With Game 2 also in the bag, the KT Wiz is inching closer and closer to securing its first ever Korean Series title after just seven years in the top flight of domestic baseball as the KBO League's tenth and newest ball club.
The regular season champions defeated the Doosan Bears six to one at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Monday on six scoreless innings pitched by starting pitcher So Hyung-joon.
Over ten thousand fans packed the stands to experience baseball's gradual return to normal.
"Starting November first, the KBO has been allowing a hundred percent capacity fan attendance at ball games for the first time in over two years.
But all spectators above the age of eighteen must either be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours medical exceptions are accepted as well.
Mask wearing is mandatory, obviously, and cheering and chanting are banned.
The Sky Dome's an indoor ball park so, unlike outdoor ones, eating is not allowed.
These measures didn't discourage fans from enjoying Game 2 though.
"We've been playing well lately. KT's gonna win "
"Doosan always performs better in the fall. We thrive during the postseason. I trust that this time will be no different."
Despite losing the first two games, it's too early to count the Bears out.
They're the one and only team to have made it to the Korean Series seven years in a row.. and they've won three of those championships since 2015.
