Pappas is playing for Greece at the 2023 European Baseball Championship held in the Czech Republic. He was given uniform number 8, and listed catcher and first base as his positions. He was also included in the coaching staff. He is in the game as first base coach. 

Greece, in Group A of the group stage, clashed with Spain, the Czech Republic, and Austria in turn. On the 25th (Korean time), they lost 1-14 to Spain in the first match of the group stage, and lost 0-14 to the home team Czech Republic on the 26th. They realized their limitations as they lost heavily to Spain and the Czech Republic, which are considered strong teams in Europe. On the 27th, he showed his fighting spirit and achieved his first win. They won 11-6 against Austria. Pappas did not play in all three games.

Pappas, who is of Greek descent, retired after playing in the minor leagues after leaving St. Louis and entered the path of a leader. While working as a coach, he was called up to the Greek national team ahead of the 2004 Athens Olympics. Afterwards, he served as a baseball academy and professional team coach in the United States, and was included in the Greek national team for the 2023 European Championships.

Magic number 6’ LG, simulation results show 100% victory 

No Comments

LG, the leader in professional baseball, reached the 80-win milestone and reduced its magic number for winning to 6.

LG defeated second-place KT in a consecutive professional baseball home game (double header) held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 27th.먹튀검증

LG, which won 4-0 in the first game, won 3-0 in the second game and recorded a season record of 80 wins, 2 draws, and 48 losses (winning rate of 0.625).

It has been 29 years since LG became the first professional baseball team to record 80 wins in a season since 1994, when it won the pennant race and Korean Series championship at the same time.

In the history of professional baseball, only one team, SK (now SSG) in 2019, was the first team to reach 80 wins in a season but fail to win the regular season.

At the time, SK had maintained first place since May 30, but on the final day of the season, Doosan tied with 88 wins, 1 draw, and 55 losses (winning percentage 0.615), and was pushed back to 7 wins and 9 losses against the team, and had to give up the regular league championship.

Coincidentally, the SK head coach at the time was Yeom Kyung-yeop, who is currently in charge of LG.

However, the probability that Coach Yeom will make the same mistake at LG this year is close to zero.

At that time, as of August 31, when SK recorded 80 wins (1 draw, 45 losses), it had to win 16 of the remaining 18 games (88.9%) to secure the championship on its own.

On the other hand, this year, if LG wins only 6 of the remaining 14 games (42.9%), the rankings cannot be overturned even if KT (10 games) and NC (16 games) win all future games.

In fact,, which predicts the final rankings of the season through Monte Carlo simulation, updated LG’s probability of advancing directly to this year’s Korean Series to 100%.

In 2019, even when SK recorded its 80th win of the season, the probability of going directly to the Korean Series remained at 81.8%.

Coach Yeom said after the game, “These were the two most important games today, and I would like to praise our players for their concentration.”

On this day, double headers were held in Munhak, Changwon, and Daejeon.

In Munhak, where 5th place SSG faced 4th place Doosan, the first game ended in a 7-7 draw and the second game ended with SSG’s 6-3 win.

SSG was trailing 6-7 with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th inning of Game 1, but Han Yu-seom (34) hit a 1-run home run to tie the game, and they were able to end the day undefeated.

SSG closing pitcher Seo Jin-yong (31) added a save in the second game, becoming the 10,000th saver in professional baseball history.

In Changwon, the home team NC first won 7-0 in the first game, and then KIA won 6-1 in the second game.

NC Koo Chang-mo (27), who was left off the final roster of the Hangzhou Asian Games due to an injury, took the mound as the team’s second pitcher in the first game, but felt pain while pitching in the top of the 8th inning and left the mound, and was eventually diagnosed with a recurrence of the injury.

On the other hand, KIA Lee Ui-ri (21), who was also unable to go to the Hangzhou Asian Games due to a blister, became the starting pitcher in the second game and recorded 3 hits and no runs in 7 innings, earning her 11th win of the season.

In Daejeon, visiting team Samsung first won 11-3 in the first game, and then Hanwha recorded a 4-0 win in the second game.

