The time has come for NC Dinos’ special ace Eric Peddy (30). He is up for his 7th start of the season. The opponent is the KIA Tigers, who faced off once.
NC will play the 4th game of the season against the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League KIA at Changwon NC Park on the 6th. As for the record against both teams, KIA has the advantage with 2 wins and 1 loss. The Children’s Day game on the 5th was canceled due to rain.
The NC starting pitcher on the 5th was Shin Min-hyeok, but on the 6th he was changed to Peddy. Peddie will be on the starting mound after a six-day break. Pedi is NC’s most reliable 1-win card. Appearing in 6 games this season, he recorded 4 wins, 1 loss, 38 innings, 48 strikeouts, and an average ERA of 0.47, showing an overwhelming pace. He ranked first in earned run average, second in innings and strikeouts, and tied for second in wins.
There is no way to break the steep rise. Not once has Pedy scored more than two earned runs, and he pitched seven scoreless innings in his last two games. Moreover, he achieved quality starts in 4 out of 6 games and provided the team with a steady chance to win. NC recorded 4 wins and 2 losses in the game where Peddie appeared.
Peddy faces KIA again. On the 25th of last month, he sortied as a starter against the Gwangju KIA and took the lead in the team’s 6-0 victory with 7 innings, 3 hits, 8 strikeouts and no runs. Pedy’s performance, which thoroughly blocked the bats of KIA hitters, was by far the best. Peddy, with fond memories, goes on his second tiger hunt. 안전놀이터
