Home with LG, Raised at home without 4 consecutive losses and 5 wins in a row… Significant ‘matter effect’ after trade

‘For everyone who has, more will be given and they will have an abundance, and from the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.’스포츠토토

American sociologist Robert Merton called the phenomenon in which people who already have a lot of social and material capital tend to achieve social and economic success the ‘Matthew effect’, from Matthew 25:29 in the New Testament.The pro baseball match between LG, the top team, and Kiwoom, the bottom, held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 13th was a clear example of this effect. LG defeated Kiwoom 17-8 in the home room and won 5 consecutive wins. On the other hand, Kiwoom fell into a four-game losing streak.LG celebrated its 5th consecutive win with 3 home runs by Park Dong-won at the end of the 2nd inning, Austin at the end of the 3rd inning, and Hong Chang-ki at the end of the 8th inning. Hong Chang-ki, who was the only hitter without a home run among the 30% hitters who filled the required number of at-bats before the game that day, marked the end of the day with a home run that was the best of the season.

Hong Chang-ki said, “I am grateful that the fans seem to like it more than me. I wanted to hit a home run, but I tried not to pay attention. It seems that the balls that could have been passed became double hits or hits that hit the fence,” he said.

This season, Hong Chang-ki ranks first in the league in on-base percentage (0.450), first in runs scored (80 points), second in doubles (28), third in batting average (0.330), and third in hits (121).

LG’s captain Oh Ji-hwan was replaced with Jung Joo-hyeon due to pain in the front of his thigh from the beginning of the 3rd inning defense, but thanks to the generous score difference, the vacancy of the starting shortstop was not revealed too much.

The moves of the two teams are clearly different after the trade on the 29th of last month.

LG, which ranks first in both team ERA and team batting average and has plenty of pitching resources, has hitter prospect Lee Joo-hyung nominated for the 2nd round of the 2020 rookie draft and tall (195cm) pitcher Kim Dong-gyu nominated for the 17th pick in the 2nd round of the 2023 rookie draft. Won-tae Choi, a native starting pitcher with an average ERA in the 3-point range, was obtained.

After the trade, LG ran 12 wins and 2 losses, including 7 consecutive wins, the team’s most this season. The ride with second place SSG also increased from 2.5 games on July 30 to 6 games. On the other hand, since the trade that actually raised the ‘white flag’ in the game this season, Kiwoom is walking downhill with 1 win and 13 losses until today, including losing 8 consecutive losses.

Of course, Kiwoom was also a trade that paid off long-term benefits. Immediately after the trade, in the baseball world, there were many eyes concerned about LG’s impatience for giving away hitter Lee Joo-hyung, who was evaluated as ‘sure to explode’ if given a chance. Lee Joo-hyung also hit 2 homers only in August after the trade, and was recording an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.928 in August before the match.

Of the hitters on the lineup that day, Kiwoom had only one 30% hitter, Kim Hye-seong, who filled the required number of at-bats. This was the reason Lee Jung-hoo needed batting resources with long hitting power like Lee Joo-hyung for the next season, when he challenges the Major League Baseball (MLB).

However, Kiwoom had no choice but to stand out from the mound that he did not have that day. Kiwoom, who had not been able to find an alternative starting resource because Ace An Woo-jin was eliminated from the entry for physical fitness, made Kim Dong-gyu, who had only 2 runs in 1/3 innings (1 earned run) as a starting pitcher.

Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki said, “It may be cruel, or it may be a burden as a young player, regarding Kim Dong-gyu’s debut match against his parent team LG. But rather, when those fearful feelings turn into confidence, the energy will increase.” However, newcomer Kim Dong-gyu, who had his first start in his debut at Jamsil Stadium filled with nearly 20,000 spectators on the weekend, came down the mound after allowing 5 runs, including 2 wild throws that resulted in runs in 2 innings.On the other hand, Lim Chan-gyu, who received only 13 goals, was enough to post 9 wins (2 losses) in the season with 5 runs in 5 innings. Kiwoom recorded hits for all starting batters, but the light faded after the extra energy of the game.

At the end of the 3rd inning, Kiwoom was behind 2-5, and tried to continue the chase by raising Yanghyun. However, in the third inning, the LG lineup drove Yang Hyun with five hits in a row, starting with a solo shot by Austin, the fourth batter, and Lee Jae-won, the eighth batter. Yang Hyun took the first out count with an infield fly to hitter Park Hae-min at number 9, but the score had already widened to 2-8.

