“Ju Hyun-sang, keep the team winning by pitching well every day.”

Hanwha won 8-5 against the KT Wiz at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 30th and won six consecutive games.

Hanwha’s only loss this season was against the LG Twins on the 23rd when it was the opening game. Since then, it has won six games and won six games in the opening seven games for the first time in 26 years since 1998.

The team has become a team that does not collapse easily, with starters, bullpen and batters all playing their roles.

On this day, Hanwha starter Felix Peña won his second win of the season with three hits (one home run) and three walks, six strikeouts and two runs in five innings.

Peña hit a two-run shot in the fifth inning, but tied up KT’s batters in the beginning and laid foundation for his team’s victory. Relievers who took over from the mound also cheered up.

After the game, Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho was the first to mention Joo Hyun-sang, who was the third pitcher of the day. “He pitched at a time when Joo Hyun-sang was important, overcame the crisis, and blocked the team until the next inning, contributing greatly to his victory. He has been showing good pitching every day to protect his team’s victory,” Choi said.

Joo Hyun-sang, who had no hit, one strikeout and no run in the first ⅔ against KT on the previous day, took the mound for two consecutive days. On the day, his team took the mound on the first and second bases with two outs in the sixth inning with a 6-3 lead, struck out Jang Sung-woo, a pinch hitter, and caught Kim Sang-soo with a fly ball to right field to break KT’s pursuit trend.

In the seventh inning with no outs and runners on the first and second bases, Mel Rojas Jr. induced a ground ball and Park Byung-ho pulled out a double play to protect his team’s lead.

Coach Choi pointed out, “Penya also played his role as a starter for five innings.”

The batting lineup also made 12 hits including two homers, and scored eight runs, easing burdens on pitchers. Jonathan Peraza hit one homer and a two-base hit, and An Chi-hong also tasted it for the first time since moving.

Manager Choi said, “Peraza, who is raising the dugout atmosphere with his fighting play, and Ahn Chi-hong, who brought a good flow with his running home run,” adding, “Jung Eun-won and Im Jong-chan also opened up chances actively, and Moon Hyun-bin also did not give up the flow with an RBI when needed.”

He then applauded, saying, “I want to praise all our players who are continuing their winning streak without losing their concentration.” 토토사이트먹튀
