“In the second half, I want to lead the team to many victories with more stable pitching.”
Ace William Cuevas, who returned to KT Wiz, started Game 11 of the season against Kiwoom Heroes in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 12th and played 6.2 innings, 7 hits, 7 strikeouts and 3 runs. Together, they added strength to the 7th place jump.
Cuevas joined as a substitute foreign player for Bossulser, who was recently released due to poor performance. Cuevas is an unforgettable presence for KT fans. While at KT, Cuevas played an active part in 82 games, 33 wins, 23 losses, and an average ERA of 3.89. In the 2021 season, he played an active part in the combined championship.메이저놀이터
I left the team last season due to an injury, but I have never forgotten KT. He ran straight to KT’s love call.
As soon as he arrived, he was doing a great job. He has 2 wins in 5 games and an ERA of 4.13. He has not yet had a scoreless game and has a rather high ERA, but as a starting pitcher, he is consistently responsible for more than 5 innings.
After the game, KT coach Lee Kang-cheol also praised, saying, “Cuevas gave up three runs in the first half, but after that, his aggressive pitching worked well and did his part.”
After the game, Cuevas said, “There were walks, but I am satisfied with the overall pitches.”
Before the game on this day, it was not good with 4 wins and 5 losses and an average ERA of 4.35 against Kiwoom. However, Cuevas said, “I wasn’t very conscious of the relative performance with Kiwoom. He always prepared for the game by keeping a routine as if he were against all teams.”
“After returning to the KBO league, I haven’t played a few games yet, but it doesn’t seem to have changed much from before. However, I also got to know the opponent hitters a lot, and the opponent seems to have gotten used to me, so interesting matches are expected.”
At the beginning of the season, KT fell to the bottom of the season due to injuries to key players, but it was not strong enough, but now it is coming up. Along with the jump to 7th place, the game difference with Lotte Giants in 4th place is only 2.5 games. A figure that is sufficient to catch up.
Cuevas said, “I finished the last appearance in the first half, but in the second half, I want to lead many teams to victory with a little more stable pitching.” I am grateful that you always support me, and I will repay you with good grades, so I hope you will support me a lot.”
