3h10m South Korea’s women’s baseball team falls to Hong Kong by one point in a hard-fought battle

It was a mistake. The South Korean women’s national baseball team was reduced to tears by an error.

The game lasted more than three hours. Considering that the average length of a KBO game this season is 3 hours and 16 minutes, including extra innings, it was a long, hard-fought game, even though it was a seven-inning game.

However, there are winners and losers in every game. On Sept. 9 (KST), South Korea was the loser of the first qualifying game for the Women’s Baseball World Cup 2024 between South Korea and Hong Kong in Thunder Bay, Canada. The Korean Women’s National Team fell just one point short to Hong Kong, 8-9.

Mistakes made the difference. While the team committed six defensive errors, Hong Kong only had one. Before the game, head coach Yang Sang-moon emphasized that it would be a “mistake battle,” and it was the Korean team that took advantage.

The Koreans gave up an early lead in the first inning. However, they tied the game at 1-2 in the bottom of the first inning, went scoreless in the top of the second inning, and took a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the second inning when Shin Noo-ri, the “No. 4 hitter,” hit a spectacular three-run triple.

But the lead was precarious. Every time Hong Kong scored, the national team would answer back. They held a 7-5 lead going into the fourth inning, but fielding errors cost them runs they shouldn’t have, and they couldn’t capitalize on the bases-loaded opportunities that came their way in each inning.

Both teams went scoreless in the fifth and sixth innings, and Team USA entered the top of the seventh with a two-run lead, 7-5. A run in the top of the seventh would have sealed the win for Team Korea.

However, Team Korea gave Hong Kong a big inning in the top of the seventh. With the bases loaded and one out, a pinch-hitter gave up a single to a Hong Kong batter. At the same time, a fielding error allowed an extra run to score. The score was tied at 7-7.

With momentum on their side, Hong Kong took the reins. The next batter walked Lee Ji-sook, but with the bases loaded, Hong Kong’s No. 1 hitter hit a two-run double to left field. In an instant, the Koreans were down 7-9.

Going into the bottom of the seventh inning, the Korean team stood in the dugout, determined to make a comeback, but ultimately put their heads down. In the bottom of the seventh, Yang Seo-jin led off with a walk and Shin Noo-ri advanced to second on a wild pitch. With runners on first and second, Park So-yeon was also hit by a pitch, giving the team a chance to load the bases.

Kim Hae-ri scored on a wild pitch to bring the score to 6-7. However, in the bottom of the second inning, the last pitch went straight to the infield and the team had to accept a disappointing one-run loss.

It was also disappointing to see the team miss a couple of chances with the bases loaded. After scoring just one run in the bottom of the first inning, the team had the bases loaded in the bottom of the third inning, but only managed to score one run on Choi Min-hee’s sacrifice fly to left field.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, the Koreans added two runs on a sacrifice fly to left field by Park So-yeon and a sacrifice fly to center field by Kim Hae-ri. They also failed to score in the bottom of the sixth inning. The only consolation came in the bottom of the inning, when Shin Nuri hit a “swooping” triple to right field with two outs.

There were only four hits on the day. Ahn Soo-ji, Shin Nuri, Kim Hyun-ah, and Park So-yeon each had one hit. Shin went 1-for-2 with a home run and three RBIs, Park So-yeon went 1-for-1 with a home run and two RBIs, and Kim Hae-ri went 1-for-2 without a hit.메이저놀이터

Park Min-seong struck out four in four innings but gave up five runs (four earned), while Kim Bomi gave up two runs in two innings and Lee Ji-sook gave up two runs in one inning (unearned) in relief.

Neymar leaves PSG and wants to return to Barça…20 minutes in South Korea?

Neymar reportedly wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and return to Barcelona.

French publication L’Equipe reported on August 8 (KST), “Neymar wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). PSG’s Neymar has told the club’s management that he wants to leave Paris this summer.”

