‘Two Run Four’ Kim Tae-yeon on 43rd minute rain interruption: “I tried not to think about it, but I must have looked bad”

Hanwha Eagles’ Kim Tae-yeon made his first start in a long time and had the best birthday ever in the offense.

Hanwha won its second straight game on Tuesday with a 7-0 victory over LG in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon. Kim Tae-yeon, who started at second base and batting second on the day, went 2-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI to lead the team to victory.

Kim, who was 6-for-12 with six RBIs against LG starter Lee Min-ho prior to the game, also had a multi-hit game against Lee, including a home run. In her second at-bat, with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the second inning, Kim took a 143 km/h fastball from Lee Min-ho for a two-run home run over the left field fence, and added a single to left in her next at-bat.

“I was very grateful to the fans who sang happy birthday to me in my first at-bat, and I think it made me more focused and determined to repay them with a good performance,” said Kim Tae-yeon, who was celebrating her birthday on June 10. “Against Lee Min-ho, my timing was good before, so I think it was good to go in thinking that I should hit what I can hit with confidence today as well,” she said.

There was also a happy ending, as the game was suspended for 43 minutes due to sudden rain after Kim’s home run. If the rain had continued to fall heavily, Hanwha’s scores, including Kim’s home run, would have been negated. During the stoppage, the on-field cameras showed Kim Tae-yeon, who had a nice smile on her face. Luckily, a rain delay allowed play to resume and the game ended with Hanwha’s victory 메이저놀이터.

When asked how she felt during the interruption, Kim said, “There was a lot of talk. It was raining, it wasn’t raining, it was suddenly 12 millimeters, and the coaches said it was just showers. I thought I was going to play anyway and tried not to think about it as much as possible, but I think I showed a lot of (worry),” he laughed. “I just wanted to get it over with because the team was winning, and it didn’t rain until the end, so it was good to get the win,” he added.

Kim, who was demoted to the second team on June 3 and returned to the first team on June 1, more than a month later, is batting .375 in six games. “I made a lot of adjustments,” Kim said. My confidence was low, so the coaches told me to take a lot of practice and find my confidence, and I think I practiced as much as I could while discussing with Coach Park Yoon what was wrong with my batting form.”

“I think going out there is the coach believing in me and giving me a chance, so I’m just trying to do my best to live up to that,” he said, adding that he plays in a variety of positions and batting orders.

Philippines’ future 218cm center continues his NBA quest… Attending three-team camp

Soto dreams of making it to the NBA

Philippine national team center Kai Soto spoke to Play It Right TV on Tuesday about his hopes of making the NBA and playing in the World Cup.

Soto is a highly sought-after prospect in Asian basketball beyond the Philippines. A 6-foot-10 big man, which is rare in Asia, Soto was born in 2002 and still has a lot of room to grow.

Despite his physical attributes, the NBA door didn’t open easily for Soto.

Soto chose the G League’s Ignite over the NCAA, but the COVID-19 pandemic prevented him from playing a single game for the Ignite, and he joined Adelaide in the Australian League, where he averaged 7.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in the 2021-2022 season.

After one season in Australia, Soto entered the NBA Draft, but was unfortunately not selected by any teams. Soto continued to play in Australia, and in February of this year, he signed with the Hiroshima Dragonflies of the B.League to play in Japan.

After his rookie season with Hiroshima, Soto recently agreed to a contract extension with the club. However, his commitment to the NBA remains strong. “Kai Soto has an option to sign with an NBA team, so if he signs with an NBA team this summer, there is a possibility that his contract with us will be terminated,” said Hiroshima’s general manager.

After signing, Soto thanked the club, saying, “I am grateful to the club for giving me this opportunity and I am happy to have the chance to play in Japan next season,” and added, “The NBA is my biggest dream and I will continue to work hard in the Summer League in the United States this summer.”

Soto is currently busy attending mini-camps with several teams in hopes of making a roster for the Summer League in July. He has already made appearances at minicamps in Utah and Dallas, and will soon be attending a minicamp in New York.

Soto’s agent said, “Most players attend one or two mini-camps, but Soto is lucky enough to attend three. He has the opportunity to showcase himself to NBA teams and coaches, earn a spot on a Summer League roster, and compete with other hungry players.”

Soto is also on the Philippine National Team roster. However, his participation in the Summer League means that he will not be able to join the Philippines’ training camp in Lithuania, where they will play a series of friendly games against European teams. However, Soto emphasized that it won’t affect his preparation for the World Cup, which kicks off in late August.

