‘Even after throwing a 160km fastball…’ Ball-strike ratio 1:1 Hanwha Moon Dong-ju, fastballs are useless if the precision is low

Hanwha starter Moon Dong-ju, who threw a 160km fastball but couldn’t cross the final hurdle, had to come down from the mound without completing the 5th inning.

The Hanwha Eagles visited Jamsil Stadium on the 19th to play a weekend three-game series against the LG Twins. Starting pitcher Moon Dong-ju finished his final inspection by pitching in the bullpen before climbing to the mound. The baseball, which left Moon Dong-ju’s hand with a strong cheering sound, was heavily stuck in the catcher’s mitt.

It was against SSG Landers on the 13th, which was the previous appearance. Moon Dong-ju collapsed with 7 hits, 4 walks, 5 runs and 7 runs in 2.1 innings. Before the game, coach Choi Won-ho emphasized a head-to-head match against Moon Dong-ju.

The start was good. Except for allowing Moon Bo-kyung to walk in the 1st and 2nd innings, Moon Dong-ju, who had been blocking LG’s lineup with a powerful pitch, suddenly shook in the 3rd inning. After allowing consecutive hits to Kim Min-seok and Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki seemed to overcome the crisis by striking out a grounder and Moon Seong-joo.

However, he allowed Kim Hyeon-soo to walk, causing a full base crisis. In the following game with Austin, Moon Dong-ju, who allowed a turnaround with a timely hit, allowed the follow-up hitter Oh Ji-hwan to walk again, but escaped from the bases loaded crisis by turning Moon Bo-kyung into a tiger hit.

On the other hand, Hanwha, who had a chance to turn the bases loaded with two outs in the fourth inning, could not lighten Moon Dong-ju’s shoulders as Park Sang-eon struck out on a swing.

Moon Dong-ju, who had been shaken by allowing walks and come-from-behind hits following consecutive hits in the previous inning, regained his composure and turned the three LG batters, Park Dong-won, Kim Min-seong, and Park Hae-min, into regular hits in the fourth inning.

Moon Dong-ju took the mound in the 5th inning. Leading batter Hong Chang-ki went on base with an infield hit. When Oh Ji-hwan, the follow-up hitter, walked, coach Park Seung-min climbed the mound with the ball and put Moon Dong-ju down.

Moon Dong-ju, who recorded 86 pitches that day, was replaced for protection. Moon Dong-ju, who wanted to make up for the sluggish performance of 2.1 innings and 7 runs in the previous game, headed for the dugout with a sad expression.

Recorded 4 hits, 4 walks, 4 strikeouts and 3 runs in 4 innings.

Highest velocity 160km Average velocity 155km Lowest velocity 149km Although he threw a powerful fastball, the ratio of strikes (43) and balls (43) recorded exactly 50:50, leaving a regret.

Moon Dong-ju, who must have felt that a fastball would not work if it was not sharp, cheers Moon Dong-ju to grow one step further based on the experience that day.
