There was a reason why the adversary praised it highly.
NC Dinos Eric Peddy won his 6th win of the season by fighting the Hanwha Eagles in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 14th in the 6th game of the season with 6 innings and 2 runs.
Peddy is one of the players currently dominating the KBO league. On this day, he played 7 games before the game, recording 5 wins and 1 loss with an ERA of 1.02. He has five quality starts (three earned runs or less in six innings of starts), and his on-base percentage per inning is only 0.95. Both wins and average ERA are first.

Red captain Hong Won-gi, coach Kiwoom, also said, “We had a confrontation in Changwon once, but it is not an easy ball to attack. Currently, Peddie is evaluated as the best pitcher among the nine club pitchers except for our team. He has a very good pitch,” he said. He continued, “The key is to attack Peddy’s misspellings, but if there are no misspellings, we lose.”
Peddie struck out Lee Jung-hoo and Park Chan-hyuk in a row, then gave consecutive hits to Kim Hye-sung and Edison Russell, facing a crisis on 1st and 3rd base, but ended the first inning by turning Lee Won-seok to a ground ball.
In the second inning, Lim Ji-yeol was treated as a fly ball in right field, showing a good start. However, he gave up a hit to Kim Hwi-jip and a wild fight came out right away. He shook Lim Byeong-wook with a 1-run chase hit. Afterwards, he struck out Dong-Hun Kim and grounded Jung-Hoo Lee. There were no more mistakes.
In the third inning, he finished the inning neatly with a three-way exit. In the 4th inning, Lee Won-seok and Lim Ji-yeol struck out in a row and then Kim Hui-jip walked, but Kim Dong-heon turned the center fielder into a floating ball and showed a neat pitch. The fifth was a flawless inning.
In the 6th inning, Kim Hye-seong started off smoothly with a floating ball in left field, but he dedicated a surprise solo shot to Russell and allowed his third home run of the season. He gave up a home run, but then calmly built up a two-out count.스포츠토토
Peddy’s role ended here. Peddy passed the mound to Kim Young-gyu before the start of the bottom of the 7th inning. On this day, Peddie recorded 6 hits, 7 strikeouts and 2 runs in 6 innings. On this day he threw 99 balls. His highest speed was 154 km. He threw 44 slubs, which are halfway between a curveball and a slider, as well as two-seam, cutter, and changeup, shaking opponents’ batting line.
As the team took the victory, Peddie’s victory also went up. It’s already the 6th win of the season. Tied for first place in most wins, the average ERA rose slightly from 1.02 to 1.26, but still maintained the first place in average ERA.
Peddie’s landing operation in Korea is proceeding smoothly.
After the game, NC coach Kang In-kwon said, “Peddy, the starting player, took responsibility for 6 innings like an ace and laid the foundation for victory.”
