Hanwha right-handed pitcher Lee Tae-yang (33) could not smile despite his first win in a month. He walked five times in a row, and the disappointment of not being able to play long innings blocked his smile.
Hanwha Eagles won 6-2 in the 14th game of the season against KT Wiz of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 18th. Hanwha, ranked 8th, avenged its double-header sweep the day before and ended its 4-game losing streak, recording 51 wins, 6 draws, and 66 losses for the season.
먹튀검증The main player in the victory was starter Lee Taeyang. Against second-place KT, he pitched well with 77 pitches, 3 hits, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts, 2 runs, and 2 runs in 5 innings, and reported his 3rd win of the season in about a month after the Changwon NC game on the 16th of last month. Although he gave up 2 runs due to timely hits from Bae Jeong-dae in the 2nd inning and Kim Sang-su in the 5th inning, he showed off his stability by getting rid of three-way offense in the 1st, 3rd, and 4th innings and stood tall as a stopper for the team’s losing streak.
After the game, Taeyang Lee said, “This is not a victory I achieved on my own. He shared the joy of victory with his teammates, saying, “I’m thankful to the fielders because they gave me enough points and I was able to pitch aggressively.”
The most disappointing inning of the day was the 5th inning. After giving up consecutive walks to Bae Jeong-dae and Shin Bon-ki with 1 out, he hit an RBI double on the first pitch against Kim Sang-soo, who appeared at 1st and 2nd base with 2 outs. Lee Tae-yang threw 28 pitches in the 5th inning alone and had to hand the mound over to Joo Hyun-sang in the 6th inning.
Lee Tae-yang said, “There was a difficult doubleheader yesterday, and since we are in the middle of a difficult schedule of 9 consecutive games, I wanted to play long innings. But he blamed himself, saying, “It’s too bad I couldn’t do that after giving up a walk in the 5th inning.”
Still, Lee Tae-yang, who returned to his former team Hanwha in November last year for a four-year total of 2.5 billion won, is playing a part of the Hanwha mound this year with 3 wins, 1 loss, 2 holds, and an ERA of 2.85 in 46 games.
Lee Tae-yang showed off his team-first spirit, saying, “For my personal greed, I want to pitch more stably, and I want to pitch to increase the team’s winning percentage rather than my own wins.”
Taeyang Lee, who has 21 games left until the end of the season, said, “The 2023 season will not come back, so next year’s season may be different depending on what mindset we finish with. “With that in mind, the entire team is playing the remaining games, cherishing each game,” he said, strengthening his resolve for the remainder of the season.
