Koo Ja-wook, who is next to Kim Seong-yoon, who is spreading out his arms, is shaking his shocked heart.

While sprinting in the outfield, Kim Seong-yoon caught the ball just in the nick of time. Although his hat came off due to wind resistance, a smile spread across his face as he caught the ball. Koo Ja-wook, who played along with him in defense, still looked like he was in danger.

Afterwards, during pinch hitter Park Gye-beom’s at-bat, an infield ground ball was headed for third baseman Ryu Ji-hyuk, but due to a catching error, second base runner Kang Seung-ho reached home via third base, and Doosan was delighted with the comeback victory.
