“It’s not that the ball itself is bad. There will be pressure in difficult situations.”
Choi Won-ho, the head coach of the Hanwha Eagles, showed his trust in Park Sang-won as a finisher.
Speaking to reporters on the 24th, Choi said, “It’s my first time in the closer position this season. It’s difficult, and there will be pressure as he goes out in tight situations. It’s definitely not easy. It’s not that the ball itself is bad. I will do better.”
Park is 5-3 with 10 saves and a 2.87 ERA in 39 games this season. However, he hasn’t been smiling in his last three games. On the 16th, he recorded his first career 10th save against the Changwon NC Dinos, but was shaken by two runs in the first inning. On the 19th, he took the loss against the KT Wiz in Daejeon, giving up one run on three hits in two innings. On the 22nd, he suffered another loss against the Samsung Electronics in Daejeon, giving up four runs (unearned) on four hits in one inning as his infield struggled.메이저놀이터
Hanwha sits in ninth place with 42 wins, 56 losses and six ties, with no games in hand on eighth-place Samsung. “It’s the same for every team, but we’re playing with a selfless spirit,” said Choi Won-ho.
Meanwhile, heavy rain poured down in Daejeon, where the game was being played. The previous day’s game was also canceled due to rain. It was the second consecutive rainout.
Hanwha was scheduled to play Moon Hyun-bin (second base), Lee Do-yoon (shortstop), Noh Shi-hwan (third base), Chae Eun-sung (first base), Kim Tae-yeon (right field), Nick Williams (designated hitter), Choi Jae-hoon (catcher), Choi In-ho (left field), and Lee Jin-young (center field), and the starting pitcher was Moon Dong-ju. Moon is scheduled to pitch against the Gwangju KIA Tigers on the 27th.
