Game Preview

Friday's matchup sees the eighth-place Eagles travel to meet the league-leading Dinos. The Dinos have combined the league's best pitching with the league's third-best offense to open up an early three-game lead. Meanwhile, the Eagles are tied for second-best in runs allowed but have also scored the second-fewest. The Eagles will send their ace Warwick Saupold to the mound in the first game of this three-game series. After recording a strong 3.51 ERA in his first season in Korea, he's gotten off to an even better start this year, posting a 1.64 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP through his first three starts, though he's only struck out 11 batters in 22 innings. Taking the hill for the home side will be 20-year-old lefty Kim Young-gyu. He's had a solid first two starts this season, posting a 3.27 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP while striking out nine batters and walking none. In 10 starts and 20 relief appearances as a rookie last season, however, he didn't look nearly as good, recording a 5.29 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP.
