Ryu Hyun-jin and Peña collapsed

Both Ryu Hyun-jin and Felix Peña of the Hanwha Eagles collapsed to Kiwoom Heroes. Kim Min-woo (29) will play to save Hanwha, which has lost its first consecutive game of the season.

Hanwha’s momentum, which had been a sensation in the early part of this season, has somewhat declined. It lost two consecutive games and recorded eight wins and four losses overall in the season. It fell from the lone lead to tying for second with the NC Dinos. The reason for Hanwha’s losing streak is due to sluggish starting pitchers.

The trusted one-two punch collapsed after giving up a large number of runs. In the game against Kiwoom held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 5th, Ryu Hyun-jin was the starting pitcher, and he was dismissed early after recording nine hits, two walks, two strikeouts and nine runs in four ⅓ innings. Hanwha already gave up too many points, so it fell to Kiwoom 7-11.

Peña was substituted early on Tuesday. He only pitched three innings. He allowed four hits, one homer, and three walks, striking out two and allowing six runs (four earned runs). Amid Peña’s sluggish performance, Hanwha lost to Kiwoom 6-7. He had a chance to load the bases with one out in the ninth inning, but Moon Hyun-bin hit a double play and the game ended.

Hanwha, which has been suffering from consecutive losses, will have Kim Min-woo as the starting pitcher for Tuesday’s game. Kim played as the ace in the 2021 season when the Hanwha Eagles started rebuilding. In the near-dark period, Kim won 14 games and lost 10 games with a 4.00 ERA in 29 games. Kim became the first starting pitcher for the Hanwha Eagles to win double-digit wins in 10 years since Ryu Hyun-jin (11 wins and 7 losses) in 2011.

Kim, who struggled with injuries and sluggishness until last year, struggled hard to create an opportunity for rebound during the off-season. He lost weight through intensive training and sought to increase his speed by visiting the driveline of the baseball academy located in Seattle, the U.S. As a result, Kim beat outstanding candidates to become a survivor of the rotation for starting pitcher at the Hanwha Eagles.

His performance in the training is clearly demonstrated by his performance. Kim’s maximum fastball speed was 148 kilometers. With increased speed, the power of his folk ball, his main weapon, has also increased. “Kim Min-woo has displayed ball power since the Okinawa spring camp in Japan. He maintained his ball power through the exhibition games. Kim is in the best condition,” coach Choi Won-ho said, expressing satisfaction at his improved performance.

In a game against the SSG Landers at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on March 26, Kim allowed two hits, walked three and struck out six in five innings. He became the winning pitcher. After the game, Kim said, “I had good ball power throughout the game. I’ve tried hard, but I would be upset if the result didn’t come out. I got good results from the first game. I felt that my efforts were not in vain.”

If Kim Min-woo continues the good flow, he can lead to the escape from Hanwha’s losing streak. The “Aces in the Dark Age” has a heavy shoulder. 토토사이트
