Starting pitcher Jong-hoon Park, hit hard, can hold out even a single inning
SSG Landers was caught by the bottom-ranked Hanwha Eagles and delayed confirmation of first place in the professional baseball regular season.
SSG, who left ‘Magic Number’ 1 directly lost the Korea Series (KS) 4-7 due to a mound collapse in the away game against Hanwha in the 2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at the Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 3rd .
The gap between second place LG Twins and SSG, who did not play on the day, was reduced by 3.5 games.
SSG wins 1 in the remaining 3 games of the regular season, or if LG loses 1 in the remaining 6 games, the 1st regular season standings are confirmed.
Hanwha snapped a six game losing streak.
SSG had prepared T-shirts, hats and banners to commemorate first place in the regular season, but when starting pitcher Park Jong-hoon hit in the first inning, the atmosphere quickly dropped.
Park Jong-hoon gave up 4 hits and 3 walks while taking out 2 due to extreme control and giving up 5 runs.
SSG coach Kim Won-hyeong, who was watching patiently, dropped Park Jong-hoon and put in Oh Won-seok as Hanwha hit the batter.
SSG started chasing from the second innings.
Kim Kang-min’s walk, Park Seong-han’s right hit, and Kim Seong-hyun’s walk gave him a chance to complete the base safely.
However, follow-up hitter Lee Jae-won scored just one run as he hit a second baseman.
SSG caught up to 4-5 with a two-run home run by Choi Joo-hwan and a straight hit by Park Seong-han in the 3rd inning to score 3 points, but the gap widened again when they gave up a goal in the third inning.
Oh Won-seok allowed Choi Jae-hoon and Jang Jin-hyeok to hit consecutive hits, putting him in a one-on-one and second base crisis.
In the defense at the end of the 5th inning, which was behind 4-6, Choi Jae-hoon’s lefty hit and Jang Jin-hyeok’s sacrifice bunt put him in danger from 2nd to 1st and 2nd base.
SSG had no chance to counter attack after that and were full.