With a 5-point big inning without Na Seong-beom and Choi Hyeong-woo, a strong all-out effort from the popular starter, and an all-out effort from the bullpen, KIA saved 50% and negated Peddy’s 20 wins .

The KIA Tigers overcame the absence of two key hitters and defeated the league’s strongest ace’s challenge for 20 wins.카지노사이트

KIA won 6-4 against NC Dinos in the regular season of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at NC Park in Changwon on the 26th. With this, KIA overcame the slump of 1 win and 9 losses in the last 10 games. They also escaped their second consecutive loss. The season’s record of 62 wins, 61 losses, and 2 draws prevented the team’s winning percentage from collapsing to .500. 

NC remained at 68 wins, 56 losses, and 2 draws. We tried to chase down 2nd place KT and shake off 4th place Doosan, but it wasn’t easy.

For KIA, Lee Chang-jin (right fielder), Ko Jong-wook (designated hitter), Kim Do-young (third baseman), Socrates (center fielder), Kim Seon-bin (second baseman), Lee Woo-sung (left fielder), Byun Woo-hyuk (first baseman), Kim Tae-gun (catcher), and Park Chan-ho (shortstop) were named to the starting lineup. . It was a lineup that clearly showed the absence of Choi Hyung-woo and Na Seong-beom from their season outs. 

For NC, Eric Peddy, who is trying to achieve 20 wins, is the starting pitcher. The starting lineup consisted of Son Ah-seop (designated hitter), Park Min-woo (second baseman), Park Gun-woo (right fielder), Martin (center fielder), Kwon Hee-dong (left fielder), Oh Young-soo (first baseman), Seo Ho-cheol (third baseman), An Jung-yeol (catcher), and Kim Han-byeol (second baseman). Seo Ho-cheol, who hit a head shot against Doosan on the 24th, started today without having his entry canceled despite being diagnosed with a fractured nose bone. It was a starting appearance with fighting spirit.

It was Peddy who had his worst pitching performance of the season, allowing 8 hits, 3 walks, 3 strikeouts, and 7 runs in 3 innings against Gwangju KIA on the 31st of last month. Peddie must have been burning with revenge. And if he wins on this day, he could become the 22nd pitcher in KBO League history to win 20 games. In addition, the NC club was able to break the record for the most wins in a season (19 wins). Eric Hacker in 2015 and Drew Luchinski in 2020 recorded 19 wins.

Pedi regained his overwhelming majesty as always. After allowing 7 runs against KIA, he allowed 1 earned run and struck out 32 in 21⅓ innings. He started the first inning by striking out Lee Chang-jin with a grounder to third base and striking out Ko Jong-wook and Kim Do-young in succession. In the second inning, Socrates hit a fly ball to left field, Kim Sun-bin hit a ground ball to second base, and Lee Woo-seong hit a looking strikeout. In the third inning, Byun Woo-hyuk and Kim Tae-gun struck out in succession, and Park Chan-ho was caught by a grounder to shortstop. 3 perfect innings. However, starting from the 4th episode, Peddie’s luck ran out. And he allowed an unexpected blow.

KIA’s batting lineup was blocked by Peddie, but after one out in the 4th inning, Jong-wook Ko broke the ice by hitting a double to left-center field. He even had a chance to score with his first hit. In the ensuing 1 out, 2nd base, Kim Do-young’s missed ball landed in front of the center fielder, creating an opportunity with 1 out, 1st and 3rd base. Afterwards, Socrates hit a ground ball that missed, and went towards the first baseman, resulting in a fielder’s choice and scoring the first run. After breaking the perfect streak, he even succeeded in scoring right away. Although Kim Sun-bin retired with a double play in the ensuing opportunity with one out and runners on first and third base. However, it was meaningful to score the first run against the league’s best pitcher, Peddie.

On the mound, in a situation where the game had to be played in a double header schedule, Kim Geon-guk, who stepped in as a substitute starter, gave his all. He was recording an average of 8.31 (8 earned runs in 8⅔ innings) without a win in 4 games (3 starts) this season. After being released from Lotte in 2021, Kim Geon-guk, who had a chance to play again after a year of being an outcast, fought with all his might in the matchup with Peddie on this day.

