The Nexen Heroes broke a 3-3 tie in the eighth inning when DH Kang Byeong-sik hit a solo homer over the right field fence. Nexen closer Son Seung-rak recorded the final five outs for the save and the Heroes took a winnable game away from the fourth place Lotte Giants. Giants star corner infielder Lee Dae-ho is said to be nursing a calf injury. You wouldn't know it from the results last night. Lee went 3-4 with a homer, two RBIs and a run scored. Lotte starter Ryan Sadowski didn't deserve the ND he was stuck with. Ryan threw seven innings(105 pitches, 66 strikes) of three-run baseball.
