‘Man of the Match’ Moon Seung-won, “I was very nervous before the game”

SSG Landers veteran right-hander Moon Seung-won overcame a blown save to preserve the win.

SSG pulled off a 6-1 come-from-behind victory over the Hanwha Eagles in the 11th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on Tuesday.

After the game, manager Kim Won-hyung said, “Won Seok-i was in trouble today, but he did his job as a starting pitcher,” and added, “The player of the game is (Moon) Seung-won. He came in with the bases loaded in the seventh inning and did a great job without allowing a run, and in the eighth inning, he got out of a jam with runners on first and third without allowing a run. It proved to be the difference in the win. Seung-won made four appearances this week and dedicated himself to the team.”

SSG was in trouble in the seventh inning, when veteran left-hander Ko Hyo-joon gave up back-to-back singles to Jung Eun-won and Noh Si-hwan with runners on second and third. In the process, Ko was very unhappy with the umpire’s strike zone call.

With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, SSG brought up Moon Seung-won. Moon struck out Chae Eun-sung on a wild pitch and roared. No runs were scored and the three-run lead was maintained.

SSG was in trouble once again in the eighth inning. Moon Seung-won gave up a leadoff single to Kim In-hwan and a single to Ha Ju-seok to put runners on first and third. But he struck out Williams, got Park Sang-un to fly out to third base, and got Moon Hyun-bin to ground out to shortstop to get out of the jam.

Moon said, “I was nervous before I started pitching. I’m a hitter who actively hits the first two pitches, so I threw the ball to the mound early on. It was a tough game because my opponent was patient until the third pitch. I tried to look down at home plate and throw the ball as hard as I could because I needed to get a strikeout in the last minute. I pitched with the idea that I could face the next batter, and I think that led 메이저사이트 to a good result.”

“There are a lot of tight situations in the team, so not only me but all the middle pitchers are trying to fulfill their duties. I’m grateful that I’m able to pitch often, so I can do my job every day.”
