Na Kyun-an → Anderson → An Woo-jin… Sanchez without Daejin luck, will the official ‘start = team victory’ continue?￼
Hanwha Eagles ‘good luck’ foreign pitcher Ricardo Sanchez (26) meets another ace-class starting pitcher. It remains to be seen whether the uptrend will continue.
On the 30th, Hanwha will play the first game of a three-week series against Kiwoom Heroes at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park. It is a rematch with Kiwoom in about two months after the opening two consecutive matches. Sanchez was announced as the starting pitcher in Game 1, which is important for suppressing the baseline. 메이저사이트
Sanchez entered as a substitute for Birch Smith and gave up only one run in 14 innings in the last three games he started. His ERA was 0.64.
Sanchez, who is still undergoing pitch count management, has not pitched more than six innings. However, the strength of being a ‘left-handed’ pitcher is common, as he has excellent control, allowing only one walk in 14 innings, and uses a four-seam fastball (fastball) that shoots up to 150 km per hour. Not only Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho, but also broadcast commentators who watched Sanchez’s game evaluated him as a ‘KBO league-type foreign pitcher’.
He is, above all, an energetic player. He seems to have already finished adapting to the KBO League. He jokes around with his colleagues with his humorous expression, and is passionate about understanding Korean culture. The way he took off his hat and greeted him behind the sand dunes was like a ‘longevity outsider’. After the mound on the 23rd, when he blocked the KIA lineup, which had a good hitting feeling, with 5 scoreless innings, he passed the ball to his teammates, saying, “I asked veteran pitchers for advice on the timing of the breakout ball, and it matched well, so I pitched well.” seemed ‘Former’ Smith has received criticism for responding with vulgar language to fans criticizing his glass body. Hanwha has changed foreign players well.
Sanchez’s fourth appearance is also of interest. Above all, it is interesting that the opposing pitcher is Ahn Woo-jin, who has the best pitch in the current league. He recorded an average ERA of 1.88 in 10 games he appeared in, and is the pitcher who ranks second in this category.
Ahn Woo-jin struggled with 4 hits and 3 walks against the KT Wiz on the 24th and scored 3 runs. He was unable to prevent the team from losing 1-4. On the other hand, Sanchez won all three games he pitched in.
Sanchez stood on a mound with a strong pitcher from the match against the Samsung Lions on the 11th, his first appearance in the KBO League. At that time, the Samsung selection was Albert Suarez. On the 17th, in the match against the Lotte Giants, he faced off against Na Gyun-an, the ‘local ace’. On the 23rd, the KIA game faced Sean Anderson, who was in charge of the opening game selection.
Sanchez was not pushed by the opponent’s starting pitcher in all three previous games. In the match against KIA on the 23rd, when he won his first personal victory, he overpowered Anderson, who was shaken by his first ball game.
The opponent this time is Ahn Woo-jin. He was strong enough to only give 2 points, blocking a total of 18 innings in 3 games against Hanwha in the 2021-2022 season. Attention is focusing on whether Sanchez will continue his good energy.
