Buster Posey Beats Rockies

Buster Posey had been a maze for Colorado Rockies and so the Sa Francisco’s star starting pitching.

Buster hit his game-ending 2-run shot in his 3rd homer in 2 nights, sending Giants past Colorado 4-2 last Wednesday that marked the 1,600th managerial triumph for Bruce Bochy.

Posey sent 0-1 pitch right from Nicasio just inside left-field foul-pole for a match that was his eighteenth homer in 2014 & 2nd career walkoff homer. The man had his first last year in May, against Dodgers.

“He is surely locked in”, stated Walt Weiss, the Colorado manager. “He has been a huge hitter for long and of he is locked in, it is really hard to get Posey out.”

Casilla, who was sick on Tuesday, dropped leadoff hitter Stubbs at the back for starting the 9th. Morneau (Justin) doubled him to home leading to game tie at 2.

Bochy was very sympathetic about Santiago. “He did not let the match get away”{, remarked Bochy. “I compliment Santiago for maintaining his poise throughout.”

Hudson’s great 8 inning, 8-strikeout outing was completely wasted the very night the veteran right-hander player reached on 2,000th strikeout mark as he fanned Morales (Franklin) in the 6th.

Buster followed his 2-home run showmanship a night before with his go-ahead single performance I the 7th inning- followed by an even larger hit. The star player has safely hit in twelve of his last 13 games.

After Bumgarner’s (Madison) single-hit gem inn 3-0 triumph Tuesday, Tim had his very own great outing. The right hander didn’t permit a hit till Dickerson (Corey) led off 5th with a splashing home-run into Cove. That marked the hundredth homer into bay on fifteenth-year ballpark history & thirty-fourth by visiting squad. Gonzalez hit the Colorado’s other two.

“I was on the lookout of a baseball & fortunately got one & had a great swing”, said Dickerson.

Go Team USA!

Pyeongchang All Set To Welcome Winter Olympics 2018

Pyeongchang is extremely happy and is all set to welcome Winter Olympics 2018. The famous South-Korean resort was also eager to host the event 4 years back in place of Vancouver as well the Sochi event 2 month ago but unfortunately lost out on a few votes.

“It was really difficult for me to return after the 2nd loss & convince people to take to another bid”, stated Kim Sun, the president of the organizing committee. “People were naturally disappointed & feeling let down. They’re actually feeling skeptical. It was like why would we need to bring Games here? However, as we lost out on just a few votes, IOC persuaded us for one more bid.”

Koreans are quite a persistent bunch & much to their pleasure Pyeongchang finally won the bid for 2018 Winter Olympics over Munich.

After a couple of decades in Europe & North America, the Olympics has decided to focus on the oriental angle for Winter Games. Before South Korea, Japan was the only Asian nation to host Olympics – the Nippon land  had the honor of being the Olympics host twice.

Pyeongchang’s theme this time is “New Horizons” and the recent qualification as the latest Winter Olympics host can be speculated to create huge upsurge across the country.

“Asia is tad underdeveloped in regards to winter sports while compared to the other continents”, remarked Kim.

“The evidence lies in medal list- Asian nations have just won 7 golds at Sochi. South Koreans came up with 3 golds & 8 medals overall- 6 fewer to what they achieved in 2010.

“We understand that it’s really significant to come up with a strong Forean team”, admitted Kim. That likely would not happen had the country not given the opportunity to host the Games. South Korea has already built 5 ice facilities & improved snow venue recently which would definitely spell boon for Korean Winter Olympic squad.
