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.

The match, which was held as a best-of-nine match, went to a full set, and Cho Jae-ho defeated Martinez 5-4 and took home the prize money of 200 million won.

It remains to be seen whether Martinez will succeed in getting revenge in this return match and whether Jo Jae-ho will continue his winning streak at the World Championship once again.

‘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.

Klinsmann ‘mouthed’ during cooling break, ‘spoken’ after game, personally requested uniform “for his son”

It’s a series of disappointments. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59) directly requested a uniform from an opposing team player after the game, causing a stir among domestic fans. It was the opposite of the ‘mouthed’ look he showed during the cooling break.

The Korean national soccer team, led by Coach Klinsmann, played an international match with Wales at Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff, England on the 8th (Korean time) and drew 0-0 without scoring.

As a result, the Korean national team has recorded 3 draws and 2 losses since Coach Klinsmann took office. Coach Klinsmann is the first foreign coach in Korean soccer history to not have his first win in five games.

However, Coach Klinsmann’s expression was full of composure. It is reported that he approached Wales captain Aaron Ramsey (33, Cardiff City) with his characteristic kind and smiling smile and asked for a uniform.

This was revealed through a video released by BBC Wales on social media after the game. In a broadcast interview immediately after the game, Coach Klinsmann was asked, ‘I saw Ramsey receive a shirt after the game.’

Coach Klinsmann then smiled brightly, saying, “I have a son who plays as a goalkeeper for the Los Angeles Galaxy (USA), and he sent me a message before the game saying, ‘Can you get me Ramsey’s uniform?'”

Of course, this is a passage that shows how much Director Klinsmann cares about his son.

A coach can ask a player to wear a uniform, but is it really necessary to do so in a public event right after the game? He could have gone to the locker room and asked for it separately. He may be seen as an arrogant behavior that ignores the domestic public opinion pouring in on him.

Director Klinsmann is reneging on his promise to work from home, which he made at his first press conference in office. He is breaking his promise to reside in Korea as he stayed in Korea for only 67 days during the six months he was appointed to the Korean national team. Rather, he is protesting that “the way I communicate and observe players is different from before.”

I am also hearing reviews that my main job and side job have changed. This is because he is more active through side jobs such as various media panels and running his own business than his main job as the head coach of the Korean national team. Previously, the British BBC also pointed out his remote work, calling him a ‘remote control director.’

Germany’s ‘Sport 1’ said, “The strange Klinsmann story is repeated. He is criticized in Korea for working from home,” and added, “This will sound familiar to many German fans. Klinsmann works 24 hours a day, but he works on site. “I don’t do it,” he pointed out.

The atmosphere before the game was good. ‘Captain’ Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Cho Kyu-sung (Midtjylland), Hwang In-beom (Crvena Zvezda), Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), Hong Hyun-seok (Gent), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic), etc. Most of the European factions were summoned.

This was right after most of these attack resources raised attack points such as goals. The distance traveled was short, so there was no difficulty in controlling the condition. Unlike when the friendly match was held in Korea, the conditions were such that the overseas players could perform to their full potential.

The opponent, Wales, faced the challenge with a 1.5 force. Wales coach Rob Page, who was rumored to be fired after losing to Armenia and Turkey in the recent Euro qualifiers, expressed his feelings of pressure, saying, “I don’t want a friendly match with Korea.” This is because there were concerns about injuries due to the Euro qualifier trip to Latvia on the 12th.

However, Klinsmann’s performance was dismal. Throughout the game, he consistently used back passes and side passes and relied on long balls that did not pass through the midfield.안전놀이터

Position placement that did not properly utilize the players’ characteristics was also a problem. The midfield, consisting of Hwang In-beom and Park Yong-woo, failed to demonstrate proper synergy, and the center-oriented Lee Jae-seong and Hong Hyun-seok were tied to the sides, blocking their own path.

In the end, even Son Heung-min, who was placed at the front line, had to move down to the middle to receive the ball. There were relatively few shots toward the goal, and Wales’ attack was sharper.

