The Hanwha Eagles of the Korean Baseball Organization are writing their own fantasy drama.

After finishing in last place (10th) for three consecutive seasons (2020, 2021, 2022) and remaining in last place this year until June 21, Hanwha has gone on a frightening winning streak and has emerged as a dark horse to change the ‘mid-tier game’.

The Hanwha Eagles, led by “young slugger” Noh Si-hwan and “reliable foreign pitcher” Ricardo Sanchez, have soared to their eighth straight win in 18 years.

Hanwha swept the Samsung Lions 10-4 on June 1 at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu, South Korea, in the first game of the visiting Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League 2023.

The win streak, which began on June 21 against the KIA Tigers in Daejeon, extended to eight games.

It’s been 18 years since Hanwha has won eight straight games, dating back to a nine-game winning streak between the Doosan Bears on June 4 and KIA on June 14, 2005.

Hanwha’s previous longest winning streak was 14 games in 1992, when the team was known as Binggrae. After changing its name to Hanwha, the team went on a 10-game winning streak in 1999 after winning the Korean Series.

Although the seventh-place KT WIZ also won on the day and remained in eighth place, Hanwha maintained a two-game lead over the fifth-place Kiwoom Heroes, narrowed the gap to 4.5 games over the third-place NC Dinos and four games over the fourth-place Lotte Giants.

Hanwha has 31 wins (37 losses and four draws) in 72 games, halfway through the season. That’s seven more than the 24 wins (47 losses, one draw) they had in 72 games last year.

The key players in the win were Noh Si-hwan, whom Hanwha developed with a long-term plan, and Sanchez, who has been on the mound since May.

Noh went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBIs, including a walk-off home run.

Sanchez earned his fifth win of the season with six innings of five-hit, one-run ball. Sanchez hasn’t lost a game in nine appearances.

After giving Samsung the lead in the bottom of the first inning, Hanwha tied the game in the top of the fourth off the bat of Noh Si-hwan.

Noh, who started the game batting third, led off the fourth inning trailing 0-1 and took a two-seam fastball from Samsung ace David Buchanan for a game-tying solo arch over the left field wall.

Two batters later, Moon Hyun-bin singled and Jung Eun-won walked to put runners on first and second, and Choi Jae-hoon lined a single to right to make it 2-1.

Noh Si-hwan added an insurance run.

In the fifth inning, with runners on first and second, Noh crushed a Buchanan curveball for a grand slam.

Noh has homered in his last three games (four), giving him 17 homers on the season, two shy of the league lead (19 – SSG Landers). 메이저사이트추천

Hanwha pounded out a whopping 16 hits on the day, marking the club’s first multi-hit game this season.

As Hanwha took off, Samsung crashed and burned, dropping to last place and snapping a four-game losing streak.

■ Kwak-Bin Kwak throws 6 innings of 2-hit shutout ball – Chung Chul-won KK…Doosan defeats Lotte

In Ulsan, the Doosan Bears defeated Lotte 2-1, avenging a 0-1 loss in extra innings the day before.

Kwak Bin Kwak and Chul-won Jung, both born in 1999, got the start and the save, respectively.

Doosan took the lead in the top of the first inning when Yang Seok-hwan led off with a single to left, and Yang Ji-hye, the No. 4 hitter, followed with an RBI double to the right field wall.

In the ninth, Kang Seung-ho added another run with a solo shot to left.

Lotte fought back in the bottom of the ninth with three straight singles against Doosan closer Hong Gun-hee.

Trailing 2-1 and with runners on first and second in the bottom of the ninth, Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop removed Hong from the mound and brought in Jung Chul-won.

Jung struck out Kim Min-seok and Ko Seung-min to end the game and earn his first save of the season.

Kwak Bin improved to 7-2 with his six innings of two-hit shutout ball, his fourth win in his last five games.

Kia scores five runs in the fourth inning against LG ace Plutko to earn 100th win for manager Kim Jong-guk

Ninth-ranked KIA defeated the first-place LG Twins 5-3 in front of a sweltering 23,750 fans at Jamsil Stadium.

The victory was especially significant because it came against LG starter Adam Plutko, who was undefeated in 10 starts before the game.

Trailing 0-2 in the top of the fourth inning, KIA scored five runs on six consecutive hits from Socrates Brito, Hwang Dae-in, Ryu Ji-hyuk, pinch-hitter Go Jong-wook, Park Chan-ho, and Choi Won-jun after Choi Hyung-woo was walked.

Plutko suffered his first loss of the season, allowing five runs on eight hits in four innings. It was also the first time Plutko left the mound without completing the fifth inning.

KIA’s Kim Gun-guk, who made his first start in three years and eight months after resigning from Lotte on Oct. 7, 2019, against KT, lasted just 2⅔ innings (two hits and two runs), but KIA’s bullpen shut down the LG bats.

KIA reached the 30-win mark this season (37-1), while second-year manager Kim Jong-guk reached 100 wins (54th).

KT defeats NC on Byung-ho Park’s game-winning hit in the ninth inning

KT beat the NC Dinos 7-6 at home in Suwon thanks to Park Byung-ho’s game-winning hit in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Trailing 3-6, KT tied the game at 6-6 in the bottom of the sixth inning on Moon Sang-chul’s grand slam with runners on second and third.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, KT scored the final run of the game.

Ahn Chi-young led off with a single to right and Anthony Alford followed with a hit by pitch to put runners on first and second.

Park Byung-ho took advantage of NC closer Lee Yong-chan’s first-pitch forkball and lined a single to left field to end the game. It was Byung-ho Park’s seventh career game-ending hit.

Ian McKinney pitches six innings of three-hit ball to earn his first KBO victory

Ian McKinney, who replaced Eric Yokishi in a Kiwoom Heroes uniform, pitched six innings of three-hit shutout ball against his hometown SSG Landers to earn his first KBO victory.

Kiwoom won 6-3 thanks to McKinney’s performance.

McKinney, who took the loss in his KBO debut against the Doosan Bears on March 25 after giving up two runs on five hits in four innings, threw a “no-hitter” in his second start to earn the win.

McKinney was only in trouble once.

In the top of the fourth inning, McKinney gave up a leadoff double to Choi Jung in left field. Guillermo Heredia grounded out to shortstop, but Park gave up an infield single to shortstop to put runners on first and third.

McKinney was fortunate to get Kang’s well-hit ball in front of the second baseman, and he got Choi Ji-hoon to ground out to shortstop to end the inning without a run.

Kiwoom is still 2-9 against SSG this season, but McKinney’s appearance put an end to the SSG nightmare.
