Shaky SSG, Moon Seung-won back in the starting lineup…22nd to play NC…3-game losing streak Lotte sends out Wilkerson

SSG Landers veteran right-hander Moon Seung-won will finally return to the starting rotation.

The KBO has released the starting pitchers for the five ballparks that will play on the 22nd. The big surprise is Incheon. SSG, which has lost five straight games and dropped to third place on its way to chasing the first-place LG Twins, has been shaky lately and finally turned to Moon Seung-won as its starter.

Moon was the starting pitcher until last year. This season, with two foreign pitchers, Kim Kwang-hyun, Park Jong-hoon, and Oh Won-seok, Moon joined the bullpen to bolster the rotation.

However, recently, submarine pitcher Park Jong-hoon was sent to the second team after a poor performance. The starting spot is now open and Moon Seung-won is back in. After starting four games at the beginning of the season and then being used as a middle reliever, Moon Seung-won was given the starting job again after 112 days.

In 42 games this season, including four starts, Moon has a 3-4 record, one save, nine holds, and a 4.74 ERA. Recently, he has given up a run in three straight games out of the bullpen. It remains to be seen if he can stabilize himself in the starting role again.

NC will start left-hander Choi Sung-young. Choi is 4-1 with a 2.63 ERA in nine starts this season. He took the loss against SSG on April 9, allowing two runs in 4⅔ innings, and followed that up with five innings of one-run ball against Hanwha on April 16.

In Jamsil, the Lotte Giants take on the LG Twins; in Incheon, the NC Dinos take on SSG; in Suwon, the KIA Tigers take on the KT Wiz; in Gocheok, the Doosan Bears take on the Kiwoom Heroes; and in Daejeon, the Samsung Lions take on the Hanwha Eagles.메이저놀이터

Lotte, which has lost three straight, will start foreign pitcher Aaron Wilkerson and LG will start right-hander Lee Jung-yong. KIA will go with left-hander Lee Yi-ri and KT with sidearm Uhm Sang-baek.

Doosan will start foreign pitcher Raul Alcantara, Kiwoom will send up right-hander Kim Sun-ki, Samsung will send up foreign ace David Buchanan, and Hanwha will send up a right-handed veteran for a three-game midweek series.
