SSG Kim Kwang-hyun struck out 5 in 7 innings and gave up 2 runs, and Kiwoom An Woo-jin struck out 3 in 6 innings and gave up 1 run.

Ahn Woo-jin made the mistake first. At the end of the 4th inning, Ahn Woo-jin allowed a heavy hit to lead batter Heredia, and gave a right-handed double to Choi Joo-hwan from 1 out 1 base, facing a crisis with 1 out 2nd and 3rd base.
