Eric Peddy (30-NC Dinos) will finally pitch in a postseason game.KT WIZ will counter with ‘undefeated pitcher’ William Cuevas (33).NC and KT officially announced Pedi and Cuevas as the starting pitchers for Game 1 of the 2023 KBO Playoffs (PO) at Katie Wiz Park in Suwon, South Korea, at 6:30 p.m. on April 29.It’s an “ace matchup” worthy of a PO Game 1 starter, especially for Pedi.Peddie won the “Triple Crown” in the regular season this year with a 20-6 record, a 2.00 ERA, and 209 strikeouts.Pedi joins only four other pitchers in the 42-year history of the Korean Professional Baseball Organization, including Sun Dong-yeol of the Haetae Tigers (1986, 1989, 1990, 1991), Ryu Hyun-jin of the Hanwha Eagles (2006), and Yoon Seok-min of the KIA Tigers (2011).Pedi also posted a 20-win, 200-strikeout record, a feat only achieved by legendary pitchers such as Jang Myung-bu of the Sammi Superstars in 1983 (30 wins and 220 strikeouts), the late Choi Dong-won of the Lotte Giants in 1984 (27 wins and 223 strikeouts), Kim Si-jin of the Samsung Lions in 1985 (25 wins and 201 strikeouts), and Sun Dong-yeol of Hattae in 1986 (24 wins and 214 strikeouts).

However, Pedi was hit in the forearm by a batted ball in his final start of the regular season against the KIA Tigers on June 16 and was unable to take the mound as the team advanced through the wild-card deciding Semi-Phase.NC head coach Kang Myung-ho announced Peddie as the starter for Game 3 of the Semifinals, but Peddie felt discomfort after pitching out of the bullpen, so Tanner Tully took the mound in his place.Pedi pitched out of the bullpen again on the 27th, and this time, there were no signs of discomfort.Peddie, who is considered the top pitcher in the KBO in 2023, pitched well against KT with a 2.65 ERA in three games. However, he didn’t have much luck, winning only one game (2 losses).His batting average is .271, the highest of the nine teams he’s faced.Anthony Alford tormented Pedi with an 8-for-5 (.625 OPS) performance, including two home runs. Moon Sang-chul, Kim Jun-tae (over 6-for-2), Park Byung-ho, and Hwang Jae-gyun (over 3-for-1) also had success against Pedi.For KT, it was unfortunate that Kang Baek-ho, who went 6-for-2 with a home run 온라인카지노 against Pedi, was unable to play in the PO due to injury.
