Kwak Bin (24) had a face-to-face match with Moon Dong-ju in the Hanwha match held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 1st. Both are representative fireballers in the KBO League.

Moon Dong-ju is faster on the ball, but Kwak-bin is still a step ahead in pitching. Kwak Bin has an average ERA of 2.46 with 9 wins and 4 losses in 15 games this season. Moon Dong-ju is also fighting well with an average ERA of 3.39 with 6 wins and 7 losses in 19 games. Due to Gwak Bin’s absence due to injury, the WAR (contribution to victory against substitute players) is 2.25 and 2.21, not much difference. Both pitchers are domestic aces that the team reassured.

The previous confrontation on the 1st was a decision victory for Gwak Bin. Kwak Bin won 2 hits (1 home run), 2 walks and 1 run in 7 innings, winning a decision victory over Moon Dong-ju (5 innings, 2 runs) and taking his 9th win of the season. Moon Dong-ju also pitched well, but struggled against the persistent Doosan lineup and failed to digest the long innings.

Although he won by decision, Kwak Bin raised his thumb after the match due to his junior’s good fight. Gwak Bin, who met with reporters after the game at the time, praised, “I think Moon Dong-ju is the number 2 right-handed pitcher in our country.” Number 1 is not you. He picked his best friend Woojin Ahn (Kiwoom Heroes) first, and beat his junior Dongju Moon above himself. He said, “I think he is a better pitcher than me as a junior. So today, whether I win or lose, I thought of my spouse and I had a lot of fun.”

Kwak Bin recorded a quality start plus (less than 3 earned runs over 7 innings) in both games in August. He has to fulfill the mission of an ace that continues Doosan’s winning streak, which was won by Brandon Waddell’s scoreless pitch the previous day.

Moon Dong-ju’s shoulders are heavier. Hanwha recently lost 8th place to Samsung Lions with 5 consecutive losses. In the course of 5 consecutive losses, it was fatal that both foreign one-two punchers Ricardo Sanchez and Felix Pena of the team collapsed. In the situation where only Moon Dong-ju remains in the starting lineup of Hanwha. If even Moon Dong-ju collapses, there is a high possibility that his losing streak will be even longer.

It is worth looking forward to the extreme appearance of Doosan this year. Moon Dong-ju recorded an average of 5 and 2/3 innings and an average ERA of 1.08 in three games against Doosan this year, although he did not win. Before the game on the 1st, coach Lee Seung-yeop even admired, saying, “I only scored 1 point against Moon Dong-ju this year because of my visa.” Unlike the one-day game, if the innings are given, Hanwha can expect sufficient results.
