Is there a sure way to overcome fear?

For Park Jeong-hyeon (22), the right pitcher was a painful opponent this season. After the opening, the number of hits that came out after facing each other 9 times was 0. Considering the 7 times facing the under pitcher, it was only 16 at-bats without a hit.

He has been consistently hitting hits against left-handed pitchers, but attacking right-handed pitchers has not been easy.

Park Jung-hyun explained, “The breaking ball felt difficult.”

Park Jung-hyun’s fear of a right pitcher escaped the moment the team needed it.

In the bottom of the 3rd inning, where he was losing 0-2, he came to bat as the lead batter and faced Doosan right-hander Kim Dong-ju. Kim Dong-ju threw the ball up to 148km that day, showing off a not-so-bad pitching feeling.

After being hit by 2S first, it seemed that the ‘targeting the right pitcher’ would fail again this time. However, he calmly picked out a ball and hit the 4th pitch as it was. The ball went over the left wall, and Park Jung-hyun clenched his fists.

The atmosphere of Hanwha came alive. After narrowing the score by one point, Jeong Eun-won’s walk, Noh Si-hwan’s hit, and Chae Eun-sung’s sacrifice fly made the score 2-2.

Hanwha, who brought the flow back, gave up 3 points in the 4th inning, but balanced it by scoring 3 points again in the 6th inning.

Hanwha, who added two runs at the end of the 8th inning, succeeded in winning their first home game by winning 7-6. Hanwha coach Carlos Subero achieved 100 wins in his personal career. After the game, coach Subero said,토토사이트 “I think it was a victory achieved by both the coach and the players as one.”

Park Jung-hyun explained the home run situation, “I knew that (Kim Dong-ju) was a good pitcher with a slider. The fast ball was also fast, so I thought I was going to go for a fast ball, but the curve came in.

A hitless escape against right-handed pitchers. Park Jung-hyun smiled and said, “It’s not to the extent that I’ve gained confidence, but I think I’ll be able to rebound a little with today’s opportunity.”
