Woori 6, Hanhwa 2
W - Jang Won-sam, L - Yang Hoon
6-2 makes this one sound close. Woori was leading 6-0 in the 7th when Hanhwa finally got on the board thanks to an RBI single from Hanhwa's Kim Tae-won. Kim struck again with a solo homer in the 9th off of my hero, Shingo Takatsu. Woori was able to combine an opportunistic offense with a quality start from Jang Won-sam. Jang lasted 6 innings(105 pitches, 67 strikes) allowed 1 run on 2 hits and 3 walks with 8 K's. A 4th inning solo homer from Woori's Kang Jeong-ho was the difference in the game. Kim Taek-geun added a 2-run blast in the 5th to make the lead a little more comfortable.
