Chae Eun-seong solved it… Another come-from-behind defeat, why can’t Hanwha win?

It could have been a great home opener for Hanwha. Chae Eun-seong, who was recruited as a free agent with a huge amount of money, was able to decorate his career with 1,000 hits in the new team’s home opening game with thrilling come-from-behind hits in the 8th inning. However, the bullpen failed to overcome the last hurdle in the ninth inning, and ended in a reversal defeat, allowing 4 runs in a big inning in the 10th inning.

Hanwha led 3-1 until the 8th inning against Daejeon SSG on the 7th, which was the home opener. It was blocked with a scoreless score until the 6th inning, but Park Sang-eon’s 1 RBI double in the 7th inning, followed by Chae Eun-seong’s 1 RBI double in the middle left in the 8th inning succeeded in turning 2-1. Chae Eun-seong revived the flow that was almost cut off when front hitter Noh Si-hwan struck out on a swing in the 1st and 2nd base chance.

With this hit, Chae Eun-seong stepped on the 1000th hit in his personal career. The 114th record in KBO league history. On May 27, 2014, when he was a member of LG, he reported his first hit by hitting Bae Young-soo (now Lotte pitching coach) in the second at-bat in the 4th inning in the 1st team debut match against Samsung in Jamsil, 8 years, 10 months and 10 days It was 1000 hits achieved in 3237 days.

Chae Eun-seong, who was recruited as a solver for Hanwha by hitting the FA jackpot with a condition of up to 9 billion won in 6 years last winter, is active with a batting average of 3.64 (8 hits in 22 at-bats), 1 home run, 8 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.008 in the opening 5 games. A batting average of 50% with 5 hits in 10 at-bats. On the 2nd, against Gocheok Kiwoom, he showed his ability to solve the problem with 3 hits and 3 RBIs in 4 at-bats, hitting 3 consecutive at-bats in the 1st, 3rd and 5th innings, and on the 6th against Daegu Samsung, he scored a wedge in the game with a three-run home run in the 9th inning. He broke Hanwha’s opening three-game losing streak and led them to their first win. 먹튀검증

Hanwha coach Carlos Subero also said, “Chae Eun-seong is a professional hitter. I came from LG, which played a lot of winning baseball, and there is a lot to learn from young players on and off the field. Chae Eun-sung’s influence on our team is nothing but positive.”

On this day, the home opener also played the role of a solver with a decisive blow in the 8th inning. The joy of Hanwha, who continued to score 3-1 with Brian O’Grady’s sacrifice fly in the 1st out, 2nd and 3rd bases, did not last long. The atmosphere of enthusiasm in the 8th episode cooled down in an instant in the 9th episode. As soon as finishing pitcher Jang Si-hwan got on the mound, Choi Jeong and Choi Ji-hoon hit consecutive doubles and gave up one run.

Yoon San-heum, who is strong in crisis, was hurriedly put in and struck out one, but allowed a 3-3 tie by pushing away with two walks. The moment Chae Eun-sung’s final blow flew. Even in the 10th inning of overtime, Han Seung-hyeok was unable to hold an out count and collapsed with 3 hits, 1 walk, 1 ball and 4 runs. The main phenomenon that came up next was also unable to repair the collapsed bank due to consecutive walks including pushing. He lost his strength by going to the 10th overtime, but ended up losing 3-7 again. It was the 4th loss (1 win) of the season.

3 out of 4 losses were come-from-behind losses. All four losses gave up the winning run after the 7th inning. On the 1st and 2nd, from the 2nd consecutive opening game of Gocheok against Kiwoom, we lost two consecutive defeats. In the opening game on the 1st, Jang Si-hwan was defeated by Lee Hyung-jong in the 10th inning, and the next day, Ju Hyun-sang in the 9th allowed Kim Hui-jip to finish with a kick-off walk. In the 7th inning against Daegu Samsung Electronics 5-5 on the 4th, Han Seung-hyeok hit a final two-run home run by Jose Pirella.

The power to withstand the match in the second half of the game is reduced. Jang Si-hwan started the season with a finish, but he continues to be anxious from the beginning. The bullpen can also find stability only when a clear finish takes center stage. Park Sang-won, who was one of the candidates for the closer, had a bruise on his arm during the first spring camp in Arizona, USA, so his preparation for the season was delayed. I wonder how coach Subero will solve the difficult finishing problem that has been faced from the beginning of the season.
