Despite not having enough time to recover physically, Cuevas was able to redeem himself with a mix of four-seam fastballs (fastballs), two-seam fastballs, and cut fastballs that topped out at 150 mph .Cuevas bounced back with six shutout innings, retiring 17 consecutive batters after the first batter, Son As-seob, reached on a throwing error by KT third baseman Hwang Jae-gyun. The KT offense pounded out 14 hits, including three home runs, to score 11 runs.

After Kim Sang-soo walked to load the bases, Hwang Jae-gyun drove in a run with a double to the left field wall. KT put runners on second and third in the third inning with singles by Jang Sung-woo and Oh Yoon-seok .In Oh’s case, what should have been runners at first and third became runners at second and third when NC center fielder Jason Martin’s throw to the infield went over the head of first baseman Oh Young-soo, who was covering second base.
After capitalizing on a sloppy play by the opponent that was not recorded as an error, KT scored two more runs on a single up the middle by Choi Jae-dae .In the fourth inning, Hwang Jae-gyun, who appeared as the leadoff hitter, hit a solo arch over the left field wall. It made up for a throwing error in the first inning .Two batters later, Jang Jang-woo hit a solo shot to center field, giving KT two runs in the first through fourth innings to make it 8-0.NC only broke the no-hit streak in the bottom of the sixth inning when Son Ah-seop singled to left.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, when KT extended its lead to 11-0 with a solo shot by Alford, Oh Young-soo doubled to left field and Seo Ho-cheol singled to left to put runners on first and third, and Park Se-hyuk broke the silence with a single to left. Son As-seob added a run with a single to left. However, the pendulum had already swung in KT’s favor .From the fourth inning of the second game to the seventh inning of the fourth game, KT continued its streak 카지노사이트킹 of 22 consecutive scoreless innings, setting a new PO record for consecutive scoreless innings.
