Plutko continued pitching scoreless until the 5th inning, but swallowed the regret by showing a rapid hunting in the 6th inning.
It was LG that took the lead first.
Hong Chang-ki’s double and Shin Min-jae’s sacrifice bunt in the top of the first inning made it 1 out and 3 base, and Kim Hyun-soo hit a right-handed hit at the right time. The follow-up hitter, Austin Dean, hit a double that hit the top of the right fence and brought Kim Hyun-soo home.
Samsung, which had a hard time trying to target LG’s starting Plutco, made up its mind in the 6th inning.
In the bottom of the 6th inning, Kim Dong-jin’s left-handed hit and Kim Hyeon-joon’s and Kim Seong-yoon’s consecutive bunt hits created a chance for the bases loaded safely. The follow-up hitter, Ja-wook Koo, hit the pitcher and deflected it, leading to an infield hit, and the runner on third base scored.
In the ensuing run with bases loaded, LG third baseman Moon Bo-kyung’s home throw, which caught Kang Min-ho’s ground ball, missed, and third base runner Kim Hyeon-joon went home.
Afterwards, Ryu Ji-hyuk hit a right-handed hit with 2 RBIs in the bases loaded with 2 outs, and Samsung overturned the game to 4-2.

In the bottom of the 8th inning, Kang Min-ho, Ryu Ji-hyeok, and Kang Han-ul walked, and Oh Jae-il scored 2 RBIs and left the bases with one out, leading Samsung to a 6-3 lead.

But that was it. Oh Seung-hwan protected Shin Min-jae with a pitcher ground ball and Kim Hyun-soo with a fly to right field to protect the team’s victory.