As the defense time got longer, Kim Hye-seong, who was a regular in the hohobi film, also made a mistake. The first batter Hong Chang-ki missed a ground ball from second base, and the crisis with the first base loaded continued. In the end, LG scored 4 more points with Shin Min-jae’s infield hit, Kim Hyun-soo’s sacrifice fly, and Austin’s timely hit, widening the score to 10 points (12-2) in the third inning.

Lee Jae-won, a promising player LG is working hard to nurture, also played an active part in two consecutive games, including the previous day’s game, with multiple hits. Lee Jae-won, from the first at-bat of the day, made a neat right-middle hit, stole second base with a stolen base, went to third base in the subsequent wild throw of the opposing pitcher, and then stepped on the groove with a double steal while Hong Chang-ki stole second base. He participated and shook opposing pitcher Kim Dong-gyu.

In the second and fifth at-bats that followed, Lee Jae-won, who made a huge hit that fell in front of the left fielder, played an active role with 3 hits, 2 runs and 2 RBIs in 4 at-bats. It was the first 3-hit game in about three months since the game against KT in Jamsil on May 16th. Lee Jae-won said, “In the beginning, his older brothers all hit well and tried to catch up, so it seems that it didn’t work out even better. My older brothers are my older brothers, and I try to go as it is, as it is,” he said.

Lee Jae-won, who had not yet reached his full potential as a right-handed Geopo prospect and was constantly requested to trade from other clubs, laughed at the feeling of seeing Lee Joo-hyung’s performance after the trade, saying, “As everyone knows, it’s subtle.” It seems appropriate to go (to the game). I will continue to prepare as I am now, and I will try to seize the opportunity when it comes.”

In the Sajik home game, Lotte won the KIA 6-1 with starter Barnes giving up 1 run in 7 innings (without an ERA) and ‘Salvation Duo’ Seung-Min Koo and Won-Joong Kim pitching scoreless.

KIA Sanchez, who had a starter match against Barnes that day, failed to receive even a single point even after 5 innings and 1 run, and became a losing pitcher.

On the other hand, Hanwha Sanchez won 6 wins of the season with 3 runs in 6 innings against Doosan at home.

Doosan couldn’t turn the game around and lost 3-8 after starter Choi Won-joon was knocked out early as he allowed 4 runs in 1 1/3 innings. Yang Seok-hwan fired the 17th gun of the season, but the defeat faded.

Leading the season with most wins (15 wins) and leading ERA (1.96) NC Peddy suffered 4 losses in the season with 3 runs (1 ERA) in 5 innings against Suwon KT. KT led the team to a 4-0 victory with 6 innings of scoreless pitching by the starting pitcher. 3rd place KT widened the game gap with 4th place NC to 2 games with the victory that day.

In literature, home team SSG won two consecutive victories by beating Samsung 4-0 with starting pitcher Kim Gwang-hyeon’s 7 scoreless innings. Samsung Widener, who was the first starter after being released from NC last month and changed his uniform to Samsung, became a losing pitcher with 4 runs in 6 2/3 innings.


Illegal Toto, match-fixing ‘accomplice’. If the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Professional Federation Football Association is silent 

Earlier this month,스포츠토토 Gwangju terminated the contract with defender A. This is because he himself admitted to doing private Toto three years ago. Gwangju heard this as a tip, and A also admitted it. Gwangju said, “I admitted that in 2020, I indirectly conducted private Toto through a third party.” It was when A was in Jeju three years ago. Gwangju explained, “I said that I had never played Toto after the transfer to Gwangju, but as it was already confirmed that I had committed a crime, I decided to terminate the contract immediately.”

Private sports betting is, of course, illegal. Even ‘legal’ Sports Toto issued by the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation is subject to criminal punishment if players, coaches, and referees of the issued sport purchase it.

What kind of gamble did A play? According to his remarks, it is “private Toto”. Gwangju said, “There was no need to ask more about what kind of gambling they participated in specifically.” So A’s contract with Gwangju was terminated. He lost his job as a professional player. But is this really enough?

What sport and which league did A bet on? Is there any possibility that he played soccer Toto? If he played soccer toto, would he only play overseas. Wouldn’t he have played the K-League? If A bets on the K League as well, the problem becomes enormous. It is because he cannot ignore the probability that he has been involved in match fixing. We already know how devastating the effects of match-fixing are.

Regarding the way A participated in private Toto, he said that it was an indirect bet through a third party. Who is the third party, and if through the third party, are there any other club players who participated in illegal Toto like A? Are illegal online sites the only places where illegal Toto was conducted? Is there really no possibility that it happened in an offline gambling house?

