Conceding rate of 61.5%? Only two missed pitches… Home runs cannot diminish the value of Ryu Hyun-jin’s masterpiece pitching.

Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) is maintaining a sense of stability by pitching 5 or more innings and giving up 3 earned runs or less in 6 consecutive games. He is receiving praise from the local media every time he pitches for his unique ‘art pitching.’

In the game against the Texas Rangers held at home (Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) on the 13th (Korean time), he recorded a quality start (6 innings, 3 runs) for the first time in 480 days. He became the losing pitcher in two consecutive games following the game against the Oakland Athletics on the 8th, when he allowed two runs in five innings, but his pitching was good. It is also encouraging that he played 6 innings even though the number of pitches was being managed around 80 for injury management purposes.

His only regret is that his home run and run rate is high. In the game against Texas on the 13th, he was hit by leadoff hitter Corey Seager in the top of the 4th inning and then allowed a two-run home run to left against Robbie Grossman. If it weren’t for this mistake, he wouldn’t have been pushed out of the ‘starting match’ with three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer (Texas).

Ryu Hyun-jin became the losing pitcher in the game against Oakland on the 8th due to a home run. In the bottom of the 4th inning, when Toronto was ahead 1-0, Carlos Perez hit a left-field home run with one runner on. His only run was recorded as this home run.

In the game against the Colorado Rockies on the 2nd, he gave up 2 runs in 5 innings and struggled at Coors Field, the ‘graveyard of pitchers’, but left a mark after hitting a two-run home run by Elephuris Montero in the bottom of the 4th inning. In the game against the Cleveland Guardians on the 27th of last month, he allowed two solo shots to opposing hitter Jose Ramirez in the first inning and Tyler “Shin-e” Freeman in the fifth inning. In the Cleveland game, the only runs allowed were home runs.

There was almost no mismatch. The two-run home run allowed to Grossman in the game against Texas on the 13th also went well into the body with a cut fastball. As for the home run hit by Perez in the game against Oakland on the 8th, the batter did well to kick up a four-seam fastball that was slightly in the strike zone near the batter’s body (for right-handed batters).

The home run hit by Montero in the game against Colorado on the 2nd had a changeup that went somewhat to the center. This ball was a miss. The same goes for his changeup, which was hit by Gunner Henderson in the 6th inning against the Baltimore Orioles on August 2nd, which was his return game.

However, it is correct to say that the opposing batter responded well to the low curveball he threw when allowing a home run to Freeman in the 5th inning against Cleveland on the 27th of last month, and the high course fastball he threw to Ramirez in the 2nd inning. Of the 6 home runs this season, only 2 were missed throws.바카라사이트

Even after his 13-month rehabilitation hiatus, Ryu Hyun-jin has erased concerns about his lack of sense in practice and is showing great pitching day after day. In the game against Cleveland on the 8th of last month, he was only able to complete 4 innings due to an unexpected variable in which the batted ball hit his knee, but in all 7 other games, he pitched more than 5 innings. Aside from his return game (against the Orioles on August 2), he has never given up more than 3 runs in any game.

Ryu Hyun-jin is recording 75.8 pitches per game (total 606 pitches). Of his six home runs, only two were off pitches. The quality of the other 599 pitches is too high to criticize the content of the pitches. The reason for the recent two consecutive losses was the batting lineup’s silence in scoring. Ryu Hyun-jin is in good health.

Shall we form a ‘Dream Team’ in Paris? As ‘King’ LeBron moves, superstars also take interest

Will we regain our status as the world’s best?

American media outlet ESPN reported on the 12th that “NBA superstars are showing interest in participating in the 2024 Paris Olympics.” ‘King’ LeBron James is gathering superstars with his determination to participate in the Olympics.

The United States finished fourth in the recently concluded FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup. The United States, which ranked 7th in the previous competition in 2019, suffered the humiliation of no medals in two consecutive competitions. The result was far from being the best in the world. Previously, the number one spot in the FIBA ​​rankings was lost to Spain. The United States is currently in second place.메이저놀이터

As humiliation continued in basketball, where he had always been full of confidence, LeBron stepped forward. LeBron is looking at the ‘Last Dance’ at the 2024 Paris Olympics. LeBron won a bronze medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics and gold medals at the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Games. As LeBron began recruiting superstars, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant seemed to be of interest. Curry has never been to the Olympics, but he is remembered for winning the World Cup in 2010 and 2014.