“Summer League is in mid-July and the World Cup is in late August. I think we have plenty of time. Right now we’re focusing on the mini-camp schedule. I’m going to focus everything on Summer League and try to make it to the NBA. And after Summer League, I’m going to focus a lot on the World Cup,” he said.

“The World Cup is going to be the biggest opportunity and the highest level of competition I’ve ever played in my career. I’ll be playing against the best of the best in the world at the World Cup. I get nervous every time I think about it, and I’m really looking forward to it,” he said of the prospect of playing in the World Cup.

Can Soto fulfill his dream of playing in the NBA? If he performs well in the Summer League, NBA teams will be much more interested in him. 안전놀이터

‘8 innings, 112 pitches, no runs’ Hanwha’s monster outing, Sanchez’s day off, clinches 6-game sweep…LG Electronics to win series

Hanwha defeated LG behind an eight-inning, 112-pitch no-hitter by foreign pitcher Ricardo Sanchez. Hanwha continued its 100 percent winning formula with a six-game sweep on Sanchez’s day.

Hanwha completed a 7-0 sweep of LG in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Tuesday.

Starting pitcher Sanchez threw 112 pitches over eight innings to earn his third win of the season, extending his unbeaten streak to six starts. Kim Tae-yeon also celebrated her birthday, going 2-for-3 with a home run and a walk.

Tenth-ranked Hanwha, which secured the winning series with its second straight victory over LG following a 6-5 walk-off win the previous day (Sept. 9), improved to 21-32-3. Second-place LG, which has lost three straight, is 33-23-2.

Sanchez completely shut down the LG bats. He pitched eight innings of two-hit ball with eight strikeouts and two walks to earn his third win of the season and lower his ERA from 1.85 to 1.39. After retiring left-handers Moon Bo-kyung and Shin Min-jae on consecutive pitches to end the second and third innings, Sanchez struck out three straight batters in the fourth and fifth innings. He had thrown 51 pitches by the fifth inning.

In the sixth, shortstop Lee Do-yoon reached on a throwing error, but Sanchez got Moon Sung-joo to fly out to center field to end the inning. Following a triple play in the seventh, he struck out Lee Jae-won and Kim Min-sung, who came to bat with runners on first and second in the eighth to keep the home fans on their feet, especially his 112th pitch of the game against the last batter, Kim Min-sung, which was measured at 151 kilometers.

The Hanwha bats supported Sanchez in the first inning. Against LG starter Lee Min-ho, Lee Jin-young drew a walk, Noh Si-hwan singled to left and Chae Eun-sung singled to left to open the scoring.

In the second inning, Moon Hyun-bin singled to right and Lee Jin-young doubled to left-center, followed by Kim Tae-yeon’s two-run homer to left. Lee pulled a 143-kilometer fastball from Min-ho over the left field fence. The distance was 120 meters, his second home run of the season 먹튀검증.

A sudden downpour halted the LG offense for 43 minutes in the third inning, but Hanwha’s momentum continued in the fourth. Moon Hyun-bin doubled to right and Lee Do-yoon followed with a sacrifice bunt to load the bases with one out. Kim Tae-yeon, celebrating her birthday, went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBIs and a walk, while Noh Si-hwan and Moon Hyun-bin each had two multi-hit games and Lee Jin-young, batting leadoff, went 1-for-2 with two RBIs and a walk.

For LG, starter Lee Min-ho suffered his second loss of the season after giving up five runs on seven hits (one home run) in five innings with four walks and three strikeouts. Oh Ji-hwan paced the offense with a two-hit multi-hit performance, but was unable to prevent the loss.

“He’s only four years older than Joris, are you really going to sign him?” English media slams Tottenham for targeting ‘WC star + Europa League winner’ GK

Tottenham are on the hunt for a new goalkeeper. They’ve reportedly made an offer, but the only stumbling block is his age.

According to British outlet The Boot Room on Tuesday, Tottenham have made a bid for Moroccan international and ‘World Cup star’ goalkeeper Yacine Bono (32, Sevilla), with a modest transfer fee and the addition of Brian Hill, who has been on loan at Sevilla this season.

‘The Boot Room’ reports that “Sevilla have rejected Tottenham’s offer. They want a transfer fee of between £26 million and £30 million,” explained The Boot Room. It was not disclosed how much Spurs were asking for Hill.

