KT took control of the game with a seven-inning, three-hit, four-strikeout, one-run, no-decision from starter Uhm Sang-baek. The Eagles gave up the tying run in the top of the 10th inning, but scored the winning run on Moon Sang-chul’s RBI double and a wild pitch. Jang Sung-woo’s three hits and Park Byung-ho’s multi-hit game also contributed to the team’s victory. 메이저놀이터
