“How can I not be conscious?”
I met KIA Kim Do-young shortly after the game on the 5th, the day before the first round of the Moon Kim Daejeon. Kim Do-young said, “I don’t like the feeling of hitting.” He had one hit in the actual five-day game, which was not a regular hit. It seems to be true that it was not a good hitting feeling with 3 hits in 13 at-bats in 3 consecutive matches against Hanwha on the weekend. It’s hard to see this as bullshit.
In other words, for Kim Do-young, it was urgent to raise his sense of hitting again rather than worrying about confrontation with Moon Dong-ju. In fact, there was no special meeting with Moon Dong-ju in this three-game series. It is rumored that Moon Dong-ju was also not aware of the confrontation with Kim Do-young.
However, SBS Sports commentators Lee Soon-chul, Kim Tae-hyung, and caster Jung Woo-young, who relayed this three-game series, made an honest broadcast. What is not conscious is that common sense makes no sense. The confrontation between the two was in the spotlight of the media early on. And in order to lead the team to victory, in the end, each other must overcome each other.
As a result, Moon Dong-ju won by decision. It was 2 at-bats, no hits, and 1 walk. However, there was a moment when you could doubt that they could be conscious of each other while watching the battle scene. When Moon Dong-ju faced Park Chan-ho in the first inning, his pitching motion increased momentarily and he made a kicking gesture.
Afterwards, Moon Dong-ju showed his will to overcome the initiative by inserting a first pitch curve in his first confrontation with Kim Do-young. In the end, I won with a full count curve. Kim Do-young struck a strong batting ball with excellent timing. But he just went straight to shortstop.
In the final confrontation in the 6th inning꽁머니, Moon Dong-joo’s pitching motion appeared to be kicking again with a full count. Commentator Kim Tae-hyung smiled and said, “Why are you so cute?” He interpreted it as a desire to compete with Kim Do-young. In fact, Moon Dong-ju’s 7-ball, 152km fastball went over catcher Choi Jae-hoon’s head. A lot of strength went into his body.
KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said, “The one who does the ceremony wins.” It means team versus team. It is difficult to know exactly how the two are feeling. Anyway, you can’t get into the minds of two people. The important thing is not whether they are conscious of each other in a head-to-head confrontation.
It is to give joy to the fans with good performance and to help the team. Moon Dong-ju did his best with a combination of a fast ball, curve, and slider, up to 159 km, and blamed 1 earned run in 5⅓ innings. He threw well enough. After Kim Do-young picked out a walk from Moon Dong-ju, he steals second base proudly. Afterwards, he also got a hit in the middle of the eighth inning, and also went on base with a walk and an error. He did his share well enough with 4 on base and 2 stolen bases.
The way they raise their energy levels like this is the true look that fans want from the two. I’ll show you this again in the future. Now that Moon Dong-ju has called General, we have to wait and see if the day will come when Kim Do-young calls Meng-gun. The two teams will meet again in Gwangju on the 25th and 27th. Moon Dong-ju doesn’t seem to appear in the rotation, but there is a variable called rain cancellation. If so, there is a possibility that the second round will be held at this time.
