Choi Won-ho “I want to praise all the players for staying focused until the end”

Hanwha defeats Lotte in extra innings to take the winner-take-all series.

The Hanwha Eagles won 5-4 against the Lotte Giants in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Sajik Stadium in Busan on Friday.

Hanwha won the game in the top of the 10th inning of extra innings with the bases loaded. Lee Jin-young hit a leadoff home run in the first inning, and Moon Hyun-bin hit a home run for the second straight game.

After the game, Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho said, “Peña gave up two runs on a home run, but he did his job as a starter. Kang Jae-min came in at a crucial moment and did a good job of stopping the rally. Park Sang-won also gave up a run, but pitched multiple innings to preserve the win. In the batting order, Lee Jin-young’s leadoff home run and Moon Hyun-bin’s two-run double set the tone early, and Jeong Eun-won and Chae Eun-sung provided valuable RBIs when we needed them. I would like to praise all the players for staying focused and doing their best to win the game 토토사이트.”
