Last season, Hanwha was really unresolved. It didn’t work out to the extent that I wondered if it could be solved like this. There was no pitcher to fill the innings as the first and second starters, the one-two punches of foreign pitchers, were all injured. The bad luck continued even after replacing both foreign pitchers. Everyone is injured and can’t be together until the end of the season. Former Hanwha coach Carlos Subero said, “I wonder if there has ever been anything like this in the history of Korean professional baseball.”온라인바카라
For Hanwha, who was like this, this year is different. Rain falls when needed. On the day I had to meet the ultimate ace, the moment the bullpen fatigue reached its peak, the game was canceled due to rain, and I took a breather. He said, “I’m sorry for all this time,” and even felt like the sky was helping. Once it is released, it cannot be released in such a pleasant way.
Hanwha, which has been on a 6-game winning streak, was unable to play its last home game against KT on the 29th at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park due to rain. On this day, Hanwha was scheduled to pitch Ricardo Sanchez, the ‘invincible fairy’. Sanchez, who joined the Eagles as a foreign substitute for Birch Smith, started eight games this season, and Hanwha did not give up a single game the day Smith stood on the mound. On the 16th, a 2-2 draw with Kiwoom, where Ahn Woo-jin started, was the only game they did not win.
It must have been regrettable that the game was canceled on the day Sanchez was scheduled to start, but the bullpen was given a sweet break. As Hanwha ran an unprecedented 1371-day winning streak, the bullpen was consumed a lot. This is because Hanwha’s Phil Seung-jo Kang Jae-min and Park Sang-won, who blocked the 8th and 9th innings side by side in the game on the 28th, needed a break. Park Sang-won, who threw 1.1 innings on the 17th and 2 innings on the 18th, stood on the mound on the 21st and 22nd, and on the 27th and 28th. During this period, Park Sang-won threw 7.1 innings and was so active that he only gave up two hits.
Kang Jae-min also kept the mound on the 21st and 22nd, and on the 27th and 28th. During this period, Kang Jae-min gave up 1 hit in 4 innings. In particular, Kang Jae-min is fighting hard as if he has returned to the past, when he was called ‘Mr. Zero’, striking out 5 times during this period.
When the game was canceled, Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho said, “It is good not to go against the will of the sky. If you force anything, you will get sick,” he said. Waiting for 3 consecutive battles is done only when the total number is less than 30 for two days, and I try not to do it as much as possible,” he laughed.
Not just this day. On the 25th, when Hanwha was on a four-game winning streak, it took a day off due to rain. At that time, Hanwha, who won both NC and 2 consecutive matches, had to play the last match against Eric Peddy. Peddy pitched 13 innings in two games against Hanwha. Hanwha’s batting line was sluggish with 6 hits in 44 at-bats against Peddy and was weak enough to not even score a single point.
Now, Hanwha is challenging for a 7-game winning streak. On the 30th at Daegu Lions Park, Hanwha will play three consecutive matches against the lowest placed Samsung. Coach Choi said, “There is a rain forecast until the morning of the 1st of the month,” but “First of all, in the first game of the three-game series, (Moon) Dong-ju came out, and Sanchez, who pitched that day, adjusted his condition on the 30th and then played the next game, the 1st of next month. I’m trying to get on the pitch,” he said.
