The Kia Tigers got off to a slow start to the season, but they have been playing a lot better as of late winning six of the last eight games.

In each of the last three wins for KT Wiz Suwon the pitching staff has been good, so in this game it’s probably going to be a big key. The star of the Kia Tigers on offense is Mel Rojas Jr. who has hit four home runs and driven in 12 RBI”s.
Hyun-jong Yang will be on the mound for the Kia Tigers, while Hyeong-jun So will be on the mound for KT Wiz Suwon. Yang sits with an ERA of 3.43 while So has an ERA of 6.48..
The weather in this game is expected to be clear with a slight wind blowing 3-4 miles per hour from 1st to 3rd base.
