The Doosan Bears have had the upper hand in this series overall this year, but it's the Kiwoom Heroes who have the pitching advantage in this contest. Alcántara has a 3.13 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 83.1 innings this season, while Jokisch has a 1.62 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 83.1 innings. Jokisch has allowed a combined five earned runs in his last 28 innings overall. Alcántara has been solid lately as well, which includes allowing two earned runs in his last 13 innings, but he hasn't been as consistent throughout the whole year as Jokisch.
Because of who is on the hill tonight, I'll gladly take the Kiwoom Heroes at this price.