European soccer reporter Fabrizio Romano added: “It’s no secret. Neymar wants to return to Barcelona. It’s always in his mind. Neymar is ready. But there is still a long way to go. Barcelona knows the terms of the deal, the salary and the player’s intentions. It’s up to Barcelona to decide if he wants to sign,” the report said.

The problem is the transfer fee. Florian Plettenberg, a reporter for Germany’s Sky Sports, said: “PSG are looking to sell Neymar this summer. However, the price remains the key issue.”

Neymar began his career with Brazilian side Santos in 2009 and quickly became a highly sought-after prospect beyond his native country. His performances attracted the attention of Barcelona, and he arrived at Camp Nou in 2013. Neymar’s flashy skills translated to the Spanish La Liga. In his first season, Neymar scored 15 goals and provided 11 assists, making him a key part of the team’s offense.

He formed an MSN line with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez and became a key part of the Barcelona attack. In four seasons, Neymar won 10 trophies, including two La Liga titles, one UEFA UCL title, and three Copa del Rey titles, and was recognized as a world-class player.

But Neymar had other dreams. He was looking for a team where he could be the center of attention, and PSG was interested in him. At the time, PSG paid a whopping €220 million transfer fee for Neymar. Neymar has been the spearhead of the attack at PSG. In 173 appearances over the past six seasons, he scored 118 goals and provided 77 assists, winning five Ligue 1 titles and the Coupe de France three times.

But last season, there was a dissonance. It was reported that PSG wanted to build a team around Kylian Mbappe and eventually sell Neymar due to his high weekly wages. However, the sale never materialized as Neymar wanted to stay.

At the start of the season, Neymar was in sensational form. He scored seven goals and provided six assists in the month of August. This season, however, he has been plagued by injuries and hasn’t been able to help his team when it matters. In late February, Neymar suffered an ankle injury that put him out for the season.

PSG fans were furious. Some PSG fans, angered by Messi’s trip to Saudi Arabia in May, took to the streets of Neymar’s home to protest. They were frustrated with the player’s underperformance and frequent injuries. While Neymar is at his best when he’s on the field each season, the fact that he only plays about 20 league games each season has led to a growing frustration among fans.

However, Neymar was in good spirits in training ahead of the new season. He and Lee Kang-in trained together with a smile on their faces, and fans were expecting a lot. In particular, his ‘bromance’ with Lee Kang-in attracted the attention of many fans.

Lee Kang-jin and Neymar made waves when they were seen sitting side by side on a bed receiving a massage. Neymar and Lee were also photographed training together and hugged affectionately.

The chemistry continued on the Japan tour. During their preseason tour of Japan, Lee spent time right next to Neymar. PSG organized a cultural experience during the tour. According to a video released on March 24, Lee spent time with Neymar at a tea ceremony and making okonomiyaki.

Even on the training field, the pair quickly bonded as they joked around. During a training session on March 31, Lee joked around with Neymar and even kicked him in the butt, indicating that the two have become very close.

Lee Kang-in and Neymar watched the game together on the bench against Inter Milan on Jan. 1, and their playful interaction became the talk of the town. When Neymar touched Lee’s bangs, Lee laughed and rejected the touch. In response, Neymar burst out laughing, his face full of mischief.

The two players also shared a dream moment on the field. On March 3, PSG faced off against Jeonbuk Hyundai. Neymar started and played the entire game, while Lee came on as a substitute in the 24th minute. It was a short game, but it was significant because it was the first time the two players had played together.

However, ahead of the start of the season, news broke that Neymar wanted to leave the club. Of course, for this to happen, Barcelona would have to pay an astronomical transfer fee. However, Barcelona are currently struggling to sign players due to their deteriorating finances.

On June 6, Spanish news outlet FCBN reported, “A week before their La Liga opener against Getafe, Barcelona have been unable to register most of their squad. They hope to activate a new lever of 60 million euros (about 863 million won).”

Barcelona made a total of three signings this summer. In addition to Gundogan, they brought in Inigo Martinez and Oriol Romeu. The three players cost just €3.4 million in transfer fees. Gundogan and Martinez were free agents and cost no transfer fee, while Romero cost €4.5 million in transfer fees, of which €1.1 million was reportedly paid by Romero himself.

