The fourth week of the Korean Baseball Organization League 2020 will continue tomorrow as a new three-game match series will unfold. The first match will be played between the league table toppers, NC Dinos, and Samsung Lions at the Daegu Samsung Lions Park in Daegu.
Having won an outstanding 17 league matches out of 20 games played this season, it is now glaring that the NC Dinos are just a few steps away from claiming the league title. The NC Dinos with a 17-3 in the regular season are dominating the league table and look to extend their lead on the league table and their closeness to the 2020 KBO title.
NC Dinos finished their previous three-game match series with a treble win over the Kiwoom Heroes earlier this week. The NC Dinos, currently running a five-game winning streak, has won five matches out their six previous league matches and lost only one match to the Hanwha Eagles. During their last series game, the NC outclasses the Kiwoom Heroes with a 7-2, 10-3, and finally 9-6 lead over them. Earlier today, the Kiwoom came on powerfully with a five-run lead over the Dinos in the third inning of the game. Still, the Dinos' attack was enough to hold them off and topple their lead over with five runs scored in the 7th and 8th inning. Drew Rucinski will get the start for the NC Dinos.
On the other hand, eighth-placed on the league table, Samsung Lions are running an 8-13 in the regular season. The Lions have a challenging three-match series ahead of them having lost 13 games out of 21 league matches played this season. In their last series game, the Lions lost the first match of the series to the Lotte Giants with a 1-0 shutout but won the next two games. Dae-woo Kim will get the start for the Samsung Lions. Rucinski currently sits with an ERA of 2.49 while Kim sits with an ERA of 4.09.
