The Doosan Bears have played the better baseball over the last week or so and have the clear h2h advantage in this series as well. The Bears should be favored. However, this is a terrific starting pitching matchup that makes you want to side with the team and the cheaper price because of how close it is. Alcántara has a 2.89 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 90.1 innings, while Jokisch 2.12 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in 89 innings. Alcántara has allowed just two runs in his last 20 innings and Jokisch has been a little shaky in his last couple of starts, but the bottom line is these two guys have been some of the better starters in the KBO this season.
Give me the Kiwoom Heroes and the cheaper price.
