With no runners on first out, he came to the plate and hit a one-run home run.

In the crisis of 2nd, 1st and 3rd base, LG put finishing pitcher Ko Woo-seok on the mound. However, after sending Jeon Ui-san with a ball that fits the body, pinch hitter Kim Kang-min’s battering came out at bat. Third base runner Kang Jin-seong came home.
