‘5G batting average of 0.125’ decline in physical fitness → pace drops… Noh Si-hwan talks to manager Choi Won-ho

“I’m not going to pull out.”

Hanwha head coach Choi Won-ho (50) expresses his sympathy for Noh Si-hwan (23), who hasn’t been in the best of form lately. “It’s the end of the season and I have to go to the national team. His pace has definitely dropped recently.

“I’m sure it’s hard for him, but it’s not a situation where he won’t play,” Choi Won-ho said ahead of his team’s 2023 KBO League regular season game against SSG at Daejeon’s Hanwha Life Eagles Park on Nov. 19.

“If it was really hard, he came to me first and said, ‘Why don’t you bat as a designated hitter,’ so I went out as a designated hitter yesterday,” he said, showing a bitter smile.

In 123 games this season, Noh has exploded for a .298 batting average, 30 home runs, 96 RBIs, a .388 on-base percentage, a .549 slugging percentage, and a .937 OPS. That’s MVP pace.

His last five games, however, have not been good. In five games from December 12-18, he’s just 2-for-16 with a .125 batting average. No home runs, no RBIs. His OPS is 0.388.

This can be attributed to a decline in fitness. There are about 20 games left in the season. It’s inevitable that any player will lose fitness. However, Noh has been playing all season as the team’s center fielder. He started every game.

On the 17th, they played a doubleheader against KT. They lost both games. Game 2 was the big one. They had to wait a whopping 204 minutes due to rain during the game. That’s three hours and 24 minutes.

The players were tired, the coaching staff was tired, and the fans were tired. The fans were too. On the 18th, there was an aftermath. Chae Eun-sung was pulled from the game. Noh Si-hwan was the designated hitter.

Coach Choi Won-ho said, “In yesterday’s game, Chae Eun-sung looked like she couldn’t play. She couldn’t move. The bat wasn’t even spinning. Noh Si-hwan came to me first and told me, so I sent him out as a designated hitter.”

He also said, “It’s unusual that Noh Si-hwan came and spoke first. For example, we played a doubleheader against Kiwoom in Gochuk on the 9th. I took one game as a designated hitter. Noh Si-hwan came up and said he would play third base in both games. He didn’t want to play. I stopped him,” he recalled.메이저놀이터

In 23 days, the Korean baseball team for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games will convene. I can’t help but pay attention to that. His pace has sagged, and it’s a complicated situation mentally. Still, he doesn’t want to take a break.

Even as a coach, I wish I could give him a break, but I can’t. He’s an integral part of the team. That’s why I feel even more sorry for him.

‘Man Utd superstar’ Wan Bissaka out long term with hamstring injury…up to 2 months expected

It’s too bad it can’t be fixed. Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be out for a while with a hamstring injury.

The Red Devils announced on the club’s website on Monday (Aug. 18) that “Wan-Bissaka will be out for some time following the injury he sustained in the closing stages of the game against Brighton on Saturday. Further tests are required to determine the length of his injury. At the moment, he is expected to be out for several weeks.”

“Wan Bissaka has been ruled out for two months with a hamstring injury,” said The Athletic in the UK.

The bad news continues to pile up. The Red Devils have already lost several players to injuries and other issues early in the season. Rafael Varane and Mason Mount have already been sidelined for some time with injuries. Luke Shaw and Tyrrell Malacia have also been sidelined with injury problems.

The offense is also in trouble. First, Jaden Sancho rebelled against head coach Eric ten Hagh by calling himself a scapegoat, which led to his exclusion from first-team training. Sancho was reportedly unhappy about being left out of the squad, citing constant tardiness and a poor training attitude.

Anthony was in the news for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend. As a result, Anthony was also cut from the team for the time being. “The club has been made aware of the allegations against Anthony. Anthony has agreed to defer his return until further notice in order to resolve the allegations.”바카라

To make matters worse, Wan-Bissaka was also sidelined with an injury. Of course, United had two quality right-backs in Diogo Dalot and Wan-Bissaka. However, the pressure is on with a tough schedule coming up.

