Eight-game winning streak for KIA

Now looks like third place Kium’s ‘pepper squad’ emerges

The Kia Tigers have their sights set on higher ground, having jumped to fourth place with a recent eight-game winning streak.

KIA has won its last eight games in a row, including a four-game sweep last week (Aug. 29-Sept. 3).

KIA (56 wins, 2 draws, 50 losses), 카지노사이트 which was in sixth place until last month 26th, leapfrogged the Doosan Bears (55 wins, 1 draw, 54 losses) to fifth place and then knocked the NC Dinos (57 wins, 2 draws, 51 losses) down to fourth. Only 1.5 games separate KIA from third-place SSG Landers (60 wins, 1 draw, 51 losses).

KIA has the potential to make a big jump to the top of the standings, as they have a good batting lineup and team chemistry.

In particular, Na Sung-beom and Park Chan-ho are leading the hot bats, while ace Yang Hyun-jong has been the centerpiece of the starting lineup as he has been pitching well lately.

KIA will play a three-game series against the Doosan Bears at Jamsil Stadium starting on April 5, and then play four games in Gwangju starting on April 8, 온라인카지노 including a doubleheader against the LG Twins.

KIA has been weak against Dusan this year, going 3-7, and strong against LG, going 5-5.

Kiwoom, who are unlikely to make the postseason, went 4-1 last week. The team has been playing the role of a “pepper squad” (a lower-ranked team that prevents a higher-ranked team from winning).

In particular, Kiwoom won all three games against second-place KT Wiz last week, halting their opponent’s momentum.

KT failed to overtake the first-place LG Twins as they were held back by Kiwoom. Losing back-to-back games to a lower-ranked team late in the season can be devastating for a top team in a tight race.

Kiwoom’s Kim Hye-seong and Ronnie Dawson lead the batting lineup, while Ahn Woo-jin and Ariel Furado lead the pitching staff. Their focus, especially in tight situations, has made them a force to be reckoned with for the top teams.

Kiwoom will play a three-game series against the NC Dinos, who have dropped to fifth place, before facing the last-place Hanwha Eagles on the weekend.

First-place LG and second-place KT will go head-to-head at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on May 5.

LG and KT are 5-5 against each other this year, so the three-game series is expected to be a battle.

LG will start Won-tae Choi on the mound on the 5th, looking for a win. With ace Adam Plutko out for an extended period of time with a pelvic injury, the roles of Choi, Kelly, and Lim Chan-kyu will be crucial.

KT will try to snap a five-game losing streak against LG with William Cuevas, 카지노사이트존 who won his last five starts in August.

KT is in a severe batting slump and needs to regain its hitting touch.

‘KIA Rising Star’ Kim Do-Young

“Behind Me, Legends Na Sung-Bum and Choi Hyung-Woo, No Pressure”

KIA’s Kim Do-young hits a single with no outs in the top of the third inning during the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ game between the KIA Tigers and KT Wiz at KT Wiz Park in Jangan-gu, Suwon, on Aug. 24.

Second-year infielder Kim Do-young (20) of the KIA Tigers has been leading the team’s recent upswing from the front.

On Aug. 3, Kim batted second and played third base in an away game against the SSG Landers in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon, South Korea, going 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs, two runs scored, 한국야동 two walks and one stolen base to lead the Tigers to an 8-6 victory.

With Kim’s performance, KIA won its eighth straight game for the first time in 751 days since July 1-August 13, 2021. They also leapfrogged the NC Dinos into sole possession of fourth place in the standings, further boosting their chances of making the postseason.

Kim Do-young drew a bases-loaded walk in the first inning and scored on Choi Hyung-woo’s RBI single. He popped out to center field in the third, but with the score tied at 4-4 in the fifth, he lined a single to center field and used his quick feet to steal second base.

After drawing another walk in the seventh with the bases loaded, Kim roared to the plate to lead off the ninth inning of a 7-6 comeback and hit a game-winning solo shot off reliever Lee Roon.

Kim, who joined KIA in the first round last year, was hailed as the “next Lee Jong-beom” at Gwangju Dongseong High School.

He was highly touted ahead of the 2022 season as the top hitter in the exhibition games, but once the season got underway, he hit a professional wall.

His quick feet made him a standout on the basepaths, but his bat never really took off. He ended up batting .237 (224-for-53) with three home runs, 19 RBIs, 13 doubles, and 37 runs scored last year.

This year’s season got off to a rocky start with injuries. On April 2, he fractured his metatarsal while charging home against SSG and was sidelined for more than three months.

Kim Do-young.

Kim, who only returned to the field on June 23, has been on fire since then. He is batting .308 (195-for-60) with three home runs, 25 RBIs, 15 doubles and 46 runs scored, surpassing his numbers from last year in all categories.

With Kim, who usually bats second, providing a steady stream of runs, the center field lineup of Na Sung-beom, 성인웹툰 Choi Hyung-woo, and Socrates Brito has provided a significant boost to KIA’s overall offense.

