Hanwha, who succeeded in reinforcing their power last winter, won in pitching harmony from the first day of the demonstration game.
Hanwha defeated KIA 6-1 in the 2023 KBO League demonstration game held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 13th.
Starter Felix Pena pitched well in 4 innings, striking out 5 and allowing 1 run, while relievers led by Yoon San-heum, Kang Jae-min and Han Seung-hyuk also blocked each inning without conceding a run.
On the other line, Brian O’Grady, a new foreign hitter, reported a two-run home run, while free agent transfer student Eun-seong Chae also scored an RBI with a sacrifice fly following a double in his first at-bat. No. 1 Noh Soo-gwang made 3 hits with 2 hits and 1 walk, and Kim In-hwan also had 2 hits and multi-hits. 오락실 토토
After the match, Hanwha coach Carlos Subero said, “It was encouraging that we brought the pattern we lost last year to the pattern of winning today. I hope you feel it,” he said. Hanwha, who scored the first goal in the 4th inning due to a catch error by KIA second baseman Hong Jong-pyo, added 3 points from continued opportunities, showing concentration not to miss any gaps.
Next, coach Subero said, “It was impressive that the pitchers managed to catch 27 outs on their own despite conceding early runs. It was a good game in that they got the first button right.”
Hanwha will continue its demonstration game against KIA in Daejeon on the 14th. Hanwha Birch Smith and KIA Adonis Medana will start side by side.
