LG’s Plutko takes the mound for the first time in 20 days. LG announced today that Plutko will start against Samsung Electronics in Daegu.
Plutko, a second-year right-hander in the 온라인카지노 KBO, is 11-2 with a 2.33 ERA in 18 games this season. He took a brief hiatus due to a cold after his last start against KT on May 25 (6 innings, 4 hits, 4 walks, 2 strikeouts, 3 runs). He has faced Samsung three times this season, picking up one win. His ERA is 2.95.
Against them, Samsung will send their “blue-blooded ace” Won Tae-in to the mound. After reaching the 10-win plateau for the second consecutive year, Won has a 4-6 record in 19 appearances this season. His ERA is 3.52.
In his last start, on April 9 against Doosan, he gave up three runs in six innings (five hits (two home runs), two walks and four strikeouts) to earn his 13th quality start of the season, but suffered a no-decision. This is his first start against the LG Electronics this season.
Jamsil Doosan-KT will feature foreign pitchers in the starting lineup. Alcantara will start for Doosan and Cuevas for KT. Alcantara, who has 10 wins under his belt, hasn’t added a win since his last outing against KIA on March 21. In his last start, he pitched seven innings of two-run ball against Samsung on Sept. 9. He has won both of his starts against KT this season. Cuevas remains undefeated this season with five wins in nine starts.
In Sajik, SSG Elias and Lotte Park Se-woong will face off. SSG, who won the best-of-three series against Samsung, has a 7-3 record against Lotte this season. Park Se-woong, who is expected to be the ace of the Hangzhou Asian Games squad, has lost five straight matches since his last win against LG Electronics on March 8. It will be interesting to see if he can break the losing streak in Anbang and get back to five wins.
In Changwon, Hanwha (Peña) and NC (Tanner) will face off. Gwangju Kiwoom-KIA: Kiwoom’s Hurado and KIA‘s Yang Hyun-jong were announced as the starting pitchers for the game.
