Projected Starters

RHP David Buchanan (10-6, 3.70 ERA) vs LHP Seung Geon Baek (0-3, 8.44 ERA)

Game Preview

Both the Wyverns and the Lions are near the bottom of the standings and, with a little more than a month left in the regular season, it's hard to see either team making a run at a potential playoff spot. That said, the Wyverns are on a two-game winning streak and have gone 5-5 in their last 10 contests, while the Lions are on a three-game losing run and have won just four of their last 10 games. Furthermore, the Wyverns scored 26 runs (!!) Wednesday against the Eagles, so their offense is clicking right now. The pitching matchup features David Buchanan on the mound for the Lions, and Seung Geon Baek for the Wyverns. Buchanan is the better pitcher, but it remains to be seen how he'll deal with an offense that should be full of confidence after Wednesday's impressive display.
