Upon returning to the first team, Choi Ji-hoon started as the number 1 designated hitter. Choo Shin-soo, who suffered an ankle injury during base running the previous day (12th), took the lead off.

After the game, Choi Ji-hoon said, “Moon Dong-ju is the pitcher who throws the fastest ball in Korea. He was concentrating on the fast ball.”

“I don’t have the know-how (to hit a fast ball). I try to hit it quickly because it comes quickly. When a pitcher who throws a fast ball comes out, I think I try to prepare a little faster,” he said. I did. I think that led to good results at the plate,” he added.
