“I didn’t take the mound in the 8th inning”…Feddy, the ‘KBO MVP’, shined with two runs in eight ⅓ innings and a ‘life fight.’

“I’ve never pitched in the ninth inning, as well as the eighth inning in the Major League.”

Eric Peddy (Chicago White Sox), the KBO League MVP and KBO League reverse export legend last year, also showed a surprising pitching, driving the team’s series sweep.

In a game against the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2024 Major League held at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois, on the 29th (Korea time), he started for the sixth time this season. In the final eight ⅓, he had seven hits (one homer) and nine strikeouts, no four walks, and no loss. He has garnered his second win (no loss) in this season by displaying the most throws in a single game in his history. He won the game in two games after the Kansas City Royals (one run in five ⅔ innings) on the 18th.

◆ Lead the team’s first sweep of the season…Peddy must have had a heavy shoulder

The White Sox played three consecutive home games against Tampa Bay. They also took the lead in both of their previous two games (9-4 wins on May 27 and 8-7 wins on May 28), leaving one step ahead of their first win in a clean sweep of the season. And Peddy took the mound with a heavy responsibility. His shoulder was dependent on his team’s three consecutive wins and sweeping victory.

Starting with starting pitcher Peddy, the White Sox were deployed as Nicky López (2nd baseman), Tommy Pham (middle fielder), Gavin Sitz (1st baseman), Eloy Jiménez (designated hitter), Andrew Benintendi (left fielder), Robbie Grossman (right fielder), Danny Mendic (3rd baseman), Corey Lee (catcher) and Brandon Schumake (striker).

In response, Tampa Bay made up the starting list with Yandy Diaz (first baseman), Rich Palacios (right fielder), Ahmed Rosario (striker), Isaac Paredes (third baseman), Harold Ramirez (left fielder), Austin Shenton (designated hitter), Curtis Mead (second baseman), Jose Siri (center fielder) and Rene Pinto (catcher), and starting pitcher Jack Latello.

◆”KBO MVP mode”…”Life to Life” Peddy was perfect

Throughout the game, Peddy showed off his powerful pitching.

Early in the game, Pedi was a bit shaky. With one out in the top of the first inning, he had consecutive hits by Palacios and Rosario, and was on the verge of losing points with one out and runners on the first and second bases. Paredes, the opponent team’s No. 4, took the batter’s box. However, Pedi calmly pitched his ball, and did not lose points as he handled Paredes with a fly ball to the first base and Ramirez with a swing strikeout.

He regained stability after crossing the top of the first inning, his first start. In the top of the second inning, he had his first three outs, and in the top of the third inning, he got a right-handed hit by Palacios with two outs, but he caught Rosario with a fly ball to center field to finish the inning.

The first loss was in the top of the fourth inning. Sinker threw to Paredes, the leadoff hitter, singled. He hit a solo shot over the left fence, allowing 0-1 to take the lead. With the ball count at a disadvantage of 3-1, Sinker, who threw to catch the count, flocked to the middle of the strike zone and allowed a home run. Afterwards, Peddy hit a double by Shenton with one out, but managed to block additional loss by returning Mead to the left field and Siri to the second base. 먹튀검증

As Peddy continued to display good pitching, the batting lineup also gained strength. The batting lineup showed concentration after two outs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Grossman’s timely hit, with runners at first and second bases with two outs, balanced the game with 1-1. Then, with runners at first and third bases with two outs, Mendy hit a timely hit, bringing the team’s lead to 2-1.
