Ricardo Sanchez (26, Hanwha Eagles) returned as a ‘victory fairy.’ Sanchez pitched 6 scoreless innings against the LG Twins in Jamsil, Seoul on the 2nd, taking the lead in breaking the team’s 8-game losing streak.
It was only in 10 games since the NC Dinos match on June 23 that he had a scoreless game. Until then, Sanchez had recorded 4 wins, no losses, and an average ERA of 1.48 in 8 games. Hanwha recorded 7 wins and 1 draw in the games in which he appeared. However, there were severe ups and downs in both July (average ERA 6.00) and August (average ERA 5.14). Some even said that his pitching habits were read. He only allowed double-digit hits in three games.
The LG game on the 2nd was different. The ball coming from the left-handed three quarters overwhelmed LG’s left-handed batters, including Park Hae-min and Kim Hyun-soo, except for Hong Chang-gi (2 hits). Shin Min-jae hit a double to left field in the third inning, but it was only a lucky hit made by his quick feet.
After the game, Sanchez said, “Today, I had good control of each pitch, especially where I wanted it more. Catcher Park Sang-eon’s lead was also really good. He knew what kind of pitch I wanted to throw, and led me with confidence. A catcher like that leads the home team. “If you can protect the plate, it really helps the pitcher,” he said.
Sanchez said, “I prepared for my pitch by training myself mentally and physically to throw well. I went into the game with the mindset of ‘I will control what I can.’ “I did it. All the team members also paid attention behind the scenes,” he said. 카지노
In the game against LG, where Hanwha escaped its 8th consecutive loss, Sanchez was unable to secure an individual victory. In the 8th inning, bullpen Jang Si-hwan allowed a tying 3-run hit to Park Hae-min, but Lee Jin-young’s timely hit in the 9th gave them the win. Sanchez said, “The team’s victory is the most important, and a winning pitcher cannot do it alone.”
Instead, do not lose your goal until the end. Sanchez said he wanted to win 10 games. He still has only 6 wins (5 losses), but this record is only possible if he wins all the games in the remaining schedule. Sanchez expressed his determination, saying, “I am a player with a strong competitive spirit. I go on the mound with the intention of winning every game. With that in mind, I will challenge for 10 wins for the remainder of the season.”
