SSG, which had recently broken a 5-game losing streak and had been pushed down to 6th, rose to 5th again. The KIA Tigers lost 3-4 to the LG Twins on this day, falling back to 6th place with 6 consecutive losses.

More than escaping a losing streak and returning to 5th place, the good news for SSG will be starter Seung-won Moon’s good pitching. Seung-won Moon earned his fourth win of the season by pitching 93 pitches, allowing 4 hits, 3 strikeouts, 2 walks, and 3 runs in 8 innings on this day.

It has been a long time since he became the winning pitcher in the game against the Samsung Lions on April 12, his first appearance of the season, with 8 scoreless innings pitched. It is also the first win since rejoining the starting lineup.

Seung-won Moon started the season as part of the starting rotation, but was moved to the bullpen. This is because there were many starting players, including two foreign pitchers, Kim Gwang-hyun, Park Jong-hoon, and Oh Won-seok.

After careful consideration, the coaching staff decided that Seung-won Moon could do better to strengthen the bullpen. Seung-won Moon started the first four games and spent most of his time in the bullpen thereafter.

Then, as cracks appeared in the starting lineup, Moon Seung-won was moved again. However, Seung-won Moon did not do well, allowing 15 runs (14 earned runs) in 3 games after rejoining the starting lineup. I suffered 2 losses.

However, on this day, he showed a completely different pitch. He pitched well until the 3rd inning without giving up a run, but in the bottom of the 4th inning, he hit a timely hit from Kim Tae-yeon and a 2-run home run from Chae Eun-seong. But his mistakes ended there. Seung-won Moon stayed on the mound until the 8th inning without allowing any additional runs. It was his first appearance of the season and his first time pitching 8 innings since the Samsung game.

In the 9th inning, closing pitcher Seo Jin-yong took the mound and recorded his 36th save of the season, securing a 2-run victory with one scoreless inning. He broke the club’s record for most saves.
