Why was Moon Hyun-bin replaced in the bottom of the first inning? Manager Won-ho Choi said, “Failed to follow instructions to dive when there were runners on base.”

 Hanwha Eagles won a complete victory against KIA Tigers, but there were many flaws in the process. Especially the beginning and end.메이저사이트

Hanwha won 14-8 in the home game against KIA held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 21st, the day before. With this win, the gap with 7th place Lotte was reduced to 3.5 games.

Hanwha gave up a run from the first inning. Starting pitcher Felix Peña hit a triple by Kim Do-young with one out. He then gave up an infield ground ball to Kim Sun-bin, giving up one run. No. 4 Choi Hyeong-woo also hit a long hit. This time it was a double to left center. And Socrates was allowed to strike at the right time.

Socrates’ hit rolled slowly between 1st and 2nd bases, but second baseman Hyunbin Moon gave up the hit due to sloppy defense. If he had slid, Choi Hyung-woo could have stopped at third base.

Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho replaced Moon Hyun-bin and brought in Jeong Eun-won ahead of the attack in the bottom of the first inning. He was essentially pointing out that he did not play active defense. It can be seen as a reprimanding replacement. Moon Hyun-bin did additional defensive training after the game.

Coach Choi Won-ho, who met before the game on the 22nd, said, “I talked to the defensive coach. I instructed him to dive for ground balls when there are runners on base. Moon Hyun-bin did not execute that, so we removed him. There is also a message to the players.” After explaining the background, he said, “If you are conscious (of having to dive), you can do anything. It is inevitable that you cannot catch something while diving. Just because you are conscious doesn’t mean you will be good at it, but you can do things like diving and sliding if you are conscious. “These are things,” he said.

He continued, “Hyun Bin is now 20 years old. Next to him, (shortstop) Do Yoon is a senior to Hyun Bin, but he fights hard and makes hustle plays. In my personal opinion, I think Hyun Bin needs to be more energetic than Do Yoon.” He emphasized, “Even when I was in the second team, if there was a miss, I told him to train on the same day. That’s why I ordered Hyun Bin to do (defense training) as well. It was a miss, not a mistake.”

Hanwha also had difficulties in the 9th inning. Park Jun-young, who had blocked the 8th inning well with KKK, came up in the 9th inning and overused bases and balls. The velocity suddenly decreased, and there was no control. Even though he went up with a 10-point lead, Park Jun-young’s anxiety over his control was disappointing. The Hanwha bench had to hastily put Jang Min-jae on the mound. 

Coach Choi said, “(Park) Jun-young’s speed sometimes decreased when the number of pitches increased during his training in the second team. So, to recover his velocity, he started as a starter, but reduced the number of pitches and had him throw only about 50 pitches in three innings. “In the game against Kiwoom, he pitched two good innings, and that showed up yesterday,” he said. “I’m worried. I need to think about whether I should focus on being a setup man and raise him up, or leave open the possibility of being a starter.”

He also said hello to Jang Min-jae, who came to warm up in a hurry, saying he had worked hard. Manager Choi said, “It was really hard. Still, shouldn’t we send out a pitcher who knows how to throw strikes? So I let Minjae warm up and sent him out. If I had known this would happen, I would have let him warm up a long time ago and let him go for one inning. At least one person could be saved. “I was trying to get him to do it, but it suddenly happened like that and I was very embarrassed,” he said.
