NC erased the lethargic appearance during the first practice game and won the second practice game against KT in a come-from-behind victory. Starting pitcher Eric Peddy (30) played a scoreless game, and the bullpen pitchers also kept the victory until the end. On the other hand, KT started off smoothly with starting pitcher Bo Shulser (29) recording a fastball speed of 152 km, but the pitchers who came up after that day suffered a loss after experiencing difficult pitches such as wild throws and push walks.
On the 4th (hereinafter referred to as Korean time), NC won 4-2 in the second practice game against KT held at Tucson Kino Sports Complex in Arizona, USA, thanks to starter Pedy’s good fighting and ‘Captain’ Son Ah-seop and Oh Tae-yang’s timely hits. In addition, outfielder Cheon Jae-hwan contributed to the victory by recording multi-hits. 안전놀이터
Starter Peddy gave up one walk in two innings, but showed off perfect pitching with three strikeouts and no hits. With a total of 33 pitches, he threw a mix of two-seam fastballs, curveballs, cutters, and changeups to block KT’s batters. The highest speed of the two-seam fastball was 149 km. It was the first real match as NC’s new foreign one-two punch, but he showed off a satisfactory pitch.
After the game, Peddie said, “It was the pitching I was most satisfied with after coming to camp. The slub, which I still need to study more, is gradually being equipped with the pitch I want,” he said. I will prepare well so that I can continue to feel good,” he said.
Following Pedy, NC Lee Joon-ho (2 innings, 1 run) – Shin Min-hyeok (2 innings, 1 run) – Kim Young-gyu (1 inning) – Lim Jeong-ho (1 inning) – Ryu Jin-wook (1 inning) took the mound in turn and secured the victory by 2 points. .