Barcelona didn’t spend big last season, despite winning the La Liga title. In fact, they were in a financial position that made it difficult to spend. The pandemic has had a huge impact on Barcelona’s finances. As their overall revenues dropped, their finances exploded, and they were forced to part ways with the likes of Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann.

But the financial problems didn’t get any better. Barcelona ended up activating the lever four times last summer. Leveraging is the practice of selling future broadcasting rights in order to get paid in advance. “The second lever has been triggered,” said Spanish outlet Sport. Barcelona will receive 400 million euros (about 536 billion won) and pay Capital 15 percent of the rights for 25 years.”

With the money from the sale of the rights, Barcelona immediately began signing players. Barcelona signed Robert Lewandowski last season, as well as Jules Kunde and Hapinha. But there was a problem. The club needed more cash to register their new signings.

Eventually, Barcelona pulled the third lever. Barcelona sold a 24.5% stake in Barça Studios to Socios.com for €100 million. But it wasn’t enough, and Barcelona activated the fourth lever, finally closing the player registration.

The fire is out, but the problem is this summer. Barcelona have reduced their wage bill by selling Griezmann, Francisco Trincan and Nico Gonzalez and letting Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba go, but they still haven’t signed a player.

As a result, they will activate the lever again to free up cash. ‘FCBN’ reports that “Barcelona will need 60 million euros to register a first-team squad including Guendogan, Romero and Martinez. The money corresponds to the sale of 16% of the ‘Barça studio’ and was negotiated through a sale to a German investment fund.”온라인바카라,

Obviously, signing Neymar in this situation would be very difficult. For PSG, it would be difficult to sell a player who cost them a whopping €222 million for a pittance. PSG also have a €250 million price tag on Kylian Mbappe, who has one year left on his contract. So, it’s clear that Neymar’s move to Barcelona is not going to be easy.

Cleveland acquires outfielder Laureano from Oakland

The trade market is closed, but the signings continue.

Local media, including MLB.com, reported on Aug. 8 that the Cleveland Indians have acquired outfielder Ramon Laureano, 29. The team made the announcement shortly thereafter.

Lauriano was recently claimed off waivers from the Oakland Athletics. The Guardians will acquire him via waiver claim.

As a waiver claim, they will be responsible for all of his remaining salary. He was making $3.55 million this season. However, they can exercise their option through 2025.

In six seasons in the majors, Laureano has played in 471 games, batting .246 with a .318 on-base percentage and .433 slugging percentage.

This season, he’s batting .213 with a .280 on-base percentage, .364 slugging percentage, six home runs and 21 RBIs in 64 games. For the second year in a row, his production was below expectations, with an OPS in the 6s.온라인카지노

His defensive prowess was recognized. He has a major league-leading +17 Defensive Runs Saved (DRS).

In the past, he has gained some notoriety for catching fly balls in the outfield and throwing them to first base for a double play.

This season, he has a 1.1 bWAR (wins above replacement per Baseball Reference), tied for fourth in Oakland.

Meanwhile, the Giants designated right-hander Chris Valimont for assignment to make room for him on the 40-man roster.

‘I came up in 115 days…’ Hyoja transfer student’s intense presence is to blame? Dynasty outfielder packs up in a week’s time

LG Electronics in Daegu on the 6th. It was a disappointing game for Samsung.

They suffered a major setback early on.

They lost foreign starter Albert Suarez.

Suarez injured his left shin in the second inning when he went to cover first base after allowing a single to Kim Hyun-soo in the third inning. He came off the mound limping and looking uncomfortable. A Samsung representative said, “He was replaced due to left shin pain. He will undergo a detailed examination, including an MRI, at the SM Imaging Department.” The news came after the game. After the game, a Samsung representative said, “Suarez underwent an MRI examination and found about 12 centimeters of damage to the gastrocnemius muscle of his left calf,” and explained, “It is expected to take about four weeks to recover.”

