LG’s 2nd Game Come from Behind Victory

LG’s 2nd Game Come from Behind Victory… The Starters Gave Up 4 Runs in ⅓ Innings, and the Bullpen Gave up 8 ⅓ Innings of No Runs

LG, 0-4 → 5-4 come-from-behind win thanks to bullpen power, despite early opposition to starter Choi Won-tae

Professional baseball’s LG Twins suffered heavy defeat as starting pitcher Choi Won-tae collapsed in the first inning.

Choi Won-tae’s report card includes 20 pitches, 2 hits, 2 walks, and 4 runs in ⅓ innings. 카지노사이트위키

However, LG had a bullpen that was like a ‘fountain that never runs dry.’

Thanks to the bullpen’s remaining 8 ⅓ innings of scoreless innings,

they were able to turn the game from 0-4 to 5-4 and bring the Korean Series back to square one with 1 win and 1 loss.

Choi Won-tae

In Game 2 of the 2023 KBO Korean Series against KT Wiz held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 8th,

LG had no choice but to use the mound as a ‘bullpen day’ due to starting pitcher Choi Won-tae’s unexpected sluggish performance.

If the LG bullpen had not been strong, the LG bench would not have been able to make the bold choice of removing the starting pitcher with one out in the first inning.

As a result, leaving out Choi Won-tae was an excellent choice.

Lee Jeong-yong, who took the mound first,

cooled the already heated KT lineup with 3 hits, 1 strikeout, and no runs in 1⅔ innings.

Lee Jeong-yong gave up 2 RBIs and a timely hit to Bae Jeong-dae,

perhaps because he suddenly took the mound in the 1st inning with one out and 2nd and 3rd bases,

but he completed his mission after finishing the 2nd inning.

Jung Woo-young, who took the mound at the start of the 3rd inning, pitched 1⅓ innings,

allowing 2 hits and no runs, and Kim Jin-seong, who followed him,

continued the momentum with ⅔ innings of no runs.

LG Twins

Baek Seung-hyun, who appeared on the mound in the 5th inning,

was shaken with 1 hit and 1 walk in ⅔ innings, but Yoo Young-chan,

who came on as a relief pitcher with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases,

pitched the brightest pitch out of the bullpen.

Yoo Young-chan, who is new to the postseason stage,

was responsible for 7 outs alone with 2 strikeouts and no runs in 2⅓ innings.

While Yoo Young-chan held on on the mound, LG batters followed suit one by one, putting pressure on KT.

Austin Dean’s timely hit in the 3rd inning, Oh Ji-hwan’s 1-run home run in the 6th inning, and Kim Hyun-soo’s double in the 7th inning gave them 1 run each to reach 3-4.

And when Ham Deok-ju, who came on the mound in the top of the 8th inning, set up three KT batters,

LG turned the game around with Park Dong-won’s 2-run home run in the bottom of the 8th inning.

To protect their lead of 5-4, LG sent Go Woo-seok,

the losing pitcher from Game 1 the previous day, into the 9th inning.

Go Woo-seok neatly handled the 9th inning with a three-way penalty, preserving LG’s victory.

Kim’s first year was a success… even if he didn’t win the unified championship

Head coach Kim Joo-sung wrapped up his first season as a full-time head coach.

The Wonju DB Promy lost 63-80 to the Busan KCC Aegis in the fourth round of the 2023-2024 Jeonggwanjang Professional Basketball League quarterfinals playoffs at the Busan Sajik Gymnasium on Nov. 21.

DB dominated throughout the regular season, but they were stopped by KCC in the quarterfinals, and their challenge for the overall championship was thwarted by the loss.

That was the end of Kim Joo-sung’s first year as head coach. Kim, who served as acting head coach midway through last season, signed a full-time coaching contract with DB ahead of this season, 토토사이트 추천 and the club has been properly anchored.

Despite failing to win the coveted title, there was plenty to be encouraged about in the first year of the Wonju basketball legend’s tenure. He has brought DB back to the top of the table after a disappointing run in recent years.

