Lotte Beats Dinos in Rare Pitcher’s Duel

1-0 pitcher’s duels are rare in Korea. That was the score with the Lotte Giants beating the NC Dinos in the second playoff game of the best of five series. Brooks Raley pitched 5.1 innings of shutout relief for the Giants. The bullpen followed with three pitchers getting an inning or more of work. Seung-Tak Son worked the last inning to earn the save.

Hyun-Shik Jang was wild for the NC Dinos, walking five, but he went seven innings, giving up only three hits and one unearned run. An error on a grounder in the second inning and two walks loaded the bases. A ground out double play allowed the only run to score. The Dinos were able to get a runner to second base on three occasions, but could not get the big hit to score the run and tie the game.

The best of five series is now even at 1-1.
