Projected Starters

LHP Hyun Jong Yang (8-6, 5.57 ERA) vs RHP Tae Hoon Kim (5-0, 3.89 ERA)

Game Preview

The Tigers and the Heroes have been two of the most consistent teams in the KBO this season and both are genuine playoff contenders. The Heroes, in fact, have been one of the hottest teams in the league and are within reach of first place at the moment – they're sitting just 1.5 games behind the NC Dinos while going 6-4 in their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Tigers are 4-6 in that same span and have fallen to sixth place, so they need to improve before it's too late. The pitching matchup also seems to favor the Heroes, as Tae Hoon Kim is undefeated and carries a strong 3.89 ERA while Hyun Jong Yang has a 5.57 ERA thus far.
