There was no long hit and no four walks were allowed. The number of pitches was relaxed, but Ryu Hyun-jin felt uncomfortable with his arm, so he played only six innings and went down the mound.
Ryu Hyun-jin explained the background of the replacement through an interview after the game.

Local media also raised concerns about injuries, but Ryu Hyun-jin said, “There is no problem taking the mound. I will prepare the same from tomorrow. “I don’t even have to see a doctor,” he stressed 안전놀이터