The media explained, “There is a possibility of the return of Durant, Jayson Tatum, Devin Booker, and Draymond Green, who were members of the Tokyo Olympics winning team, as well as Chris Paul.”

If superstars participate in the Paris Olympics, it is expected that a spectacular team befitting the “Dream Team,” the nickname of the U.S. basketball team.

Hong Seong-chan, who had ‘explosive growth’ in just one year, lost 0-2 to Lajovic in the first singles match 

Hong Seong-chan (26th, 194th) showed rapid growth in just one year. However, he failed to win the first edition of the ‘Davis Cup Finals’, a men’s national tennis competition called the Tennis World Cup.

Seongchan Hong lost 0-2 (4-6, 6<3-7>6) in the 1st singles match of Group C of the 2023 tournament against Duşan Lajovic (52nd, Serbia) held in Valencia, Spain on the 12th (Korean time). Unfortunately we lost.바카라사이트

The next order of play is the ‘ace’ matchup between 2nd singles Soonwoo Kwon and Laszlo Zere. In the final doubles match, the pair of Nam Ji-seong and Song Min-gyu and Nikola Kasic and Miomir Kecmanovic clash.

Novak Djokovic, the Serbian national team’s super ace, will miss the Korea game. According to Eurosport, a European sports channel, Djokovic will miss the Korean game. “We will be able to see Djokovic against Spain,” Kecmanovic said. Djokovic has made it all the way to his US Open final, so regaining his fitness is an urgent priority.

Hong Seong-chan, who opened with a serve ace from the first serve, got off to a good start with three consecutive serve aces. Then, Hong Seong-chan, who protected his serve game with his persistent ability and control of the strength and weakness of his strokes, allowed his first break in a 2-2 situation. Hong Seong-chan, who gave up his 6th game as a love game, turned his mood around by winning the 7th game, which was his serve game, with difficulty. Hong Seong-chan, who again held his serve when trailing 3-5, drove his 10th game to deuce, but was unable to overcome Lajovic’s experience.

Hong Seong-chan, who got off to a good start by winning the first game of the second set, changed his play style unlike in the first set. Instead of holding back, he played on the line and put pressure on his opponent. Unfortunately, Hong Seong-chan, who was unable to break his second game, confidently maintained his serve. Afterwards, Hong Seong-chan failed to seize the opportunity to break even with a 5-4 lead, and reached 6 points first, but the game continued until a tie break. However, Hong Seong-chan was unable to block Lajovic’s powerful attack power.

Seocheon-gun, ‘second consecutive men’s track and field champion at the industrial competition’… attracts attention as ‘new track and field mecca’

 Seocheon-gun, South Chungcheong Province, is emerging as a new mecca in the track and field world.

According to the military on the 11th, the ’32nd National Industrial Team Athletics Competition and 2nd National University Athletics Competition’ held in the Seocheon Sports Complex ended successfully.

The county explained that this was the first competition held in Seocheon-gun after the Seocheon-gun Sports Complex Athletics Stadium was approved as a type 2 certified athletics stadium by the Korea Association of Athletics Federations last month.메이저사이트

Hosted and hosted by the Korea Athletics Federation, the competition was held in group and individual competitions for men and women, with over 1,100 athletes and officials participating, including 79 national business teams, 9 education college teams, and 44 university teams.

Athletes from the Seocheon-gun Workplace Athletics Department’s track and field team achieved excellent results, winning a total of five medals, including one gold medal in the 4x400mR (1600-meter relay), and winning the men’s general division championship for the second consecutive time.

In addition, the three-day competition contributed to the revitalization of the stagnant local economy, including local lodging and food establishments, and the county revitalized the local economy by hosting various national competitions and field training teams based on its excellent sports infrastructure, including an all-weather indoor track and field stadium. We plan to focus on

County Governor Kim Ki-woong said, “This competition, which is being held for the first time with the approval of a Type 2 certified track and field stadium, is a big step toward revitalizing Seocheon-gun track and field sports,” and added, “We will strive to maintain the reputation of Seocheon as a sports mecca by continuously attracting competitions.” “He said.

1st team canceled again ahead of 100G competition in 4 years… 1 hit in 18 at-bats in September ‘Is this true?’ There was no turnaround for the 2 billion won transfer student from LG

Kiwoom Heroes outfielder Lee Hyeong-jong (34), who had a sluggish first half, was once again sent down to the second team on the 11th.

