In the top of the seventh inning, KIA had another chance. After one out, Park Chan-ho hit and Kim Do-young walked to get on base. While Na Sung-bum stepped down with a fly ball to left field, Park Chan-ho tagged up and advanced to third base. However, Choi Hyung-woo was out with a grounder to the second base and failed to balance.

But the third chance was not missed. After one out in the top of the eighth inning, Kim Sun-bin and Hwang Dae-in made consecutive hits to create a first and second base opportunity. The two players were replaced by pinch runners Choi Jung-yong and Lee Chang-jin, respectively. Kim Tae-gun, who came out to bat, then hit a timely RBI single. In a series of scoring opportunities, pinch hitter Ko Jong-wook hit a come-from-behind RBI timely hit.
