With Buchanan taking the mound the Lions are a tough team to beat and with the Lions bats lining up similarly to Kiwoom, they have the same teambatting average (.271) and the Lions are averaging 4.93 runs per game and the Heroes are averaging 5.47 runs per game.

KT Wiz vs SK Wyverns
The KT Wiz dominated the SK Wyverns yesterday with a 5-0 win and now will send out Odrisamer Despaigne who is 13-7 with a 4.14 ERA this year. Despaigne has been especially dominant against the Wyverns this year posting a 1.80 ERA and a 2-0 record when facing the SK Wyverns this season. SK will send out Jo Young-woo who is 2-0 on the year with a 5.76 ERA on the year, but has really struggled with the KT Wiz going just one inning in his last start allowing 3 runs. He has a 13.50 ERA against the Wiz on the year and with a solid starter taking the mound for the Wiz, they get the win. They are a big favorite but the value is there with the pitching matchup and with the KT Wiz being 10-2 against the SK Wyverns this season.
