2023 professional baseball’s first complete
Eric Peddy (NC Dinos), the best pitcher in professional baseball this year, unfortunately missed the first shutout pitch in professional baseball in 2023 with two outs left.
Peddie started the home game against the Lotte Giants at Changwon NC Park in Gyeongsangnam-do on the 10th and tied the Lotte batting lineup with 0 runs, allowing only 2 hits and striking out 9 until the 8th inning. Not a single walk was given.
However, in the 9th inning, when the team was ahead 3-0, the first batter, Yoo Kang-nam, hit an infield hit toward the third baseman, and after one out, he gave up a left-field double to Yoon Dong-hee, giving him one run. 고스톱사이트
Peddie handed the mound to Lee Yong-chan with two outs.
Lee Yong-chan did not concede any additional goals, so the game ended in a 3-1 NC victory.
Peddie, who gave up 1 run in 8 ⅓ innings, won 8 consecutive home games, accumulated 18 wins (6 losses) for the season, and lowered his ERA to 2.21 to solidify first place in both categories.
In Japanese professional baseball, there were 37 shutouts in the two major leagues this year, and in the two major American professional baseball leagues, there were 19 shutouts, but in the KBO league, there was not a single shutout until today, when 83% of the entire schedule was played.
NC easily took the lead in the third inning with Choi Jeong-won’s Woo-sang triple and Son A-seop’s ground ball.
In the 5th inning, consecutive doubles by Son Ah-seop and Seo Ho-cheol, Lotte third baseman Park Seung-wook’s error, and Jason Martin’s timely hit to right added two runs.
Lotte was disappointed that Ahn Chi-hong’s hit in the 9th inning with 2 outs and runners on second base was caught by NC shortstop Kim Joo-won’s picturesque diving catch.
