# Kiwoom succeeded in suppressing the baseline, and SSG immediately counterattacked…

Kiwoom was the first team to laugh after Choi Joo-hwan’s 20th home run of the season . Kiwoom created an opportunity to load the bases with no outs in the top of the first inning with consecutive hits by Kim Hye-seong and Dawson and a walk by Lee Joo-hyung. Then, Kim Hwi-jip’s sacrifice fly RBI scored one run. However, with one out and runners on first and third base, Song Seong-moon retired due to a double play and was unable to score any additional points.

SSG, which overcame the crisis with the minimum number of goals conceded, immediately balanced the situation. In the bottom of the first inning, leadoff hitter Choo Shin-soo got on base with a walk, then Choi Ji-hoon’s advanced hit and Han Yu-seom’s hit put the team on 1st and 3rd bases with one out. Then, Heredia came out to bat and hit a timely hit with an RBI, tying the score at 1-1.

SSG succeeded in turning the tables in the bottom of the second inning. Leadoff hitter Choi Joo-hwan scooped Jurado’s low 129 km/h curve in 2B2S. The batted ball passed over the right wall. Choi Joo-hwan turned the tide with his 20th home run of the season.

# After overcoming the crisis , Kiwoom, the home team of Hanyu Island, had a chance to score in the top of the third inning. Park Chan-hyuk hit and Kim Hye-seong reached base with a walk, leaving the team on first and second base with no outs. But Dawson struck out and retired. Lee Joo-hyung then failed to capitalize on the opportunity with a double play. Kiwoom was out at first base and requested a safety video review, but the umpire declared the player out.

Kiwoom had another opportunity to score in the top of the 5th inning. Leadoff hitter Park Soo-jong hit a hit. However, Park Soo-joing was out at second base due to Jae-hyeon Kim’s sacrifice bunt failure. Park Chan-hyuk was thrown out due to a foul fly by the first baseman, leaving the team with two outs and a runner on first base.

Afterwards, Kim Hye-seong reached base with a walk and became 1st and 2nd bases with 2 outs. Dawson came out to bat and hit a hit that landed in front of right field. Second base runner Kim Jae-hyeon went around third base and sprinted all the way to home. However, right fielder Han Yu-seom caught the ball and accurately threw it home, successfully sniping Kim Jae-hyun. Hanyu Island’s good defense prevented the goal from being conceded.

# ‘KKKK+K’ SSG’s veteran bullpen fights back

SSG starter Oh Won-seok left the mound after taking charge of 6 innings. Starting in the 7th inning, bullpen pitchers were brought in. The first pitcher to come up was Noh Kyeong-eun. Noh Kyeong-eun struck out leadoff hitter Lim Ji-yeol with three pitches, then struck out Park Soo-jong and pinch hitter Jeon Byeong-woo.

Noh Kyung-eun stayed on the mound in the top of the 8th inning. He came off the mound after striking out pinch hitter Ye Jin-won. He struck out all four batters he faced that day.

Following Noh Kyung-eun, another veteran, Ko Hyo-jun, took the mound. Ko Hyo-jun also pitched well. On this day, he struck out Kim Hye-seong, who had reached base in the third game. He then caught Dawson with a fly ball to right field.

# In the top of the 9th inning, Kim Hwi-jip’s dramatic tying run,

SSG put closing pitcher Seo Jin-yong on the mound in the top of the 9th inning. Seo Jin-yong struck out Lee Joo-hyung. However, he allowed a tying home run to Kim Hwi-jip. Kim Hwi-jip hit the 128km/h fork driven into the middle of the field and went over the left fence.

In the bottom of the 9th inning, SSG created an opportunity with one out and two bases on lead hitter Park Seong-han’s walk and Oh Tae-gon’s sacrifice bunt. Kiwoom selected Choi Joo-hwan to win with Kim Seong-hyeon after passing him with 4 automatic intentional balls. Pinch runner Ahn Sang-hyun was brought in to replace Choi Joo-hwan.

Seong-Hyun Kim was out due to a foul fly to right field, but in the meantime, Seong-Han Park, the runner on second base, tagged up and advanced to third base. Next, pinch hitter Ha Jae-hoon came out to bat. Ha Jae-hoon got on base with a ball that fit his body. Bases loaded with 2 outs. Choo Shin-soo came out at bat. Choo Shin-soo sent a batted ball next to the first baseman. After Lim Ji-yeol caught, he tried to throw to first base, but missed the ball. Meanwhile, Park Seong-han came home and finished the game.
