“Please let’s go (home), I said let’s go after winning.”
Chae Eun-seong (33), the central hitter of the Hanwha Eagles, expressed her feelings about leading Hanwha’s first walk-off victory this season. Hanwha won a 2-1 victory in the 10th overtime in the game against the Lotte Giants of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 17th. 9th place Hanwha recorded a season record of 13 wins, 21 losses and 2 draws.
Chae Eun-seong started as the third batter and first baseman that day and recorded 2 hits and 1 RBI in 5 at-bats. RBIs were scored when the team needed them most. Chae Eun-seong gave the team victory by hitting a timely hit in front of the center fielder in the 2nd 1st and 2nd base opportunity created by Jung Eun-won’s hit and Noh Si-hwan’s walk at the end of the 10th inning with a 1-1 match.
Although the ball was not very deep, second base runner Jeong Eun-won desperately ran all the way home, and the game ended as the opposing catcher Yoo Gang-nam missed the relayed ball.
The Hanwha team desperately needed to get off work more than anyone else at the stadium. Hanwha drew 3-3 after a close game against SSG Landers in Incheon on the 14th after going into overtime until the 12th inning, and on the 16th against Lotte in Daejeon, losing 1-3 in the 10th overtime, fatigue was accumulating. All the players shouted with one mind to finish the game as 토스카지노 soon as they had to fight three consecutive games until this day.
Chae Eun-seong said, “Please keep going, let’s win and go. But today (17th), I’m glad we won,” and smiled.
The players were united with the will to do it to the end. Chae Eun-seong said, “Since we are at home, we have a higher chance (to win). We kept talking about getting on base and creating a situation somehow.”
Jeong Eun-won and Noh Si-hwan kept their promise to “let’s get on base somehow”, and Chae Eun-sung solved it last, and I was able to leave work in a good mood for this day.
I hoped that one valuable victory would serve as a stepping stone for the team to grow. Chae Eun-seong said, “I think we need to win a little bit of a difficult game one by one to get more strength in the game. As it was in the LG days, I think if we overcome this difficult game one game at a time, we will go up little by little.” said
