While the Lotte Giants have a respectable record entering tomorrow’s contest against the NC Dinos, the Giants are far back from first in the KBO.
9.5 games back, the Giants will do everything in their power to take down the Dinos, who sit happily in first place with a 32-14 record.

Veteran KBO pitcher Kim Dae-woo gets the nod for Lotte. In 14 games this season he is 0-1, with tomorrow being his first start in his career with Lotte. Originally drafted in 2003, Dae-woo has spent time in the outfield and at first base for the Giants.
Na Sung-bum is the leading home run king for the Dinos this season. With 13 dingers to his credit, he is second in the KBO in home runs.
Offense isn’t necessarily the Giants’ strong suit, but Jeon Jun-woo has 9 home runs to his name this season. The Giants have received a ton of offense from Jun-woo and he should be a huge factor in this contest.
Aaron Altherr of the Dinos is one of the most consistent hitters on the team and in the league. With 46 hits to his name in 156 ABs, Altherr has been hot since signing with the team in 2020. If the Giants want to win this game, they will need to keep Altherr’s bat at bay.
