The 2023 season, 17 years after that.

It is highly likely that Hanwha Eagles players will win MVP and Rookie of the Year at the same time.

In the home game against Doosan held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 12th, this probability increased even more. Hanwha won 6-1 on the day and succeeded in escaping from 5 consecutive losses.

MVP candidate Noh Si-hwan hit the final home run and Rookie of the Year candidate Moon Dong-ju won the starter, making a big success in the two-hit game.

Roh Si-hwan, who started as the third baseman, hit a two-run home run in the first inning against Doosan Gwak Bin. Season 27. He widened the gap with second place SSG Choi Jeong (21 home runs) to 6 and set out to solidify himself as the home run king. Roh Si-hwan put a wedge into the game with two RBIs and doubles that hit the top of the middle wall against pitcher Kim Myung-shin, who had changed in the 7th inning, where he ran away 3-1 with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases.

It was the first home run in two games since the 3 home runs in the 1 game against KT on the 9th. Beyond the 31 home runs of Kim Tae-gyun, the home run king in 2008, the birth of a home run king belonging to Hanwha for the first time in 15 years is gaining momentum.

Noh Si-hwan is running first in RBIs (75 RBIs) and slugging percentage (0.576) as well as home runs. It is the most outstanding performance among the league hitters. A fierce competition for MVP is expected with NC Dinos Eric Peddy, who ranks first in most wins (15 wins) and average ERA (1.97).

Starter Moon Dong-joo won his 7th win (7 losses) of the season in 4 games with 4 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 6 innings with a fastball of up to 155km and a curveball with a big drop.

By lowering his ERA to 3.28, he rose to third place among local starters following Kiwoom An Woo-jin and KT Ko Young-pyo.

Rookie of the year rival KIA Yoon Young-cheol, who started against Sajik Lotte that day, slowed down with 8 hits and 5 runs in 4⅔innings, failing to continue his recent 4-game winning streak. 7 wins and 4 losses, ERA 4.13. He is a candidate to compete with Moon Dong-ju for rookie of the year until the end of the season.

There are contenders for Rookie of the Year, such as Lotte’s Kim Min-seok and LG’s Park Myung-geun, but Moon Dong-joo is the most likely candidate for Rookie of the Year at this point. The inning limit declared by the club at the beginning of the season is a variable, but Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho recently said that it can be corrected according to ‘medical opinion’, so the possibility of completing the season cannot be ruled out.