Prior to Kim’s arrival, KIA’s team batting average was just .259, but it rose to .293 after his arrival. Since his return, the team’s winning percentage is 0.622 (28 wins, 1 draw, 17 losses).

Kim Do-young, who has been at the center of the team’s recent surge, said, “I’m just giving it my all every game. I’m really honored to be at the center of the team’s good flow,” said Kim.

“I think it helps that I had a lot of experiences last year, such as trying a lot of things,” said Kim, who said that her recent performance has washed away the frustrations of bad days. I kept my mentality positive, and the results were good.”

“Lately, the hitters have been talking to each other about ‘I don’t think I’m going to lose’. We try to hit more confidently when we hear people around us say, ‘We’re hitting well,'” he said, adding, “I’m scared of our team’s batting. I don’t know how far we can go,” he laughed.

Kim also gave credit to his teammates for supporting him.

“Even if I can’t hit, I can go into the batter’s box with confidence because there are seniors (Na Sung-bum and Choi Hyung-woo) behind me,” he said, adding, 19가이드03 “It’s really nice to have legendary seniors with me.”

Men’s volleyball fails at VNL-Asian

Championships, eventually recalls 3 AG medalists

Han named to 12-man squad for Hangzhou Asian Games
Bronze medal at the 2010 and 2014 Games Silver medal in 2018

Han (38-Korean Air) is back to save South Korean men’s volleyball from the brink. The three-time Asian Games medalist is poised to lead Korea’s volleyball revival in Hangzhou.

Men’s volleyball head coach Lim Do-heon included Han in the 12-player roster for the men’s volleyball team at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, 섯다 which was announced on March 30.

Han, one of the best setters in South Korean volleyball, has been recalled after missing the squad due to an unstable knee condition and a generational shift.

Without Han, the men’s volleyball team struggled in the tournament. South Korea finished third at the 2023 Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Challenge Cup for mid-tier Asian nations in July, losing to Bahrain in the semifinals. This ended their return to the FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) after a six-year absence. 온라인섯다 South Korea also tried to win the title at the Asian Volleyball Championship last month, but lost to China in the quarterfinals and finished fifth.

Head coach Lim Do-heon announced a generational change by giving 27-year-old Hwang Taek-ui the captaincy and starting setter instead of Han, but it didn’t work. South Korea received a passing grade for their power with Hsu Bong, but they lacked the experience to win the game at crucial moments.

Lim had no choice but to call up Han again. With the Hangzhou Asian Games coming up this month, he could no longer save Han’s card. “For the Asian Games, we need results, so we need to fill in the gaps,” Lim said in an interview at the Jincheon National Training Center in June.

Han is arguably the best setter in professional volleyball’s V-League men’s division. Despite being in his mid-30s, Han’s tossing and game management skills dominate younger setters, leading his team Korean Air to the overall title for three consecutive seasons. Hwang Taek-ui surpassed Han as the top setter for three consecutive seasons starting in 2020-2021, but Han still holds the title as the best setter in the V-League.

Han has also been strong in international competition. At the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, 카지노사이트랭크 she played as a backup to current KEPCO coach Kwon Young-min and helped the team win a bronze medal. At the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, he captained the team to a bronze medal. At the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang, he made it all the way to the final before losing to Iran for the silver medal.

It shouldn’t be hard for Han to fit in with the national team. Han has a long history of working with the current Korean Air players, who are the mainstay of the national team. Outside hitters Jung Jeong-seok and Kwak Seung-seok, outside hitter Im Dong-hyuk, and middle blockers Kim Kyu-min and Kim Min-jae all hit the ball for Korean Air.

The concern is Han’s knee. Han played through a knee injury this spring on her way to her third consecutive overall title. After focusing on rehabilitation, he was only able to step on the court last month at the Cobo Cup 2023. Han expressed his desire to play for the national team after being named the men’s regular season MVP in April. At the time, Han said, “I’m always willing to play (for the national team) if they need me. Until my body is exhausted,” but added, “I have to check my physical condition. My knee is pretty bad. I want to help as much as I can,” he said.

The men’s volleyball team has been training at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village since March 31. The team is scheduled to travel to Hangzhou for the final match on Sept. 16.

South Korea is in Group C with India and Cambodia in the men’s volleyball event at the Asian Games. The Korean men’s volleyball team will begin their hunt for Asian Games gold against India on Aug. 20 and Cambodia on 고스톱 Aug. 21. South Korea’s men’s volleyball team will be looking to win gold at the Asian Games for the first time in 17 years since the 2006 Doha Games.

NC blasts 18 hits, 12 runs…Doosan 5-hole winning percentage collapses

The NC Dinos ravaged the Doosan mound with a strong batting lineup.

The NC Dinos won the 12th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Doosan Bears 12-5 on Tuesday at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul.

