Moon Dong-ju (20), the signature pitcher of the Hanwha Eagles, failed to win.
Moon Dong-ju started the match against the KIA Tigers at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 27th. He pitched perfectly until the 3rd inning, but was blocked by the concentration of the KIA batting line. His performance was 5 hits, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and 5 runs in 5 innings. 메이저놀이터
He pitched flawlessly until the third inning. He tied nine batters tight. A fastball of over 150 km, a high-speed slider, and a curve were properly mixed, and the KIA hitters helplessly retreated. The batting line also supported 2 points with Kim Tae-yeon’s solo shot in the 1st inning and a sacrifice fly in the 4th inning.
However, he was beaten by KIA hitters in the 4th inning. He got a heavy hit from Park Chan-ho, who was in full swing. It was the root cause of the walk in the match with Kim Do-young that followed. He struck out Na Seong-beom, but hit Hyung-woo Choi and made the bases loaded.
He caught Socrates with a ground ball in front of the pitcher, but it didn’t make him sick and left a bad aftertaste. In the end, the slider first pitch thrown to the sophisticated Kim Seon-bin was a timely hit with 2 RBIs that missed the 3rd interval, allowing a tie.
In the 5th inning, he blocked it with a tripartite offense and continued pitching with a sense of stability. However, a 153km fastball thrown to lead batter Kim Do-young in the top of the 6th inning turned into a right-handed hit and called for a crisis. Na Seong-beom also allowed a hit that missed between 1st and 2nd base while throwing a breaking ball without catching it with an advantageous count.
He threw an outside fastball against seasoned Choi Hyeong-woo, but was hit with a 2-RBI double that cut through left-center and gave up the game. After allowing three hits in a row, a replacement sign came out from the Hanwha bench, and he finished the mound as it was.
It was a regrettable 76-ball steel plate. Moon Dong-ju will now take part in the Asian Games in Hangzhou with three weeks of recharging time after starting against LG in Jamsil on September 2nd. He has pitched 114⅓ innings to this day. He approaches the 120 inning limit in his next game.
In particular, if he wins all 2 games, including that day, he could step on the 10-win high. However, 10 wins became difficult as he failed to win. Throwing well and getting hit seems like a homework to be solved. On this day, the highest fastball speed was 155 km, and the average speed was 150 km.
