Friday's KBO action saw quite a few offensive explosions, with five teams scoring eight or more runs. The Dinos led the way with 12 runs in their victory over the struggling Twins, with Sung Bum Na grabbing four hits and Aaron Altherr grabbing three, including a two-run homer. The Bears didn't trail far behind, scoring 10 runs in their win against the Giants, with Jae Il Oh and Jae Won Oh both homering.

Aaron Brooks ($9,000 DraftKings, $29 FanDuel as "Kia Starting P") is expensive and faces a tough matchup against a strong Heroes lineup, but he still looks like a strong option. His 2.36 ERA and 1.08 WHIP through his first 11 career starts in Korea are both top-five marks among qualified starters, though both numbers may actually underrate his recent performance. Over his last five starts, he's cruised to a 1.44 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP, striking out 31 batters in 31 innings while walking just seven. He's allowed just two homers all year, which should bode well for his odds of shutting down
