‘Book a Winning Series’ Hanwha Manager Choi Won-ho “Sanchez Pitching Perfect–Tablesetter’s Role”
Hanwha head coach Choi Won-ho applauded the performance of starting pitcher Ricardo Sanchez and tablesetters Lee Jin-young and Kim Tae-yeon, who helped the team book a three-game sweep over the weekend.
Hanwha won 7-0 against LG in Daejeon on Tuesday. Sanchez was the star of the show. Sanchez pitched a near-perfect game, throwing 112 pitches, allowing two hits, two walks, and eight strikeouts in eight innings. His 112th fastball was so powerful that it reached 151 kilometers per hour. Hanwha had won all six of Sanchez’s starts, who was 3-0 with a 1.39 ERA.
At the plate, Kim Tae-yeon, batting second, had two hits and three RBIs, including a two-run shot in the second inning, while Noh Si-hwan and Moon Hyun-bin also had multi-hit games with two hits. Leadoff hitter Lee Jin-young also did his part, going 1-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs.
With the win, Hanwha recorded its second straight victory and improved to 21-32-3 on the season.
After the game, Choi said, “Sanchez pitched a perfect game. With the table-setters doing their job, we were able to create chances and score early in the game to take the lead,” Choi said.메이저사이트
“It was especially important that Kim Tae-yeon, who celebrated her birthday today, made it easy for Sanchez as she played well in both offense and defense,” Choi added.
Hanwha announced Jang Min-jae as its starting pitcher for Game 11. LG will start Casey Kelly.
