Game Preview

This matchup pits a Bears side which has reached five straight Korean Series against a Wiz squad which has yet to reach the postseason in its five-year history. Just looking at the two teams' records would suggest that they're both in line to continue their respective paths this year, though the underlying numbers tell a different story. The Wiz have actually outscored their opponents by nine runs this season, while the Bears have been outscored by that same nine-run margin. Just as the Bears as a whole have outperformed their underlying numbers, the same can be said for their starter in this one, veteran lefty Yu Hui-kwan. His 3.27 ERA is quite good, but it's come with a 1.73 WHIP, and he's walked as many batters as he's struck out (10). Wiz starter Odrisamer Despaigne, on the other hand, is having an excellent campaign regardless of what numbers you look at. His 1.69 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 28:5 strikeout-to-walk ratio are all quite strong.
