KIA sent Lee Chang-jin, who hit a come-from-behind double as a pinch hitter the day before, to right fielder 6, and Han Seung-taek played 9-catcher. LG made a slight lineup change by lowering the recently sluggish Oh Ji-hwan to number 6 and putting Moon Bo-kyung, who had hit number 6 so far, to number 3.
The selection is a confrontation between KIA Sean Anderson and LG Lim Chan-gyu. Anderson had a good record of 3 wins and 2 losses with a 2.58 ERA in April, but in May, he had 2 losses and an ERA of 7.43 in 3 games. Lim Chan-kyu started the season as a long relief player and came out as a substitute starter, but now he has completely established himself as the domestic ace. He showed amazing results with an average ERA of 1.47 in 6 starts this season.
On this day, KIA made 4 mistakes and LG made 3 mistakes, showing a lack of concentration in defense. However, the result was different with 7-0. There was an ace difference between making a mistake or not.

At the beginning of the first inning, LG took the lead. Following Hong Chang-gi’s hit in No. 1, when Moon Seong-joo grounded in front of the third baseman in No. 2, KIA third baseman Byun Woo-hyeok failed to catch the ball properly and made an error to drop it backwards, making 1st and 2nd base safe, and Bo-Kyung Moon in No. 3 was a full-count match going up to 11 pitches. At the end, he picked a walk and reached the bases safely. Austin Dean struck out in the fourth and got one out. Third base runner Hong Chang-ki stepped on the groove with a sacrifice fly by Kim Hyeon-soo in the fifth, making it 1-0. 6th Oh Ji-Hwan walked after a full count match and made the bases loaded with 2 runs, but Park Dong-Won, 7th, withdrew with a fly to the left fielder, and the inning ended. Anderson, the KIA starter, has a unique record of not getting a hit at the bases loaded this season, and it worked even in the first inning.
At the end of the first inning, KIA also created an opportunity with Park Chan-ho, the leader, hitting a heavy hit. However, Jong-wook Koh’s second baseman line drive put Socrates out. Socrates got off to a quick start, and Ko Jong-wook hit a ball that seemed to pass the second baseman’s height, but it fell quickly and went into the glove of LG’s second baseman Shin Min-jae. Socrates was already close to second base, so it was too late to return. The bottom of the first inning ended with Socrates’ well-hit ball flying right in front of the right fielder in the second out.

At the beginning of the second inning, LG scored an extra point with one walk and two errors without a hit. After Park Hae-min, the lead 8th, went on base with a walk, Shin Min-jae attempted to steal second base when Shin Min-jae was at bat in the 9th. At this time, catcher Han Seung-taek induced a high ball to block Shin Min-jae’s bunt, and when it flew higher, Han Seung-taek jumped to catch it, but the ball hit the mitt and bounced back. In the meantime, Park Hae-min settled down to third base. Then, Shin Min-jae took a bunt stance and Park Hae-min came out a lot toward the home side, and Han Seung-taek threw a check ball to third base, which also flew to the left fielder and Park Hae-min came home. 2-0.

In the top of the third inning, Austin fired a lightning-like solo shot to make it 3-0. After 1 death, Anderson hit the middle fastball of 146km of the first pitch, and it passed the left wall as it was.
In the top of the 4th inning, LG got another chance to load the bases. Park Hae-min’s hit and Shin Min-jae’s sacrifice bunt resulted in 1st and 2nd bases due to the pitcher’s throwing mistake, and Hong Chang-ki’s run with a ball that hit his body made the bases loaded safely. The patience of KIA coach Kim Jong-guk reached this point. Starter Anderson was lowered and Kim Dae-yu was raised. Kim Dae-yu, who faced Moon Seong-joo, threw three balls in a row to see if his body was still weak, and was in danger of a walk. He caught a strike with a fastball in the middle, and threw another fastball into the middle, which Moon Seong-joo hit properly and sent it to the right field. All three runners hit home and Moon Seong-joo advanced to third base. It was 6-0 in an instant. Then, Moon Bo-gyeong hit a clean right-handed hit that made the KIA infielder, who was defending forward, collapse. It went up to 7-0. The game was virtually split.
In the bottom of the 9th inning, KIA created a chance to secure 1st and 2nd base with Lee Woo-sung’s solo shot and Kim Seon-bin and Lee Chang-jin’s consecutive hits, but there were no more.

LG starting pitcher Lim Chan-kyu showed off a good pitching show and became LG’s most trusted pitcher. On this day, he blocked up to the 7th inning with 87 balls. He said he didn’t care about speed, but recorded the highest speed of 147 km. He won his 5th win of the season with 4 hits, 4 walks, 5 strikeouts and no run in 7 innings. Lim Chan-gyu, who had 5 consecutive wins and 4 away wins, escaped from 2 consecutive losses against KIA and won a start against KIA in 2 years and 9 months after the match against Jamsil on August 12, 2020.
KIA started sluggish with Anderson, 3 innings, 4 hits, 3 walks, 2 strikeouts and 6 runs (3 earned). Here, as four mistakes led to conceded points, it was inevitable that it would be a difficult game. In the bottom of the 9th inning, pinch hitter Lee Woo-sung hit a solo shot against pitcher Kim Dae-hyeon, the only consolation. The team lost due to a foreign pitcher’s sluggish performance and many mistakes, but the spectators who visited the baseball field that day sang a cheering song to the end.