They allowed a heavy hit to leadoff hitter Son A-seop in the first inning, but second baseman Min-woo Park was hit by a double play to get the game through the first inning. In the second inning, with two outs, Oh Young-soo hit a right-handed hit, but he guided Seo Ho-cheol to a ground ball to shortstop to get the game through the second inning. The third inning was a three-way inning. 

In the top of the 4th inning, the team scored the first run against Peddie. However, Kim Geon-guk immediately allowed the score to be tied. In the bottom of the 4th inning, leadoff hitter Park Min-woo hit a double, and then Park Geon-woo allowed a timely double to center field, immediately tying the score at 1-1. However, the team continued to block second base with no outs without allowing any additional runs. After completing his duties with 2 outs in the 5th inning, he came down from the mound. 4⅔ innings, 5 hits, 2 strikeouts, 1 run, 71 pitches. Before the game, coach Kim Jong-guk said, “It is not easy to have a bullpen day because there is a double header. “I think it will be of great help to the team if the replacement starters last at least four innings.” Kim Kun-guk gave his best effort to perfectly meet the expectations of the head coach.

NC Peddie went down after pitching 6 innings, allowing 3 hits, no balls, 4 walks, 8 strikeouts, and 1 run. The number of pitches is 94. It was powerful, but KIA’s batting lineup was stretched with their pedi in their mouths, preventing them from advancing until the 7th inning. No decision. When Peddy went down in the 7th inning, the KIA batting line responded immediately. NC had Ryu Jin-wook on the mound as the second pitcher.

KIA tapped Ryu Jin-wook. Leadoff hitter Socrates’ left-handed hit and Kim Seon-bin’s right-handed hit gave them a chance to reach first and third base with no outs. And Lee Woo-sung’s heavy, timely hit gave them a 2-1 lead again. Pinch hitter Park Jeong-woo’s sending bunt created an opportunity with one out and 2nd and 3rd bases, and Kim Tae-gun’s timely hit in the middle of the game added one more point. Opportunities continued. With one out and runners on 1st and 3rd base, Chan-Ho Park hit a timely hit to right. Lee Chang-jin’s ground ball to third base led to a chance for runners on second and third base with two outs, and Ko Jong-wook’s ground ball to second base resulted in a throw error to first base, allowing two runners to hit home. Park Min-woo had to hang his head. He scored 5 points in the 7th inning alone, widening the lead to 6-1.

KIA followed in Kim Geon-guk’s footsteps and mobilized all of their bullpens. Kim Dae-yu (⅔ inning), Jang Hyun-sik (1 inning), Lee Jun-young (⅓ inning), Lim Ki-young (⅓ inning), etc. were brought in. We did our best to protect the lead. However, NC counterattacked late. In the bottom of the 7th inning, NC’s leadoff hitter Martin kicked up Jang Hyun-sik’s 146km fastball and fired a superior solo shot. 15th home run of the season. 

And Seo Ho-cheol, who appeared in a situation with no runners on 2 outs, hit Im Ki-young’s 128km slider and fired a solo shot to the left. He hit a home run in two consecutive games following the Doosan game on the 24th, when he suffered a fractured nose after being hit by a headshot. Season No. 4. It caught up to 3-6. 

From 9:08 to 18 minutes before the top of the 8th inning, the game was halted due to heavy rain for a while. In the bottom of the 8th inning, NC created an opportunity when leadoff hitter Kim Han-byeol reached base with a right-handed hit after 14 pitches. However, KIA mobilized Jeon Sang-hyun and Jeong Hae-young to block NC’s pursuit.

NC took the opportunity to reach 2nd and 3rd base with no outs against Jeong Hae-young in the 9th inning with Kwon Hee-dong’s single to left and Oh Young-soo’s double to left-center. However, Park Dae-on’s grounder to second base only resulted in one point. On this day, KIA secured victory by mobilizing six bullpens.

‘11 wins in the first half → Trouble in the second half’ The reason why Yeom Gal-ryang is adamant that last year’s mistakes will not be repeated

No Comments

LG foreign pitcher Plutko, a troublemaker in the second half of the season, has begun preparations for a full-fledged comeback. Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop announced that he would unconditionally throw at least once during the regular season and go to fall baseball.스포츠토토

Plutko was effectively the ace during the first half of the season. This is because first starter Casey Kelly continued to perform poorly. However, Plutko appeared in 17 games without missing the starting rotation, recording 11 wins, 1 loss, and an ERA of 2.21 in 102 innings. 2nd place in most wins in the first half, 3rd place in ERA.