United host Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group A tie on Nov. 21. After that, they’ll play the league, the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup), and the UEFA UCL second leg every three to four days until the seventh of next month. That’s six games in about 18 days.

On average, hamstrings require more than four weeks of recovery before they can return. We’ll have to wait for the exact results of the tests, but at this point, we can’t rule out a return after the October A-match break. Naturally, there is a lot of pressure on Dalot. Coach Ten Haag has also been plagued by injury problems.

‘Challenge for 3 consecutive golds!’ Lee Kang-in 18, Jung Woo-young 7, Cho Young-wook 10…Hwang Sun-hong-ho reveals AG number

The Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games soccer team, led by Hwang Sun-hong, has been unveiled.

The Korea Football Association (KFA) released the shirt numbers of the 22 members of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games squad on its official social media channels on Monday. Hwang Sun-hong’s side will open their campaign against Kuwait on Sept. 19, followed by three group matches against Thailand on Sept. 21 and Bahrain on Sept. 24.

It will be the third consecutive gold medal for Korea. South Korea won gold at both the 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games.

The team is even stronger with the addition of ace Lee Kang-in. The KFA announced on Friday, “The KFA has reached an agreement with the club of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) that Lee Kang-in will join the Asian Games squad after the conclusion of the club’s UEFA Champions League (UCL) home match against Dortmund on Nov. 19, local time in France. Accordingly, Lee will travel to Hangzhou, China, to join the Asian Games team on the 20th local time in France,” the KFA officially announced.

“After receiving an email from PSG on the 13th to allow Lee to travel to the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, subject to the rescheduling of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, the KFA held discussions with PSG until late on the 14th, and finally received an official response from PSG on the 14th to allow Lee to join the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games squad on the 20th without any other preconditions.”

Lee will join the team after their UEFA UCL match against Dortmund. However, he will not be able to play in the first group game against Kuwait as he will not arrive in Hangzhou until the 20th. He is also unlikely to play against Thailand on the 21st, given his fitness issues.

He is likely to play for the first time against Bahrain in the third round. Coach Hwang Sun-hong had hoped to get him on board for a game or two before the tournament, but at least Lee Kang-in will be able to work with the team for at least one more match.

The KFA released the numbers of the 22-man squad a day before the first leg against Kuwait. Goalkeeper Lee Kwang-yeon was given the number one jersey. Captain Baek Seung-ho was given the number 8, while vice captain Lee Jae-ik was given the number 5. Cho Young-wook will wear the ace number 10, Jung Woo-young will wear the number 7, and Uhm Won-sang will wear the number 11.

Lee Kang-in was given the number 18. This is the same number he wore at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Lee wore the number 10 at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland, his first tournament with the Korean flag. He scored two goals and made four assists, winning the Golden Ball.메이저놀이터

Lee also wore the number 8 shirt at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, and last year he was given the number 13 shirt at the 2022 AFC U-23 Asian Cup. For this tournament, he will wear the same number, 18, as he did at the last World Cup in Qatar.

“The national team is missing 70% of its strength…” How much of a presence was Lee Jung-hoo, hold record AG national team set-up man “I’m about 1%”

Kim Jung-hoo is a huge presence among the younger players in his 20s. Lee Jung-hoo is a big loss for the Asian Games team as he is out with an ankle injury.

KT pitcher Park Young-hyun recorded his 30th hold of the season with a one-hit, two-strikeout perfect game in the eighth inning against the Changwon NC on April 13. At 19 years, 11 months, and 2 days old, he became the youngest player in KBO history to reach the 30-hit mark. He surpassed the previous record of 21 years, 3 months, and 20 days set by Han Hyun-hee (then of Nexen) in 2014.

“My first goal is to win a gold medal at the Asian Games,” said Park, who is also a member of the Asian Games team.

However, there are many worries that the Asian Games team is the weakest ever. After the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, the KBO decided to focus on players aged 24 or younger and in their third year of professional baseball, with no interruption to the regular season for players aged 25 or younger (due to the one-year postponement of the Hangzhou Asian Games) and a maximum of three players per team.

