The starting rotation has been consistently turned.”

KT Wiz won 5-4 in a confrontation with Hanwha Eagles in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 19th. On the same day, they overtook SSG Landers, who lost to the LG Twins, and took second place.

KT had a hard time at the beginning of the season due to injuries to key players. As of June 2, 16 wins, 2 draws and 30 losses, the win-loss margin was -14, staying at the bottom. However, the atmosphere was reversed by the players returning from injury and the good pitching of the starting pitchers. Currently, they are in second place with 57 wins, 2 draws and 46 losses. The atmosphere is good with 8 wins and 2 losses in the last 10 games.

One of the reasons KT succeeded in rebounding is the performance of the starting pitchers. William Cuevas, who returned as a substitute foreign pitcher for Vosulser, joined, and the starting rotation of Cuevas, Wes Benjamin, Koh Young-pyo, Eom Sang-baek, and Bae Jae-seong returned without much shake.

In particular, Exclusiveness filled the vacancy of Joon So Sohn well. So Joon So-jun was canceled from the first team entry due to forearm muscle pain at the beginning of this season and returned in May, but felt elbow pain again. Eventually, he was diagnosed with a torn ligament in his elbow and was put on the operating table. He is expected to return next season after undergoing rehabilitation after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Bae Seong-seong was scheduled to play as a bullpen pitcher this season, but with the departure of So Joon So-jun, he joined the starting rotation and has been playing steadily so far. His performance this season is 19 games (17 starts) 6 wins 6 losses 96⅓ innings 48 runs (42 earned) average ERA of 3.92.

Exclusiveness was shaken with 4 runs (4 earned runs) in 5 innings against Hanwha on the 19th, but played a big role in KT’s rise by pitching quality starts (QS, 6 innings or more and 3 earned runs or less) in the previous 3 consecutive games.메이저놀이터

Director Lee Kang-cheol also praised the performance of Bae Seong-seong. He met with reporters before the match against the Doosan Bears in Jamsil on the 17th and said, “(Bae) Je-seong’s role was very important,” and “(So) Hyeong-jun took the missing position and Je-seong steadily returned to the starting rotation.” revealed

Then, he said, “The team is managed by running the starting rotation normally. Also, Jeseong won more victories than I thought,” and added, “Hyeongjun’s position was well filled by Jeseong.”

KT, who occupied the second place, begins to solidify the rankings. On the 20th, against Hanwha, Cuevas will start. If KT wins, it will achieve 10 consecutive winning series. The Hanwha selection is Felix Pena.
