Professional baseball KIA defeated LG to secure fifth place, and reduced the magic number for fall baseball advance to two.

Leading SSG confirmed the regular season championship with one remaining magic number erased due to the defeat of 2nd place LG.

KIA, which left three steps to advance to the postseason for the first time in four years, exploded in the first inning.

Following Socrates' first double RBI double, Choi Hyeong-woo attacked LG starter Lim Chan-gyu and hit a two-run home run, making the away fans enthusiastic at Jamsil Stadium.

Starter Eui-ri Lee conceded only two points up to the 5th inning and held out, and the hitting line gave strength again in the 6th inning.

Park Dong-won's two RBI right-handed hit and Ryu Ji-hyuk's 1-RBI right-middle hit hit four points and divided the game.

KIA won 8-3 against LG, and played two and a half games with 6th place NC to solidify 5th place.


As the 2nd place LG lost, the leader SSG, who had no match yesterday (4th), automatically deleted one remaining magic number to secure the regular season championship.

SSG, the first in KBO history to win the 'Wire-to-Wire' championship that never gave up the first place since the first game of the regular season, is scheduled to hold a regular season championship event today ahead of the match against Jamsil Doosan.


3rd place KT defeated Samsung 7-3, and played half a game with 4th place Kiwoom.

Hwang Jae-gyun wielded 3 hits and 3 RBIs including the final hit, and Kim Min-hyuk helped the team win with 2 hits and 4 RBIs.

7th place Samsung was eliminated from the postseason with the victory of 5th place KIA.
