“William Cuevas continues to pitch well every time he starts.”

KT won 2-1 against the Lotte Giants in the Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League 2023 at Sajik Stadium on Sunday. With the win, KT swept a three-game weekend series and improved to 62 wins, two ties, and 47 losses on the season.

Cuevas was on fire from the start. With his team up 2-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning, he gave up an RBI double to Jeong to cut the lead to 2-1, but then pitched a perfect eighth inning to secure the win. His final line was eight innings, six hits, one walk, six strikeouts and one run. He improved to 8-0 on the season and has now won all 12 games he has pitched this year.

The offense responded to Cuevas’ strong outing. Hwang Jae-gyun hit an RBI single in the third inning, and Shin Bon-ki hit a sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth.

KT manager Lee Kang-cheol said after the game, “Cuevas continues to pitch well every time he starts. His chemistry with catcher Jang Sung-woo was also good. Kim Jae-yoon made a valuable save with a one-run lead.” 메이저놀이터

“In the batting order, Hwang Jae-gyun’s RBI single set the tone and Shin Bon-ki’s sacrifice fly gave us the advantage. We held on for the win. All the players had a hard week. We are grateful to our fans for their support.”
