‘PS ERA 15.00’ Pedi mates to showcase half-hearted effort in Game 3…no re-signing if he struggles again!
Looking to get it right in his third start of the postseason, NC Dinos foreign pitcher Tanner Tully will start Game 3 of the playoffs against the KT Wiz on April 2 at Changwon NC Park.
Tanner, who joined the NC family as a replacement for Taylor Widener, took the mound 11 times in the regular season, posting a 5-2 record with a 2.92 ERA. 온라인카지노 He was solid as a starter, earning eight quality starts. It was expected that he would showcase the majesty of an extraordinary starter at the Fall Festival, but he was more disappointed than satisfied.
Tanner, who started the wild-card deciding game against Doosan at Changwon NC Park on March 19, gave up five runs on seven hits (one home run) and three walks in four innings. Tanner was also shaken up in Game 3 of the semifinals against SSG on May 25, allowing five runs on five hits (one homer) in two innings with three walks and two strikeouts. The right-hander got off to a good start, scoring a run in the first inning, but gave up five runs in the second, including a grand slam to Choi Jung. Tanner’s postseason ERA has reached a whopping 15.00.
When asked about Tanner’s struggles, Kang said, “He’s giving up a high percentage of hard hits to changeups. I could see that he was panicking because his command was a little off. I think he will overcome it if he finds his form.” “KT is a team with a very strong starting lineup. We will have to rethink how we will use our domestic starters in addition to the two foreign pitchers.”
NC demonstrated the power of its starting pitching in Games 1 and 2 of the playoffs. In Game 1, 20-win ace Eric Peddie pitched six innings of three-hit ball (one home run) with 12 strikeouts and one walk. NC defeated KT 9-5 behind Pedi’s performance.
Shin Min-hyuk, who started the first game of the semifinals against SSG on May 22 and pitched 5⅔ scoreless innings (4 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts), shut down the KT bats in the second game of the playoffs with 6⅓ scoreless innings (1 hit, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts).
One win away from advancing to the Korean Series, NC welcomes KT home. With one game to go in the Korean Series, NC aims to finish the playoffs with three wins in three games.
Tanner, who pitched below expectations in his first two outings, will have to show a different side in Game 3 of the playoffs to secure a spot in the Korean Series. He has some good memories against KT this season. He didn’t get the win on September 13, but he pitched well, allowing two runs on six hits and four walks with eight strikeouts in six innings.
If Tanner continues to struggle, his chances of being re-signed will be even lower.
