Taking the mound in the top of the eighth inning after Kim Yoon-ha and Cho Dong-wook, with the team trailing 1-3, Yuk Sun-yeop showed his good form by throwing a slick pitch to the Jungang High batters.

With the bases loaded in the eighth inning, Yuk got Kim Ji-ho, the center fielder, to ground out on a full count to end the inning, but Kim Won-woo, the next batter, walked to put runners on first and second again.

A single would have tied the game. With runners on 1B and 1S, Kim Hyun-soo hit a pitch from Yuk Sun-yeop hard, and the ball went straight to the pitcher.

As Kim stuck out his glove to block the hard hit, a fastball from the pitcher hit him directly in the face. Despite the pain of being hit, Yuk remained focused and managed to catch the ball and throw to first base for the out.
