The NC Dinos returned to fourth place thanks to Eric Pedi and Park Kun-woo’s pitching and hitting performance.

NC won 2-1 at home against the 2023 KBO League Kiwoom Heroes at NC Park in Changwon on the 5th thanks to Park Kun-woo’s two-run home run. As a result, NC rose to fourth place, beating the KIA Tigers, whose game was canceled due to rain, by half a game.

It was a game in which starting pitcher Pedi clearly dominated the mound. Pedi struck out 11 until the seventh inning and blocked Kiwoom’s batters with two hits and no runs. Pedi, who won his 17th win (6 losses) of the season, lowered his ERA to 2.28, becoming the sole No. 1 player in both categories.

The balance of zero, which had been tense due to the starting match between Peddy and Kiwoom Ian McKinney, collapsed with one home run. NC failed to target Kiwoom McKinney and was dragged without a hit by picking only two walks until the fifth inning.

However, after Son Ah-seop picked up a walk in the bottom of the sixth inning, Park Gun-woo, who went to bat with one out and first base, kicked McKinney’s low-falling change-up and fired a two-run home run to the right.

NC, which led 2-0 with Park Kun-woo’s one shot, defended the team’s victory with Kim Young-kyu in the eighth inning and closer Lee Yong-chan in the top of the ninth inning after Peddy blocked it until the seventh inning. 스포츠토토

Kiwoom recovered one point with Song Sung-moon hitting a triple and Lim Byung-wook hitting a timely hit between left and right after one out in the top of the ninth inning, but failed to turn the game around.
