KT’s Cuevas throws seven innings of no-hit ball for first time in eight games since returning to the KBO

SUWON, South Korea (AP) – KT Wiz foreign pitcher William Cuevas pitched a no-hitter for the first time since returning to the KBO.Cuevas started the game against the 온라인카지노 SSG Landers at Katie Wiz Park in Suwon on Feb. 2 and pitched seven innings of 89 pitches with six hits, five walks and no strikeouts.Cuevas, who was a key part of KT’s first integrated title in 2021, returned to Korea in June after being sidelined with an injury early last season.Since returning to the KBO, Cuevas has been a bit uneven, going 3-0 with a 4.58 ERA in seven games, including this one, and effectively shut down the league’s second-place SSG offense.He finished his assignment without allowing an earned run for the first time in his eight games back, using a fastball that topped out at 150 mph and a mix of slider, cutter, changeup, and curveball.Cuevas had only two innings with three outs, and the rest of the time he steadily stranded runners.Instead, he allowed only one runner to reach base per inning to keep the threat at bay.Against Cuevas, SSG ace Kim Kwang-hyun also had a stellar outing.With seven innings of four-hit ball, three walks, two strikeouts, and one earned run, he did exactly what he was supposed to do as a starter.It’s the first time in five games that Kwang-hyun has had a Quality Start Plus (7+ innings and 3 earned runs or less) since last month’s 30th game against the Kiwoom Heroes.After a scoreless inning, Kwang-hyun gave up a run in the fourth inning off Hwang Jae-gyun.After allowing a leadoff double to Anthony Alford, Kwang-hyun walked Moon Sang-chul 온라인카지노 and Jang Jang-woo to load the bases with two outs.But he gave up a two-run double to Hwang Jae-gyun off the left field fence, and that’s when he was pulled from the game