The Asian Games squad is young, with most players having no international experience. Three wildcards (players with no age limit) were selected, all in their 20s.

However, Lee Jung-hoo, a key member of the team, suffered an ankle injury at the end of July and underwent surgery.

“I lost 70% of my power…” Park Young-hyun said weakly, referring to Lee’s injury. That means he’s a key player in the offense. Lee played for the national team at the 2018 Asian Games and continued to excel internationally until the World Baseball Classic in March.

When asked what percentage he thought he would be, Park humbly said, “I’d say about 1 percent, and I’m grateful for even 1 percent.”

The Hangzhou Asian Games team will convene at the Gocheok Dome on March 23 for their first training session. Lee’s absence isn’t the only concern.

NC Koo Chang-mo, who was expected to be a left-handed ace, has been out of action for more than three months due to an anterior forearm injury and a stress fracture in his left arm. Koo plans to pitch two innings against KT’s second team in the Futures League on April 19 in Iksan. Ryu Joong-il, the national team manager, and Cho Kye-hyun, the chairman of the Korea Baseball Organization, will travel to Iksan to watch him pitch.

KT’s Kang Baek-ho, the team’s leading hitter after Lee Jeong-hoo, also spent a long time in the second team due to physical and mental fatigue. He returned to the first team on May 5, but only as a substitute. Park Byung-ho, who recovered from a calf strain from Samsung Electronics on Nov. 14, has been playing first base, while Kang Baek-ho has been starting as the designated hitter.메이저놀이터

Last year’s save king Go Woo-seok and hold king Jung Woo-young have been up and down this season. Their ERAs are in the low 3s and high 4s, respectively. Ryu Joong-il, the head coach of the Asian Games team, has his work cut out for him.

‘Huge prospect’ Man Utd had no choice but to dump, ‘with a list of replacements’ after loan to Getafe…’Back after a long 602 days?

Mason Greenwood was named to the substitutes list.

Getafe will face Osasuna in the fifth round of the 2023-24 Spanish La Liga on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez in Madrid, Spain. Getafe currently sits in 15th place with four points (W, D, L, 2G, 6L).

Ahead of the match, the starting lineup was announced. There were some familiar names. Greenwood, who joined Getafe on loan from Manchester United this summer, was among the substitutes. Getafe officially announced the loan signing of Greenwood on the club’s website on July 2.

Last month, the Red Devils parted ways with Greenwood after he was accused of sexual assault. “We have concluded our investigation into Greenwood. The process began in February 2023 when all charges were dropped. We worked to gather as much information as possible. Based on the information we obtained, we concluded that Mr. Greenwood was not involved in the offenses charged, but as he has admitted today, he made a mistake and takes responsibility. We recognize that everyone involved with him has found it difficult to continue his career at United. We have therefore mutually agreed that it would be in his best interests to leave Old Trafford.”

Prior to the club’s announcement, Greenwood said: “I grew up knowing that violence or abuse in any relationship is wrong. I was cleared of all charges in February, but I recognize that I made a mistake and will take responsibility. I am learning to take responsibility to lead by example as a professional athlete and am focused on being a good partner and father. The best decision for all of us is to leave Old Trafford and continue my career. I am grateful to my family and everyone who has supported me and now I have to repay the trust. I want to be a better player, but I also want to be a good father and a good person, and I will use my talents in a positive way on and off the pitch.” This is the end of an association between United and Greenwood that began at the age of eight.

Greenwood is one of Manchester United’s most promising youngsters. The youngster, who has represented England at every age group, has made a name for himself since making his professional debut in the 2018-19 season. In 2019-20, he scored 10 goals in 31 appearances in the English Premier League (EPL) and five goals in the UEFA Europa League (UEL), proving his potential.

