In June, he seems to have entered the mid-range battle in earnest with his hot batting power and solid starting pitchers of foreign one-two punches.
Hanwha won six consecutive games with a 6-4 come-from-behind victory over KT in the 2023 KBO League at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 28th. It is the first time in three years and nine months and 1,371 days that Hanwha, which has been at the bottom for three consecutive years from the 2020 season to last year, has won six consecutive games since September 2019. Although the ranking is still 9th, it has prepared conditions to reverse the ranking at any time and advance to autumn baseball due to the low number of wins in the 4th and 5th places. 스포츠토토
Hanwha’s recent momentum was also confirmed in the match. Starting pitcher Han Seung-hyuk gave up four runs in the top of the first inning, but he followed with Kim Tae-yeon’s timely hit and sacrifice fly in the bottom of the second and fourth innings, respectively. He then tied the score with Lee Jin-young’s two-run home run in the fifth inning and succeeded in turning the game around 5-4 with Noh Si-hwan’s home run in the seventh inning. Hanwha also secured the victory in the eighth inning by running one more point with Lee Jin-young’s sacrifice fly.
On the mound, following Han Seung-hyuk, Joo Hyun-sang, Lee Tae-yang, Kim Bum-soo, Kang Jae-min, and Park Sang-won effectively continued to throw, calming the KT lineup, which has recently risen. Hanwha’s winning streak was all the more meaningful because KT was ranked first in the team’s performance in June.
