Samsung widened the score to 5-2 with Kim Ji-chan’s right-handed hit. Hanwha pursued Lee Do-yoon’s home run in the bottom of the 9th inning, but nothing dramatic happened.
Manager Park Jin-man, who met with reporters ahead of the match against Kiwoom in Daegu on the 25th, recalled the situation at the time and said, “The team almost lost because of him, but he succeeded in reversing and was more happy than he had beaten. That means that the team atmosphere is good,” he said.
Regarding the implementation of the expanded entry in September, he showed a cautious stance, saying, “There is still time, so there are some more things to check.” Regarding the call-up of Choi Choong-yeon (pitcher) and Kim Tae-hoon (outfielder), who were selected as MVPs for the Okinawa camp in Japan, to the first team, he said, “I thought Choi Chung-yeon would be able to return, but it is not easy in September because he is sick again.” “Kim Tae-hoon is playing normally. He will be included in the expanded entry if there is nothing wrong with him.”
Samsung’s starting lineup consisted of center fielder Kim Hyeon-joon, left fielder Kim Seong-yoon, right fielder Koo Ja-wook, catcher Kang Min-ho, designated hitter Jose Pirella, third baseman Ryu Ji-hyeok, shortstop Lee Jae-hyeon, first baseman Oh Jae-il, and second baseman Kim Ji-chan.
