Hanwha Eagles Break Scoring Record

The Hanwha Eagles defeated the Lotte Giants 16-1. Those scores are not unusual in a KBO game. Except Hanwha scored all 16 of their runs in the third inning breaking a KBO record for most runs scored, RBIs and hits in an inning. Mercifully the game was called after 6.5 innings because of rain.

Sloppy fielding made eight of the runs unearned. Ji-Seong-Jun opened the inning with a walk and then got two more hits before the inning ended, driving in three runs. Jung Eon-Won drove in five runs in the inning with a three run homer and two run single. Jared Hoying mashed a three run homer. Only in the KBO can you have this kind of offense.

With the win the Eagles improved to 7-7 while the Giants dropped to 7-7.
