In the third inning, LG’s pot-bellied foreign hitter Austin hit a solo shot to left field one out later. It was Austin’s sixth home run of the season. LG finally put the game out of reach with a four-run fourth inning. With the bases loaded, Moon Sung-joo hit a triple down the right field line. Moon followed with an RBI single to right to make it 7-0.

KIA got one run back in the ninth inning when pinch-hitter Lee Woo-sung launched his third home run of the season off reliever Kim Dae-hyun. The pinch-hit home run was Lee’s fifth of the season, 1006th of his league career and second individually. Kim Sun-bin followed with a single to left-center and Lee Chang-jin with a single to left. The LG bench couldn’t stand idly by any longer, so they pulled Kim Dae-hyun and brought in “veteran” Kim Jin-sung. Kim struck out Kim Kyu-sung, Hwang Dae-in, and Shin Bum-soo to secure the win.

Kiwoom players celebrate after their win against Gocheok Lotte on April 28.
They were down 1-5, and it looked like they were going to lose… Kiwoom refuses to give up, 1-5→7-5 comeback drama, hero Lim Ji-yeol of Legion of Heroes
Kiwoom defeated Lotte 7-5 with a dramatic come-from-behind grand slam at Gocheok Sky Dome. Lim Ji-yeol hit his first career grand slam. Kiwoom snapped a four-game losing streak and will head into next week on a high note.

Kiwoom recorded its 20th win of the season (28 losses). Lotte, on the other hand, could have moved into second place with a win over Kiwoom on the day, but settled for third place (26 wins, 16 losses) with one more loss.

Lotte native ace Na Gyun-ahn appeared to be on the verge of his sixth win of the season, as he pitched six innings of five-hit ball with two walks and nine strikeouts, but the bullpen gave up a run that cost him the win.

Lotte took a 2-0 lead in the second inning on back-to-back sacrifice flies by Ko Seung-min and Han Dong-hee. In the third, Ahn Chi-hong made it 3-0 with an RBI single. Kiwoom got a run back in the bottom of the inning, but in the fifth, Lotte combined a sacrifice fly by Jeon Jun-woo with an RBI single by Ahn Chi-hong to make it 5-1.

The game seemed to be tilted in Lotte’s favor. However, Kiwoom’s fearsome comeback began. In the bottom of the seventh inning, the team trailed 1-5. With the bases loaded, Kim Hye-sung grounded out to third base, allowing Kim Hwijip to come home (5-2).

The bottom of the eighth inning. LOTTE switched pitchers from Kim Jin-wook to Kim Sang-soo. But Kim Sang-soo was shaky. He gave up singles to Russell, Lim Byung-wook, and Lee Won-seok to load the bases. Kim Dong-heon then hit a sacrifice fly to center field (5-3).

Kim Hui-jip continued to load the bases with a single to right-center. Eventually, Lotte decided to pull Kim Sang-soo and put Yoon Myung-jun on the mound. Yoon came up and struck out Lee Hyung-jong on three pitches. There was only one out left in the inning. The next batter was Lim Ji-yeol. And he was the hero. With a 2-1 count and four pitches on the plate against Yoon Myung-jun, he hit a four-pitch fastball over the center field wall for a grand slam. It was his ninth home run of the season, the 1024th of his KBO career, and his first career grand slam. 7-5 comeback. Kiwoom protected its two-run lead in the top of the ninth inning with Lim Chang-min on the mound.

Lee Myung-jong, Kiwoom’s fourth pitcher, pitched 1⅔ scoreless innings to earn his first win of the season. Kim Sang-soo, on the other hand, suffered his first loss of the season. For the Kiwoom bats, which pounded out 13 hits, Kim Hwi-jip went 4-for-4 with three RBIs and two runs scored, while Kim Hye-sung and Lee Jung-hoo each had multi-hit games. For Lotte, Ahn Chi-hong went 3-4 with a home run, a run scored and two RBIs, while Ahn Kwon-soo and Yoon Dong-hee each had two hits.