Kim, who teamed up with coaches Han Sang-min and Lee Kwang-jae, made moves to improve the team’s constitution in the offseason. The No. 1 pick, Derek Lawson, ended the foreign player atrocities and captain Kang Sang-jae took on increased responsibilities and had the best season of his career. His pre-season efforts to avoid the ankle injury that had been plaguing him paid off.

While the team continued its acidic image with a triple-post lineup of Kim Jong-kyu, Kang Sang-jae, and Dedrick Lawson, it also utilized Park In-woong, Choi Seung-wook, Kim Young-hyun, and Min-su Min at the right time to create a lineup that was full of activity. The team averaged 89.9 points per game, thanks to its high-powered offense and potent transition game.

Despite the ups and downs, DB’s regular season was impressive, with Kim securing the top spot for the first time since the 2019-2020 season ended early due to COVID-19.

Kim won the coach of the year award after winning the regular season wire-to-wire. However, he was unable to break through the playoff barrier. In a head-to-head matchup between Jeon Chang-jin and Sajeji, who had collaborated on multiple championships in the past, Kim lost in the best-of-four playoffs, ending his season.

When asked about his plans for next season after Game 4, Kim said, “I’m thinking about rebuilding. I’m thinking about developing a lot of good players and going younger. The word ‘rebuilding’ is something that came to my mind right now, and there is nothing definite.”

It remains to be seen whether Kim is referring to a complete overhaul or a change in tactical direction while keeping the same roster composition. Although he mentioned the word “rebuilding,” it’s possible that it’s just a fleeting thought, and that he’ll keep the current composition and system in place. It’s something to think about during the break and off-season.

The season is over, but Kim has another important period ahead of him. DB will have Kim Jong-kyu, Kang Sang-jae, and Choi Seung-wook become free agents.

How they spend their free agents will change the direction of the team. The team will also have to think about foreign players once the contract of domestic MVP Lee Sun Albano expires. They’ll also need to sort out the status of Doo Kyung-min, who finished the season without a place in the squad. A successful transfer window will give the team a major boost in their bid to repeat as champions.

Despite the sports myth that star players don’t make good managers, Kim has had a successful first season in charge. The playoff loss was also a great asset and experience for him. What will be the outcome of Kim’s second season as head coach?

‘First time ever for a No. 5 team,’ KCC catches No. 1 DB in regular season to advance to championship game

Busan KCC defeated Wonju DB, the No. 1 team in the regular season, to advance to the championship game for the first time as the No. 5 team in the regular season.

KCC defeated DB 80-63 at home in the fourth round of the 2023-2024 Jungkwanjang Professional Basketball League quarterfinals playoffs (PO) at Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on Nov. 21.

With a 3-1 series lead in the best-of-five best-of-three PO, KCC advanced to the championship game for the third time in three years and the 11th time in its history since the 2020-2021 season (runner-up). Notably, KCC also became the first team from the fifth-ranked team in the regular season to reach the championship.

KCC, dubbed the “Super Team” for its spectacular lineup of Heo Woong, Choi Jun-yong, Ragan-ah, Song Kyo-chang, and Lee Seung-hyun, defeated Seoul SK in three straight games in the best-of-six PO, and swept the regular season’s No. 1 DB 스포츠토토존 in the best-of-four PO.

With the victory, KCC head coach Jeon Chang-jin surpassed 50 career PO wins (43). Jeon is second on the all-time wins list behind former Ulsan Hyundai Mobis coach Yoo Jae-hak (58 wins and 50 losses).

KCC will play for its sixth championship in 13 years and first since the 2010-2011 season in the championship match on Nov. 27.

The other best-of-four PO, which will determine KCC’s opponent, is still in progress, with regular-season runner-up Changwon LG leading third-place Suwon KT by two games to one heading into Game 4 on Dec. 22.

