In a series of attacks, South Korea had two outs and runners on second and third bases with Kim Hyung-joon’s hit and Kim Sung-yoon’s double. Lin Wi-min’s wild pitch that came out during Kim Hye-sung’s at-bat enabled him to run 2-0.
South Korea finally defended the score with Moon Dong-ju’s good pitching and Choi Ji-min, Park Young-hyun, and Ko Woo-suk’s scoreless pitches, and achieved their fourth consecutive Asian Games victory.
After the game, Lee Jung-hoo left a congratulatory message for his brother-in-law Ko Woo-suk on his SNS. Lee Jung-hoo left a short comment, saying, “Good job,” while posting a picture of grieving Ko Woo-suk at the Asian Games gold medal ceremony.
Kiwoom Heroes star Lee Jung-hoo proudly entered the Asian Games final list, which was first announced, but was put on the operating table due to ankle extension damage suffered in the game against Lotte Giants on July 22. At the time, the Kiwoom club predicted that it would take about three months to rehabilitate, and Lee Jung-hoo failed to join the Asian Games in the end.
Although it is regrettable that he could not participate in the Asian Games, Lee Jung-hoo congratulated Ko Woo-suk, his family and a member of the national baseball team. It was a congratulatory message that showed the strong friendship between the two players.
