Hanwha plunged Kiwoom into a swamp of seven consecutive losses thanks to the firepower of the batters and continued its upward trend.
The Hanwha Eagles gradually won a thrilling 9-8 victory over the Kiwoom Heroes in the 2023 KBO League at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul on the 10th.
As a result, Hanwha, ranked eighth with six consecutive wins, reached 50 wins (6 draws and 62 losses). On the other hand, Kiwoom, which lost seven consecutive games, will take on its 77th loss (51 wins and three draws).
Kiwoom took the first run. At the bottom of the first inning, leadoff hitter Kim Hye-sung opened the door with a right-handed hit. Dawson then turned to a fly to left field, but Kim Hye-sung’s steal to second base made the situation one out and second base. Here, Lee Joo-hyung hit an infield hit that flowed sideways after hitting the first baseman, and Kim Hye-sung dug into the home plate while Hanwha second baseman Moon Hyun-bin’s home throw, which caught the ball, missed.
Hanwha wasn’t just watching either. He turned the game around at once, making the top of the third inning a big inning. When Choi Jae-hoon and Jang Jin-hyuk opened the door with consecutive doubles, Moon Hyun-bin drew a reversal three-point arch with a 120m distance over the right fence. Moon Hyun Bin’s fourth gun of the season. 토토사이트
The firepower of Hanwha’s batting lineup, which was once on fire, did not cool down. Williams hit a timely RBI with two outs and runners on first and third bases, connected by Oh Sun-jin’s right fielder fly, Noh Si-hwan’s walk, Chae Eun-sung’s walk, and Choi In-ho’s right fielder fly. Choi Jae-hoon got a walk-off walk with two outs and a full base that continued with Jung Eun-won’s walk. 5-1.
Kiwoom, who was hit by a blow, started the chase in the bottom of the third inning. Lim Ji-yeol hit a timely RBI in the first and second bases with two outs made by Kim Si-ang’s walk and Kim Hye-sung’s right-handed hit. However, Lee Hyung-jong was silent with a grounder to third baseman and swallowed his disappointment with two outs and full base that led to Song Sung-moon’s walk.
Hanwha, which has overcome the crisis of losing a large number of runs, ran far away in the top of the fourth inning. When Moon Hyun-bin and Oh Sun-jin picked up a series of walks and got on base, Noh Si-hwan hit a timely two-run triple over the right fielder’s height, and follow-up hitter Chae Eun-sung fired a two-run shot with a distance of 125m over the left fence. It was the moment when Chae Eun-sung’s 17th gun of the season came out.
Kiwoom, who had a busy way to go, fought back in the bottom of the fourth inning. Kim Hye-sung hit a timely RBI in the second base with two outs, which was connected to Park Chan-hyuk’s left-handed double. Dawson’s fly ball to the left field overlapped with Hanwha’s defense’s disappointing error, and even Kim Hye-sung dug into the home plate. The official record is Dawson’s one-run timely triple.
Kiwoom, which was looking for a chance to catch up, resumed its scoring streak in the bottom of the sixth inning. Kim Si-ang dug into the home plate by taking advantage of the opposing pitcher’s wild pitch at second and third bases with no outs made by Kim Si-ang’s left-handed hit and Kim Hye-sung’s left-center double. In the second base with no outs, Dawson hit a timely RBI, and Lee Joo-hyung and Lim Ji-yeol struck out consecutively, but follow-up hitter Song Sung-moon hit a timely RBI double over the height of the right fielder.
Kiwoom, which brought some flow, added one more run in the bottom of the eighth inning. When leadoff hitter Kim Hye-sung got on base with a right-handed hit, Dawson hit a timely RBI double that fell on the left-field line. Initially, he was ruled a foul, but after a video review, he was reversed with a hit.
Kiwoom later had a chance to get a full base with two outs with Park Chan-hyuk’s hit and Kim Hwi-jip’s grounder to second base, Kim Si-ang’s hit and Kim Hye-sung’s walk, but Dawson turned to shortstop grounder. That’s how the game ended with Hanwha’s victory.
Hanwha starter Han Seung-joo (seven hits, two outs, three strikeouts, four runs and three earned runs in four innings) failed to play long innings. Yoon Dae-kyung (win, 1 inning scoreless), Jung Woo-ram (0 innings 3 runs), Joo Hyun-sang (1 inning scoreless), Lee Min-woo (1 inning scoreless), Kim Bum-soo (1 inning scoreless), and Park Sang-won (three, one inning scoreless) took the mound.
Kiwoom suffered from sluggishness of pitchers, including starter Joo Seung-woo (four hits, one home run, four outs, one strikeout and five runs in 2.2 innings). Kim Hye-sung (5 hits and 1 RBI in 5 at-bats), Dawson (3 hits and 3 RBIs in 6 at-bats), and Song Sung-moon (2 hits and 1 RBI in 4 at-bats) showed off their high sensitivity, but they were not strong enough to prevent the team’s 7 consecutive losses.
