In the 12th episode, only Hanwha fans who were desperate for victory broke out in their heart

The Hanwha Eagles showed their longing for victory against the LG Twins in Jamsil on May 20th with a tenacious pitcher’s battle that went into the 12th overtime. However, in the early 12th inning, outfielder Eurogyeol’s futile sacrifice bunt failure, which came from a turnaround opportunity, poured cold water on the team atmosphere. It was necessary to have a run that could prevent a double batting situation, but when the catcher came forward to catch the batted ball, the decision to stop running for a while led to the worst result.

Hanwha recorded a 1-1 draw in the 12th inning against LG in Jamsil on May 20th. With the draw that day, Hanwha maintained 9th place in the league with 13 wins, 3 draws and 23 losses.

Hanwha,메이저놀이터 who was aiming to escape from two consecutive losses, put Lee Tae-yang, an “alternative starter,” on the starting mound. Lee Tae-yang blocked the LG lineup, which boasts a powerful bat, with 1 hit, 2 strikeouts and 1 walk in 3.2 innings.

Hanwha also succeeded in scoring the first goal. In the beginning of the 4th inning, Hanwha took the lead with Lee Do-yoon’s 1 RBI double at the right time in the chance to get 2 out, 1st and 2nd base, created by lead hitter Chae Eun-seong’s double and Kwon Kwang-min’s walk. However, the result of not making additional points after that finally caught up with the ankle.

On this day, Hanwha, which operated the mound as ‘Bullpen Day’, put Yoon Dae-kyung on the mound following Lee Tae-yang. And at the end of the 6th inning, Kim Ki-joong was put on the mound, but Hanwha was in danger of being loaded safely. Kim Ki-joong was replaced by Kang Jae-min after striking out Kim Hyun-soo.

Kang Jae-min allowed Park Dong-won to sacrifice a tying ball in a situation with one company loaded. However, Kang Jae-min prevented an additional run by striking out the follow-up hitter Oh Ji-hwan.

After that, both teams continued to struggle. In the beginning of the 7th inning, Hanwha swallowed up the regret by stepping back with a foul ball from first baseman against pitcher Park Myeong-geun, who had changed Chae Eun-seong, at the opportunity to load bases with two outs.

At the end of the 8th inning, LG missed the opportunity as Park Dong-won struck out on a swing and Oh Ji-hwan stepped back with a ground ball in front of the third baseman at the chance of one company on first and second base at the end of the 8th inning. Then, at the end of the 9th inning, lead hitter Shin Min-jae hit and follow-up hitter Jung Joo-hyun judged for obstruction of the bat, and the opportunity to finish 1st and 2nd base safely came.

However, after Kim Min-seong stepped down due to double play, Park Hae-min also stepped down with a floating ball from center fielder, and the game went into overtime.

In the beginning of the 11th inning, Hanwha took the first and second bases safely with a hit by lead batter Park Jung-hyun and a walk by Choi Jae-hoon. However, after Kwon Kwang-min’s sacrifice bunt failed, Hanwha failed to score due to Lee Do-yoon and Lee Won-seok’s follow-up misses.

At the beginning of the 12th inning, the last chance came to Hanwha. In the beginning of the 12th inning, Hanwha reached first base safely with an infield hit by Jeong Eun-won, the lead hitter. After watching the two balls, the follow-up hitter tried a sacrifice bunt on the third ball.

However, the sacrifice bunt ball landed right in front of home plate. At this moment, it was a pity that the Euro decision was the main base. The moment catcher Park Dong-won came out quickly and tried to catch the ball, it overlapped with Eurogyeol’s first base run direction. For a moment, Yugyeol hesitated and stopped running. This led to a situation where Park Dong-won opened the way and made it easier for him to play double-sided.

According to KBO rules, if a catcher trying to handle a batted ball and a batter runner trying to run to first base collide, it is generally considered that there was no interference with defense or running, and no judgment is made. If the malicious intent is severe, obstruction of running or defensive interference can be declared, but natural collisions lead to an in-play situation.

If Yoo Gyeol moved along the normal running route and overlapped with Park Dong Won, there was a possibility that the opponent’s defense would not be connected smoothly and avoid double play. In this case, if there was no malicious intent, it could be recognized as normal play. However, thanks to Yugyeol, who stopped running for a while, Park Dong-won was able to successfully deal with double-strikes comfortably.

In the end, when it became two outs for a moment, Hanwha finished the attack in the top of the 12th with no points. Veteran left-hander Jung Woo-ram kept the draw after two innings of reverse pitching, but it was the result of the upset of Hanwha fans who filled Jamsil Stadium that day and desperately shouted for the team’s victory. Above all, it remains a deep regret for Eurogyeol’s care and consideration to pave the way for an instant in the 12th inning.
