Doosan Bears (29-20) at Kiwoom Heroes (31-19)
Thursday, July 2nd, 5:30 AM EDT
The Heroes and the Bears have been the league's two best teams in 2020 if we exclude the NC Dinos, and that's not something to take lightly given how even things have been in the KBO during the current campaign. The Bears won 14-5 during Wednesday's slate, and there is no question the Heroes will try to bounce back here. The recent 10-game form, however, favors Kiwoom – they have gone 8-2 in that stretch, while the Bears have "only" posted a 6-4 record in their last 10. The Bears will send righty Jong Gi Park to the mound, and he is coming off two strong starts. The Heroes will counter with Young Gun Jo, who has pitched to the tune of a 6.87 ERA in 2020.

It's not clear how long Kim will be sidelined, but he was unable to play Sunday and will miss more time. Min Seok Kwon is expected to fill in at shortstop in Kim's absence, and Kyoung Min Hur could see some action there as well.