DB advanced directly to the best-of-four PO with a solid performance from Lee Sun Albano and Didrik Lawson, who were named the regular season’s domestic and international Most Valuable Player (MVP), as well as Kang Sang-jae and Kim Jong-kyu, but ended the season without reaching the championship game.

The first quarter belonged to KCC’s Laguna. After blocking DB Kim Young-hyun’s two-point attempt with 1:44 left in the quarter when KCC led 17-15, Lagunia widened the gap with a jump shot and then roared back with a block of Kim Jong-kyu’s shot with 42.5 seconds left.

Lagana’s block also came on Dedrick Lawson’s three-point attempt just before the end of the first quarter, giving KCC a 21-15 lead.

In the second quarter, Alize DeShawn Johnson, who came in for Lagana midway through the period, was hot. Johnson scored 10 points, more than half of her team-high 17 points in the second quarter, including back-to-back three-pointers to make it 29-24 with 4:25 left in the quarter and 32-26 with 3:48 left, to help KCC take a 38-32 lead into halftime.

After DB was held scoreless for the first four minutes of the second half, KCC scored 10 unanswered points, including three-pointers from Ragan and Choi, to take a 48-32 lead.

At the end of the third quarter, KCC led 55-44. DB, which had been held to eight and seven points by the regular season’s domestic and international MVPs Lee Sun Albano and Dedrick Lawson, respectively, through the third quarter, found itself in a more difficult situation when one of its pillars, Kim Jong-kyu, fouled out with five fouls with over eight minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Lawson and Albano’s outside shooting started to fizzle out, but KCC, led by Heo Woong’s performance, refused to lose momentum and drove a wedge with a three-pointer from Lagana that made it 75-61 with 1:36 left in regulation.

Lagunia finished with 17 points and 17 rebounds, including three 3-pointers, to record his first double-double in all four PO games and added six blocked shots on the night to lead the way to the championship.

Song Kyo-chang and Heo Woong added 14 points, while Choi Jun-yong and Johnson chipped in 10 points each to round out the ‘Super Team’.

At DB, Lawson had 16 points and eight rebounds, while Albano added 14 points and five rebounds.

Yago completed his hat trick eight minutes into the second half. He finished off a cross from Hwang Mungi down the right flank with a non-stop right-footed shot from the front of the arc.

Incheon had to settle for a late goal from Mugosa in the 34th minute to avoid defeat.

The match between Daegu FC and Daejeon Hana Citizens at DGB Park in Daegu ended in a goalless draw.

Daegu made a change on Sept. 19 when Choi Won-kwon resigned as head coach due to poor performance and was replaced by Chung Sun-ho, but the team was unable to get a win at Anbang. After three consecutive draws, Daegu is in 10th place with a record of 1W, 4D, 3L (7 points).

Daejeon also failed to move out of the bottom 12 with 1-3-4 (6 points) after three consecutive games without a win (one draw and two losses).

The game was a frustrating affair as the two teams were unable to open up each other’s defense. In the second half of stoppage time, Daejeon‘s Kim Seung-dae found the back of the net, but the goal was disallowed due to offside.

In the end, the teams played to a 0-0 draw.

Jianyun FC keeps pace at the top with 7-0 win over STVFC

Seoul Yongsan-gu’s Gunyung FC (GUNYUNG FC) has kicked off the title race with a win over Seoul Jungnang-gu’s STV FC (STVFC).

The team put on a goal-fest and cruised to a 7-0 victory over STVFC in the fourth round of the Seoul Region of the 2024 K5 League at the Seongnae Yusuji Soccer Stadium on Nov. 21. With the victory, Gunyung FC (9 points) moved to 3-1-1, tied on points with Wolsan Players FC and TNT FC (3+), who have played one game less, and continued to compete for the top spot.

This year’s K5 League features a total of 84 teams across 13 regions. The lowest-ranked team in each region will be relegated to the K6 League, while the top team will qualify for the K5 Championship. The Seoul region consists of eight teams, including last year’s regional champions and K5 Championship winners, 바카라사이트 Wolsan Players.

