The KIA Tigers decorated their 3-game series against the NC Dinos as a winning series.
KIA won 5-0 in the NC game at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 27th. Up to the 6th inning, he was drawn to perfection against NC starting pitcher Koo Chang-mo, but at the end of the 7th inning, he made a 5-run big inning and seized the victory. Starter Yoon Young-cheol pitched 5 scoreless innings, followed by Jang Hyeon-sik, Jeon Sang-hyun, Lee Jun-young and Jung Hae-young, who pitched 5 scoreless innings. KIA, who lost 0-6 against NC on the 25th, won again on the 27th following a 6-0 win on the 26th, succeeding in winning three consecutive wins and two consecutive victories during the week. NC left regret as it failed to make use of it even after having two chances with bases loaded amidst Gu Chang-mo’s strong pitching.
The march of 0 continued until the 6th inning. NC had a chance against KIA starter Yoon Young-cheol, with 1 out, 2nd, 3rd base in the top of the 3rd inning, and 2 outs and bases full in the top of the 4th inning, but ended up scoreless due to a misfire in the follow-up. In the top of the 6th inning against Jang Hyeon-shik, who came on the mound following Yoon Young-chul, he had a chance to load the bases with one run, but Kim Joo-won struck out and Oh Young-soo hit the ground as it became a straight hit to center fielder. KIA could not get out of the perfect situation in which NC Gu Chang-mo could not make a single on-base until the 6th inning.
In the end, the game was decided by a single variable. In the KIA, after one death at the end of the 7th inning, Kim Seon-bin touched the ball of Gu Chang-mo at 1B. While the hit ball floated vaguely between the first baseman, second baseman, and right fielder, second baseman Park Min-woo held out his glove but failed to catch the ball, and KIA succeeded in reaching base for the first time. Koo Chang-mo, whose perfect streak was broken, got the first point when Choi Hyung-woo made a right-handed hit at the first and second bases, which he greeted with a walk to Socrates Brito. In the ensuing 1st, 1st and 3rd bases, Hwang Dae-in called in a runner from 3rd base with a sacrifice fly by center fielder, leading 2-0. KIA made it 3-0 with Lee Woo-sung hitting the left at the right time in the 2nd 1st and 2nd base made by Byun Woo-hyuk’s right-handed hit. With 2nd, 2nd and 3rd bases, NC called in Gu Chang-mo and put Kim Si-hoon on the mound, but as Han Seung-taek hit a timely hit with 2 RBIs, KIA widened the gap to 5-0.먹튀검증
