KT Wiz (45-38-1) at Hanwha Eagles (22-63-1)
Friday, August 21st, 5:30 AM EDT
The Wiz are clearly on the rise and have looked like one of the best teams in the KBO of late, posting a 7-3 record in their last 10 games and moving up to the fifth position in the standings. The same can't be said about the Eagles, however, as they sit dead last in the standings with a 22-63-1 record and are already thinking about 2021 and beyond, while going 2-8 in their last 10 contests. The pitching matchup shows a clear advantage for the Wiz, as Min Soo Kim has a 5.88 ERA that bests Chad Bell's 7.01 mark by a wide margin. Bell has been one of the worst foreign pitchers in the KBO this season and shouldn't be trusted, especially considering the lack of offense support the Eagles tend to give on a game-to-game basis.
