Samsung 6 - Nexen 5, Daegu [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

Nexen held the lead at 3-1 heading into the 9th inning, but Samsung managed to score 2 runs off of aa triple by Bae Young-Seop, a single by Park Han-Yi, and a double by Park Seok-Min to tie the score at 3-3 and send the game into extra innings. In the top of the 10th Nexen first baseman Park Byung-Ho hit a solo homerun, and Seo Dong-Wook came through with an RBI single to put the Heroes ahead 5-3, but the Samsung Lions answered right back in the bottom half of the inning, starting off the inning with 4 straight signles to tie the score at 5-5. The game continued until the bottom of the 12th when Park Seok-Min came to the plate with the bases loaded and 1 out. Park hit the walk-off single up the middle and the game was over with the score 6-5 in favor of Samsung. The Lions lead the series 2-0 and have now won 7 games in a row. The other interesting story in this game is Nexen's 28 year old rookie Ahn Tae-Yeong who made his KBO debut tonight. Ahn joined the team after playing for the independent Goyang Wonders. Ahn made an incredible opening statement, going 4 for 4 with 3 singles, a homerun, and a walk giving him a batting average of 1.000 so far in his KBO career.

LG 9 - Doosan 5, Seoul (Jamsil) [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

Derek Hankins made his KBO debut as the starting pitcher for Doosan tonight. He pitched 6 innings, allowing 9 hits, 2 walks, and 5 runs to start his KBO career with a loss. LG held the lead at 5-1 heading into the 8th inning. The Bears scored 1 run in the bottom of the 8th on an RBI single by right fielder Min Byeong-Heon making the score 5-2, but that was as close as the score would get. LG scored 4 runs in the top of the 9th, putting the game out of reach. Doosan didn't give up however, scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th, all with 2 outs, but it would not be enough to catch up. The winning pitcher was LG's Shin Jae-Woong who gave up 5 hits, 0 walks, and 1 run in 6 innings. The series is now tied 1-1 with the final game Sunday in Jamsil.

Lotte 7 - SK 4, Busan [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

SK held the lead at 3-1 after 6 innings, but Lotte put together a comeback late in the game, scoring 3 runs each in the 7th and 8th innings. SK managed one more run in the top of the 8th on an RBI single by Han Dong-Min, but the Giants' late game surge would prove to be too much for the Wyverns. Lotte reliever Kim Sung-Bae is credited with the win while the loss went to SK's Yoon Kil-Hyeon.

KIA lead 4-3 after 4 innings, but the second half of the game was all NC.
