This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy KBO series.

Kia Tigers (27-21) at NC Dinos (34-16)

Saturday, July 4th, 5:00 AM EDT

Projected starters

LHP Hyun Jong Yang (5-4, 4.67 ERA) vs Drew Rucinski (6-1, 2.38 ERA)

Game Preview

The Dinos remain the best side in the KBO and it's not even close – they sit 18 games above the .500 threshold and no team can match their mix of stellar pitching and dangerous offense. The Tigers have dealt with inconsistencies most of the season, but they remain a team to watch and are in fourth place with a 27-21 record. Kia, however, enter this game in a three-game winning streak after taking the series opener Friday. The Dinos will send Drew Rucinski to even things up, and he has been outstanding this season with a 2.38 ERA while registering nine quality starts in 10 outings. The Tigers will counter with Hyun Jong Yang, who has posted a decent 4.67 ERA while delivering six quality starts in 10 appearances in 2020.
