It was like an iron wall.
KT Wiz’s foreign pitcher William Cuevas once again dominated the Hanwha Eagles’ batting lineup. He started in the first game of the doubleheader held at Daejeon Baseball Stadium on the 17th and threw a perfect pitch, allowing 6 hits and no runs in 7 innings. He threw 94 pitches, gave up two walks, and struck out five. He led the team to a 7-0 Youngbong win.
He achieved 9 wins in the 15th game of the season. He joined as a substitute last June and posted 9 consecutive wins without a loss.
If you meet Hanwha, you are invincible. He pitched three times and won three times.
He pitched well in the previous two games in a row. In his first game on August 8, he pitched 7 innings, allowing 1 run, and on August 20, he pitched 7 scoreless innings.
On this day, he allowed 1 run in 21 innings until the game. He has an earned run average of 0.43.
Hanwha also consistently sent runners into scoring range, but did not come up with a decisive hit.

Coincidentally, the opportunity to score came with two outs.
KT’s batting line effectively targeted Hanwha’s starter Ricardo Sanchez from the beginning.
In the top of the first inning, with one out and one out, No. 2 Hwang Jae-gyun hit a double in the rain, and No. 3 Kang Baek-ho hit a timely hit in the middle. We easily scored the first point and set the tone. 1-0.
In the top of the 4th inning with a 1-0 lead, an additional point was added. Leadoff hitter No. 4 Park Byeong-ho hits a heavy hit and reaches first base with no outs. No. 5 Anthony Alford hit a two-run home run. Season No. 13. He caught the changeup thrown by Sanchez and flew it over the fence in left center of Daejeon Baseball Stadium.안전놀이터
