KIA Reverses LG in Game 1 of Double Header

After a nine-game winning streak, the Kia Tigers bounced back from a brief hiatus.

The Tigers rallied to beat the LG Twins 7-6 in the first game of a doubleheader in the Baseball World Series 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on Monday.

After taking a 5-2 lead only to see it slip away with four runs in the seventh inning, KIA rallied to win the game in the bottom of the eighth.

In the eighth inning, LG right-handed reliever Yoo Young-chan got the first batter, Socrates Brito, to ground out to second base.

However, Kim Sun-bin changed the momentum with a single to left-center field, and Lee Woo-sung followed with an infield hit that deflected off the first baseman’s mitt to put runners on first and second.

Ko Jong-wook, pinch-hitting, took advantage of a forked ball from Yoo Young-chan and lined a single to right to tie the game at 6-6.

Kim Tae-gun followed with a single to left field.

With runners on first and second in the eighth inning, LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop brought in closer Go Woo-seok. It was Yeom’s move to prevent a comeback.

However, Yeom’s hopes were dashed as Park Chan-ho took a curveball from Go Woo-seok and hit a game-winning single to center field.

In the top of the ninth, LG’s leadoff hitter Hong Chang-ki walked and Shin Min-jae laid down a sacrifice bunt to put runners on first and second.

However, KIA closer Jung Hae-young struck out both Kim Hyun-soo and pinch-hitter Seo Gun-chang on infield grounders to preserve the win.

Both teams fought hard on this day.

It was KIA who took control of the game.

KIA opened the scoring in the third inning with a solo shot to left by Hwang Dae-in and scored on a double to right by Na Sung-beom.

In the top of the fourth inning, LG shortstop Oh Ji-hwan’s throwing error on Lee Woo-sung’s grounder to third led to a run.

After LG scored two runs in the fifth on back-to-back singles by Oh Ji-hwan, Park Dong-won and Moon Sung-joo, a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly by Hong Chang-ki, KIA scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth on Lee Woo-sung’s double to left field, a stolen base, a walk by Hwang Dae-in, a single to right by Kim Tae-gun and a wild pitch by Jung Woo-young to extend the lead to 5-2.

Leader LG fought back hard.

In the top of the seventh inning, LG got one run back on Park Dong-won’s 20th home run of the season. Park became the first LG catcher to hit 20 homers in 13 years since Jo In-sung (28) in 2010.

After Moon Sung-ju drew a walk and Park Hae-min, who was ruled out on a foul tip, was overturned after video review, LG had runners on first and second.

Hong Chang-ki singled to right, and Park Hae-min, who had reached third, scored on a throwing error by the KIA infield as Song was heading for second base, tying the game at 5-5.

After Shin Min-jae was hit by a pitch and stole second and third, Kim Hyun-soo’s grounder to the second baseman brought home Hong Chang-ki to give LG a 6-5 lead.

However, KIA did not give up and scored two runs on four hits in the bottom of the eighth inning to tie the game again.

Fifth-ranked KIA, which had lost two straight games after winning nine in a row, added a valuable point. 파워볼게임

Lee Ga-young closes in on KLPGA Tour major queen

Lee Ga-young (이가영) has a chance to win a major on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour.

Lee shot a 1-over-par 73 with two birdies and three bogeys in the third round of the KB Financial Star Championship, the fourth major of the season on the KLPGA Tour, at Blackstone Golf Club (Par 72) in Icheon, Gyeonggi Province, on Monday.

At 3-under-par 213, Lee maintained a one-stroke lead over second-place Ye Won Lee.

Despite shooting over par on the day, Lee maintained her lead after shooting under par in the first and second rounds for the only time in her career.

Icheon Blackstone is considered one of the toughest courses on the KLPGA Tour.

Only three players were under par in the third round, including third-ranked Park Ji-young Lee (1-under 215).

Lee got off to a strong start with birdies at the second (par-4) and seventh (par-3) holes without a bogey.

However, her second shot on the 10th, 12th, and 14th holes (all par-4s) failed to find the green, resulting in a pair of costly bogeys.

“When I recovered from the bogeys, I missed the green the most,” Lee said after the third round. “Tomorrow, I’m going to play to protect the green,”

she added.

“Unlike the first and second rounds, I felt a little distracted in the middle of the round, but tomorrow I will keep my focus until the end,” she said.

With a two-day lead, Lee was on track to win her second title since the Dongbu E&C-Korea Land Trust Championship in October last year.

