Doosan was on the verge of collapsing after three straight losses. The saviors were Kwak Bin and Park Kye-beom.

Doosan escaped a three-game 먹튀검증 losing streak with a win the day before to improve to 30-1 and 29-1 on the season. LG, on the other hand, saw its five-game winning streak come to an end, falling to 38 wins, two draws, and 24 losses.
