Technical support issues
Game 5 of the playoffs, which will decide which team will advance to the professional baseball Korean Series finals, will be held tomorrow (5th). NC dreamed of a sweep by taking games 1 and 2 and winning the series, but KT dominated games 3 and 4, bringing the game to a close.
Game 3 on the 2nd, which was in danger of being swept in the playoffs.
The prelude to the counterattack sounded early.
A ball hit by Bae Jeong-dae in the second inning.
He hit a two-run home run over the fence.
Ko Young-pyo, who took the mound as a starter, showed perfect pitching with no runs allowed until the sixth inning.
It was a narrow two-point lead, but Moon Sang-cheol's solo shot in the 7th inning, followed by Park Kyung-soo and Hwang Jae-gyun's good rain, broke NC's will to chase.
KT, which made a comeback, overwhelmed NC in two hits in the fourth game yesterday.
A series of hits from the beginning dragged NC starter Song Myeong-ki off the mound, and he continued to harass the relief pitching team by pounding the ball.
In the end, they hit two home runs in the 4th inning to decide the game early.
[Lee Kang-cheol/KT Wiz Coach: I think my sense of the game has returned a lot, and the players I need to hit are starting to hit, so I think we can confidently take on the 5th game as well. Since we have come this far, we will do our best until the end so that we can rise to the top.]
KT, who made their home fans cry in Changwon, NC's home stadium, will invite NC to their home stadium in Suwon tomorrow.
NC uses Shin Min-hyuk, the winning pitcher in Game 2, instead of ace 'Peddy', who won three gold medals as a pitcher this season.
KT's Benjamin, who was the losing pitcher in Game 2, is expected to return and seek revenge.
