NC won 4-3 in a visiting game of the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 22nd.

NC, which suffered a sweep of losses to the KIA Tigers in three consecutive games last weekend, changed the mood with this consecutive victory.

The game was decided in a video review in the top of the ninth inning when the score was 3-3.

NC Kim Sung-wook pulled closer Joo Seung-woo’s fastball with two outs and no runners, and the ball flew to the left outfield fence.

At this time, a spectator in the stands caught the ball falling near the fence in his glove.

Kiwoom immediately requested a video review. The intention was that without interference from spectators, the ball could have hit the fence and hit the ground.

However, the home run decision was maintained, and this became the final hit.

As if it were a showdown between the first starters, the game was played in quick succession.

Kyle Hart (NC) and Ariel Hurado (Kium) had a “March of Zero” on the electronic display, allowing only four hits side by side until the fifth inning.

It was NC who broke the close balance.

With two outs and no runners in the sixth inning, Davidson hit a high fastball 150 kilometers per hour to draw a mid-wall arch with a driving distance of 135 meters. It was his 11th homer of this season.

NC took a chance with one out and third base in the seventh inning with Han Seok-hyun’s hit ball and stolen base, and Kiwoom catcher Kim Jae-hyun’s bad pitch to second base.

The next batter Kim Joo-won’s eaten hit became a lucky timely hit that fell in front of the right side of the left field.

NC added another point by combining Do Tae-hoon’s hit and Son Ah-seop’s ground ball against the changed pitcher Kim Jae-woong.

Kiwoom, which scored one run in the bottom of the seventh inning, tied the game 3-3 by tapping NC’s second pitcher Kim Young-kyu in the eighth inning.

Ronnie Dawson hit a double in the middle, Song Sung-moon hit a double on the right-field line, and Lee Joo-hyung brought Dawson home with a groundout.

The follow-up hitter Choi Joo-hwan brought the game back to square one with a timely hit to the right.

NC barely put out the fire as Ryu Jin-wook, who was put up as a firefighter, caught Kim Hye-sung and Bae Sang-kwon as pinch hitters.

NC, which was on the verge of a come-from-behind defeat, revived with Kim Sung-wook’s solo shot in the top of the ninth inning.

NC was on the verge of loading the bases with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning as Lee Yong-chan was shaken, but Lim Jung-ho was able to protect the victory thanks to his groundout of the last batter, Lee Joo-hyung.

Hearts failed to secure victory despite pitching well, allowing six hits, one walk and one run (one earned) in seven innings with the highest number of pitches (109) in a single game.
