KT Cuevas, A Strong Starting Pitcher for the Opening Game, Says he is Satisfied with his First Bullpen Pitch

KT Wiz’s ace William Cuevas (33), who is likely to start the opening game of the professional baseball season,

improved his physical condition by throwing a fastball at 140 km/h in his first bullpen pitch after joining spring camp. 카지노

On the 16th, Cuevas threw a total of 13 fastballs and breaking balls at Hyundai Motor Company Dream Ball Park in Gijang-gun, Busan.

The highest speed of the fastball was 141.6 km/h.

William Cuevas said, “In the U.S., I focused on improving my lower body flexibility,” and added,

“I haven’t fully adapted to the jet lag yet, but I think I threw the ball satisfactorily.”

Until recently, he had been doing personal training in the United States,

but after returning to the country on the 14th, he resumed his training after adjusting to the time difference.

Cuevas is highly likely to start in the opening game of the 2024 season against the Samsung Lions to be held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 23rd of next month.

In an interview with Yonhap News on the 15th, coach Lee Kang-cheol indirectly hinted at Cuevas’

appearance when asked about the starting pitcher for the opening game, saying, “(The opponent) is Samsung.”

Cuevas has many good memories against Samsung,

including starting the game against Samsung in the 2021 regular season first place game after two days of rest and leading the team to the win with 7 scoreless innings.

He achieved good results last season with one win and an ERA of 2.84 in two games against Samsung.

Kt-SSG, Draw After 5 Hours and 2 Minutes of Fierce Battle… SSG Fell to 5th Place

Professional baseball teams KT Wiz and SSG Landers were unable to decide the winner after a fierce battle lasting 5 hours and 2 minutes, the longest this season.

The two teams drew 8-8 in the professional baseball 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League match held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 9th.

SSG lost 4th place to the KIA Tigers, who won both the LG Twins and the double header on this day, and fell to 5th place. 카지노사이트

Second-place KT reduced its lead over first-place LG from 6.5 games to 5.5 games.

The two teams, who had 13 (KT) and 10 (SSG) hits the previous day,

swung their bats like crazy on this day as well.

KT took the lead.

KT Wiz

In the bottom of the first inning, KT Wiz had an opportunity

with no outs on first and second base thanks to Kim Min-hyuk’s hit and Kim Sang-soo’s walk,

but Hwang Jae-gyun hit a double play, but Park Byeong-ho scored with a timely hit to left-center.

In the bottom of the second inning, he hit the opposing team’s starting pitcher, Won-seok Oh.

With Anthony Alford’s walk and Oh Yun-seok’s advanced base hit with 2 outs and runners on second base,

Ho-yeon Lee’s infield hit and SSG catcher Cho Hyeong-woo’s foil allowed them to get away with one more run.

SSG resisted fiercely.

3rd Inning

In the top of the 3rd inning, when they were down 0-2,

KT’s starting pitcher Min Kim gave them 4 hits and 3 walks and made a comeback to 5-2.

KT immediately counterattacked.

In the bottom of the third inning, Jae-gyun Hwang and Byeong-ho Park made up for one point with consecutive hits, and with no outs on first base,

a catching error by shortstop Park Seong-han and Alford’s timely double to the left field tied the score at 5-5.

In the ensuing runners on 2nd and 3rd bases with 1 out, Oh Yoon-seok’s walk filled the bases,

then pinch hitter Moon Sang-cheol hit a sacrifice hit to turn the score around 6-5.

KT ran away from the attack in the bottom of the 5th inning.

Leadoff hitter Alford reached base with a strike-out,

not-out foil against the changed pitcher, Lee Geon-wook,

then settled at third base with advanced base hits by Oh Yoon-seok and Shin Bon-ki.

Afterwards, Kim Min-hyuk got a walk and succeeded in stealing base,

making the 2nd and 3rd bases with 2 outs, and the follow-up hitter Kim Sang-soo exploded

with a timely sweep double that went over the left fielder’s height to get up to 8-5.

SSG Landers

SSG’s counterattack was not easy.

KT tied the score again in the 7th inning as the mound shook.

After one out, KT Son Dong-hyun allowed three consecutive hits to Choi Joo-hwan,

Han Yu-seom, and Ha Jae-hoon, allowing the game to trail to 8-6.

In the ensuing game, with 2 outs and runners on 1st and 3rd base,

Park Young-Hyeon hit a timely double from Jo Hyeong-Woo that went over the left fielder’s height, making the score 8-8.

Afterwards, neither team scored until the 9th inning, and the game went into overtime.

For KT, closing pitcher Kim Jae-yoon went 3 innings without allowing a run from the 9th to 11th inning, and for SSG,

veteran Noh Kyeong-eun lasted 2⅓ innings without allowing a run starting with 2 outs in the 8th inning.

The two teams were unable to decide the winner in the end.

SSG Landers failed to take advantage of the opportunity to reach second base with no outs in the top of the 12th inning,

KT also failed to score when it had a chance to reach first base with two outs in the bottom of the 12th inning.

On this day, both teams fielded a total of 12 pitchers, 6 each.

Sutton pleased with second consecutive rainout, says players met to deliver message

“We’re hopeful enough.”

Lotte Giants manager Larry Sutton smiled after a second straight rainout. Lotte had its game against the LG Twins in Jamsil on the 23rd canceled due to rain. It was the second consecutive game to be canceled. The Giants, who have been traveling in the Seoul metropolitan area since last weekend’s three-game series against the 토토사이트 Kiwoom Heroes in Gocheok, will not play a game for three consecutive days starting Monday, a day off. The team has also adjusted its starting rotation. Aaron Wilkerson, who was expected to start for LG Electronics, was kept on the bench for two consecutive days and will finally start against KT Wiz at home on April 25.

Sutton didn’t seem too worried about the cancellation for the second day in a row. “It will help us in this situation. It’s a team situation. Before yesterday’s game was canceled, we hadn’t had a game canceled in five weeks. Earlier in the season, we had a lot of rainouts, but during the rainy season, we were able to avoid them. If we don’t play now, our pitchers and hitters will have plenty of time to recover,” he said.

Instead, Sutton called a team meeting on the 22nd, the day the game was canceled, to deliver his message. Lotte had a roller-coaster week last week, picking up the pace again with a three-game sweep of the SSG Landers at home, only to be swept by Kiwoom in Gochuk, but there is still hope. They’re currently in seventh place, but they’re only two games back of fifth-place Doosan and three games back of fourth-place NC. They can still climb back into the top half of the standings at any time.

Coach Sutton also told the players, “We have 40 games left. It’s the last third. We’re going to be tired, we’re going to be exhausted, but we’re at a point where other teams are tired too. We have enough hope and we can go up. We just have to have a good balance of focus and stay focused on the game day by day.”

Sutton added: “I think this is the point where the fans enjoy it the most. Our recent form hasn’t been bad, so it’s definitely possible.”