In particular, he pitched well and had good luck, recording 10 consecutive wins in 15 games until June 24th. Plutko suffered his first loss of the season against KIA on July 1, allowing 5 runs in 4 innings, and entered the All-Star break with 1 win and 2 losses in the next 5 games.

But things didn’t go well for him in the second half of the season. On July 25th, his first appearance in the second half of the season, against KT, he had a quality start, allowing 3 runs in 6 innings, but became the losing pitcher. He was tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of his second appearance in the second half of the season. It was an emergency for LG. Fortunately, they filled Plutco’s void by recruiting starting pitcher Won-Tae Choi through a trade with Kiwoom.

After regaining his health and returning, Plutko pitched the next three games. He allowed 4 runs (loss) in 5⅓ innings against Samsung on August 15th, 1 run in 6 innings against SSG on the 20th, and 1 run in 4 innings against NC on the 26th. In the game against NC, which was his last appearance, he was replaced after complaining of discomfort in his thigh, and a hospital examination revealed that he had a bruised left pelvic bone. At the time of his injury, he was expected to recover in four to five weeks.

Now a month has passed. The timing of return must be announced. However, Plutco rarely gave a ‘YES’ signal.

Since last year, Plutko has been cautious about his physical condition. If she didn’t feel the least bit bad, she wouldn’t proceed. It’s frustrating for LG because they’re being too cautious. I understand the desire to prevent the injury from recurring, but Plutko did not move even though he gave a sign that he was okay during the training part.

This was the case last year as well, so this year we came out a little stronger.

Plutco ended the season early last year due to symptoms of phlegm at the end of the regular season. And at the same time as his rehabilitation, he prepared for fall baseball. He immediately started in the second game of the playoffs without any actual review, and he collapsed after giving up 6 runs (4 earned) in 1⅔ innings.

Because I have this experience, I don’t want to follow the same path this year.

Director Yeom Kyeong-yeop said, “First of all, we talked about 2 days, but we have to see how it progresses. We put pressure like that (2 days). But will it be 2 days? It will be delayed a bit. We put pressure on the earliest possible day. While preparing, I felt the same way. “You have to see it,” he said.

LG must play a 7-game series starting with a double header on the 27th. If Plutco does not perform as scheduled on October 2nd, a replacement must be appointed. If that happens, Lee Ji-gang will come in. Here, Director Yeom Kyung-yeop has another concern. He is also considering bringing in Kim Yun-sik after a four-day rest.

In any case, Plutko is guaranteed to pitch once during the regular season. Even if it’s not 2 days.

Coach Yeom said, “Plutko will throw once or twice. He has to pitch once during the season to enter the postseason. I have to check it so I can figure out what he’s lacking. Then, I can make up for it during the remaining time.” .

He continued, “We will definitely do the verification work. If we go into the postseason without that work, I will be anxious. Practice games and regular season games are different. There must be time to look at the throws and make a judgment.”

The presence of foreign pitchers is significant for LG, which is aiming to win the Korean Series. That is why Plutko must return to perfect physical condition. It could be the final puzzle to win.

I can see the class of a major leaguer… 6G ERA 1.80, SSG still has starters with some strength left in them

No Comments

 Roenis Elias (35, SSG) is a veteran with quite a long history in the major league. He is from Cuba and debuted in the major league in Seattle in 2014, winning 10 games (12 losses). He continued in 2015, where he recorded 5 wins in 22 games (20 as a starter).카지노사이트

No matter how long ago it was, it is not easy to find a title of 10 wins in the major league among foreign pitchers coming to the KBO League. Elias appeared in 133 games (54 as a starter) in his major league career, amassing a record of 22 wins, 24 losses, and an ERA of 3.96. But he was a player in his mid-30s, and the downturn of his career was clear. At that time, he was on the radar of SSG, which was looking for a foreign player to replace Annie Romero.

