This article is part of our DFS KBO series.
Sunday's KBO slate was just the second full one of the week after rain washed away a total of 11 games in the previous four days. The day featured a handful of close games, with the Twins taking the rubber match against the rival Bears by a 4-3 score in perhaps the game of the day. Elsewhere, Chang Mo Koo had one of his worst games of the year against the Wiz, though that says more about his year to date than his outing Sunday, as he still struck out seven batters in seven innings while allowing a perfectly acceptable three runs. It wasn't enough to earned the victory, as three solo homers from Jae Gyun Hwang, Jeong Dae Bae and Woo Jun Sim sent the Wiz home as 5-4 victors. David Buchanan allowed six runs (four earned) in five innings as the Lions fell to the Tigers 8-5, while the Heroes handled the Giants easily, winning 8-1 behind three hits and three RBI from Byung Ho Park. The battle of the basement, the Wyverns defeated the Eagles 7-4 despite Brandon Barnes' first KBO homer; those teams also played a make-up game Monday, which ended in a 5-5 tie.
Weather seems set to remain a factor this week, unfortunately, with the three games taking place in the southern part of the country – Eagles-Lions in Daegu, Wiz-Tigers in Gwangju and Dinos-Giants in Busan – appearing threatened by rain as of writing.
