"I always cheer for the Doosan Bears.
This year our team made a miracle in countries, we’ll make a miracle one more time in this year. Yeah. Go Bears "
"I stayed up all night because of work, but I came with my friend to support the Kiwoom Heroes. I believe Kiwoom will win game 2 even though it lost game 1. Go Kiwoom Heroes "
However, in the end, the Bears defeated the Heroes 6-to-5 to take a 2-0 lead in the Korean Series.
The Bears scored 3 runs at the bottom of the ninth inning to complete a heroic comeback with Park Kun-woo delivering the game-winning single against Han Hyun-hee.
