However, perhaps the tension was relieved, Seo Jin-yong could hardly catch his ball. He had a full count match with Yoo Kang-nam, Go Seung-min, and Park Seung-wook, giving him a walk. Seo Jin-yong himself brought himself into a crisis with a safe and full base. It is said that it is a 4-point difference, but it was a situation that could never be relieved, and the atmosphere was.
The crisis continued. He had an 8-pitch game with Kim Min-seok at no-man bases and induced a sacrifice fly by the center fielder. With a run by a runner on third base, Jin-yong Seo recorded his first run in 21 games this season. ‘Mr. Zero’ broke.안전놀이터

Afterwards, the game ended by inducing Ahn Kwon-soo to second baseman grounder and An Chi-hong to second baseman grounder.

After the game, coach Kim Won-hyung encouraged Seo Jin-yong, focusing on the result of securing the victory anyway. Coach Kim said, “Jin Yong-yi had a hard time stopping the game at the end, but he still showed his strength as a closer.
