Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho’s smile, which won 6 consecutive games.

“I want to praise all of our players who have not lost their focus and are continuing their winning streak.”

Hanwha Eagles coach Choi Won-ho, who won six consecutive games, lavished praise on the players.

Hanwha, led by Choi, defeated KT Wiz led by Lee Kang-chul 8-5 in the 2024 professional baseball KBO League regular season home game held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 30th. Hanwha, which has won six consecutive games, recorded six wins and one loss. It is the first time in 26 years since 1998 that Hanwha has won six games and one loss in seven games since its opening

Jonathan Peraza displayed stellar performance in the game. Starting as the second batter and right fielder, he garnered two hits, one homer, and one RBI from three times at bat. An Chi-hong (one hit, one homer and two RBIs from four times at bat) also garnered two runs in the bottom of the third inning, and Moon Hyun-bin (one hit, three RBIs from four times at bat), Jung Eun-won (two hits from three times at bat), and Im Jong-chan (two hits from three times at bat) also showed their presence.

After the game, manager Choi Won-ho said, “Peraza, who is raising the dugout atmosphere with energetic play on the batting line, and Ahn Chi-hong, who brought a good flow with a running home run,” and gave a thumbs-up, saying, “Jung Eun-won and Im Jong-chan also opened the opportunity with active appearance, and Moon Hyun-bin also did not give the flow with an RBI as soon as necessary.”

Pitchers also displayed outstanding pitching. First, starting pitcher Felix Peña, despite struggles with ball control, allowed three hits, one homer, three strikeouts and two runs in five innings, while allowing three hits, one strikeout and two runs in three outings, to secure his second win of the season. Kim Ki-joong (1 run in 0.1 innings) was then shaken up, but Joo Hyun-sang (1.2 innings without allowing a single run) pitched well, and Han Seung-hyuk (one scoreless in one inning) and Lee Min-woo (two runs in one inning) also played their part.

Coach Choi said, “At a time when the main phenomenon was important, he took the mound and overpowered the crisis and blocked the next inning, contributing greatly to the victory. He has been playing well every day to protect his team’s victory,” adding, “Penya also played his role as a starter for five innings.”

Finally, coach Choi Won-ho left the ground, saying, “I want to praise all our players who are continuing their winning streak without losing their concentration.”
