Kiwoom Heroes vs. Lotte Giants
Friday, May 22, 2020 – 5:30 a.m. ET
Venue: Sajik, South Korea
South Korea – KBO


Analysis

Lotte starter Kyung Eun Noh ($7,400) will catch a huge break this evening with the news that Kiwoom slugger Ha Seong Kim (ankle) will not make the trip with the Heroes this weekend. Kim suffered a sprain and had to be removed from Thursday’s contest, which might have been the only way to slow the surging RHB down. Kim had racked up five extra-base hits in his past four starts; a span where’d he also averaged a whopping 20.5 DKFP per night.