The reporter received shocking information from several sources. It was the content that K-League players were gambling illegally for a large amount like A at Hold’em Pub. There was also a reporter who told us the location of the Hold’em Pub and the name of the Hold’em Pub. I also heard the real names of active professional players who were known among players to be gambling illegally there. These are players in their mid-to-late 20s belonging to several clubs. The person who reported A’s participation in private Toto to Gwangju is also known to be a former player who previously played in Gwangju and K3. If all of this is true, wouldn’t it be difficult to rule out the possibility that multiple K-leagues made illegal bets on soccer online or offline, especially for the Korean K-League, through agents who were former soccer players.

A thorough internal investigation of the soccer world and a strong investigation by the judicial authorities are needed. The Professional Football Federation and the Korea Football Association should not let go, saying, “There is no way to do anything because the contract has been terminated.” If the government only talks about regulations but does not implement strong measures, it is difficult to avoid criticism for cutting its tail. It can be seen as an attitude of trying to cover up match-fixing, far from wanting it outright.

Federations and associations should first investigate players whose names are mentioned as being involved in illegal Toto like A. They are active K-leagues, so federations, associations, and clubs can investigate. Federations and associations must report this fact to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism right away. The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism needs to request a thorough and powerful investigation from the judicial authorities right now. If federations, associations, clubs, and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism remain silent, they are all accomplices in concealing and overlooking the highly probable possibility of match fixing.


31 home runs, 1st place in RBI overtaking Okamoto, 20 home runs, Sniper Maki’s scoring zone batting average 0.354, 6 consecutive games RBI – 11 RBIs

Kazuma Okamoto (27),스포츠토토 the fourth hitter of the Yomiuri Giants, hit 9 home runs in 6 games from last week to early this week. It is a record that even the world’s home run king Oh Sadaharu (Wang Jeong-chi, current Softbank Hawks president) could not achieve. On the 6th, in the match against the Hiroshima Carp, he hit his 28th, 29th, and 30th home runs of the season. He passed 30 home runs for the sixth straight year. As of the 12th, he has 31 home runs, which is the first in the Central League.

Munetaka Murakami (23), the “monster” of the Yakult Swallows, started the pursuit with a home run in three consecutive games, but only 22. Okamoto leads comfortably by nine points.

Okamoto won the home run and RBI title for two consecutive years from 2020 to 2021. He had 31 home runs -97 RBI in 2020 and 39 home runs -113 RBI in 2021. Last season, he was overwhelmed by the momentum of Murakami, the three-time hitter, but this year is a different atmosphere. He is aiming for a comeback with two home runs and RBIs for the first time in two years.

However, Okamoto, who is the overwhelming No. 1 in home runs, is not No. 1 in RBI. If you are the leader in home runs with about 10 points ahead of the 2nd and 3rd places, you should definitely be the 1st in RBI, but there is a ‘dark horse’. This is Shugo Maki (25), the fourth hitter of the Yokohama Baystars.

Maki played as 4th and 2nd baseman against Yomiuri held at Tokyo Dome on the 12th. In the first two at-bats, Yomiuri left-hander starting pitcher Iori Yamasaki was overwhelmed. He struck out two consecutive at-bats as the leadoff batter in the second and fourth innings.

The third at-bat in the 7th inning was different. In a situation where there was no one runner, I went in aiming for the first pitch. He pulled a 138km/h forkball that was falling into the strike zone to his side and flew it to the left side of the Tokyo Dome. It was the 20th home run of the season, which was 0-3. Yokohama, which only had 3 hits, lost 1-5. Thanks to Maki’s home run, he escaped the loss.

Maki scored his 73rd RBI of the season with this home run. He overtook Okamoto, who was recording 72, and became the top scorer in RBI. In the match against Yomiuri the previous day (11th), he also attacked the first ball and connected it with a 2-run home run, the 19th of the season.

Maki led the RBI before Okamoto hit a home run. He has 11 fewer home runs than Okamoto, but has 1 more RBI. He was strong in scoring chances enough to offset the small number of home runs.

Maki went 34-for-96 with runners in scoring position this season, going .354. More than 6 puns higher than his season’s batting average of 2.9 2. On the other hand, Okamoto went 21 hits in 93 at-bats and went 2/26.

He consistently created scoring opportunities. Since the match against the Hanshin Tigers on August 6, he has been recording RBIs in six consecutive games. In this span, he picked up 11 RBIs.

Maki, a right-winger, graduated from Chuo University and debuted in 2021 after entering the draft as the second pick. 22 in 2021

Home runs, hit 24 home runs in 2022. He became the 6th player in Japanese professional baseball history to exceed 20 homers for 3 consecutive years since his debut season. He deserves to hit 30 home runs this year.

