“Moon Dong-ju pitched his best game,” said Ryu Jung-il, head coach of the South Korean baseball team that won its second Asian Games title. Ryu walked into the press conference with Moon Dong-ju (Hanwha Eagles), who was the winning pitcher on Sunday after South Korea defeated Chinese Taipei 2-0 in the baseball final of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Baseball and Softball Sports Center 1 in Shaoxing City, Zhejiang Province, China. “It feels good to win the gold medal so hard, and the players played hard in the bad weather,” Liu said, first giving credit to his players. “Our starter Moon Dong-ju pitched the best, and Choi Ji-min (KIA Tigers), Park Young-hyun (KT Wiz), and Ko Woo-seok (LG Twins) also pitched well,” he said, adding, “We handled the last crisis in the ninth inning well.” Moon Dong-ju earned his first international victory with the senior national team after pitching six scoreless innings. Choi Ji-min and Park Young-hyun pitched one inning apiece, and Ko Woo-seok had runners on first and second after a dubious strike call in the final inning, but he got Wu Yending to ground out to second base to seal the dramatic victory. “It was hard to win gold in 2014 and again this year,” said Ryu, whose team won its second Asian Games title in nine years after the 2014 Incheon Games. “I think this marks a generational change in Korean baseball. Looking at our pitchers, I can see the future of Korean baseball,” he said, applauding the fearless performance of Young Guns. “In this tournament, we had an age limit for selecting players, and we had some injured players during the selection process, so we had a difficult team,” said Ryu, who won the tournament with players under the age of 25 and in their fourth year of professional baseball. “I’m sorry that Lee Yi-ri (KIA) couldn’t come due to injury. He was 토토사이트 throwing well right now” and made a wry face.
