KT exclusivity “LG is a long way off, but 2nd place is worth a shot”
“I’m not fighting with Pedi, but it’s good that the team players gave up points. It’s my job to lay the foundation for the team to win in the games I play.”
Right-handed pitcher Bae Seong 먹튀검증 (26) of kt wiz, who won the match against the best pitcher in the league, said calmly.
On the 13th, against Suwon NC Dinos, he won 6 wins (6 losses) of the season by throwing 1 hit and no runs in 6 innings, and gave Eric Peddy, who is proud of NC, his 4th loss (15 wins) of the season.
Thanks to the exclusivity, which lasted scoreless until the 6th inning, kt won 4-0 against NC and continued the 8th consecutive winning series (at least 2 wins out of 3 matches).
Exclusiveness said, “It feels good when the opponent wins whoever it is” without showing any excitement even though he caught Pedi.
In fact, the condition of the exclusivity was not good that day.
Although the ball was strong enough to reach 149km/h even in the scorching heat, the pitcher ignored the catcher’s mitt to the extent that there were more balls (54 pitches) than strikes (53 pitches).
Even after giving up seven piles of walks, he did not give up a point due to his crisis management ability, he said in a self-deprecating manner, “I did not let go of my mind and focused while continuing to give walks.”
Bae Seong-seong explained, “When a batter goes on base with a walk, my strengths are tunneling (the ability to make the ball as difficult to grasp as possible even after the ball leaves the pitcher’s hand) and good pitch, so I only thought about suppressing the score.”
Even while his pitch was faltering, he pitched to his advantage rather than forcefully throwing it into the strike zone.
In the background, there was advice from catcher Seong-Woo Jang.
Bae Seong-seong said, “Seong-woo hyung said, ‘Let’s throw a little slower.
kt, which fell to the bottom of the league at the beginning of the season, is now in third place with a terrifying rise.
Although there is a slight gap with the leader LG Twins by 9 games, 2nd place SSG Landers is within range by 3 games.
Bae Seong-seong said, “When I look at it calmly, LG is a little far away, and I think it’s worth trying until the second place, so I want to fight without giving up until the end.”
The Hangzhou Asian Games period, when the league is not suspended, is a golden opportunity for kt.
In the Asian Games, two kt players, infielder Kang Baek-ho and pitcher Park Young-hyun, were selected.
Although Park Young-hyeon, the core of the bullpen, has a gap, Kang Baek-ho is currently unable to play, so there is no big gap.
On the other hand, LG is missing Ko Woo-seok, Moon Bo-kyung, and Jung Woo-young, and SSG is missing core players such as Park Seong-han and Choi Ji-hoon.
In NC, which is competing for third place, three people were selected, including Hyungjun Kim, Changmo Koo, and Joowon Kim.
Bae Seong-seong said, “I hope the national team participating for the country will achieve good results.”
