The Hanwha Eagles, 온라인카지노 who once dreamed of fall baseball, are now worried about falling to the bottom of the standings after losing three straight games. Hanwha, which is hoping to get through the remainder of its schedule by strengthening its defense, will play SSG Landers and Kiwoom Heroes this week.
Hanwha is on a seven-game losing streak as of today. They haven’t had a good performance since their 11-6 win over KT Wiz on April 18.
They also lost to Lotte on the 31st without much luck. Against Lotte, they sent out a rather strong Lee Tae-yang to start the game, but he only lasted 4.1 innings, giving up three runs (one earned) on six hits with two walks and two strikeouts. Lee was pulled in the bottom of the fifth inning, and the team’s offense continued to struggle, eventually losing 2-5.
The batting lineup is also shaky. Nick Williams, a foreign hitter, is a prime example.
Williams, who joined Hanwha in June as a replacement for Brian O’Grady, has struggled in 36 games, batting .222 (32-for-144) with four home runs, 18 RBIs and an OPS of .596, and has been dropped from the starting lineup.
Manager Won Ho Choi said of Williams, “If he’s good, there’s no reason not to use him. If he’s good, there’s no reason not to use him.” Choi said, “You can’t put a player with a bad bat and a bad defense in the starting lineup because he’s not good.
In this situation, Hanwha will play a three-game series against SSG and Kiwoom this week.
Against the first opponent, SSG, Hanwha has a season record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 7 losses, while Kiwoom has a record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses.
Hanwha is 0.114 points behind SSG in winning percentage and 0.021 points behind in batting average. However, they are tied in ERA at 4.22.
It will be a tough battle against Kiwoom, who are last in the league.
Hanwha has a higher winning percentage (0.412) than Kiwoom (0.407), but Kiwoom has the edge in batting average (0.258) over Hanwha (0.238).
Hanwha, in particular, is looking to make up for its poor performance at the end of the league by switching to fielding.
In fact, Hanwha’s defense is not bad, with just 74 errors, the fewest in the league, and a 35.9 percent team catcher throwing out stolen bases, the second-best in the league.
“In the future, I think we need to choose between scoring more runs and lowering runs,” Choi said. This means that he will prioritize players with good defense.
