The first crisis was at the beginning of the 3rd inning with a 1-0 lead. After one out, Kang-Nam Yoo allowed a double to left field. However, after catching the follow-up Kim Min-seok with a pitcher’s straight stroke, he put out second base runner Yoo Kang-nam, who had a long lead. In the beginning of the 4th inning with a 2-0 lead, the lead batter Ahn Kwon-soo made an error at shortstop. It was an ordinary infield grounder, but shortstop Kim Joo-won’s throw to first base was uneasy. Taking advantage of the gap in which the ball fell back, Ahn Kwon-soo advanced to second base and made second base unscathed.
Gu Chang-mo did not waver. He struck out Seung-min Ko with a swing and caught Jun-woo Jeon with a third baseman fly. Then, even the foreign hitter, Rex, struck out on a swing. In the beginning of the 5th inning, after two deaths, Han Dong-hee and Yoo Kang-nam were hit consecutively, but Kim Min-seok was hit. Gu Chang-mo, who blocked the top of the 6th inning with two strikeouts and no runs, passed the baton to Kim Jin-ho from the 7th. The number of pitches was 99 (63 strikes).