Expectations were vague. Still, expectations that he was an experienced player in the major leagues and pessimism that he was on the decline coexisted. In fact, there were many problems at the beginning of his joining. As a left-handed pitcher, he had the ability to throw 150 kilometers per hour. He was a pitcher who knew how to throw strikes. At least he wasn’t a pitcher who played ‘ball ball ball ball’.

However, his breaking ball was lacking. The difference in velocity between his fastball and changeup was small. The changeup was much faster than most other pitchers’ sliders. Other breaking balls were also lacking here. He was all fast. All the batters had to do was adjust the timing of the fastball. As a result, he was particularly vulnerable to right-handed batters. He was honest about the course and the type of pitch.

SSG coach Kim Won-hyung gave two orders. First, he ordered that there be a little more difference in velocity between fastballs and changeups. And I wish he would throw curveballs or other pitches more aggressively. However, there were many cases where he struggled because he could not easily digest the order. He was never just a stuck player, but it wasn’t easy for him to change everything at once.

However, Elias has now become the player who carries the fate of SSG. This is because he is in the best condition among the recent starting lineup and is also the player with the most strength remaining.

Looking at recent game results, Elias is throwing a very powerful ball. To put it simply, the evaluation is ‘I got a feel for it.’ Fastball velocity has become faster. It is thrown over 150km. Considering that he is a left-hander, he is powerful. It also targets the zone. Here, the proportion of curves continues to increase. Reduce the proportion of changeups and attack opposing batters with powerful fastballs and curveballs.

Elias has pitched 40 innings in his last six appearances and is continuing to pitch with an ERA of 1.80. Of his six appearances, he has only had one game in which he failed to last six innings, and only once has he allowed more than three runs. In his previous two appearances, against Doosan on the 14th, he pitched 8 scoreless innings, and in the match against LG on the 21st, he pitched 7 innings, allowing 1 hit and no runs, giving a great boost to the team. Currently, Guwi is the most reliable starter in the team.

Manager Kim Won-hyung, who is not very generous in evaluating pitchers, also gives a thumbs up to Elias’ recent pitching. Coach Kim said that Elias basically knows how to throw strikes, and by increasing the proportion of curves, he has become more difficult as an opposing hitter. Elias underwent elbow surgery in 2021, and over the course of two years, he is said to have gradually gained elasticity and improved sensation.

In any case, we must continue the way we are now until the end. It’s because of SSG’s team situation. SSG has been showing a clear decline in performance since August. Neither one is the problem. Every aspect is a problem. First of all, in this situation, we need to look at the selection first. The most ideal way is for the starters to be alive to plan a counterattack, win, and in that win, to calm the team spirit, take a breather, and revive the game.

Elias’s importance grew as his foreign pitcher, Kirk McCarty, was out for more than two weeks due to a right oblique muscle injury. If even Elias collapses, all future plans of SSG will inevitably collapse. After resting for four days, Elias takes the mound in an important game against Doosan in Incheon on the 26th and takes on the burden of one more game. As Elias also has a contract renewal, his remaining appearances are bound to be important.

‘Is the main stadium really not going to work?’ KBO, LG, Doosan vs. Dongsangyimong of Seoul City, prepare a solution for Jamsil Stadium’s 6-year gap

No Comments

 The Seoul Metropolitan Government, the KBO, and each club are forming a consultative body to resolve the controversy that arose over the replacement stadium that the LG Twins and Doosan Bears will use during the construction of the Jamsil Dome Stadium.스포츠토토

On the 18th, the Seoul Metropolitan Government unveiled its plan to create a world-class ‘Sports and MICE Complex’, including the reconstruction of Jamsil Stadium, currently used as the home stadium by LG and Doosan. Jamsil Stadium will be dismantled after the end of the KBO League season in 2025, and a 30,000-seat dome stadium will be built with the goal of opening in 2032. 

Jamsil Stadium is one of the representative stadiums that symbolizes Korean professional baseball. Along with Daejeon Hanwha Life Eagles Park, it is a stadium that has been used as the home stadium of a professional team from the first year of professional baseball (1982) to the present. It is located in the capital city of Seoul, and has a vast size that is not at all inferior to major league stadiums. It is the only stadium with two professional teams. There are many attractive factors, including the fact that it is also used as a home stadium. 

