The Hanwha Eagles have finally accumulated a win after a close game in 3 consecutive games.
Hanwha won 2-1 after a close match against the Lotte Giants of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 17th, going to the 10th inning. Hanwha escaped from two consecutive losses and recorded a season record of 13 wins, 21 losses and 2 draws.
The fatigue of the team must have been high. Hanwha moved heavy steps to Daejeon after drawing 3-3 at the end of the 12th overtime against Incheon SSG Landers on the 14th. The energy of extension continued to Daejeon. Hanwha had to swallow regret as they lost 1-3 at Daejeon Lotte on the 16th after a close match that went to the 10th inning.
The tight battle with Lotte continued on this day. Lotte starting pitcher Na Kyun-ahn and Hanwha starting pitcher Ricardo Sanchez had a pitching battle. Na Kyun-an gave up 95 pitches, 4 hits, 1 walk, 8 strikeouts and 1 run in 6⅓ innings, and Sanchez recorded 71 pitches, 3 hits, 1 shot, 3 strikeouts and 1 run in 5 innings, and withdrew without a win or loss.
Sanchez lost the first point to Lotte. In the top of the 2nd inning, lead hitter Ahn Chi-hong was sent out with a right-handed hit. In the ensuing 1 out 1 base, Yoo Kang-nam allowed a timely double in left mid-wall, making it 0-1.
The Hanwha batting line immediately launched a counterattack. After one out in the bottom of the second inning, Lee Jin-young’s walk and Choi Jae-hoon’s left-handed hit opened the way. When O’Grady reached base with a grounder from first baseman, it became 2 out, 1st and 3rd base, and Park Jeong-hyun struck a 토스카지노 right-handed hit at the right time to balance the game 1-1.
It was quiet after both teams scored one point each. From the 3rd to the 9th, only 0 was written on the electronic board, and Hanwha had to play 3 consecutive games in overtime. Because Sanchez went down the mound early due to the limit on the number of pitchers with 70 pitches, starting from the 6th inning, Woo-ram Jung (1 inning) – Seo-Hyun Kim (1 inning) – Beom-Soo Kim (1 inning) – Seung-Joo Han (1 inning) – Dae-Kyung Yoon (1 inning) were all-out in the bullpen. It seemed that the internal wounds would be deep if he gave up even this game.
The Hanwha line-up attacked Koo Seung-min at the end of the 10th inning and eventually seized the victory. After two outs, Jeong Eun-won went on base with a right-handed hit, laying the foundation for a thrilling ending victory. Noh Si-hwan got a walk and connected to 2nd, 1st and 2nd base, and Chae Eun-seong gave the team victory with a finishing hit in front of center fielder. Hanwha players were able to laugh and enjoy the joy of victory.
