Game Preview

The Dinos are a virtual lock to end the 2020 KBO season in first place of the standings, although their margin for error has been reduced following a 3-7 stretch and now they only a "mere" 3.5-game lead over the second-placed team, the Kiwoom Heroes. The Giants, on the other hand, arrive into this game in seventh place of the standings but are clearly on the rise – they're on a five-game winning run while going 7-2-1 over their last 10 contests. The biggest matchup here will come on the mound, as two of the best hurlers in the league will go toe-to-toe when Drew Rucinski goes up against Dan Straily. Rucinski has a 11-1 record and a 2.31 ERA in 16 starts, while Straily has posted a sterling 1.99 ERA in 17 outings. Both pitchers are among the Top 5 in the league in the ERA department.
