Park Se-woong also showed off his good condition. At the end of the 1st and 2nd innings, he took the lead by handling LG attacks in three ways, and after one shot at the end of the 3rd inning, he showed off his sharp pitch by handling 8 consecutive batters before sending Moon Seong-joo to 1st base with a heavy hit. In the 4th, 5th, and 6th innings, not a single runner was allowed to go on base.

The game flow fluctuated 7 times. After a run in the top of the 7th inning, Han Dong-hee hit a right-handed hit and went out, and Lotte immediately threw a game-winning number by putting in the lead runner Jang Doo-seong. However, Park Seung-wook, the follow-up hitter, failed to score as he hit a double hit from the pitcher, shortstop, and first baseman.

LG, who took a breather, got the first run at the end of the 7th inning. Leading hitter Hong Chang-ki’s left-handed hit, and Kim Hyun-soo’s heavy hit after a run connected the chances for 1st and 3rd base to 4th hitter Austin.

Park Se-woong induced a grounder on second base by Austin, but Austin blocked the double hit by sprinting to first base after hitting. In the meantime, Hong Chang-ki, the third base runner, stepped on the home plate, and LG took a 1-0 lead. The Lotte Bench requested a video review of Austin’s first base safety decision, but the result did not change.

Lotte also quickly counterattacked. In the top of the 8th inning, when lead hitter Yoo Kang-nam reached base with a left-handed hit, lead runner Hwang Seong-bin was put in, and Kim Min-seok’s sacrifice bunt took a chance to score first out and second base. At this time, Hwang Seong-bin collided with LG shortstop Oh Ji-hwan at second base, and Lotte manager Larry Sutton protested whether the run was interfered with.

After a 4-sim agreement, the umpire made a judgment of obstruction of base running, and Hwang Seong-bin advanced to third base. LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop came out to the ground and appealed strongly, but the situation changed with one company and third base.

Lotte saved this chance. Go Seung-min’s 1 RBI sacrifice fly in the outfield allowed Hwang Seong-bin to score, balancing the score at 1-1.

Lotte, who gained momentum, even knocked down LG finisher Ko Woo-seok in the beginning of the 9th inning. After lead hitter Jeon Jun-woo walked on base, An Chi-hong’s left-handed hit connected the chances for 1st and 3rd base safely, and Park Seung-wook’s 1st RBI double hit the game and succeeded in reversing to 2-1.

Lotte kept this one-point lead. Finisher Kim Won-joong quelled LG’s final resistance and put an end to the game. Park Se-woong’s 8 innings and 1 run reverse and Park Seung-wook’s final blow escaped a three-game losing streak.
