Foreign pitcher brought in as ‘the next Kelly’ becomes ‘Ace Plutko’ in two years.바카라
LG Twins pitcher Adam Plutko (32) is now 10-0. In a home game against the Lotte Giants in Jamsil on the 24th, Plutko pitched six innings of four-hit shutout ball, and the offense exploded for a 9-1 victory. Plutko earned the win and reached the 10-win plateau.
In 15 games, he hasn’t lost a game. 10 wins and no losses. Plutko is the sixth KBO pitcher to record 10 wins and no losses, joining Jung Min-tae (Hyundai Unicorns-2003), Park Myung-hwan (Doosan-2005), Song Eun-beom (SK-2009), Hector Noesi (KIA-2017), and Seth Hurankov (Doosan-2018). Plutko is the first LG pitcher to do so.
When LG acquired Plutko last year, they described him as “the next Kelly. In 2021, the left-hander went 10-2 with a 2.18 ERA and won the win-loss title, but his durability was lacking. He only pitched 115⅓ innings in 23 games. With a weak domestic starting rotation, LG needed a foreign pitcher to pitch a lot of innings, so they parted ways with Suarez in favor of Plutko.
It was an excellent decision. In 28 appearances last year, Plutko went 15-5 with a 2.39 ERA. He was tied for second on the team in wins and third in ERA. Kelly and Plutko combined for 31 wins as Kelly went 16-4 with a 2.54 ERA, ranking first in wins and fifth in ERA. It was the most wins by a foreign pitcher for LG.
Plutko has been the de facto ace this season. While Kelly is 6-4 with a 4.26 ERA on the road, Plutko’s 10-game winning streak is tied for the most wins with NC’s Eric Peddy (10-1), and his 1.66 ERA is second only to Kiwoo An (1.61).
In the 15 games that Plutko has started, LG is undefeated with a 14-1 record. He is a true “no-hitter” and a “win fairy.
