Tuesday's KBO slate featured just a single matchup between the league's six playoff contenders. Raul Alcantara secured the win in that one with a quality start for the Bears, who scored seven runs (five earned) off the Dinos' Mike Wright in their 7-3 victory to pull within three games of first place. The win meant the Bears improved by a game against each of the other contending teams, who all lost against bottom-four sides. The Eagles got nine strikeouts from Min Woo Kim (albeit with four runs allowed in five innings) before eventually defeating the Twins 6-5 on a tenth-inning walkoff hit by pitch for Jin Ho Jung. Elsewhere, the Giants beat the Heroes by an 8-5 score in a game in which the starting pitchers combined to throw 4.2 innings. Meanwhile, in a battle of former major leaguers, David Buchanan struck out seven over six scoreless innings while Odrisamer Despaigne allowed seven runs in 6.1 runs while striking out just one as the Lions crushed the Wiz, 7-0. That wasn't close to the biggest blowout of the day, however, as the Wyverns smashed the surging Tigers, 16-1, getting six shutout innings from Young Woo Jo in his first start of the year while Tyler White hit his first KBO homer.
