KT Wiz is racking up the metallurgical multiplier

KT Wiz is racking up the metallurgical multiplier. Can they produce another ‘magical season’ this year? They’ve certainly started the chase.

In the first game of a three-game home series against the Kiwoom Heroes on Children’s Day, KT won 2-1 with Rojas’ dramatic finish in extra innings.

Compared to the start of the season, it is a definite upward trend. First, they are 7-3 in their last 10 games. That’s the most wins among the 10 teams, along with the Samsung Lions. The trend itself is upward. After a series of losses, a sweep, and a sweep of the Hanwha Eagles that started on the 23rd of last month, the team gained confidence with a three-game sweep of the Kia Tigers in the middle of the week. In particular, the final game of the three-game series on the second day with the score tied at 1-1 was decisive, as they took down KIA’s Nail, 안전놀이터 추천 who is currently recognized as the best pitcher in the league.

KT, which was full of bad news,

Such as the collapse of the bullpen and injuries to key players such as Ko Young-pyo and Choi Jae-dae, is now feeling like the blood vessels are opening up. First, the foreign one-two punch is coming alive. To be more precise, they are getting lucky. Cuevas, who had been pitching well but not winning, earned his first win of the season last month after throwing six innings with 11 strikeouts and one run against SSG Landers on March 27. He didn’t get the win in extra innings against Kiwoom on March 3, but he pitched seven innings of one-run ball. Benjamin has won all four games since last month’s game against SSG. With the duo firmly in place, KT hasn’t lost back-to-back games, setting the stage for a turnaround.

The most crucial reason for KT’s early collapse was the struggles of closers Park Young-hyun and Seung-jo Son Dong-hyun. Son Dong-hyun has yet to find his form, but KT was able to pull through only because Park Young-hyun picked up the slack around mid-April. It’s worth noting that Young-hyun Park has only given up one run in seven games, starting on April 11 against NC Dinos and ending on April 3 against Kiwoom, with one win and three saves. With such a strong bullpen behind him, Lee Kang-cheol’s newly discovered pitching staff can pitch with confidence.

It is the batting lineup that gives KT hope that they can continue to dominate.

The flow of the batting lineup was very good centered on the top hitters. With Rojas back in the lineup, Kang Baek-ho, Chun Sung-ho, and others can provide some runs. With a little more strength on the mound and the return of injured players, KT can set the tone for a midseason surge, Lee said.

KT was 4-13 as of the 11th of last month. It was a disastrous record of -9 wins out of 5. However, they gradually accumulated wins and now have 14 wins, 1 draw, and 21 losses. Their win percentage in the low 2s has risen to 4. They are in ninth place, 2.5 games back of the last-place Lotte Giants, 2.5 games back of the sixth-place Doosan Bears, and 4.5 games back of the fifth-place LG Twins.

The key will be how many games they win when Cuevas and Benjamin are on the mound, 토토사이트 모음 and how many games they win against the rookie duo of Yook Cheong-myeong and Won Sang-hyun, who Lee is developing in a hurry. If KT wins games featuring the two, the team’s upward trend could continue.

After years of building an image as a “slow starter” under Lee, last year KT finished the regular season in second place after being in last place until June. “KT will take a chance,” says a fan on the field.
