Samsung HR - Shin Myeong-cheol
Perth Heat HR - Allan de San Miguel
The official game recap from the Perth Heat can be found here.
This game basically unfolded the way most Lions fans thought it would. The Lions showed rust early thanks to their month long lay off, but took advantage of mistakes from the Heat and turned this game into a rout.
Samsung started the game looking very much like a team that hadn't played a competitive game in a month. The Lions looked sloppy and starter Jang Won-sam labored through the first few innings.
Perth actually took a 1-0 lead in the top of the third on a RBI double from catcher Allan de San Miguel.
Samsung answered back with a three-run rally in the bottom of the third. Lions third baseman Park Seok-min hit a two-run double and later scored on a throwing error.
The two teams traded runs again in the sixth. de San Miguel hit a solo homer for Perth's second run and Samsung right fielder Park Han-yi hit a sac fly.
The Lions put the game out of reach in the bottom of the eighth with a six-run rally that included a grand slam from Lions second baseman Shin Myeong-cheol.
Jang Won-sam looked much better after he settled down. Jang tossed six innings(85 pitches, 56 strikes) of two-run ball. Jang gave up four hits and two walks while striking out ten.
