NC, with all three outfielders injured in three days… emergency ahead of ‘week of fate’

NC, which is busy competing for the mid-level rankings, encountered a reef. Three outfielders were injured during the three-game weekend. They are the main players of the team in both offense and defense.

Left fielder Kwon Hee-dong, center fielder Jason Martin, and right fielder Park Geon-woo left the team one after another from the 1st to the 3rd. After Kwon Hee-dong hit a single in the top of the 3rd inning against Samsung on the 1st, he was immediately replaced as a substitute in the defensive inning. He felt pain in his wrist while hitting. Martin also missed the game that day. In the top of the 7th inning, he was hit on the right elbow by Samsung Noh Gun-woo’s 132 km/h slider and was replaced as a pinch runner.

Kwon Hee-dong and Martin did not play well against Samsung on the 2nd and 3rd. Kwon Hee-dong only had one at-bat as a pinch hitter against Samsung on the 2nd. Martin rested in a bucket. NC coach Kang In-kwon said, “Martin’s elbow is so swollen that he cannot swing normally. “It’s difficult for him to pinch hit,” he explained.

In the 3rd match, which started without Kwon Hee-dong and Martin, NC even lost Park Geon-woo. Due to a right hamstring strain, he was replaced as a substitute at the start of the bottom of the second inning. I got into trouble while running the bases in the previous inning.

In this game, which was played without a starting outfielder, NC lost 1-6. Against Samsung starter David Buchanan, he could only score 1 run in 6.2 innings, and was unable to hit even a single hit against Woo Gyu-min and Oh Seung-hwan, who followed him.

The future is the problem. Starting on the 5th, NC will meet Kiwoom and Lotte one by one at Changwon Home. On the 5th to 7th, they will play a 3-game series against Kiwoom, and on the 6th-8th, they will play a 4-game series with Lotte, including a double header. Since they are meeting two bottom ranked teams one after another at home, they are in a position to aim for as many wins as possible. NC lost 4th place to KIA after losing against Samsung on the 4th. NC also performed well with 6 wins and 4 losses in the last 10 games, but KIA’s momentum with 8 consecutive wins was so great. It’s a week where we have to compete to secure 4th place or higher.먹튀검증

Coach Kang In-kwon announced an all-out effort by confirming ace Eric Peddie as the starter against Kiwoom on the 5th. Peddie pitched his worst pitch since entering the KBO, allowing 7 runs in 3 innings against KIA on the 31st of last month, and then stands on the mound again 4 days later. This is Peddie’s first appearance on the mound after a four-day break.

If the three outfield players cannot return to their best condition, the ‘week of fate’ is bound to be difficult. This season, Martin, Park Geon-woo, and Kwon Hee-dong combined for 80 home runs and 167 RBIs. 36.3% of the team’s 80 home runs and 33.5% of the team’s 498 RBIs came from them.
