“We got it right in the KIA match”… The goal is to go directly to the semi-PO, and the first game of the WC, the first ‘super ace’ in 37 years, is not calculated.

 NC Dinos hit the ‘double’s camp.’

NC smiled at the appearance of this season’s ‘super ace’. Eric Peddy (30) recorded 20 wins, 6 losses, and an ERA of 2.06 with 204 strikeouts in 29 games. In the KBO League, only 5 pitchers have achieved 20 wins and 200 strikeouts, a record.

Sammi Jang Myeong-bu (30 wins, 220 strikeouts) in 1983, Lotte Choi Dong-won (27 wins, 223 strikeouts) in 1984, Samsung안전놀이터 Kim Si-jin (25 wins, 201 strikeouts) in 1985, and Haitai Sun Dong-yeol (24 wins, 214 strikeouts) in 1986 achieved this feat earlier. did. Pedi is the first foreign player.

NC has 5 games left until the end of the season, including the game against Doosan in Jamsil on the 12th. NC will play against the KIA Tigers in Gwangju on the 16th and 17th after playing on the 13th (against the Changwon LG Twins) and 15th (against the Changwon Samsung Lions).

NC coach Kang In-kwon said ahead of the game on the 12th, “For now, Peddie is preparing to pitch against Gwangju KIA on the 16th.”

As of the 11th, NC is tied for 3rd place with SSG Landers (73 wins, 3 draws, 64 losses) with 73 wins, 2 draws, and 64 losses. They are 1.5 games behind the 5th place Doosan Bears (71 wins, 2 draws, 65 losses). Competition for rankings has become inevitable until the end of the season.

If you go to 4th or 5th place, you must prepare for the wild card match scheduled for the 19th. As the LG Twins have confirmed 1st place and KT Wiz have confirmed 2nd place, the best scenario for NC is to win a direct ticket to the semi-playoffs by finishing 3rd. However, he cannot help but prepare for the wild card match. For NC, the timing of Pedi’s appearance, a card that can surely secure one win, remained a concern.

Peddie’s appearance in the KIA game is like a ‘double-edged sword.’ If Peddie pitches on the 16th, not only will it be difficult for him to pitch in the first game of the wild card game, but he will only have three days of rest in the second game.

I decided to focus on one game for now. Coach Kang said, “If the rankings have not been decided by the KIA match on the 16th, we cannot afford to look back. For now, let Peddie go.”

Coach Kang said, “If we go as a wild card, Tanner Turley can play in the first game, and Peddy can play in the second game. However, Peddy is complaining of fatigue due to the number of innings. He said his shoulder is heavy. The reason he has an injury is “No, I think I need to check my condition.”

Coach Kang predicted an all-out effort, saying, “I’m worried about other teams’ results, but it’s important for us to win. It’s important to win today (against Doosan) and tomorrow (against LG).”
