KT won 4-0 at home against NC in the 2023 KBO League at Katie Weeds Park in Suwon on the 13th. With the two wins, KT completed a three-game weekend sweep (winning at least two of the three games) to stay in third place. 53 wins, 2 draws and 45 losses on the season. Fourth-placed NC, which lost its second straight, fell to 50 wins, one draw and 46 losses, leaving it two games behind KT.

This is the eighth consecutive winning series for KT, dating back to last month’s 11-13 series against Gochuk Kiwoom. KT continued its upward trend with a 19-4 record in 23 games during the period.

On this day, KT sent out their fifth starter, Choi Byeol-seong, while NC sent out their ace, Pedi, who has 15 wins this season. The result was a surprise and a victory for Choi Byeol-seong. Lee shut down the NC bats with six innings of one-hit ball, striking out two and walking none to pick up his sixth win of the season. His command was shaky at times, as he walked seven batters, but he was able to stay focused and not allow an earned run to earn the win. NC starter Pedi suffered his fourth loss of the season (15th) after giving up six hits (one home run) in five innings with six strikeouts and three walks.

SSG defeated Samsung 4-0 on the day behind the back of their ‘ace’ Kim Kwang-hyun. Kim pitched seven scoreless innings, shutting down the Samsung bats for the win. Lotte swept KIA 6-1 at Sajik Stadium in Busan. The seventh-place Lotte closed the gap on sixth-place KIA to 1.5 games. Hanwha bounced back from a five-game losing streak with an 8-3 home victory over Doosan. Top-ranked LG extended its winning streak to five games with a 17-8 thrashing of bottom-placed Kiwoom.