To make matters worse, first baseman Ryu Ji-hyuk, who has been playing well in the offense lately, also left the game after the first inning. He slipped while trying to run back to first base on Oh’s grounder to second base in the second inning and immediately felt pain in his left thigh. This happened on the same day that Samsung deployed first baseman Oh Jae-il as the designated hitter.

A Samsung representative explained, “He had a muscle strain in his left thigh while fielding in the first inning and was replaced by a player protector. There are no plans for a medical examination.” Luckily, it wasn’t a serious injury, but the loss of the batting core made things difficult for the team.

The nucleus of the infield, who was batting 4-for-10 in his last 10 games and swinging the bat as hot as a heat wave. His absence was too much. His replacement sparked a firestorm.

Kim Tae-hoon, who suddenly replaced Ryu Ji-hyuk in the top of the first inning, batted fifth. It was a disappointing performance.

We had two big chances that didn’t pan out.

In the top of the first inning, with runners on first and second, Kim struck out on a three-pitch walk to LG starter Im Chan-gyu. With the bases loaded in the top of the third inning, 1-1, he struck out again.

The defense was also in trouble.

At the first base position, which is not the main position, vague and difficult balls were concentrated at crucial moments, leading to runs.

In the top of the second inning, with the score 0-0, Moon Bo-kyung’s grounder down the first base line hit first baseman Kim Tae-hoon’s mitt and trickled backward. Right fielder Koo Ja-rook chased it down, but it was thrown out at first. Musa to third, no outs. Park Dong-won grounded to the shortstop, allowing the runner at third to score. It was a difficult hit, but if Ryu Ji-hyuk, an expert infielder, had been there, it would have been a great play.

In the top of the fifth inning, with the score tied at 1-1, LG leadoff hitter Shin Min-jae hit a hard grounder between the first and second base lines. Kim Tae-hoon made a quick sliding catch, but the ball hit the mitt and deflected toward second base for an infield single.

With runners on first and third, Kim Tae-hoon prevented a run from scoring by calmly fielding Moon Sung-joo’s grounder to first base for the tag out, but he gave up the game-winning RBI single to Oh Ji-hwan in the next at-bat.메이저놀이터

Kim Tae-hoon was replaced by pinch-hitter Kim Ho-jae in the bottom of the fifth inning. Samsung lost the game 4-7.

Samsung removed Kim from the roster the next day, along with the injured Suarez.

The outfielder returned to the first team on August 1, 115 days after suffering an untimely ankle injury earlier in the season, and was eager to make his mark with his new team. As a compensation player for Kim Sang-soo, who moved to KT as a free agent, he was the best hitter in the second team.

‘Denmark is too narrow!’ Cho Kyu-sung finishes with determination + 7.7 points + 3G consecutive goal explosion! Meatwillan wrote a new history!

Denmark’s ‘tearaway’ Cho Kyu-sung is unstoppable. Mittwylan made history.

Mittwillan lost 1-4 in the third round of the Danish Superliga 2023-2024 on Saturday at 11 p.m. (ET) at Lingby Stadion in Lingby, Denmark. It was the first defeat of the season for Mittwillan, who had won two in a row after opening the season. With six points, Mittwillan is in fourth place. Lingbi recorded their first win of the season. Cho Kyu-sung came on as a 35th-minute substitute and exploded for a goal for the third straight game.

After starting the opening two games, Cho was benched. This was after playing 120 minutes in the Europa League Conference (UECL) qualifier three days earlier. Mittwillan lost the away second leg of the 2023-2024 UECL second qualifying round against Progress Niederkorn (Luxembourg) on April 4 in Differdange, Luxembourg, by a score of 1:2. However, having won the first leg 2-0 at home last month, Mittwilan advanced to the third qualifier with a 3-2 aggregate score from the first and second legs. Sori Kaba and Iver Forsum were up front in place of a tired Cho Kyu-sung. Jonas Lossl, Paulinho, Stefan Gartenmann, Sverrir Ingi Ingason, Henrik Dahlsgård, Oliver Sørensen Jensen, Emiliano Martinez, Chárez, and Amin Gigović made up the starting lineup.