Founded in 2006, Gunyung FC is based in Itaewon-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul. The team won promotion in the 2022 K6 League by finishing first in their region, and last year, despite being in their first year of promotion, the team burst onto the scene by finishing third in their region. The team is known for their attacking style of play, scoring 62 goals in the league last year alone.

Before the game, head coach Yoon Hyung-hyung of Gunyung FC said, “We may have the advantage in terms of objective power, but the ball is round, so we won’t let our guard down. We will try to play aggressive soccer with a high line from the beginning of the game.” “It’s a game that depends on when the first goal is scored. Even if we take the lead, if we don’t score quickly, it will be difficult for us.”

In contrast, STV FC, founded in 2016, is a team from Cottonmok-dong, Jungnang-gu, Seoul, that finished runner-up in the K6 League last year and was promoted to the K5 League this year. The team name ‘STV’ stands for ‘Share The Vision’. Unlike most K5 teams, the team has relatively few professional players, and in this match, the starting roster was composed of three professional players.

STVFC Head Coach Jang Ji-won said, “Unlike last year when we played in K6, this year we are the challengers. Most of the teams in K5 are composed of professional players, so the difference in level is definitely felt.” “We have a lot of young players, so we will try to attack the opponent through our physical strength. Even if we lose, we want to show that we can do it too.”

Yoon’s attacking style of soccer worked right from the start. In the second minute of the first half, a cross from the right flank by a teammate was flicked on by captain Lee Kyung-taek with his head. Ko Gi-sung, who was in the doorway, calmly slotted it in to give the team the lead. Then, in the 13th minute of the first half, Ko Gi-sung rattled the net once again on a one-on-one opportunity to complete his multi-goal performance.

Shortly afterward, Kim Sung-wook added to the goal feast with a multi-goal performance. In the 17th minute, Kim scored the team’s third goal with a sharp free kick to the near post, and then rattled the net again two minutes later with a mid-range shot.

After Jung Kyung-tae added another goal in the 37th minute to make it 5-0 at halftime, Gunyung FC didn’t slow down their offense in the second half. In the 15th minute of the second half, substitute Yoon Hyung-hyung, the “Playing Director,” finished off a cross from the left flank by Jang Sung-hyun with his left foot to complete the scoring.

STVFC didn’t go down without a fight midway through the second half. Kim Woo-hyuk’s shot from the left side of the penalty area and Kim Gun-hyung’s header threatened the Gunyung FC goal on several occasions, but were denied by the goalkeeper’s saves, and the game ended with a 7-0 victory for Gunyung FC, with Ham Young-joon adding a goal just before the end of the match.

How Gaelic football became a fixture on Seoul’s amateur sports scene

Seoul Gaels women compete at a tournament in Jeju in November 2023. [TOM COYNER]

The 2002 FIFA World Cup is remembered as being a breakthrough moment for Korea, who defeated heavyweights Italy and Spain en route to the semifinals, and for cementing football as one of Korea’s most played and followed team sports. A round of 16 game between Ireland and Spain brought tens of thousands of Irish football fans to Suwon, Gyeonggi, and some would return to Korea as expats in an English-teacher boom. Expats brought with them their beloved sport, Gaelic football, opening their first club in 2002 — so goes the Gaelic-in-Korea lore, according to multiple long-time members of the Seoul Gaels, Korea’s oldest Gaelic football team.

Now, the club holds twice-weekly practices around southern Seoul, one on a weekday morning and another on a weekend, and is gearing up for the North Asian Gaelic Games, set to be held in Jeju in May.Kim Na-na, who grew up in Jeju, stumbled into Gaelic about a decade ago. She had wanted to play football, the Premier League kind — she’s a longtime Manchester United fan — but said she struggled to find a women’s club.o, when she saw a flier for Gaelic football practice in Seoul, open to women and players of all skill levels, at a Moroccan restaurant in Haebangchon, she decided to turn up, alone.“It was kind of scary because I’m not really extrovert person and then my English wasn’t perfect,” Kim said. “I remember there was only one or two Koreans there and then mainly Irish people and some Americans.”Ten years later, Kim is a fixture at the Seoul Gaels and regularly travels with the women’s team to compete at international tournaments in Asia and Ireland.“They really welcomed me,” Kim, now 37, said. “I had no expectation for myself, but everyone 토토사이트 really encouraged me.”

