The first round of the semi-playoffs with all 22,500 seats sold out.
The two teams, who met on the fall baseball stage for the first time in six years, had a breathtaking pitching battle until the 7th inning.
For NC, Shin Min-hyuk, who was in charge of starting Game 1 due to an injury to ace Peddy, pitched a scoreless pitch until two outs in the 6th inning, and for SSG, starter Elias continued pitching a perfect scoreless pitch until the 7th inning.
The game started in the 8th inning.
Kim Seong-wook, who stepped in as a pinch hitter with one out and one out on first base, defeated Elias, who seemed like an impregnable defender.
A two-run home run went over the left field wall.
NC broke expectations and won the first game in the 9th inning with Park Min-woo’s unexpected steal of third base followed by consecutive timely hits.
“I thought I would hit it as soon as I got into the zone, but it seems to have led to good results. I think I had a big feeling of ‘Please, please’ while watching the center fielder run.”
SSG left something to be desired.
In the bottom of the 8th inning, they only scored 1 run with 1 out and runners on 2nd and 3rd base, and in the last attack in the bottom of the 9th, Ha Jae-hoon’s two-run home run from 1st base with no outs allowed them to chase up to 4-3, but they were unable to create any further turnaround.토토사이트