Maki played an active part as the main second baseman of the WBC (World Baseball Classic) Japan national team. Tetsito Yamada (31), a veteran Yakult second baseman with extensive experience in international competitions, naturally became the starting pitcher as he showed extreme sluggish batting.


I changed everything except LG… Professional baseball is an all-time foreign war

This season, professional baseball foreign players are replaced in a row. The competition for rankings, which had been hotly unfolding due to the number of victories each club had successively, intensified.스포츠토토

Nine teams, excluding the LG Twins, have used foreign player replacement cards more than once this season. A total of 13 foreigners left the team.

This is the highest record since 2014 when it was allowed to have up to three foreign players. Last year, 12 were replaced during the season, with eight teams changing at least one foreign player.

The bad news of the injury that came early brought a quick decision.

The Hanwha Eagles, the first out of 10 clubs this season to replace foreign players, fired pitcher Birch Smith, who left due to shoulder pain on April 19th. Smith never stood on the mound in the KBO League again after distributing only 60 pitches in 2⅔innings in the season opener against the Kiwoom Heroes.

SSG Landers broke up with Annie Romero, who couldn’t even make her KBO league debut, on May 4. Romero left the team after undergoing rehabilitation due to shoulder pain that occurred during spring camp.

The ranking battle, which was fiercer than usual, ignited the rush to replace foreign players. This is because it is worth investing in if you can improve your strength by changing foreign players in a situation where the gap with the competing team is not large.

Lotte Giants, aiming for fall baseball for the first time in six years since 2017, sent out hitter Jack Rex and pitcher Dan Straley last month and recruited new faces Nico Goodrum and Aaron Wilkerson to reorganize the lineup.

The KIA Tigers also reconstructed the one-two punch by releasing Shawn Anderson and Adonis Medina at the end of the first half and bringing in Thomas Panoni and Mario Sanchez.

All of these teams are in the midst of a mid-level battle.

There are also 4 teams that have changed all 2 foreign players, which is the limit for replacing foreign players. Lotte, KIA, Hanwha and Kiwoom Heroes also drastically changed foreign players.

However, the replacement of foreign players during the season cannot avoid concerns about adaptation. Considering this, some teams bring in players with experience in the KBO league as a replacement for the released foreigner.

KT Wiz sent Vosulser and brought in William Cuevas, who led the team’s first combined championship in 2021, as a replacement. The Doosan Bears, which released Dylan Pyle, who was groaning due to injuries and sluggishness, also welcomed Brandon Waddell as a new companion, who was with them last year.

The Samsung Lions, who are at the bottom, decided to leave the mound for the rest of the season to Taylor Widener, who announced a waiver from the NC Dinos earlier this month, in place of the injured Albert Suarez.

Meanwhile, LG, which is leading the way this season, continues to accompany foreign players Casey Kelly, Adam Plutko, and Austin Dean, who were recruited before the season.


“Right now, we don’t have to look down.” The leader of LG, who is running high at No.

“Now we are in a situation where there is no need to look down. Let’s just focus on our game and keep the good atmosphere going.”

Olympic gold medal, Asian Games gold medal, Premier 12 championship, World Baseball Classic runner-up, and Korean Series championship, so many things have been achieved. However, he has yet to reach the top in a pennant race that runs for seven months. This year is the perfect time to fulfill your longing. LG leader Kim Hyeon-soo (35) conveyed his mindset toward winning the regular season.메이저https://highwaybrazil.com놀이터

When he needed it most, he fired his cannon and led the way to victory. On the 11th, in the bottom of the 8th inning against Kiwoom in Jamsil, Kim Hyun-soo connected opponent pitcher Moon Seong-hyun’s mistake with a two-run four in the final. On the ball count of 3-1, he attacked the slider driven to the center of Moon Seong-hyun, leading the team to a 5-3 victory.

With this victory, 1st place LG became the season record of 59 wins, 35 losses and 2 draws. While beating 2nd place SSG by a gap of 6 games, the first 60 wins were in sight. The following is the Q&A of Kim Hyun-soo and reporters who hit the final home run after the game.

– It was a mismatch in the middle. I wonder if I hit it with a ‘thank you’ momentarily, but how was the home run moment?

It wasn’t until thank you. However, the ball count was in my favor and I waited for a mismatch to come. I knew that Moon Seong-hyun was a very aggressive pitcher, so I thought that a walk would not come out easily. He was able to hit a home run as the driven ball came.

-You’re having a season where you don’t have a single home run. So I wonder if this final home run is meaningful.

