Hanwha Eagles foreign pitcher Ricardo Sanchez played his first game a month after the season opened, but he built up a multiplier one by one. As he already achieved his 5th win, he became tied for second in the team with Dong-ju Moon following Felix Pena (6 wins).
Hanwha won 10-4 in the 10th game of the season against the Samsung Lions of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 1st, and won 8 consecutive wins, making the season record 31 wins, 4 draws and 37 losses (0.456). It is the first time in 6,593 days that Hanwha has recorded 8 consecutive wins since the match against Daejeon LG Twins on June 12, 2005.메이저놀이터 주소
If it was Noh Si-hwan’s home runs in consecutive hits in the 4th and 5th innings that broke Samsung’s will to pursue, it was thanks to starting pitcher Sanchez’s strong pitching that Hanwha was able to push Samsung throughout the game.
At the end of the first inning, Sanchez dedicated the first run to Kang Min-ho with an RBI, but from the second inning, he pitched 5 consecutive scoreless innings. In addition, the other line, including Noh Si-hwan’s two home runs, relieved Sanchez’s burden with double-digit scores and hits from all starters.
On this day, Sanchez, who recorded 5 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 6 innings, achieved 5 wins of the season. Sanchez’s performance this season, including the match against Samsung on the 1st, is 9 games, 48⅔ innings, 5 wins, and an average ERA of 1.48. Sanchez, who joined Birch Smith as a substitute foreign player, quickly melted into the team and perfectly adapted to the KBO league, and Hanwha showed a high win rate with 9 wins and 1 draw in 10 games Sanchez started. This is why fans call him the ‘victory fairy’.메이저놀이터
Sanchez, who kept the title of ‘victory fairy’, said after the game, “It feels really good to be able to continue the winning streak. I think I was able to win because my teammates made good plays every time I started.” It was difficult, but first of all, as a starting pitcher, early runs can always happen, so I thought it was my job to quickly rectify such a situation, and I focused more.”
In addition, Sanchez did not forget to thank the catcher, who worked together, saying, “Most of all, I got along very well with catcher Choi Jae-hoon. .
Finally, Sanchez said, “Even though it was an away game, many Hanwha fans came and supported me, and I sincerely thank you.” I will do it,” he promised.
