Nexen HR - None
Samsung HR - Choi Hyeong-woo (29)
Nexen starter Moon Seong-hyeon shut the Lions down completely during his six innings(108 pitches, 63 strikes) of work. Moon didn't give up any runs and was only tagged for four hits and two walks. He struck out six Lions during his start.
Samsung Jang Won-sam struck out 11, but was tagged for four runs during his seven innings(112 pitches, 74 strikes) of work. Jang allowed six hits and one walk.
Nexen did most of the damage during a three-run rally in the seventh inning. The scoring started with a RBI double from backup first baseman Oh Jae-il and continued when Samsung shortstop Kim Sang-su made an absolutely terrible throw on a plate at the plate. The throw was a solid ten feet wide of home. Things got worse from there as Nexen sprayed a couple line drives into the outfield.
All of Samsung's offense came on a two-run homer from slugger Choi Hyeong-woo in the eighth inning.
