The flight of the Eagles continues. The professional baseball Hanwha Eagles defeated KT Wiz and won their sixth straight game after losing in the opening game.

In the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League home game against KT held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 30th, Hanwha won 8-5 with 12 long and short hits.

In the bottom of the third inning, Hanwha focused on two home runs and pushed KT starter Eom Sang-baek.

It started with foreign player Yonatan Peraza’s solo home run to the left.

Peraza targeted Eom Sang-baek’s outside change-up with a 2-ball count and went over the left fence.

Hanwha shook Eom Sang-baek in earnest, riding on the one-sided cheers of the home crowd that filled the stadium.

After the follow-up batter, Chae Eun-seong, got on base after being hit by a body hit, Noh Si-hwan exploded with a timely double down the left field line.

In the ensuing game, with one out and runners on second base, Ahn Chi-hong hit a two-run home run to left.

Hanwha, who quickly ran away with a 4-0 lead, again hit pitcher Son Dong-hyun, who had replaced KT, in the 4th inning.

Leadoff hitter Jeong Eun-won hit a triple over the right field, and Moon Hyun-bin hit a sacrifice hit to widen the lead to 5-0.

Hanwha, which seemed likely to win easily, allowed starting pitcher Felix Peña to catch up as he faltered.

In the top of the 5th inning, Peña’s control of the pitch was shaken, and he gave up a walk to lead hitter Cho Yong-ho and was hit by Bae Jeong-dae’s two-run shot to left-center.

In the bottom of the 5th inning, when Hanwha was ahead 5-2, leadoff hitter Lim Jong-chan’s triple to the right-field line and Ha Joo-seok’s timely hit to the right-field hit allowed Hanwha to get back one run, but in the top of the 6th inning, bullpen pitcher Kim Ki-joong faltered, allowing 1 run, and the game continued to be a 3-run game.

Hanwha secured victory in the 7th inning.

After two outs, pinch hitter Choi In-ho hit a heavy hit and Jeong Eun-won walked, creating an opportunity to score on first and second base.

The Hanwha bench made a big move by replacing Choi In-ho and Jeong Eun-won with pinch runners Lee Won-seok and Lee Do-yoon, and it was a hit.

When follow-up hitter Moon Hyun-bin hit a timely double to left field, two pinch runners rushed out and both came home, making it 8-3.

Hanwha allowed a two-run home run to Mel Rojas Jr. in the 9th inning, but it had no effect on the outcome of the game.

Peraza played an active part with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, including a home run, 1 RBI, and 2 walks, while Lim Jong-chan, who hit a timely hit in the bottom of the 9th inning against KT the previous day, contributed with 2 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 run, and 1 walk.

On this day, the stadium was filled with 12,000 spectators. Hanwha sold out all seats for two consecutive days following its home opener against KT on the 29th. 섯다
