Kiwoom Heroes (35-23) vs Kia Tigers (29-25)
Saturday, July 11th, 5:30 AM EDT
Even though neither the Heroes nor the Tigers have come close to the level of dominance shown by the NC Dinos, who sit comfortably at the top of the standings, it's worth noting both teams have been playing at a strong level of late. The Heroes sit in second place of the standings and are 12 games over the .500 mark, but they've only gone 5-5 in their last 10 contests. The Tigers are in fourth place with a 29-25 record and have also gone 5-5 in that same 10-game stretch, but they enter this matchup on a two-game winning streak. They will try to push that run to three games when they send Aaron Brooks and his 2.36 ERA to the mound. The Heroes will counter with lefty Seung Ho Lee, who has a 5.33 ERA and just four quality starts in 11 outings to date.
Young Seok Jang - Out - Not Injury Related
6/8 10:29 PM IST - Jang was removed from KIA's first-team roster Monday, Ik-rae Choi of The Dong-A Ilbo reports. Jang was called up last week after spending several weeks with KIA's second team, but he is headed back down after going 1-for-11 (.091) last week. Recently-acquired Ji Hyuk Ryu is expected to take over as KIA's starting third baseman.
