Seung-won Moon finally joins the starting lineup, but can ‘2nd→3rd’ SSG make a rebound?

The SSG Landers, who dropped from second to third place after chasing the top-ranked LG Twins, enter a three-game midweek series against the fourth-ranked NC Dinos.

SSG will play the 11th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against NC at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 22nd.

After being swept in a three-game series against the Busan Lotte Giants on the 15th, the team lost five straight games against the first-place LG Twins in Incheon on the 18th and 19th. They dropped from second to third in the standings.스포츠토토

They swept LG 2-1 on the 20th, the final day of the three-game weekend series, but the KT Wiz, who moved into second place, won two straight to stay in third. They’ll look to regain the top spot, but third-place SuSung is first.

They are only three games behind NC in fourth place. Depending on the outcome of this three-game series, the standings could change again. The first day of the three-game series is more important than ever. In addition, Moon Seung-won is back in the starting lineup.

After starting the first three games of the season, he’s been in the middle of the rotation this year. With two foreign pitchers, Kim Kwang-hyun, Park Jong-hoon, and Oh Won-seok, Moon was moved to strengthen the bullpen.

Recently, however, submarine pitcher Park Jong-hoon was sent to the second team after a slump. The starting spot is now open, and Moon Seung-won is back in. At one point, SSG looked like they could afford to move Moon to the bullpen and give rookie Song Young-jin a chance in the starting lineup, but things are not looking good for SSG right now.

Aside from two foreign pitchers, Kirk McCarty and Roenis Elias, the remaining three homegrown starters have been up and down. Even the “ace” Kim Kwang-hyun has had his ups and downs. Left-hander Oh Won-seok has given up 14 runs in his last three games.

He’s not even worthy of a starting spot. For now, Moon Seung-won will have to plug the cracks. 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 runs in three straight games out of the bullpen. Can he show stability in the starting spot again? After all, to be competitive in the standings, a team needs a solid starting rotation.

LG’s dominance of the top spot and KT Wiz’s climb from 10th place to 2nd place was fueled by a solid starting lineup. Will SSG be able to stabilize their starting lineup again for the rest of the season?
