SSG Kim Kwang-hyun, who made a surprise return to Korea from the major leagues, is showing what kind of pitcher he is. Yesterday (27th) threw 100 balls and struck out 10 only. He also lowered his ERA to 0.36 to take the top spot in the league. Let’s take a look at sports news this morning & with reporter Lee Do-seong.
Did Kim Kwang-hyeon show performance like the nickname KK?
When he was playing in the United States, Kim Kwang-hyun was called KK.
Although it is derived from the English name ‘Kwang-Hyun Kim’, it is praised as ‘a pitcher who strikes out well’, made by adding the English initial K twice in the baseball record.
Yesterday, we played a game where you can see why it’s called KK.
It’s the team’s batting average, which puts down Lotte’s batting line.
He threw just 100 balls up to the 6th inning and struck out 10.
He turned the batters around by mixing a fastball approaching 150 km/h with a high-speed slider.
Although he conceded one point for two consecutive defensive errors, it was recorded as a non-ERA, and he lowered the ERA from 0.47 to 0.36, pushing out Lotte Barnes and taking the top spot in the league.
That means he averaged only 0.36 points when counted as full nine innings.
SSG and Lotte showed off a luxury pitching match where 12 pitchers from both teams appeared on the pitch and did not give each other a single point after the 4th inning, drawing a 1-1 draw after overtime.
Yesterday, there was a player who raised his hands toward his opponent and made a heart. Why did he do that during the match?
It came from a match between LG and Samsung.
Samsung Pirella threw herself to catch a hit hit by LG Park Hae-min, who took the lead in the early 3rd inning.
Park Hae-min looked at him for a while with a disappointed expression and then applauded Pirella.
Pirella waved her hand as if to say good-bye, then suddenly raised her hands and sent a heart sign above her head.
In fact, the two players are teammates who played together at Samsung until last year.
After changing the uniform this season, Park Hae-min, who visited Samsung’s home stadium for the first time, erased the hit and showed affection.
Hae-min Park, who swallowed his disappointment, came out as the lead batter in the 8th and announced the start of the attack with an infield hit.
Let’s take a look at the news of spring basketball and professional basketball in the midst of the post season. KGC Ginseng Corporation defeated KT to advance to the championship game, but scored the final goal with 0.8 seconds left?
It was the fourth round of the playoffs.
KGC, who gave up the first game, raised the atmosphere by winning the second and third games.
In the final fourth quarter of Game 4, with 20 seconds remaining, the score was tied 79-79.
And KGC Byun Jun-hyeong broke through the KT defense and fired a layup shot that shook the net.
It was the final goal with 0.8 seconds left in the game.
KT’s last shot went over the post, and KGC advanced to the Champions League final.
KGC, which was also the winner of last year, will start a match against SK, the top team in the regular league, to determine the winner next week.
According to the All England Lawn Tennis Club, which hosts Wimbledon.
The British government has relaxed quarantine guidelines so that you can participate in the competition even if you do not have the COVID-19 vaccine.
Djokovic tried to compete in the Australian Open, the first major event of the year, in January, but was canceled because he did not receive the vaccine and did not meet the exemption requirements.
He even fought a court battle, but in the end he could not step on the court and was expelled from Australia.
Djokovic, an anti-vaccine opponent, has previously stated that he will not participate in other major tournaments if vaccination is enforced.
However, with the easing of quarantine measures in the UK, it is possible to aim for a fourth consecutive Wimbledon title.
Nadal’s win at the Australian Open is another challenge for the most wins in majors.
