Doosan 11 - Nexen 5, Seoul (Mokdong) [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

Doosan center fielder Lee Jong-Wook lead of the top of the 1st with a homerun, and the Bears would add one more to take a very early 2-0 lead, but Nexen answered with 3 runs of their own in the bottom of the 1st on a 3-run homerun by shortstop Kang Jung-Ho to give Nexen the lead with a score of 4-3. Unfortunately for the Heroes, the lead wouldn't last long. The wheels fell off in the top of 3rd, as Doosan scored 7 runs in the inning, putting the game out of reach. Nexen starter Kim Byung-Hyun gave up 8 hits and 8 runs in only 2 1/3 innings for the loss. Doosan's Lee Jae-Woo pitched 5 innings allowing 4 hits and 4 runs for the win.
