Hanwha’s Lee Tae-yang leaves game after 5 innings, 3 runs, “mild muscle cramp in calf, hamstring”

Hanwha Eagles pitcher Lee Tae-yang came off the mound after five innings of work with a minor ailment.

Lee was replaced after giving up three runs on seven hits with one walk and five strikeouts in five innings as the starting pitcher in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game against the SSG Landers at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Saturday.토토사이트

After giving up a leadoff single to Choo Shin-soo in the first inning, Lee got Choi Ji-hoon to ground out to the pitcher but gave up a double to right field to Choi Jeong. Guillermo Heredia then struck out Park Sung-ho on three pitches to end the first inning without further damage.

In the top of the second, Choi Ju-hwan and Han Yoo-seom gave up back-to-back singles to put runners on first and second with no outs. However, Jeon struck out Jeon Eui-san on three pitches and gave up a single to Kim Min-sik, but the right fielder’s throw to Lee Jin-young kept the game scoreless. Choo Shin-soo then grounded out to the second baseman to end the inning without a run.

In the top of the third, two runs scored. Choi Ji-hoon walked the leadoff batter and gave up first-pitch doubles to Choi Jeong and Heredia. Park Sung-hwan’s sacrifice bunt moved the runners to third, but Choi Ju-hwan grounded out to first base and Han Yoo-seom struck out to end the inning without further damage.

In the top of the fourth, Lee Tae-yang walked Jeon Eui-san, Kim Min-sik, and Choo Shin-soo to record the first triple play of the day, and Han Hwa rallied back to 4-3 in the bottom of the inning to secure the win in the top of the fifth with a double to left field by Choi Ji-hoon, a strikeout by Choi Jung, and a groundout to third base by Heredia.

Total pitch count through five innings: 83 pitches. One more inning was digestible, but the Hanwha bench opted to make a change. With the score 4-3 and one run in hand, Joo Hyun-sang was brought in because he wasn’t fully healthy. “He felt mild muscle cramps in his right calf and left hamstring as he finished pitching the fifth inning, so we made a change based on his physical condition and pitch count,” a Hanwha team official explained.
