“I will win unconditionally against Kiwoom.”
Lotte Giants Han Hyeon-hee (30) finally meets her parents’ team. Han Hyun-hee will start the match against Kiwoom Heroes in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 30th.
Han Hyun-hee signed a free agency contract with Lotte ahead of this season for up to 4 billion won for 3+1 years. Returning to his hometown of Busan, he prepared for the season with utmost care from spring camp. He just doesn’t follow his grades. He has 4 wins and 2 losses with an earned run average of 7.56. He pitched in relief against Hanwha on the 26th and recorded 2 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts and no runs in 2⅓ innings. He will be on the mound after a three-day break. 메이저사이트
He also pitches against his own team, Kiwoom. He was named second overall in the first round in 2012 and wore a Heroes uniform for 11 seasons. His career blossomed with the Heroes, recording both hold kings and double-digit victories.
However, in the free agent (FA) market last year, Kiwoom was not active in negotiations with Han Hyun-hee and eventually watched Han Hyun-ui leave.
Han Hyun-hee said at the Lotte joining ceremony last winter, “There are no tough hitters, and it will be fun to win. She never wants to lose against Kiwoom. I will win unconditionally.” And she got to start against her home team, Kiwoom.
Currently, Lotte is on a 7-game winning streak. He is on a 7-game winning streak without hesitation, with pitching harmony at the forefront. The 7th consecutive win on the 28th was the first time in about 11 years. If they can record up to 8 consecutive wins, it will be the first time in 13 years since 2010. At that time, Lotte had 11 consecutive wins. Hyeon-hee Han had to shoulder the heavy burden of challenging for an 8-game winning streak.
What kind of results can Han Hyun-hee’s appearance against her parents’ team produce? Meanwhile, for Kiwoom, Ace Woo-jin An will start. Initially, Jeong Chan-heon was announced as the starter on the 29th, but it was canceled due to rain and An Woo-jin will be on the mound as per the rotation without changing the starting order. An Woo-jin is recording an average ERA of 0.84 in 5 games this season, 2 wins and 1 loss. He gets to face an untouchable-class ace. He is recording an average ERA of 1.89 in three career games against Lotte.
