Kim came to the plate as the leadoff hitter in the fifth inning. His pitch was hit in front of pitcher Uhm Sang-baek. Kim sprinted to first base. Uhm’s throw sailed to the right of first baseman Park Byung-ho. As Park stretched out his arm to catch the ball, Kim collided with Byung-ho Park at first base.

Their bodies collided head-on. Kim Kyu-sung was lying on the field and complaining of pain. Medical personnel were called in to check his condition. He caught his breath and stood up, but was replaced by pinch-hitter Choi Jung-yong to finish the game.

A KIA official said, “Kim Kyu-sung had some difficulty breathing, so we substituted him to protect the player. He is currently resting in the locker room to check his condition.”

The game had many ups and downs. In the first inning, KIA starting pitcher Kim Gun-gook was ejected for a head shot. In the top of the second inning, Hwang Dae-in felt pain in his right hamstring during an infield play and was replaced.
