The ninth-ranked KT (30 wins, 42 losses, 1 draw) finished three consecutive games during the week with 2 wins and 1 loss and chased the eighth-ranked Lotte (30 wins, 39 losses, 2 draws).

On the day, KT and Lotte had a heated competition, hitting four and three home runs, respectively. Both teams have hit consecutive homeruns.

Lotte tied the game dramatically with two home runs in the top of the ninth inning, which was pulled 4-6.

After one out, Ko Seung-min sent closer Park Young-hyun’s fastball over the right-center fence, and the next batter, Son Ho-young, drew a solo arch to the left.

With this home run, Son Ho-young succeeded in hitting 30 consecutive games and tied for third place in this category with Kim Jae-hwan (Doosan Bears).

However, Lotte collapsed on its own.

Shortstop Park Seung-wook allowed leadoff hitter Kim Sang-soo to get on base due to a catch error, and Mel Rojas Jr. created a chance to second and third base with a double to the left.

Lotte closer Kim Won-joong allowed a run by intentionally skipping Kang Baek-ho and throwing a wild pitch to Moon Sang-chul.

Moon Sang-chul pulled the curve of Lotte starter Kim Jin-wook and hit a left-wall solo shot, and the next batter Jang Sung-woo hit a fastball to draw a mid-wall arch.

Lotte, which responded with Son Sung-bin’s solo shot in the third inning, succeeded in turning the game around 3-2 with Yoon Dong-hee and Park Seung-wook’s consecutive timely hit to the left in the top of the fourth inning with two outs and runners on first and second bases.

As the next batter, Choi Hang, was out on a ground ball to the first base, no additional score came out.

For Lotte, it was regrettable that it used up the opportunity to read the video.

KT turned the game around with two home runs in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Leading hitter Jang Sung-woo hit consecutive at-bats home runs over the left-center fence, and Oh Yoon-seok drew a superior solo arch after two outs.

The two teams exchanged a point in the sixth inning, and KT added a point in the eighth inning.

Lotte manager Kim Tae-hyung was sent off in the top of the eighth inning while protesting against a defensive interference decision that came out with one out and a runner on first base.

When Lotte Seo Dong-wook hit a ground ball, it was originally judged as first baseman Kim Dong-hyuk’s second base out and Seo Dong-wook’s first base safe, but the video review recognized Lotte’s defense interference and was reversed to a double play.

The referee explained, “Since the feet of the runner who was out at second base were heard and touched the body of the defender, we recognize it as a defensive interference and declare the batter out.”