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) announced the change in first-team entries on the 11th. LG Twins pitcher Choi Won-tae, Samsung Lions pitcher Kim Si-hyun, NC Dinos outfielder Cheon Jae-hwan, SSG Landers pitcher Lee Ki-soon, infielder Kim Chan-hyung, Jeon Eui-san, and Kiwoom Heroes pitcher Byun Si-won and outfielder Lee Hyeong-jong were sent down.

Along with the name of Choi Won-tae, who has 2 wins, 2 losses and an average ERA of 8.27 in 7 games since his trade transfer from Kiwoom to LG, the deletion of Lee Hyeong-jong also stood out. Hyeongjong Lee’s second erasure of the season.

Ahead of this season, a Futures free agent contract was signed with Kiwoom for a total of 2 billion won. Lee Hyeong-jong, who came to LG through LG’s first round selection after graduating from Seoul High School in 2008, was originally a pitcher when he joined, but switched to a hitter due to an injury.

He recorded a batting average of 0.282, 35 hits, 1 home run, 14 RBI, and 14 runs in 61 games in the 2016 season, and recorded triple-digit hits and double-digit home runs for three consecutive years from the 2017 season to the 2019 season. In the 2018 season, he had a career-high season with a batting average of .316, 138 hits, 13 home runs, and 42 RBI. He also hit double-digit home runs for four consecutive years from the 2018 season to the 2021 season.

He appeared in 624 career games, recording a career batting average of .281, 544 hits, 63 home runs, 254 RBI, and 286 runs scored. Last season, due to injuries, his batting average in 26 games was only 0.264, 14 hits, 7 RBIs, and 3 runs, but he was evaluated as a player who would do his part if given the opportunity.

Kiwoom also said, “We are happy to recruit a starting-level outfielder with abundant experience. It is expected that the addition of Lee Hyeong-jong will create a well-organized batting line and that the outfield defense will also become stronger. “I hope he will be a great help in attack and defense,” he said.먹튀검증

However, as the season approaches its end, Lee Hyung-jong’s performance is disappointing. In 99 games, he has a batting average of 0.215, 68 hits, 3 home runs, 37 RBI, 35 runs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.646. Dividing the first and second halves, the batting average in 77 games in the first half was 0.224, 57 hits, 3 home runs, and 30 RBIs, and in the second half, the batting average in 22 games was 0.177, 11 hits, 7 RBIs, and 6 runs.

The start of the season wasn’t bad. He was decent in April with a batting average of 0.264. In the opening series, against the Gocheok Hanwha Eagles on April 2, he raised expectations by hitting hard with 4 hits, 1 RBI, and 1 run.

However, the pace dropped in May. His batting average dropped to 0.191 in May and 0.194 in June. In early May, Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki said of Lee Hyung-jong, “He seems to be impatient. He is feeling pressured because he thinks he will be left out if he fails to hit one at-bat. So I said, ‘Don’t feel pressured, I won’t take it off during the game.’” He gave me confidence.

After the start of the second half of the season, he seemed to come back to life by hitting in 5 consecutive games, from the Busan Lotte Giants game on July 23rd to the Daegu Samsung Lions game on the 28th, but he fell silent again. In the end, coach Hong Won-ki dismissed Lee Hyeong-jong on August 3rd. He was raised again on August 25 after playing in eight games for the Futures and showing a batting average close to .300.

However, he came up and played in 12 games, but only had a hit in three games. In particular, his batting average in September is serious at 0.056. During his team’s recent seven-game losing streak, Hyung-Jong Lee has just 1 hit in 13 at-bats.

With Lee Jeong-hoo out due to injury and Lee Won-seok and Lee Ji-young also in the second team, we expected a one-shot from Lee Hyeong-jong, but it did not come.

For Lee Hyung-jong, who was on the verge of playing in 100 games for the first time in 4 years after playing in 120 games in the 2019 season, it is inevitable that he will be eliminated from the first team. Kiwoom has 13 remaining games. Will Lee Hyeong-jong get another chance?

“It’s gorgeous, it’s fantastic, it’s amazing” High praise pouring in on Ryu Hyun-jin… 7th place in AL immediately after returning, this is class

The commentators of ‘Sportsnet’, a Canadian sports network and Toronto’s main broadcaster, have recently been enthusiastic about praising Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto). It’s worth it. This is because the player, whose return was uncertain at the time of elbow surgery, is now contributing to the team with better-than-expected results.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who made his return on August 2nd (Korean time), has started a total of 7 games and pitched 34 innings since his return until the 11th, achieving excellent results with 3 wins, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 2.65. His hitting percentage is 0.219 and the number of hits allowed per inning (WHIP) is only 1.06. His average exit speed is 86 mph, which is similar to 2019, which is remembered as Ryu Hyun-jin’s heyday. His blade-like control still remains.

