Moon Dong-ju took the mound as a starting pitcher in the 2023 KBO League LG match at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 3rd, and recorded 11 hits, two walks, two strikeouts, and three runs in four ⅓ innings.
He was replaced in the fifth inning with one out and runners on first and second bases with one out, leading 5-3, and the victory failed. He had 105 pitches and had consecutive hits after allowing home runs, forcing the Hanwha bench to replace him with two outs left in the winning requirement.
There were a lot of early pitches. He threw 82 pitches in the first three innings with 33 pitches in the first inning, 17 pitches in the second inning, and 32 pitches in the third inning. In the end, he finished the game without overcoming the last crisis in the fifth inning.
In the first inning, in a crisis with two outs and runners on first and second bases, Moon Bo-kyung allowed a timely hit to the right in the full count, giving up the first run. In the second inning, he was driven to the first and second bases after two outs, and allowed Kim Hyun-soo a right-handed hit that brushed the first baseman’s mitts and fell to the side of the second baseman, allowing one run.
In the third inning, Park Hae-min struck out with a 155km fastball in the full count with two outs and runners on first and second bases. In the fourth inning, he overcame the crisis of scoring rights with two outs and runners on second base. However, after one out in the fifth inning, he hit a solo home run by Oh Ji-hwan and reached first and second base with consecutive hits.
As a result, Moon Dong-ju, who recorded 160.1km of KBO’s official ball speed in April, finished the season with 8 wins, 8 losses, 3.72 ERA and 95 strikeouts in 23 games this season. The Hanwha club imposed an inning limit (130 innings) to protect Moon Dong-ju’s shoulder and elbow. The regular season is 120 innings.
Moon Dong-ju pitched four ⅓ innings in his last appearance, reaching 118 ⅔ innings. Moon Dong-ju will be excluded from the first division entry and will rest until the Asian Games national team’s call-up training at the end of September to take care of his body. If you throw about 10 innings in the Asian Games, it becomes 130 innings.
A season that leaves a lot to be desired. Moon Dong-ju said, “It’s my last time, so I wanted to show you a lot of good things…”I think I’m very disappointed,” he said. “I threw it as if it was the last time in each episode.”
Finishes the season early with 120 innings limit. “Even if I had a career high season, I think I would be disappointed,” Moon Dong-joo said. “I want to help my team win, but I think I should live with gratitude because the club also decided with consideration for me.”
Moon said he did not set a record goal for this season. He scored himself, saying, “So far, I haven’t been injured and haven’t missed the starting rotation, so I’m 100 points.”
Will Moon Dong-joo’s Rookie of the Year award, which ended the season with more than 30 games left in the regular season, be a strong candidate. KIA rookie Yoon Young-chul is a strong competitor. Yoon Young-chul won his eighth victory against Incheon SSG on the 2nd by allowing three runs in five innings.
He has eight wins and five losses, an ERA of 4.13 and 59 strikeouts in 20 games in his first year of debut. He has played 98 innings and is about to reach 100 innings. Yoon Young-chul will achieve 10 wins in his first year of debut if he adds two more wins. If you continue to throw the rotation until the end of the season, you can take the mound in five to six games. It seems likely that he will achieve 10 wins. The symbolic meaning of 10 wins is great.
Moon Dong-ju has a WAR (contribution to victory over substitute) of 2.25, based on Sports2i. Yoon Young-chul has WAR 1.26. If Yoon Young-chul records 10 wins, the Rookie of the Year competition will be hard to predict.
