5th one-hit victory in KBO League career. The hidden driving force of the NC Dinos lies in the high mound.
On the 15th, NC won the team 1 hit against SSG Landers in Incheon and won 1-0. NC failed to create a proper attacking opportunity on this day. At the beginning of the first inning, he withdrew from 1 out and 3 base with 3 consecutive hitters, and was silent until the 5th inning. In the 6th inning, it was difficult to build runners with 2 walks, but the result was scoreless this time again. Even in the top of the ninth inning, there was a chance with a walk and a sand dune, but it was silent again. The NC batters were tied up with no hits until the ninth inning without hitting a single hit. It was a risk of being awarded a no-hit spot.
Then, in the top of the 10th inning,메이저사이트 Park Min-woo finally scored the team’s first hit against Choi Min-joon with two outs on first and second base, and called in a runner. It was the final blow that sealed the 1-0 victory.
With the victory on this day, NC set a tie record for the least hits. A one-hit win. It is the 5th record in KBO league history.
However, behind the one-hit victory, the real driving force behind NC’s rise is hidden. The secret to winning with one hit was that starting pitcher Chang-mo Koo led 8⅔ innings scoreless, and finisher Lee Yong-chan perfectly blocked 1⅓ innings.
That’s also the case, NC is doing a propaganda that goes beyond predictions at the beginning of the opening. It is 3rd out of 10 clubs with 8 wins and 5 losses until the 15th. He has a win rate of over 60% (0.615). There is a mound at the base. As of the 15th, NC has the lowest team ERA (2.29). The on-base percentage per inning is also 1.21, the lowest among the 10 clubs. The number of home runs is the lowest (4), and the number of hits is also the lowest (0.207). Even though one foreign starting pitcher is out due to injury, there is a sense of stability based on the strong pitching of young pitchers such as Song Myeong-ki, Shin Min-hyuk, and Lee Yong-jun and a solid bullpen.
Gu Chang-mo’s strong fight against SSG was rather the completion of the last puzzle NC had. Koo Chang-mo, who was expected to play the role of ‘domestic ace’, has been sluggish in two games since the opening. He even said to himself, “I couldn’t throw my ball even when I saw it, and I threw it without confidence.” Following the good fight of the existing young selection resources, the future calculation is much more hopeful as even Gu Chang-mo survives.
In NC, key hitters such as Eui-ji Yang and Jin-hyuk Noh left ahead of this season. In particular, the empty seat in the center of the batting line, where Yang Eui-ji was missing, was greatly felt. This is the reason why director Kang In-kwon, such as ‘Park Se-hyeok No. 2’, experimented. However, every team on the other line has cycles. On the other hand, the depth of the mound is less undulating. In the bullpen, Lee Yong-chan took center stage and gained a sense of weight. Director Kang In-kwon also praised him, saying, “Lee Yong-chan is setting a good example for his juniors in many ways.” The performance NC shows at the beginning of the season clearly exceeds the evaluation of experts who were considered weak powers.
