Doosan/KIA was washed out last night.
Samsung 7, Nexen 4
W - Jeong Hyeon-wook (3-3), L - Oh Jae-yeong (1-2), S - Oh Seung-hwan (24)
Samsung HR - Lee Yeong-wook (3), Park Seok-min (10), Choi Hyeong-woo (19)
Nexen HR - Corey Aldridge (12)
Nexen tied the game at four in the sixth inning when they rallied back from a 4-1 deficit. Nexen right fielder Song Ji-man, shortstop Kang Jeong-ho and DH Oh Yoon hit three consecutive RBI singles into center field with two outs. The only thing that stopped the rally was Oh getting caught trying to advance to second after the third run of the rally scored.
Samsung took the lead back in the seventh inning with a RBI single from RBI machine Choi Hyeong-woo. The Lions tacked on two more runs in the ninth inning when Choi hit a two-run homer. Choi finished the game 4-5 with one run and three RBIs.
Lions third baseman Park Seok-min went 3-5 with a homer, one run scored and two RBIs.
Samsung closer Oh Seung-hwan struck out two during a perfect ninth inning. The only thing lower than Oh's ERA (0.79) is his WHIP (0.76).
Lotte 11, Hanhwa 3
W - Song Seung-joon (7-6), L - Yang Hoon (2-7)
Lotte HR - Cho Seong-hwan (5)
Hanhwa HR - Karim Garcia (7)
Lotte starter Song Seung-joon threw the ball pretty well, but there was no way that Hanhwa was going to stop the Lotte offense.
Song tossed seven innings(98 pitches, 65 strikes) of one-run baseball. Song gave up three hits and one walk while striking out five. The only Hanhwa batter that got close to him was Karim Garcia. Garcia tagged Song for a solo homer.
Lotte scored their first run in the first inning on a RBI ground out by first baseman Lee Dae-ho and the Giants kept scoring until Hanhwa recorded 24 outs.
The Lotte offense banged out 20 hits and 19 of them were singles.
Lotte right fielder Jeon Joon-woo went 3-6 with two RBIs and two runs scored. DH Hong Seong-heun went 4-5 with two runs scored and one RBI. Second baseman Cho Seong-hwan went 2-2 with a three-run homer.
Lotte was able to empty the bench during this one. Almost all of the backups were in the game by the eighth inning.
LG 2, SK 0
W - Radhames Liz (7-7), L - Goh Hyo-joon (2-5), S - Lim Chan-gyu (7)
LG HR - None
SK HR - None
LG starter Radhames Liz was excellent against the Wyverns. Liz threw 7 1/3 innings(106 pitches, 68 strikes) of shutout baseball. Liz allowed only six hit and three walks while striking out four. Liz was yanked in the eighth inning with two runners on base, but reliever Lee Sang-yeol was able to get a double play ball to get out of the inning.
LG closer Lim Chan-gyu struck out two during a perfect ninth inning for the save.
LG pushed across a pair of runs in the fourth inning on a RBI single from DH Yoon Sang-gyun and a RBI double from left fielder Jeong Eui-joon.
