NC Dinos foreign pitcher Eric Peddy won the KBO League September MVP award.
On the 12th, KBO said, “Peddy received 15 out of 31 votes (48.4%) from the press and 166,054 (40.6%) out of 409,495 fan votes, with a total score of 44.47, making him his first individual Monthly MVP. “I was selected,” he said.
He added, “Pedi received the highest support from both reporters and fans.”
Peddie pitched in 4 games in the month of September, posting 3 wins and an ERA of 0.66, and showed amazing strikeout ability by striking out 40 batters in 27⅓ innings.메이저사이트
In the end, Peddie became the first foreign player to achieve the feat of 20 wins and 200 strikeouts.
20 wins and 200 strikeouts are records achieved only by legendary pitchers, including Peddie’s Jang Myeong-bu of the Sammi Superstars in 1983 (30 wins and 220 strikeouts), the late Choi Dong-won of the Lotte Giants in 1984 (27 wins and 223 strikeouts), and 1985. He was listed as the fifth player in history, following Kim Si-jin of the Samsung Lions in 1986 (25 wins, 201 strikeouts) and Seon Dong-yeol of the Haitai Tigers in 1986 (24 wins, 214 strikeouts).
This season, Peddie recorded 20 wins, 6 losses, an ERA of 2.06, and 204 strikeouts, and is also challenging for the ‘Pitcher Triple Crown’, something only three people, including Sun Dong-yeol, Ryu Hyun-jin, and Yoon Seok-min, have achieved.
