“I can’t put it off anymore.”
Eric Peddy (30, NC Dinos), a superstar ace with 20 wins, 209 Ks, and a 2.00 ERA. Finally, a date has been set for his return and postseason debut. Manager Kang Myung-hyun made the announcement before Game 2 of the semifinals against the SSG Landers on April 23, confirming that he will start Game 3.
Pedi was removed from the game in the sixth inning against the Gwangju Kia Tigers on April 16 after being hit in the back of the head by a pitch from second baseman Ko Jong-wook. If he had gotten one more out, he would have lowered his ERA to 1.99 and become just the second pitcher in history since Seon Dong-yeol in 1986 to have a 20-win, 200-K, and sub-1 ERA, but he settled for his fifth 20-win, 200-K season. 온라인카지노
NC sent Pedi out for Game 16 with the intention of using him as a reliever for Game 2 on the 19th if they played the Wild Card Decision Game and Game 1 on the 22nd if they went straight to the semi-finals, but it didn’t work out, as NC won the Wild Card Decision Game against the Doosan Bears and the first game of the semi-finals against SSG without Pedi.
If NC takes Game 2 on the 23rd, they will go home with a 2-0 series lead and a golden opportunity to close out the series with Pedi. Coach Kang Myung-hwa agreed with the analysis that this would make SSG psychologically chase and allow NC to play comfortably. Of course, they didn’t let their guard down.
Pedi improved his condition with 19 bullpen pitches on the 22nd, and he also fulfilled his personal training on this day.