Meet the K League top scorer who spent 2023 in the fourth division

Gangwon FC forward Lee Sang-heon, left, celebrates during a K League match against Daegu FC at Chuncheon Songam Sports Town in Chuncheon, Gangwon on April 3. [GANGWON FC]

Over one month into the 2024 K League 1 season, Gangwon FC forward Lee Sang-heon is the leading scorer with seven goals in six games, outshining strong competitors like 2023 top scorer Joo Min-kyu of Ulsan HD. Twelve months ago he was playing in the fourth division.Lee, 26, has scored in five of the past six games, contributing to Gangwon’s solid run in the league so far.  The team, which struggled throughout last season and barely avoided relegation, sit in fifth-place on the 12-team table with two wins, three draws and one loss as of Thursday. Gangwon are also the second most prolific team in the league with 11 goals — one goal behind Ulsan — thanks largely to Lee’s personal contribution, which is a stark contrast to last season when the team finished the league as the least prolific team with only 30 goals in 38 matches.  But what type of player is Lee and how has he managed to score so many goals?  Comfortable as an attacking midfielder, winger or striker, Lee is able to dribble his way around most defenders, a skill he has put to work for both the U-17 and U-20 national teams.
He has played as a striker in Gangwon manager Yoon Jong-hwan’s 4-4-2 formation this season, under which his finishing skills have been more visible. His second goal against Daegu FC on April 3 displayed exactly that strength — he calmly stroked the ball into the net with a chip shot over goalkeeper Oh Seung-hoon inside the penalty area.   Lee is also able to capitalize on space created by fellow striker Yago Cariello, who tends to pull the defense out of position. The goal Lee scored against Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors on April 7 was an example of that, with Lee left unmarked inside the penalty box while Cariello pushed up the other side of the area.   Lee’s stats so far this season have been the best of his career. Lee started his pro career with Ulsan, where he made his debut in 2017 and failed to establish himself as a regular pick, prompting him to move to then-K League 1 team Jeonnam Dragons on loan for the 2018 season.  He returned to Ulsan in 2019 and played for the club for another two seasons, struggling to break into the first team or get any time on the field. Lee joined Gangwon this season from K League 2 side Busan IPark. He moved to Busan in 2021 but his career was a mixed bag. In the 2022 season he scored seven goals and picked up three assists in 31 games, but spent the 2023 슬롯게이밍 season playing for the club’s reserve team in the fourth-tier K4.

An Byeong-hun hangs on to leaders’ coattails after another tough Masters day

An Byeong-hun plays his shot from the 16th tee during the second round of The Players Championship on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida on March 15. [GETTY IMAGES]

