Hanwha Geopo third baseman Noh Si-hwan (23) shook off his heartache. He broke a long no-hit silence.
Noh Si-hwan broke the no-hit record in the last at-bat in the 9th inning against Daejeon KIA on the 24th the previous day.
He made several quality hits in his earlier at-bats, but he went straight to the fielder. In the second at-bat in the 4th inning, he sent a batted ball to left center, which was caught by KIA center fielder Socrates Brito. In his third at-bat, he walked on base, but failed to break his 43-at-bat record.
However, Noh Si-hwan broke the no-hit record in 44 at-bats. He fired a left-handed solo shot at Jung Hae-young in the 9th inning. Jung Hae-young pulled a 140km fastball that came in high in the middle of the 4th pitch and crossed the left wall. Distance 120m, season 9 home run.
Prior to the game on the 25th, coach Choi Won-ho did not hide his joy, saying, “Roh Si-hwan’s home run is the biggest harvest of yesterday’s game.” He continued, “Even though the batting pace was not good, the batting average was 0.289.안전놀이터
Noh Si-hwan, who must have suffered more than anyone else, also smiled broadly. Noh Si-hwan was delighted, saying, “I wasn’t very conscious of the no-hit record. At the same time, he revealed his feelings so far, saying, “Rather than shrinking, I have more trouble. I went into the game with the mindset of ‘Let’s try to win.
Colleagues were also delighted. Roh Si-hwan smiled, saying, “Until now, my colleagues didn’t talk to me. When I hit a home run and came in, everyone came up and started talking to me. I liked that we could talk now.”
