It’s early days, but Noh Si-hwan (22) is doing great.
The Hanwha Eagles won 8-1 in a match against the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League Samsung Lions held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 6th.
The winner of this game was the beginning of the second inning. Hanwha, who continued to lead an uneasy 2-0, got a chance to load the bases with two outs. Noh Si-hwan entered the at-bat, and the Samsung pitcher was Baek Jeong-hyeon. Afterwards, a 2-ball 2-strike situation unfolded, and Noh Si-hwan was cornered. Baek Jung-hyun threw his signature waterfall curve as a deciding ball. 스포츠토토
Baek Jeong-hyeon’s ball was hard to see as a mistake. The drop was huge, and he fell through the strike zone. However, it was difficult to beat Noh Si-hwan’s contact ability. Noh Si-hwan made a clean left-handed hit, and the score was 4-0, creating an atmosphere for Hanwha’s victory. Since then, Hanwha has kept it and reported its first win this season.
In the last 3 games, Hanwha had 3 losses, but it was not a helpless look, but it was a look of biting the opponent until the end. There was also Noh Si-hwan in it. Although he is in the early stages, he has a batting average of 4.7 minutes and 4 runs on base, and he is showing great form in defense. It’s not that the skills are the same, but it’s like watching the Korean version of Nolan Arenado, the best third baseman in the major leagues.
In addition, he is also serving as a right-handed franchise slugger that he missed after Kim Tae-gyun left. Noh Si-hwan, who has suffered from growing pains since joining Hanwha in 2019, is becoming the center of Hanwha by making amazing growth.
