Game Preview

The Bears have been one of the best teams in the KBO this season and currently sit in third place of the standings with a 42-32 record – they seem a lock to make the playoffs. The same can't be said about the Lions, as they've been moving around the .500 threshold all season long and currently own a 36-38 record after going 2-8 in their last 10 games. For the sake of comparison, the Bears have "only" lost six games during that stretch. The pitching matchup for this game will feature two lefties, as Hui Kwan Yu will get the ball for the Bears, and Chae Heung Choi will do the same thing for the Lions. The numbers favor Choi, who has a 3.53 ERA, but the Bears have been one of the best offensive teams in the 2020 KBO season. With that in mind, Yu could be in line for a strong performance even if his 5.61 ERA does not look very promising.