There were times during the game that day when the atmosphere could change. A cooling break was given in the 25th minute of the first half. It is a time for players to cool off from the scorching heat and drink plenty of water, but most coaches do not miss this opportunity and try to change the flow of the game by giving various orders to their players.

However, Director Klinsmann’s appearance on the TV screen was different from expectations. He barely moved from where he was standing when the players came in. All the players gathered around him, but he just stared blankly, wiping his mouth or putting his hands on his hips.

Right in front was ‘captain’ Son Heung-min. It was a moment when I could convey to Son Heung-min what I could not do individually to the players. But Coach Klinsmann did not do that. Director Klinsmann, seen on camera, just stood there silently for 20 seconds.

The promise of a ‘genius shortstop’ who showed class, “We will win both double headers with Samsung.”

Kim Jae-ho, the ‘genius shortstop’ whom the Doosan Bears are proud of, showed the strength of a veteran and led the team to a dramatic come-from-behind victory.

Doosan, ranked 6th, won 8-7 in the 11th game of the season against Samsung Lions, ranked 8th in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League, held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 8th. The 5th place KIA Tigers were caught by the leaders LG Twins and fell into a losing streak, narrowing the gap to 2 games and laying the foundation for advancement to the top 5.

The culprit behind Doosan’s victory was Kim Jae-ho, who started as the second hitter and shortstop. Jae-ho Kim bombarded the Samsung mound with a heavy hit, including 2 hits in 5 at-bats, 1 home run, 3 RBIs, and 1 run.

Kim Jae-ho had a thrilling experience at the bottom of the 5th inning when Doosan was tied 2-2 with one out and runners on first base. He hit a 2-run home run against Samsung starting pitcher Kim Dae-woo, who was struggling, to make the score 4-2.

In one ball, one strike, Kim Dae-woo’s third pitch, a 121km curve, was hit with a perfect swing and the ball flew 116m over the left wall. After hitting his second home run of the season against Kiwoom Heroes on the 24th of last month, he hit a home run in two weeks.

Kim Jae-ho’s performance continued. In the bottom of the 8th inning, when Doosan was trailing 6-8, he hit a 1-run double with 1 out, 1st and 2nd base, and narrowed the score gap to 6-7 with multiple hits.

Later, in the bottom of the 9th inning when the team was down 7-8, Doosan achieved a thrilling 8-7 walk-off victory thanks to Kang Seung-ho’s dramatic timely hit to tie the game with one out and runners on second base, and Samsung third baseman Ryu Ji-hyuk’s catching error when Park Gye-beom’s infield grounder with one out and runners on first and second base. Kim Jae-ho’s two-run home run and double laid the foundation for a dramatic victory.먹튀검증

Jae-ho Kim also dominated the game on defense. In the top of the 7th inning, when Doosan was down 5-6, with one out and runners on second and third base, he caught Lee Jae-hyun’s difficult infield ground ball and quickly turned it into a home throw, preventing third base runner Kang Han-wool from scoring. It was a valuable defense that cut off the flow of Samsung’s attack and created room for Doosan to counterattack.

With the win against Samsung on the 8th, Doosan was able to prepare for the double header on the 9th with a lighter mind. The success of chasing down KIA for 5th place is also a result of securing the momentum to continue the fight for the top 5.

After the game, Kim Jae-ho said, “It was a really tough game, but I’m glad I won. The young players did their part at the end and we were able to win.” He added, “In the home run situation in the bottom of the 5th inning, the two balls in front were fastballs, so I was confident that a breaking ball would come in. “I turned it around and it seems like the timing was right and it went away,” he said.

He also explained, “The defense in the top of the 7th inning was in a forward defense situation, so the bounce of the batted ball was high. I made a strong throw, thinking that the half-timer was throwing quickly, but catcher Jang Seung-hyeon handled it well.”