Greenwood’s meteoric rise was punctuated by trouble off the field. After his call-up to the England squad in 2020, it was reported that he and Phil Foden had allowed a woman into their hotel room. The pair were criticized for breaking coronavirus protocols, as well as for their raunchy personal lives. Greenwood apologized and put the matter behind him.

Another controversy followed. He was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting his girlfriend and making death threats. An audio recording circulating on social media shocked the country. “We are aware of the allegations circulating on social media. We will not comment further until the facts are known. Violence of any kind will not be tolerated. He will not return to training or matches until further notice.” And with that, Greenwood was suspended and gone.

He was eventually cleared. But his chances of returning to United were slim. There were many voices inside and outside the club that opposed Greenwood’s return. Eventually, United officially announced that they had parted ways with Greenwood. A prospect who was once the center of attention not only at United, but across England, had left Old Trafford in a huff. There was talk of a mutually agreeable termination of his contract, but a loan move to Getafe was finalized.바카라

But Greenwood is ready to make a comeback. The last time Greenwood played for United was on January 23, 2022. It would be a long 602 days before he could step on the pitch.

10-man Daegu defeats Suwon 1-0…Daegu leaps to 4th place, Suwon fails to escape bottom spot

Daegu FC overcame a numerical disadvantage to earn three points away at Suwon Samsung. Daegu leapfrogged into the top half of the table, while Suwon remained at the bottom (12th).

Daegu won 1-0 against Suwon in the 30th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Suwon World Cup Stadium on Sunday. Daegu moved up to fourth place (11W, 11D, 8L, 44 points), while Suwon failed to escape the bottom of the table (5W, 7D, 18L, 22 points).

A busy road ahead There was a lot at stake in the clash between the two teams. Daegu, who were in seventh place the day before (16th), could leapfrog Suwon to fourth if they beat them on the day. As Gangwon FC had beaten Jeonbuk Hyundai the day before to move up to 11th place (4W, 12D, 14L, 24P), Suwon, who dropped to 12th, needed to win against Daegu to keep their hopes of staying in the top flight alive.

However, both Daegu and Suwon were plagued by power leaks. Between them, both teams had more than a dozen players missing due to injuries, suspensions, and U-24 national team call-ups. “We really want to win this game as the players who left have filled the void with great desire,” said Daegu head coach Choi Won-kwon. “In a game like this, it’s important to score first and stay focused in the second half,” said Suwon head coach Kim Byung-soo.메이저놀이터

Neither team created many chances in the early stages of the game. They traded the ball back and forth in the midfield. It was Suwon who made the first change. They took off Kim Kyung-jung, Park Hee-joon, and Kim Bo-kyung at halftime and brought on Lee Ki-je, Mullich, and Werikpopo. In the 11th minute of the second half, the tide seemed to turn in Suwon’s favor when Daegu’s Beltola was sent off for elbowing Werikpopo on VAR (video assistant referee).

However, Daegu substituted Lee Yong-rae for Park Se-jin in the 15th minute of the second half to crack down on the back door. Suwon began to look desperate to stop Daegu’s counter-attacks, and it was Daegu’s Vasellus who finally put the finishing touches on the match in stoppage time when he converted a personalized chance.

Lotte’s 5 starters again…Shim Jae-min is confirmed, but who’s the other spot?

Lotte will have a hole in its starting rotation during the Hangzhou Asian Games, which begin on Nov. 23.

With homegrown starters Park Se-woong and Na Kyun-ahn, the mainstays of the starting rotation, on the final roster for the Asian Games, Lotte will need two starting pitchers for the duration.

One spot has been filled. Shim Jae-min, who has been used as a substitute starter recently, has given the team a glimmer of hope with five innings of one-run ball for the second straight game. He also pitched five innings of one-run ball against KIA on March 13, leading the Kangwoo to a cold victory. “Fortunately, we need an alternate starter now, and I think it will help the team a lot,” said acting manager Lee Jong-woon. “When the two starters are out, someone has to step up, and Shim Jae-min is pitching like that, which is a strength for us.”

For the other spot, Lee Jong-woon is considering a number of options.

