The LG Twins defeated the Hanwha Eagles 8-2 at the opening game of the 2024 KBO League

Shin Min-jae hit a timely two-run first against Ryu, making two hits and three RBIs from four times at bat. Top hitter Park Hae-min had two hits, one RBI, one run and three steals from four times at bat, including a finishing hit against Ryu. Hong Chang-ki had a decisive two-run homer.

Ryu joined the Hanwha Eagles in 2006, and played for seven seasons until 2012, before moving to the U.S.A. After playing well with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays, he returned to his former team Hanwha Eagles this year. He signed an eight-year contract worth up to 17 billion won (17 million U.S. dollars).

In his return to the KBO league for the first time in 12 years and the opening game of the regular season, Ryu became a losing pitcher by allowing six hits, three walks, and five runs (two earned) during three ⅔ innings. After two outs in the fourth inning, Ryu failed to finish the inning due to a fatal defense error, and suffered three hits in concentration before collapsing. A former “LG killer,” Ryu tasted bitter taste in his return match.

Park Hae-min, who started the game as the first center fielder, greeted Ryu on the mound as he entered the batter’s box as a cleanup hitter in the bottom of the first inning. It was an unexpected move.

“Our players thought a lot about it. What should I do? I talked with Ji-hwan, Hyun-soo and Dong-won. But they came back from shining Korea, so I was the leadoff hitter, and I decided to greet them. The rest of the players went out and worked hard. I’m really grateful that they shone for our country. With this respect, all of our players talked together and I came to greet them,” he explained.

When asked how he felt about Ryu’s showdown with Ryu, Park said, “His ball control is so good that he throws it towards the edge of the borderline is amazing. Not only fast balls but also breaking ball curves and sliders. When I saw left-handed pitchers throw changeups to left-handed hitters, I felt that he was an amazing pitcher.”

He grounded out to shortstop in the first inning and was out due to a fly ball to left field in the second inning with two outs. He hit his first fastball with runners at first and third bases with two outs in the fourth inning, making a timely hit with an RBI, and was the final hit of the game.

Park Hae-min said, “I didn’t throw any fastballs at the second batter’s box, so I prepared with anticipation that fastballs would come this time. And since I saw breaking balls at the front batter’s box, let’s not miss the fastballs. Since I had good ball control, I thought it would be disadvantageous if the count was concentrated, and I made a positive result.”

Park successfully stole three bases on the day. He stole second and third bases consecutively in the sixth inning. He also expressed his desire to become the king of stealing in the offseason. “The coach told me to take care of myself even before the game. The coach wanted to increase the success rate of stealing this year, but I was able to make a positive move,” he said.

After hitting a timely hit in the fourth inning, he stole second base with the first pitch against Ryu at bat by Hong Chang-ki. Ryu, who rarely allows stealing, successfully stole second base.

Park Hae-min said, “I didn’t expect a breaking ball, but I thought there would be good results if I moved at the first pitch. Also, I thought it would be better to move quickly for the sake of the batter, so I moved from the first pitch.”
