The result is three-way exit. Oh Ji-hwan finished the at-bat with a fly ball to left field, Park Dong-won with a fly ball to second base, and Moon Sung-joo with a fly ball to left field.
LG fielded Kim Jin-sung in relief in the top of the eighth inning. Kim Jin-sung took over the baton of Baek Seung-hyun, who had one walk and no run in one inning. Hanwha aimed for an opportunity when Jang Jin-hyuk got on base with an infield hit to the first base after two outs. First baseman Austin blew his body, but it led to an infield hit. However, LG was able to harvest the last out count as second baseman Shin Min-jae caught Choi Jae-hoon’s ball and threw it to first base.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, Park Hae-min got on base with a left-handed hit and tried to break through the path once again, but failed to score again. Hong Chang-ki stepped down with a flyout to third baseman, and first baseman Park Hae-min tried to steal second base during Shin Min-jae’s at-bat, but he poured cold water when he was tagged out at second base. That’s how the runner disappeared, and Shin Min-jae’s ground ball went into pitcher Joo Hyun-sang’s glove, ending LG’s attack in the bottom of the eighth inning in vain.
When Hanwha’s attack began in the top of the ninth inning, LG put closer Ko Woo-suk on the mound. Ko Woo-suk pitched as relief pitcher in the top of the ninth inning with a 3-3 tie against Hanwha in Jamsil the previous day (2nd), but became a losing pitcher as he was sluggish with two hits and three outs and two runs in ⅔ innings. However, it was different on this day. Hanwha succeeded in stealing second base with Lee Won-seok on base with a walk after two outs, but failed to score as Noh Si-hwan was grounded out to third base and finished the attack in the top of the ninth inning.
The only thing left for Hanwha is to keep the two-point lead. Hanwha pitched two innings with one hit and no run, followed by closer Park Sang-won to the mound in the bottom of the ninth inning. LG pinned hope with Austin’s hit to the right, but no follow-up hit occurred. Park Sang-won held his 12th save of the season by allowing one hit and no run in the first inning. 스포츠토토
On this day, Hanwha won the game by scoring five runs just after five hits. Roh took the lead in the team’s victory with one hit and two RBIs in four at-bats, including a double. On the other hand, LG had to accept its defeat as it only had three points despite hitting 14 hits in a long and short period. Shin Min-jae swung hard with three hits in five at-bats, but the team’s defeat faded. Moon Dong-ju, who had nothing to do with the victory or defeat of the game, finished the season with eight wins, eight losses and a 3.72 ERA. Meanwhile, Jamsil Stadium was crowded with 22,858 spectators on the day, failing to achieve the sell-out.
