On the 23rd, Jang Won-jun started in the home game against the Samsung Lions, a professional baseball game held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, and took 7 hits and allowed 4 runs in 5 innings.

Jang Won-joon, who handed the mound to Park Chi-guk in the 6th inning, when the team was leading 6-4, will turn back the victory clock that stopped on May 5, 2018, if the team wins without allowing a tie, and announces 130 personal wins for the 11th time in the KBO League history step on

Jang Won-joon blocked the first episode with a tripartite offense and got off to a good start.

Jang Won-joon, who treated lead batter Kim Ji-chan with a looking strikeout at the end of a full-count game, caught the next batter Kim Hyun-joon with a grounder from second baseman.

Koo Ja-wook’s strong batted ball at number 3 hit Jang Won-joon’s leg and deflected toward the second baseman. Jang Won-joon, who caught the lucky out count, forgot his leg pain and went into the dugout at first base with a calm expression.

In the second episode, the atmosphere changed.

Jang Won-jun was hit in a row by Jose Pirella and Kang Min-ho and was driven to first and third base safely.

Samsung Kang Han-wool tried a surprise bunt, and third base runner Pirella returned home without running home.

However, Doosan first baseman Yang Seok-hwan, who caught the ball, threw a bad throw at second baseman Lee Yu-chan, who covered first base, and the runner on third stepped home.

The record was scored by Yang Seok-hwan’s throwing error following Kang Han-wool’s infield hit.

In the ensuing Musa 1st and 3rd base, Jang Won-joon sighed by striking out Oh Jae-il on a swing.

However, he gave Kim Tae-gun a 1-run infield hit next to the shortstop, and Lee Jae-hyeon hit 2 RBIs and triples in the middle right.

Jang Won-Jun treated Kim Ji-Chan as a left field foul fly and Kim Hyeon-Jun as a strikeout and did not concede any additional runs.

At the end of the 3rd inning, trailing 1-4, Doosan poured out 6 hits and scored 5 runs to turn the game around to 6-4.

Jang Won-joon, who gained strength, increased his innings without conceding any additional runs.

In the 5th inning, when the victory pitcher requirement was required, Kim Ji-chan struck out, Kim Hyun-joon caught a first baseman grounder, and Koo Ja-wook caught a second baseman grounder in turn.

It is the first time in 1,798 days since Jang Won-joon threw more than 5 innings against the Nexen Heroes on June 20, 2018 (5 innings, 6 hits and 6 runs).

On this day, Jang Won-jun started in the first team game 2 years and 7 months (958 days) after the SK Wyverns match (predecessor of SSG Landers) on October 7, 2020.

He pitched in relief in 32 games in 2021 and 27 games in 2022.

This year, Jang Won-joon opened with the Futures (2nd team), and in the 2nd team, he played as a starting pitcher all four times. His 2023 Futures League record is 1 win and 1 loss with an earned run average of 3.60.

Since Dylan Pyle and Kwak Bin were left out of the first-team entry due to injuries, Doosan needed an alternative selection, and Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop gave Jang Won-joon, the “ace of the past,” a chance to pitch.

Before the game, manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “I hope Jang Won-joon throws long innings to reduce bullpen consumption, as it is Tuesday, the start of the week of professional baseball.”

On this day, Jang Won-joon’s highest fastball speed was 141 km per hour. Although not as dominant as he was in his prime, he played a minimal role as a starter, filling the fifth inning.

If you get a little more luck and win, Jang Won-jun will become the only three active ‘130-win pitcher’ along with Yang Hyeon-jong (161 wins, KIA Tigers) and Kim Gwang-hyun (152 wins, SSG Landers), who competed for ace in the past
