Hanwha in danger of falling to last place… Will it help you focus on defense?

 Hanwha in danger of falling to last place… Will it help you focus on defense?

The Hanwha Eagles, who once dreamed of playing fall baseball, are now on a losing streak and are now worried about falling to last place. Hanwha, which plans to play out the remaining schedule by strengthening its defense, will play against SSG Landers and Kiwoom Heroes this week.

As of the 1st, Hanwha is on a 7-game losing streak. Since winning 11 to 6 in the game against KT Wiz on the 18th, they have not shown any notable results.

The match against Lotte on the 31st was also lost without a hitch. Against Lotte, Lee Taeyang, who was somewhat strong, was sent as the starting pitcher, but he ended up being the losing pitcher as he allowed only 6 hits, 2 strikeouts, and 3 runs (1 earned) in 4.1 innings. In the end, Taeyang Lee was replaced in the bottom of the 5th inning, and the players ended up losing 2 to 5 due to runs.

The batting line is also unstable. A representative example is foreign hitter Nick Williams.

Williams, who joined Hanwha in June as a replacement for Brian O’Grady, appeared in 36 games and showed a poor performance with a batting average of 0.222 (32 hits in 144 at-bats), 4 home runs, 18 RBI, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.596. It is excluded.

Coach Choi Won-ho said of Williams, “If he’s good, there’s no reason not to use him. You can’t start a player who doesn’t have a good batting or good defense, so you can’t use him because he’s not good.”

In this situation, Hanwha will play three consecutive games against SSG and Kiwoom this week.

Their season record against SSG, their first opponent, is 3 wins, 1 draw, and 7 losses, and against Kiwoom, 4 wins, 1 draw, and 6 losses.메이저놀이터

Hanwha has a difference of 0.114 points in winning percentage and 0.021 points in batting average from SSG. However, the average ERA is tied at 4.22.

A fierce battle is expected against Kiwoom, which is last in the league.

Hanwha’s winning percentage is 0.412, which is higher than Kiwoom’s (0.407), but Kiwoom’s batting average is 0.258, which is superior to Hanwha’s (0.238).

In particular, Hanwha is planning to ‘transition to protective baseball’ to make up for the poor performance at the end of the league.

In fact, Hanwha’s defense is not bad, with 74 errors, the fewest in the league, and the team catcher’s base stealing percentage is 35.9%, ranking second in the league.

Coach Choi said, “From now on, I think we will have to choose between increasing scoring power and lowering the number of goals conceded.” This means that players with good defensive skills will be selected first.