He feels his innings are a bit lacking, but that has to do with the circumstances. The game against Cleveland on August 8 (4 innings) was ruled out early due to being hit by a batted ball. Considering the number of pitches of 52, there was room for 1-2 more innings. In the game against Cleveland on August 27, he only threw 70 pitches in 5 innings. In the game against Colorado on the 2nd, he threw 76 pitches in 5 innings to prepare for his appearance on the mound after four days of rest. Overall, there is a tendency not to overdo it.

The Toronto broadcasters were also full of praise. It was the same before the game against Oakland on the 7th. ‘Sportsnet’ commentator Joe Siddle said of Ryu Hyun-jin, “He played very well in six games after returning from Tommy John surgery. He pitched five innings in all.

Shideul chose his ability to induce ground balls as his driving force. Siddle said, “His velocity has dropped, but he is attracting ground balls well. The change-up is working well for batters.” In fact, Ryu Hyun-jin’s velocity has not even recovered to the level of 2021, just before his elbow surgery, but he is achieving a good performance with an earned run average in the 2-run range through perfect pitching using various pitch types and differences in velocity.

‘Sportsnet’ panelist Jamie Campbell also said on the Freev Show before the Auckland game on the 7th, “We had a very massive and spectacular last five games. We threw a very slow curveball, and it was the location, and the location.” “It was absolutely fantastic. Alec Manoa, who was a Cy Young candidate last year, was missing, but Ryu Hyun-jin came in instead,” he said, praising him as the main character who saved Toronto’s rotation from being in crisis.

‘Sportsnet’ panelist and columnist Cy Davidi praised Ryu Hyun-jin’s command, saying, “Ryu Hyun-jin is going through the best scenario so far. He is doing better than expected. He is extremely sharp.” He added, “Despite Manoa’s departure, “Despite this, it is the key to Toronto’s ability to maintain its starting rotation,” he said, emphasizing that Ryu Hyun-jin’s exquisite timing of his return is providing strength to Toronto as a whole.

Looking at the actual results, you can realize how great Ryu Hyun-jin is having a comeback season. Many athletes say that for two years after elbow surgery, their arm does not feel like it has anything to do with it. Because he had been away for a long time, his senses were not perfect. Ryu Hyun-jin will not be much different. His velocity has not increased yet, and it is clear that he has less sense in some areas, such as his cutter. Nevertheless, he maintains strong control and is on a roll.

Looking at the American League’s ERA since August, Ryu Hyun-jin is in a position to aim for ‘Top 10’. The average ERA of 2.65 is good, ranking 12th among all major league pitchers who have pitched more than 32 innings during this period. Among the prominent pitchers is Ryu Hyun-jin, who has just completed rehabilitation from elbow surgery.메이저사이트

In the American League, only Cole Ragans (Kansas City), Dean Kremer (Baltimore), Pablo Lopez (Minnesota), Sonny Gray (Minnesota), Kyle Bradish (Baltimore), and Paul Blackburn (Oakland) are above Ryu Hyun-jin. In other words, the Toronto team has the highest ERA since August. Second place on the Toronto team is Chris Bassett, who has continued to perform well in the second half of the year, with 2.65, and third place is Yusei Kikuchi (2.97). These are also excellent scores, but they are not as good as Ryu Hyun-jin.

From now on, Ryu Hyun-jin will face a true test. Until now, we have faced a lot of teams with somewhat weak batting, but from now on we will be facing strong teams. Ryu Hyun-jin is scheduled to start the game against Texas to be held at Rogers Center, his home stadium, on the 13th. He is drawing interest as he is expected to face off against Max Scherzer, who has won the Cy Young Award three times. Texas boasts a powerful batting team led by Corey Seager and Marcus Siemian. Attention is focused on whether Ryu Hyun-jin’s skillful pitching can work against strong teams.

‘21st District → 19th District → 16th District → 24th District → 98th District’ ​​An unbelievable 5-game series… 20th century baseball in the 21st century, coach Lee Young-bok, are you happy with the bronze medal?

