Last week, the Hanwha Eagles rebounded after hitting bottom. After losing 6 games in a row, they won 3 games in a row, and succeeded in becoming a “loser”. The other line, which had been quiet for quite a long time, came out like a spring. The team’s batting average and scoring average during the six-game losing streak were in the 10% range, but after that, it exceeded 30% in three games.
The team, which only scored 8 points during the 6-game losing streak, scored 24 points during the 3-game winning streak. The Eagles, who rub their eyes and look again, are the batting line.
‘Domestic ace’ Kim Min-woo (28) is the main figure behind the rebound. On May 3, he started against the Doosan Bears and pitched 6 innings, giving up 1 hit and 1 run. Hanwha, who was in the middle of losing six straight, was dragged 0-1, then scored 8 points in the 7th inning and won 8-3 come-from-behind. I got out of the damn losing streak.
Since Kim Min-woo played a counterattack with 1 hit and 1 run until the 6th inning, it was possible to score a lot in the top of the 7th inning. When the team was at its most difficult, he reliably defended the mound. He was also scheduled to take the mound in the bottom of the seventh inning, but with a wide score gap, he threw 92 pitches and finished the game.
This match was a turning point. Hanwha won 10-3 against Doosan on the 4th. Chae Eun-seong hit 4 home runs, including a grand run, and won a major victory. The good flow continued into the weekend. On the 7th, against KT Wiz, they won 6-2 and continued their winning streak.
Kim Min-woo’s previous pitching match was also good. April 27 against Lotte Giants in Busan. He gave up 5 hits and 3 runs in 6 innings. He made a save against the Lotte lineup, which was on the rise. Hanwha’s batting line was blocked by Lotte starter Na Gyun-an and closer Kim Won-joong without allowing a run, and he became a losing pitcher.
In the last 2 games, 4 runs (3 ERA) in 12 innings, an average ERA of 2.25. Among Hanwha pitchers, Kim Min-woo is the only one who made two quality starts (6 or more starting innings, 3 earned runs or less).
On the way to winning streak, we face the Samsung Lions. Kim Min-woo will start on the 9th, the first day of three consecutive matches during the week. Their starting pitcher is David Buchanan. It is the Samsung Ace who recorded 11 scoreless innings in the last two games 토스카지노.
Kim Min-woo struggled against Samsung last year. 2 losses in 4 games – 6.43 ERA. In particular, José Pirella, Samsung’s center hitter, was strong against Kim Min-woo. He went 4-for-9 against Min-woo Kim, with a whopping 3 home runs.
It seems that the blockade of Pirella will be the key to victory or defeat.
Kim Min-woo’s goal this season is “to throw longer innings than last year.” If starting pitcher Kim Min-woo plays long innings against Samsung, the team’s chances of winning will increase that much.
