Moon Seung-won pitched as a starting pitcher in an away game against Doosan Bears held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 27th. It was the first return to the starting lineup in 117 days since the KT Wiz match on May 2nd (7 runs lost in 3⅓ innings). Moon Seung-won moved to the bullpen after the beginning of the season.
Then, as Park Jong-hoon’s sluggish performance left a hole in the team’s starting rotation, another opportunity came to Moon Seung-won. Even this wasn’t easy. Moon Seung-won was predicted to be the starting pitcher for the Incheon NC Dinos game on the 22nd and 23rd, but the game was canceled for two consecutive days due to rain. In the end, the pitching date was delayed, and it was only in the game against Doosan on the 27th that he was able to pitch the pitch he had prepared.
A head-to-head match with Doosan’s ‘ace’ Raul Alcantara. However, SSG hitters shook Alcantara first. In the beginning of the first inning, the opponent’s defensive mistake and Park Seong-han’s timely hit started with two runs, but Moon Seung-won threw difficult pitches every inning.
After two outs in the bottom of the first inning, he gave up the bases with two consecutive hits and a walk, increasing the number of pitches. He caught Yang Seok-hwan with a ground ball, but he conceded one run without completing the double hit. He finished the first inning with difficulty by handling Kang Seung-ho with a ground ball to second base.
The second inning ended with a tripartite offense, but in the third inning, lead batter Sue-bin was allowed a hit. Then, Kim Jae-ho got a long hit and was able to secure 2nd and 3rd base. He caught José Rojas with an infield fly, but allowed Yang Eui-ui to score a ground ball to tie the game 2-2.
At the beginning of the 4th inning, SSG again took a 4-2 lead when Ha Jae-hoon hit a two-run home run, but it didn’t last long. In the bottom of the fourth inning, Moon Seung-Won was shaken again. The first batter, Kang Seung-ho, allowed an infield hit and the runner reached base, and Park Joon-young hit the base with a long hit and returned to second and third base safely. When Ahn Seung-han hit a timely one RBI on the first pitch, Moon Seung-won came down the mound with two runners left.
Lim Joon-seop, who pitched in relief, let in a successor runner, and Moon Seung-won’s runs increased to 4 points. The SSG bench prevented additional runs after another pitcher change, but Moon Seung-won’s return to the start ended with an early rout with 7 hits, 2 strikeouts, 1 walk and 4 runs in 3 innings, promising the next one.
