In the process of continuing to the reversal in the middle after the initial slugging match, it was up and down. Landersfield, which was filled with 23,000 seats, was a frenzy.
It was in the top of the eighth inning that the bench’s resourceful fight went to the climax. SSG, which had a one-run lead with Cho Hyung-woo’s tying three-run shot in the bottom of the second inning from 1-4 inferiority, and Choi Jung’s reversing two-run shot at 4-5 in the bottom of the fifth inning, put closer Seo Jin-yong in early when the third pitcher Ko Hyo-joon gave up a right-handed hit to Kim Sun-bin after one out. Although he has no choice but to bear the burden of catching five outcounts, the role of Closer in charge of the back door was so desperate to escape the losing streak.
When Seo Jin-yong came up to the mound, the KIA bench removed Kim Sun-bin and put Choi Jung-yong as a pinch runner. When Hwang Dae-in got on base with a left-handed hit, Lee Chang-jin was put in as a pinch runner. He aimed for a tie or reversal for two quick runners. When Kim Tae-gun hit a heavy hit, Choi Jung-yong homered, tying 6-6. 스포츠토토

KIA chose to replace starter Lee Eui-ri, who had previously rested for 10 days due to shoulder inflammation, in three innings and operate the bullpen early.