For Tottenham, signing a goalkeeper is not an option.

Their current number one, 36-year-old Hugo Lloris, is simply not up to the task. His form has been on the decline since the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Russia, which concluded last December.

Yoris is under contract with Tottenham until 2024. The Spurs need to find his replacement as soon as possible. Time is running out.

Spurs tried to sign Bono last winter, but it didn’t work out. They are targeting him again. 메이저놀이터

The goalkeeper is under contract with Sevilla until 2025.

The former Atletico Madrid player had a rocky start to his professional career in 2014. He joined Sevilla on loan from Girona until 2019, when he became a permanent fixture. Last season, he won the Samora award, which is given to the best goalkeeper in La Liga.

He was also a member of Sevilla’s Europa League-winning squad this season, after his stunning saves at last year’s World Cup in Qatar helped Morocco reach the last four.

However, ‘The Boot Room’ raised questions. The publication said: “Spurs need to find a goalkeeper who fits into their long-term plans. Bono’s age of 32 could be a stumbling block. He’s only four years older than Yoris,” the publication pointed out.

“If Tottenham want a goalkeeper who will be in the team’s net for the next 10 years, they should sign a goalkeeper in his mid-20s.”

Kim Eun Joong-ho is the unspoken hero of Park Ji-sung’s ‘66.7 km + 270 sprints’

It’s not just a physical resemblance. Kim Eun Joong Ho midfielder Kang Sang-yoon (19, North Korea) helped South Korea reach the semifinals of the U-20 World Cup by “summoning” his teammate, technical director Park Ji-sung (41).

Kang played a vital role for Korea at the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina, appearing in all six matches from the group stage to the semifinals.

He played full-time in all but five of those games, including the third round match against The Gambia, after the team qualified for the round of 16.

So far, he has played 524 minutes, the second most in the squad after striker Lee Young-joon (Gimcheon) with 570 minutes and defender Kim Ji-soo (Seongnam) with 524 minutes.

Most runs. The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) lists Kang as having run 66.66 kilometers, the most in South Korea. 안전놀이터

He also had the most sprints (270). With his frequent sprints, he averaged nearly 11 kilometers per game without getting injured. The heat map shows how much ground he covered, from defensive to offensive areas. It’s a performance reminiscent of Park Ji-Sung of “Two Hearts” fame.

Kang Sang-yoon, who is more of an attacking midfielder, played the role of an “unsung hero” in the tournament as a defensive midfielder due to coach Kim Eun-joong’s instructions to “speak up.

With Kang Sang-yoon covering a lot of ground in the midfield, captain Lee Seung-won (Gangwon) was able to be more aggressive and rack up two goals, four assists, and a lot of offensive points.

In addition to his goals and assists, Lee also holds records for most passes (221) and most crosses (22) on the team.

In a tournament that featured “dancing dribbler” Bae Joon-ho (Daejeon), “goal-scoring defender” Choi Seok-hyun (Dankook University), Premier League offeree Kim Ji Young-joon, Lee Seung-won’s goalkeeper Kim Jun-hong (Gimcheon), and Kang Sang-yoon, defenders Choi Ye-hoon (Busan) and Park Chang-woo (Jeonbuk), and midfielder Park Hyun-bin (Incheon) provided a solid backbone.

After finishing second in the group stage, Kim Eun-jung-ho advanced to the semifinals for the second straight tournament, beating Ecuador and Nigeria in the round of 16 and quarterfinals, respectively.

After conceding an early goal in the semifinal against Italy in La Plata on Sept. 9, Lee Seung-won’s penalty equalizer brought the game back to 1-1, but the South Koreans fell short in the final after conceding a free-kick goal by Thurro in the dying minutes.

Kang will look to put in a quiet but solid performance in the third-place match against Israel at 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 12 to help secure third place.

Doosan to re-sign Brandon, Lee “the best option among available players”

Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop expressed his excitement about the impending arrival of new foreign pitcher Brandon Waddell.

Doosan placed injury-plagued foreign pitcher Dylan Pyle on waivers on Aug. 8. Dillon, who was sidelined with an elbow injury last month, suffered a recurrence of pain during his rehabilitation, making his return uncertain, and Doosan could not wait any longer.

Doosan made a list of alternatives early on and decided to bring back Brandon, who played for Doosan last year. Last year, Brandon played in a Doosan uniform as a replacement for Ariel Miranda and posted a solid record of 5-3 with a 3.60 ERA in 11 games.