Having played a hard-fought match, Mitwylan were heavily fatigued throughout. To make matters worse, the game got off to a bad start. In the sixth minute of the first half, Gartenmann was sent off for a direct challenge on video review. Outnumbered and outplayed, Mitwylan were pushed back by the latter. In the 17th minute, Paulinho conceded a penalty. Frédéric Gutkér converted the penalty. In the 29th minute, Colbane Pinsson added another goal to make it 0-2 at halftime.

In the 13th minute of the second half, Oliver Sørensen Jensen scored an own goal. A cross from the opposition hit Jensen’s foot and instead found its way into the Mittwillan goal. Mittwilan brought on Cho Kyu-sung in the 36th minute to try and find a way back into the game, but just a minute later Ljungby scored his fourth goal. A quick counter-attack led to the fourth goal. A low cross from the right was flicked on by Chukwuanyi.

But Cho Kyu-sung saved face. After coming on for Emiliano Martinez, Cho created chances with his lively movements and eventually found the back of the net. In second-half stoppage time, he found himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Henrik Dahlsgaard sent a long ball forward, and Cho Kyu-sung overcame the opposing defense to find himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper, and with a deft left-footed shot just over the keeper’s height, he split the goal. It was Cho’s third goal of the league and his third in three games. Cho had scored in all three league matches, starting with a goal in the league opener on July 22, followed by a goal in the second round match on July 30, and then a goal today. With three goals, Cho is tied for third on the team in scoring. Not surprisingly, it’s the most on the team.

Cho Kyu-sung became the first player in Mittwilan history to do so. He became the first player in the club’s 15-year history to score in each of his first three league games. “He is the only player in the club’s 15-year history to have scored in all three league games immediately after joining,” said Bet365 in Denmark. Three players have previously scored in their first two league games: Frank Onyekah (now at Brentford) in 2018, Anders Dreyer (now at Anderlecht) in 2020 and Cho in 2023. Given Onyekah’s rise to the big leagues, Cho’s record is quite significant. In his short time on the field, Cho had 3 successful passes, 1 key pass, 1 shot (1 on target), 1 ground contest, 2 aerial contests, and 1 foul. Sofascore gave him a rating of 7.7. He was the only player to score more than 7 points. Best performance.

He started the season opener against Hvidovre on March 22 and scored a spectacular header in the 11th minute of the second half after the game was tied at 0-0 to give his team a 1-0 victory. Cho raced onto a sharp cross from Brazilian left fullback Paulinho at the near post and rattled the net with a precise header. For his efforts, Cho was named the official Man of the Match (MOTM). Soccer statistics outlet Sofa Score gave him a 7.8 rating, the highest in the team.

On the 30th, he scored a right-footed mid-range shot from the front of the penalty box in first-half stoppage time against Silkeborg. After the match, soccer stats site Footmob gave him an 8.0 rating, the highest of any player on either team.

For his performance, Cho was named to the July Team of the Month. In the July Team of the Month for the 2023-24 season, which was announced by the Danish Superliga on July 5 through its official channel, Cho was lined up as a frontline right-back in a 4-4-2 formation. ‘Seven different teams, eight different nationalities, 11 talented players,’ the Danish Superliga said.

He was also nominated for the Superliga Player of the Month for July. On July 2, Super League announced on its official social media that five players, including Cho Kyu-sung, were nominated for Super League Player of the Month for July. The five nominees, including Cho Kyu-sung, will be voted for one player of the month by fans through a public vote. Jo’s competition is Nuama (Norsjelland), Finnbogason (Ljungby), Larsson (Copenhagen) and Keller (Odense).

Cho Kyu-sung donned the Mittwillan jersey on the 11th of last month. Mittwillan announced on the club’s channel on the 11th, “We have signed Cho Kyu-sung from Jeonbuk Hyundai. Until 2028. Cho Kyu-sung is the perfect player for Meatwillan,” the team officially announced.

