The Hanwha Eagles scored a victory amidst a group struggle of pitchers.
Hanwha lost 6-9 in the match against SSG Landers in the 2021 KBO League held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 15th.
The initial flow wasn’t bad. At the end of the first inning, SSG Joo-Hwan Choi hit a two-run home run and was taken 0-2, but the batting line scored one point in the second inning and three points in the third inning and succeeded in a comeback 4-2.
However, in the defense in the 3rd inning, starting pitcher Kim Min-woo’s control caused trouble. Kim Min-woo caused a crisis by himself by recording four walks in the third inning alone. After conceding a point to push Choi Joo-hwan on a walk in one-man base, Han Yu-seom allowed a 4-4 tie with a one-run outfield sacrifice fly.
Hanwha took a point each in the 6th and 7th innings and took another 6-4 lead, but self-destructed in defense at the end of the 7th inning. After one death, Kim Bum-soo gave Kim Kang-min and Choi Jeong an excuse to chase after walking to first base. Kim Bum-soo seemed to get over the crisis by striking out Choi Joo-hwan, but Hanyu Island’s infield hit continued the two-team run-out.
Hanwha Bench rushed Kim Jong-soo to put out the fire, but Kim Jong-soo could not do his part. He walked to pinch hitter Ko Jong-wook and scored a goal in vain by pushing him away.
Kim Ki-tak, who was on the mound in the continuous two-game run, was also out of control. In the match with Park Seong-han, he walked and pushed the score to a 6-6 tie.
Hanwha manager Carlos Subero replaced the pitcher with Jae-Min Kang, the setup man he had saved, but Jae-Min Kang made pinch hitter Seong-Hyeon Kim on base with a fit ball. The game turned 6-7 with three consecutive push-outs conceded. SSG took the lead for free without a single hit on time.
Hanwha tried to counterattack in the early 8th inning, but withdrew without strength due to a three-way strike. At the end of the 8th inning, he was hit by SSG Oh Tae-gon with a wedge and two RBIs, and completely lost his pursuit of power. Even in the ninth inning, he could not surpass SSG finisher Kim Taek-hyung and dedicated the victory.