5 consecutive fights: 21st district → 19th district → 16th district → 24th district → 98th district. This is not a story about an ‘old baseball’ saga that might have come out of the 20th century or the 1980s. This is a story of the ‘abuse’ that an 18-year-old youth national team ace pitcher had to bear in the 21st century, 2023.

The Korean youth baseball team, led by coach Lee Young-bok (Chungam High School), won 4-0 against the United States in the bronze medal match at the World Youth Baseball Championship held in Taipei, Taiwan on September 10.

The Korean national team scored two points first in the first inning thanks to Yeo Dong-gun’s triple and Park Ji-hwan’s squeeze bunt. Korea gradually accumulated points with Lee Sang-jun’s timely hit in the 4th inning and Lee Seung-min’s timely triple in the 6th.

Above all, Kim Taek-yeon, who appeared as the starting pitcher that day, led the team to a bronze medal with a complete pitching pitch of 7 innings, allowing 2 hits, 9 strikeouts, 1 walk, and no runs. Kim Taek-yeon appeared in a total of 6 games in this tournament and showed his ace-like qualities with 2 wins, 16 innings, 29 strikeouts, 4 walks, and an ERA of 0.88.

However, if we look at the process rather than the result, the youth national team cannot avoid the controversy over ‘overuse of five consecutive matches’.

Kim Taek-yeon pitched in relief against Taiwan on September 2 and threw 54 pitches. After taking a day’s rest, he made a relief appearance against Australia on September 4 and threw 15 pitches.먹튀검증

And Kim Taek-yeon, who took a day’s rest on the 5th, made a relief appearance against Puerto Rico on the 6th and threw 21 pitches, but was unable to finish the pitch due to a suspended game due to rain. Kim Taek-yeon, who also took the mound in the suspended game against Puerto Rico that resumed on the 7th, finished his appearance by throwing 19 pitches.

In the Super Round match against the United States held on the 8th, Kim Taek-yeon took the mound in relief, following starter Hwang Jun-seo, and pitched 16 pitches. Kim Taek-yeon, who pitched 3 consecutive pitches, also appeared in relief in the Super Round match against the Netherlands on the 9th and threw 24 pitches along with 4 consecutive pitches.

Following the 4-game series, the much-anticipated ‘5-game series’ became a reality. Kim Taek-yeon took the starting mound in the bronze medal game against the United States and threw a total of 98 pitches until the 7th inning. In 21st century baseball, where a total of 178 pitches were thrown over 5 days, something incredibly and unrealistic happened.

Kim Taek-yeon’s youth baseball team appearance log:

54 pitches against Taiwan on the 2nd,

3 days’ rest,

15 pitches against Australia on the 4th,

5 days’ rest

21 pitches against Puerto Rico on the 6th,

19 pitches against Puerto Rico (suspended) on the 7th, 16

pitches against the US on the 8th,

24 pitches against the Netherlands on the 9th,

98 pitches against the US on the 10th,

a total of 247 pitches pitched over 9 days during the tournament.

Even in the KBO League, where players must grow into adults and prepare for their professional debut to advance to the first team, it is difficult to find five-game series without a break. The pitcher who most recently pitched five consecutive pitches in the KBO League is Shim Soo-chang of the Hanwha Eagles, led by former coach Kim Seong-geun (current Choi Kang Baseball coach) in 2016. (3 pitches in 0.1 innings against Doosan on the 17th, 21 pitches in 0.2 innings against LG on the 18th, 21 pitches in 0.2 innings against LG on the 19th) (14 pitches in 1.1 innings against LG, 40 pitches in 2.1 innings against KT on the 20th, 10 pitches in 1.1 innings against KT on the 21st)

Kim Taek-yeon is even the player who suffered even more severe abuse in 5 consecutive pitches than Shim Soo-chang in 2016. On the last day of the five-game series, he threw a whopping 98 pitches, which was a more difficult pitching schedule than that of a veteran professional pitcher who had experienced all kinds of hardships. Before the bronze medal match on September 10th, Doosan, which had Taekyeon Kim as a candidate for first round selection, was also paying close attention to the youth national team’s final game. A Doosan official asked with a wry smile, “Is it really true that Kim Taek-yeon will be on the starting mound?”

