Hanwha Eagles (21-57-1) at Kiwoom Heroes (49-34)

The Heroes are in second place of the standings with a 49-34 record and are one of two teams that is yet to tie a contest in the current KBO season. Meanwhile, the Eagles are already thinking about next season due to their 21-57-1 record and are the only franchise in the league that's yet to reach the 25-win plateau. The pitching matchup features a righty for the Heroes – Jake Brigham – and a lefty for the Eagles – Joo Hong Park. Brigham has been the pitcher this season and, as if that wasn't enough, he also has the support of a strong Kiwoom offense. That should be enough to list him as the strongest pitching alternative.