Cho proved his worth at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. He received offers from all over the world. Scottish giants Celtic, Mainz in the Bundesliga, and Minnesota in the USL were the top three teams interested in signing him. However, Cho decided that he didn’t have the form to challenge in Europe at the time. He pushed the transfer to the summer. Jeonbuk was also active온라인바카라

He had a bit of a rough start to the season but has since picked up his game. After watching Cho Kyu-sung for a long time, Meatwillan reached out to him. Cho was quick to respond to Meatwillan’s offer. After joining Meatwillan, Cho said, “I had a chance to play in Europe and I think this is the right time. The club was very committed to me. I’m sure this is the right transfer. I am learning English every day. I am sociable and outgoing. I value being close to my teammates. I am motivated and I look forward to the challenge ahead.” Mittwillan also has high hopes for Cho, who will wear the number 10 shirt.

There were some concerns about Cho heading to Denmark. They were worried that he had gone to a marginal league instead of the big leagues. However, Cho is proving to be the right choice with his top performances. Mitwylan will host Omonia (Cyprus) on Nov. 11 in the first leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) third qualifying round. Unlike in the league, Cho has yet to find the back of the net in European competition. It will be interesting to see if he can bounce back and find the back of the net once again.

“It’s familiar”…Verlander tosses 7 innings of 2-run ball in Houston comeback win

By Yoon Seo Park = Justin Verlander (40), back in a Houston Astros uniform, pitched well in his comeback game.

The right-hander pitched seven innings against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium in New York, New York, U.S., on June 6, giving up two runs on seven hits (one home run) with two walks and four strikeouts.

It was his first start since being acquired from Houston.

Verlander signed a two-year, $86 million contract with the New York Mets ahead of this season, leaving Houston, where he had been since the middle of the 2017 season.

However, he rejoined the Astros via trade on Feb. 2. He had the option to veto the trade, but agreed to it and returned to his hometown team after nine months.

Verlander was on the mound until the seventh inning, allowing just two runs, but took the loss in the team’s 1-3 loss.

After giving up two walks in the first inning to put runners on first and second, Verlander struck out DJ LeMahieu on a wild pitch to get out of the jam.

In the second, he gave up a leadoff single to Isaiah Kainer-Palepa, a double to Harrison Vader and a sacrifice fly to Anthony Volpi.

In the bottom of the third, Verlander doubled off Giancarlo Stanton and gave up a single to LeMahieu. However, Stanton was caught stealing third and was thrown out at home by center fielder Mauricio Duvon to end the inning.

After retiring the side in order in the fourth, Verlander added another run in the fifth. He gave up a solo home run to Jake Bauers in the first inning.

After retiring the next three batters in order in the sixth, Verlander took the mound in the seventh. He gave up a single up the middle to Bowers in the second, but got Aaron Judge to pop out to second.온라인카지노

After throwing 97 pitches, Verlander was replaced by Kendall Graveman in the eighth with his team trailing 1-2.

“It feels strangely familiar,” Verlander said, via MLB.com. It’s only been three months that I haven’t been here because I missed a month with an injury. It’s not hard to think I’ve been here the whole time.” “I get to go out there and play with my teammates that I love and fight with. It’s a lot of fun,” he said of his return.

KKKKKKK→Roar with no outs…”As drawn on drawing paper” 31-year-old free agent is two wins away from 10 in three years

Two wins away from 10.

LG Twins right-hander Im Chan-kyu started the 12th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Samsung Lions on Saturday at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu, South Korea, and pitched five innings of five-hit ball, striking out seven and giving up one run in the team’s 7-4 win.

Lim has been the leader of LG’s domestic starting staff this season, posting an 8-2 record with a 3.26 ERA in 20 games. He is now two wins away from his first double-digit win total in three years.

In the first inning, he got Kim Hyun-jun and Kim Sung-yoon to ground out to short. He gave up a single to Koo Ja-roo and a walk to Kang Min-ho, but struck out pinch-hitter Kim Tae-hoon.

