Will a new history be born today 10th in Korean baseball, which marks its 42nd year. 토토사이트 The hero is Eric Peddy, the ace of the NC Dinos, who is about to win 20 games this season. Peddy is the first foreign player in the KBO league to challenge 20 wins and 200 strikeouts. If Peddy achieves it, he will become the main character of the milestone 37 years after Sun Dong-yeol, a living legend who made a reputation as a national treasure pitcher when he was active.
The NC Dinos will play the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game against the Hanwha Eagles at 6:30 p.m. on the 10th at Changwon NC Park. NC has only six games left this season. He will play against Hanwha on the 10th and face Doosan at Jamsil Stadium on the 12th after a day off. He will then return to Changwon to face LG on the 13th and Samsung on the 15th, before moving to Gwangju on the 16th to play the last two consecutive games against KIA.
On the 10th, NC’s Peddy and Hanwha’s Kim Ki-joong 1 win, 2 losses, 4.66 ERA will start. Peddy is dominating the KBO league stage by playing as the best ace this season. This season, Peddy is 19-6 with a 2.13 ERA in 28 starts. While pitching 168 ⅔ innings, he has 127 hits 9 home runs, 34 walks, 198 strikeouts, 46 runs 40 earned runs, 0.95 on-base percentage per inning and 0.205 hits. The quality start less than three earned runs in six innings as a starter. He ranks first in multiple wins, first in ERA, first in strikeouts, and first in WHIP this season.
Now, Peddy is taking on the challenge of a milestone of 20 wins-200 strikeouts per season, which only four players have achieved in the KBO league. If Peddy becomes the winning pitcher in the game on the 10th and adds 11 strikeouts at the same time, he will be the fifth 20 wins-200 strikeout pitcher in the KBO league history since Sun Dong-yeol in the 1986 season. This is the first milestone for a foreign player.
There have been four times in the KBO league that he has achieved 20 wins and 200 strikeouts in a season. Jang Dae-bu of Sammi Superstars in the 1983 season is the first main character. At that time, Jang Dae-bu won 30 games, which remains the record for the most wins in a season. He also garnered 220 strikeouts, becoming the first player to record 20 wins and 200 strikeouts. It has been 36 years since Choi Dong-won 27 wins-223 strikeouts of the 1984 season, Kim Si-jin 25 wins-201 strikeouts) of the 1985 season, and Sun Dong-yeol 24 wins-214 strikeouts of the 1986 season achieved the milestone, respectively.
The variable is Peddy’s recent physical condition. After winning against Doosan on September 19, Peddy failed to win both against KIA on September 26 three hits, eight strikeouts, one run and one earned run in six innings and Hanwha on October 1 six hits, nine strikeouts, three runs and two earned runs in six innings. He was then scheduled to start against Changwon SSG on the 7th as scheduled, but he was unable to take the mound due to shoulder fatigue.
NC coach Kang In-kwon said about Pedi on the 7th, Pedi’s shoulder fatigue has increased a little, adding, I think I need to check my condition every day. I don’t think it’s possible to decide the date and tell you at the moment. However, it is not enough to be examined at the hospital. He also said, I’m playing catch normally. Fortunately, without a big gap, Peddy will play against Hanwha on the 10th. In other words, it is his first appearance in nine days after an eight-day break.
NC’s victory is as important as Peddy’s milestone. NC, which once chased second-place KT by 0.5 games, faced a difficult situation with six consecutive losses from the 30th of last month to the 5th of last month. Still, after losing consecutive games against SSG on the 7th, he lost to SSG again on the 8th, but won 11-6 against Hanwha on the 9th, laying the groundwork for a rebound. Even after the game, Peddy is expected to be able to start another game or so in the rotation. Will both Peddy and NC be able to smile brightly in the game on the 10th.