However, since it is a stadium that has been used since the first years of professional baseball, there was also an evaluation that the stadium facilities were outdated compared to other newly built stadiums. In this situation, as the Seoul Metropolitan Government created a ‘Sports and MICE Complex’ in the Jamsil area, Jamsil Stadium also had the opportunity to be reborn as a 30,000-seat dome stadium. The construction cost is expected to be approximately 500 billion won.

The problem is that there is no suitable stadium for LG and Doosan to use during the construction period scheduled from 2025 to 2031. KBO, LG, and Doosan wanted to use the Seoul Olympic Main Stadium, which was decided to survive only after remodeling in the ‘Sports and MICE Complex’ plan, as a replacement stadium, but Seoul City was reluctant due to air smoke issues and fan safety. expressed. 

The period during which LG and Doosan have to use a replacement stadium is a whopping six years, which is not short at all. The Seoul Metropolitan Government proposed using other stadiums located in the metropolitan area, such as Gocheok Sky Dome and Mokdong Stadium in Seoul, SSG Landers Field in Incheon, and KT Wiz Park in Suwon, as replacement stadiums, but realistically, it is difficult for LG and Doosan to accept this proposal. 

Gocheok Dome is already being used as Kiwoom’s home stadium. Even if one of LG and Doosan reaches an agreement to use Gocheok Dome, the other team still has the problem of having to find a stadium. In the case of Mokdong Stadium, the national amateur competition is currently being held, and night games are not being held in the afternoon due to excessive noise in the surrounding residential area. It is also a burden for LG and Doosan, which are based in Seoul, to leave Seoul and go to Incheon or Suwon. 

After the announcement of the Seoul Metropolitan Government’s Jamsil Dome Stadium plan, baseball fans welcomed the news of the construction of a dome stadium, but expressed doubts about the issue of replacement stadiums for LG and Doosan. This is because the current announcement by the Seoul Metropolitan Government is practically the same as having no alternative at all. 

Recognizing these problems, Seoul City announced on the 25th that it had agreed to form a consultative body to discuss issues related to Jamsil Stadium’s replacement stadium. This consultative body includes Seoul Metropolitan Government, KBO, LG, Doosan, and experts in the construction and safety fields. 

The most ideal alternative for KBO, LG, and Doosan is to use the remodeled Seoul Olympic Stadium as a replacement stadium and secure a passage connecting the Sports Complex Station on subway lines 2 and 9 to the Seoul Olympic Stadium. However, the Seoul Metropolitan Government is opposed to adopting this plan on the grounds that there are concerns about safety accidents due to limited entry and exit routes for spectators, and that the construction period could be delayed by up to a year or more, so it is expected that it will not be easy to reach an agreement.  

There are still many hurdles to overcome, but Seoul City’s recognition of the replacement stadium issue and the formation of a consultative body can be the first step in resolving the problem. Attention is being paid to whether Seoul City, KBO, LG, and Doosan can find an alternative that fans can accept.

Finished with 13 pitches in the 1st and 2nd innings… 4th complete game of the season – 2nd shutout, Yomiuri’s 23-year-old ace Dogo pitches 27 consecutive scoreless innings.

No Comments

He pitched a complete game again. Another shutout win.

Yomiuri Giants’ ace Shosei Dogo (23) posted his second shutout this season and third in his career. On the 24th, he started in an away game against the Yokohama Baystars and pitched well, allowing 6 hits and no runs in 9 innings. He faced 33 batters and threw 113 pitches, striking out 7 and allowing 2 walks. They achieved their 12th win in the 23rd game of the season.카지노사이트

Yomiuri won 6-0, with Dogo pitching without conceding a goal. It is a meaningful victory for 4th place Yomiuri. They narrowed the gap with 3rd place Yokohama to 2 games and expressed hope of escaping from Class B (4th to 6th place out of 6 teams). If you place 3rd, you will advance to the Climax Series (postseason).

We started off with brisk steps. The bottom of the first inning ended with 6 pitches, and the bottom of the second inning ended with 7 pitches.