There are no home runs to the extent that I wonder if there are times like this. Still, there is still a season left, so I will continue to work hard and try to do well. Today’s home run is good, but it feels better because the team was able to win.

-The current batting pace is good. He did well even in the game that was canceled due to rain. On the other hand, I wonder if there was a time when the batting cycle fluctuated as badly as this year. I am having a season with severe ups and downs.

I think there can be bad times like this. But this, too, must be overcome by the player. So I think it will be solved if I train more and keep training. I’m better now, so I hope things get better from now on.

-There have been a lot of hits lately, but there are also a lot of hits to the left by attacking the outside ball. Any tips?

I’m paying attention to the hip turn. At the same time, I feel that my hip turn has improved. Training focuses on hip turn and shifting of the center of gravity. In the past, I tried to pull it with my upper body too much, so the ball didn’t come out to the left, but now that it’s a turn, the ball comes out to the outside as well as the course.

-I am getting closer and closer to winning the championship that I want to do so much.

As the director said, you can’t be relieved. it’s still a crisis I think the biggest crisis is when we think the championship is right in front of us. Even to the players, I always said, ‘Let’s just watch today’s game. Let’s hope that (winning) will follow. Now we are in a situation where we don’t have to look down. Let’s just focus on our game and maintain a good atmosphere.” He said, ‘It’s going really well right now, so let’s go like this’.

-When was the time you said that?

I did it in Daegu. After losing the first two games, I thought that the players would care about other teams, so I said this. Right now, we don’t care about other teams, but we think that we only have to do what we do and only care about our game.

– Previously, winning the Korean Series was not a combined victory. I did it from the bottom up. So, I think winning first place is desperate.

Yes. I really want to win first place. I really want to do it, but like I said before, we will just watch the game tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and so on.

-Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop said that now, with less than 50 games left, is the point of victory. How important do you think this time is right now after a long professional career?

First of all, the director said that it is a winning place, so the winning place is correct. Players must follow the coach’s words and goals. And I also think that this time is personally difficult and difficult is over. That’s why you have to take good care of your body, and you have to take good care of it so that everyone can go to the game. A team is strong when there are many players who can go out. So, I hope all of our players will participate in the game in good health.

-You didn’t hit the manager hard during the home run ceremony today.

The balance was out of balance. There was a head coach next to him, but the head coach was going to hit lightly and the coach hit hard. But the moment I had to hit hard, the balance was off.

– Austin was ejected for protesting the decision. Did you say anything else to Austin?

He said it was fine. He said he could, he did and I think the referees could send him off too. He said part of the game and told Austin to go in and rest because there was nothing more he could do. He said to prepare tomorrow.

– The second half of the game went into a messy atmosphere. What did you say to the players besides Austin?

You can become sensitive when you are tired and tired and the game is not going well. I told the players that the flow of the game couldn’t continue to be good for us, so I told them to admit it and overcome it.

– Last year, you led the team home run with Oh Ji-hwan. Since the two of them are in the same situation this year, it seems like they feel the same way.

We talked about doing better, but we didn’t say anything special. In Jihwan’s case, as captain, he has a lot of work to do and a lot of defense. I just try to think that if we all win, we’ll be great.


‘Who are you by any chance?’ A foreign pitcher who even cut off his trademark mustache. Samsung team immediately joined

A new face appeared in the dugout of the Samsung Lions team having an away game against SSG Landers in Incheon. He was such a stranger that I had to think about who he was for a moment.메이저놀이터

Starting on the 11th, Samsung will have a 3-game match against SSG at SSG Landers Field in Incheon.

Samsung released Suarez, a foreign pitcher who left due to injury on the 10th, and recruited Taylor Widener, who was announced as a waiver from the NC Dinos.

Widener was released from NC, but less than a week later, he received a recruitment offer from Samsung and succeeded in re-employment.

Widener moved from NC to Samsung in his debut season in the KBO League and wrote the second baseball story in the KBO League.

Widener cut off his trademark mustache and appeared in the Samsung squad. Even his hair was cut short, and it looked like it was about to be planted.

With his mustache gone, Widener looked like a brand new foreign player. He looked more friendly when his impressive mustache was gone.

Widener learned the new team atmosphere by watching games with his newfound teammates.

Did he even cut off his cherished beard to change the mood?

Widener will receive $220,000 from Samsung if he fills all the remaining days of registration out of the annual salary of about $600,000 contracted with NC.

Widener pitched 61.2 innings in 11 appearances wearing an NC uniform this season, recording an average ERA of 4.52 with 4 wins and 2 losses. He is disappointing for a foreign pitcher. However, just before leaving NC, the last two games were impressive, with 2 runs in 6 innings against KT on July 28 and 1 run in 7 innings against Lotte on August 3.

