KT Wiz (34-33-1) vs Kia Tigers (37-29)
Thursday, July 30th, 5:30 AM EDT
The Wiz and the Tigers are yet to play this week due to several rainouts, and they are scheduled to face each other Thursday. The Wiz are just one game above the .500 mark and are in a tight spot when it comes to the playoff race, while the Tigers are in fourth place and in a tight battle for a postseason berth. The pitching matchup might favor the Wiz, though, as Odrisamer Despaigne will go against lefty Hyun Jong Yang. Yang has gone 1-1 with a 6.30 ERA against KT this season, while Despaigne is 2-0 with a stellar 1.84 ERA when facing the Tigers in 2020. The Cuban hurler will need to be at his best to carry the Wiz to another win.