Coach Lee Young-bok and his coaching staff, who are responsible for managing the national team’s games, are also not free from the controversy over abuse. This is because the rest day rule based on the number of pitches was cleverly used to protect the arms and shoulders of youth players. The rest day rule according to the number of pitches stipulated by the tournament headquarters was not created to encourage five-game pitching, which goes from 21 pitches → 19 pitches → 16 pitches → 24 pitches → 98 pitches. Adults who should protect the future of Korean baseball more than anyone else ordered an embarrassing five-game series just for the sake of a bronze medal.

The five-game series is an abuse and disaster that has already occurred, but baseball officials and baseball fans must never forget September 10, 2023. This is why among the pitchers who faced controversy over overuse in the past World Youth Baseball Championships, there were cases where they gave up their dreams without even blooming in the first team. The results of this international competition, which is held for about 10 days, are not responsible for the next 10 or 20 years of the youth athlete’s life.

I would like to convey a message to the youth national team players that they have all worked hard and congratulate them, but this bronze medal performance and Kim Taek-yeon’s five consecutive fights should never be packaged as ‘beautiful fighting spirit.’ For an 18-year-old pitcher, five consecutive pitches of 178 pitches without any rest days is clearly overwork. Regardless of Kim Taek-yeon’s future health, we must prevent another ‘5-fight abuse’ and victims from it in the future. I would like to ask here. Coach Lee Young-bok, are you really happy that you won a bronze medal?

Just 6 months after the famous match at the World Championship… Jo Jae-ho vs. Martinez, return match on the way to the PBA semifinals

The return match between Jae-ho Cho (NH Nonghyup Card) and David Martinez (Crown Haitai, Spain) was concluded. It has been six months since the final match of last season’s World Championship (King of Kings).

Jae-ho Cho defeated Geon-hwi Jo (SK Rent-a-Car) with a set score of 3-0 (15-13 15-2 15-12) in the round of 16 of the 2023-2024 season PBA 4th Tour ‘SY Championship’ held at KINTEX PBA Stadium in Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 9th. pressed.

‘156km’ Japan’s best ace, 102 pitches, no hit, no run… High praise from Yankees general manager “I want to keep my ticket today and get an autograph”

Yoshinobu Yamamoto (25), the best active ace in Japanese professional baseball, achieved his second personal no-hit no run. He set a no-hit, no-run record for two consecutive years, the third in Japanese history.

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, who happened to be watching Yamamoto’s pitching, saw Yamamoto’s no-hitter and did not spare high praise. Yamamoto is preparing to enter the major leagues through the posting system after finishing this season. Scouts from seven major league teams, including the Yankees, watched on this day.

Yamamoto appeared as a starting pitcher in the game against the Chiba Lotte Marines held at Jojo Marine Stadium in Japan on the 9th, and threw 102 pitches in 9 innings, allowing only 1 walk and 1 base hit, striking out 8, and recording no hits. Orix won 4-0.

Yamamoto continued his perfect pitching on this day, throwing 47 pitches through the 5th inning, mainly using fastballs with a speed of 156 km and forkballs.

He gave up a perfect pitch in the 6th inning by walking the lead batter, but he continued to allow no hits after that. The highlight of the 8th inning was that KKK struck out three batters in a row. After 2 outs in the 9th inning, a ball hit to the body allowed the team to get on base for the second time that day. He completed the record with a grounder to second base with two outs and one on base.먹튀검증

Yamamoto recorded a no-hitter and no run against the Seibu Lions on June 18 last year. He succeeded in no-hitting and no-running for two consecutive years for the first time in 82 years since Eiji Sawamura in 1936-1937 and Tadashi Kameda in 1940-1941. A first record in a two-major league system.

In an interview with Japanese media after the game, General Manager Cashman said, “I think everyone who watched the game today was excited. “It was a great game, a historic play,” he said, adding, “I will treasure today’s ticket.” “When I meet him later, he might be able to get an autograph,” he said meaningfully.

Also, General Manager Cashman, who witnessed Yamamoto’s skills in the first game he watched, said, “It is a great thing for the team and the fans. I’m happy to see it too. “I’m coming to see Yamamoto, and he chose a good game,” he said, leaving the stadium with a smile.

Yamamoto has appeared in 20 games (143 innings) this season, recording 14 wins, 5 losses, an ERA of 1.26, and 145 strikeouts. He ranks first in four categories: most wins, earned run average, strikeouts, and winning percentage.

In 2021 and 2022, he won the league MVP and Sawamura Award for two consecutive years, winning four awards in wins, earned run average, strikeouts, and winning percentage. He seems likely to win the award for the third year in a row this year.