Widener, who moved to Samsung, joined the Samsung team for an away game in Incheon on the 11th. He wore a Lions uniform and even finished a profile photo shoot. His uniform number changed from the number 27 he wore in NC to number 57.

A foreign player changed his uniform mid-season in his first year in the KBO League.

He may have had a big goal by entering Korean professional baseball, but he could not achieve that dream due to injuries and sluggishness in NC. However, after recovering from his injury, he also showed a gradual adaptation to the KBO league.

Widener had twists and turns when he moved teams during the season, but he took on a new challenge at Samsung.

Samsung unfortunately let go of Albert Suarez, who had been devoted for the past two years, and recruited Widener.

Samsung chose to say goodbye to Suarez, whom fans loved, but announced that they would fight all-out until the end of the season by recruiting Widener.

Samsung won the match against SSG on the 11th with a good feeling. The team atmosphere is not bad with 4 wins and 2 losses in recent matches.

Head coach Park Jin-man predicted that Widener would be able to start in the last Sunday match against SSG in a weekend three-game series.


I didn’t get pushed to the top of the league for ‘up to 153 km’… The first QS from the faded debut of the youngest member of the selection team

It was the fighting spirit of the youngest member of the selection team. He pitched perfectly enough not to be pushed to the top of the league, but he could not win.

Jang Jae-young (21, Kiwoom Heroes) started the game against the LG Twins in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Stadium on the 11th.스포츠토토

Jang Jae-young is the youngest member of the current Kiwoom starting team. He’s been coming and going between start and relief over the course of the season, but lately he’s been getting more mounds as a starter.

Kiwoom is pinning a lot of expectations on Jang Jae-young’s potential. His down payment of 900 million won is proof of that. Since his days at Deoksu High School, he has attracted attention by throwing a heavy fastball with a maximum speed of 150 km per hour. If he finds stability in his somewhat unstable pitch, he is full of expectations that he can develop into the best pitcher in the league in the next few years.

However, it takes a lot of time until that expectation is proven. He is still in progress. However, his 11th appearance showed hope of bursting with potential.

Jang Jae-young this day Hong Chang-ki (right fielder) – Moon Seong-ju (left fielder) – Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter) – Austin Dean (1st baseman) – Oh Ji-hwan (shortstop) – Moon Bo-gyeong (3rd baseman) – Park Dong-won (catcher) – Kim Min-seong (2nd baseman) – Park Hae-min ( Center fielder) against the LG batting line. LG currently ranks first in the league (59 wins, 2 draws, 35 losses/win rate: 0.628), and at the same time, has major offensive indicators such as team batting average (0.281), hits (927 hits), RBIs (487 RBIs), and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage/0.760). It boasts excellent attack power. It was a difficult team for Jang Jae-young to deal with easily.

I had to pay attention not only to the opposing team, but also to raising my own team. The team (42 wins, 3 draws, 60 losses/win rate 0.412) fell to the bottom of the league with a loss the day before (10th). Jang Jae-young’s shoulders had no choice but to be heavier because he needed victory even to reverse the atmosphere.

When I opened the lid, Jang Jae-young continued to fight better than expected. He also had a close pitching battle with Casey Kelly, who started as an opponent. In the meantime, the ball that caught Jang Jae-young’s ankle was stable, and his four-seam fastball reached a maximum of 153 km.

Jang Jae-young gave Moon Seong-joo a double and Kim Hyeon-soo a walk after one out in the first inning, making it 1 out and 1st and 2nd base. Afterwards, he got out of the crisis by catching Austin with a double hit in the direction of third baseman, second baseman, and first baseman.

In the bottom of the 3rd inning, shortstop Kim Hui-jip failed to catch the lead hitter Kim Min-seong and sent a runner out, but he blocked the follow-up batter well and did not concede. After one out in the bottom of the 4th inning, Kim Joon-wan hit the wall and caught Austin’s big batted ball, and with the help of the beast brothers, he went through innings by inning.

At the end of the 5th inning, I couldn’t overcome the opponent’s concentrated blows and allowed 3 runs, but overall it was stable. Even in the bottom of the 6th inning, he climbed the mound and neatly caught the opponent’s 4th through 6th hitters, Austin (looking strikeout), Oh Ji-hwan (center fielder floating ball), and Moon Bo-kyung (first baseman grounder) to finish the mound. The final score was 6 innings, 4 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, 3 runs, the first quality start in his debut (3 earned runs in 6 innings or less) and the most innings, and he did his part. Of course, the team lost 3-5, but Jang Jae-young stood out.

