Lee Jung-hoo suffered a grandfather injury last Sunday, but in accordance with his father's coach Jong-beom Lee's will to 'focus on the game', he returned to training earlier than planned and started in the NC match.

After getting on base with a heavy hit in the first inning, Park Byeong-ho's timely hit hit home, signaling the start of the chase.

In the 3rd inning, he hit a right-handed hit to bring the game back to the beginning, and in the 4th inning, when the two gradually took the lead, he added a left-handed hit that breaks through the shift defense.

With three hits and three RBIs, Lee Jung-hoo raised his season batting average to 30, 5, and 7 ri, beating KT Kang Baek-ho to take the top spot in batting average.

Kiwoom, who got 13 hits and 11 four balls, defeated NC 13-2 and returned to fifth place alone.

SSG drew 4-4 in the bottom of the ninth inning, one point behind, when Park Seong-han pulled a tie-breaker from LG Ko Woo-seok.

SSG Choi Jeong-eun hit the 31st solo home run of the 4th season and jointly took the lead in home runs with NC Na Seong-beom.

LG, starting with setup man Jung Woo-young, was pushed to 3rd place, failing to keep the victory even with Super Strong, which started the winning team from the 6th inning.

Samsung came in second place over KIA with starting Buchanan's seven innings and one run in the lead.

Doosan scored three points with Fernandes and Choi Yong-je's just-time hit in the 7th inning, which were tied 1-1, beating leading KT and maintaining fourth place.
