It was the final game of the first half against Samsung at Champions Field in Gwangju on the 13th. It was 0-0 in the third inning.

Pirela hit a ball that rolled slowly down the first base line. Pitcher Yang Hyun-jong made a quick catch. The batter, Pirela, was running inside the line. To avoid this, Yang’s throw was deflected toward second base. First baseman Choi Won-jun reached for it, but it was out of reach. The ball ended up in the hands of the backup second baseman.

With the runner safe, Kim Sung-yoon, the first baseman, took advantage and advanced to third.

KIA immediately requested a video review.

The review took a long time. With less than 30 seconds left, the call was safe.

The umpires explained, “The batter did run inside, but it was judged to be a missed throw from the beginning, so we declared a save.” Coach Kim Jong-guk rushed off the bench. He protested vigorously. According to the automatic ejection rule for video review protests, Kim was sent off.

The Video Assistant Referee’s decision. There was no explanation from the on-field referees, and Kim could be seen getting agitated when told to go inside. The situation was unfair.

KIA has a video review nightmare when it comes to the 3-foot line rule. Coach Kim Jong-guk received his first ejection of the season after appealing the opposite case in the Gwangju NC on March 16.

With runners on first and second in the bottom of the fifth inning, trailing 9-10, Ryu Jin-wook was caught off balance while handling a grounder to third base by Shin Beom-soo. The score was tied at 10-10. Video review showed that Shin was called out for running inside the 3-foot line. The goal was canceled and the runner had to return to his original position.

Another unfair call. With runners on first and third, KIA gave up the go-ahead run on the catcher’s fastball. It was a disappointing result for KIA.
