The Hanwha Eagles defeated the Samsung Lions with Roh Si-hwan’s multi-four and Felix Pena’s good fight, and stepped on the 10-win season in 30 games.
Hanwha won 5-1 in the home game against Samsung in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 10th.
With this, Hanwha recorded 10 wins, 1 draw and 19 losses, preparing a stepping stone for a mid-level jump.
It reached double-digit wins in 30 games, which is the slowest pace since Carlos Subero took over. In 2021, the first season after taking over as coach Subero, he won 24 games (10-14) and in 2022, he won 10 games in 26 games (10-16).
Hanwha foreign pitcher Pena had 7 innings, 1 hit (1 home run), 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 1 run, and recorded his 3rd win (3rd loss) of the season. Pena tied up the Samsung batting line with a no-hit pitch before allowing Kang Min-ho a home run in the top of the 7th inning.
3rd hitter Noh Si-hwan also hit his 5th and 6th home run of the season against Won Tae-in in the bottom of the 4th and 6th innings. After hitting the Doosan Bears on the 4th, he hit the multi-four again in three games and tied for second place with Yang Seok-hwan (Doosan) in the home run category.
On the other hand, Samsung, whose three consecutive victories were canceled, broke the 50% win rate with 14 wins and 15 losses. Samsung starting pitcher Won Tae-in endured well with 5 hits (2 homers), 2 walks, 4 strikeouts and 3 runs in 6 innings, but he lowered his head because of two homers hit by Roh Si-hwan.
In the middle of the good pitching of the starting pitchers of both teams and the good luck of the fielders, Noh Si-hwan broke the balance of the tight 0 with a large home run at the end of the 4th inning.
After Jeong Eun-won walked out at the end of an 11-pitch battle, Noh Si-hwan hit Won Tae-in’s changeup and fired a two-run gun. It was Roh Si-hwan’s first home run this season.스포츠토토
Noh Si-hwan drew an arch again in the next at-bat. At the end of the 6th inning, with no runners out, Won Tae-in hit a changeup and fired a left-handed solo shot. It was Roh Si-hwan’s third consecutive home run.
Samsung, who had not been able to capture Pena’s ball at all, broke the no-hitter with Kang Min-ho hitting a solo shot in the first out in the top of the 7th inning. However, subsequent batters were silent and could not change the flow.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, Hanwha beat the changed pitcher Daewoo Kim and scored 2 runs to seal the game. Park Sang-eon’s 1 RBI double hit from 2nd out and 1st base, and Lee Won-seok immediately hit 1 RBI at the right time.
