Ahn Woo-jin · Gwak-bin A gloomy weekend… ML 21 wins, only top-class outsiders are in the 0-point range ‘ERA is 1st, it’s mine’
The joys and sorrows of the aces who boasted an average ERA in the 0-point range were mixed. Woojin Ahn (Kiwoom) and Bin Kwak (Doosan) had a gloomy weekend. On the other hand, Eric Peddy (NC), whose appearance was canceled due to rain, will start to earn the title in earnest.
Peddy was scheduled to start against Changwon KIA on the 6th, but it was canceled due to rain. When the Changwon KIA game on the 7th was also canceled due to rain, coach Kang In-kwon expressed his intention to use Pedi, Koo Chang-mo and one-two punches in the first two games of the three-game away game against KT starting on the 9th.
When the game was canceled on the 6th, Peddie said, “Cancellation of rain is part of baseball. I don’t care too much about the game being canceled. I have already played six games in April.” This season, Peddy is very active with an average ERA of 0.47 with 4 wins and 1 loss. In the late 140km to early 150km, the two-seam, slider, changeup, cutter, and sweeper commands and clever pitch design stand out. He quickly emerged as the best foreign pitcher in the KBO League.
Until just before the three-game series this weekend, Peddy, Kwak Bin (0.88), and Ahn Woo-jin (0.97) were ranked 1st to 3rd in ERA. There were no other pitchers in the league (regular innings) who maintained an ERA in the 0-point range other than these. However, on the 6th, Woojin Ahn became a losing pitcher with 6 hits (1 home run), 10 strikeouts and 2 runs in 7 innings against Gocheok SSG, and the average ERA in the 0-point range was broken. He throws so well that his earned run average rises even when he gives up two runs in seven innings. He entered the 1 point range (1.23).
Kwak Bin is the worst case. On the 7th, Jamsil LG Electronics collapsed with 4 hits (1 home run), 1 strikeout, 3 walks and 6 runs in 1⅓ innings. Not only did the ERA collapse in the 0-point range, but it also jumped over the 1-point range and entered the 2-point range (2.53) at once. Back pain is more painful than this fact. As red flags came in for his health, the future pitching schedule became unclear.메이저사이트
As this happens, Peddy is expected to dominate the ERA competition for the time being. Ahn Woo-jin, Adam Plutko (LG, 1.49), and Raul Alcantara (Doosan, 1.80) are opponents, but it seems difficult for competitors to catch up with Peddy in a short period of time unless Peddy collapses significantly. Of course, Ahn Woo-jin, Plutko, Alcantara, Kirk McCarty (SSG, 2.25), and Sean Anderson (KIA, 2.58) also possessed formidable skills.
Peddie showed his ambition for his earned run average title. In an interview on the 6th, “I want to win the average ERA title. This is because the ERA is a record that will remain for a lifetime. He also needs help from the catcher, infielder and outfielder.” He added that to do this, he had to keep a good strikeout / walk ratio, and minimize walks.
Pedi’s strikeout/four ball ratio is 4.80, which is 3rd in the league based on baseball statistics website Statties. The first place is Ahn Woo-jin, who has a strong strikeout ability, with 8.43, and the second place is Ko Young-pyo (KT, 6.67). Also, Pedy has 11 sand dunes. As well as ranking first in earned run average, he is well-deserved to reign as the best pitcher in the KBO League this year.
