Sunday's KBO slate was full of strong pitching, and it played out as expected, with three teams getting shut out and one getting held to one run. Aaron Brooks allowed just one run in six innings while striking out eight, but it wasn't enough, as Won Tae Choi struck out six in seven scoreless frames to lead the Heroes to a 1-0 victory. Elsewhere, Chan Gyu Lim's eight strikeouts in seven scoreless innings helped the Twins to a 4-0 win over the Wyverns, while Drew Rucinski struck out six Bears in seven innings without allowing a run as the Dinos held onto their three-game lead atop the standings with a 5-0 win. On the offensive side, Min Woo Park's four-hit game, which included his third homer of the season, was the performance of the day. Tuesday's slate kicks off the ninth week of the 2020 season, with a matchup between the third-place Bears and second-place Heroes the clear highlight of the set. Tuesday's slate looks to be fairly light on trustworthy pitching, so it should make for a much more high-scoring day.
Ki Young Im ($7,800 DraftKings, $28 FanDuel as "Kia Starting P") would be the best pitcher on the day even if he didn't get to face the lowly Eagles. While he entered the season with an unimpressive 5.08 career ERA, he's breaking out in his age-27 campaign, cruising to a 2.91 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP through his first eight starts. Those numbers don't appear