Lee, who made her debut in 2019, won her first title in her 98th appearance last year, shaking off four years of runner-up finishes.

This year, she continued to knock on the door of two wins, including a third-place finish at the Mediheal-Korea Times Championship in April and a runner-up finish at the Haiwon Resort Women’s Open in August.

Lee, who has two wins on the season and leads the money list, made just two birdies without a bogey to trail Lee by one stroke.

“I was frustrated with my play at the beginning, but I made a chip-in birdie on the first hole of the back nine and (my play) started to come together,”


Park Ji-young, who shot her best score of the day (5-under 67) the day before, faltered with three birdies and four bogeys, dropping one spot to third.

“It was hard and sad that my game didn’t go very well today, but I managed to hang in there,” Park said, adding, “I will give it my all tomorrow.”

Seung-hee Noh carded six birdies on the day to shoot an even-par 216 and move into fourth place.

Seung-Hee Noh’s focus was unwavering, as he made six putts under three yards. He didn’t make a single three-putt.

“I wasn’t putting well in the first half, so before the Hanwha Classic (last month), I went to a pro who has been giving me putting lessons since I was a kid, and it’s been going well since then,” Noh said, “I’ve been working on the basics like ball position and power delivery.”

Defending champion Park Min-ji shot an even-par 72 for the second straight day and is tied for 10th (6-over-par 222) with Kim Min-byul, Lee Hyun-ju and seven others.

Jeon In-ji, playing in Korea for the first time in a year, shot a 2-over-par 74 to finish tied for 34th (10-over-par 226). 스포츠토토

The U.S. national soccer team has lost their fifth game without a win under Klinsmann

The U.S. national soccer team has lost their fifth game without a win under Klinsmann, drawing 0-0 with Wales.

The Korean national soccer team drew 0-0 with Wales in an away exhibition match in Europe, failing to record its first win under Klinsmann.

The South Korean men’s national soccer team, led by head coach Klinsmann, drew 0-0 with Wales in an exhibition match at Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, on Aug. 8 (KST).

Coach Klinsmann predicted an attacking style of soccer with Son Heung-min and Cho Kyu-sung as the front two, but instead, the team conceded an early lead to Wales.

After the crisis, the team tried to fight back, but the offense was still not smooth, with several missed passes.

The team introduced Hwang Hee-chan and Lee Sun-min as substitutes in the second half to try and turn things around, but it didn’t have much of an effect and the game ended in a 0-0 draw.

It was Klinsmann’s fifth game in charge, and his inability to secure a win has put a question mark over his leadership.

The national team will play their second European 카지노사이트가이드 test of September against Saudi Arabia on Sept. 13.

Hae-Ran Lee and Hye-Jin Choi secured a sixth place

Hae-Ran Lee and Hye-Jin Choi secured a sixth place finish on the first day of the LPGA Kroger Queen City Championship.

Rookie Hae Ran Lee and second-year player Hye Jin Choi are tied for sixth place after the first day of the Kroger Queen City Championship on the U.S. Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour ($2 million purse).

Ryu and Choi shot a combined 5-under 67 in the first round of the tournament on Monday (Aug. 8) at Kenwood CC in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.

They are two strokes off the lead with Liu Ruixin (China) at 7-under 65.

She is one stroke behind tied for second place with Jen Bei-Yun (Chinese Taipei), Elizabeth Shokol (USA), Dottie Adina (Philippines) and Linea Strom (Sweden).

Hae-ran got off to a solid start with five birdies without a bogey on the day.

Hae-ran, who finished the Qualifying Series in first place overall last December, leads the Rookie of the Year standings this season with 598 points, ahead of Grace Kim (AUS – 512).

While she has yet to win a tournament, Hae-ran has five top-10 finishes in 18 events. Her best finish was a third-place finish at the Mizuho Americas Open in June.

Choi, in her second year on the LPGA Tour, is also looking for her second top-10 finish of the season after carding five birdies without a bogey.

After a solid year last year with 10 top-10 finishes in 10 events, Choi has cooled off a bit this year. A tie for eighth at the Meyer Classic in June is her only top-10 finish.

Park Sung-hyun and Shin Ji-eun are tied for 36th (2-under 70), Ju Soo-bin is tied for 49th (1-under 71), and An Na-lin is tied for 69th (even-par 72).

Rookie Hyo-Jun Jang, 먹튀검증토토사이트 who earned his first top-10 finish at the Portland Classic on April 4, also finished at 1-over par.

