Doosan Choi Won-jun says to Kwak Bin, who has 4 draws and 4 losses, “It will definitely be a good day.”

Interview with Doosan Choi Won-jun

Doosan Bears sidearm Choi Won-jun (29), who accumulated his second win of the season, gave warm words to the team’s native ace Kwak Bin (24).

Choi Won-jun pitched his best pitch of the season with 2 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, and 1 run (1 earned) in 6⅔ innings against the NC Dinos held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 25th.

Until this day, Won-Jun Choi had been in the 1st and 2nd teams and was struggling with 3 games, 1 win, 1 loss, and an average ERA of 13.09.

The dark clouds of last season (3 wins, 10 losses, 4.93 ERA in 26 games), which was the worst in terms of performance except for the first year of first-team debut, seemed to be continuing.

However, Won-Jun Choi achieved his first quality start of the season (6 or more innings as a starter, 3 earned runs or less) and led the team to victory.

However, ironically, Kwak Bin, who has been in the starting rotation since the start of this season, is actually without a win.

In six starts this year, he has only five losses despite achieving three quality starts. In the NC game the previous day, he lasted 6 innings with 2 hits and 1 run, but withdrew without any results.

With foreign pitchers Raul Alcantara and Brandon Waddell both leaving the lineup due to injuries, Kwak Bin’s shoulders have become even heavier.

This is why Choi Won-jun got his second win of the season and thought of his junior Kwak Bin.

Choi Won-jun, who we met after the game, said, “Actually, Bin is having a hard time. He’s being chased by one win,” and added, “I think he’s going through what I went through last year.”

Choi Won-jun also suffered only 3 losses in 6 games since the opening last year, but achieved his first win in the 7th game.

Choi Won-jun said, “I was chasing one win last year, but my performance deteriorated and I fell into a slump. As a senior, I should help and give strength, but I was distracted.”

He said, “Bin is a good pitcher and a good pitcher, so if he does what he can on the mound, good days will definitely come.”

Choi Won-jun said about his rebound, “Nothing has changed. However, I was psychologically chased and doubted myself due to my poor performance at the beginning of the season, but today I believed in my efforts and threw without regret.” 고스톱
