Chicago White Sox lone ace Erik Peddie (31) is on his way to becoming a KBO reverse export.

Peddie started the 2024 Major League Baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois, U.S., on Monday (Sept. 29), allowing two runs on seven hits (one home run) on 108 pitches in 8 1/3 innings with nine strikeouts and no walks to lead the White Sox to a 4-2 victory. He came up just short of a complete game victory. However, Pedi broke his career high for innings pitched in a game. His previous record was seven innings.

The White Sox improved to 6-22 on the season with their third straight win. They are still in last place in the American League Central.

Peddy picked up his second win of the season and lowered his season ERA to 2.60. That’s good for 12th in the American League. He added nine more strikeouts to his career-high of 11 against the Minnesota Twins on April 24 (six innings, three hits, no walks, 11 strikeouts, one run). With 20 strikeouts in two games, Pedi now has 39 strikeouts on the season.

He is tied for fifth in the American League with Dane Dunning (Texas), behind Logan Gilbert (Seattle, 44), Luis Castillo (Seattle, 42), 카지노사이트 Tarik Skubal (Detroit, 41), and Garrett Croce (White Sox, 40).

On the day, Peddy’s sinker topped out at 94.7 mph

His most common pitch was a sweeper, which he threw 52 times, followed by 25 sinkers, 24 cutters, and seven splitters to get through the inning.

Pedi was in trouble in the first inning. He struck out Yandy Diaz but gave up back-to-back singles to Richie Palacios and Ahmed Rosario to put runners on first and second. But he got Isaac Paredes to fly out to center field and Harold Ramirez to strike out Harold Ramirez on a sweeper to end the threat.

Things settled down in the second. Austin Shenton grounded out to short, Curtis Mead fouled out to first, and Jose Ciri grounded out to the pitcher to end the inning. In the top of the third, he struck out leadoff hitter Rene Pinto on a wild pitch and got Yandy Diaz to ground out to shortstop. Two batters later, Rich Palacios singled to right, but Ahmed Rosario flied out to center field to end the inning.

The leadoff run came in the top of the fourth. He drew a three-pitch, one-strike walk to leadoff hitter Isaac Paredes and threw a 92.5-mph sinker for a solo shot to left. He then got Harold Ramirez to ground out to second and Austin Shenton to double to put runners on first and second, but Curtis Mead flied out to left and Jose Ciri grounded out to second to end the inning without further damage.

In the bottom of the fourth,

The offense scored two more runs to take a 2-1 lead. In the top of the fifth, Pedi got Rene Pinto to fly out to right, Yandy Diaz to strike out, and Richie Palacios to fly out to third to settle down.

Pedi, who had thrown 100 pitches by the eighth inning, returned to the mound in the ninth for the complete game win. He got Ahmed Rosario to fly out to center field. However, he gave up a single to Isaac Paredes and an RBI double to Harold Ramirez. He was unable to get out of the ninth and turned the ball over to Jordan Ledger, who did not allow another run to score and preserved Pedi’s win.

Peddy was drafted by the Nationals in the first round of the 2014 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. After making his major league debut in 2017, he was given the opportunity to be a starter and spent both 2021 and 2022 in the rotation, starting at least 27 games. In 2022, he posted a 6-13 record with a 5.81 ERA in 27 games and 127 innings pitched.

However, after last year’s season, Peddy became a non-tender release.

A first-round prospect, he was given a chance, but his development stalled. Pedi seemed to have hit his ceiling. But last year, he accepted an offer from the NC Dinos of the KBO League to take on a new challenge, and he became one of the best pitchers in KBO history.In the regular season last year, he went 20-6 with a 2.00 ERA (40 earned runs in 180⅓ innings), 209 strikeouts, a 0.95 WHIP, and 21 quality starts in 30 games. He became the fourth pitcher in history to achieve the Triple Crown, leading the league in wins, ERA, and strikeouts, and his 20 wins and 209 strikeouts made him the first pitcher to reach the 20-win and 200-strikeout milestones in 37 years, since Sun Dong-yeol in 1986. He won the league MVP and a Gold Glove as a pitcher.

He then signed a two-year, $15 million contract with the Chicago White Sox, challenging the KBO’s myth of reverse exports. Although the White Sox are one of the worst teams in the league, Pedi has been the ace in the hole. After hitting a wall in Washington, 메이저 토토사이트 Pedi realized his full potential in Korea and is writing his own success story in the major leagues.

On the 29th, NBC Sports reported, “Pedi has 20 strikeouts in two games and 39 strikeouts in six starts this year. He struck out 14 batters in his last six games in Washington and has been playing in Korea for the past year,” adding, ”He is 2-0 with a 2.60 ERA this season. I don’t think he’ll stay this good, and he’s on a bad team, which will affect his value, but he’s clearly a much improved pitcher from his Washington days.