The second inning started well. He got Kang to ground out to first base and Oh Jae-il to fly out to left field. However, he gave up a home run to Lee Jae-hyun for the first run of the game. He then got Kim Dong-jin to ground out to first base.

In the third inning, there was another crisis. Kim Hyun-joon walked and Kim Sung-yoon and Koo Ja-rook followed with consecutive singles. The bases were loaded and the game was in jeopardy. But he survived. Shin Min-jae got Kang Min-ho to ground out. He then struck out Kim Tae-hoon and Kang Kang-ul to erase the run. Lim Chan-kyu roared.

After turning the fourth inning into an easy three-hit shutout, Im struck out Kim Hyun-jun to lead off the fifth. He gave up a single to Kim Sung-yoon, but got Koo Ja-rook to fly out to shortstop and Kim Ho-jae to strike out swinging.

That was it for Im. He handed the mound over to Ham Deok-ju in the bottom of the sixth inning with his team leading 5-1. Lim finished the day with five innings of five-hit ball, three walks, seven strikeouts and one earned run.

He threw 101 pitches on the day. He threw 37 fastballs, two curves, 33 changeups, and four sliders. His fastball topped out at 145 mph.

Ham Deok-ju, Kim Jin-sung, Jung Woo-young, Yoo Young-chan, and Ko Woo-seok came in to pitch four innings of three-run ball to preserve the win for LG and Chan-gyu Lim. With the win, Lim improved to 8-0 on the season.

If it wasn’t for his performance, LG would have been swept by Samsung and traveled to Gwangju, but thanks to Im’s performance, the team snapped a two-game losing streak and traveled to Gwangju.

“There were a lot of crises in the beginning of the game, but he handled them well and fulfilled his role as a starter,” said LG head coach Yeom Kyung-yeop.메이저놀이터

After the game, Im said, “It’s great to end the team’s losing streak. It’s unfortunate that I couldn’t pitch more innings, but I feel like I did the minimum,” he said.

He continued, “I didn’t start the season thinking about 10 wins. The team’s hitting and good defense have given us a lot of wins without me having to pitch a lot of innings. It’s just my job to go out there and pitch as hard as the team needs me to pitch,” he concluded.

Highly paid Ndombele still has ‘0’ offers…will he leave in free agency?

Will Tangi Ndombele, 26, eventually hang up his Tottenham shirt?

“Ndombele had one last chance at Tottenham ahead of pre-season and it looked like he was going to be part of the Spurs plans again,” the UK’s The Boot said on June 6, “but his chance is now gone. He is free to find a new club.”

Citing a report from the Evening Standard, the media outlet added: “Ndombele was the center of attention during pre-season but quickly faded. It’s hard to see him finding a place in Enzi Postecoglou’s system. Ndombele is free to find a new club.”

However, there are still obstacles to Ndombele’s transfer. One of them is his huge salary. “Ndombele has been on the release list for some time, but no team has paid to sign him. He is on a huge wage at Tottenham, which is why no team wants to sign him on a permanent basis,” the outlet noted.

In fact, Ndombele has recently been loaned out to Lyon (France) and Napoli (Italy), both of which have fallen through. The player’s contract with Tottenham runs until 2025, meaning a hefty transfer fee would be inevitable. That’s not to say that Ndombele hasn’t been a consistent performer in every game. Finally, the outlet concluded, “Ndombele has no future in London. It remains to be seen where his next move will be.”

Ndombele joined Tottenham from Lyon in July 2019 for €62 million and was expected to be a big boost to the midfield at the time. Ndombele was a quality central midfielder in the French Ligue 1 and was seen as the perfect fit for Tottenham, especially as he would help address their lack of forward movement. The €62 million Tottenham spent on Ndombele was the most expensive transfer in the club’s history.

However, Ndombele’s performance at Tottenham has been disappointing. His forward movement, which was seen as a strength, led to turnovers in every game. Whether he was protecting the defense or assisting in the attack, his performance was not satisfactory. Ndombele finished the 2019-20 season with just two goals and four assists in 29 official games. In the second half of the year, a series of injuries kept him on the bench.

