On the 12th at Daegu Samsung Lions Park, LG played the first game of the weekend against Samsung. Oh Ji-hwan of LG started as the fifth hitter and shortstop.
In the first at-bat in the second inning, Oh Ji-hwan aimed for Samsung starter Baek Jeong-hyeon’s first pitch and hit a huge ball that went over the right wall. Oh Ji-hwan circulated the ground, sensing a home run. However, 1st base umpire Kim Tae-wan declared a foul. Oh Ji-hwan, who had a puzzled expression on his face, walked around the ground until the end and stepped on the home base.
The LG bench immediately requested a video review, and the referees checked for fouls for a long time.
The batted ball went over the fence, but it was extended depending on whether or not it hit the right foul line pillar and passed. Ultimately, the referee declared it a foul.스포츠토토
