Nexen starter, Angry Man Brandon Knight (I probably won't ever run into him on the subway) had a less than ideal start, only lasting 4 ⅓ innings and giving up 2 runs on 6 hits and 6 walks but got out of the game with no decision because Nexen's bats were firing. For Doosan, Chris Volstad got pinned with the loss with 4 ⅔ innings pitched, giving up 5 runs on 10 hits and 2 walks. The real news here, though is that Vinny Rottino went 3-4 today with a walk, an RBI and a run scored. This is big news because Rottino now not only leads the league in batting average, but he also is now batting above .400. Doosan's Jorge Cantu didn't fare as well, going 1-5. Nexen's Cho Sang-Woo picked up his 3rd win, throwing 1 ⅔, allowing a walk and no hits.
The Wyverns scored 6 runs in the 2nd and then 11 in the 5th in this route. Granted, 4 of those 11 runs were unearned and scored because of an error by KIA's third-baseman Park Ki-Nam, but it was still a blowout. Luke Scott is still resting his wrist so didn't see any of the action, and KIA's Brett Pill went 0-5. SK catcher Chung Sang-Ho went 3-5 in tonight's game and racked up an improbable 7 RBIs. Wyern's starter Kim Kwang-Hyun got his 3rd win, pitching 6 innings and giving up 3 runs on 7 hits and a walk.
The Twins just can't catch any breaks, but reliever Lim Jeong-Woo is showing some promise. The game was already lost but he pitched a solid 5 ⅓ innings, giving up no runs and only 3 hits and 2 walks. Josh 'Golden' Bell went 1-5 with a double, and NC's Eric Thames did a bit better at the plate, going 1-3 with a walk, his only hit also being a double. The Dino's Lee Jae-Hak got his 3rd win, pitching a strong 7 ⅔ innings, allowing 2 runs on 4 hits and a walk.