He didn’t forget to greet the home fans. He promised, “We won thanks to the many fans who came and supported us until the end. We will focus on the double header on the 10th and bring victory to everyone.”

Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop praised the most senior fielder who led the team to victory, saying, “Kim Jae-ho recorded an RBI at every opportunity.”

Teamwork is missing due to difficulties in recruiting players… Anxious Hwang Seonhongho

Coach Hwang Sun-hong (pictured), who is simultaneously leading the U-22 national soccer team that will participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics and the Hangzhou Asian Games national team, is only showing an anxious appearance. Because the players are not called up smoothly, the players’ hands and feet are not in sync during the game. If this situation continues, it will be difficult to guarantee not only advancement to the Paris Olympics but also a gold medal in the upcoming Asian Games in Hangzhou.

Coach Hwang led the national team that will participate in the Paris Olympics and played the first match of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-23 Asian Cup qualifier against Qatar at the Changwon Football Center on the 6th. The result was a complete defeat, 0-2. It was difficult to find pattern plays throughout the game, and soccer was played solely based on the players’ individual abilities.메이저놀이터

It’s largely because he didn’t train fully. Coach Hwang summoned both teams side by side on the 4th, but all key players were missing. For the U-22 team, Lee Hyun-joo (Wiesbadenby) arrived on the 3rd and Jeong Sang-bin (Minnesota) arrived on the 4th. Kwon Hyuk-gyu (Celtic), who arrived in the country on the 5th, could not even train. Coach Hwang was forced to coach the Asian Games national team in the morning and the U-22 team in the afternoon, but there was no way the training would go well.

The situation is the same for the Asian Games national team. Seol Young-woo (Ulsan Hyundai) and Hong Hyun-seok (Gent) are preparing for the European friendly with national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, and it is still unclear whether Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain, PSG), who will play the role of ace, will participate. PSG plans to notify whether Lee Kang-in will be selected on the 13th. Director Hwang has no choice but to worry. The Asian Games are approaching, with the first group stage match against Kuwait on the 19th, but we are not even able to get our hands and feet together.

After the shocking comeback loss in the bottom of the 9th inning… “I’m sorry,” Ko Woo-seok and Moon Bo-kyung bowed their heads, a word from the command center 

Bottom of the 9th inning, where the 3-run lead was quickly overturned. It was a nightmare night for the LG Twins, who lost 3-4 in the Suwon game on the 6th.

The aftermath was severe for Go Woo-seok, who gave up four runs and gave up a walk-off hit, and third baseman Bo-kyung Moon, who gave up a walk-off hit.

Amidst the chaos, two seniors set out to clean up the mess. Captain Oh Ji-hwan and his eldest brother Kim Hyun-soo took the two players, who were in shock after the game, and actively covered them.

The head coach of LG, Yeom Kyung-yeop, also embraced the two players who came to visit.

Go Woo-seok bowed his head to Coach Yeom and said, ‘I am so sorry that the team has suffered because of me.’ Director Yeom waved his hand.

“What are you talking about? How many games have I won because of you?” he said, actively covering up the special finish. At the same time, he advised, “Today’s failure will be a great lesson and strength in the remaining 30 games, in the future big games, and in Ko Woo-seok’s entire baseball life.”토토사이트

Coach Yeom treated Moon Bo-kyung the same way, who allowed the game to end due to a misplay.

In response to Moon Bo-kyung’s apology, he said, “It’s all experience. You hit a walk-off home run, and there are a lot more games we won thanks to you.”

