Episode 5 was disappointing. After giving up a double (Kim Ho-ryeong) and two walks, Lee Chang-jin’s third base ground ball was thrown back by Heo Gyeong-min in the second bases loaded crisis, allowing the turnaround.
However, the batting line succeeded in turning around with Kang Seung-ho’s 2 RBI double in the top of the 6th inning. In the bottom of the 6th inning, after one out, he gave up a walk and went down the mound. With a 3-2 lead, the bullpen overcame KIA’s pursuit with a scoreless pitch.

After the game, Gwak Bin passed the ball to Yasujin, saying, “The first win was really hard. I was a little tired today. The beast hyungs kept cheering me on and saying only good things, which gave me strength. The pitching tempo was long, but I am so grateful to the beast hyungs who did not give up until the end.” . 스포츠토토
He continued, “I didn’t like the fastball in the beginning. I hit it with a breaking ball first, and in the 4th and 5th innings, I got the balance of the fastball. (Catcher Yang) Uiji senior also caught it and kept ordering it. The first thing the team wins than me is the first. I have only played 2 games so far. My goal is to complete the race without injury.”
