This article is part of our DraftKings KBO series.
Friday's KBO slate looked to feature quite a few shaky starters, though the day wound up being quite low-scoring overall, with teams averaging 3.9 runs and none scoring more than seven. Good pitching didn't wind up being that hard to find, with the best coming from Casey Kelly, who pitched a two-hit shutout against the league-best Dinos lineup in the Twins' 4-0 win. Chris Flexen was nearly as good, shutting out a strong Wiz offense over seven innings, striking out nine while allowing just four hits and a walk as the Bears won by the same 4-0 score. Meanwhile, Adrian Sampson and Tae In Won played out a somewhat surprising pitchers' duel, both allowing two earned runs in six innings, with the Lions eventually winning 7-3 on pinch hitter Sang Su Kim's walkoff grand slam. Elsewhere, Hyung Woo Choi's homer helped the Tigers past the Wyverns, 5-3, while Min Ha Kim scored two runs and drove in two more as the Eagles upset the Heroes, 7-6.
Saturday's slate kicks off at 4 a.m. ET and will feature just four games, as neither half of the Dinos-Twins doubleheader will be included.
There are perhaps reasons not to like Jake Brigham ($10,000), as his battles with elbow issues throughout the early part of the season give cause to worry any time he goes through a shaky patch like he's gone through in his last two starts, in which he's allowed seven runs on 13 hits over nine