One of the options is Han Hyun-hee. Han signed with Lotte as a free agent last winter and was a part of the starting rotation at the beginning of the season.

However, the results were not promising. Through May, he seemed to be doing his job, going 3-4 with a 4.61 ERA in eight starts. However, in June, after a five-inning, two-run start against KIA on the 4th, he struggled, giving up five runs (three earned) in 4.1 innings against Samsung on the 10th and five runs in 4.1 innings against SSG on the 16th.

Eventually, he was moved to the bullpen and has been working as the back of the mound. However, he hasn’t been very reliable. In the second half of the season, he went 1-2 with a 5.73 ERA in 12 games, similar to his first half.

He could be headed to the second team. Lee mentioned Lee In-bok and Kim Do-kyu.

Lee In-bok seemed to establish himself as a five-starter last year. He went 9-9 with a 4.19 ERA in 26 games in 2022. He showed promise as he spent the season in the starting rotation for the first time since his debut.

However, he underwent season-ending elbow labrum surgery and was not named to the opening day roster. He made a late comeback on June 22 against KT, but was unable to fulfill his role. His first-team record this year was 1-3 with a 5.92 ERA in eight games.

Kim Do-gyu is a right-handed pitcher who has been a staple of the team in recent years.

However, he is primarily a bullpen pitcher, which means he is not able to work long innings.

Lotte recently lost Kim Sang-soo to a torn adductor muscle and Koo Seung-min, who pitched 58.1 innings in 63 games, to the disabled list. If the starting pitching isn’t up to par, the burden on the bullpen becomes even greater.메이저놀이터

It’s a lot to ask of Lotte, who have been keeping their hopes alive for fall baseball with every game.

For now, Lee plans to utilize the pitchers in the first team as much as possible. “It can be flexible depending on their physical condition,” he said, “It’s a chance for players who haven’t had a chance, and it’s up to them to throw good pitches and make good use of them.”

Hwang explodes for third goal of season against Liverpool, ‘tied’ with Son Heung-min for PL lead

South Korea’s Hwang Hee-chan scored his third goal of the season in a home match against Liverpool.

Hwang’s English Premier League club Wolverhampton is hosting Liverpool in the fifth round of the 2023/24 Premier League at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England, starting at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday. Heading into the match, Wolverhampton is 1-3-1 (3 points) and in 15th place. Liverpool, on the other hand, are in third place with three wins and a draw (10 points).

Wolverhampton have the advantage of being at home, but with their opponents being the favorites, even a point would be a successful 90 minutes.

Against this backdrop, Wolverhampton manager Garry O’Neill has brought back Hwang Hee-chan, the team’s top scorer this season, to lead the charge against Liverpool. O’Neill has named Portuguese international Jose Sa in goal, with Nelson Semedo (Portugal), Max Kilman (England), Craig Dawson (England), and Layan Ayew-Nouri (Algeria) in a back four.

In the middle of the park was Jean-Lucerne Belgarde (France), who was making his Premier League debut, alongside João Gomes (Brazil) and Mario Lemina (Gabon). The front three was made up of Hwang Hee-chan, Mateus Cunha (Brazil) and Pedro Neto (Portugal) from left to right.

O’Neill’s gamble paid off. Hwang gave Wolverhampton the lead with a goal in the seventh minute of the first half at 0-0. After shutting down Liverpool’s attack, Wolverhampton found Neto on the left flank, who dribbled 60 meters before beating three defenders on the left side of the penalty area and crossing low to the other side. Hwang ran onto it and fired a diagonal right-footed shot from the right side of the goal area.

Liverpool’s Brazilian international goalkeeper Alisson Becker was quick to stop the shot, but the ball had already crossed the goal line. Hwang celebrated by running in front of the home fans, jumping up and down and pumping his fist in the air.

The goal was Hwang’s third of the season. After just five games, he has already matched his goal tally from last season’s Premier League.

Hwang started this season off the bench, but his two goals have helped him earn his way back into the starting lineup.

