5 doubles + 2 home runs…Peraza ends Hanwha’s foreign-base hitter brutality

The Hanwha Eagles’ new foreign-born slugger, Jonathan Peraza, raised expectations for the season with a multi-hit game in his first KBO game and a multi-homer game in his second.

Hanwha won 8-4 against the LG Twins in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League on Thursday at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, South Korea. Peraza, who started in right field and batted second, hit back-to-back home runs and went 2-for-3 with three RBIs to lead the team to victory.

After being retired on a fielder’s choice in his first at-bat against LG starter Chan-kyu Lim in the top of the first inning, Peraza took a four-pitch, 124 mph changeup from Lim on a one-pitch, two-strike at-bat with no outs in the top of the fourth inning for a solo home run over the right field wall. It was Peraza’s first home run in the KBO.

He added another in his next at-bat. In the top of the sixth inning, after Hanwha had rallied from 2-1 down, Peraza led off with a solo home run, this time over the right-field wall on a low 110-kilometer (km/h) curveball from Lim Chan-kyu. It was his first back-to-back home run of the season.

After the game, Peraza said, “I’m happy with today’s result. I’m happy to have hit a home run and I’m happy to be able to make history with the team,” he said. “I’m very honored and happy to be able to hit a home run in this big stadium, it’s my first 카지노 experience playing baseball in front of this many people, and I tried to enjoy it,” he said.

When asked about the secret behind his increase in home runs over the past three years, he said, “Nothing else, I’ve just been working hard and training consistently. I think I’m becoming a better player as I gain experience. I think I’m getting better as I get more experience.” “My biggest goal is to help the team,” said Peraza. I hope my energy can help the teammates,” he said.

Hanwha didn’t have the success they expected last season with foreign hitters Ryan O’Grady and Nick Williams. Hanwha hasn’t had much luck with foreign bats in recent years, so the team had high hopes for Peraza this year, and if he continues to perform as well as he did in the opening series, Hanwha will have nothing to lose.
