KT Cuevas, who was the strongest pitcher in August, faced LG in his first appearance in September and was hit hard. It was fortunate that the game was stopped due to heavy rain.
Cuevas started as a starter in the game against LG held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 5th. He pitched poorly, allowing 7 hits, 1 home run, 2 walks, and 4 runs in 3 innings.토토사이트
Cuevas recorded a quality start plus (less than 3 earned runs in 7 or more innings) in all 5 games in August, demonstrating his impressive ability with 5 wins and an ERA of 0.50 (2 runs in 36 innings). He allowed only 2 runs in 5 games, but on this day against LG, he gave up 2 runs only in the 2nd inning and collapsed with 4 runs.
Before facing LG on this day, Cuevas recorded 8 wins, no losses, and an ERA of 2.63 in 12 games this season. However, their performance against LG was not good. He appeared in two games and performed poorly with no wins or losses and an ERA of 11.25. He allowed 4 runs in 5 innings and 6 runs in 3 innings.
Manager Lee Kang-cheol said about Cuevas ahead of the LG game on the 5th, “I didn’t say anything separately. The pitcher and catcher are preparing (for the game), but when the manager tells them what to do, confusion arises. Before, after the first game against LG, “I was wondering why it seemed so right, but it gets messed up every time we play against LG. He throws the ball over 150km, gets one strange hit in the beginning, and allows a big inning.”
This day was no different. He had a hit after two outs in the first inning, but was able to block it without allowing any runs. However, in the second inning, he threw a 144 km fastball to leadoff hitter Moon Bo-kyung and hit a solo home run that went over the center field fence.
Afterwards, he was hit by Oh Ji-hwan and a sacrifice bunt put him on second base with one out. A wild pitch sent a runner to third base, and Moon Seong-ju’s ground ball to second base allowed the second run. Even after allowing a run, Park Hae-min and Hong Chang-ki had consecutive hits and Shin Min-jae was walked, putting the bases loaded with two outs. Kim Hyun-soo had to get an out with a fly ball and avoid giving up a large number of runs.
However, they gave up another run in the third inning. Back-to-back hits to Austin and Moon Bo-kyung, and a straight walk to Oh Ji-hwan brought on the danger of the bases being loaded with no outs. Heo Do-hwan was allowed a sacrifice fly, giving up his third point. With one out and runners on second and third base, Seongju Moon allowed one additional point through an infield ground ball. Heavy rain poured down ahead of the top of the 4th inning, and the game was suspended for 104 minutes before resuming, so Cuevas was unable to take the mound in the 4th inning.
Cuevas failed to break the jinx on this day, allowing 4 runs in 3 innings, and his performance against LG this season was poor, with 14 runs in 3 games, 11 innings, and an average ERA of 11.45. He has appeared in a total of 8 games against LG, with no wins and 3 losses. It won’t work out if you only deal with LG.
