Hisashi Iwakuma starts center fielder Yong-Kyu Lee off with a fastball strike. Lee, who sports a fantastic pencil moustache, then takes a curve low. On 1-2, Iwakuma gets Lee looking on a fastball at the knees. Lee drops his bat in shock and puts his hands on his knees, but the pitch was clearly in the zone. Jin Young Lee follows by grounding to second on two pitches. Iwakuma is working very fast, likely eager to get Bong back on the mound after his long top of the first.
Iwakuma falls behind Hyun Soo Kim 2-1, then gets him to tap out to first to end a quick, ten-pitch inning.
