William Cuevas Fight, KT Wins Against NC for Two Days in a Row... PO to the 5th Game


The KT Wiz batting lineup responded with a hard hit to the fighting spirit of William Cuevas, who took the mound after resting for three days.

KT defeated NC Dinos 11-2 in the 4th game of the professional baseball 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Postseason Playoffs (PO) held at Changwon NC Park on the 3rd.

KT, which had been pushed to the brink after losing the first and second games in its home Suwon, won the third and fourth games in a row in Changwon, taking PO's record of three wins out of five to the fifth game. 온라인카지노

Game 5 will be held at Suwon KT Wiz Park at 2pm on the 5th.

The main character of the victory was definitely Cuevas.

Cuevas, who started in Game 1 of PO on October 30th and threw 75 balls, allowing 6 hits (1 home run) and 7 runs (4 earned) in 3 innings, suffered a loss, and took the mound in Game 4 of PO after only three days of rest.

Although he did not have enough time to recover physically, Cuevas succeeded in regaining his honor by throwing a mixture of four-seam fastballs (fastballs), two-seam fastballs, and cut fastballs with a maximum speed of 150 km per hour.

Cuevas had the misfortune of having Son Ah-seop, the first batter, get on base in the bottom of the first inning due to a catching error by KT third baseman Hwang Jae-gyun, but he pitched 6 innings, allowing 1 hit and no runs, including 17 consecutive batters.

The KT batting line scored 11 runs with 14 hits, including 3 home runs.

First batter Kim Sang-soo, who got on base with a ball that hit his body in the top of the first inning, stole second base, and reached third base due to NC catcher Kim Hyeong-jun's throwing error.

With one out and runners on first and third base following Anthony Alford's walk, Byung-ho Park hit a timely hit with an RBI that hit the right fence.

It was 1st and 3rd bases with 1 out and runners on third base again, and when Jang Seong-woo's short-distance fly ball to center field, 3rd base runner Alford boldly dug into the groove and scored an additional point.

NC coach Kang In-kwon brought in Lee Jae-hak when starting pitcher Song Myeong-ki (3 hits and 4 runs in 1⅓ innings) was in danger with one out and second and third bases in the top of the second inning.

However, Jaehak Lee contributed 1 point with a wild pitch.

With Kim Sang-soo on base on a walk and runners on first and third base with one out, Jae-gyun Hwang added one point with a double that flew toward the left wall.

In the 3rd inning, KT also created an opportunity with one out and 2nd and 3rd bases thanks to hits by Jang Seong-woo and Oh Yun-seok.

During Oh Yoon-seok's missed hit, NC center fielder Jason Martin's throw toward the infield went over the height of first baseman Oh Young-soo, who was covering second base, and what should have been first and third base became second and third base.

KT, who got a lucky opportunity due to the opponent's clumsy play that was not recorded as an error, added 2 points with Bae Jeong-dae's heavy, timely hit.

In the 4th inning, Hwang Jae-gyun, who appeared as the leadoff hitter, drew a solo arch that went over the left wall.

It was a shot to make up for a catching error in the bottom of the first inning.

After two outs in the fourth inning, Jang Seong-woo fired a solo shot and KT scored two points each in the first to fourth innings to advance to 8-0.

Only after two outs in the sixth inning did NC break free from the 'no-hit chain' thanks to Son Ah-seop's left-handed hit.

In the bottom of the 8th inning, when KT ran away to 11-0 thanks to Alford's solo shot, Oh Young-soo's double to left field and Seo Ho-cheol's left-field hit put them on 1st and 3rd base without any outs, and Park Se-hyuk's timely hit to left broke the silence of 0.

Son Ah-seop's timely hit to the left added one point.

However, the pendulum had already completely swung in favor of KT Wiz.

KT continued its streak of 22 consecutive scoreless innings from the 4th inning of Game 2 to the 7th inning of Game 4, setting a 'PO record for most consecutive scoreless innings in PO history.'
