However, LG tied the score 3-3 in the bottom of the eighth inning with Park Hae-min and Shin Min-jae’s consecutive walks and Hong Chang-ki’s two-run double. The possibility of reversal was also high because it led to the second, third, and fourth batting order with no outs. He took the opportunity to escape from the fifth consecutive loss.
Head coach Yeom Kyung-yeop excluded Moon Sung-joo, the second batter, and put in Heo Do-hwan, the pinch hitter. Moon Sung-joo’s batting average this season was 0.311 while Heo Do-hwan was 0.133. In particular, Moon Sung-joo was a left-handed hitter who produced a lot of ground balls, so he had a high probability of advancing.