Kiwoom lost this day and is still at the bottom of the league. Still, it’s not over until it’s over. The season continues, and in this process, clear income such as team performance as well as player growth is needed.

Will Jang Jae-young be able to gradually permeate into the first team stage with his first quality start on this day? Perhaps, starting in the future will become very important not only for me but also for the team.


Dreams do not betray…Phyllis Lorenzen, ‘Human Victory’ no-hitter helmet

MLB (US Professional Baseball) Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Michael Lorenzen (31, USA) achieved his first no-hit no-run (a pitcher does not score a hit). In the United States, no-hit, no-run is usually used as a no-hitter. Lorenzen debuted in a Cincinnati Reds uniform in 2015 and played mainly as a bullpen pitcher. His career record was 37 wins, 36 losses, and an earned run average of 4 points. He was 6-7 with a 3.48 this season.

He started the메이저놀이터 home game against the Washington Nationals on the 10th and threw 124 pitches in 9 innings, allowing no hits and winning a scoreless shutout. He struck out 5 and allowed 4 walks. This is the fourth major league no-hitter this season. He became the 14th pitcher in Phillies history to taste a no-hitter.The Phillies hitters scored three runs from the bottom of the first inning. Afterwards, he scored 1 point at the end of the 2nd, 4th and 7th innings, lightening Lorenzen’s shoulders. In the top of the ninth inning, Lorenzen treated opponent batter Dominic Smith (28, USA) with a fly ball in the outfield on the center field side in the second out, confirming a 7-0 victory, embracing his teammates who rushed out to the ground and enjoying the joy of a record-breaking record. Cheryl, the mother in the crowd, and her wife Cathy, who was holding their daughter, cried ‘Oh my God’ and shed tears of joy.

But his life was far from ordinary. Born as the youngest of four boys, he admired his older brothers who played baseball from a young age. However, Lorenzen’s parents lived under the influence of alcohol and drugs and quarreled frequently. “It was to the point where the police came to my house every week,” he recalled. Lorenzen also dabbled in drugs during his middle and high school years. Then, at the age of 17, Lorenzen’s life changed when a man read the Gospels to him on the side of the road. He became a Christian, gave up drugs, and devoted himself to baseball. As a result, he was called up by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2010 draft. However, he decided that his skills were still lacking, so he chose to go to college (California State University Fullerton campus) instead of making his professional debut. As a result of steadily building his skills while also serving as an outfielder in college, Lorenzen was selected by the Reds in the 2013 draft. He stepped on the MLB stage in 2015, but was sluggish with an earned run average of 5.40 (4 wins and 9 losses).

Rather than making a name for himself as a pitcher, he aroused a lot of attention as a ‘two-hitter’. On July 1, 2018, against the Milwaukee Brewers, he appeared as a pinch hitter in the 7th inning and hit a home run. The pitcher’s pinch-hit home run was the first record in 65 years. In addition, on September 5, 2019, against the Phillies, after appearing as a pitcher in the 7th inning of the game, he came out as a batter in the 8th inning and crossed the fence, and in the 9th inning, he even took on the defense of the center fielder. At the time, Lorenzen became the first player in 98 years since Babe Ruth in 1921 to experience winning pitcher, home run, and fielder defense in one game. However, it was not a ‘starter feeling’, so he continued his career as a bullpen pitcher until 2021. Ahead of the 2022 season, he moved to the Los Angeles Angels, which guaranteed selection. He regained his confidence with an earned run average of 4.24 (8 wins, 6 losses). And in November of that year, he had a daughter and became his father.This season, he moved to the Detroit Tigers and enjoyed the honor of being selected as an ‘All-Star’ for the first time in his career. Then he was traded to the Phillies on the 2nd. And on the first day he stood on the mound at home stadium after becoming a member of the Phillies, Lorenzen shone brilliantly by completing the no-hitter pitch he dreamed of.


‘The home run king wakes up’ Murakami, 3 consecutive home runs → No. 22… 3 hits, 5 RBIs, a strong hit “I think it’s 30 points”

Last year, home run king Munetaka Murakami (Yakult Swallows), who set a new record for the most home runs in a single Japanese season (56 home runs), hit home runs in three consecutive games.스포츠토토

In the match against the Hiroshima Toyo Carp held on the 10th at Meiji Jingu Stadium in Tokyo, Japan, Murakami started as a third baseman on number 4 and made a big success with 3 hits, 1 home run, 5 RBIs and 3 runs in 5 at-bats. He led Yakult to a 13-3 victory.

