‘Four straight wins’ coach Choi Won-ho “Minimized overtime aftermath, want to praise all players”
The Hanwha Eagles extended their winning streak to four games by taking game one of a doubleheader against the Kiwoom Heroes.
Hanwha, led by manager Choi Won-ho, won the first game of a doubleheader against Kiwoom in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League 11-2 at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Monday to extend its winning streak to four games and improve to 48-62 on the season.
Kim Ki-jung, making his first start of the season, pitched five scoreless innings of seven-hit ball with two strikeouts and two walks to earn the win, his first start in 739 days since August 31, 2021, against KT in Daejeon. Kim Jae-young and Park Jun-young followed with two scoreless innings of relief to close out the game.
At the plate, Moon Hyun-bin had two hits and two RBIs, Noh Si-hwan had three hits and two RBIs, Choi Jae-hoon had one hit and two RBIs, Choi In-ho had two hits, one RBI and three runs scored, and Oh Sun-jin had two hits, one RBI and two runs scored.
After the game, Choi Won-ho said, “Kim Ki-jung, the starter, did his job well. Kim Jae-young and Park Jun-young also pitched well, minimizing the aftermath of yesterday’s extra innings.” “Leadoff hitter Moon Hyun-bin gave us a lot of energy from the first at-bat with a long hit and an RBI. Oh Sun-jin and Choi In-ho also had four-hit games, including a multi-hit game, which made it easier for us to win the game.”토토사이트
After battling through 11 extra innings against SSG in Daejeon on the 6th, Hanwha played 12 extra innings on the 8th, and is now playing a grueling doubleheader. “I would like to commend the players for winning the first game of the doubleheader, which was not easy this week with two overtime periods and a long game overall,” Choi added.
