Left-handed foreign pitcher Wes Benjamin of the KT Wiz of the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) earned his 10th win of the season with a dominant 토토사이트 performance against the ‘Twins’.
Benjamin started a home game against the LG Twins at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province, on May 25 and pitched eight scoreless innings with nine strikeouts.
Sixth-ranked KT defeated LG 4-1. Leaders LG suffered their fourth straight loss, one win shy of reaching 50 wins for the season due to the nine-hitter jinx.
Benjamin dominated the game, allowing only three hits – to Park Dong-won in the second, Austin Dean in the fourth and Kim Hyun-soo in the seventh. His only walk came with two outs in the eighth inning.
Benjamin has now won four straight games for the LG Electronics League this year. That’s nearly half of his 10 wins against LG this season.
KT, which is 4-4 against LG this year, has only won in games where Benjamin has pitched.
Benjamin has pitched 25⅓ innings in four games against LG this year, posting a stellar 0.71 ERA.
KT scored three runs in the third inning against LG ace Adam Plutko, who was attempting his second win against his former club this season.
With runners on first and second after a hit and a walk, Anthony Alford opened the inning with a single to left-center field.
Park bunted and Plutko’s curveball bounced off the backstop for a one-base hit, scoring Kim Sang-soo from third. After stealing third, Alford scored the team’s third run on Park’s infield grounder.
KT drove in a run in the top of the seventh with an RBI double down the left field line.
LG scored one run in the ninth inning after Benjamin’s double and Austin’s RBI single up the middle, but it wasn’t enough.
