From the first inning, Ahn Kwon-soo took the lead with his performance. In the top of the first inning, Ahn Kwon-soo hit a double in the middle right. When Ahn Chi-hong’s center fielder’s fly ball, Ahn Kwon-soo went to third base, and when Rex retreated with a ground ball in front of the second baseman, it passed through the home.
