‘It’s hard to win even if the 4th hitter puts up 3 hits and 4 RBIs in 5 at-bats…’ Hanwha fans cheered loudly without leaving their seats for 4 hours and 46 minutes until the 12th inning sighed. rested
Ahead of this season, the Hanwha Eagles succeeded in signing outfielder Chae Eun-seong for a total of 9 billion won over six years. It’s still early in the season, but Chae Eun-seong’s contract is so successful that the sound of Hye-ja comes out. Chae Eun-seong, who leads the central batting line, is quickly melting into Hanwha, making the team atmosphere even brighter.
Chae Eun-seong had a batting average of 0.366, 15 hits, 3 homers, 11 RBIs and 8 points before the game. 1st place in RBI, 1st place in home runs, 4th place in hits, 2nd place in slugging percentage, and is ranked at the top of the offensive line.
On the 14th, I visited Suwon after finishing the KIA expedition in Gwangju with a winning series. Chae Eun-seong started as the fourth hitter and right fielder.
In the first inning, Chae Eun-seong raised the first point by pulling KT ace Benjamin’s 3rd curve with 2 outs and 3rd base, and continued a good hitting feeling from the start. Chae Eun-seong, who started with a first-time hit, swallowed regret as the ball hit well in the 3rd inning went to the front of the fielder.
5th inning, third at-bat. Hanwha, which was trailing by 3-1 and 2 points, had Chae Eun-seong as a solver. Park Jeong-hyeon infield hit, Lee Won-seok hit, Jeong Eun-won walk made it a safe and base-loading chance. Chae Eun-seong pulled the 132km slider on the 5th pitch of 2B 2S in a game with the changed pitcher Kim Young-hyun and broke through the infield. It was a moment when Chae Eun-seong, the 4th hitter, showed off his instinct to solve the scoring right from the first time hit to the timely tie.
Hanwha and KT, who repeated reversals of reversals. Hanwha, with 2 outs and bases loaded in the 6th inning, trailed 4-3 by 1 point. Chae Eun-seong took the lead again by connecting KT Kim Min’s 132 km slider with a timely hit. This time, it was a timely turnaround.
On this day, Chae Eun-seong was responsible for more than half of the team’s 7 points, posting 3 hits and 4 RBIs in 5 at-bats.
Hanwha finished with a close lead by 1 point. Kim Bum-soo allowed a solo shot to tie the score to KT Byeong-ho Park in the ninth inning and failed to finish the game.
Eventually, the game went into overtime and ended in a 7-7 tie after a bloody battle that went into the 12th inning.
The match started at 18:29 and ended at 23:25. Total game time 4:46 Before midnight, Hanwha fans who had been shouting “The strongest Hanwha” in the third base crowd even after the 8th inning had to return home, swallowing their regrets.
In the Exciting Zone right next to the reporter’s seat,토스카지노 some fans applauded the Hanwha players who struggled through the 12th inning, but when Chae Eun-seong passed by, they said, ‘I can’t win even though the 4th hitter is so good’.
Chae Eun-seong, a 9 billion free agent, is doing a great job, but baseball is a sport that cannot be played alone. The Hanwha Eagles are missing the victory by a single point, as if they are about to be caught. It will be difficult for the fans who supported them until the end for nearly 5 hours over 12 episodes, but I hope they will give a little more strength.
