The Lotte Giants defeated the Hanwha Eagles and achieved a winning series. The next opponent is SSG Landers, who are fighting for the lead.
Lotte, led by coach Larry Sutton, won 7-0 in the home game against Hanwha in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 18th and wrote a winning series. With this victory, Lotte made a season record of 21 wins and 12 losses.
Starter Han Hyun-hee took a break for only 4 days before taking the mound, but became a winning pitcher with 6 innings, 1 hit, 4 walks, 6 strikeouts and no runs. Then, Kim Jin-wook, Shin Jeong-rak, and Na Won-tak came out and tied the Hanwha batting line. In the other lineup, Kim Min-seok recorded 3 hits including a home run, and Noh Jin-hyeok and Ahn Kwon-soo recorded 2 hits. An Chi-Hong scored 2 RBIs.
After the game, coach Sutton applauded Han Hyun-hee’s pitching, saying, “Han Hyun-hee showed a good performance as a starting pitcher in an important situation where we had to achieve a winning series, and led the team to victory when needed.”메이저놀이터
“Despite his excellent role as a starter in the last two games, the batting line scored a little less, but today, from the beginning of the game, he scored two runs first and helped Han Hyun-hee become a winning pitcher. Even in the second half of the game, batters continued to add more without losing concentration. I scored,” he praised.
Finally, coach Sutton added, “I think today’s victory and winning series were won because we fought as a team. We will continue this good atmosphere to Busan.” Lotte will move to their home on the weekend and compete against SSG for first place.
