After all, in a close match, one small play changes the atmosphere. In particular, poor defense brings anger. Accumulated data and memories tell us this. The Lotte Giants also had to give up the flow of the game in an instant, providing food for the opponent by gathering disappointing plays in the defense in the ‘Elotrasico’ match against the leader LG Twins.

In the first inning, LG Austin Dean hit a two-run four and conceded the first run. However, Lotte immediately launched a counterattack. At the end of the first inning, Jeon Jun-woo’s timely double hit made up 1 point, and after two outs in the second inning, Kim Min-seok’s timely hit balanced the score 2-2. In the 3rd inning, Austin again got a right-handed hit, but at the end of the 4th inning Yoo Kang-nam fired a solo shot to tie the score, balancing the game 3-3. Park Se-woong, who was shaken at the beginning of the game, led the game to a tight flow until the game was halfway through the 4th and 5th innings in a row after giving up runs in the 3rd inning.
However, he failed to dominate the match in the 6th inning. And Lotte failed to dominate this match and took on the role of giving the victory. Austin, who was harassing Lotte starter Park Se-woong in the early and mid-game, was treated as a shortstop ground ball. And it seemed to turn Oh Ji-hwan into a floating ball in right field.
However, the attitude of right fielder Yoon Dong-hee was strange. The ball seemed to hit his light tower and he seemed to lose his landing spot. Yoon Dong-hee, who settled behind the falling ball, hurriedly dived forward, but could not prevent his batted ball from falling. It was a right-handed hit, but it was an invisible mistake.
It was the beginning of a crisis. Park Se-woong was shaken. He gave the follow-up Park Dong-won a ball that fit his body, causing a crisis with 1 company and 1st and 2nd base. It was a crisis that didn’t have to come out. In the end, Bo-kyung Moon got a right-handed hit and gave the lead back to 3-4. It was the moment when the balance was broken. If it was blocked by 1 run, it was still a success. The follow-up hitter, Park Hae-min, led the shortstop with a ground ball to make 2nd, 1st and 3rd bases, and the atmosphere settled down again.
Lotte greeted left-hander Shin Min-jae and put down Park Se-woong and left-hander Kim Jin-wook. Park Hae-min stole second base, but Lotte Battery focused on the match against the batter.
And Kim Jin-wook seemed to get the desired result against Shin Min-jae. He induced a ground ball to the third baseman. Han Dong-hee was defending forward, but headed that way. However, Han Dong-hee could not catch this ball. As he lowered himself, he reached for his glove, but it was too late.
Shin Min-jae’s exit velocity Trackman data measured by Spotify, a relay broadcasting company, was 126.1 km. He wasn’t hitting slow, but he wasn’t hitting fast that he couldn’t handle. His record was 2 RBIs and timely hits, but it is safe to say that he was also an error-prone play. The gap widened to 3-6. It wasn’t easy now, and the game has definitely passed to LG. In the beginning of the 7th inning, as they gave up 6 runs, the close game quickly turned into a crushing defeat.
In the end, Dong-hee Yoon and Dong-hee Han, the futures that Lotte boasted, ‘Dong-hee’s’ gave up a close match with a disappointing look in defense, and Lotte was once again in a situation of 50% odds crisis.
