The Hanwha Eagles, who placed 10th for three consecutive years, were also considered a strong candidate for last place this year. Even though he took first place alone in the demonstration game, the evaluation of baseball players did not change. Last winter, outside FA (free agent) Chae Eun-seong, Lee Tae-yang, and Oh Seon-jin were recruited to improve their strength, but they failed to change their perception. As expected by experts, it sagged from the beginning. The situation that I feared the most became a reality.

The absence and sluggishness of the two foreign players, the main force, was fatal. Opening day starting pitcher Birch Smith threw 2⅔ innings and broke away from power. Brian O’Grady, the fourth hitter in the opening game, was ranked last in batting average and first in strikeouts before going down to the second team.

He managed to rebound once under various unfavorable conditions. Last week, they won 3 out of 4 games, and succeeded in being in the last place. After 6 consecutive losses, he rode an upward trend with 3 consecutive wins.

There is a scene that stands out in this process. Doosan and KT were used as stepping stones to change the atmosphere.

In the first three matches against Doosan on April 18-20, they had 1 win and 2 losses. However, he did not give up the game easily. It was tight from day one. After leading to 0-0 until the 8th inning, I lost after giving up 2 runs in the top of the 9th inning. In the game on the 19th, after falling behind 2-5, they won a come-from-behind victory 7-6. On the 20th, they lost 1-5.

The second three-game series on May 2-4 flowed in a different way. After giving up the first match, they won two in a row. In both games, the batting line exploded, and they succeeded in scoring a lot. On May 3, they won 8-3, and on the 4th, they won 10-3.

won It was the second winning series this season. Matched the opponent’s record to 3 wins and 3 losses.

The first three matches against KT Wiz on April 14-16 ended with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss. I went right before the winning series and unfortunately missed it. After leading 7-6 on the 14th, the first day, they allowed a tie at the end of the 9th inning. The 12th overtime ended in a 7-7 tie.

In the 3 consecutive matches against KT this weekend, 2 games were canceled due to rain. On the last day, May 7th, in the 4th game of the season, they won 6-2. 9th place KT was brought down to the bottom, and the opponent record was 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss.

It has been at the bottom for the past three years, but it has performed well against KT and Doosan. Last year, when they were in the overwhelming bottom, they won 8-8 in 16 games with KT. I had 7 wins and 9 losses against Doosan. A third of the team’s 46 wins last season were against two teams. From the point of view of KT and Doosan, Hanwha seems to have looked like a ‘grim reaper’.스포츠토토

His objective power is clearly declining, but he showed strength in the face-to-face confrontation with the two teams. At the time, the team cycle was good, or there must have been an influence that we met at a time when we were riding a good flow. No matter how bad the team is

Winning builds confidence. Even if you lose, if the content of the game was good, the opposing team will bear more pressure.

Hanwha also won 7 wins and 9 losses against Doosan in 2020 and 2021.

For Hanwha, it is KT and Doosan that we are grateful for.