In the bottom of the 3rd and 4th inning, runners came out in scoring position. In the bottom of the 3rd inning, with 2 outs and runners on second base, he hit No. 1 Daiki Sekine with a ground ball to second base. In the bottom of the 4th inning, with 1 out and runners on 1st and 2nd bases, No. 5 Toshido Miyazaki was guided to a ground ball to 3rd base, resulting in a double play. Miyazaki is a slugger who ranks first in batting in the Central League.

He finished the 5th, 6th, and 7th inning with three consecutive batters, and gave up one hit in the 8th inning, but gave up no runs. 93 pitches until the 8th inning

He pitched and took the mound in the 9th inning. He was hit by a heavy hit from leadoff hitter No. 2 Masayuki Kuwabara. A 148 km/h fastball was driven into the middle of the strike zone.

He struck out Sato in the third, before forcing out Maki in the fourth. With one out and runners on first and second base, the game ended with No. 5 Miyazaki hit by a grounder to second base and No. 6 Neftali hit by a fly ball to center field.

He continued his recent fearsome pitching.

Since the game against the Chunichi Dragons on September 8th, there have been 3 games and 27 innings in a row without giving up a run. In September, we faced Chunichi in two consecutive games. He pitched 10 scoreless innings in the game on the 8th and 8 innings on the 15th. The game against Chunichi on the 8th was held scoreless until the 10th overtime, but ended in a 0-0 draw in the 12th overtime. In this game, he threw a whopping 140 pitches.

Both complete games this season were against Yokohama. In the 9th inning against Yokohama on May 24th

Until then, he had allowed 5 hits and no runs without any walks. There are 4 complete games this year.

Yomiuri scored 6 runs with 9 hits, including 2 home runs by Hayato Sakamoto.

Ho-seong Lee took the mound in the Futures League Sangmu game held at Mungyeong Stadium in Gyeongbuk on the 23rd, and pitched 79 pitches in 5⅔ innings, allowing 2 hits, 4 walks, 2 walks, striking out 4, and giving up no runs.

58.2% with 46 strikes. He threw a combination of fastballs (133-143 km), sliders (124-129 km), change-ups (122-130 km), and curves (104-115 km).

He was perfect until the 5th inning, turning around 1.5-ranked top hitters. The only thing allowed on base was a heavy hit by Seong-ho Cheon in the fourth inning.

We faced a crisis in the bottom of the 6th inning when the score was 0-0. He gave up a walk to leadoff hitter Kim Jae-hyuk and then allowed a hit to Koo Bon-hyuk with one out. After two outs, Jo Se-jin walks, and the bases are loaded with two outs. He was replaced by Han Yeon-wook, and finished the inning without allowing a run.

Lee Ho-seong, who entered the opening lineup this season and had 15 days of first-team experience, is about to be called up for the second time.

Regarding Lee Ho-seong’s call-up on the 20th, Samsung coach Park Jin-man said, “We haven’t set a specific date, but we plan to raise it in late September or early October.” He added, “The Futures League schedule is set to include an eight-game series, including a double header with Lotte, in early October. “It’s being adjusted,” he explained. The possibility that this will be his last start before being called up cannot be ruled out.

He showed a stable appearance and raised hope ahead of a call-up at the end of the season.

Ho-seong Lee, who joined Samsung as the 8th pick in the second round after graduating from Incheon High School, is a player that Samsung is nurturing as a next-generation starting pitcher.

He pitched in three first-team games early in the season, allowing two runs in seven innings, with no wins or losses, and an ERA of 2.57. He has 6 Futures League games, 3 losses, 1 hold, and an ERA of 4.26.

The future of Samsung, whose strengths include stable breaking ball control and game management ability with good pitching form.

Ho-seong Lee, who increased his strength through systematic training after becoming a professional, said ahead of the season, “I feel that I have definitely improved compared to last year when I was in high school. I seem to have gained a little weight and gained muscle mass.” He added, “The rotation and weight of the ball are definitely different from what I felt last year. “I lost. Now I feel that the ball has power and is good,” he said.

As his strength increases and he gains experience, he is expected to perform as a stable starting pitcher.

