Moon Dong-ju (20), a fireball pitcher for the Hanwha Eagles, said he sleeps a lot to maintain his condition.
When he talked about the sleeping habits of Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels), Dong-ju Moon jokingly said, “I want to follow Ohtani.”
Moon Dong-ju started against LG in Jamsil on the 12th and became the winning pitcher with 5 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 7⅓ innings. He threw 108 pitches in the last appearance of the first half, breaking his record for the most pitches in a single game.
He continued his good fight from the 1st to the 7th without any crisis. The only thing that sent a runner to second base was a double by Hong Chang-ki after two outs in the third inning.
It was a crisis in the 8th inning with a 2-0 lead. After one run, Moon Bo-kyung hit a double in right-center, Park Hae-min walked, and Shin Min-jae hit a left-handed hit that fell between shortstop and left fielder, putting the bases loaded with one out. He was replaced by Kim Bum-soo, and Kim Bum-soo gave only one point with an infield grounder and kept Moon Dong-ju’s victory requirement. In the ninth, Park Sang-won took a 2-1 lead and ended the game. 토토사이트
Moon Dong-ju finished the first half with an average ERA of 3.47 with 6 wins and 6 losses in 16 games (83 innings). He is going on a two-week break including the All-Star break.
During the interview after the game, Moon Dong-ju said that he slept for more than 10 hours on average. He said, “It seems that sleep plays a huge role in conditioning. I usually sleep a lot. I tend to try to sleep a lot. They say that sleep helps a lot in regulating one’s condition, so it seems like I try to sleep a lot.”
When asked how many hours he sleeps, Moon Dong-ju said, “I sleep for more than 10 hours on average. I also bring a pillow (when I go on an expedition),” he said.
Let’s say that Ohtani (LA Angels) also always carries a pillow, Dong-ju Moon said, “Imitating Ohtani… It’s not… I want to follow (laughs). I want to be like Ohtani,” he said with a laugh.
Moon Dong-ju said that he slept for 10 hours without waking up in the middle. I tend to go to my dorm after the game and fall asleep at dawn and sleep until noon the next day. When he said, ‘Otani eats breakfast and goes back to sleep,’ Moon Dong-joo smiled and said, “Then I’ll eat breakfast too and go back to sleep.”
Ohtani mentioned her personal life at a press conference ahead of the Major League All-Star Game on the 11th.
Ohtani also pays the most attention to sleep in order to adjust her condition. He said, “At home, I wake up for breakfast, so I eat breakfast and go back to sleep. I wake up around 9:30 to 10:00, eat, go to bed, get up, go to the baseball field, and eat again.”
On the other hand, Moon Dong-ju, who finished all of the first half of the mound, said about his performance, “His goal was to run without getting sick. That goal seems to have been achieved 100%,” he said.
“I don’t think I have the ability to set a record goal yet. If you play the same game in the second half, there will definitely be some regrets, so if you fix it well, the results will come out at the end of the season.”
