Hanwha Eagles (7-10) at NC Dinos (13-3)

Sunday, May 24, 1:00 AM EDT

Projected Starters

RHP Jang Shi-hwan (1-2, 7.20 ERA) vs RHP Mike Wright (2-0, 1.69 ERA)

Game Preview

This game features a battle between the league's two best pitching staffs (in terms of runs allowed per game), but the gap in offense between the Dinos' third-ranked lineup and the Eagles' ninth-ranked unit accounts for the seven-spot gap between the two in the standings. The league-leading Dinos should be favored again in this one given the difference in track record between the two starting pitchers. Eagles righty Jang Shi-hwan has really struggled to start this season, posting a 7.20 ERA and a 2.33 WHIP through his first three starts. He wasn't good last year either, recording a 4.95 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP over 27 starts. Opposing him will be American Mike Wright. Wright's 6.00 ERA in 258 MLB innings is hardly an inspiring mark, but the mere fact that he's thrown that many innings at the highest level makes him one of the stronger starters in the KBO. It's certainly looked that way through his first three starts overseas, as he's allowed a total of just three runs while striking out 16 batters in 16 innings.