Ohtani will miss his fourth consecutive game due to a “side injury”

Ohtani will miss his fourth consecutive game due to a “side injury”; he will return in a day or two.

Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (MLB) was out of the lineup for the fourth straight game due to a side injury.

The Los Angeles Angels did not start Ohtani for their home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday (Aug. 8) at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.

Ohtani hasn’t played in four days after feeling soreness in his side (obliques) during batting practice on May 5.

Ohtani, who tore a ligament in his right elbow on March 24, gave up his pitching duties for the rest of the season and has been focusing on hitting.

But after hitting his 44th home run of the season, he went 10 games without producing a home run and eventually lost the major league lead in that category to Matt Olson (46-homer, Atlanta Braves) before going down with a side injury.

“His movement and swing are better, but not good enough to start,” Angels manager Phil Nevin said, adding that he expects him to return in the next day or two.

Ohtani reportedly took batting practice in the batting cage and did some agility drills.

Ohtani is 10-5 with a 3.14 ERA as a pitcher this year, and he’s also been a standout at the plate, batting .304 (151-for-497) with 44 home runs and a 1.066 OPS 카지노사이트킴 (on-base plus slugging percentage).

‘Divine’ Goff and ‘Power’ Sabalenka will face battle

‘Divine’ Goff and ‘Power’ Sabalenka will face battle in the US Open Women’s Singles Championship Final Showdown.

World No. 2 Arina Sabalenka (Belarus) and home-court favorite Coco Goff (No. 6-USA) will face off for the title of women’s singles champion at the US Open ($65 million), the last major tennis tournament of the year.

Goff defeated 10th-ranked Karolina Muhova (Czech Republic) 2-0 (6-4 7-5) in two hours and three minutes in the women’s singles semifinals on the 12th day of the tournament at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City, USA.

Sabalenka’s 2-1 (0-6 7-6<7-1> 7-6<10-5>) come-from-behind victory over No. 17 Madison Keys (USA) in a two-hour, 32-minute semifinal match that went to two tiebreaks completed the final lineup.

The 19-year-old Goff, born in 2004, is being touted as the next big thing in American tennis.

At Wimbledon in 2019, she became the youngest player in history to qualify at 15 years, 122 days old.

With her steady rise, Goff was recognized as one of the “next big things” when she finished runner-up at the French Open last year.

If Goff defeats Savalenka, she will become the first American to win the US Open in six years since Sloane Stephens (36th) in 2017.

The 5-foot-7 player is known for her quick feet and physical strength.

Goff’s opponent, Sabalenka, is a 6-foot-2 player with power that comes from her size.

She is one of the hardest hitting women’s players in the tournament, with a top speed of 196 kilometers per hour on her serve, which ranks second among all women competitors.

As her No. 2 ranking suggests, Sabalenka has been a consistent force in major singles in recent years.

She has reached the quarterfinals of six majors in the last three years. She reached the semifinals of five consecutive majors from last year’s US Open to this year’s US Open, and earlier this year she reached the final of a major for the first time in her career at the Australian Open.

Goff leads the head-to-head series 3-2. However, in their most recent meeting at this year’s Indian Wells Open, Savalenka won 2-0.

This is the first time both Goff and Sabalenka have reached the US Open singles final.

The final between Goff and Sabalenka will begin at 5 a.m. ET on Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, Goff had a chance to save a match point in the second set with Mujova leading 5-3.

Undeterred, Goff broke back for a 6-5 lead and rallied for a tournament-record 40 consecutive points before Mujova’s backhand sailed off the line to seal the match.

Goff was leading 1-0 in the second set when four environmentalists staged a surprise protest in the stands, causing the match to be suspended for about 40 minutes.

Three of them were ejected early, but one had his feet glued to the floor of the stands, which took a lot of time to clear.

“If that’s what the environmentalists felt they had to do to make their voices heard, I can’t be mad at them,” Goff said after the match.

Sabalenka dropped the first set to Keith 0-6 and looked to be out of the quarterfinals for the third year in a row, but she showed more mental toughness as she battled back to take the match to two tiebreaks.

In the third-set tiebreak, she made fans laugh when, after reaching seven points, she let go of her tennis racket in celebration, thinking she had secured her place in the final.

Tiebreaks are usually won by the first player to reach seven points, 카지노사이트넷 but in the final set of a major, they are played to 10 points.
