Hanwha coach Kim Kyung-moon wins his first game as head coach in six years

Kim Kyung-moon, 66, tasted victory in his first game back in charge of Hanwha after six years.

Hanwha defeated home team KT 8-2 in Suwon on Thursday to end a three-game losing streak. Kim, who previously served as head coach of Doosan-NC, increased his career coaching victories to 897 (774 W, 30 D). Kim stepped down on June 3, 2018, after a 7-8 loss at home to Samsung Electronics. The club fired him, blaming him for the poor performance of the team, which was in last place at the time.

Six years have passed since then. Kim traveled to Suwon after his inauguration as Hanwha manager in Daejeon on March 3 and had dinner with veteran players like Ryu Hyun-jin. Kim, who is now the oldest manager in the game, asked Ahn Chi-hong, who has only played first base and designated hitter this year, “Do you want me to prepare for second base (his former defensive position)?” to which he replied, “Of course.” Against KT on April 4, Ahn went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks and two runs scored as the starting second baseman and fifth hitter. The bottom of the batting order, Choi Jae-hoon (No. 7), Lee Do-yoon (No. 8), and Jang Jin-hyuk (No. 9) each had two hits.

Lotte defeated KIA 6-0 in Gwangju. Starting pitcher Aaron Wilkerson threw a complete game shutout to improve to 5-5 on the season. He threw 108 pitches into the ninth inning, allowing just five hits and four walks while striking out nine. The no-hitter comes nearly two years after KT’s Ko Young-pyo achieved the feat on June 11, 2022, against Lotte in Sajik. Last year, for the first time since the inception of the KBO, there were no complete games. Lotte’s Yoo Kang-nam (three-run homer in the second inning) and Son Ho-young (one-run homer in the eighth) backed Wilkerson with cannon.

Last-place Kiwoom snapped a four-game losing streak with an 11-3 victory over second-place LG in a nightcap. Starting pitcher Enmanuel De 토토사이트 Jesus pitched six innings of one-run ball (unearned) to earn his seventh win of the season (3-3). He tied Kia’s James Nail (7-1) for the league lead in wins.

In the literature, third-place Samsung extended its winning streak to five games with a 3-1 victory over SSG. Koo Ja-uk hit a game-winning two-run double in the eighth inning with the score tied 1-1. Doosan scored three runs in the 10th inning of a 1-1 game in Changwon to beat NC 4-1.

Earlier in the day, the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) announced that it will introduce “PitchCom” early next month, which Major League Baseball (MLB) introduced in 메이저사이트 2022 to combat autograph stealing. PitchCom is an electronic device that tells the catcher what pitch to throw to the pitcher. The catcher wears a transmitter near his arm or knee and presses buttons that indicate the pitch and direction, and the pitcher listens to the voice-translated sign on a receiver attached to his hat. Pitchcom eliminates the need for the catcher to sign to the pitcher with his or her fingers, exposing the other team (second baseman or base coach), and reduces the amount of time the catcher and pitcher spend exchanging signs.