He also did not forget to give advice. “When there is a runner in front, the follow-up runner (the lead is deep) is bound to come much faster than you think. The runner on second base (Kim Sang-soo) comes to third base faster than you think and catches your sight, so you may be embarrassed as you try to hit third base. “In the future, when that happens, it is more likely to step back and throw to first base.” Moon Bo-kyung tried to end the inning by touching third base, but missed Hwang Jae-gyun’s big bounce grounder. I was devastated by the last-minute play and was unable to leave the ground during the opposing team’s celebration.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Oh Ji-hwan, who played a lot of pitching and then shortstop in the early days, and Kim Ha-seong during his time at Nexen also went through countless trials and errors. Bo-kyung Moon tends to make fewer mistakes.” He added, “I have no intention of removing Bo-kyung Moon. Then, we will not be able to develop players. “No. We have to go out and overcome it. Both Oh Ji-hwan and Kim Ha-seong have become the best,” he said.

Coach Yeom did not forget to praise the team, saying, “I am grateful to have two senior players (Kim Hyun-soo and Oh Ji-hwan),” and “the staff also worked well (for the two players, Ko Woo-seok and Moon Bo-kyung).”

LG has Hong Chang-ki (right fielder) – Shin Min-jae (second baseman) – Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter) – Austin Dean (first baseman) – Moon Bo-kyung (third baseman) – Oh Ji-hwan (shortstop) – Park Dong-won (catcher) – Moon Seong-ju (left fielder) – Park Hae-min (center fielder) ) has compiled the best lineup. Moon Bo-kyung will start at number 5 and third baseman, the same as the previous day. The starting pitcher is right-hander Lee Jeong-yong, who has been on the rise recently.

Manager Yeom Kyeong-yeop explained his bullpen management plan, saying, “Go Woo-seok, Baek Seung-hyeon, and Kim Jin-seong, who pitched hard, will not pitch today. If the situation calls for a close, we will bring up Yoo Young-chan, or if not, we will rest him.”

Qatar coach Ilidiu, who ‘dominated’ Korea in the first game, said, “We focused on organizational skills and information warfare”

 “We focused on organizational power and analysis of Korea.”

The Qatar U-23 national team, led by coach Vale Illidiou, defeated Korea 2-0 in the first leg of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers held at the Changwon Football Center on the 6th. subdued by Since the country has already qualified to participate as the host country, the results will not be reflected in this competition.스포츠토토

Coach Ilidiu said after the game, “The performance was good. We controlled both the first and second halves. As you know, it hasn’t been long since I was supervised. “I think we were able to raise our level,” he said. “Right now, we are not the best member. But we are trying to raise our level. “I’m only thinking about improving organizationally and personally,” he said.

As Qatar is the host country, Hwang Seon-hong is the opponent he can meet in the Asian Cup finals. Coach Illidiu said, “We knew we would face Korea in advance. I also knew that Korea was a very strong team. “It was the result of our best efforts,” he said. “There wasn’t enough time to prepare. Focused on organizational skills. We analyzed Korea to help you make the right tactical choice. We focused on information warfare, and the attitude of the players led to victory. “Although Qatar won, I think Korea is a good team,” he explained.

Acting head coach Lee Jong-woon, “I’m most excited about starting Na Kyun-ahn today”

“I’m most excited about today”.

Acting Lotte head coach Lee Jong-woon highlighted the performance of Ulsan Samsung Electronics starter Na Kyun-ahn on Saturday.

Na, who was selected to the Hangzhou Asian Games team led by Ryu Jung-il, has a 6-6 record with a 3.58 ERA in 19 games this season. In his last start, against KT on March 27, he was unable to get any help from his batting lineup and suffered a loss, but he pitched seven innings of six-hit ball with nine strikeouts and two runs allowed.먹튀검증

On the current status of Koo Seung-min, who left the mound early due to right shoulder soreness during his last outing against Sajik Doosan on April 4, the manager said, “I will rest until today and play catch tomorrow. The player himself says he’s fine, but we’ll put him in when his condition improves.”

Yoon Dong-hee, who has been the main right fielder this season, felt discomfort in his right thigh and was removed from the starting lineup to protect the player. “He will rest today and play normally from tomorrow,” said acting head coach Lee Jong-woon.

In Yoon’s place, Ko Seung-min got the chance to start. “I have high hopes that he will perform well. He can also bat in the center field,” said acting manager Lee Jong-woon.

