Hanwha, led by head coach Choi Won-ho, became 14 wins and 21 losses (0.400) as it lost 2-10 in Game 5 of the season against the KIA Tigers of the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on the 4th.

At the same time, the rankings of Hanwha and KT changed as KT Wiz overpowered Kiwoom Heroes 6-2. KT rose one notch to rise from ninth to eighth, and Hanwha fell to ninth for the first time since the opening of this season.

Hanwha, which won 4-2 with Ricardo Sanchez as the starting pitcher on the previous day, took out its “opener” Lee Tae-yang card. As it was originally, “Ace” Moon Dong-ju had to step up, but as he was removed from the first team entry on April 29, he needed a substitute starter. Hanwha’s choice was not an alternative starter but an opener strategy.

The Hanwha Eagles fell to ninth place for the first time since the opening of this season, losing 2-10 in Game 4 of the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League against the KIA Tigers at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on the afternoon of the 4th. Starting pitcher Lee Tae-yang became a losing pitcher with six hits, one home run, one out and five strikeouts, and five runs in the ⅔ innings. Expo News DB

Coach Choi Won-ho said before the game, “I will run the mound thinking that (I will use all my pen) resources. There is a rain forecast for tomorrow (May 5), and we should try our best to win the game.” Lee said, “I will play 50 pitches and two to three innings.”

However, the Hanwha Eagles’ plan was completely twisted from the beginning of the game. Lee Tae-yang, who took the mound as the starting pitcher, had a double and a hit by tablesetters Park Chan-ho and Kim Do-young in the bottom of the first inning, respectively, and allowed third baseman Park Chan-ho to score when Choi Hyung-woo grounded out with one out and runners on the second and third bases.

After that, however, the problem was that Lee Tae-yang gave a two-run shot to Socrates Brito with two outs and a runner on first base. Lee Woo-sung’s walk and Kim Sun-bin’s hit caused a run-scoring crisis, and faced timely hit by two batters, Han Jun-su and Choi Won-jun. In the end, Lee Tae-yang gave six hits (one homer) and one out and five runs during the ⅔ innings, before leaving the mound.

Jang’s subsequent performance was also sluggish. He made a poor hit to leadoff hitter Kim Do-young in the bottom of the second inning, but lost a point due to Choi Hyung-woo’s RBI double with one out and runners on first base with one out after Na Sung-bum’s walk. After Socrates’ intentionally kicked four balls and Lee Woo-sung’s walk to load the bases with one out, Kim Sun-bin’s fly ball gave up a sigh, but Han Jun-su’s timely two-run ball allowed another run. Left-hander Lee Choong-ho, who took the mound with runners on the first and second bases with two outs, also gave up a hit to Choi Won-jun, and the score of the two teams widened to 0-9. Jang’s performance widened the score to four runs with two hits and three outs in an inning.

As a result, Hanwha, which collapsed in two consecutive big innings in the bottom of the first and second innings, had no choice but to lose its willingness to pursue. Roh Si-hwan’s solo shot and Lee Do-yoon’s timely RBI in the top of the ninth inning started the chase late, but it was not enough to bring about an atmosphere that had already moved toward KIA. Seven bullpen pitchers, including Jang Ji-soo, Lee Choong-ho, Jang Si-hwan, Kim Bum-soo, Park Sang-won, Jang Min-jae and Kim Kyu-yeon, had to take comfort in checking their conditions.

After falling to ninth place, the Hanwha Eagles will challenge the Winning Series on Tuesday with Ryu Hyun-jin as the starting pitcher. It remains to be seen whether the Eagles will be able to create an opportunity to turn around with the ace.
