Kiwoom Heroes (9-7) at Lotte Giants (8-7)
Saturday, May 23, 4:00 AM EDT
LHP Eric Jokisch (2-0, 0-53 ERA) vs RHP Lee In-bok (0-0, 0.00 ERA)
The Giants beat the Heroes 9-7 in the first game of this three-game series, ending their four-game losing streak. They'll face a tougher task this time around with Heroes lefty Eric Jokisch on the mound. The American was one of the best pitchers in the KBO last season, his first in the league, posting a 3.13 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. He has a case as the league's top arm thus far this year thanks to an incredible start which has seen him allow just a single run in his first three outings. Opposing him for the Giants will be Lee In-bok, a pitcher with a far lesser reputation. He hasn't allowed a run in his two innings of relief work this year, though that sample pales in comparison with his (admittedly still small) sample of 39.1 innings over the course of his career. Over that full stretch, he's recorded an awful 10.75 ERA and an equally poor 2.36 WHIP. This has the potential to be a rather one-sided affair.
