However, rain began to fall in the Jamsil area in the afternoon, and the rain grew heavier and heavier as the game approached. Eventually, the game was canceled at 4:40 p.m. due to unplayable conditions. This is the 13th rainout of the season for both Lotte and LG. The two pitchers announced on the 22nd will pitch on the 23rd.
Game 11 between the NC Dinos and SSG Landers, scheduled to be played at SSG Landers Field in Incheon, was canceled at 6:05 p.m. due to ground conditions.
