Benjamin no-hit, Rojas two homers, five-game losing streak snapped

  They lost all week, but not until the final day. After losing three games in a row against the Hanwha Eagles in the middle of the week, KT lost two games in a row against the LG Twins. Despite playing their ace, William Cuevas, the day before, they were once again vulnerable to LG, losing 2-8 and losing five games in a row. They couldn't lose on the 9th. KT started Wes Benjamin, who had a strong showing against LG on that day, while LG used substitute Lee Woo-chan due to an injury to Im Chan-kyu. “When the substitutes come in, we need to score early,” said KT coach Lee Kang-cheol, who paid particular attention to the batting lineup. The batting order was different than usual. Kang Baek-ho was used in right field, while catcher Jang Sung-woo, designated hitter Moon Sang-chul, and first baseman Oh Jae-il were all used in the lineup, creating a batting lineup centered on hitting. The starting lineup was Rojas (left fielder)-Hwang Jae-gyun (third baseman)-Kang Baek-ho (right fielder)

KKKKKKKKKKK Lost by 153 kilometers, bitter after 46 days

  Forty-six days and a bitter taste. Kiwoom Heroes foreign pitcher Enmanuel De Jesus started the 11th game of the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League against the Samsung Lions at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, South Korea, on April 9. In 12 appearances this season, De Jesus had a 7-3 record with a 3.44 ERA. He made one start for Samsung. On May 29 against Daegu, he gave up four runs on six hits, three walks, one home run, and four strikeouts in five innings, but was able to pick up the win with the help of his bats. He is tied for first in wins and sixth in ERA. The first inning was a bit shaky. After giving up a leadoff double to Ryu Ji-hyeok and striking out Lee Sung-kyu, he gave up an RBI single to Koo Ja-ook. He then struck out Park Byung-ho and then tagged out Koo as he attempted to steal to escape further damage. After a three-hit shutout inning in the second, Heisus showed his dominance in the third, striking out Jeon Byung-woo, Kim Jae-hyuk, and Ahn Joo-hyung. His 150-plus-kilomet

“Son Heung-min is very tidy” SON's 'best friend' reveals surprise confession

  They were expected to win the title, but it didn't happen. “Ben Davies has expressed his disappointment with the season in an interview,” said the UK's The Voice Hotspur, which follows Tottenham Hotspur news. “I thought this season was our time,” he told the Business of Sport, “but football is a very difficult industry to win. But football is a very difficult business to win. Spending big money doesn't guarantee results,” he explained. Spurs have a long history of irrelevance. They haven't lifted a single official trophy since winning the English Carling Cup (the predecessor to the Carabao Cup) in 2007-08. Since then, Spurs have risen to the mid-table of the Premier League and invested a lot of money, but still no trophies. Then, this season, it looked like things were really going to happen. New head coach Enze Postecoglou's team went unbeaten in the first 10 games of the season, playing a strong attacking style of soccer. This allowed Tottenham to climb to the t

'Son Heung-min 2x' Tottenham club record, shabby goodbye

  Tottenham Hotspur are set to release Tanguy Ndombele on a free transfer. The UK's Evening Standard reported on Monday (June 9) that “Tottenham will let club record signing Ndombele go on a free. Ndombele, who has not played for Spurs for more than two years since January 2022, has spent time on loan at Napoli and Galatasaray. Ndombele, who has made 91 appearances for Spurs, will leave as a free agent with one year remaining on his contract." Ndombele remains the worst signing in Tottenham's history. Ndombele joined Tottenham from Lyon for €62 million, and five years later, it's still the club's most expensive transfer. There have been other big names in the game, such as Alexandre Lacazette (€58 million), Brennan Johnson (€55 million), Cristian Romero (€52 million), and James Maddison (€46.3 million), but none of them have been able to surpass Ndombele. Son Heung-min is 16th on the list with €30 million. Ndombele came in with huge expectations and lost the trust

'Good news for Man Utd': Benfica to sell 'next Bruno Fernandes'

  Good news for Manchester United. SL Benfica are expected to reduce the transfer fee for the 'next Bruno Fernandez' Joao Neves. “Contrary to other reports that Benfica will stick to Neves' release clause, the club will consider selling him if it receives an offer of at least £86 million ($151 million),” said Duncan Castle, a reporter for The Times. This season, United have had a successful campaign in their own right. They finished eighth in the English Premier League (EPL), won the FA Cup, and qualified for next season's UEFA Europa League (UEL). However, if there is a problem, it's in the midfield. United have had major problems in the back three this season. Casemiro, who joined from Real Madrid last season, hasn't been at his best due to an aging curve, while Christian Eriksen, Mason Mount, and Sofiane Amrabat have been limited by injuries and poor form. Therefore, United are looking to sign a midfielder. Their target is Neves. Neves is a defensive midfield

'Coming Back from Injury to Explode for 12th Home Run of the Season' Han Yoo-seom

  SSG Landers' Han Yoo-seom (35) showed off his power in his comeback game.  Starting in the No. 5 spot in the lineup against the Samsung Lions in the 2024 Shinhan Bank SOL Bank KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on Thursday, Han went 1-for-2 with a double, a home run, two RBIs, three runs scored, one walk and one strikeout. In the bottom of the second inning, Han Yoo-seom drew a walk to lead off the inning. Ha Jae-hoon followed with an RBI double and Han Yoo-seom came home to score. It was the first run of the game. With SSG up 2-0 in the top of the third inning, Won Tae-in, Samsung's right-handed starter, lifted a 127-kilometer-per-hour changeup over the right-center field fence for a two-run home run. The ball traveled 125 meters. It was his 12th home run of the season. After leading off the sixth inning with a strikeout, Han Yoo-seom led off the seventh inning with a walk. She then came home on Oh's two-run homer, her third of the game.  Prior to this game, Han

2.53 ERA' Wheeler 'leads NL in Cy Young mock voting!

 Five wins and a 0.96 ERA. If there's one pitcher in the major leagues who's been on the rise this season, it's Shota Imanaga (Chicago Cubs). Imanaga started a game against the Atlanta Braves on April 14 and had a rough outing, giving up seven hits and three walks over five innings, but he was able to get out of the jam and keep the game scoreless. Although he didn't get the win, as his team lost 0-2, he did get his ERA back down to zero. At this point, it seems like Imanaga should be a lock for the National League Rookie of the Year award, as well as a frontrunner in the Cy Young Award race. However, the experts have a different opinion. On Thursday, released the results of its mock Cy Young Award voting for both leagues. The poll was conducted by 41 participants, who each voted for five pitchers from both leagues, giving them five points for first place, four points for second place, three points for third place, three points for fourth place, two points for f
