He added, “Both players are in good shape as they are the best aces of the national team.

“I expected it to show.”

Moon Dong-ju will play against the San Diego Padres at Gocheok Dome at 7 p.m. on the 17th, and Kwak Bin will play against the Los Angeles Dodgers starting at the same time on the 18th.

Manager Ryu Joong-il explained, “Currently, many starting pitchers have joined the national team.

We plan to use three starting pitchers in each of the two games and then add bullpen pitchers behind them.”

He also said, “The players who are starting pitchers on their teams are scheduled to pitch two innings each,” adding, “However, if they give up a run, they will quickly change it.”

“I want to play on equal footing,” he said.

When asked about the significance of this practice match, Coach Ryu replied, “I got a great experience that money can’t buy,” and “I’m playing against the best players, but I don’t want to be embarrassed.”

However, he also said, “We plan to play the game with a strong attack rather than a strategy so that the players can gain a lot of experience.”

When asked, ‘Who is the most motivated player?’, he chuckled and said, “It’s like Kim Hye-seong (Kiwoom Heroes).”

Regarding the playing environment at Gocheok Dome, which has installed new artificial turf, he said, “I feel like hitting ground balls is a little slow (because the grass is long),” and added, “I think it will be okay as time goes by.”
