After the tie LG moved to a record of 46-34-1 so far. The Twins are hitting at a clip of .255 with 81 homers, but have posted a 3.64 ERA. The KT team is sitting on a 48-33-1 record, best in the KBO. The Wiz have hit at a clip of .268 with 66 homers and have posted a 4.15 ERA on the year.In the game here the Wiz are putting a good starter on the mound and Despaigne will outmatch Min-ho in the starters and that will set the tone of the game to make it easier to see the Wiz get the win.

Kiwoom Heroes vs Lotte Giants, KIW -117  ; O/U 9.5

The Giants picked up a win on the under on Tuesday over the Heroes. The final score in the game ended up at 1-0 with the Giants on top. The loss dropped Kiwoom to a 46-41-0 record. The Giants with the victory moved to a 37-46-1 record on the year. The Heroes have hit at a clip of .259 with 57 homers, but have a 4.11 ERA. The Giants for their part are hitting at a clip of .273 with a total of 70 homers, but have ended up with a 5.41 ERA. The Giants were able to luck out in their last game, but in this game the Giants pitching staff is what could cost them the game. However, the hitting for the Giants should make up for the shortfalls in the pitching and allow the Lotte team to secure the win.
