While Noh Si-hwan, Moon Dong-ju, Kim Hye-seong, and the golden youth were away… How is the final title race going?
The Korean baseball team for the Hangzhou Asian Games returned to Korea on the 8th.
It was a golden return. The situation raised concerns that the assessment of being the weakest team of all time would become a dark reality after losing the first game against Taiwan.
Succession is the only option. The young people overcame great pressure and did it.
After defeating Japan and China in the super round, they took revenge on Chinese Taipei in the final on the 7th and stood tall at the top. 4th consecutive Asian Games gold medal. The national team returned home the next day, the 8th.
The players dispersed to their respective teams. Some teams are urgent to join right away, while others are not.
There are also players with personal records at stake.
While the golden youth were away. A slight trend of change can also be felt in some personal titles.
The biggest concern is whether Hanwha Noh Si-hwan will win the triple crown.
A young slugger who was dominating the three iconic fields of a slugger, including home runs, RBI, and slugging percentage, before joining the national team.
However, while I was away for about 15 days, the situation changed slightly.
Noh Si-hwan’s concerns before joining the national team became reality.
Prior to the national team call-up training held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 24th, Noh Si-hwan said, “Being the home run king is a gift from heaven,” but said, “I hope Choi Jeong doesn’t hit as much as possible while I’m out. I hope I’ll be in first place when I return,” with his honest thoughts in the joke. He confessed.
Choi Jeong, the best slugger in Korea with the most home runs. There was no way it would stop as Noh Si-hwan wanted.
In the last 10 games, he added 4 home runs and hit 29 home runs, putting pressure on Noh Si-hwan (31 home runs) by 2. Following a multi-home run against Hanwha on the 6th, he hit a wedge home run against Changwon NC on the 8th. The pace of home runs has been steep recently.
Hanwha and SSG have 5 games remaining each. In reality, it is a distance that is difficult to overcome. However, we cannot rule out the possibility of Choi Jeong’s characteristic rush.
In terms of slugging percentage, first place was given to Choi Jeong. Although the score is tied at 50.49 ri, Choi Jeong is in first place in a certain unit.
The RBI is not under any major threat. Noh Si-hwan had 99 RBIs, and 2nd place LG Orsontin Dean had 92 RBIs, adding only 3 RBIs in Noh Si-hwan’s absence.스포츠토토
Kiwoom Kim Hye-seong, selected by national team coach Ryu Joong-il as the “national team batting MVP,” is challenging Suseong, who ranks first with the most hits, to become the batting champion. While he was away, leading hitter NC Dinos Son Ah-seop caught up with a one-hit lead. Kim Hye-seong is in first place with 183 hits, and Son Ah-seop is in second place with 182 hits. Kiwoom has 3 games left and NC has 7 games left, so they are in a very unfavorable situation.
Rather, there is a possibility of becoming the comeback batting champion.
Son Ah-seop is in first place with 30.4p3, and Koo Ja-wook of the Samsung Lions is in second place with 30.4p1. Kim Hye-seong is in third place with 3.33pun5. If he improves his batting average in the remaining three games, becoming the first batting champion is not a dream.
Son Ah-seop is in a situation where he has to play until the last minute due to the fierce battle for team rankings. He can’t afford to manage his batting average.
While Hanwha Eagles’ Moon Dong-joo, the main player in the finals, was absent, there was no significant change in the Rookie of the Year landscape.
KIA Tigers Yoon Young-cheol failed to add a win. In the game against Samsung on the 8th, he recorded his 7th quality start of the season with a good pitch, allowing 4 hits and 1 run in 6 innings, but was unable to become the winning pitcher due to poor batting support.
8 wins and 7 losses in 25 games, with an ERA of 4.04. Although the rookie pitcher’s completion of the season is admirable, achieving 10 wins has become somewhat difficult.
Second-year Dong-ju Moon has 8 wins and 8 losses in 23 games, with an ERA of 3.72. There are 7 quality starts.
Having finished the season early, he left a strong impression at this Asian Games and is expected to continue his favor in the Rookie of the Year voting.
