Hanwha Moon Dong-ju, 1 run in 7⅓ innings… Defeat the leader LG
Professional baseball Hanhwa defeated the leader LG thanks to the strong pitching of starter Moon Dong-ju.
Doosan defeated SSG and ran a 9-game winning streak.
Moon Dong-joo’s fastball with a maximum speed of 156 km/h spews fire.
Let’s mix the curve and adjust the pace, and the LG batting line, which ranks first in the team’s batting average, can’t beat the pulse.
It was the 8th inning that a crisis came to Moon Dong-ju, who continued his scoreless march with 5 strikeouts.
Shin Min-jae’s missed ball became a hit, and Moon Dong-ju, who threw 108 pitches, the highest number of pitches, had to come down the mound.
Kim Bum-soo, who came up next, blocked the crisis well, and Moon Dong-ju only scored 1 point.
Hanwha, who kept the two points earned by Moon Hyun-bin’s double in the first inning, defeated LG 2-1. Moon Dong-ju finished the first half with six wins of the season.
<Moon Dong-ju/Hanwha Pitcher> “I tried to think that a missed hit was ‘my pitch is good’, and since it is not easy to get the same consecutive hits, I tried to win.”
Doosan was dragged 0-1 by SSG with Choo Shin-soo’s leadoff home run in the first inning and Kim Gwang-hyeon’s scoreless pitching in 6⅓ innings.
However, after Kim Gwang-hyun went down in the 7th inning, Doosan, who seized the opportunity, overturned the game with Park Joon-young’s 2 RBI double.
In the 8th inning, Yang Eui-ji’s wedge solo shot exploded, and Doosan defeated SSG 4-1 and ran for 9 consecutive wins in 5 years.
KIA succeeded in reversing by tying up the throwing error of Samsung pitcher Won Tae-in and the ball that hit the body in the 5th inning, behind 1-2, and then kept the lead by one point and ran 6 consecutive wins.
Kiwoom showed the league’s first ‘triple play’ this season, but lost 3-4 to KT and fell into a 6-game losing streak.
