The KBO League Hanwha Eagles won a reversal in their home game against the LG Twins yesterday.
This broke the losing streak and prevented LG from winning 5 in a row.
Yesterday’s game, which had many comebacks, was held by Hanwha in the early stages.
Lee Seong-gon and Eurogyeol, who joined the first team and played their first game, made a big inning at the end of the second inning.
Hanwha took 4 points first as consecutive timely hits came out in the subsequent lower lineup.
However, LG’s pursuit followed immediately.
They tied the score in the top of the 6th inning, but managed to turn around by scoring 2 more points in the top of the 8th inning.
Hanwha, who was in danger, won a reversal by winning 3 points at the end of the 8th inning.
Hanwha’s rookie Kim Seo-hyun, who also stood out in yesterday’s game, recorded his first earned run since his debut, but struck out four.
Based on the club’s own record, it also showed the potential to record a maximum speed of 159.5 km per hour.
Kim Seo-hyun caught attention when she threw a ball that exceeded 160 km/h during her youth national team.
Even after entering his professional career, he is showing his fastball in the upper 150 km/h without regret.
According to the official record, the fastest ball thrown by Kim Seo-hyun was 157.9 km per hour against Doosan on the 19th.
He is the fourth all-time domestic pitcher.
Kim Seo-hyun, who is living up to the fans’ expectations that were focused on her even before her debut, is getting more confident with each match.

I may fall once or twice, but I will continue to stick to the first team and show good results, and when (fans) go home I want you to always go down the path of smiling, so I work harder and help the team more…”]
Recently, the KBO league is heating up with competition for ‘fastball’.
It was Hanwha Eagles player Moon Dong-ju who ignited this competition.
This is the ball I threw against Chan-ho 메이저사이트Park of the Kia Tigers on the 12th.
It was 159 km per hour on the electronic board, but the KBO official record was 160.1 km per hour.
It was the fastest speed recorded by a Korean player in Korean professional baseball.
Moon Dong-ju, who was a rookie who received great expectations last year, but was unable to properly demonstrate his skills due to frequent injuries, is showing his true face this year.
[Moon Dong-joo/Hanwha Eagles player/Last 13th/YouTube Eagles TV: “Since I was really young, I thought I should throw 160km per hour, and since that goal has been achieved, it seems appropriate to slowly re-establish a (new) goal. I can win, but I think it’s right to focus.”]
“Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun are strong” Hanwha fans have high expectations for these two players.
The fastball competition has spread outside of Hanwha.
Before Kiwoom’s Ahn Woo-jin and Hanwha’s two rookies appeared, he was the leading fastball player in the KBO League.
They welcomed the appearance of two powerful juniors, saying, “It’s a good thing for Korean baseball.”
At the same time, he expressed his competitive spirit, saying that he wanted to throw 170 km per hour.
I once won the Olympic gold medal and WBC runner-up, but in recent years, Korean baseball, which has shown a lot of disappointing figures, the absence of a strong pitcher in the last WBC was pointed out as one of the problems.
There have already been quite a few players in the US and Japan who have been throwing fastballs of 160 km/h since several years ago.
Korea is belatedly standing at the door of the 160 km/h club.
