Hanwha’s ‘big gun’ Noh Si-hwan’s bat is on fire again. He hit his 20th home run of the season to become the sole leader in home runs, surpassing the SSG.
Noh hit a solo shot to right field in the top of the fourth inning against the Kiwoom Heroes of the 2023 KBO League at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 25th, trailing 0-3. He took a 150 kilometres per hour fastball from Kiwoom’s Jang Jae-young and sent it over the fence.
With the home run, Noh became the first batter to reach the 20-homer plateau for the season. The home run, which came six games after his last one against Lotte on the 6th, revived his bat. The third overall pick in the second round in 2019 hit 12 homers in 2020 and 18 in 2021, and after hitting just six last year, he has become a big hitter this year as his power has grown.토토사이트
Noh jumped to sole possession of the home run lead, overtaking Choi Jeong (19), who had been the joint leader until the previous day.
