After holding off further runs, Kiwoom tied the game in the bottom of the fifth. Kium tied the game in the bottom of the fifth inning when Lim Ji-yeol doubled and Kim Hye-sung grounded out to first base, but the pitcher was hit by a pitch to put runners on second and third.
Kiwoom found itself in a bases-loaded jam in the top of the seventh inning when Yang Seok-hwan, the leadoff hitter, was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Eventually, substitute pitcher Ha Young-min gave up a single up the middle to Kim Jae-ho.
The play in question came in the bottom of the seventh inning. Kiwoom had the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh against reliever Lee Young-ha after Kim Hwi-jip singled, Lee Hyung-jong walked and Kim Dong-heon singled. Lim Ji-yeol then hit a 146km/h fastball on the fifth pitch from reliever Chung Chul-won, but the ball was caught by third baseman Heo Kyung-min, who was fielding forward, for a force out at home.
Catcher Yang Yang-ji then threw to first base. The throw hit pinch-hitter Lim Ji-yeol in the back and rolled to the ground.
The Doosan bench requested a video review of the play for three-pitch defensive interference. It was determined that the batter, Lim Ji-yeol, jumped inside the first base line and interfered with Yang’s throw. The video review room overturned the call as a three-pitch out as it was deemed to be defensive interference.
After the call was overturned, Hong Won-ki immediately took to the field and argued with the umpires for four minutes. However, the video review could not be overturned. The referees immediately ejected Hong for protesting the video review.
