Moon Dong-ju (Hanwha Eagles) was unable to overcome Taiwan’s batting lineup. The pitch wasn’t the worst, but it was definitely a disappointing pitch.

Moon Dong-ju, who did not meet the Rookie of the Year qualifications last year, is a strong candidate for this year’s title, which he will receive only once in his life. Moon Dong-ju, who is under strict management by Hanwha, ended his season with the LG Twins on September 3rd. However, he thoroughly prepared for the Asian Games during the break, and in the warm-up game, he allowed 2 hits, 5 strikeouts, and no runs in 3 innings with a fast ball of up to 154 km/h.
The start of the game wasn’t very good. Even though the local speed gun was unable to properly measure the velocity, Moon Dong-ju showed off his power by throwing a 150 km fast ball against the first batter, Zeng Zhongzhe, but faced a crisis by allowing a double to left-center. However, he caught the follow-up batter, Lin Zwei, with a grounder to first base, and then threw a high fastball to Linley in the ensuing 1-out, 3rd base, strikeout, quickly accumulating the out count.
A crisis that seemed to end the inning without allowing any runs ended up giving up the first run. Moon Dong-ju’s fast ball thrown to Lian Ke in the ensuing game with one out and 3rd base on base was formed high on a good course to hit, and he allowed a 1-run triple that went over the right fielder’s height, leading to the score being 0-1. However, there were no additional goals conceded. Moon Dong-ju guided Wu Nian-ting to a ground ball to shortstop, ending the inning without allowing a run.
Moon Dong-ju, who gave up the first run, quickly regained stability and began to block Taiwan’s batting lineup. In the bottom of the second inning, Moon Dong-ju caught Li Hao-yu with a ground ball to first base, then grounded Shen Hao-wei to shortstop and Lin Zhi-hao grounded to first base, ending the inning with a three-way throw. And in the third inning, he tied up Lin Jiazheng and Zeng Zongze with ground balls, and then struck out Lin Zhiwei with a strike, not out, ending the inning without any fuss.
It was in the 4th inning that Moon Dong-ju, who was cruising along, faced a crisis again. Moon Dong-ju started the inning on a good note by striking out leadoff hitter Lin Lee. However, he guided the follow-up hitter Lian Ke to a ground ball toward third base, which bounced off Noh Si-hwan’s glove and resulted in an infield hit, and gave up a walk to Wu Nian-ting, causing a crisis at first and second base. Another goal was lost here.
Moon Dong-ju caught Li Hao-yu on first and second base with a fly ball to right field, and at this time, the runner on second base ran toward third base. And in the game against Shen Hao-wei, Dong-ju Moon committed a wild pitch, allowing the runner on third base to score, resulting in his second run. There were no additional runs this time, but the score given up by a wild pitch in a situation where the batting line was unable to show its strength was definitely painful.
Moon Dong-ju, who allowed two runs in four innings, was replaced in the fifth inning, handing the mound over to Park Se-woong.
