A strong performance recognized by the enemy. KT Wiz head coach Lee Kang-cheol praised the pitching of opposing foreign pitcher Felix Peña.카지노
Peña pitched seven innings of four-hit ball, striking out nine and allowing one run (unearned) against KT at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on April 27. He mixed a fastball that topped out at 152 kilometers per hour with a changeup and slider to cook KT hitters.
KT, which was leading the league in batting average (.291) in June prior to this game, had no choice but to take advantage of Peña’s pitches.
Unable to capitalize on Peña, KT lost 1-4.
Peña joined Hanwha as a substitute last year and went 5-4 with a 3.72 ERA in 13 games. This year, he went 6-4 with a 3.05 ERA in 15 games. He surpassed his win total from last year before the first half was over. In particular, he has been cruising in June, going 2-0 with a 2.27 ERA.
While he was disappointed with the loss, he did recognize that Peña threw a good game. Lee, a former pitcher, is a legend in his own right, having won 152 games in his career.
He knows a good pitcher when he sees one. “I think he’s better than Eric Peddy (NC),” Lee said. Peddie has been one of the best pitchers in the KBO since the beginning of the season. He is 10-1 with a 1.74 ERA in 12 games. With 10 wins in 12 games, he tied the KBO record for fewest wins in 10 games.
“His changeup was good, his fastball was good. All of his pitches were good, and his command was good,” Lee said, adding, “There was nothing to criticize about yesterday’s game. You have to give credit where credit is due.”
He also said, “Once he settled down on the mound, he became a tough opponent.”
