This article is part of our DraftKings KBO series.
Saturday's KBO slate saw quite a few excellent pitching performances, with six teams scoring no more than two runs. Ben Lively struck out eight Twins while allowing just one run on two hits over eight innings as the Lions pulled off a 5-1 upset, while Eric Jokisch bounced back from a poor outing to throw seven scoreless innings, allowing just three hits as the Heroes secured a 2-0 win over the Bears. Elsewhere, Hyeong Jun So struck out nine Eagles (smashing his previous career high of six) while allowing just two runs in 6.1 innings as the Wiz earned a 5-2 win, while Geon Wook Lee and Adrian Sampson allowed a combined one earned run on six hits in 12.2 innings as the Wyverns defeated the Giants by a 2-1 score. Finally, Preston Tucker went 4-for-5 with a pair of homers and five RBI while Drew Gagnon allowed just one run in 6.2 innings as the Tigers crushed the Dinos, 11-2. Sunday's slate, which begins bright and early at 1 a.m. ET, should feature more runs, with only a small number of trustworthy pitchers taking the mound.
Aaron Brooks ($10,000) is quite expensive for a pitcher who has to face the league-leading Dinos' lineup, but he's by far the best arm on the slate and is worth consideration against any opponent. He ranks third among qualified starters with a 2.61 ERA and third in the same group with a 1.04 WHIP. He's also third in strikeout rate (21.8 percent)
