LG had lost all four games against KIA until the previous day. Moreover, LG lagged behind KIA in terms of weight. While Kim Yoon-sik, who took the mound for the first time for LG this season, took the mound as starter, Kia’s ace pitcher James Nail was the starting pitcher. Nail had won four games and been undefeated with an earned run average of 1.14.

In fact, it was Kia’s clear pace until the middle of the game. LG allowed the first run in the first inning, but Kia scored four points in the top of the third inning, as its third baseman stepped on the home ground when Kim Do-young’s come-from-behind two-run double, Lee Chang-jin’s timely hit, and Kim Sun-bin’s ground ball. KIA also had one more run in the top of the fourth inning when its relief pitcher Kim Dae-hyun threw a wild pitch, leading the game 5-1.

It was Shin Min-jae’s foot that turned the mood around. With runners on second and one out in the bottom of the fifth inning, Shin struck out against Nail. However, the ball bounced into catcher Kim Tae-gun’s glove and fell to the ground, resulting in a strikeout-not-out state. After catching the ball, Kim rushed to first base while throwing it to Nail without much thought, and quickly stepped on the first base. For LG, the situation where the ball would be at second base with two outs led to a chance with one out and runners on first and second base. With the ball hit by the next batter Hong Chang-ki, LG loaded the bases with one out.

Sky also helped LG. The second batter Park Hae-min hit a grounder to the second base, but he made a lucky two-run timely hit as he bounced off an irregular bound right in front of the second baseman. With runners at the first and second bases with two outs, Moon hit a timely hit, making it 4-5, and even a point.

KIA ran away with one point again in the top of the sixth inning, but LG showed strong concentration once again in the bottom of the sixth inning. With the team trailing 4-6, Shin hit a timely hit to center field to catch up with one point again. With the two outs and runners on the first and second bases, Park hit a timely hit to right field to tie the game. While Park stepped on the first base and got caught in a run-down between the first and second bases, Shin, who was the first baseman, rushed home without looking back and turned the game around 7-6.

Fast-footed Shin Min-jae scored two hits and two runs in four at-bats, and Park Hae-min led the attack with three hits and three RBIs in four at-bats.

Starting pitcher Kim Yun-sik collapsed early, but LG minimized the number of lost runs during the remaining innings due to strong bullpen pitcher lineup. On the day, LG deployed all seven pitchers to face off against Nail. Finisher Yoo took the mound with two outs and a runner on the first base in the top of the eighth inning, allowing one hit, one walk and two strikeouts in one and one third of innings, and winning his fifth save of the season.

Doosan beat Hanwha 10-5 in an away game against Daejeon by hitting 13 hits, including homers by Yang Seok-hwan and Yang Eui-ji. Doosan right-hander Kim Yu-seong, who debuted last year, won his first professional game by allowing three hits and two runs in five innings in his first start of this season. In contrast, Hwang Joon-seo, a rookie at the Hanwha Eagles who joined as the top overall pick, became a losing pitcher by allowing six runs in three and two thirds of innings.

Hanwha set a new KBO league record in this category by selling out 13 consecutive games with 12,000 spectators, but lost six consecutive games.

Samsung defeated Kiwoom 3-0. Starting pitcher Won Tae-in pitched well with two hits, eight strikeouts and no runs in seven innings, while setup man Kim Jae-yoon and closer Oh Seung-hwan each pitched in one inning to secure a shutout of the team. Making his eighth save of the season, Oh recorded 408 saves in the KBO League, surpassing Hitoki Iwase’s record 407 saves in the 1999-2018 Japanese pro baseball league. Kiwoom has been mired in a five-game losing streak.
