NC 3 - Samsung 1, Changwon [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

NC scored first on an RBI double by third baseman Mo Chang-Min in the bottom of the 3rd. Samsung managed to tie the score at 1-1 in the top of the 5th on a sacrifice fly by shortstop Kim Sang-Su, but it would be the only run for the Lions tonight as Samsung managed just 2 hits in the final 4 innings. The Dinos took the lead in the bottom of the 6th on first baseman Cho Yeong-Hun's RBI single. NC added one more in the botton of the 8th to give us the final score of 3-1. Rookie pitcher No Sung-Ho got his first win of his KBO career. No went 8 innings allowing just 5 hits and 1 walk. The loss went to Samsung's Rick VandenHurk who gave up 7 hits and 2 walks in 7 innings.

Hanwha 2 - LG 1, Seoul (Jamsil) [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

Hanwha put the first run on the board in the top of the 3rd when centerfielder Ko Dong-Jin drove in Song Kwang-Min from third base with a single. The Eagles extended the lead to 2-0 in the top of the 6th with an RBI single from left fielder Lee Yang-Ki. LG scored their only run of the night in the bottom half of the 6th when Jeong Ui-Yoon grounded out to second allowing Kwon Yong-Gwan to score from third. The Twins loaded the bases in the bottom of the 7th, but failed to bring the tying run across the plate. Hanwha's Yu Chang-Sik was the winning pitcher, allowing 5 hits and 1 walk in 5 innings. The loss went to LG's Radhames Liz who gave up 8 hits and 2 walks in 6 2/3 innings.

Doosan 9 - KIA 7, Gwangju [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

Doosan took the lead in the top of the 1st, and while KIA had plenty of scoring they were never able to catch up with the Bears. Catcher Yang Yui-Ji was the top performer for Doosan, going 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs and 3 runs scored. A total of 12 pitchers saw action between the two teams, but the win went to Doosan starter Yu Heui-Kwan. With LG and Samsung both losing tonight, Doosan moved within 3 games of first place. KIA, on the other hand, has lost 8 of their last 10 games and appears to be in real danger of falling into 8th place behind NC if they can't turn things around.

Lotte 9 - Nexen 3, Busan [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

Lotte held the lead with a score of 4-3 heading into the bottom of the 7th. The Giants put a big 5 runs on the board in the inning, including a 3-run homerun from pinch hitter Jang Sung-Ho to put the game in the bag. Lotte's Shane Youman earned the win after giving up 8 hits and 2 runs in 6 innings. Kang Yoon-Koo was stuck with the loss for Nexen. With the win, Lotte moved within 3 games of Nexen in the battle for 4th place and the final playoff spot.