What kind of hope will the first team show at the end of the season? Interest is growing.

The Korean big leaguer who had a sore butt, an ERA of 6.65 during the ordeal? NO, 11 wins and ‘I’m going to fall baseball’

No Comments

6.65 ERA in trials? I can see fall baseball.

Daein Dunning’s (29, Texas Rangers) September was definitely difficult. In the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Seattle Mariners held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, on the 23rd (Korean time), he allowed 4 hits, 2 strikeouts, and 2 walks in 5⅓ innings.카지노사이트

Although he did not get a quality start, it is positive that he was on the mound until the 6th inning with 16 outs. Dunning’s biggest advantage this season is that he doesn’t run away and plays aggressively. Strike actively. Although you get hit, there are also quite a few instances where you get hit.

However, if the command of the sinker, cutter, slider, ultra-slow curve, and changeup in the low 90s is slightly shaky, bad results will occur. This is not a style that overwhelms batters with speed. He’s not the type of person who is good at borderline pitching. Therefore, it must be considered that there is some risk.

On this day, after receiving a generous 8 points through the 5th inning, the team actually faltered in the 6th inning. He threw a cutter down the middle to JP Crawford and got an infield hit. With no outs on first and second base, he used a change-up to Carl Rowley and was hit by a three-run gun in right-center. Follow-up pitcher Chris Stratton sent home the runner left by Dunning, resulting in 4 earned runs.

In the end, it was a good pitch except for one three-run shot. With the help of the batting line, he earned his 11th win of the season. September’s performance was 2 wins in 4 games and an ERA of 6.65, but it was a harvest season with the first double-digit multiplier in his career. 11 wins, 6 losses, 3.88 ERA in 33 games. Few people expected that the pitcher who replaced Jacob deGrom in the starting rotation would win 11 games.

Texas’ upward trend continued even after a four-game sweep against the Toronto Blue Jays, taking first place in the American League West Division. With 85 wins and 68 losses, they are 0.5 games ahead of the second-place Houston Astros. Even in the wild card race, it maintains second place in winning percentage along with TorontoIf this continues, Dunning may be able to appear in the postseason for the first time in three years since 2020. Texas has solid cards in Max Scherzer and Nathan Eovaldi. Andrew Heaney, Martin Perez. There is also John Gray, etc. Although it is unclear whether he will start in the postseason, there is a possibility that he will step on the mound through the bullpen.

There is no native ace with 11 wins, but Doosan is a super emergency… Alcantara gets hit on the right palm by a batted ball and gets hit

No Comments

 The Doosan Bears are in an emergency situation. Foreign ace Raul Alcantara was hit on the right hand by a hard hit and was kicked.스포츠토토

Doosan Alcantara started as a starter in the game against NC Dinos held at NC Park in Changwon on the 23rd. He pitched perfectly and allowed no runs through five innings until he was hit by a double by Kwon Hee-dong with one out in the fifth inning.

However, an unfortunate situation occurred in episode 6. After one out in the 6th inning, Son Ah-seop was hit on a double and Kim Seong-wook was hit on a bases-loaded base, putting the team in danger of one out and runners on first and second base. And with Park Min-woo and 2 strikes, the 3rd pitch was hit hard. This hit went over Alcantara’s head.

However, Alcantara raised both hands to block the hit, and the strike ball hit Alcantara’s right hand and was deflected. He even made a follow-up move, but after the ball was declared dead, Alcantara sat down, showing pain in his right hand.

The trainer came running out and he was immediately replaced. Doosan even faced the crisis of bases loaded with one out as their ace suffered an unexpected injury. Youngha Lee was brought in to replace Alcantara. 

Currently, Doosan has a void as native ace Kwak Bin, who won 11 games in the starting lineup, was selected to the Hangzhou Asian Games national team. However, we faced an emergency situation in which even Alcantara could easily escape.

A Doosan official said, “Doosan Alcantara was replaced after a batted ball hit his right palm. He is scheduled to be taken to the hospital for a checkup.”

First, Doosan overcame the crisis when Lee Young-ha hit Martin with a foul fly to first base and Kwon Hee-dong with a straight hit to center field with the bases loaded and one out. The 0-0 situation continues.
