KT Cuevas, 3rd undefeated winning percentage title confirmed in KBO League history


KT Wiz William Cuevas (pitcher) achieved a meaningful record. In his last appearance in the regular season, he won the title of undefeated winning percentage leader..

Cuevas started as a starter in the home game against the Hanwha Eagles held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 8th. He pitched 98 pitches over 7 innings against the Hanwha lineup, allowing 2 hits, 2 walks, 8 strikeouts, and no runs.

KT’s batting lineup also lightened Cuevas’ shoulders. He rocked the Hanwha mound with 12 hits. KT won 9-2 against Hanwha, and Cuevas became the winning pitcher and recorded his 12th win of the season.

In addition, he recorded 14 consecutive individual wins and 10 consecutive wins against Hanwha. Cuevas came to the KBO League wearing a KT uniform in 2019.

He solidly maintained his spot in the starting lineup at KT. However, he left the team after pitching only two games in 2022 due to injury.

However, Cuevas wore the KT uniform again this season. He returned to the KBO League by signing with KT to replace the underperforming Bo Schulser.

Cuevas made his KBO League return on June 17 against the Samsung Lions. In this game, he performed somewhat poorly, allowing 3 runs in 4.2 innings. Although he did not record a win or loss, Kuevisu accumulated a number of wins afterward and did not record a single loss until today’s game.

Cuevas is the third undefeated winning percentage leader in the KBO League. His first protagonist was Oh Bong-ok (Samsung at the time) in 1992, who won 13 games.

The second is Kim Hyun-wook, the current Lotte Giants pitching coach, who achieved the title of undefeated winning percentage with 10 wins in 2002 during his time at Samsung. The KBO League determines the winning percentage based on 10 wins in the regular season.

With this victory, KT achieved its 600th win (11th in KBO) and maintained second place with 78 wins, 2 draws, and 63 losses. With one regular league game left, KT is four games ahead of third-place Doosan Bears (71 wins, 2 draws, 63 losses).

However, Doosan has 6 games left, so there is a good chance that the ranking will change. Hanwha, ranked 9th, suffered 4 consecutive losses and had 56 wins, 6 draws, and 77 losses.

SSG Landers came from behind to win 10-8 in the away game against NC Dinos held at Changwon NC Park on the same day. SSG avenged the loss they suffered the previous day and finished in 4th place with 72 wins, 3 draws, and 64 losses.토토사이트

On the other hand, NC missed the big game, resulting in 71 wins, 2 draws, and 64 losses, and fell to 5th place. The difference between the two teams is half a game. Additionally, NC maintains a 3-game gap with the 6th place KIA Tigers (68 wins, 2 draws, 67 losses).

SSG led 3-1, but was overtaken by NC 8-3. However, they scored 6 runs in the top of the 8th inning to turn the game around and added 1 run in the top of the 9th to achieve a thrilling victory.