In 2020-21, Ndombele showed signs of improvement with six goals and four assists in 46 official games. However, his form declined again in the second half of the season and he was eventually loaned out to Lyon for the 2021-22 season. Last season, he won the league title in a Napoli jersey, but only played around 30 minutes per game. It wasn’t an impressive performance.온라인바카라

Tottenham entered a new era in the 2023-24 season with Postecoglou at the helm. With the expected departure of veteran players and the arrival of new faces, the roster has changed. Spurs bolstered their second line with the signing of James Maddison. Giovani Lo Celso also returned from loan and impressed in preseason. But there was no place for Ndombele.

Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe (Turkkiye) have been mentioned as possible future destinations for Ndombele. Tottenham are set to part ways with the most expensive player in club history. However, he has two more years left on his contract, so they will have to either subsidize his salary or mutually terminate his contract.

‘9G draw’ Jeju vs ‘last place’ Gangwon, two teams desperate for a ‘reversal’!

The dictionary meaning of ‘IF’ is ‘if only’. With the slogan ‘If I become a soccer journalist’, started with the idea that anyone can become a soccer journalist. Together with the ‘No. 1’ soccer magazine ‘FourFourTwo’, which has the largest circulation in the world, will cover various soccer news from the K League to the EPL and La Liga. Stay tuned! [Editor’s note].

Jeju, which has slumped to ninth place in the league with three draws and six losses in its last nine games, and Gangwon, which has fallen to the bottom of the table, will look to rebound.

Jeju United and Gangwon FC will meet in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Jeju World Cup Stadium at 7:30 p.m. on June 6. Currently, Jeju is in ninth place with 30 points, while Incheon is in last place with 16 points. The three points in this match are more important than ever for both teams, who have not been on a good run of form lately.

Jeju struggles to find its center amid departures of key players

Gone are the days of Jeju’s unstoppable rise. Up until the last 16 rounds, Jeju was unbeaten in eight league games and in second place. Now, their winless streak has stretched to nine games (three draws and six losses) and they are in ninth place.

First, injuries have been a problem for Jeju this season. Captain Choi Young-joon suffered a long-term injury early in the season and has yet to return, while Koo Ja-cheol hasn’t played many games all season. Lee Chang-min left the team due to military obligations, and Ahn Hyun-beom, who was also called up to the national team, had to be sent to Jeonbuk. It seems like the team hasn’t been able to find a way to fill the void.

No coach change is working… Gangwon showing signs of life

Gangwon has been stuck at the bottom of the table alongside Suwon since the beginning of the season. It’s a far cry from last season, when they made it to the Final A in dramatic fashion. They don’t have any big names, but at the same time, they don’t have any obvious reinforcements. Add to that the fact that their tactically crucial top resources were not able to contribute much, and they continued to struggle.

Eventually, Kang Won pulled out the knife. They parted ways with Choi Yong-soo and appointed Yoon Jeong-hwan. However, the usual coach change didn’t work for Kangwon. After six games, the team had four draws and two losses. Not only did they not win a single game, but they also lost both of their head-to-head matches against Suwon, which pushed them to the bottom of the table.

4 in most goals conceded: Jeju – #5 in team goals scored: Gangwon

Jeju and Gangwon’s weaknesses are polar opposites. Jeju’s scoring isn’t bad, but their defense is shaky. They are fourth in the league in team goals conceded (34), behind Suwon FC, Daejeon, and Suwon. They have conceded 20 goals during their winless streak. That’s at least two goals per game.

Gangwon has an extremely poor offense. They have only scored 15 goals in 24 games already this season. The team’s goal total is by far the worst in the league. Aside from Park Sang-hyuk, who is currently third in the league, no other player has scored more than two goals. Even their key striker, Yang Hyun-joon, recently moved to Celtic.온라인카지노

Both teams face each other at a tougher point than ever. However, there is a point where Jeju has a little more to look forward to. Last season, they played Gangwon and
