2nd place KT and 3rd place NC, half a game behind, had a tight battle until the middle of the game.

As KT’s native ace Ko Young-pyo put up a fight, giving up only two runs despite having nine hits through the sixth inning, NC starter Tanner also responded with a great pitch, allowing four hits and two runs in six innings and striking out eight.

The game began to lean toward KT in the 7th inning, when both teams’ starters retired.

In a one-out opportunity with a walk and a sacrifice bunt on second base, Alford broke the balance with a timely hit and 1 RBI.

With momentum rising, KT took the win with pinch hitter Cho Yong-ho’s 1-run hit to right and Kim Sang-soo’s 1 RBI hit in the 8th inning, and Park Byeong-ho hit a solo home run in the 9th inning, putting a wedge in the game.

In the 3rd inning, when the score was 0-0, starting pitcher Yang Hyeon-jong was shaken and faced the risk of the bases being loaded with no outs. He led Yoon Dong-hee to a grounder, but third baseman Choi Jeong-yong missed the ball in the follow-up move and failed to make a double play, giving up the first run, and the follow-up batter Ahn Chi-hong gave up a 2. A timely RBI hit was allowed.

KIA chased after Lee Woo-sung’s 1-run, timely hit in the 5th inning, but fell to his knees after the top of the 6th inning when the game was declared cold due to heavy rain.