After playing 27 minutes in the opening match against Manchester United on August 14, Hwang came on 18 minutes into the second half and scored a header five minutes after coming on in the 10th minute of the second half to overcome a 0-4 deficit against Brighton on August 19, giving him his first Premier League goal of the new season.

Hwang built on that goal to make his first start of the season against Everton on Aug. 26, but was forced off midway through the first half when he felt a twinge in his hamstring (the muscle in the back of his thigh), a nagging injury. However, it turned out not to be a serious injury and he came on as a 15th minute substitute in the fourth round against Crystal Palace, and again, five minutes after taking the field, he scored a goal to tie the game at 1-1 in the 20th minute to revitalize the team.

Hwang then joined Klinsmann’s squad for two matches against England, coming on as a substitute against Wales on Aug. 8 and starting against Saudi Arabia on Aug. 13. After the two A matches, O’Neill was able to confirm that there were no major issues with the player’s body.

The youngster scored the opening goal seven minutes into the match to prove his rise to prominence. Hwang is now tied for fourth in the Premier League in goals, behind Elling Holland (Man City – six), Evan Ferguson (Brighton) and Brian Mbemo (Brentford – four), along with senior international Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who exploded for a hat-trick at Burnley on Feb. 2.

Wolverhampton took a 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute of the first half thanks to a well-defended Hwang Hee-chan goal.바카라

Prior to the game, Hwang made headlines for his comments about Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp.

He was the first name to come to mind when Klopp said that the Reds would be on high alert against bottom-of-the-table Wolverhampton. “If you look at Wolverhampton’s squad, they don’t even have good (threatening) players like Hwang (Hee-Chan) or Sascha Kalajic in the starting lineup,” Klopp said.

Klopp’s statement was a clear indication that he was going to go all out against Wolverhampton, and he singled out Hwang as the reason why. Klopp’s comments proved to be spot on.

Meanwhile, Liverpool started with Brazil international Alisson Becker in goal and a back four of Andrew Robertson (Scotland), Joe Gomes (England), Joel Matip (Cameroon), and Jael Kwansa (England) from left to right. The center backs are Curtis Jones (England), Alexis McAllister (England), and Dominic Soboszlai (Hungary). Diogo Jota (Portugal), Cody Hakpo (Netherlands), and Mohamed Salah (Egypt) completed the back three.

Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo, who joined Liverpool this summer, started the game against Wolverhampton from the bench. Liverpool’s Uruguayan forward Darwin Nunes also started from the bench.

Gangwon defeats Jeonbuk in extreme underwater battle…Incheon and Pohang also win

Jeonbuk’s 5-match winless streak snapped…Incheon, Jeju win 2-1 in theater
‘Zeca multi-goal’ Pohang defeats Suwon FC to remain unbeaten in 9 matches

By Yunghyun Nam Reporter = Professional soccer’s K League 1 Gangwon FC earned a win against Jeonbuk in a match that was played amid heavy rains that made normal play difficult. Incheon United defeated Jeju United with a late stoppage-time winner.

Gangwon won 3-1 away to Jeonbuk Hyundai in the 30th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Saturday.

It was Gangwon’s first win in four games since beating Ulsan Hyundai on March 12. The win lifted Gangwon out of last place. With 24 points (4W, 12D, 14L), Gangwon leapfrogged Suwon Samseong, who did not play, to 11th place in the league.

Jeonbuk fell into a five-match winless streak (three draws and two losses). Jeonbuk remained fifth in the league with 43 points (12W, 7D, 10L).

Jeonbuk scored the first goal in the fifth minute. Han Gyo-won was tripped up by Lee Ji-sol while dribbling. Gustavo took the kick and converted.

Gangwon turned the game around at the end of the first half.

In the 45th minute, Shin Min-woo dribbled forward and passed to Gabriel, who scored a clever turning shot to tie the game at 1-1. It was Gabriel’s first goal in the league.

In the second minute of first-half stoppage time, Yago sent a pass to Gallego, who finished strongly at the near post to make it 2-1. It was Gallego’s second goal of the season.

