He served as the 4th hitter in the 6th batting order.
Hanwha Eagles’ main hitter Chae Eun-seong (33) hit his 18th home run in 5 games. In the SSG Landers game held at Daejeon Baseball Stadium on the 19th, he hit a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 4th inning. Immediately after scoring the first run with Kim Tae-yeon’s timely hit, he immediately scored an additional point. This is a home run that set the tone early on.
A full count game ensued with one out and one on first base. SSG starting pitcher Seung-won Moon threw a fastball (147 km per hour) high to the body and flew it over the left-center fence. Distance 130m.
Chae Eun-seong, who played very well as the number 4 hitter in the first half, saw her batting pace drop in the second half. The batting average in the second half hovered around .200. It was not a temporary slump, but a slump that lasted for nearly two months. Although it was physically difficult, it was difficult to rest due to the team’s circumstances.
Coach Choi Won-ho removed the exhausted Chae Eun-seong from the starting lineup against KT Wiz on the 18th. We gave baseball’s oldest veteran a break.메이저놀이터
In the match against SSG on the 19th, he was placed as the number 6 designated hitter. This game was the first time that he appeared as a starter in the batting order rather than the central batting line. This is an adjustment to the batting order with the intention of reducing the burden. Chae Eun-seong, who has a strong sense of responsibility, responded to the coach’s consideration with a home run.
