Han Hyun-hee, who said, “I never want to lose to Kiwoom,” will ring his parent team and lead Lotte’s 8th consecutive win?

 Lotte Giants Sidearm Han Hyun-hee challenges to win 3 seasons against her parent team, where she has been with for over 10 years. The team’s 8-game winning streak in 13 years also rests on Han Hyun-hee’s shoulders.

Lotte will play the second game of the season against Kiwoom Heroes in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 30th. While taking a sweet break after the previous day’s game was canceled due to rain, they are aiming for two rabbits: 8 consecutive wins and 4 consecutive winning series on the last day of the weekend’s 3-game series. 

Lotte is putting their hopes on Han Hyun-hee as a starting pitcher. Han Hyun-hee is recording an average ERA of 7.56 with 2 wins and 2 losses in 4 games this season. On the 13th, he gave up 5 runs in 5 innings against the LG Twins and against the KIA Tigers on the 19th, giving up 5 runs in 4 innings.

Han Hyun-hee, as an individual, has a strong desire to win in the Kiwoom match, which she met as an ‘enemy’. After graduating from Gyeongnam High School in 2012 and starting his professional career by joining Kiwoom, Han Hyun-hee spent a total of 11 seasons in the ‘Hero Corps’ until last year.

He won the hold king for two consecutive years in 2013-2014 and became the league’s top-notch setup man, winning 11 wins in the 2015 and 2018 seasons. However, after failing to meet expectations last year with 6 wins, 4 losses and an ERA of 4.75 in 21 games, he left Kiwoom through FA (free agent) and made a new nest at Lotte.

Like most players who have moved to free agency, Han Hyun-hee has a strong desire to show a good performance against her parents’ team. He also declared war at the Lotte joining press conference in January, as well as at the spring camp return site in March, saying, “I never want to lose when I meet Kiwoom. 토토사이트

Unfortunately, the Kiwoom batting line struggled this year with a batting average of 0.234 (11 hits in 47 at-bats) and no home runs against underhand/sidearm type pitchers. Kiwoom knows Hyun-hee Han well, but on the contrary, Hyun-hee Han also knows the tendencies of Kiwoom’s main hitters.

If Han Hyun-hee blocks the longest innings possible with the least runs, the bullpen, which is currently operating the ‘iron wall mode’, will come to support. The Lotte bullpen is showing off its solidity with a salty pitch of 29 innings and an average ERA of 0.93 during the recent 7-game winning streak. 

Lotte can easily solve the game only when Han Hyun-hee does his part. It will be easier to challenge for 8 consecutive wins in 13 years only if he endures evenly until the middle of the game against Kiwoom Ace An Woo-jin.

Lotte’s 8th consecutive win has not been in the past 13 years since the June 12, 2010 Hanwha match led by coach Jerry Royster. With fans flocking to Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan based on their recent good results, attention is focused on whether Han Hyun-hee and Lotte will be able to have a happy Sunday evening.
