7/10 Roundup and News

I read about this, meant to blog it and totally forgot. The SK Wyverns have cut pitcher Jim Magrane and purchased the contract of right-handed pitcher Brian Gordon from the New York Yankees.

Doosan/Samsung and Nexen/Hanhwa were both completely washed out yesterday. SK and Lotte tried to get the game in, but it wound up getting rained out before it was official. The guy who really suffered? Lee Dae-ho. Lee had his 21st homer wiped out by the rainstorm.

KIA 6, LG 2
W - Aquilino Lopez (10-3), L - Ben Jukich (5-4)
KIA HR - Kim Sang-hyeon (10)
LG HR - Cho In-seong (14)

KIA starter Aquilino Lopez has to be in the discussion for a KBO Golden Glove this year. I don't think he should win, yet, but he's in the discussion. Lopez threw eight innings(91 pitches, 61 strikes) and gave up only two runs. Only LG catcher Cho In-seong was able to get to him with a two-run bomb in the seventh inning. Lopez gave up two hits and a hit batsman while striking out five. Lopez recorded 12 outs via the ground ball.

KIA left fielder Kim Sang-hyeon broke a scoreless tie with a RBI single in the fourth inning. Kim also homered while going 2-4 with a walk, a run scored and two RBIs.

The Tigers also rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh. Most of the damage came on a two-run single from second baseman Ahn Chi-hong.

LG starter Ben Jukich actually threw the ball pretty well, but seemed to run out of gas. Throwing in relief earlier in the week and then throwing 120 pitches will do that. Jukich tossed 6 1/3 innings(120 pitches, 74 strikes) and gave up four runs. Jukich allowed six hits and two walks while striking out seven.
