The SK Wyverns won their second game of a three-game series against the Lotte Giants on Thursday after a walk-off 9-8 win in the ninth inning. The win continued a three-game series hosted by the Wyverns at the Incheon SK Happy Dream Stadium in Incheon, South Korea.

The game-deciding hit came from Lee Jae-won in the ninth inning, who drove home two runs with a hit into center field. The team crept up to the lead earlier in the inning, as a hit from Choi Jeong scored a run as well.