Lotte’s batting order is Jeong-hoon Jung, designated hitter Lee Jung-hoon, Ahn Chi-hong, left fielder Jeon Jun-woo, catcher Yoo Kang-nam, shortstop Gudrum, center fielder Kim Min-seok, third baseman Park Seung-wook, and right fielder Go Seung-min.

Cho Seong-kwon, captain of the U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers, “We will take the first step as a team.”

Captain Jo Seong-kwon (Gimpo) of the U-22 national soccer team, which is about to enter the first gateway to the 2024 Paris Olympics, is united as coach Hwang Seon-hong, emphasizing ‘one team’. I promised myself that I would achieve my goal.

Cho Seong-kwon, who met with reporters at the national team training held at the Changwon Soccer Center on the 5th, said, “It is a great honor to train and play with players representing the K-League,” and added, “As this is the first competition to prepare for the Olympics, I want to get off to a good start. “I prepared hard with the players,” he said.

The U-22 national team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, will begin the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers, which are the first qualifiers for the Paris Olympics, starting with the match against Qatar on the 6th. Only after passing this competition can they participate in next year’s U-23 Asian Cup finals, the final Asian qualifying round for the Paris Olympics.

In the tournament, which was the first step toward the Paris Olympics, coach Hwang entrusted the captaincy to Cho Seong-kwon, whom he had selected and watched since last year.

“Actually, I don’t know why the coach entrusted me with the captaincy, but I guess he trusted me,” said Jo Seong-kwon, who smiled awkwardly. “The coach didn’t put a lot of pressure on me, but he asked for a lot of ‘one team,’ so I shared tactics with the players and put them into practice.” “I’m trying to do it,” he said.안전놀이터

Cho Seong-kwon, a graduate of Geumho High School and Ulsan University who joined Gwangju FC last year, did not make his K-League debut in Gwangju, but was loaned to Gimpo FC in K-League 2 this year and is playing as a key defender.

Jo Seong-kwon said, “I think the most difficult thing to adapt to as a professional player was the tempo. It was difficult to keep up in the first few games, but now I have adapted a lot.” He added, “As I play, my confidence is definitely building and my senses are improving a lot.”

As the invisible competition for the Paris Olympics has begun, he expressed his ambition, saying, “I am confident that I will not lose in defensive coverage, interception, and one-on-one ability,” and “I want to show those things if I go to the game.”

Mound, performance ‘frustrating’… Manager Kim Won-hyung “We have to win with our skills”

SSG coach Kim Won-hyung’s words were filled with regret.

“We didn’t win as much as we thought in August,” he said before the team’s away game against Hanwha in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at the Daejeon Hanwha Life Eagles Park on Friday. We’re not playing as well as we thought we would,” he said, adding, “When it’s easy to win, it’s too easy, but when it’s not, it’s too hard. That’s why the losing streak is getting longer.”

SSG has recently lost four straight games, including a shocking three-game sweep at home against KIA last weekend. Prior to this game, SSG was in third place with 60 wins, one draw and 51 losses, but after recently losing the second spot to KT, even the third place is in jeopardy. The gap between them and fourth-place KIA (56 wins, 2 draws, 50 losses) is only 1.5 games.먹튀검증

SSG’s bullpen has been shaky lately. Last week, SSG’s bullpen had an ERA of 12.57. Last week, SSG lost four games, two of which were come-from-behind losses. “In the bullpen, we lost Moon Seung-won as a starter, and I feel the gap is big. Choi Min-jun is also out. Noh Kyung-eun and Ko Hyo-joon are big. They are overloaded.”

SSG is trying to revitalize the atmosphere by reorganizing the coaching staff. Coach Kim said, “We had a day off yesterday, so the players have to show their skills in the end. We have 1-3 starters for the midweek game. The starting pitchers are pitching stably, and the batters are getting better,” he said, adding, “I think we should start with a new mood from today.”
