Thursday KBO Game Highlights (2014/04/24)

Doosan 3 - Hanhwa 9, Daejeon [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

Hanhwa finally managed to put enough runs on the board to win a game despite their terrible bullpen and horrendous shortstops. Speaking of shortstops, Song Kwang-Min had his 9th error of the season (granted he was playing third-base at the time) and Han Sang-Hun committed his 2nd error of the season at short.  Song made up for it on offense by going 3-4 with a homerun and a base on balls, racking up 4 RBIs and 3 runs scored. Hanhwa's Felix Pie went 2-5 with an RBI and two runs scored, and Jorge Cantu went 0-2. Hanhwa starter Yu Chang-Sik is looking like the Eagle's ace, earning the win today with 7 complete innings pitched allowing 5 hits, 3 walks and no earned runs.

NC 13 - SK 7, Incheon [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

The Dinos showed the power of their bats today in a big win over the Wyverns. It was a close game at 8-7 NC going into the 8th when the Dinos scored five runs to put the game away.  Coffee and Waffles cranked one over the fence for his 6th long ball of the season and went 2-4 on the day with a sac-fly, notching 3 RBIs and scoring 2 runs and Luke Scott took the day off. NC middle reliever Son Jeong-Wook got the win on 2 ⅓ innings pitched, 2 hits, 1 walk and no earned runs.

Lotte 3 - Nexen 10, Seoul (Mokdong) [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

Nexen dominated out of the gate, and scored runs in 6 out of 8 innings. Lotte's Luis Jimenez had a decent day, going 2-4 with 2 walks but wasn't much help to his team. Vinny Rottino got the game winning RBI for the Heroes, going 3-5 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. Nexen reliever Cho Sang-Woo got the win on 1 inning pitched, allowing a hit and a walk.

LG 8 - Samsung 9, Daegu [Box Score] [Video Highlights]

The Twins suffered a heartbreaking 10th inning loss after giving up the lead by walking in the tying run in the bottom of the 9th. LG's Everett Teaford had a rocky start, giving up 3 runs in 5 ⅓ on 5 hits and 4 walks. Josh 'Golden' Bell cranked out his 7th homerun to stay a blast ahead of Eric Thames in the long ball rankings. He went 2-5 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. The Lion's Yamaico Navarro had an eventful day, only going 1-5 with a walk, but he reached base on an error once, stole a base and hit into a double play. Samsung's closer, Lim Chang-Yong got his 2nd win to complement his 2 saves, pitching 1 inning and allowing 1 hit and no runs.
