The Hanwha Eagles will challenge the first three wins of the season with rookie Moon Dong-ju at the fore. If you catch victory, you can escape even at the bottom.
Hanwha will face off against KT Wiz at Daejeon Hanwha Life Eagles Park on the 6th.
It is a game with a special meaning of ‘one win’.
Hanwha is at the bottom with 8 wins, 1 draw and 18 losses. It is one game behind KT, who recorded 8 wins, 2 draws and 16 losses.
If Hanwha catches KT on this day, it can move up one notch from 10th to 9th. On the other hand, after cutting off a long 9-game losing streak, KT, who fell into 2 consecutive losses again, will fall to the bottom if they lose again on this day.
In the first meeting of the season last month, the two teams were evenly matched with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss.
Recently, Hanwha has the upper hand.
Hanwha, who fell into a pit of six consecutive losses from the 26th of last month to the 2nd of last month, got on the flow after a long time by reaping a victory against the Doosan Bears on the 3rd and 4th.
The concentration of the batting line was outstanding.
On the 3rd, he showed cohesion by scoring 8 runs in the 7th inning only, and the next day, he scored 10 runs including 4 home runs.
Drive the momentum and knock on the first 3 consecutive wins of the season.

Initially, Hanwha announced Nam Ji-min as the starting pitcher for Children’s Day, the first day of the three-weekend match against KT, but changed the starting pitcher to Moon Dong-ju on the 6th when the game was canceled due to rain.
Moon Dong-ju is recording an average ERA of 2.38 in 4 games this season.

Having achieved quality starts (QS, 3 earned runs or more in 6 or more innings starting) 4 times, he pitched well with 2 runs in 7 innings against the Samsung Lions on the 29th of last month, the previous appearance.
