Hanwha’s new foreign hitter, Williams, continues to struggle.
The game between the LG Twins and Hanwha Eagles of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League was held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Songpa-gu, Seoul, on April 12.
Hanwha won the game 2-1 over LG behind a strong performance from starter Moon Dong-joo, who allowed one run on five hits with five strikeouts in 7⅓ innings, and a two-run single by Moon Hyun-bin.
Hanwha Williams, who started in left field as the No. 7 hitter, went 0-for-4 with a walk.
She flied out to right field in her first at-bat in the second inning and grounded out in the fourth and seventh innings. Even with runners on first and second in the top of the ninth, Williams was unable to capitalize on the opportunity, striking out for no gain.카지노사이트
In 10 games since joining Hanwha, Williams is batting .163 with one home run, three RBIs, and a .484 OPS.
Williams was also disappointing on defense. He failed to catch a routine foul ball by LG Park Hae-min in the third inning and didn’t make an aggressive call on LG Shin Min-jae’s single with runners on first and second in the eighth inning.
Williams, who succeeded O’Grady, who was released after a dismal performance, is still finding it difficult to adjust to the KBO.
With only 10 games under his belt, Williams’ play is reminiscent of O’Grady’s in the past, and it’s making Hanwha fans nervous.
The team can’t afford another flop. Hanwha is making changes to Williams’ batting order and continuing to coach him on his hitting points.
If Williams comes alive, Hanwha’s leap to the middle of the pack will be easier. His performance is needed now.
