The 14-win super ace collapsed! ‘Individual maximum 5 runs + 9 hits’… Pedy, ERA 1.74 → 2.10 vertical rise 

 The first game I’ve seen this year unfolded. The reputation of the ‘Super Ace’ that commanded the KBO League was cracked.메이저놀이터

Are you surprised by the heat in Korea? NC Dinos Eric Peddy failed to fill 5 innings for the first time this year.

Peddy started the 10th game of the season against the Lotte Giants held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 2nd, and was replaced after allowing 5 runs on 9 hits, including a home run, in just 4 innings. The number of pitches was 78.

It is the game with the least innings, the most runs, and the most hits since debuting in the KBO League. Previously, 5 innings (3 times), 3 runs, and 7 hits were the most records.

Peddie had an overwhelming record of 14 wins, 2 losses, and an ERA of 1.74 in 17 starts before the game. He was the only pitcher with an earned run average of 1, and with 121 strikeouts, he was second in the category behind An Woo-jin (146). Although the number of innings seems a bit low, 103⅓ is more than the average of 6 innings per game. Quality starts (less than 3 earned runs in 6 or more innings) were 12 times.

The day started off well too. Kim Min-seok struck out Gudrum in a row and ended the first inning with a three-person withdrawal.

However, he was shaken from the bottom of the second inning. Jeon Jun-woo, Lee Jung-hoon, and Park Seung-wook allowed three consecutive hits and gave them the first run.

Pedy’s unusual impatience was evident in the next scene. In the following situation with the bases loaded with one company, Jeong Bo-geun’s hit was a floating ball in front of Lotte Dugout on the first base side. Generally, it is the ball that the first baseman and catcher will handle.

However, Peddy refused the call from first baseman Hyungjun Yoon and ran directly to catch it. It was a rare scene. Pitchers often leave balls that fly over their heads to infielders. In the end, Ahn Kwon-soo’s at-bat uncharacteristically threw a wild throw in which the changeup fell out of his hand, and Lotte scored the second run.

Hitters and pitchers exchange flows. Some games are won by a pitcher’s good pitch, and conversely, there are plenty of cases where a pitcher’s fire bat helps a shaken pitcher.

Peddy overcame the crisis at the end of the 3rd inning without losing a run, and the NC lineup overturned the game by scoring 1 point in the 3rd inning and 2 points in the 4th inning.

However, this day’s pedi was different from usual. At the end of the 4th inning, Jeong Bo-geun’s unexpected two-run four came out at 1st base. Jung Bo-geun hit the 130km curve on Pedi’s 2nd pitch with a ball count of 0-1, and crossed the left fence as it was. It was a cool shot with a flight distance of 110m. Pedy even directed a rare appearance of sitting down as it is.

The shaken Pedi allowed Kim Min-seok to double and Gudrum to hit timely, giving one more point, and was replaced with Kim Si-hoon ahead of the defense in the top of the 5th inning. It was an absolute ace’s rare shaking. His ERA soared to 2.10.

Lotte starter Barnes, after overcoming several obstacles, achieved a quality start with 109 pitches with 3 runs in 6 innings, contrasting with Peddy.
