The title “Steamed” with the second-best home run drop…He’s also aiming for No. 1 RBI and slugging percentage
NC Peddy’s No. 1 ranking has been outlined in all categories, including “Three Pitcher Awards in 12 years.”
Attention is focusing on whether Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha Eagles) will be able to win three gold medals from the batter’s side in relation to the individual title competition, which attracts as much attention as the fierce ranking battle at the end of the regular season.
Noh Si-hwan, who hit 31 home runs in the season, virtually booked the title of home run king as Choi Jung (SSG Landers, 29 home runs) in the league ended the regular season due to an injury.
In order for Noh Si-hwan to miss the top of the home run list, team senior Chae Eun-sung (23 home runs), who ranks third in the league’s home run, must drive three per game in the remaining three games, which is arithmetically impossible.
Noh Si-hwan, who also ranks first in the league with 99 RBIs, is one step ahead of competitors such as Socrates Brito (KIA Tigers, 95 RBIs) and Austin Dean (LG Twins, 94 RBIs). With Hanwha three games left and KIA and LG two games each, Noh Si-hwan is also likely to take the top spot.
The last hurdle for Noh to win three gold medals is his slugging percentage.
Currently, Noh Si-hwan and Choi Jung’s slugging percentage is 0.5478, the same as the fourth decimal place.The slugging percentage of the two players, which is not enough even with “Halfunimo,” must go to “Sa” (絲), the fifth decimal place, to determine the superiority and inferiority.
Noh Si-hwan is 0.54781, and Choi Jeong is 0.54777 degrees ahead of Noh Si-hwan by 0.0004. If Noh Si-hwan does not play in the remaining three games, he can win the long-distance king with a “four-out difference,” and if he continues to play, he must steadily produce long balls and maintain the current long-distance rate.
Although not as much as the slugging percentage, there is also fierce competition for the batting champion. Son Ah-seop (NC Dinos) has a batting average of 0.342 and Koo Ja-wook (Samsung Lions) has a gap of two wins.
Hong Chang-ki (LG), who competed for the best batting champion together, was slightly behind at 0.333.Son Ah-seop, who is currently tied for first place with Kim Hye-sung (Kium Heroes) with 186 hits, will confirm the title of most hits if he adds one hit in the remaining three games.
Hong Chang-ki is likely to finish the season first in two categories: scoring (109) and on-base percentage (0.445). Jung Soo-bin (Doosan Bears) is expected to continue the competition until the end of the season with 38 stolen bases and Shin Min-jae (LG) 37. The winner has already been decided on the pitcher’s side.
Eric Peddy (NC) is leading the three categories of wins (20 wins), ERA (2.06) and strikeouts (204), so he is likely to win three pitchers in 12 years since Yoon Seok-min (KIA) in 2011.William Cuevas (kt wiz) confirmed the title with 12 wins and no losses and a 100% winning rate.
Seo Jin-yong (SSG) also confirmed his first career title with 41 saves, far ahead of Kim Jae-yoon (kt, 32 saves), who has already finished the regular season. In the hold category, Park Young-hyun (kt) ranks first in the league with 32 holds, followed by Noh Kyung-eun (SSG) with 29 holds. 스포츠토토
If Noh Kyung-eun wins holds in all three remaining games of his team, the first joint hold king in 20 years will be born since Lee Sang-yeol (Hyundai Unicorns) and Cha Myung-joo (Doosan, 16 holds each) in 2003.
