4 wins and 9 losses.
This is the performance that the Hanwha Eagles achieved while main hitter Noh Si-hwan (23) was absent. After Noh Si-hwan joined the Hangzhou Asian Games team on September 23, he recorded a winning percentage of .388 in the 13 games he played. I was worried about his attack power weakening, but it turned out to be a reality. Recently, even the mound collapsed and they lost four games in a row. On the 7th, they lost 17-0 to SSG Landers, and on the 8th, they lost 7-2 to KT Wiz. He gave up a total of 24 points in two games and scored only twice.
In his last 13 games, he has a team batting average of .203, 5.3, and an earned run average of 5.45. During this period, he is ranked last in two-strokes. They lost 8th place to the Samsung Lions and fell to 9th place. The gap with last place Kiwoom Heroes has been narrowed to 1.5 games. While Noh Si-hwan played as the national team’s No. 4 hitter, his team struggled hard.메이저놀이터
Noh Si-hwan, the national team’s No. 4 hitter, returns as Hanwha’s No. 3 hitter. He will return to Korea on the 8th and immediately play against the Changwon NC Dinos on the 9th without rest.
Both the team and the players are in a hurry.
There are now 5 games left. After the two-game series away to NC and Changwon on the 9th and 10th, the final three-game series against the Lotte Giants awaits on the 14th and 16th. In the worst case, you may fall into ‘last place’. For the fourth year in a row, the fear of being last has reared its head again.
These are 5 very important games for Noh Si-hwan personally. He made his debut against Kiwoom Heroes on September 22, the day before he joined the national team.
He hit his 31st home run. He hit No. 30 and added a home run in 16 games.
While he was away, SSG Landers Choi Jeong (36) hit his 27th, 28th, and 29th home runs. He hit 2 against Hanwha on the 6th, and hit 29 against NC on the 8th. He led by five before heading to varsity, where the lead was narrowed to two.
Choi Jeong, who had been faltering for a while, has recently improved his hitting skills. In his last three games, he has driven in five hits, including three home runs. Demonstrate concentration during the hectic competition for rankings. From Noh Si-hwan’s point of view, it seems like the fire has fallen on his feet.
It seems that the joy of winning the Asian Games that we have longed for will have to be put on hold for a while. Both Hanwha and Noh Si-hwan need home runs.
