LG pushed Won Tae-in hard as soon as the game started. Leadoff Hong Chang-gi pushed Won Tae-in’s first pitch to create a double that cut through the middle left, and after Shin Min-jae’s ground ball, Kim Hyun-soo hit a timely one RBI hit from 1 out and 3 base. With this hit, he reached 100 hits for 14 consecutive seasons. 6th record in KBO league history.
The follow-up hitter, Austin, also contributed. In a full count, Won Tae-in’s 6-pitch fastball was pushed and a double that hit the right wall directly brought runner Kim Hyun-soo home. The score was 2-0.
Samsung didn’t have a chance. At the end of the second inning, lead batters Kang Min-ho and Pirella hit consecutive hits and made first and second bases safe, but Ryu Ji-hyeok, who failed to make a sacrifice bunt, withdrew with a floating ball in center field, followed by Kang Han-ul and Oh Jae-il, respectively, with ground balls and strikeouts. Eventually, the inning ended without scoring.
Plutko, who finished the bottom of the 3rd inning with a tripartite, perfectly blocked the center batting liners Ja-wook Koo, Min-ho Kang and Pirella with two strikeouts in the bottom of the 4th inning. After the KIA Tigers game in Gwangju on the 8th was declared a no-game in rainy weather, taking a break for a week was an advantage.
Samsung, which had been silent for 4 innings, seemed to turn the atmosphere around with a hit by Ryu Ji-hyeok, the lead batter at the end of the 5th inning. The problem was after that. Follow-up hitter Kang Han-ul’s bunt hit the ball, and pitcher Plutko threw the ball to first base immediately after the catch, leading to a double out. Ryu Ji-hyeok, who was running to second base after the hit, was late, and two outcounts were filled at once.
It was in the bottom of the 6th inning that Samsung, which was trailing by 2 points, turned the atmosphere around. Following the hit by lead batter Kim Dong-jin, Kim Hyun-joon and Kim Seong-yoon made a hit with a bunt side by side, shaking Plutko. Here, Koo Ja-wook’s 1 RBI hit in a timely manner finally gave Samsung the first goal they had been waiting for.Kang Min-ho hit a ground ball to the third baseman in the ensuing safe-to-base run, but third baseman Moon Bo-gyeong made a mistake in throwing home, and all runners survived. In Samsung, which had a 2-2 balance, Pirella struck out with no bases loaded, but when Ryu Ji-hyeok hit to the right, third base runner Kim Seong-yoon and second base runner Ja-wook Koo scored and overturned the game. The score is 4-2. Plutko could not hold out any longer and went down the mound at 1st and 2nd base.
Leading batter Moon Seong-joo got a hit against Samsung’s second pitcher, Woo Kyu-min, and Park Hae-min got a hit from Lee Jae-ik at 1 out and 1 base after Lee Jae-won’s fly ball to left fielder.
Hong Chang-ki, who appeared at 1st and 1st and 2nd base, hit Lee Jae-ik’s 3rd two-seam, and in the meantime, second base runner Moon Seong-ju headed home. The score is 3-4. In addition, follow-up batter Shin Min-jae put pressure on Samsung with a right-handed hit, but Park Hae-min, a runner on second base, rushed home without stopping at third base. However, the result was a tag out. Right fielder Lee Seong-gyu’s throw reached home with no bounds, and catcher Kang Min-ho calmly tagged Park Hae-min.
Samsung put Kim Tae-hoon on the mound instead of Lee Jae-ik at second and third base, and ended the inning with Kim Hyun-soo’s left fielder’s floating ball. I gave it a point, but I got out of a crisis that could have gone to a tie or reversal.
Kim Tae-hoon, who also took the mound at the beginning of the 8th inning, treated the three batters as a tripartite offense, and Samsung took the opportunity to load the bases with a walk by Kang Min-ho, Ryu Ji-hyeok and Kang Han-ul at the end of the 8th inning. As they made their way out, third base runner Kang Min-ho and second base runner Ryu Ji-hyeok came home. It was the focal point of the match.
In the top of the ninth, LG kicked off the chase with a heavy hit by lead batter Moon Seong-joo and Heo Do-hwan’s 1 RBI double. Park Hae-min hit a right-handed hit and connected it to 1st and 3rd base safely, and when Hong Chang-ki grounded, he added 1 point and followed up with a 1-point difference. However, Kim Hyun-soo withdrew from 2nd and 2nd base and the game ended.
Won Tae-in, who fulfilled his role as a starting pitcher even though he did not receive scoring support until the 5th inning, recorded 7 hits, 5 strikeouts, and 2 runs in 6 innings. .
