With this, Lotte finished this week with a 2-1 winning series against Kiwoom Heroes, followed by 3 home matches against KIA. Lotte manager Larry Sutton has earned a long-awaited ‘steady winning series’ that has been so emphasized.

Barnes calmed the KIA lineup with a refreshing good pitch with a two-seam, slider, and changeup on a fastball of up to 146 km. Except for a walk to Hwang Dae-in at the beginning of the 3rd inning, the KIA lineup was tied up without a single hit until the 5th inning. Episodes 1, 2, 4, and 5 were all three-way offenses.

In the top of the 6th inning, KIA Kim Tae-gun allowed his first hit, but caught it on second base. The subsequent crisis with Choi Jeong-yong’s hit and Park Chan-ho’s walk resulted in a one-out 1st and 3rd base crisis, which was cut off with Kim Do-young’s sacrifice fly to center fielder and one run. He gave up only one hit in the 7th inning and finished his inning without a crisis.

The bottom of the third inning, which was a big five-run inning, was the watershed of the game. KIA second baseman Kim Gyu-seong made a fatal mistake when Lee Jung-hoon grounded to second base following Ahn Kwon-soo’s heavy hit and An Chi-hong’s walk. The moment when Lotte won the first point.

At the end of the 8th inning, Lotte added 1 point with Jeong Bo-geun’s 1 RBI and 3 bases, putting a wedge in the game. Goo Seung-min in the 8th inning and Kim Won-joong in the 9th ended the game.