Murakami entered the first at-bat in the first inning with a chance to safely load the bases. Yakult loaded the bases on a hit streak and an error by shortstop. Murakami hit a 145km fastball from Hiroshima starting pitcher Hiroki Tokoda and scored a superior double with two RBIs.

After the game, Murakami said, “I wanted to get the first run somehow, and yesterday Kitamura hit a home run with the bases loaded and scored 6 runs and said it was 90. I also hit the bases homer and thought I wanted to say 90 runs, so I entered the plate.”

After Murakami’s timely hit, Santana’s three-run homer scored six runs and took the lead.

Murakami, who withdrew with a fly ball in left field in the second inning and a strikeout on a missed swing in the fourth inning, took a 7-1 lead with two outs and first base in the sixth inning . He connected the chance with a right-handed hit. After that, two outs were loaded with a walk, and Yakult escaped to 9-1 with Yuhei Nakamura’s two RBIs and a timely hit. In the 8th inning, 2 outs, 1st and 2nd base, leading 10-1, the

outside He pushed a fastball and hit a three-run home run that went over the left fence, his 22nd home run of the season, his first three home runs in a row this season.

In an interview with the best player after the game, Murakami laughed and said, “Yesterday Kitamura scored 6 RBIs and said 90, so it’s about 30.” His debut hit and home run with bases is the 4th record in Nippon Professional Baseball history.

Murakami, who won three batting crowns (home run, batting average, RBI) last year, suffered a slump this season. As the summer progressed, the sense of hitting gradually increased.

Monthly batting average was 30.12 in July and 3.13 in August as well. Murakami scored 9 hits in 22 at-bats in the last 6 games. (batting average of 409) 3 homers, 10 RBIs and 7 runs scored.Murakami

participated in 100 games this season and recorded a batting average of .255 (90 hits in 353), 22 homers, 64 RBIs, 55 runs, and an OPS of .863. In the home run category, he is 2nd, 9 behind Okamoto Kazuma (Yomiuri, 31 homers), 1st.


Concerns about retirement → re-challenge → .474 batting average… The family team knew it too. that it could explode any day

 The Lotte Giants are struggling to revive the embers of the 5th round.

Standing at the forefront is outfielder Lee Jung-hoon (29). Called up to the 1st team on the 11th of last month, he had a batting average of .407 (18 hits in 38 at-bats) in 16 games until the match against Gocheok Kiwoom on the 10th. His OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) is 1.133. In three consecutive matches during the week against Kiwoom on the 8th and 10th, which were included in the starting lineup for all three games, he wielded 8 hits in 12 at-bats. Thanks to Lee Jung-hoon’s performance, Lotte finished the Seoul expedition in a good mood by recording a winning series in Kiwoom.스포츠토토

Lee Jung-hoon, who wore the KIA uniform in the 2nd 10th round of the 2017 rookie draft, had a career batting average of 2.29 li until last year. In the 2021 season, a career high record of 41 games batting average (32 hits in 129 bats), 2 homers, 14 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.699. He was a catcher who graduated from college and showed his potential as a mid-long range hitter on the Futures (2nd team) team, constantly aiming for opportunities to play in the 1st team, but it was hard to blossom. He even tried to change his position to first baseman in the 2021 season, which was under manager Matt Williams, but could not solve the chronic defensive anxiety. In the end, when the waiver was announced in October of last year, the KIA uniform was taken off.

When Lee Jung-hoon was sent out last year, KIA had a lot of worries. It was a talent that was a waste to give away easily. After joining, he recorded a batting average of 30% in the Futures League every season except for 2021, and he was a player with quite a lot of utilization, including backup catcher, first base substitute resource, and left-handed batting agent. However, despite his performance at Futures, his chances in the first team were few. In addition to defensive problems, the opportunity to return to Lee Jung-hoon was limited while the left-handed pinch hitter named Ko Jong-wook endured. It’s true that it was a waste to be rotten only as a ‘Futures player’ considering the considerable age of looking at the 30’s. After thinking about it, KIA chose to let go of Lee Jung-hoon. He is a dagger that can come back from the team’s point of view, but he had to consider the player’s future. Lee Jung-hoon, who had been thinking about his retirement at one time, took the hand of Lotte, who was watching his talent, and eventually succeeded in producing results on the first team stage after sweating heavily.

Lee Jung-hoon drew attention for his soft batting form during his KIA days. His natural strength, as well as his contact ability, made him a good hitter. Recently, Lotte has been showing this. Unlike the KIA days when he played as a catcher-first baseman, he changed his position to an outfielder at Lotte. As he is proving his excellent batting talent, if he proves his progress in defense, he is worthy of a full-time starter challenge.