An Byeong-hun was hanging on to dear life and anything that he could, including his cap, on another wind-swept day at the Masters Tournament on Friday. A battling one-over 73 in the second round meant he also found himself hanging onto the co-leaders’ coattails, with the coveted green jacket firmly in his sights.The 32-year-old produced two wonderful birdies late in his round at Augusta National to stay in the title fight at the year’s first major and will enter the weekend five shots back of Scottie Scheffler (72), Max Homa (71) and Bryson Dechambeau (73), who lead on six-under. “I thought yesterday was hard until I played it today, and it felt harder,” said An, who stands at one-under with six others. “I think the wind was a little stronger today. My hat wasn’t staying on my head for a couple of the holes.”Another tricky day saw winds blowing from between 24 to 32kph, with gusts of up to 56kph. Only eight players returned under par scores, while eight others shot 80 or worst, including reigning FedExCup champion Viktor Hovland who carded an 81 to be amongst the high-profile names to miss the halfway cut set at six-over.It got so hard that An, who is making his fifth Masters start and his first since 2020, felt he could have easily made bogeys in each of his back nine holes, especially when he had three in a row from the ninth. A combination of measured shots and some lucky bounces saw him make pivotal birdies on the par-5 13th hole and par-3 16th hole, where he miraculously chipped in from 33 yards off an awkward lie.“The back nine got very tricky. I got very lucky on a few shots, lucky bounces here and there, and then I don’t know how I shot even par on the back. That’s pretty impressive,” said An, whose best Masters finish was T33 in 2017.
“It’s not a joy at all. It’s not fun playing in these conditions. It’s definitely a battle out there. It’s a grind. There’s no easy holes. I could have made eight, nine bogeys in a row on the back nine, not because I was playing poorly but just the conditions. Somehow I scrambled well to shoot even par on the back.”An is still seeking a first PGA Tour victory, let alone a major win where only two Asian male golfers, Y.E. Yang (2009 PGA Championship) and Hideki Matsuyama (2021 Masters Tournament), have achieved the feat. He knows he needs to have instill morel trust into his golf swing, although conditions are forecasted to be a touch better over the weekend.“You try to make the best swing you can. I wasn’t able to do it today. I hit some poor shots out there all because the wind got into my head a little bit before I hit it,” said An, who has three top-10s this season and currently ranks seventh on the FedExCup points list.“Just have to hit a shot and accept every outcome that you get out of this wind and move on to the next hole because it’s such a difficult golf course to scramble around. I felt like I did that pretty good today.”Matsuyama  (74) and An’s compatriots, Tom Kim (78) and Kim Si-woo (76), made the 36-hole cut right on the number while Masters debutant Ryo Hisatsune (78) and Im Sung-jae of Korea (74) failed to advance into the weekend.Tiger Woods, meanwhile, rewrote more Masters history by breaking a tie with Gary Player and Fred Couples when he extended his streak of consecutive made cuts at Augusta National to 24 after carding a 72 to sit on one-over, just seven back of the leaders.The 82-time PGA Tour winner and five-time Masters champion is not prepared to only think of making cuts in whatever limited appearances that he makes these days following spells with various injuries and surgeries. “I’m here,” he said. “I have 카지노사이트킹 a chance to win the golf tournament.”

Spurs knocked from top four in humiliating 4-0 loss to Newcastle

Tottenham Hotspur suffered a huge 4-0 loss to Newcastle United on Saturday, slipping down to fifth place on the Premier League table in their biggest defeat of the season. Tottenham struggled with counter attacks in the match at St. James Park in Newcastle, England, conceding goals to repeat mistakes. Captain Son Heung-min committed the first offense, giving away the ball inside Newcastle’s penalty area, which led to a counter attack that Alexandar Isak took advantage of in the 30th minute.   The Spurs defense also cost them another goal two minutes later, with full-back Pedro Porro mistiming a pass toward the penalty box and allowing Anthony Gordon to snatch the ball and make it 2-0.Spurs conceded yet another goal in the 51st minute in nearly the same pattern as the first goal. Son gave away the ball inside the Newcastle territory, leading to a counter attack that allowed Isak to find the back of the net again.  
Son came off in the 57th minute after a tepid performance before Spurs conceded goal No. 4 to Fabian Schar in the 87th minute from a corner.  “We just didn’t really get to any levels that would allow us to sort of get a grip on the game,” Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou said after the match. The 4-0 loss was the biggest defeat Spurs suffered in all competitions in the 2023-24 season. The defeat pushed the London side down to fifth on the Premier League table. They are tied on points with Aston Villa at 60, but Villa edge out the London side by one goal on goal difference.Reclaiming the fourth place would be crucial for Spurs, as the top four sides in the Premier League earn berths in the next season’s Champions League.  Six league fixtures remain for Tottenham. The club will have a two-week break before they play the next match against local rivals Arsenal on April 28. Arsenal sit in second place with 71 points — two points behind 온라인카지노 defending champions Manchester City having played one game fewer.
