The mixed joys and sorrows of the three young fireballers, what was different

Moon Dong-ju, who was more perfect than expected, and Kang Hyo-jong, an unexpected rookie.

I definitely had expectations that I would show some growth this season, but I didn’t expect it to be this much. If it is limited to the pitches shown that day, it would be safe to say that he is the best right-hander in the league along with Ahn Woo-jin (Kiwoom). This is the story of Moon Dong-ju, pitcher for the second year of the Hanwha Eagles토토사이트

Moon Dong-ju perfectly filled the first button of the 2023 season. Moon Dong-joo took the mound as a starter in the last game of the three-game series against the Samsung Lions held in Daegu on the 6th, and led the team to an 8-1 victory with perfect pitching, 5 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts, and no runs. It was his first win of the season and Hanwha’s first win of the season.

Although he is a rookie who debuted as a professional player last year, the match on this day was inevitably burdensome. The team was in the midst of an opening three-game losing streak, and it was his first appearance of the season. Because he didn’t show as much as he expected last year, a lot of people’s attention was focused on this first game.

However, as if that kind of burden was the problem, he sprayed the perfect ball. Top speed 159km. I knew the ball was fast. What was important was the pitching. Fireballer’s fate, the problem of control. not exposed at all. It was great that he had one walk but no walks. As I had planned, I became the first player. A ball that can easily exceed 150 km. It’s hard to hit any type.

After two outs at the end of the first inning, Lee Won-seok and Kang Min-ho gave away the only hit of the day, four balls, but they did not shake. And after that, he treated 13 batters in a row.

Moon Dong-joo’s shocking pitching was impressive, but starting pitcher Kang Hyo-jong, who led the LG Twins to victory at Gocheok Dome, was also noteworthy. The Gocheok match also drew attention for the 2021 first-choice Kang Hyo-jong and Kiwoom Jang Jae-young’s confrontation. The result was Kang Hyo-jong’s victory by decision. Because the team won and became the winning pitcher.

Kang Hyo-jong also pitched 5 scoreless innings. Unlike Moon Dong-ju, I felt sorry for the first ball. He allowed 3 walks and 1 walk. However, unlike a rookie-level player, he had excellent crisis management skills. Basically, the power of the curve and slider was good with a fastball of 150 km. Even if his fastball was a bit lacking, he was able to survive because he became a breaking ball during a crisis.

Unlike Moon Dong-ju and Jang Jae-young, he is a player who has received relatively less attention, but considering that his appearance in the first team was only one game last year and his first appearance of the season, his performance exceeded expectations. He feels like he could become a right-handed rival with Moon Dong-ju if he puts less tension in the next game and pays more attention to his control.

‘900 million people’ Jang Jae-young left a regret. It seems that Kiwoom is trying to develop as a starter this season, but he was pushed back by Mun Dong-ju and Kang Hyo-jong in both the ball game and game management. 4 innings, 3 runs lost. There were 5 walks.

In the second inning, Oh Ji-hwan was allowed to steal consecutive bases in vain, and when I saw the scene where he dedicated 1 point with a sacrifice fly, I felt that he was in a hurry to throw the ball. However, the ball he threw with such concentration was too shaky. The pitch is not inferior to the two, but baseball is not a sport in which the game is decided only by the speed of the ball.