NC avenged the previous day’s loss to improve to 52 wins, two ties, and 48 losses on the season. Doosan, on the other hand, fell to 50 wins, one draw and 51 losses. The five-percent win rate collapsed again within a day.

The home team lined up in the following order: Park Kye-beom (second base), Kim Jae-ho (shortstop), Jose Rojas (right field), Yang Seok-hwan (designated hitter), Kim Jae-hwan (left field), Kang Seung-ho (first base), Park Jun-young (third base), Jang Seung-hyun (catcher), and Cho Sun-hyun (center field). Center fielder Jung Soo-bin was rested due to a thigh injury, so Park Kye-beom batted first and Cho played center field.

NC countered with Son Asub (right fielder), Park Min-woo (second baseman), Park Gun-woo (designated hitter), Jason Martin (center fielder), Kwon Hee-dong (left fielder), Seo Ho-cheol (third baseman), Yoon Hyung-joon (first baseman), Kim Joo-won (shortstop), and Ahn Jung-yeol (catcher).
From the first pitch, it was all NC. In the top of the first inning, Son As-seob singled to center field against Doosan starter Kwak Bin’s first pitch. Park Min-woo followed with an 8-pitch grounder to the second baseman to help Son advance to third, and after a wild pitch, Park Gun-woo scored the game’s first run with a single.

Doosan countered in the second inning. Kim Jae-hwan led off with a walk and Kang Seung-ho followed with a double to put runners on second and third. Park Jun-young’s grounder to shortstop resulted in a throwing error by shortstop Kim Joo-won, allowing Kim to score the tying run. Kang Seung-ho moved to third and Park to second.

The scoring continued for Doosan. Jang Seung-hyun calmly hit a grounder to the second baseman to score the tying run, and Cho Sung-hyun followed with a single up the middle. Doosan took a 3-1 lead.

NC did not back down. In the top of the third inning, Ahn Jung-yeol led off the comeback with a solo home run. Ahn took a five-pitch high slider (139 mph) from Kwak Bin at 2B-2S and blasted a solo shot to left field. It was his third home run of the season, his first in nearly two months since June 8 against Daegu Samsung Electronics.

The fourth inning was a promising one. Martin led off with a solo home run to tie the game at 3-3. Martin watched Kwak Bin’s first pitch and then took advantage of a two-pitch changeup (129 kilometers) for a solo home run to tie the game. It was his 13th homer of the season in four games since he hit one against Hanwha in Changwon on May 15.

Kwon Hee-dong then singled, Yoon Hyung-joon grounded into a fielder’s choice to put runners on second and third, and after a wild pitch, Kim Joo-won hit an RBI single off reliever Lee Young-ha for the winning run. It was the game-winning hit.

The NC bats came alive again in the seventh inning. Son As-seop led off with a single to left and then Park Min-woo followed with a run-scoring double. A sacrifice bunt by Park and a walk by Martin put runners on first and third, and Kwon Hee-dong doubled to center to widen the gap.

Doosan would not go away. In the seventh, after a leadoff walk, Kim Jae-ho and Yang Seok-hwan singled to left to load the bases, and Kim Jae-hwan followed with an RBI double. However, a wild pitch ended the second and third base chances as pinch-hitter Kim In-tae struck out swinging.

NC did not stand still. In the top of the eighth, Ahn Jung-yeol led off with a single to left, followed by Son Asub’s RBI double and Park Min-woo’s RBI triple. After Park Geon-woo was retired on a grounder to shortstop, Martin drove in the winning run with an RBI double.

NC celebrated the victory with a solo home run to left field by Kim Joo-won in the top of the ninth. It was Kim’s seventh home run of the season, his first in nearly two months, against Doosan’s Lee Byung-hun on June 14 in Changwon. Park Young-bin followed with his first career hit with a two-run double, while Park Dae-on, the bases-loaded third baseman, hit a sacrifice fly.

NC starter Tanner Tully earned his first win in the KBO with six innings of seven hits, one walk, four strikeouts and three runs (one earned). He was followed by Kim Si-hoon, Kim Young-kyu, Ryu Jin-wook, Lee Yong-chan, and Lim Jung-ho. At the plate, Son was the star of the show, going 4-for-5 with a home run, one RBI and three runs scored. Martin had three hits, including a home run, and Park Min-woo, Kwon Hee-dong, Kim Joo-won, and Ahn Jung-yeol provided support with multi-hit performances.

Meanwhile, Doosan starter Kwak Bin suffered his sixth loss of the season (nine wins) after giving up four runs on seven hits (two home runs) in 3⅔ innings, walking one and striking out four. After reaching the nine-win plateau against Hanwha in Daejeon on April 1, they failed to reach 10 wins in three consecutive games. Kim Jae-ho and Rojas’ two hits were the only bright spots in the loss.

After a day off, NC will play a three-game midweek series against SSG in Incheon on the 22nd. Doosan travels to Gochuk to face Kiwoom. 토토사이트