In the second half, under heavy rain, Kangwon made it 3-1 in the 30th minute. After receiving a space pass from Shin Min-woo, Kim Dae-won took a shot. The ball deflected off a defender’s foot and into the back of the net. It was Kim Dae-won’s second goal of the season.

Heavy rain continued throughout the second half, creating puddles on the field and making it difficult for the ball to roll properly.

Jeonbuk also had some bad luck in the final minutes of the game. Jeju’s Ryu Kwang-hyun committed a handball foul and was awarded a penalty kick, but the penalty was canceled after it was found that Jeonbuk had committed an offside foul beforehand. The game ended in a 3-1 victory for Gangwon.

At the same time, Incheon defeated Jeju 2-1 at the Incheon Football Stadium.

With 43 points (11W, 10D, 9L), Incheon moved from seventh to sixth place.

Jeju fell into a four-match winless streak (D1, L3). Jeju remained in ninth place in the league with 35 points (9W8D13L).

Incheon took the lead in the 29th minute. Kim Do-hyuk delivered a sharp pass to Lee Myung-joo, who rattled the net with an accurate shot. It was Lee’s second goal of the season.

Jeju equalized in the 22nd minute of the second half. Seo Jin-soo won a dribble in the Incheon zone and sent a penetrating pass to Kim Seung-seop. Kim wasted no time in slotting it home. It was Kim’s second goal of the season.

Incheon won 2-1 with a theater goal. In the third minute of second-half stoppage time, Hernandez scored his fifth goal of the season off a pass from Shin Shin-ho to end the game.

At the Pohang Steel Yard, the Pohang Steelers defeated Suwon FC 2-0 to stay in second place.메이저놀이터

Pohang, unbeaten in nine matches (5 wins, 4 draws), improved to 56 points (15 wins, 11 draws, 4 losses) and remained unbeaten in three matches against Suwon FC this season.

Zeca was the difference maker for Pohang. She scored multi-goals in the 28th and 44th minutes of the first half. With her ninth and 10th goals of the season, she moved up to fifth on the scoring list.

‘Last chance to play,’ veteran focuses on discipline as he prepares for fall baseball

Veteran infielder Seo Gun-chang is preparing for his last chance.

The 13th game of the season between LG and SSG will be held at Jamsil Stadium on the 16th. LG is leading the league, but has won two and lost three of its last five games. The previous day, they escaped a three-game losing streak with a victory over Hanwha with a Kang Woo-cold. They have a 5.5-game lead over second-place KT, but it’s too early to rest on their laurels.

LG Twins veteran infielder Seo Geon-chang joined the first team in September as part of the expanded roster.

Seo hasn’t performed well in the first team this season. In 35 games this year, he is batting just 2-for-9. At the beginning of the season, he was expected to be the starting second baseman by his old mentor Yoon Kyung-yup, but he didn’t even make the opening roster. Due to his erratic performance, he was released from the first team on May 19.

After being traded from Kiwoom to LG during the 2021 season, Seo Gun-chang was expected to solve LG’s second base woes, but he failed to do so.

He was supposed to declare free agency for the 2022 season but opted for a second chance at free agency due to his poor record. However, his performance did not improve last year. In his 22nd season, he played in 77 games, batting 2-for-2, with a slugging percentage of no more than 3 percent.

The desperate Seo opted for free agency this season. However, his performance plummeted further. Seo’s dominance at the plate, which saw him reach the 200-hit plateau for the first time in 2014 with 201 hits, is fading.

Born in 1989. At 34 years old, Seo doesn’t have many opportunities left.

He has one last chance to redeem himself, and he could be the last man standing for LG, which is trying to win the regular season and Korean Series for the first time in 29 years, since 1994. It would be a huge boost for LG if he can play as well as he has in a long time.메이저놀이터

In big games, the experience of a veteran is invaluable. For a team that hasn’t won a championship in over 30 years, experience is the biggest concern.
