On the mound, the bullpen shined. While starter Lee Ji-gang left the game after four and a third innings, giving up three runs on four hits and two walks with four strikeouts, Kim Jin-sung came on and pitched ⅔ innings of scoreless relief. Jung Woo-young and Yoo Young-chan pitched one and two-thirds innings of scoreless relief, respectively, giving up one run on one hit and one walk with one strikeout.
Fifth pitcher Ham Deok-ju struggled with two runs on two hits and one walk in ⅓ inning, but Choi Dong-hwan picked up the win with a scoreless inning of one-hit ball and one strikeout, and closer Ko Woo-seok did his job with a scoreless inning of one-hit ball and two strikeouts.
At the plate, “captain” Oh Ji-hwan went 2-for-5 with the game-winning RBI, while Kim Hyun-soo went 1-for-4 with two runs scored, one RBI and one walk. Moon Bo-kyung, who went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored, was also a key contributor. Choi Seung-min, who came in as a pinch hitter in the top of the 10th inning and scored the game-winning run, played the role of a “new stealer.
“It was an important game that could have gone in a good direction, and I want to praise our players for their gritty play,” said LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop after the game. “After the tie, we were worried about the pitching in the extra innings, but fortunately, after Kim Hyun-soo created a chance in the 10th inning, Choi Seung-min created a situation where he could score with aggressive base running. Also, Oh Ji-hwan made good contact and scored the winning run to win the game.”
“I think all the players played a good game to give the fans a victory with their grit in the hot weather,” he said. “We are grateful for the many fans who came and supported us on the weekend despite the hot weather.”
