SSG came from behind to win 11-6 against the visiting Hanwha Eagles of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Friday.

With the win, SSG snapped a four-game losing streak and kept the team in third place.

SSG opened the scoring in the top of the first inning when Shin-soo Choo singled to right and scored on an infield single by Guillermo Heredia.

Hanwha turned the tide with a home run after an offensive shift.

After Moon Hyun-bin and Noh Si-hwan drew back-to-back walks in the bottom of the first inning, Chae Eun-sung blasted a three-run home run over the right-center field fence to make it 3-1.

In the third, back-to-back doubles by Kim Tae-yeon and Choi In-ho plated two runs with one out, and two batters later, Park Sang-un hit a two-run double to right-center to make it 6-1.

SSG cut the deficit to 3-6 in the top of the fourth when Han Yoo-seom hit a two-run home run to right center.

In the sixth inning, SSG scored a run on a wild pitch with runners on first and second, and then Choo Shin-soo hit a home run to left center to make it 5-6.

In the seventh, the tide turned.

Heredia was hit by a pitch, Park Sung-eun doubled down the right field line to put runners on second and third with Han Yoo-seom tying the game at 6-6, and Kim Min-sik followed with a bunt single to make it 7-6.

In the next at-bat, Choo Shin-soo’s infield grounder was turned into a fielder’s choice to make it 8-6.

SSG added three more runs in the eighth inning on back-to-back singles by Oh Tae-gon and Han Yoo-seom and a catcher’s error to make it 11-6.

Han went 4-for-4 with four RBIs, including a two-run home run.

In Ulsan, Yoo Kang-nam hit a game-winning three-run homer to lead the Lotte Giants to a 10-3 victory over the Samsung Lions.

Lotte scored the first run in the top of the first inning on a sacrifice fly by Nico Gudrum, before Yoo Kang-nam blasted a three-run homer over the left-center field fence for a quick 4-0 lead.

Samsung got a run back in the top of the second on a double by Ryu Ji-hyuk and an RBI single by Lee Jae-hyun, but Lotte took a 5-1 lead in the bottom of the fourth when Yoon Dong-hee doubled and Jeon Jun-woo singled to left field.

Samsung cut the deficit to 5-3 in the top of the fifth when Kim Sung-yoon hit a two-run triple to right-center field with runners on second and third.

However, Lotte scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth on back-to-back RBI singles by Yoon Dong-hee and Jeong Hoon to take a 7-3 lead, and in the top of the seventh, Jeong Hoon doubled and Ahn Chi-hong singled to left-center to make it 10-3.

Lotte starter Aaron Wilkerson picked up the win, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings.

In Changwon, the NC Dinos defeated the Kiwoom Heroes 2-1 behind two-hit performances from Eric Peddie and Park Gun-woo.

With the win, NC moved back into fourth place by half a game over the KIA Tigers, whose game was canceled due to rain earlier in the day.

In a tight pitching battle between Peddie and Ian McKinney, a single home run by Gun-woo Park was the difference in the game.

NC was unable to capitalize on Kiwoom starter McKinney, drawing two walks and going hitless through the fifth inning.

However, in the bottom of the sixth, after Son As-seop drew a walk, Park Gun-woo stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and lined a low changeup from McKinney for a towering two-run home run for a 2-0 lead.

Kiwoom got one run back in the top of the ninth as Song Sung-moon tripled and Lim Byung-wook singled to left-center, but it was not enough.

NC Peddie struck out 11 in the seventh inning, allowing just two scattered hits and no runs to improve to 17-6 on the season.

Pedi lowered his ERA to 2.28 and moved into sole possession of first place in both categories.

Meanwhile, the KIA Tigers-Dusan Bears game at Jamsil Stadium was canceled due to rain. 안전카지노사이트
