In the other lineup, Chae Eun-seong recorded 1 hit and 1 walk in 3 at-bats, including a home run, but could not prevent defeat. Hanwha, who fell into a two-game losing streak, took on 29 losses (18 wins, 3 draws) in the season.
The first priority was Hanwha. While Jeong Eun-won and Kim Tae-yeon, lead batters in the first inning, struck out one after another, Chae Eun-seong hit Won Tae-in’s 144km first pitch fastball and crossed the left fence. Hanwha took the lead with a solo home run.
Hanwha ran away with one more point in the second inning. Leading batter Noh Si-hwan succeeded in getting on base with a hit that fell in the middle of the right. Then, Jang Jin-hyeok was caught with a fly ball in right field, but Choi Jae-hoon blew a left-footed double and called the runner home on base.
Samsung did not stand still. In the 4th inning, he succeeded in attacking the opponent’s starter, Pena. Jose Pirella hit the ball to shortstop. Then, he sprinted to first base and led the safe decision. At this time, the throw was out of the way, and Pirella took up second base. In the continued attack, Ja-wook Koo was caught with a ground ball in front of the pitcher, but Min-ho Kang hit a timely 1 RBI.
Samsung eventually made a tie. With no two runners in the 7th inning, Yun Jeong-bin, who came on as a pinch hitter for Oh Jae-il, attacked Pena’s 146km fastball and crossed the fence in the middle right.
Samsung reversed the game in the 8th inning. Kim Ji-chan made a right-handed hit to the changed pitcher, Jung Woo-ram, and succeeded in getting the lead batter on base. And Kim Hyun-joon also got a chance to 1st and 2nd base safely with a left-handed hit. Pirella withdrew due to a floating ball in center field, but Koo Ja-wook pulled out a timely hit from the changed pitcher Park Sang-won.
Samsung continued to destroy the Hanwha Mound. Kang Min-ho picked a walk and created a chance to load the bases, and pinch hitter Kim Tae-gun scored a heavy hit with two RBIs. In addition, Kim Dong-yeop hit the new pitcher Kim Seo-hyun with an RBI hit, further widening the score gap.
Samsung put a wedge in the 9th inning. A one-man first-base situation created by Ji-chan Kim going to base with a ball that fits his body. One point was added by taking advantage of Pirella’s left-handed hit and opponent’s error. Samsung finished the game without further conceding.
