closer than sixth-place Doosan.스포츠토토

It’s no longer about making it to the fall baseball season. The KIA Tigers are in a turbulent period, shaking up the top of the standings.
The Tigers, who were trying to secure a winning series against second-place KT to consolidate their lead, suffered an upset loss on the 6th when Go Woo-seok failed to protect a three-run lead in the ninth inning and ended up losing 3-4. 5.5 games behind KT. It’s not time to rest on our laurels just yet.
The remaining schedule and Asian Games variables will become more important as the gap between second and fifth place tightens.
KIA has 35 games remaining, the most of any of the 10 teams.
The remaining schedule is tight. To make matters worse, starting pitcher Lee Yi-ri, bullpener Choi Ji-min, and first baseman/outfielder Choi Won-jun will be called up to the national team on June 22. Compared to other teams, they have a lot of bats.
On top of that, KIA has a lot of games left against top teams.
They have six games against first-place LG, seven games against second-place KT, three games against third-place SSG, and six games against fourth-place NC. It’s a tough schedule, but a crisis can be an opportunity. If they can get results against the top teams, they can soar to even greater heights.

Baseball defies all pretentious predictions. Kia’s future is also difficult to predict.
It’s not just the defense that’s driving Kia’s rise, but also the batting lineup. After Na Sung-beom and Kim Do-young returned from injury, the balance of the top and bottom of the lineup is near perfect. Even if the mound is a little shaky, the batting lineup can make up for it and win the game. This is the secret to their winning streak. Kim Do-young’s absence from the national team is unfortunate for her, but a big boost for the team’s batting lineup.
The team relies heavily on their batting lineup, which is known as “unreliable,” but they don’t show any signs of slowing down. Managing the after-effects after the winning streak will be a factor.
KIA’s great leap forward shakes up the top tier. How far will they go?
At the very least, the current top ranking order is looking increasingly likely to be shuffled.