After failing to re-sign with Doosan after the season, Brandon went on to play in the Taiwan Professional Baseball League for the Rakuten Monkeys. This season, he went 5-4 with a 2.85 ERA and was close to returning to Doosan.

“I heard that the agreement was finalized, and I think I’ll be able to pitch at the end of this month at the latest. I think I made the best choice among the players available. The club moved quickly,” he said of Waddell’s signing.

“When I saw him last year, I wasn’t impressed, but when I saw him again, I realized that he has a fastball of 150 kilometers and a changeup that he can use freely. He has experience in the KBO and has been in the starting rotation in Taiwan, so I don’t think he will have any problems adjusting.”

Doosan has been able to hold its own in the middle of the pack despite losing three starters – Dillon, Kwak Bin and Choi Won-jun – to injury and poor performance. As of September 9, Doosan’s starting pitching staff has a 3.60 ERA, which ranks fourth in the league.

Lee said, “It’s all thanks to the pitching coach. We were able to endure the sluggishness and injuries of the starting pitchers because we showed good teamwork with the training part.” Lee credits the coaching staff. 메이저놀이터

Third year pro, third tae kwon do mark… “I’m gonna throw my arm out”.

Lee Yi-ri, 21, a left-handed hard-throwing pitcher for the Kia Tigers of the Korean Baseball Organization, has already earned his third Korean flag in his third year of professional baseball.

Named to the final roster for the Hangzhou 2023 Asian Games baseball team announced on Monday, Lee said he’s ready to “go out there and throw my arm off” against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul.

Lee has started 11 games this season, going 5-3 with a 2.55 ERA.

While his velocity has been a bit shaky, with 41 walks in 49 1/3 innings, his command is strong, with a fastball that tops out at 153 mph and 68 strikeouts.

After competing in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics in his first year as a professional and the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in March this year, he is now a regular on the Korean national team.

Recognized as one of the best baseball players in Korea, he says, “It feels great to be selected, but I also feel a sense of responsibility to do well. It’s a new feeling to be selected for the national team for all three times, but I’m determined to go out there and do well.”

After starting the season early with a WBC appearance, Lee will now travel to the Asian Games in October.

Managing his fitness has become a determining factor in his performance this year.

“I’m going to work out a lot and eat good food as I’ve always done,” Lee said.

Along with Lee, KIA also named left-handed bullpen pitcher Choi Ji-min, 20, to the national team.

Choi has emerged as a key part of the KIA bullpen this year, going 2-2 with a 1.63 ERA in 23 games with one save and three holds.

“It’s something I never imagined (before the season started),” Choi said. I was expecting (to start) a little bit because I was in important situations, but it’s a different feeling now that I’ve been selected,” Choi said. “There’s still a lot of season left, so I’m not going to get excited, but I’m going to do my part in any situation.”

Lee Yi-ri, who has a junior in the national team, said, “Jimin’s performance is very good. I hope he will have good results at the Asian Games.”

In addition to the two, KIA also named outfielder Choi Won-jun (26) to the national team 안전놀이터.

Currently, Choi is a member of the Korean Armed Forces Athletic Corps (Commerce), but he is set to join the team next Tuesday after being discharged from the army, making him a de facto KIA player.

“Choi Won-jun didn’t perform well in the Futures (second team) League this year due to injuries, so I wouldn’t have thought of him (being selected) myself,” said KIA head coach Kim Jong-guk.

“It’s too early to think about it now, we’ll think about it in August,” he said, referring to the gap in the squad when they joined the national team.

‘Non-durable grass’ preserved by Gangwon FC…Chuncheon Songam Sports Town revitalized

The grass at Gangwon FC’s home stadium, Chuncheon Songam Sports Town, which was recently criticized for its “patchy grass,” has been revitalized. After more than 20 days of extensive maintenance work, it has regained its lush green color.

Gangwon was criticized and criticized for a while last month for its ‘patchy grass’. In fact, the turf at Chuncheon Songam Sports Town was so badly damaged that it was difficult to play a normal game in the top league of professional soccer. In particular, the turf was deeply dug and layered in many places. The center of the field was completely cracked, as if a tractor had passed by.

Naturally, this had a detrimental effect on playing conditions. Irregular bounds were common, and it wasn’t uncommon for passes to go out of play. Players were tripping and having trouble controlling the ball. Players weren’t able to showcase their unique style of play because they were afraid of getting injured.

