SSG finally took the lead in the bottom of the eighth inning of a 1-1 tie, capitalizing on starter Elias’ eight-inning, one-run outing.

On a two-out bases-loaded opportunity, LG closer Ko Woo-seok took advantage of a wild pitch to bring home a runner from third base.

Then came the ninth and final inning closer Seo Jin-yong.

Seo struck out the leadoff hitter, Hong Chang-ki, but allowed a single to Shin Min-jae and a stolen base.

After striking out Kim Hyun-soo to give himself a breather, Seo appeared to have the tying run at third base with two outs when Austin’s grounder to shortstop Choi Jung was ruled safe.

However, the call was overturned for an out, preserving the win.

With Seo Jin-yong picking up his 32nd save of the season, SSG snapped a five-game losing streak by beating LG.

Second-place KT chased down leader LG with its second straight win, beating Hanwha.

Starter Cuevas led the way with a seven-inning no-hitter, striking out 11.

Fourth-ranked NC took down fifth-ranked Doosan in a blowout, 12 to 5.

Tablesetters Son Asub and Park Min-woo combined for six hits, four RBIs, and five runs in the win.

Ninth-ranked Samsung defeated fifth-ranked KIA, 6-4, behind Kim Hyun-joon’s game-winning two-run triple, while last-place Kiwoom also sprinkled some pepper by sweeping a three-game weekend series against seventh-ranked Lotte, which has a lot to live up to.
