Last-place Hanwha knocked off first-place LG for the second straight day.
Hanwha won 5-3 against LG on Wednesday at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul. After snapping an eight-game losing streak, Hanwha returned to Daejeon with two straight wins and a winning series.
Hanwha broke the game open with a five-run second inning. Choi In-ho hit a tying triple and scored on an error. Lee Do-yoon followed with an RBI double, and then Noh Si-hwan hit a two-run double with runners on first and second.
Starter Moon Dong-ju threw 105 pitches, allowing three runs on 11 hits with one walk and two strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings. He was removed with runners on first and second in the bottom of the fifth inning with a 5-3 lead and did not fulfill the winning pitcher requirement. It was his last appearance of the season due to the “120-inning” innings limit.
In the bullpen, Kim Bum-soo came in with runners on first and second in the fifth inning and pitched 1⅔ innings of scoreless relief. Joo Hyun-seong followed with two scoreless innings of one-hit ball, and Park Sang-won pitched one scoreless inning in relief to earn his second straight save.
Manager Choi Won-ho said after the game, “It’s not an exaggeration to say that the bullpen made the game. Kim Bum-soo, who pitched in a crisis, and Joo Hyun-sang and Park Sang-won pitched cleanly,” he said.먹튀검증
“The bats stood out for their focus in the second inning. The flow from the bottom of the order to the top of the order was good.”
Choi mentioned Moon Dong-ju, who made his last appearance of the day, saying, “Moon Dong-ju made his last appearance of the season today, and I want to tell him that he had a hard season.”