After discussions with Chuncheon City Corporation, the organization that maintains the lawn, Kangwon decided to undertake a major renovation. The team started by replacing all the badly damaged grass. Fortunately, they were able to buy time as it was their second consecutive away game after the Pohang Steelers game on the 21st of last month, and after about 20 days of repair work, the field came back to life.

A Gangwon official said, “We started the grass repair work on the 22nd according to the plan we reported to the federation. “The federation’s competition supervisor visited and inspected it, and gave us the green light to play the home game,” he explained.

Once the ground conditions improved, the game went smoothly. In the Hana One Q K League 2023 Round 17 match between Gangwon FC and Daejeon Hana Citizen at Chuncheon Songam Sports Town on July 7, both teams played their signature fast counterattacking soccer and battled fiercely.

먹튀검증 However, Gangwon still hasn’t found an answer to the severe damage to the turf. “We haven’t found a definite cause for the problem before,” said a Gangwon official, “and the Chuncheon City Corporation is still trying to find the cause.” Chuncheon City Corporation has previously stated that they have made every effort to find the cause of the problem, including commissioning experts, but have yet to find the exact cause.

KT Aming delays match by purchasing ‘Dagger of Static’ during set 2

Set 2 ‘Dagger of Static’ purchase causes a fuzz.

Game 2 of Day 1 of Week 3 of the 2023 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Summer Split is underway at Roll Park in Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea on September 9. A fuzz occurred in the second set, delaying the game for about 40 minutes.

The reason for the second-set fuzz was that Kim “Aiming” Haram purchased a banned item, Static’s Dagger, at around 6:08 p.m., 11 minutes and 47 seconds into the match. At 6:50 p.m., about 40 minutes later, it was decided to accelerate the match after the sale of the Static Dagger item.

KT Rolster won the first set in a landslide with a kill score of 20-3, and in the second set, Genji has a slight gold advantage with a kill score of 2-1.

Meanwhile, KT head coach Kang Dong-hoon went to the press room after the game to inform the players of the unfairness of the double discipline, which is an additional punishment in addition to selling items.

메이저놀이터 The LCK then released an official statement after the end of the second set. It said that it had communicated the ban on the use of Static’s dagger, the item in question, on May 30, just before LCK Summer, and on May 2. They also said that it was the referee’s discretion to sell the item and resume the match after Aiming purchased the item. It also said that Aiming’s purchase of the banned item will be punished based on the global penalty index, and although it cannot be considered intentional abuse by the player, it falls under the category of “bug abuse,” and the specific item application and level will be announced later.

New manager uses ‘4-2-3-1’…Lo Celso, ignored by Conte, is set to return on loan

Giovani Lo Celso is expected to return to Tottenham Hotspur first.

Spurs Web, a Tottenham fan community, reported on September 9 (KST), “Recently, Matt Law, a reporter for the UK’s Telegraph, revealed that Lo Celso does not want to return to Tottenham. We shared the news, but a source close to the player has since said, ‘There is no problem with Lo Celso returning. He will be happy to come back,” the report said.

Lo Celso joined Tottenham on loan from Real Betis in the summer of 2019. He completed the move six months later and was touted as a player who would bring creativity to the Spurs midfield. Tottenham spent a total of €48 million to acquire Lo Celso. However, his place in the side was limited after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked.

He made just 18 English Premier League (EPL) appearances (11 starts, 7 substitutions) under Jose Mourinho in the 2020-21 season. The situation didn’t change under Nuno Espirito Santo and then Antonio Conte.

Lo Celso then went on loan to Villarreal during the 2021-22 season. He had a positive second half of the season, making 16 Spanish La Liga appearances (11 starts, 5 substitutions) and six UEFA Champions League (UCL) matches. He returned after a successful loan spell, but still had no place at Tottenham.

Notably, he was left out of the squad for Conte’s pre-season tour of South Korea. As a result, Lo Celso was sent out on loan to Villarreal once again. Until the end of the season. Lo Celso played 22 La Liga games (14 starts, 8 substitutions), scoring two goals and providing three assists. He was out for about 50 days during the season.

Now it’s time to start thinking about his future. First of all, Tottenham have a new manager. Conte, who played two central midfielders in favor of a three-man defense, is gone, replaced by Enze Postecoglou, who prefers a four-man defense. In Postecoglou’s 4-2-3-1 formation, Lo Celso will be given plenty of opportunities.
